Despite the nasty weather here in Kansas City, I ventured out for a workshop Saturday afternoon. Below are the two cards that we made.


This first card features SU’s Background stamps, Scalloped Border Punch, and the Butterfly Die Cut for the Big Shot.

The next card is one I have used for a workshop before and it’s a hug hit so I did it again! I LOVE using layers, so this my opportunity to do that! This card also features several punches, ribbon and using dimensionals!


Until Next Time…..Happy Stamping!!!

I have a couple of things I’d like to post tonight.  At Christmas, I gave a gift to a friend and realized that I hadn’t taken a picture of it before I gave it away!  The picture I’m going to post now isn’t the complete ensemble though. I covered this box and filled it with Bath and Body Works products.  Body wash, lotion, body spray and bubble bath.  I had tied the different colors of ribbon on each product.  For that part you’ll just have to use your imagination!  I have placed the empty Frap bottles back in the box for effect!


I used the SU! DP called Ski Slope, added the striped ribbon and the chocolate chip wide ribbon around the bottom.  The Oval on the front was punched out with my Nestabilities.


Thanks for stopping by!

SC219 Simple Butterfly

I found some time today to make a card.  I had to make it in stages around my comings and goings but alas I was able to finish it!  This card is for this week’s sketch over at SCS!  Here is the sketch….


One of my new favorite stamp sets from the current SU! catalog is this one called Simple Friendship.   Butterflies are quite the thing right now and I think this one is very elegant!  I paired it with some GREAT new 12×12 DP from Stampin’ Up! called Parisian Breeze.  This paper is textured and gorgeous!  Here is my card for this sketch!


Stamps:  Simple Friendship

Paper:  Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Baja Breeze, Parisian Breeze DP, White

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky

Until Next Time…..Happy Stamping!

This morning as I caught up on reading some of the blogs I subscribe to, I ran across this video by Patty Bennett of Patty’s Stampin’ Spot. I thought this was a great tip for using the 12×12 paper and the XL dies from Stampin’ Up! She got the idea from Lisa Freeman of Stamping With Lisa and then made it into a video!
