Falling Flowers Bundle

July 17th, 2016 , No Comments »



Hello My Crafty Friends – Today I have a beautiful card to share with you using one of our new stamp sets "Falling Flowers".  It has a matching die set called "May Flowers".  This is available in a bundle, you can save 10% when you purchase it as a bundle.  I love my color selection, Calypso Coral, a little bit of peach, pink and orange.  I aslo used our Old Olive for my lovely swril.  My base is Calyso Coral card stock nested with Whisper White.  The larger flower was stamped with "Flower Shop" and punched with the matching punch.  For my small flowers I used another one of Stampin' Up's punches.  I believe it has been retired for some time, but anything you have will do.  I fancied up the inside with one of my birthday sentiments from "Herb Expressions" and added a touch of the swril.

Hope you have enjoyed your week end.  As July comes to a close soon Stampin' Up will be getting ready to release the new Holiday Mini.  Normally we get to have a seek peek in August.  Looking forward to new fall and Christmas stamps and accessories.  If there is anything I can do for you, or you would like to place an order, please click on my link below.  May your week be filled with stamping fun.  Thanks for stopping by.  Toodles

2-Tier Box

July 3rd, 2016 , 1 Comment »


Oh Hello My Friends – I have a wonderful surprise for you today.  When I ran across this little 2-Tier Box on My Craft Place I could not resist it.  The original one I cased was much fancier but I used what supplies I had on hand.  Everything on My Craft Place is intricate and super duper.  Just love it.  The box has to be made from 12 x 12 cardstock, so I got to diggin and found some Rose Red with matching designer paper.  Of course the paper is retired.  All of my sentiments are from Stampin' Up but my top image is from Wee Stamps.  Isn't she quite the little lady.  If you love whimsy like I do you must visit Wee Stamps.  I colored my image with my copics using shades of warm gray, blue and rose red.  The bunny itself was done in cool grays.  Even though it looks difficult it turned out to be a simple design.  When I first saw this box I thought of my friend that I volunteer at the hospital with.  She will be so suprised.  I can't wait to give it to her.  Hope your week end was a good one.  You still have one day left.  If you would like to place an order for your Stampin' Up products please click on the link below.  So long for now and have a super duper day.  Thanks for stopping my.  Toodles

Hello Folks. . .  It's been a while.  Trying to get back in the groove.  Today I have a gift set to share with you.  I found this on Caroline's site a couple of days ago and fell in love with it.  This has been totally cased but you could use any stamp set that you like.  My stamp set is the new Garden in Blloom set.  It is beautful and gives you that watercolor effect without having to work to hard.  This gift  set comes with its own gift box, four all occasion cards with envelopes, four matchig 3 x 3 gift cards and four matching gift tags.  This is a two step stamping technique.  It can be a little challenging as I"m sure you know, but once you figure out how to match the images you're all set to go  For full instructions you can visit Caroline's site here.

I used Whisper White and Soft Sky card stock.  My inks are Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Old Olive, Pistachio Pudding, Pacific Point, Soft Sky, Tangelo Twist and So Saffron.  Whew a lot of colors.  Now for the good stuff, lots of pictures.





As you have probably already learned I'm not much of a saleman, but I do appreciate all your support.  If you would like to place an order I have the link below.  As we approach the last of our summer months.  I am looking forward to our Holiday Mini.  As a demonstrator I get to see it and order from it a month before you do.  So come August 1st this years Holiday Mini will be available to demonstrators.  This is the time I start planning for Christmas Cards.   My theory is it is never to early to start planning for Christmas.  LOL

Spring Flowers

Hello Folks. . . Hope you are having a wonderful day.  The weather here in St. Charles has been just perfect.  Spring here can be a little loopy at times, so I'm enjoying it while I can.  Today I have a pretty card to share using a little old and a little new.  The basket is from a retired set from some time ago and the new is our Pictogram Punches set with is matching punch  So cute.  My colors were inspired from a card I found on Chat's site "Me My Stamps and I".  The card base is Whisper White, matted with a Melon Mambo and matted again with a piece of designer paper from my stash.  Next is one of our paper doilies, so girlie.  My focal point was stamped on a piece of Solor White card stock inked with Memento Black Ink. This is a good piece of cardstock for when you are using your Copic Markers.  For my basket I used some Copic earth tones (that's the E seires of colors) and for my flowers I used our Classic Stamping Ink Pads in Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, and Coastal Cabana.  My stems are from another retired set called "Happy Together".  Added a little bling for my flower centers.  The sentiment is not SU it is a Verve set.  The ribbon also is retired.

Getting My Flower Fix

April 6th, 2015 , No Comments »

flowerfixHello Folks. . .  Happy Monday.  Hope you all are not too stuffed from all the great food yesterday.

Now that Sale a Bration has ended I'm moving forward.  Stampin' Up will soon be closing out this year and beginning another.  Retired stamps and accessories will be announced at the end of this month.  You will have the month of May to check your wish list.  I'm really looking forward to the start of our new year around June 1st.  Can't wait to see what Stampin' Up has come up with.  I'm a whimsy, flowery type of girl and I'm looking forward to some new stamps.  But today I turned to a couple of old Paper Trey and Verve stamp sets.  This one is a cutie.  I love stamping so I enjoy making my own designer paper.  Isn't it what it is all about after all.

My accessories are Stampin' Ups.  I used our Decorative Label punch for my sentiment and added a few jewels.  My color selection will me greatly missed.  It is our 2013-2015 In Colors (Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Slush).  If you want any of these, I suggest you place your orders soon.  These colors are beautiful and will sell out fast.  Check the Clearance Rack.  I thought I saw some of them over there.  Don't forget your ink refills so you will have these colors in your stash for some time to come. flowerfix1 

I appreciate all you do, so please place your orders at my OnLine Web store.  Click on the link below to place your orders.  I will publish the retired and accessory list as soon as I'm allowed to.  Thanks for stopping by.  My surgery is coming real fast.  Can't wait to get past these issues and get back to normal.  Take care – Toodles



For My Friends

April 2nd, 2015 , No Comments »


Hello Folks. . .  How are you today?  I'm sitting here playing with my card and enjoying the warm weather that we have had the last couple of days.  The grass is turning green, tulips are sprouting, and the yard is ready for the Easter Bunny.  

Today I have a card to share that is not Stampin' Up.  This card has been totally cased from Amy at White House Stamping using Verve stamps.  I'm a flowery girl and I love Julie's whimsical style.  I hope you do to.  The set is called "Making A Statement" and has matching dies.  Love it !!!!!  My card base is Whisper White, matted with Blackberry Bliss and matted again with a piece of Wistera Wonder designer paper.  Next layer is Blackberry Bliss and a piece of designer paper.  This came from my stash, not sure what brand or name it is.  The paper doily adds a girly girl touch.  The flowers are colored with my Copics, but you certainly could use Stampin Ups "Blendabilities".  It's so sad that they have had to withdraw these markers from the market. If you have them, use them until they dry up.  Hopefully it will not be to to long unitl they come up with a manufacturer and can offer these unique markers again. 

Hopefully over the next couple of weeks I will be getting my bladder issues addressed.  Can't wait to get back to normal. I miss my walking.  Thank you for checking in with me, I know it has been a while since I have posted anything.  Looking forward to Stampin' Ups new catalog.  I sure want to see more whimsy floral stamps. I hope they don't disappoint.  Take care, if you need supplies please check out my link at the bottom of this post.  All orders are greatly appreciated, That's what keeps me going.  Have a wonderful blessed day.
