Giving Gifts

The Time of Giving stamp set appears simple, until you look at the awesome Giving Gifts Dies that come with the Time of Giving Bundle!  Here is an easy way to use them:  Select 2-3 that you like and line them up on a piece of 5-1/4 x 4″ cardstock.  If you use the snowflake die twice (as shown), you will have to run your cardstock through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine twice.  Notice that I rotated the snowflake die for the second pass.  Add a sentiment, perhaps from the Frosted Gingerbread stamp set and an Essential Tag Punch to finish the card.  The Pearlescent Specialty Paper adds a little pizzaz.  See more like this at



Happiest Birthday!

I just have to feature some of the amazing cards I received for my birthday!  It means so much to me that people took the time to make me a birthday card!  This card, by Leila Pals, was created with the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set with colors that remind me of sherbet.  With glitter sprinkled on the ice cream scoops, the card just sparkles!  And, the card front props up, like an easel.  Love it, Leila!  See more like this at

Count on Me for your birthday

This little penguin is part of the Count on Me set in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.  The colorful ‘bubbles’ were created with Watercolor Pencils to demonstrate how well they work on darker cardstock.  Did you know there are two watercolor pencil assortments?  Anyone with a winter birthday would love this card.  It just makes you smile!  See more like this at





Send Kindness Today

In some cultures, ring-shaped foods are symbolic of coming full circle and are considered good luck.  So, enjoy some doughnuts today for good luck!  Or, send a card created with the What’s Cookin’ stamp set from the May 2021 – April 2022 annual catalog!  Make it warm and inviting!  I have accented with the new Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and the spatula and whisk were created using the Silver Foil 12 x 12″ Specialty Pack both from the mini catalog.  See more like this at


Simply Succulents

We are at the height of heat and humidity right now in Wisconsin!  Succulents are thriving and are easy to maintain in pots.  Our Simply Succulents stamp set thrives on its own when embossed in white.  Even better when teamed with the Potted Succulents Dies.  Blender pens and our new Soft Pastels Assortment add color.  Very therapeutic!  A card for any occasion.  I even stamped the sentiment “Kind people are my kind of people” on the inside.  See more at
