BRUSHO meets Rose Wonder


I just love this pairing of our new Brusho with the Rose Wonder die cut image!  What do you think?  It’s a little artsy, and not at all hard to do with the new Brusho powders.

Watch all about Brusho here: Stampin’ Up Brusho Video

Super, super easy to accomplish, but with WOW results!  Who doesn’t love that?

To use the Brusho, simply tap some powder in the general areas that you want the rose color, then the leaf color.  Spritz with the Stampin’ Spritzer and allow to air dry.  If you would like to use the Heat Tool to speed up the drying process, feel free!  Then I would use the Fine Tip Glue pen to adhere the rose die cut image onto your card.  Finally, do your stamping LAST so the spritzing doesn’t make it run.


Don’t forget my March special….

Petal Palette From the Heart Card

Today I’m bringing you a card from my most popular, by far, bundle of the Occasions catalog!  The Petal Palette Bundle!  It has such sweet and soft images that are fun to stamp as solid or to color in.  IMG_8720


I just love stamping sayings on cards that are good for many occasions.  This would make a perfect card for many such occasions.  Who would you send this card to?

Thanks for stopping by!

Let the Good Times Roll – Stampin’ Up


I’ve got a doozy of a card for you today!  This one features the Let the Good Times Roll bundle and lots of bright colors!  Wouldn’t this just be the highlight card for a little person’s birthday!?!?! 😉  Or at least I’d like to think so!  hahaIMG_8698

The inside pop-out mechanism can be a little tricky to put together, but if you watch the YouTube video made by Stampin’ Up, you’ll be in a lot better shape: Let the Good Times Roll Video  Ultimately, I had a super fun time making this card and it will be feature at my upcoming Fancy Frills class on Friday!  I hope the ladies love making this card!


Don’t forget all March orders are eligible not only for Sale-a-bration goodies, but also for a FREE gift from me if using the hostess code!  The fun adhesive backed sequins were used to decorate the front of my card!

Lots of Lavender Sympathy Card – Stampin’ Up

I really don’t like to think about needed Sympathy cards, but they are nice to have on hand when you need them, am I right?  It’s tough to create them when the occasion arises, but if you always keep them on hand, then you’re prepared.  Today, I have for you a super simple, easy to replicate Sympathy card.


This card uses the Sale-a-bration Freebie stamp set Lots of Lavender as its feature stamp set.  The flowers do not need colored in as it seems, but are stamped!  The soft colors really speak comfort to me and that’s what I’m hoping would be passed on to the receiver as well.

The little notches in the edges of the card are done with a 1/2″ circle punch and allow the linen thread to stay tucked in nicely on the side of the card.  No getting stuck on the envelope!

Hope you like today’s card!

Card to Celebrate a Special Lady

I made my mom a super fun card to celebrate her 60th birthday!  Now that I gave her the card and her birthday is over, I am now able to post!  How is it possible that my very own mom is 60 years old.  I assure you she is much younger at heart, and is the mom everyone wishes they had.  She is my biggest Stampin’ Up business supporter and she is always pitching in a helping hand when I procrastinate on my class prep!  Thanks for all you do, Mom!


Here’s her card…so, my question before you scroll down is: does it remind you of anything?  I created it with something special in mind!


This is the inside of the card!  So fun!  I loved using these colors for her card!  They worked so well together!

So, here was the inspiration for the card…the beautiful new LOVE postage stamps!  I am a stamp junkie and when I saw these, I knew I had to have them!



For the inside of the card, I made the “th” out of part of the Happy Birthday die cut.

So, what do you think?  Do you like my rendition of the LOVE stamp?  I have such fun making (and giving) cards to those I love!  Especially my mom!

Thanks for stopping by!

Myths and Magic Suite – Stampin’ Up

OK, so at first glance, I wasn’t sure about the Myths and Magic Suite.  But, then as usual, Stampin’ Up swayed me into purchasing the bundle with the coordinating papers and I’m hooked.  Look how easy it is to create multiple cards using each and every paper in the collection!  This card pattern could be easily duplicated using other Designer Series Paper options from Stampin’ Up!  This is a great card design for pretty busy patterns that are hard to do too much with, but are beautiful, like these!  I’m also digging how this card is made with fairly minimal supplies as well… a win win in my book!


Are you a mythical creature fan?  What’s your favorite…unicorns, mermaids, dragons?!?!?  My boys just think these cards are so much fun and that makes my heart happy!

And, we’re still in the throws of Sale-a-bration which means with every qualifying purchase you can get a freebie or two… or three depending on the size of your order.  And I’m throwing in a freebie as well for the month of March!


Hope you enjoyed today’s project!

Joyfully Yours,
