Heartfelt Blooms

I used the Heartfelt Blooms Sale-A-Bration stamp set for today’s card.  I also paired it with the new Tailored Tag Punch which is part of the Truly Tailored bundle from the Occasions catalogue.

I used Smoky Slate for the card base.  I added a strip of the Powder Pink Fresh Florals  DSP  to the left side of the card.  The image is stamped with Powder Pink on a Whisper White panel and then adhered to a Smoky Slate panel.  The sentiment is also stamped with Powder Pink and then punched out with the Tailored Tag punch.  I punched another piece from Smoky Slate, cut it in half horizontally and layered it behind the white sentiment piece, then popped it up on the card with dimensionals.  I also ran the Wink of Stella over the flower to give it a bit of sheen. So easy to put together!


  • Stamp Set:  Heartfelt Blooms (Sale-A-Bration)
  • Paper:  Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Fresh Florals DSP
  • Ink:  Powder Pink
  • Accessories:  Tailored Tag Punch, Wink of Stella, Dimensionals

Birthday Blooms Crayon Resist – Card from Roseanne

It’s always nice to revisit some tried and true techniques and we used the crayon resist technique for this card recently at stamp club.

The image from Birthday Blooms is stamped on glossy white cardstock using Black Staz-on ink.  Next, you use a white wax crayon and outlined the image wherever you want the ink to resist.  Apply the ink with sponges over the cardstock and then use a paper towel to rub over the image to remove the excess ink and the image is beautifully outlined in white.

Adhere this panel to a piece of Berry Burst cardstock.  Add the beautiful new Powder Pink Love Mini tinsel from the Love Mini tinsel Trim Combo Pack (the other color is gold), around the left side of the card and tie a bow.   Adhere this panel to the base Sweet Sugarplum cardstock.

Roseanne’s Card

It’s always a treat to have club members share their cards and this is beautiful card was made by Roseanne.   She used the Wetlands and Sheltering Tree stamp sets for her card.  Thanks for sharing, Roseanne!

Petal Palette – Casing the Catalogue

Hands down the Petal Passion suite in the Occasions Catalogue is my favourite!   Have I said that before – lol.   There are still some of the items in the suite that I haven’t used and I just brought out the Memories and More cards to case this card from the catalogue for our team swap.

It was easy to put the card together and I altered the colors from the image in the catalogue.  I stamped a yellow bird and added some of the green glimmer paper that was available from last year’s SAB.   The Memories and More package is excellent for gift tags, a quick card and much more.  It definitely is worth the purchase.


  • Stamps:  Petal Palette
  • Paper:  Whisper White, Petal Passion DSP, Pear Pizzazz, Green Glimmer Paper
  • Ink:  Black Memento
  • Accessories:  Memories and More cards, Petals and More Thinlits, Light and Dark Daffodil Stampin’ Blends.

Bubble Over U Fold Card

At our team meeting today, we made this u fold card using the Bubble Over stamp set.

I first made a u fold card several months ago and for some reason it didn’t appeal to me, but it has grown on me over the past while.  I decided to give it another try and am now having fun making them.

We used Calypso Coral for the card base and cut out the bottles from the Bubble and Fizz Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration item).  We completed the card with the Celebrate framelit, from the Celebrate You thinlits, also a Sale-A-Bration item (Level 2) using Bermuda Bay card stock.


  • Stamps:  Bubble Over
  • Paper:  Calypso Coral, Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Bubble & Fizz DSP (Sale-A-Bration)
  • Ink:  Calypso Coral
  • Accessories:  Celebrate You Thinlits (Sale-A-Bration)

Number of Years Eclipse

Colin will be going to celebrate Susan’s mother’s 100th birthday today and I hadn’t made a card!  I just finished this card in time.

I used the Number of Years stamp set for the floral background and love how it turned out.  I then cut the numbers out with the Large Number framelits and popped them up to create the eclipse effect using the foam strips.

Happy 100th birthday, Jean!

Petal Passion Designer Series Paper Meets Amazing You

I spent a relaxing morning recently making this card.  I enjoy coloring as I find it very relaxing and if you like to color, then this Petal Passion DSP from the Petal Passion Suite is a must for you.

I also love Vellum and after coloring the DSP, I added a layer of Vellum to soften the colors and added the sentiments from the Celebrate You Thinlits from Sale-A-Bration.  Here’s how I put the card together:

Paper Preparation:

  • Cut Soft Sky card stock 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″
  • Cut Black Card stock 5″ x 3 3/4″
  • Cut DSP 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″
  • Cut Vellum card stock  5 1/8″ ” x 3 5/8″, score at 4 7/8″
  • Cut out the You and Amazing with the Celebrate You Thinlits on Black card stock


  • With the Stampin’ Blends, add color to the floral images with the following Blends:
    • Old Olive
    • Daffodil Delight
    • Calypso Coral
    • Pink Pirouette
    • Real Red
  • After coloring in the images, use the Light Pool Party Blend to color in all the background white spaces

Putting it together:

  • Fold over the score line on the Vellum piece.  Add adhesive to the small fold strip and adhere to the back of the DSP from at the top.
  • Add a glue dot to the centre of the yellow flower and then press the Vellum piece over the DSP
  • Adhere the DSP/Vellum layer onto the Black card stock
  • Add a strip of Pool Party seam binding over the lower portion of the panel and secure on the back
  • Adhere to card front
  • Adhere the thinlit pieces to the front of the card and stamp the words from Amazing you under the You
  • Complete the card with a Yellow Glitter enamel dot to the centre of the yellow flower to hide the glue dot

You can make this card too!   To purchase the items for today’s project, SHOP MY ONLINE STORE HERE.

Bubble Over

Today’s card uses another one of the fun bundles in the Occasions catalogue.  Bubble Over has the stamp set and co-ordinating framelits – and one of the free items in Sale-A-Bration you can claim is the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper that co-ordinates with the bundle.

The colors in the DSP are bright and cheery and the framelits are awesome!   I chose Bermuda Bay for the card base and added a panel from the DSP adhered to a Whisper White panel.  The bottles were cut out with the framelits from one of the sheets of the DSP!   So neat.  I cut out two little bottle caps and one of the straws.  There are also Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes that were added to the card.


  • Stamps:  Bubble Over, #145868, Photopolymer (Bundle with the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits, #146082 and save 10%)

Petal Palette Black and White

I knew it would be coming when I saw the Petal Passion suite and the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper in black and white which is my favourite combination.  I couldn’t resist making this card.

How easy is it to make this card.  Simply stamp the floral image with black ink and cut out with the co-ordinating thinlit from the Petals & More Thinlits.  Cut out the beautiful “filigree” piece from the thinlits and position under the floral piece which has been adhered to the card front with dimensionals.  Complete the card with some classic pearls.

Thanks for stopping by on a beautiful mild day and happy stamping!
