Flower Patch Note Card Set

Hey Stampers,

Is it as HOT where you live as it is where I am??? It has been in the mid 30’s (Celsius of course) all week and we are MELTING! If you aren’t aware, where I am in Newfoundland we are not used to this heat at all. Nobody has air conditioners or anything, and it is CRAZY! So lucky for me (and for you), my craft room is in my basement where it is a lot cooler - so I have had a lot of opportunity to cool off and stamp some fun projects! I am showing you today the Hostess gift I gave at my Club on Tuesday. It was a huge hit - take a look!!

So that is the cool packaging - isn’t it sweet??? I am SO in love with the Flower Patch stamp set and coordinating Flower Fair framelits. So I made these cute flowers with that, and then added it to a tag I made using the Banner Framelits and Hardwood stamp. Love that combo! Adds a nice rustic garden feel or something. Love it! So - do you want to see what was inside this fun bag!?!

Ta-da! 5 fun matching notecards! They are a big larger than a regular note card, at 4” square. Again, I used the Flower Patch and Hardwood stamps. I made my own DSP using the Flower Patch actually, and then used my Circles Framelits to cut it out! Love that look. Then each card it a bit different! 

Here is a close up of one of the cards. I just LOVE the Gold Bakers Twine, don’t you??

Well thats it for me today!! I hope you liked todays project. Thanks a lot for visiting me today and Happy Stamping!!

Sassy Work of Art Gift Tag

Hey Stampers,

At my Stamp Club last month, I offered some fun Ribbon Shares from the new catalogue to my gals. So, I ordered them and split them up and TONIGHT at Club I get to give them out!! I wanted to make them pretty (or course) so here is the fun packaging I came up with!! Love it!!

Cute and simple - my fav! I just LOVE the Gusseted Cello Bags that SU sells - you can fit a TON of stuff in them! Don’t these ribbons all look so beautiful in there?? I was just playing around with my color coach and came up with this color combo of Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive and Sahara Sand. I think its a winner!!

I was so tickled with how well the tag from the Chalk Talk framelits fit on the bag under the ribbon. I just gathered the bag under the bow and stuck the tag around it. So easy! I think one of my fav new tools from the catalogue is this Hearts Border Punch. The Old Olive piece is so nice as a trim - and then the tiny Champagne Glimmer Paper Heart?? Could NOT be cuter!!

Well thats it for me today! Hope you liked my fun tag and package. Thanks so much for visiting today and Happy Stamping!!

Kinda Eclectic Note Cards

Hey Stampers,

I am so excited because tomorrow night is my monthly Stamp Club! I just love getting together with my fun gals and having a wonderful time stamping!! The card I am showing you today is one they will me tomorrow night. I am SO in love with the Kinda Eclectic stamp set - its a must have for sure! So I want to show them how awesome it is too!! I paired it with the Flower Pot DSP and our awesome Note Cards and Envelopes! Take a look!!

Isn’t that fun? Love all the bold colors in this DSP. And every stamped image on this card is from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set! Isn’t that great? And nothing like a few banners of DSP to make a quick and easy card look just beautiful. And of course - I had to add some bling! This card has it with the new Gold Glimmer Paper and Gold Sequins. Love it! And where I used the Note Cards and Envelopes, you can see a little peek at the bottom of the picture where they will be decorating the envelope and using the Envelope Liners Framelits. I use them for EVERY card I send out!!

Well thats it for me today! I hope you enjoyed todays card. If you would like to make something like this (and you live in my area), please contact me and join us! Or if not, head on over to my online store and pack up some of these fab products for yourself! Have a great day and Happy Stamping!!

Sweet & Kind Koala

Hey Stampers,

Hey its me!! And yay its friday!! Hope you all have some fun stuff planned for this weekend! I have my Stamp Club on Tuesday, so I will be stamping this weekend making sure everything is ready to go! I am back today with yet ANOTHER project using one of the amazing single stamps from the catty! I don’t think I have ever bought as many singletons from a catty before! They are all just so great! The one I am showing today its Kind Koala. Oh Em Gee this stamp is SOOOO stinkin' cute!! I knew as soon as I saw it that it was a must have for me! Take a look!

Isn’t that so ca-ute!?!? Squeee!! I heart him. And I was pumped to use some of the NEW Blendabilities colors on him! The Smoky Slate trio was just MADE for this stamp I think (haha). I am still just learning to use these alcohol markers, but I am pleased with how it turned out! I think next time I will use even more of the dark color for a bit more contrast. And I used the Melon Mambo trio along with the medium Daffodil Delight for the sweet little flower. Love it! The first 6 colors are available for you to order RIGHT NOW and the remaining 6 colors will be available August 1st! Yay!

I wanted to brighten up this card, so the Sweet Taffy DSP was a perfect match! Love that fun Melon Mambo pattern. And I used the Scallop Tag Topper Punch for my stamped image and some Daffodil Delight that I embossed with the Arrows folder. SO fun!

Well thats it for me today! Thanks a lot for visiting - please come back again soon! Hugs to you all and Happy Stamping!!

Memorable Moments Golf Birthday

Hey Stampers,

My Mother in Law asked me to make a fun card for a friend of hers that was turning 70! And she just LOVES golf - so I was excited to create something celebrating her and her fav past time! I really like what I came up with!!

Isn’t that adorable!?! I have seen a bunch of different gold style cards over the years, but had never made one. I think my favourite parts of the card is the cute flag and my sun! The flag was made with the Petite Pennants punch, and then stamped with the cute polka dots stamp from Endless Birthday Wishes. My 70 was stamped with the Memorable Moments stamp set, and then I fussy cut them out and added them to my flag. Cute! And see that sun!? Its my fav image from the new Kinda Eclectic set! Such a fun stamp - and now its a sun peeking over the horizon on those early tee times! Hahaha

Well thats it for me this morning!! Hope you enjoyed my fun golf card. Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Stamping!!

Hey There Buds Catty CASE

Hey Stampers,

I want to send a shout out to all my demo friends on their way to Convention in Salt Lake City today! Last year I had the most AMAZING time at Convention, and I know that you all will have an awesome week!! I am sharing a CAS of a card in the annual catty again today. The Hey There Bugs single stamp is another awesome single stamp this year! I am loving all the single stamps this year. Take a peek at this sweet card!

This stamp is SUCH a fun one! I love any image I get to color with my markers and stamp once for a multi coloured look. When I made this card, I hadn’t yet gotten the new Polka Dot embossing folder with the HUGE circles - so I substituted with this old Cricut one that I have had for ages. I also used one of the retired heart clips from a last years Occasions Catty to tie my sweet Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Twine bow to. Love that twine!! Fingers crossed we get more colors of it soon!!

Well thats it for me today!! Thanks so much for visiting - have a great day and Happy Stamping!!

Calling All Heroes! A Super Birthday

Hey Stampers,

As SOON as I saw the Calling All Heroes photopolymer set online, I KNEW it was a must have for me! As a momma of a little boy - it is SUCH a fun set to make things for him and his little friends! And there are some girl stamps in this set too if you have a little Wonder Woman or Super Girl on your hands! I finally got some time to play with this fun set last night - and I love what resulted! Take a look for yourself!

Isn’t that just super?! Hahaha This color combo of Island Indigo, Old Olive, Tangerine Tango and Crushed Curry (with a splash of Chocolate Chip) is so bright and fun. And I am still SO excited about the awesome Alphabet Rotary stamp! It was a breeze to create my sentiment using the alphabet from this set and the rotary set! Love that. 

Well thats it for me today on this beautiful and sunny Sunday! I am going to head outside with my little boy now and enjoy the sunshine. Thanks so much for coming by today and Happy Stamping!
