Stampin’ Up! Makes It Easy To Send A Beautiful Bouquet

I have never met anyone who doesn’t like receiving a fresh bouquet of flowers unless they are allergic to flowers then I totally understand.

But I’m sure, everyone would love to receive a beautiful bouquet on a handmade card.

I love this stamp set and I am super happy that Beautiful Bouquet was carried over into the new Catalog along with the coordinating Bouquet Bunch dies.

This card was made with Lovely Lipstick as the base of the card and layered with Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock.

The Classic Stampin’ Pads that I used were Lovely Lipstick, Call Me Clover, Pineapple Punch, Gorgeous Grape and Memento Tuxedo Black.

Look at all the wonderful sentiments that you can use with this stamp set as well as so many different flowers.

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!

Stampin’ Up! Above the Clouds Card Idea

Yesterday the New Stampin’ Up! catalog went live!  And that means you get to order brand new stamp sets that are AWESOME!!!!!

Today I feel like I am floating on a cloud because now I get to share with you new card ideas with all the new stamps that are available in this new catalog.  So, I decided for my first card share it should be the “Above the Clouds” stamp set.

This stamp set is so fun because you get to color the balloons however you want.  I used a variety of Stampin’ Blends and Classic Stampin’ Pads.

You can purchase this set in a Bundle which saves you money and you get the Hot Air Balloon Punch so no fussy cutting 🙂

If you haven’t looked at the new catalog just click on this link and start making your ordering wish list, place your order and then join me floating on the clouds when you start creating all new wonderful cards and paper crafts.

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!

Stampin’ Up! Bella & Friends Card Idea

I am so happy that I got this stamp set before it retired.  Bella & Friends is the cutest set that has the sweetest dog “Bella”.

This is a Z-Fold card and I used Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper along with Whisper White Cardstock, and Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I colored this cute bird with a variety of different Stampin’ Pads that I blended using a Blender Pen.

If you want this really cute stamp set and designer series paper, you better hurry because they will be retiring on June 3rd.  Don’t miss out, order yours today!

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!

Handmade Cards Are Beautiful

Handmade cards are beautiful but not all handmade cards are happy.

This card was difficult for me to make only because my God Mother just passed away and I needed to make a card to send to my God Father.

I ordered this stamp set Lasting Lily with coordinating framelits & ribbon during Sale-A-Bration.  This set is simple and beautiful for a Sympathy card.  Highland Heather and Old Olive ink was used along with Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock.

While I was making this handstamped card I was remembering all of the fun times growing up celebrating holidays and just hanging out on weekends with our families.  And recently I really enjoyed our phone conversations.  Aunt Dot will be missed but memories will last forever in our hearts.

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!

The Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus is Awesome!

I have to be honest with you.  I just got the Stamparatus and I’m asking myself why did it take me so long to get the best stamping tool on the market?

Last night I held a Stamping Workshop at my local Brewing Company.  JoAnn and Shaun have the perfect facility to host my events.

In my workshop I had everyone use the Stamparatus.  They all have used different types of this stamping tool but not Stampin’ Up!’s

What everyone liked about the Stamparatus was that after you decorated the front of the card, you didn’t have to worry about messing up all the work that was put into making the front of the card when stamping the sentiment on the inside of the card.

I’m sure that you have made this mistake also by either having not enough ink on part of the stamp and when you try to line it back up, well it rarely every goes back in the same spot.  Does this sound familiar?

Well, that’s not the case if you use the Stamparatus.  As long as you keep your magnets on top of your cardstock, you can just re ink you stamp and try again.  It stamps perfectly every time 🙂

Just think of all the paper that you are going to save from all of those little stamping mistakes.

To see a video on how the Stamparatus works, all you need to do is head on over to my Shopping Page at and if you like what you see in the video, you can purchase this great tool by just clicking the ADD TO BAG button.  It’s that easy to get this awesome tool in your craft room.

Until next time friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!
