Ice Cream

My little granddaughter loves ice cream!  Can you tell?!

A shout out to my friend Leila Pals for sharing this fun and festive card created with the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set!  In retrospect, I should have posted it sooner since the DSP is now discontinued.  Imagine with me:  this card re-created with the Artistically Inked stamp set.  Can you see the ice cream swirls?  Can you taste the sorbet flavors?  Choose your favorite colors from Pale Papaya, Granny Apple Green, Polished Pink and more!  Yum!  See more like this at


Although Father’s Day is over, I just had to share this adorable picture of my son and his daughter!  This was his first Father’s Day.  As you can tell, he is loving every moment of fatherhood.

While designing this card, I noticed this stamp set has shapes that remind me of Star Wars.  See the planter in the lower right? Could it be part of Darth Vader’s helmet?  The Bee Charms resemble aliens.  (I’m also realizing I may have too much time on my hands).  This card takes you back to basics with direct to paper stamping.  I intentionally left the colors soft and kind of grunge-looking.  For a bolder card, use the Stamparatus and stamp the image repeatedly until you achieve the color intensity you want.  See more like this at

A Touch of Ink

A Touch of Ink!  This two-step stamp set will be available – FREE – with a $100 purchase during Sale-a-Bration.  This set offers a unique selection of images and sentiments.  It seems strange to be stamping hummingbirds when winter is just beginning, but the bright colors cheer me up!  If you are interested in the Celebration Labels Dies (#153570) shown above, place your order soon as they retire on January 4th.  Instructions for creating this card can be found here: .  See more like this at


New product release!

The Sale-A-Bration Second Release is underway!  Here’s a card that uses two newly available products:  The So Very Vellum DSP is colored and embossed and the heavier weight Flowering Foils DSP has a new and improved matte finish allowing you to easily add color with your favorite coloring tools.  These roses were cut by hand and colored with a variety of Stampin’ Blends.  Add a sentiment, Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon and Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and Voila!    See more like this at

TAG! You’re it!

Have you used the tag die in the Bonanza Buddies Bundle?  Have you used the Birthday Bonanza DSP?  Such fun and bright colors for a birthday card or invitation!  The Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon can easily be matched to your project colors.  Simply run the ribbon through a stamp pad with a Sponge Dauber.  And, this ribbon is so thin, you won’t incur extra postage when mailing.  The Ornate Frames Dies (a Holiday catalog favorite that is still available!) completes the card.  See more like this at
