Rose Wonder Mother's Day Card

Hi Stampers!  I have a beautiful card to share with you today!  I have to say, I totally CASED this from Pinterest!  When I saw the pin of this card, I knew I had to make one!
I LOVE the bright colors!  I used the Rose Wonder die and cut the large rose and 2 of the smaller roses from black cardstock.  Then cut the large rose from Rose Red and Cucumber Crush and began to piece the colors into the black die.  This was a little time consuming, so I probably won't make this type of card to frequently, but it is stunning!  The 2 smaller roses were pieced using Daffodil Delight and Island Indigo.  After layering all the pieces together, I then add A Wink of Stella in clear to all the rose petals..this really gave it a shine!

Thanks for stopping by today, and don't forget about my newest "Class to Go"  Helping Me Grow.  The class includes the stamp set, 2 inks and a blender pen.  I included for FREE all the material's needed to make 3 projects using the stamps and inks in the kit.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to message me.

Have a WONDERFUL day!

Retiring Hostess Set -Best Thoughts

Hi Stampers!  I wanted to share a card with you that I recently made for a friends birthday.  This card uses the Hostess Stamp set  Best Thoughts!  I LOVE this image!  It is so fun to color with either Stampin UP ink, or Copic Markers!

I stamped the image with Stazon Black Ink and colored in the flower using Rose Wonder and Pear Pizzazz.  I also stamped the same flower image on the Rose Wonder cardstock using VersaMark Ink and then clear embossed it.  I love the little POP it gives the card.

I also drew a box around the image using the Black Stampin Up marker.

If you are interested in this stamp set, ACT NOW!  It's retiring the end of May and the only way you will be able to get this set is to be a hostess of a party before May 31, 2016. 

Please drop me an email at if you are interested in being a hostess and receiving this stamp set FREE!

Also don't forget about my "Class To Go" using the Helping Me Grow stamp set!  Check out the post below for more information.

A few cards to share with you

Hello my crafty friends!  I have a few cards to show you today.  I have been busy creating away with some of the new SUPER CUTE stamps I have gotten from Stampin UP in the past few weeks.

Isn't this little chick the cutest!

This card was made using two of the Sale-A-Bration FREE stamp sets Honeycomb Happiness and Perfect Pairings.  Who doesn't love free stuff!  I DO!   I did color this cutie with Copic markers, as I still am a Copic girl at heart.  I will try different techniques' but, I love my Copic's!

 This card was made using one of the Sale-A-Bration FREE stamps sets as well, Flowering Fields!
I colored this one with Copics, and used the Sale-A-Bration FREE paper for the background, Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper.

And for my final card today, I TOTALLY CASED this card from the Occasions Catalog!  I just loved it so much!  I used Birthday Blooms stamp set and the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper!  Sometimes you just have to CASE a card you LOVE!

If you are interested in any of the products, you can visit my Stampin Up page at the top of the page.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a GREAT DAY!

Birthday Blooms Card

What a fun card I made this week using the new Birthday Blooms stamp set from the Occasions catalog from Stampin Up.

I wanted to try a technique that I saw recently, I have changed it up a bit, but LOVE how it turned out! 
I embossed the beautiful rose image with gold embossing powder and used a blender pen and ink to start coloring the rose.  The ink colors used are  Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo and Celery Green. To create the background I used Pool Party ink and a sponge to apply the ink staying clear of the rose image.  If I were to do this again, I think I would create a mask for the rose, this would have made it easier to color the background.  Oh well, I love how it turned out!

If you are interested in this stamp set this is a great time to purchase from Stampin UP.  It is the Sale A Bration time and for every 50 dollars you spend you receive a FREE product!  Such a deal!

Crafting again!

Hello all my crafty friends!

I have taken a really LONG break from my blog, but I have still been crafting a bit during my absence.  I have been focusing on family the last few years, made some big changes in my life and am now finally ready to start blogging again.  I have missed my community of fellow crafters.

I am also starting a new adventure as a Stampin Up demonstrator.  I am so excited about this, I can't wait to start sharing projects and ideas with you.  Stampin up has so many fun stamps, punches, paper, dies, and much more.  I have been impressed with the quality of their products and how well everything coordinates together.

I will be back to share my first project...and if any of you are interested in checking out the Stampin Up catalog, you can go to and check it out.

I am so looking forward to this next adventure!
