Jars of Love (Helping Me Grow)

Have you fallen in love with the Stamping' Up! Jars of Love stamp set and coordinating thinilits?  I have!  I paired the set up with the terrific background stamp, Writing Notes and the beautiful flower stamp, Helping Me Grow.  I used the frameilt to cut out a jar on the very vanilla paper and stamped a jar on whisper white and placed it on the back.  The flowers just stamped right over the top.  If  you need any of these products, visit my site

Blooming' Heart

Love is in the air this summer.  At least for me it is!  In just a few days I will celebrate 22 years of marriage to a terrific man.  He has loved me unconditionally throughout the years.  For this I am grateful and truly Blessed.  I better get hopping on that anniversary card!  Any suggestions on your favorite stamp sets to use?
For this card I wanted to stay with all white.  I used the hearts embossing folder, ribbon, and pearls to add dimension.  The Bloomin' Heart was a breeze to cut out because I used the precision  plate with my Big Shot.

Work of Art

What could be sweeter then giving a card that you created from the heart? I matched the ink & paper colors - Elegant Eggplant, Tempting Turquoise, and Sweet Sugarplum.  The stamp set is Work of Art and the Punch is Sweetheart.  I added a few silver sequins for a little glitz and mounted it all on Perfect Plum cardstock. This is going to be one of the cards for my Stamp A Stack class on Wednesday, June 15th.  Look at the calendar on my site:

Pop of Pink

It was so much fun to use this new designer series paper, Pop of Pink and the Washi Tape the matches!  The two sided paper was a prefect piece to use for the birthday card.  I cut  1" into the middle of the paper and folded it back into soft triangles.  Then I added a flower from the Botanical Gardens Thinlits, some washi tape for a little more color and added the sentiment on the new Duet Banner Punch!  Get all the supplies for this card at

Live Laugh Love

Here's my Motto: Live, Laugh, Love!  There is no better way to live life!  What's your motto? I love the little seeds floating off to be sown.  Not sure what stamp set they are from?  Don't look with your flowers, check out your balloons!  That's right, I said balloons.  Go to Balloon celebration and grab the little stamps that are for making the balloons 2 dimensional and turn them into seeds.

Swirly Scribbles

It's a swirl of colors and designs.  I needed a quick and easy card to send to a dear friend for all the support she has shown to me these last few days.  I picked up my new Thinilts called Swirly Scribbles quickly put them to use in my Big Shot.  I love how the three new In Colors, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach pop off the card.  I used the Timeless Textures stamp set to add in the Emerald Envy background.  The final touch was the sentiment that I found in Sitting Here.  I love how Stamping' Up! products compliment each other and make my crafting so quick and easy.  Come join me for my June card class on Saturday, June 11 @ 10:30 AM.
