Easy Handmade Card for April Blog Hop Featuring Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set


Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the April Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from the United States, Canada, Australia and United Kingdom. You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Katie Johnson's blog. Welcome one and all. 

The theme for our blog hop this month is anything "girls" -- so a Mother's Day card it is!!

Easy Handmade Card Blog Hop Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set

I fell in love with this sheet of Pineapple Punch flowers on the Grapefrut Grove background from the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper! My original plan for this card was to feature the Bloom by Bloom bundle (Occasions, pp. 24-25) on the front of the card, however, I decided to switch it up and stamped the flower on the inside of the card with the beautiful sentiment from Incredible Like You (Occasions, p. 21). You have to admit that this is a great collection of flower stamps, dies, and DSP!!

Easy Handmade Card Blog Hop Bloom By Bloom Stamp Set

Then I found myself in quite a pickle when I searched my current stamp collections for a "mother's day" sentiment for the card front. You may recognize the Happy Birthday die (Annual, p. 217) here. I snipped apart "Happy" and "day" die cut from a piece of Lovely Lipstick. I carefully stamped together letters from the Make A Difference stamp set (Annual, p. 178) to form the word "Mother's." I am not gonna lie, this was quite tricky on my first use of these tiny letters, but the Stamparatus really made this work!!

So pretty. This card also features a paperclip and silver rose from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit (Annual, p. 178), a partial Pearlized Doily (Annual, p. 192), a peek of Grapefruit Grove using the Starburst punch, a half moon of Pineapple Punch from the Circle Punch  (Annual, p. 210), and a strip of Grapefruit Grove 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon (Annual, p. 183) to disguise the cut of the DSP slightly off center to line up with the sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I sure hope you have enjoyed my Mother's Day card. Leave a comment below with a trail to find you so I can see your creations.

Easy Handmade Card featuring the Basket Weave TIEF for Easter

Hello my crafty friends. Today I want to share with you an easy handmade card for your Easter holiday greetings.

In class this month, we made these beautiful cards using the Lovely Lattice stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog and created a frame using the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies with the Gingham Gala 6x6 Designer Series Paper. (Click HERE for a link to the blog showcasing the card.) After cutting out the frame, there was a decent length of scrap left, perfect for this card.

Easy Handmade Easter Card Basket Weave Balmy Blue


The basket is from a large scrap of Sahara Sand card stock and the texture is created from a sweep of Early Espresso ink on the front flap of the Basket Weave TIEF.

All the eggs are created from scraps of bright card stock (like Balmy Blue, Flirty Flamingo, Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight) and punched with the smaller of the Balloon Punch or the small oval die. (Oh so cute is the cracked egg in front of the basket.)

I hope you have enjoyed my card today. Forgive me for not using a current sentiment. I used one of my all time favorite retired sentiments, Easter wishes. And the ribbon is the out of stock Sale-A-Bration Heather Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack in Highland Heather.

There is still plenty of Sale-A-Bration products left and there are still 4 days to place your qualifying order to earn one, or two, or several. If you do not already have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I would love to be yours!! You can reach me at my contact info below.


Stamp on!

Hearts for All Occasions with Meant to Be Stamp Set


Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the March Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop! I am privileged to be participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the United States, Canada, Australia and United Kingdom! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Terri Stewart's blog. Welcome one and all.

This month all our projects will feature birthdays. I wanted to try a double Z fold card and I really wanted to use the Meant to Be stamp set to show how the hearts could be used for something other than Valentine's day. This is a picture of the card front.

Hearts for All Occasions with Meant To Be Stamp Set using Balmy Blue

What do you think about this super cute DSP and that Balmy Blue heart? Love it. The card base is Lovely Lipstick cardstock.

For the inside sentiment, I stayed with the Balmy Blue to tie in with the card front. Also used a snip of the Pearlized Doily behind the heart. If you would like to see the measurements and more details, please let me know in the comments and I will share in a follow up blog post or email them to you,

Handmade Card using Lovely Lattice Stamp Set


Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the February Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop! I am privileged to be participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the United States, Canada, Australia and United Kingdom! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sandra Roberts' blog. Welcome one and all. 

February is the second month of Sale-A-Bration and the theme for our blog hop this month is to feature any one of the amazing free products from the Sale-A-Bration catalog in our projects. I had several products to choose from, but I wanted to color so I selected the Lovely Lattice Stamp Set (p. 15). Coloring is so peaceful to me.


Handmade Card using Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set Lovely Lattice in Balmy Blue


This first card is a "peek-a-boo"card, meaning that the featured image is stamped on the inside and a window is created on the front of the card to "peek" inside the card. The window is created with the second largest oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits that fits inside the largest scallop oval and then use both to create the window frame.

I keep reaching for the Gingham Gala 6x6 Designer Series Paper (DSP), this time in Balmy Blue (pp. 34-34 of the new 2018 Occasions Catalog). So pretty. I could not believe that I had not purchased the Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends yet so I had to improvise and use Light Pool Party with shades of Light Smoky Slate for the flowers. And for the dark flower around the frame, I used the Stampin' Blends and the Balmy Blue ink pad. The bow is the 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon in Whisper White colored with the Stampin' Write Marker. (Pool Party - more improvising!)


Handmade Card using Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set Lovely Lattice in Highland Heather


This second card is a "framed" card. I built the frame using the largest and third largest rectangles from the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits using the Gingham Gala 6x6 DSP in Highland Heather to match the flowers. The flowers were stamped around the edges of a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of cardstock using the Stamparatus. (I have a template. If you are interested, message me.) The bow is the 3/8 Classic Weave Ribbon in Whisper White colored with the Stampin' Write Marker. (Highland Heather) The sentiment is from Colorful Seasons.

So Hoppy Together Stamp Set for Valentine's Day


Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the January Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from the United States, Canada, Australia and United Kingdom! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Elizabeth Green's blog. Welcome one and all. 

The theme for our blog hop this month is to feature any one of the amazing free products from the new Sale-A-Bration catalog in our projects. (I hope you have received your catalog. It is fabulous!) I really fell in love with the cute little frogs from So Hoppy Together Stamp Set (p. 15), and I thought this juggling frog on a unicyle would make a perfect Valentine's Day card.

So Happy Together Stamp Set 2019 Sale-A-Bration SAB

The Gingham Gala 6x6 Designer Series Paper (in Lemon Lime Twist) and the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Back Sequins (in Grapefruit Grove) are found on pages 34-34 of the new 2018 Occasions Catalog. So pretty. This card also features hearts and the sentiment from the Meant to Be Stamp Set/Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies Bundle (p. 6).
