Yes, this sweet card really says I’m Praying for You. I love cards like this because I do pray for people and I like to send them cards to let them know that I care about what they’re going through. This is a perfect sentiment for that.
The Thoughts & Prayers stamp set is one of my favorites because it has several great sentiments like this one. I have used this stamp set so many times ~ it’s really a classic! Feel free to click on the picture below to get more details.
Pretty Pointer: To highlight or focus on a sentiment, cut it out in a nice shape and lift it up on Stampin’ Dimensionals to bring attention to it! For this sentiment I cut it with one of the Stitched Shapes Framelits and went even further by cutting a larger circle in a companion color. This really emphasized the sentiment.
For today’s card I’ve used the very pretty Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. You know our designer papers coordinate perfectly with our card stock. That’s one of the stand out things about Stampin’ Up! We are specialists in color coordination 🙂
You know, I’m wondering if you might want me to pray for YOU? If so, just email me at [email protected] and I would love to pray for you. I so appreciate all of my blog readers – YOU – and would be happy to be able to do something for you 🙂
Today’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge Board is really fun. I love all of the elements on the board! You know if you follow my blog that for this Challenge we choose squares on the board to form a tic tac toe. I’ve chosen the last row across for my tic tac toe.
Can you spot the vellum? The leaves in the flower bouquet are actually made of imprinted vellum! They, along with the colored flowers, are from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit. This kit is just packed with fun embellishments, including the blue scalloped velvet ribbon! (Love! Love!)
I’m so glad Kraft Paper was included on this board. I’ve used it behind the watercolored panel and it really adds depth. There are also two kraft die-cut flowers in the flower bouquet. They were cut with the Sweet Cake Framelits Dies. I also used a few sequins 🙂 The Kraft Paper was some I had in my stash.
Thank you for stopping by today, and please pop over to tictactoechallenge.com and play Tic Tac Toe with us!!
Lavender ~ a sweet smelling flower with beautiful light purple blooms ~ can’t you just smell it from the description? Well, today I have a card using the prettiest stamp set of a bouquet of lavender tied with a bow!
This is such a fun stamp set…why is it fun? Well if you look below at the stamps, you’ll see outline stamps (the flower bouquet and the floral sprig) and the rest of the stamps are ones that fill in parts of the outline. When you hover over the outline and stamp, it appears like watercoloring! It’s really fun!
And, this stamp set is FREE – yes free, with an order of $50! We have so many great free items during Sale-a-Bration. Basically it’s a time when you can place an order and get free stuff just for ordering! Who doesn’t love that? And this Lots of Lavender stamp set is one of those free items. There are other great items for you to choose from. To see what they are, CLICK HERE.
For today’s card I fussy cut the lavender bouquet so that I could feature it on top of a Metallic Foil Doily. Where is the metallic foil? Well, I turned the foil side down for this particular card and have the white backing side showing up. I love the pattern on these doilies, and white just looks nice with lavender 🙂

Do you know someone who needs congratulations? Someone who needs to hear a “well done”? Well, this is the perfect card! I made this card for a member of my team who has done a fabulous job, and I’m so glad I had these Celebrate You Thinlits Dies. I got them FREE with my recent order, and I just love them!
For this card, I used a sheet of the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper. Those little dots you see are silver foil and are a part of the beautiful paper, and wow are they pretty! I used some Bermuda Bay card stock for the “amazing” sentiment, and some star sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment to add more bling! Aren’t these colors gorgeous together? The paper color is Calypso Coral and the Bermuda Bay (blue) looks striking against it.

Do you like decorating your home? I love decorating the inside of my home, and my front porch. I usually keep a wreath on my front door, and for the past year or so I’ve had a wreath with leaves and little soft white buds. They look like tiny cotton buds. For each season I’ve added some special trim to my wreath.
For Valentine’s Day I decided to hang a small heart banner across the center opening of the wreath. I cut the hearts using the large heart from the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies, and I used the fabulous Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper for the hearts.
I cut out several hearts (one is from plain Melon Mambo card stock) and clipped them onto some of the pretty Gold Love Mini Tinsel Trim with Gold Library Clips. Bling bling!! I simply tied the ends of the trim onto branches of the wreath. Easy!!
When we moved into our home we painted our front door black. It was a bold move but now I’m so glad we did it. It looks good, and everything I hang on my door looks great against the black!
Order the items needed to make this wreath and earn a FREE SALE-A-BRATION GIFT!! Below are the items I used for this project. If you order these four items you will qualify for a FREE Sale-a-Bration item! Yeah ~ who doesn’t love FREE product!
There are SO MANY FABULOUS THIGS in the new 2018 Occasions Catalog!! I haven’t been able to try even half of these fabulous products, but of what I’ve played with I already have favorites and I want to share them with you! Today I’m going to start with my First Five Favorites. I’ll follow up later with more, but I had to show you these right away!!
The Beautiful Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon (above)– my favorite item in the whole catalog!! I LOVE this color and I LOVE this ribbon! It ties easily, has bling and is perfect for all my projects!! (click the photo to shop for this item!)
2. Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper – this paper is is amazingly beautiful. One side of each sheet has very very pretty floral and cake designs which include sparkly foil bits. The other side has more more pretty patterns but without foil. This paper has so many uses, from fancy to humble, for birthdays, weddings or just a card that says “hi.” I’ll be using it a lot, you can be sure! (click the photo to shop for this item!)
3. Perennial Birthday Stamp Set (Clear or Wood)– darling and versatile birthday set for spring. Trendy fonts and flowers that can be colored with our new Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers! Coordinates with the Perennial Birthday Project Kit, but such a great classic on its own. Love! (click the photo to shop for this item!)
4. Sure Do Love You Clear-Mount Bundle – The 2 best things about this bundle (well, 3 things if you count the fact that as a bundle it’s 10% OFF!!!!) are the elongated heart (so fresh and flirty!!!) and the adorable Lots to Love Box Framelit! This elongated heart is different from the standard hearts we see at Valentine’s Day, and it gives your projects a modern flair! And the Lots to Love Box is like a Valentine Heart Box is so cute! I’ll be giving out lots of these little boxes filled with heart treats! I just love that I can make my own box and don’t have to buy something to hold Valentine candies. (click the photo to shop for this item!)
5. Heart Happiness Photopolymer Stamp Set – I know you’re thinking, “What? More Hearts?” Well, yes! I mean, LOOK at these hearts! They’re SO adorable! We can talk about the pretty heart of flowers, or the elongated striped heart, or the bundle of tiny hearts… And the hearts coordinate either with the Lots to Love Box Framelits mentioned above or the Sweet and Sassy Framelits (traditional heart framelits dies). Hearts aren’t just for Valentine’s Day, they’re for so many other occasions. We won’t tire of this year-round stamp set!! (click the photo to shop for this item!)

A ribbon share is an opportunity for you to get a little bit of the new Stampin’ Up! ribbons without having to buy an entire spool! I cut the spools of ribbon into 2-yard lengths and you get 2 yards of each ribbon. This is a great way for you to have lots of ribbons on hand for your crafting without having to make a big investment!
How does it work?
I’ve chosen ALL of the new ribbons in the 2018 Occasions Catalog for your ribbon share. (Except, there is one new ribbon on page 5 of the new catalog that I have not included in the share as it is not available to order at the time that the catalog goes live. As soon as this ribbon becomes available I will let you know and you will have an opportunity to order it from me.)
You will receive 14 yards of ribbon for only $12, plus $3 shipping (see below). If you want to participate, email me with the words RIBBON SHARE in the subject line and I will send you an invoice via email. (Please watch your inbox for the invoice and also check your junk mail in case it goes in there!) To secure your place in the Ribbon Share, you must pay the invoice within 24 hours of receipt.
I will place my order for all ribbons on January 10th. Please allow until January 25th to receive your shares as I have to order the ribbons, sort, cut and mail all of the ribbons after I get them (but I hope to get them out sooner!).
