Fun Card Making! Mother's Day, Father's Day and a Party Animal Case!

 Hi, Stampers!

I hope this finds you enjoying your creativity!  New products will soon be here but in the meantime, I'm enjoying the 2016-17 Annual Catalog and Occasions products.  So many wonderful ideas but so little time!!!

Here is a fun fold that I learned from my friend, Linda Williamson in Greenville, SC!  She had made darling Easter Bunny swaps but I borrowed it for a Father's Day card and an opportunity use those wonderful tool stamps.  Below, you'll see it folded!

This is a really pretty online CASE  that with lacey ribbon and a pretty doily is so perfect for a Mother's Day card.  Rose Red and Blushing Bride are wonderful together!!

Here's a simple and fun card (I cannot lie.  Another CASE with some moderation!).  Glue dots will adhere both the balloon embellishment and the ribbon to make assembly nice and easy!  Perfect for the party animal in your life!!

Card Making Fun With Kind Koala and Vellum Flowers

Hello Stampers!

I hope you're having a lovely weekend!!  I am in the process of sorting and cleaning my stamp room and that will be my next task after posting my blog!

I hope you enjoy our card gallery and get some inspiration from some of our stamper! The first two cards you see are last week's projects for AGOV (Art Gallery of Viera) Stampers and TPL (Titusville Public Library) Stampers.  Such fun!  We stamped vellum with Versamark and used Whisper White embossing powder and the Flower Shop stamps to create our sparkly, transparent flowers.  (I CASED this card from one of my CentreStage swaps but, alas, there was no name included!) We then (and here's the trick) sponged the back of the Vellum with Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry ink in varying degrees of darkness to color the flowers.  We then used Clear Wink of Stella to add some sparkle!  There is a list of products below.  Kind Koala (sniff) is retired but I love that stamp and will use it occasionally!!

Below is a gallery of lovely cards that I've received the past few months.  I love each one!  Thank you, stampers, for sharing and actually using your cards.  (Yes, I know that some of us are card hoarders!!)
 A sweet thank you from Trudy!
 Jane's Easter Bunny!
Ellen's sweet little lamb!

 Look at Bea's creativity!  She has moved and sent this interactive card 
announcing her new address!  Love it!

 How thoughtful!  Mike knew that I would love and apprecite
her note card.  I know this took a lot of design time!  Thank you, Mike!
 In addition to preparing 5 projects for 13-15 stampers in her monthly 
workshops, wonderful Oksana Semenska makes a beautiful little treat
for each of us.  This one features candies that she found in Europe on her 
recent trip that included CentreStage in Amsterdam!
 Sweet shamrocks made of little hearts for this
clean and pretty St. Patrick's day card.  Love it, Ellen!

I believe that I get a card for EVERY single holiday from Jane and Ellen!
Here is Jane's St. Patrick's Day card.  This is a lovely card.  I love the background even if it is 
contraband.  LOL!!!

Paper Pumpkin Pocket Cards, Yay, DAD!, High Tide, Ice Cream and Magical Card Group From Oksana!

 Hi, Stampers!

Whew a few weeks have passed, haven't they? My schedule has been keeping me busy but I was bound and determined to post today!  We've been having such fun!!!  I love the new "guy" stamps, papers and framelits!  The DSP is amazing--kind of urban grunge.  It inspired me to order Delightful Dijon Cardstock.  It has never been a favorite of mine but it is soooooo perfect with this wonderful, masculine ensemble!

What do you do with 3 Paper Pumpkin Pocket Card Kits?  You make them in class.  Easy and so darn cute!

We added some extra stamps and embellishments!  I hope this kit will be available later.  

By joining up at you'll get a fun surprise every month and you get to order these past kits!!
Sort By: 
So sorry to overwhelm you with Paper Pumpkin but I just love it and I got carried away!! :-)

 This coming week's cards are this beautiful High Tide card, CASE'D directly from the Occasions Catalog and the cute Ice Cream birthday card, inspired by a card on the cover of the Occasions Catalog!  Which is your favorite.  Let me know in an email for a little prize.  Keep on Scroooooooollling because I'm going to share the Magic that is an Oksana workshop!!
First of all, we were all met with a darling little treat bag, holding 3 Hershey Nuggets and decorated to coordinate with the day's theme of "Lift Me Up" hot air balloon images.  We spent the day making 4 darling cards and a 3-D pocket card, all inspired by that terrific stamp set.  

My gals will be seeing my version of several of these the week after next!!  Additionally, a beautiful dessert arrangement awaited us and Oksana patiently made cups of expresso, cappucino and hot chocolate for us!  She is truly amazing and inspires me in so many ways!!  You can see more of Oksana's MAGIC at   You will love it!!

Have a wonderful next week and enjoy your creative time!!

Hello, Stampers!

I hope you are loving (in Florida!) this lovely, sunny weather.  It does not get better than this!  Even got a few rays while cleaning up the back patio.

Here are two of my creations for next week's classes (It's a 4-class week!).  Love it!

Oops!  Looks like my sentiment slipped.  I wanted to make this card a little more versatile, so instead of sticking it down, I left the backing on my dimensionals.  "Happy Birthday" is an alternate sentiment.  :-) Yes, I'm making extra good use of my classes with Oksana Semenska!  I CASE'd the umbrella girl card that we made at her class a week or so ago.  See her GOJUS work at

I just love those little envelope framelits!  They are going to be around here for a very long time.  Also, I'm soooo happy that Stampin' Up has returned the stitched framelits to us!  Yayyyyy!

I am a real doof.  Many nice messages have gone right by me.  Today, I stumbled upon a page where I can see every message that has been sent to me.  Please send me a message and I WILL get back to you!!!

Happy Stamping!!!!

Hello Stampers!

I hope this finds you well and enjoying creative time!  I had the pleasure of attending Oksana Semenska's cardmaking class last Saturday.  We had such a good time making cards using the So Beautiful stamp set, the new Occasions hostess set, Thankful Life, and the Dragonfly Dreams bundle.  So pretty!

Below you'll see my "copycat" beautiful lady cards (3 of 6) that I've made at home and the dragonfly card that we made with Oksana.  It is so pretty and who doesn't love dragonflies??I

I used the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack for most of the So Beautiful cards but if you look closely at the dress on the gray/black card, you'll see the Inside the Lines Sale-a-bration free paper.  I love black and white dresses!!  

 Here's Oksana's beautiful dragonfly card.  (You can see more of Oksana's gorgeous cards at  It easily can be turned into a sympathy, birthday, thank you or even a valentine card!  Do you notice the new Occasions Falling in Love Designer Paper?
Have a wonderful week and don't forget to take advantage of the beautiful free items in the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  You can see everything in my store HERE! 

Happy Stamping!!
