The Absolutely Cutest Rose Stamp Ever!!

Oh dear. Every time I get a new stamp set it becomes my favorite!! Does that happen to you? The Happiest of Days stamp set is now my favorite 🙂 I mean, look at these great fonts! And what about the absolutely cutest single rose stamp ever?

Here the rose is stamped with the Basic Black Archival Ink, and then colored in using a Blender Pen and Flirty Flamingo Ink. The green here is the subtle Pear Pizzaz. And the background piece is Powder Pink cardstock. These colors blend beautifully together.

Here is a photo of the complete stamp set. I haven’t used the cake or the little package stamps yet, but aren’t they the cutest?  I’ll be getting to those very soon!

Happiest of Days Clear Mount Stamp Set
Item No. 143796

Pretty Pointer: When you have a special image or a favorite image, raise it up by using a Stampin’ Dimensional. This adds interest and gives depth to your card front.

In the photo below you see that I first stamped the left side of the card with the single rose stamp. Then for emphasis (and because this is the absolute cutest rose stamp ever!) I stamped another rose on a separate sheet of cardstock, cut it out by hand, and affixed it right over the previously stamped image using a dimensional. Then I put a sweet little pearl in the center.

Bright and Bold Daisy for Tic Tac Toe!

Today is another Tic Tac Toe Challenge, and it’s super fun! Here’s our challenge board:

For my card today I’ve picked the last column on the right: diecut, floral, yellow. I’ve used the popular Daisy Punch as the focal point 🙂

The Whole Lot of Lovely designer series paper makes a beautiful background for the yellow daisy! I love black and yellow together, don’t you?  The background on the top of the card is Watercolor Paper with a Daffodil Delight wash.

Pretty Pointer: Create a quick and soft background by lightly washing over some Watercolor Paper. I use an Aqua Painter and pull a little color from the lid of an ink pad. When the pad is closed, press the top and bottom together (squeeze the closed pad). This will transfer some of the ink from the pad to the lid. When you open the pad you have some ink ready in the lid. Grab a bit of this ink with the Aqua Painter and run it across the paper for a soft wash!

Here are all the items I used to make my card today.

Truthfully, I’m just getting this post in. Yesterday was a crazy day here. The power went out in half of our house and we had to have an electrician come fix it. (I’m so thankful that my son-in-law is an electrician! He was so sweet to come after work and fix our problem!). And, I just returned from a little trip to Pennsylvania and I left my computer power cord there! Aaaagh!! I have to run out shortly and get a new power cord. Right now I’m down to very little power, so I’m going to post this now and come back and add a few things when I get my new cord! But this card is so cheery, I just had to get it posted for you!

And, don’t forget about the $5 Bonus Coupon you can receive for every $50 order! Only available until July 31st…don’t miss it!

Thanks for stopping by today, and be sure to pop over to our Tic Tac Toe Challenge and enter your card! Which row or column will you use??

Gorgeous Cards for July Prettypapercards by Mail!

The Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set is one of my absolute favorites in the annual catalog, and the coordinating Happy Birthday Thinlits Dies are classic. That’s why I’m offering this stamp set for my July Prettypapercards by Mail!

People love coming to the card classes that I hold in my home, and I love having them! I would love to have YOU come to one of my classes! But because that’s not really possible unless you live in the San Diego area, I want to bring my classes to YOU!

Prettypapercards by Mail is just that ~ we will make cards together! I design 3 cards all using this month’s Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set. I will send you the stamp set and all the papers, die cuts, ribbons and embellishments you will need to make the cards I’ve designed.  You will also receive via email a pdf tutorial with detailed instructions and photos and comments from me on how to make the cards! Sometimes I’ll include a video, depending on the month.

And, on top of all that, I will include for you a fourth card, the one shown above, using the same stamp set, along with a personal note!

Here’s what one customer said about my card kits:

“Everything arrived today in perfect condition.
I love all of the cards, tips, and how your instructions are so easy to follow.

Ruffled Ribbon Birthday!

Today’s card is such a fun birthday card! Sometimes I like to make different birthday cards, out of the ordinary, something unexpected.

My unexpected element today is a bold Berry Burst ruffled ribbon. I’ve mentioned how I love the crinkled seam binding and I like to ruffle it loosely on a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive. Underneath the ribbon I’ve tucked a strip of Lemon Lime Twist card stock punched with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. These two colors look SO good together!

Actually, my husband helped me design this card! He’s very artistic and many times he advises me when I’m unsure of a layout. I really like the way he arranged the daisies, I would never even think of adding them! Pretty neat to have a designing husband 🙂

Pick a “B” Pals Blog Hop!

Welcome to the June 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month’s theme, Pick a “B,” features projects inspired by Babies, Birthdays and Brides to name few. You may just get a glimpse of new catalog products while you hop with us today.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

The “B” in my card today is BIRTHDAY!! We always need birthday cards, don’t we, so this is a great “B” to choose. This sweet little “happy birthday” sentiment is from one of my new favorite stamp sets called Happy Birthday Gorgeous. I mean, even the name of the stamp set makes you want it, right? 🙂

Today I’m using the Petal Garden Memories & More Card Pack. This pack contains lots of individual cards with designs on the front and the back. This is a 3″ x 4″ card with a wreath on it and a light flower pattern on the edges.

I angled this card on top of a panel of Berry Burst card stock which was embossed with the new – and darling – Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

A few die-cut leaves, a little wooden element, and a pretty ribbon finish off the card. The color theme for my card is from pages 56 and 57 of our annual catalog: Rich Razzleberry, Calypso Coral, and Old Olive. I’m crazy about this combination!
