Valentine Cards


PUNCH OUT some Valentines using the sweet Love Blossoms Designer Series Papers!! I used a 1" square punch, Sweetheart Punch and Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  Because the designer paper is thinner than card stock, you can punch two sheets of the designer paper at once! Corrugated Card stock and Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper add interest and texture to this sweet, simple layout! Try it!

Rose Garden Thinlits Dies


Rose Garden Dies are sooo versatile! I die cut this classic out of the LIMITED TIME Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper, a FREE Sale-A-Bration item with a qualifying purchase till Feb. 15, 2016. It's paired with Basic Grey.


The envelope is from the same marbled paper pack and creates an upscale presentation! If you use your Envelope Punch Board and get used to it, making an envelope is a FLASH!!


This card is a true classic for almost any occasion!

Birthday Blooms


Here's a very happy Birthday wish! This is the Birthday Blooms Stamp Set of 8 images. It's a great design for coloring or watercoloring! I used an Aqua Painter and the ink from an ink pad.


In center of the rose, I used Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. (The camera didn't catch it.)

Botanical Gardens Bundle


LOVE this Botanical Gardens BUNDLE - it's stamps, framelit dies AND coordinating designer series papers ALL AT 15%  savings PLUS a FREE Sale-A-Bration item till March 31, 2016!! Such a great deal for lots of product!!


This flower dies is unique because the center of the petals pop outward! I put a dimensional under each petal.


To create this interesting designer series paper treatment, cut 2" into the long side of the paper and fold back the corners exposing the design on the backside. It's very easy and creates drama!

Guest Stamper - Judy


Check out this lovely sympathy creation by Judy Trigg, from my North Star Stamper group! She used the Rose Wonder BUNDLE and gorgeous Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper!


A perfect pairing for this message. The designer paper starts out at 4X4", a VERY economical cut when using 12X12" sized papers. Then, cut at an angle and separate for the sentiment. Very lovely card, Judy!

The NEW 2016 Occasions Catalog is STUFFED with great designs!! Tops on MY LIST are the Botanical Gardens BUNDLE and Wink of STELLA, magical pen! On this card, I die cut a stencil of the leaves and sponged the leaves onto the card. Next, I stamped the detail into the leaves - easy, because these are see-thru Photopolymer stamps! I love the look!


The center of the flower is die cut basic black cardstock. Before mounting the center, I lightly "painted" the black cardstock with the NEW "Wink of Stella," glitter pen!! It gives a nice PUNCH!!


Love these new products!!
