Beautiful Peacock – Sale-A-Bration

Yesterday was my Customer Appreciation event and we used the Beautiful Peacock stamp set that you can receive free with a $60 (not including taxes and shipping) order during Sale-A-Bration to make this card.

It stamps so beautifully!  We used Pacific Point for the base card and Lemon Lime Twist for the accent color.  There are also several other new items from the Occasions catalogue that we used for the card.

The Lemon Lime Twist panel was embossed with the new Simple Stripes Textured Impressions embossing folder.  Don’t you love those bold lines it creates?

The sentiment piece and the layered piece were punched using the two new Scallop Circle Punches – one is 1 1/8″and the other 1 3/8″.  The scallops are smaller than the scallops on the current scallop circle punches.

The guests received one of these tea bag holders with some English Breakfast and Earl Grey tea.

Shop my online store for your Stampin’ Up! purchases and redeem your free Sale-A-Bration item – my store is open HERE.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Paulette’s Christmas Cards

I honestly do not know where the time goes.  I believe I mentioned that I would post some of the cards that Paulette handed out at our potluck and I think this is the first opportunity that I’ll be able to do so.

Here’s one that she made for Brenda.

And this one was for Carole.

Lovely cards, Paulette.

Thanks for stopping by today, it’s just started to sprinkle snow and I hope it stays that way – just a sprinkling – happy stamping!

Spooky Cat

Spooky Cat is a delightful stamp set in the Holiday Catalogue with a matching cat punch in the bundle.  I couldn’t resist this bundle and absolutely love the punch.

There is also a matching designer series paper called Spooky Night with many cute images for Hallowe’en.

The card base is Cajun Craze with a Basic Black mat and a layer of the DSP.  I also cut a strip of the DSP and used across the centre of the card.

I punched the cat out of another piece of the DSP and popped it onto a piece of Cajun Craze that had been embossed with a retired polka dot embossing folder.  This was adhered to a Whisper White circle and then onto a Basic Black circle.  The Cajun Craze and Whisper White circles were cut out with the Layering Circles Framelits and the Basic Black circle was cut out with the Stitched Shape Framelits.  I finished it off with a rhinestone collar for the kitty.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Dragonfly Dreams Extension

Today’s card is an extended card using the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.

Open up the card and you have dragonflies flying up the card.

The card base is Pool Party.  You will need two pieces of the card stock cut 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  The Whisper White piece is cut 3 3/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5″ and 10″.  Fold on score lines and add the images inside.  I cut the dragonflies in Island Indigo and stamped the background with Pool Party.

Place the folded card with the 1″ strip on the top facing.  Adhere the larger portion to a piece of the Pool Party card stock.  Add adhesive to the 1″ strip and position the other piece of Pool Party on top, lining it up with the other piece.

I decorated the front of the card with a piece of the Subtles Designer Series Paper Pack.  Add some Whisper White twine and then adhere to the front of the card.  Cut out a circle using the Stitched Shapes framelits.   I stamped the dragonfly onto a piece of Vellum using Island Indigo classic ink and cut out with the framelit.  This piece was layered onto another dragonfly cut with Pool Party card stock.  Adhere to the stitched circle framelit with dimensionals.  Pop up the circle on the front of the card with dimensionals and finish off the card with some rhinestones.


  • Stamps:  Dragonfly Dreams
  • Paper:  Pool Party, Island Indigo, Whisper White, Vellum, Subtles Designer Series Paper Pack
  • Ink:  Pool Party, Island Indigo
