Sneak Peek Watercolor Tags


No Peeking! I know some people have trouble not peeking or shaking or trying to guess what is in a package! I don't, but SOME people do ;-)  Well, give them a little help with these cute tags. 

Meant for Christmas gifts (but they could be used any time) I watercolored them in Real Red (looks pink, right?) and Old Olive. I added some Black Vintage Crochet Trim and Old Olive 1/8" ribbon and they are ready to tie on a package. 

My tag base is Watercolor Paper and I used Black Stazon and the Merry Little Labels stamp set. I perfectly punched the tag using the coordinating Everyday Label Punch.  You will be able to purchase the stamp set and punch in a bundle on September 1st.


I hope you enjoyed seeing a sneak peek of what will be coming out next month! Use my Online Store to order any time!

Halloween Note - Not Too Scary!




I don't do scary Halloween, or even much Halloween at all, but I thought of using the brand new Card Front Builder Thinlits from the new Holiday Catalog for a Halloween sky, rather than a Christmas sky. (Catalog goes live September 1st).

There are so many possibilities with this die set! They can be winter or fall or, as I've shown today--Halloween! And that cute little deer! Can't wait to make more with this set and the matching Carols of Christmas stamp set. Order both as a bundle and save 10% starting September 1st!

146036 Wood-Mount Carols of Christmas Bundle  $52
146037 Clear-Mount Carols of Christmas Bundle   $45


Thank you for visiting today! I hope when you are ready to shop for your Stampin' Up! products that you will use my Online Store.

August Pals Blog Hop: Cut It Out



Welcome to the August 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out”. Participants will feature projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.


I imagined a sideways card with a circle cut out on the right side and my sentiment peeking out from the inside and some kind of floral arrangement because of our CUT theme. But this card didn't come out the way I first imagined, yet I love it!

The floral arrangement easily created using the Everyday Jars Framelits and my Big Shot was much better suited to a tall card. This is the first time I used Vellum Card Stock as a jar, I believe, but it made sense with a Crumb Cake card base. Those stems stamped on the base were supposed to be "in" the base, but here they ended up looking like the stems that I didn't use in my arrangement.


I added a little Wink of Stella on the darks parts of my blooms for a little shine. Also, my dragonfly has sparkling wings and body, too!

I hope you loved seeing my creation! Please use my Online Store any time you are going to order Stampin' Up!
Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on September 13, 2017. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Don’t forget to leave us a comment. We’d love to hear what you have to say about our creative “Cuts”.

Thinking of You Beach Scene


When it's time to let someone know you are thinking of them, it's nice to send a serene card. I like how Colorful Seasons lets you do just that. My "water" is from Timeless Textures using Marine Mist ink. My sand is a combination of Timeless Textures and Work of Art using Crumb Cake ink.


Add a cheerful yellow umbrella, chair and lemonade and you are in the business of letting someone know you are trying to lift their spirits. The drink has a little shine from a clear Wink of Stella pen.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope to encourage you to make our own cards and send them off for encouraging others.

When you need Stampin' Up! supplies, I'd love it if you use my Online Store.
