Today I have a rather unique tag to share with you.  The birdcage is a non Stampin' Up die cut called "Birdcage" from Ranger.  I was inspired by a blog post I happen to come across "Pickled Papers".  All the other embellishments come from SU.  My large flower can be made with our new die cut in the Occasion Catalog called Sprial Flower #129379.  I do suggest you use a hot glue gun to adhere you layers  My bird and leaves are from our Bird Builder Punch #117191.  One tag has a half lollie and the other I pinched up a Paper Doilie.  Which one do you like best?  I used a couple of ribbon embellies, Linen Thread and 5/8" Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon (ret).  My H/B comes from Itty Bitty Banners #126257 with the matching framelit #129267.  Oh, I have a correction.  The paper flower at the top is non SU 

Now you're going to ask me what I plan to do with these beautiful tags.  Well, I'm already thinking Craft Show and I thought they will make pretty bag or box embellishments for someone special.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope this gives you a few ideas and inspires you.  If you have any questions please email me and I will be glad to help.  If you need to place and order (and don't forget Sale A Bration) please click on the link below.  Have a wonder stampin' day.  Until next time.  Toodles

Click Here to place your order


Today I have another Valentine's Day Card to share.  It's a simple layout, quick and easy.  My cardbase is Whisper White, matted with a piece of Raspberry Ripple  It was embossed with our Fancy Flower Embossing Folder (127751).  I attached one of our Paper Doilies (129399).  I folded it over my Raspberry Ripple piece.  I did find that my mono did not want to work on the doily, so I ended up using a piece of sticky strip.  My ribbon is 5/8" Marina Mist Satin Ribbon (ret).  I punched squares with our Postage Stamp Punch (122344).  Used dimensionals to adhere them.  My hearts were cut using two different framelits.  The larger heart came from our Circle Card Framelit (133480) and the smaller one comes in our Hearts A Flutter Framelit (130159).  The designer paper is retired.  I'm sorry I don't have the name for you.  I'm thinking it was our last Valentine's Day Designer Paper from last yearr.  I used lots of dimensionals to adhere the squares and hearts.  I love the dimension that they give  

My sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (128748/127802).  I used our Word Window Punch (119857).  I punched a small 1/8" hole at the top and attached it with a safety pin,

Valentine’s Day Card


Hello Folks.  Happy Day to ya.  We have had some warm days here in
St. Chalres,

Thank goodness the snow is almost gone and Goldie (my dog) can finally stiff the ground again.

WOW! It's almost Valentine's Day.  I have a cute card to share using our Hearts a Flutter stamp set #131922/129252.  My cardbase is
Whisper White and I have it layered with another piece of WW using our Famed Tulips Emobssing Folder #121809.  I hope you
can see it but in the left bottom corner I used a couple of our Paper Doilies and folded them in the shape of a heart.  You could easly make this into a pocket card.

My focal point is stamped using White Embossing Powder and setting it with our Heat Tool.  I used our
matching Hearts Framelits #130159 to die cut the hearts.  My ink color is Riding Hood Red. The word "love" was
cut using our Thinlets die cut and attached with some Tomboy glue.

My ribbon is retired pieces of Riding Hood Red and White Organdy ribbons.  For pizzazz I used some of 
our Basic Jewels.  I will stamp Happy Valentine's Day on the inside but you could use this card as an
anniversay card as well.

ARE YOU READY?  The Occasion Catalog is in full swing and Sale A Bration is right around the corner.

MOJO Sketch With Label of Love


WOW !!  It's cold out here.  I hope all of you are keeping warm.  Looking forward to some warmer days.

Today I have this weeks MOJO Sketch to share.  I used some of our new In Colors for this year – Crisp Cantaloupe and Baked Brown Sugar.

Embossed my first layer with the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder #129984 and topped it with a 2" strip of Baked Brown Sugar Designer Series Paper #130136.

I needed a layer of white so my hearts would show up, so I decided to use one of our Paper Doilies #129399.  You know how I like girly girl cards.  LOL  I used two framelits for my hearts.  The larger one is from Hearts A Flutter #130159 and the two smaller ones are from The Circle Card Thinlits #133480.  My designer paper is from the new In Colors Designer Serieis Paper #130136.  For pretties I attach various sizes of our Pearls Basic Jewels #119247.

My focal is our Oval Framelits #129381.  When I nest layers I like them to be close in size.  Ours is a little larger than I like so I decided to add some piercing to fill that negative space.  Ugg!.  Negative space can drive me crazy!!!  I used our Paper Piercing Pack (Occasions) #129387.  My sentiment is Label Love Stamp Set #130619/130622

My bow is Calypso Coral Bakers Twine #125573.  For the center I used our new Candy Dots (Brights) #130931

Thanks for stopping by.  Stay warm.  We have a couple more days before the heat wave hits us (30 degrees) LOL!  Spring is looking better and better.  Take care.  If you need supplies please shop in my Stampin' Up web store On Line 24/7.  Just want to say again that I appreciate you guys.  Have fun stamping!!!  Until next time.  Toodles



Faux Tile With Summer Silhouettes



Hello Folks. . .  Happy day to ya.  Today I have a wonderful technique to share with you.  I fell in love when I first came across it.  It's called a faux tile technique and is easy to do.  This is a standard A2 card in Coastal Cabana (one of our new In Colors this year).  I've got some pictures to show you just how easy this is.  Here we go!!


Cut your Whisper White layer at 4 x 5 1/4.  You will need your SimpleyScored Scoring Tool #122334
and the coordinating 
Simply Scored Diagonal Plate #125586
Place your paper in the corner with the 4" on top, score down the middle
from corner to corner,  score on each side of your middle line at 2 and 4

.  102_2766

Turn your paper with the 5 1/4" side at the top and score
down the middle and on each side at 2 and 4"


Now to make your template do the same thing again and
cut out a "V" on your scored lines


Place your template on each spare and sponge with Coastal Cabana


This is what you will end up with.  So so pretty, don't you think.

I used two stamps sets.  My leaves and flowers are from Summer Silhouetts #132082/126447 and my sentiment is from a retired set.  I needed something that would fit in my tag.  The tag is cut with one of our Apothecary Accents Framelites #127003.  It is nested on a piece of Coastal Cabana cut again with the Apothecary framelit.  I cut the circle off and then cut it down the middle, adhered the top and bottom.  I cut a 3/4" circle with our circle punch and placed it behind the tab.  I thought it needed a little something else so I stamped a butterfly from Papilion Potpourri#132058/123759 and punched with our coordinating punches.  Viola' you have a stunning card.   

I hope I didn't confuse you and you're able to make your card with ease.  If you have any questions, please email me.  If you need product please shop in my OnLine Store 24/7 at the link below.
