Happy Cinco de Mayo

I hope you are all doing well on this Festive Sunday.

Today I want to share a card that I made as a Thank You Note for a friend who sent us some New Mexico Green Chili Seeds to plant in Florida.

I love this stamp set but unfortunately it has been retired. This set was created by one of Stampin’ Up! Million Sales Achiever Erica C. and I think it was the best stamp set ever. That could be because I love all kinds of Mexican Food and everything that goes along with it πŸ™‚

I had to white out the inside because I forgot to take the picture before I wrote my note. When I lived in New Mexico I went to a big stamp show and they had the NM Zia stamp and I thought that would make the perfect part of my inside greeting for our NM friend.

Just take a look at how good the chili seeds grew. We started them indoors in our Idoo hydroponic garden then transferred to outdoor planters.


Can you see those chilis? We were excited and they tasted yummy!!!

Have a Happy Cinco de Mayo

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the Sunshine!

Sweet Citrus Handmade Card Idea

You name the citrus fruit and you will be able to make a card with this Stamp & Die set from Stampin’ Up! called Sweet Citrus. For the cocktail glass I used the stamp & die from Nothing’s Better Than bundle and the Cheers is from an oldy but my go to set called Happy Hour.

This card was made using Granny Apple Green and Old Olive inks and DSP. I have been going through all of my Designer Series Paper and I found a fun design with the main color of Pumpkin Pie and another Paper with Grapefruit Grove. These colors will be the next I choose to create more cards. I also found matching ribbon πŸ™‚

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the Sunshine!

Happy Easter

Today I want to share the Easter card that I made for my mother-In-law. I didn’t want to put the sentiment on the front of the card just in case she wanted to keep it out after Easter.

I have so many beautiful spring color patterned paper, that I decided to make 1/2″ strips and use a few different colors and it turned out pretty nice πŸ™‚

The butterflies are from the Best Butterflies Bundle which included Best Butterfly Stamps and Build a Butterfly Dies

As you know the current Stampin’ Up! Catalog is coming to a close on May 1st and the Best Butterfly Stamp set has already sold out and no backorders will be taken, BUT the dies are still available as of me sending out this post.

If you haven’t looked at the catalog in awhile or you have some stamps on your wish list, place your orders while they are still available. Inventory is getting real low on the favorites and like I said items once they are sold out, they are gone.

The new Annual Catalog goes live on May 2nd, 2023 and runs through till April 30th, 2024. It is filled with Wonderful Stamps, Dies, Paper and Embellishments. I can’t wait to share them with you.

Until Next Time My Friends,

Enjoy The SUnshine!

Love Cats Card Idea

Stampin’ Up! has the cutest stamp set called Love Cats. This card was made for Valentines Day but you can also just use the images for any type of card you need to make for a cat person.

This stamp set does not have coordinating dies or punch so it is easier to just stamp the image and use a shape die/punch to cut out or if you really feel like “fussy cutting” you can always use Stampin’ Up! Snips

I think all of these images are just so super cute, and if you agree this set can be found in the Mini Catalog that is still available until April 2023.

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!

Share A Milkshake Card Idea

Happy Friday My Friends,

I hope you all had a wonderful week. I have been in my “Craft World” creating some cards using stamps and coordinating dies from The Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog.

This is the one of my creations that I just have to share with you using the Share A Milkshake bundle.

Isn’t this bundle great? Think of all the different kind of cards you can make. My next card is definitely going to be an ice cream sundae or a Waffle Cone ice cream. I promise to share what I create.

Have a relaxing weekend!

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!
