Bella and Friends

Hello, my stamping friend.
I am sharing a card I made 2 weeks ago during Crafting Happy Hour at local wine shop. We  used Bella and Friends stamp set. I love this set and needed to have it right away as my dog  name is Bella. We created 4 cards using this stamp set, but this one may be my favorite. I love the sentiment on it: I I'll be your up when you are feeling down.
This image on a stamp has a parrot, but I cut stamp in 2 pieces so I can you Bella just with balloon.
Bella and balloon are both colored with blander pen and ink pad.

Happy Stamping!

Team Stamp It Valentines Blog Hop

Hello my stamping friend and thank you for stopping by. Today is a day for another team Stamp it blog hop and theme for this month is Valentine. It is hard for me to believe Valentine Day is just around the corner. I am not sure about you, but for me time sure flies and holidays comes faster each year. This makes me realize I need to have my game plan together very quick. I do send Valentines cards every year, and this year will not be an exception. This means I need to design cards that can be mass produced, beautiful, feature new exciting products and easy to mail.
Here is my 2 for 1 cards.

Both cards are using the same supplies, have the same layout and feature Sending Love Suite. The new stitched framelit make the greeting stand out. They still looks very different because of orientation.
Portrait card:

Landscape card:

How Tos:
  • Card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4 in real red, scrap for heart
  • Crumb cake: 4 x 5 1/4, scrap for heart
  • Designer paper: 3 3/4 x 5
  • Whisper white - largest stitched oval framelit
  • Glimmer paper 3/4" strip and peace for small heart
Possibility with different designs of the paper in this stack are endless. And I absolutely love the font in this stamp set. Now only one thing left - come up with e message for the inside of the card. What do you normally write inside the card for Valentine's Day? I would appreciate if you leave me a comment and share your thoughts about design and what to write inside. And you will have a chance to win a prize.

Thank You for stopping. For more great ideas - continue hopping:

Beautiful You - Happy Birthday

Hello, my stamping friend and Happy Friday.
Did you have a chance to see new Occasions catalog?  If you did, you probably have your favorite stamp (or few). I always have very strong favorite stamp in the catalog by just looking at it first time. When I first saw Occasions catalog during OnStage event in November - my heart almost stopped when I saw "Beautiful You" stamp set! And imagine how I fell when prize patrol was for that stamp and I did not win it! But... Lady at my table won this set and she did not like it at all (I can not even imagine that), and she agreed to trade it later with me for another stamp I won that day.
Here is the image form the catalog - very beautiful soft look:
This is the card I created:
The idea came form my friend Stephanie, She designed a card with similar layout and this stamp. I decided to change the colors a little - and use Sweet Sugarplum.

  • Basic Grey – 4 ¼” x 11”, 4 ¼” x 2 ¾ “ 
  • Whisper White – 2 ½ x 4” 
  • Sweet Sugarplum: 4 x 5 ¼ “ 
  • DSP: ½ ” x 2 ½ “, scrap for dress and hat 
  1. Create your card base by scoring a 4 ¼ x 11” piece of cardstock at 5 ½ ”
  2. Stamp flower in Sweet sugarplum ink randomly on 4 x 5 ¼” piece of sweet sugarplum cardstock. Adhere stamped piece to card front.
  3. Stamp lady image with Basic grey on whisper white piece and on scrap of DSP. Cut the dress and hat from the dsp piece, adhere to the white cardstock. Stamp sentiment under the lady image in sweet sugarplum. Adhere ½” of dsp to the bottom of white piece. Adhere white piece to the basic grey. Wrap ribbon around.
  4. Attach stamped piece to the card from with dimensionals.
  5. Add small pearls to accent the dress and hat. You can also add Wink of Stella.
How about other colors for this layout?
What is your favorite stamp in new catalog? Please leave me a comment.
Happy Stamping!

December Paper Pumpkin

Hello, my stamping Friend and happy New Year!
December Paper Pumpkin came just before Christmas. This month kit is an album and is great to highlight all the memories from 2016. If you like me - and not a big fun of scrapbooking (well, I love it, but it looks time consuming so I never start it), this kit is a great way to start. Just go through your phone pictures, select few for each month, print them - and you will have great 2016 overview!
Here is the video of the kit:

Do not delay - work on it this week!

This time I will use kit as intended. there will be no alternative projects.
If You never tried Paper Pumpkin  - now is the good time to try. Next month kit will be Christmas one! As always - no obligations. You can cancel or skip a month. To subscribe - click HERE.  Contact me with any questions.

 Happy Stamping!
