And Where Do I Find My Stampin Inspiration? DIY Valentines With Art Gallery Cards

Hi, Stampers!

I love these valentines from several friends.  I was unable to attend my class with Fun Stamper Oksana Semenska last week but she sent her beautiful original samples to me. What a sweet friend!  I am astounded.  They are so pretty!  I wish I had time to make up the valentine candy heart boxes for my stampers!!

I actually neglected to take a picture of one of the cards!! but look at these beauties.  They feature the beautiful Painted With Love, 2-sided specialty paper and the Sure Do Love You Stamps.  Visit Oksana's page at

And then there is my friend, Jane, who never misses ANY holiday and always sends me beautiful, detailed and lovely cards.  Don't you love it??
And here is my final Valentine design for the year.  I, too, used the Painted With Love specialty paper and Sure Do Love You stamps so all of our cards are very different but a little alike too!  Enjoy and have a wonderful Valentine's Week!

Happy Stampin'!!!

Hi, Everyone!

Here are a few cards that we've been creating over the last week or so and of course a wonderful basketful of Valentine treats!!

Love the Petal Palette Stamp Set!  Such pretty images!  I got my inspiration for this card from my pal, Cindy Lee Bee.  Enjoy more of her pretty creations at

Why be traditional when you can have fun with vibrant colors, great stamps and Stampin' Up Watercolor Pencils!!!??

Sweets for the sweet this coming week!  Each contains a York Mint Pattie heart shaped candy.  I only ate 2 but now I'd better shop for a few more.  :-)  Punches and Melon Mambo paper and Ink!  A few White Gel Pen Dots and a cute little bow, either handmade or In Color Bitty Bows complete the look!

Have a happy week!!

Art Gallery Cards Masculine Valentine or Birthday, Sale-a-Bration, Stamp Kit of the Month, Product Shares

Hello, Stampers!

I hope your weekend is off to a great start!  What a great group of classes I enjoyed last week!  I'll be publishing the photos of our projects a little later at
I hope you'll visit.  I've had visitors from Moscow, Washington DC, Indonesia (I think), Toronto, China & France.  It amazes me!!

Here is a little teaser for one our cards this week.  It has a masculine flavor and is very versatile.  I'm still in design mode.  I CASE'd from Mary Fish but made adjustments due to a limited supply of Designer Paper.  We'll use some fun embellishments too.  Our other card is the polar opposite.  Think birdies and pretty blossoms.  This one is similar to a card that my friend in Wydemere, Cindy Lee Bee, published.  She just makes really pretty cards and she is a doll herself! You might want to check out her blog.
