Hands down, the Petal Palette Bundle in the Occasions Catalog is an absolute GEM — a keeper in my book! My craft room will never be without these beautiful stamps and dies.
This card comes together so easily! Stamp the large flower image in Black Memento ink on Whisper White Thick Cardstock. I used the sponge dauber and some ink from each ink pad to ‘sponge’ the colors onto the floral bouquet. It’s so easy, and so pretty!
Stamp the sentiment on white cardstock as well, and use the Big Shot to cut out the oval shape around the sentiment. Mount a 4″ by 5 1/4″ piece of Petal Passion DSP onto a Berry Burst card base, and then build the card from there up. I absolutely adore working with these beautiful images!

The new Whisper White Narrow Notecards from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog are my new favorite-shaped notecards! The package comes with 20 notecards and envelopes, and they’re just the right size for a cute birthday or thank-you card.
Each of these cards was made by simply adhering a panel of that beautiful shiny Sweet Soiree Designer Series paper to the front of a narrow notecard. The panel measures 2 1/2″ by 4 1/2″. After that, I simply added a sentiment using either a punch or a die, including the new Everyday Label Punch, the Triple Banner Punch, or the Stitched Shape Framelits Dies.
I love the sentiments from the Picture Perfect Birthday Photopolymer Stamp Set!
I trimmed a small piece of DSP and added each to the flap of the darling envelope to coordinate! So cute, and a great gift to give to someone you love. Or send them out yourself!
What could possibly be in a box this beautiful? How about 16 coordinating birthday cards and beautiful file dividers — one for each month? I am offering two upcoming classes for you to create this beautiful kit!
Do you ever get that panicky feeling when you realize someone’s birthday is here, and you forgot to get a card in the mail? The Perennial Birthday Kit is a great way for you to get organized!
This gorgeous lined box has twelve file cards, one for each month. How easy to put the names of those loved ones for whom you need to send a card, right on the correct day!

Aren’t they beautiful? And they’re even nicer in person, with lots of shiny gold accents that make the cards so rich-looking! And of course, you receive 16 envelopes! The dates for the classes are Thursday, January 18 at 6:30 pm, and February 24 at 1:00 pm. The cost is $37 for 16 cards and the decorator box, which includes the use of my stamp set, inks, adhesives, and other supplies. Just let me know if you want to sign up! Make a date with a friend!
Just a few more days until the SU! Occasions Catalog goes live (January 3), and Sale-B-Bration begins! Here is a sneak peek at a new Sale-A-Bration set called Lots of Lavender, and yes, the best part about this set is that it is FREE with a $50 purchase!
I used an embossing folder on a 5 1/4″ by 4″ panel to create wavy texture as a backdrop for my lavender bouquet. On a 2 1/8″ by 4 1/4″ panel, I stamped the lavender bouquet in Basic Grey ink. I then started using the two-step stamping process to ‘color’ in the flowers with Wisteria Wonder, the ribbon with So Saffron, and the leaves with Pear Pizzazz. I used a Paper Pumpkin sentiment for the large Thanks across the bottom. The two-step stamping makes it so fun and easy to get a watercolor feel to the bouquet!

I LOVE the Merry Cafe Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! And I especially love the way it coordinates with the Coffee Cups Framelits Dies and the Coffee Cafe stamp set. There are so many ways you can use these three products!
I mounted a piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock on a card base of Thick Whisper White. On a smaller Whisper White Panel, I used the Winder Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with my Big Shot to add that cute snowflake pattern. Again with my trusty Big Shot, I cut out the holly leaves and coffee cup from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper. I used Real Red Glimmer Paper to cut out a few small berries. So cute!
I stamped the sentiment “Christmas Cheer” with Real Red and Garden Green, and then cut out using the framelits dies. Finally, I stamped some yummy whipped cream with Crumb Cake ink and a cute straw with Graden Green ink and cut them out with the Big Shot.
I jazzed up the whipping cream with some Wink of Stella, and assembled the entire card! Love it! Check out the Retiring List on the Stampin’ Up! website — both the Merry Cafe and the Winter Wonder embossing folder are retiring soon! Get them now — they’ll be classics you can use year after year!
I’ve made a simple yet elegant card using the Christmas Pines stamp set with the coordinating Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies.
I started with a base of Whisper White thick cardstock and then a layer of Old Olive Cardstock on top of that. The Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Papers are so versatile. I love the black and white plaid look with the Old Olive — very trendy! I created a shiny gold foil pinecone to go with the delicate olive green pine boughs.
The sentiment was stamped on an oval cut out from the Stitched Shape framelits and backed with a black scalloped layer from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. I accented the card with an Old Olive Mini Chevron ribbon.
I love the simplicity of this card. I hope you do, too!
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. I don’t remember a busier November/December! School, craft fairs, and spruce container production has really taken a chunk out of me. But I’ve finally gotten a chance to do some creating. And wow, have I had some fun!
This first card is heat embossed with gold embossing powder and the fun deer from the Merry Patterns stamp set. I have loved this set from the moment it became available as a special promotion by Stampin’ Up! Since it never appeared in any catalog, I expect this set to become a collector’s item. I’ve seen so many special projects using it!
Here’s another version of the card, using a different paper. Same idea and layout, but an entirely different look, don’t you think? The leaf is from the November Paper Pumpkin kit, and is perfect to match the Old Olive in the DSP
The gold embossing really adds a rich touch, don’t you think? The sentiment is from the “Half Full” stamp set, which I really love as well! Let me know which one you like the best!
And yes, these cards do make me VERY happy! Take a look at this brand new kit, called “Color Me Happy,” available November 1, that will showcase your artistic coloring talents using the brand new STAMPIN’ BLENDS!
I did the coloring with the brand new Stampin ‘Blends! I have never owned alcohol-based markers, not even when Stampin’ Up! featured them a number of years ago. So I was very excited about trying them myself. The new Stampin’ Blends, in a brand new, improved formula, come in 12 gorgeous Stampin’ Up colors, in both a light and a dark shade. Click on the video below to see the Stampin’ Blends in action!
The “Color Me Happy” Kit and Stamp Set are available in a bundle while supplies last, starting November 1. I had SO much fun putting these cards together! You get supplies to make 16 beautiful cards. The markers make it so easy to blend and shade, even for an inexperienced ‘blender’ like me. They’re so smooth and rich!

The colors used in this kit are Powder Pink, Pool Party, Night of Navy, and Pumpkin Pie. Those are the ones I ordered first, but notice you can get the entire set in one package as well!
Be ready to order this bundle and the Stampin’ Blends on November 1. Happy Coloring!
I knew I wanted the Merry Patterns stamp set the moment I saw it. I love every single stamp, and the versatility the entire stamp provides. You can go with the deer thing, you can go with the candle thing, you can use the beautiful big sentiment….or any combination thereof!
This card is built on a Basic Black card base with a layer from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Papers. LOVE the Old Olive and Black combination! The reindeer is heat embossed in gold, and the sentiment is heat embossed in white on Basic Black card stock. I added some gold mini sequin trim and Metallic Enamel Shapes to add a little bling.
Merry Patterns Stamp Set is still available FREE until the end of the month with a $300 order. It is exclusive and it won’t be found in any catalog. Get together with some friends and have a card-making session. When your party sales reach $300, the set is yours! Or make a single order over $300, and you automatically get the set!
