you’re the nicest…

03.20.2023…..Happy Monday my stampin’ friends! Sometimes all you need is a “background” stamp….and a maybe sentiment, and a few embellishments, and an embossing folder…but basically a “background” stamp! Well, that was my inspiration for today’s card….to create a card with a background stamp as a focus. I used Tahitian Tide and Pacific Point on the Timeless Tiles Stamp, which really made it pop! Hope this card inspires you to pull out your background stamps and start creating!

stampin’ fancy friday – birthday challenge…

03.19.2023…..Happy Sunday, my stampin’ friends! Today, I wanted to share a card that I created for this month’s Stampin’ Fancy Friday challenge! It’s a wonderfully festive “ Birthday Challenge”. Each of our team members created a fancy project with a birthday theme, using products from the current Stampin’ Up catalogs. How fun is that?!?!?

The Sentiment Silhouettes Dies include the cutest little candle dies, and I thought they would be just perfect for this birthday card! I used a Blending Brushes and a Water Painter, along with several ink colors, to create the coloful paper for the candles.

Be sure to join us to see what our Stampin’ Fancy Friday team created. We have 27 amazing projects to share, and each using their own unique interpretation of the challenge!

Then… create a card or project, with inspiration of your own (or use one from our team)…..using this sketch challange! Share your project on IG or FB and tag us by using #stampinfancyfriday or #fancyfridaychallenges in your post.

so very happy for you…

03.06.2023…..Happy Monday, my stampin’ friends! Today, I created a card with “bits & pieces” that I had leftover from other projects that I’ve been working on recently. Even the embossed card base was a leftover, too. The only “new” elements I used were the tag (created with the Tailor Made Tags Dies and the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder), and the flowers (created with the Cottage Flowers Dies, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, and Blushing Bride ink). Hope this card inspires you to create a colorful, fun card or project using those “bits & pieces” that you have left on your craft desk, as well.
