Lovely as a Tree Father's Day


This was a Workshop card for last night's workshop. I love how easy it is to be an artist using Lovely as a Tree, Memento Black ink, an Aqua Painter and a Stampin' Pad ink puddle! Look at that tree-it's gorgeous and anyone can do it! It's very quick, too! Using the Stitched Framelit to cut out my work of art really ups the artistry on this Father's Day card!


The So Saffron layer of my card has Crumb Cake backgrounds using Timeless Textures, one word of my sentiment on top and another that shows up well using a Shimmery White Classic Label punch.

Thanks for looking today! If you like my card, I'd love to see your comment!

Father's Day



 I received my Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. What makes it Dynamic is that it's very thick and it makes a pattern that is very deep in the card stock. I spritzed my card stock before embossing so it really grabbed the paper. I love it! You need to make a different "sandwich" on your Big Shot, but it's very easy!


My sentiment is from the Many Manly Occasions stamp set from the May 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit. I love my Paper Pumpkin kits! I get a new stamp set each month!

May Pals Blog Hop--Stepping Up With Textures




Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for May 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes. This month we are featuring projects that are “stepped up” by using textures or fun techniques. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.
You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.


I added texture to my Balloon Celebration birthday card by taking those Balloon Bouquet-punched balloons and running them through the Big Shot using the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. All of the balloons fit in one pass through!


My background paper from Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper also gives the card a little dimension. What do you think? I'd love for you to leave your comments below!

Use my Online Store any time you are shopping for Stamping' Up! products.

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!

Golden Butterfly Birthday



Excitement has been building over the past few weeks as Stampin' Up! Demonstrators were allowed to look at the upcoming Annual Catalog 2017-2018 online! It arrived in the mail just yesterday and I had it spiral bound so I could look it over many, many times over the next year!

One of the best things about having the catalog is getting inspired by all the samples. This stamp set is not new, but the card shown on page 149 IS a new way of using it. I love the gold, black and white embossing powder on the Crumb Cake card stock! My card is a little different shape, but the same stamps and techniques. 


Doesn't the White embossing powder remind you of lace? I love this neutral color scheme! It makes for a beautiful birthday card for someone special.

Thank you for looking. I hope you will take a moment to leave me a comments. Don't forget to check out my Online Store for all of the Clearance Rack and Retiring Items, some at sale prices! Snap them up while you can!
