Fav color combo

I have always loved pink and brown together! Here is that combo using Pink Pirouette and the NEW  Baked Brown Sugar! I easily dyed the White Baker's Twine by pulling it thru the Pink Pirouette ink pad.

I love the Creped Filter Paper #129393 for creating punched 'n crumpled flowers!!

Oh, Hello Stamp set of 7 images

 #131931 Wood and #130733 Clear

"THE" mistake...

Did you find my mistake on this post from Saturday?? Here it is: the flame of the candle is upside down. I thought it was minor so didn't change it. Besides, if I send it to a guy he will NEVER NOTICE!! ha ha ha ;-)

Here is another variation on the same idea!

Did you notice the sentiment has a little phrase "EAT CAKE?" The Cupcake Builder Punch #121807 is a perfect pairing!

Simple Mainetance

I stamp almost daily. Once a month, I take all my Stampin' Up! Clear Blocks to the sink for a gentle cleaning with a drop of dish detergent. This removes oil and lotion from my hands that reduces the "cling" of the stamps. It's simple and quick maintenance to keep stamps firmly in place while creating. The clear-mount stamps have NO STICKINESS. They work like window clings. In between washings, I sometimes give a quick cleaning with the CLEAR BLOCK CLEANING CLOTH #121779. You always get the best results by caring for your tools!

Clear Blocks are available singly or in two different bundles.

Gift Enclosures

These are sweet, quick 3 X 3" gift enclosures that I love to pop into orders before delivering. I'm a STICKLER on ALWAYS verbally thanking my customers for their orders!!

The NEW Mosaic Madness stamp set and coordinating punch are THRILLING!! Such a different, fun geometric shape. I've used Soft Sky and Elegant Eggplant colors here...quite regal! Look inside-
