happy valentines’ day…

01.31.2022…..Happy Monday, my stampin’ friends! I just love making 3″ x 3″ cards whenever I have the chance, So…..today, I decided to make four, little Valentine’s Cards! I used the Sweet Conversations Stamp Set (from the Stampin’ Up! January – June 2022 Mini Catalog) for the sentiments, and…combined it with the Give It A Whirl Dies, to cut out the little hearts and the circle-shaped window. Hope these cards inspire you to create some fun, little Valentines for your family and friends!

Hope this inspires you to create a card or projects using an unexpected color combo, as well!

stamping sunday blog hop – “say hello to”…

01.23.2022…..Happy Sunday, my stampin’ friends! I can’t believe that January has almost come to a close! And…..it’s already time for another Stamping Sunday Blog Hop! For this Sunday’s hop, we are featuring projects created with products from upcoming Stampin’ Up! January – June 2022 Mini Catalog!

For my little 3″ x 3″ cards, I decided to use the new Heart & Home Memories and More Card Pack! This is such a wonderful selection of graphics, patterns, and sentiments, which are obviously great for scrapbooking and memory keeping. However…..I thought it would be fun to create some little note cards instead! With just a simple card base, and a few extra embellishments, I whipped up these little cards in a flash!

Hope this product challenge inspires you to create some quick and easy cards or projects, with some of your favorite products from this fabulous new catalog!

stampin’ fancy friday – birthday challenge…

01.14.2022…..Happy Monday, my stampin’ friends! Today, I wanted to share a card that I created for this month’s Stampin’ Fancy Friday challenge! It is a “birthday” challenge! And…..you can never have too many birthday cards on hand, so I was super excited about this challenge!

I love using a Water Painter to add quick washes of color to simple images that I’ve stamped with a Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. The Driving By Stamp Set (from the current Sale-A-Bration catalog) is just perfect for that. For a little unexpected twist, I used Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia, and Bermuda Bay to color those cute, little VW busses.

Hope this color challenge inspires you to create a birthdaycard or project with some of your favorite techniques and/or products!
