Today's card is an Easter card, but it would be great for just about any occasion.

5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Soft Sky cs   score in the center at 4 1/4"
5 1/4 x 4" Wisteria Wonder cs

Rose Red
Wisteria Wonder
So Saffron
Soft Sky

Stamp sets
Petite Petals
Teeny Tiny Wishes
Papillon Potpourri

Stamp the flower in Wisteria Wonder on the same cs.  Mount on the Soft Sky card front.  Cut a Tea Lace Paper Dollie in half & tape or lightly glue onto the card front.

Stamp on a scrap piece of white cs some flowers & punch them out with the matching Petite Petals punch.  Mount them on the front.   Stamp a couple butterflies on a scrap of So Saffron cs.  Punch them out with the matching Elegant Butterfly & Bitty Butterfly punches.  Punch out a butterfly out of White Vellum Cardstock.
Mount it on a butterfly with a glue dot.  Add Rhinestones & mount the butterflies on the card front with a glue dot.

The greeting was stamped with black ink on white cs & punched out with the oval punch & punch out a backing from So Saffron cs.  Mount them with dimensionals.  It is hard to see in the picture, but I used the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush in the center of the flowers.

Hope you like this card!

Here is the card we will be making today.

8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Pink Pirouette cs. scored & folded in half at 4 1/4"
5 1/4 x 4" Pear Pizzazz cs
5 x 3 3/4" Whisper White cs-emboss with Decorative Dots embossing Folder 

Cut out of Pear Pizzazz cs a heart with the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits Die. (I used the Precision Base Plate & Big Shot Die Brush)
Stamp on an extra piece of Pink Pirouette cs the little flowers & cut them out.  If you want a light color on them use Pink Pirouette ink.  If you want a darker color on them use Melon Mambo ink.
Mount the heart with glue dots & use a little glue to mount the flowers.

The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set
The banner is from Bloomin' Love stamp set.  The Framelit to cut it out is from the Large Numbers Framelits Dies.  Mount it with Dimensionals.  You could add pearls to the center of the flowers for a little more "bling".

Here is another card from class.  I made mine into a wedding card.

4 1/4 x 11" Blushing Bride cs   score at 2 3/4 & 5 1/2"   Fold it in half & then fold the front back.
4 x 2 1/2"  & 4 x 5 1/4" Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper.  This is from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.
When I mounted the DSP I flipped one over so this way I used both sides of it.

The heart is the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper & cut with the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits Dies.  When I cut out the heart I used the Precision Base Plate with my Big Shot.  Then I used the Big Shot Die Brush to get all the little pieces to fall out.  Oh my goodness it worked so nice!  I just loved it!

Bloomin' Love stamp set is used for the flower boarder with Melon Mambo ink.

The words are from the Petite Pairs stamp set & punched out with the 1 1/4" Scallop Circle punch.  Sponge with Melon Mambo ink around the edge & mount with dimensionals.

I used mini glue dots to mount the heart.  Be sure to only put them on half & that it is the correct half.  I kind of rolled the glue dot to make it smaller to fit behind some leaves & of course put them behind the flowers.  I only used 3 or 4 glue dots.

I hope you like this card.  Let me know if you have any questions about it.  If you need any of the supplies just click on the link to my Stampin'Up! Website on the left.

Here is a card made with Sale-a-Bration  Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper, and the Sky is the Limit stamp set.  Both of these are only available through February 15, 2016.

I used white cs cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.   Fold it in half.
The DSP is 5 1/4 x 4" 
Notice that it is stamped in black ink & then use the Ovals Collection Framelits to cut out the airplane.
The 3rd in starting with the smallest.

Use the #4 oval to cut out the black cs. & mount the airplane on it.
Stamp your greeting on the DSP & mount it on the white cs.
I used 4 or 5 Dimensionals to mount the airplane on the card.
This was a very quick & easy card to make, and what a nice "guy card".

I have had so much fun with this designer series paper.  The colors are all so pretty!

Here is one of the latest cards I made.  At the end of this post I will have some pictures of the same type of fold, but just stamped card.

Card stock is Wild Wasabi cut at 4 1/4 x 11"
Score at 4 1/4 & 8 1/2"
The designer paper (I used some old that I had) 2 1/4 x 4"  & 4 x 4"
Attach the designer paper & then use a 2" punch--note in the picture above how to center the punch.

The white cs is 4 x 4"
Petite Petals stamp set & matching punch
Flower Shop stamp set & matching punch
The saying inside is just a stamp that I have.(not Stampin'Up!)

The Pacific Point cs is punch with a 2" circle punch
white cs is punched with a 1 3/4" circle punch

Open the card like the above picture & put a little tape on the card where the circle will go.  Be careful not to use or run your tape to far.  You just want it where the circle will go.  Carefully lay the circle down--you want to lower it just a "pinch" so that the card will open & close freely.  You can try to open & close the card before you tape it down to see where you need to lay it at.

Below is the other card I made.  

I like my first card better.  The dsp really "dresses" it up.  The second card just gives an idea of how to change it up.  It is hard to see, but I did put some sparkle on the sails of the ship.  It just doesn't show in the picture.

I wanted to share a baby card that I made.  I used the Something for Baby stamp set for this card.  If it was for a boy you could just change the pink card stock to blue!

I wanted to share a couple pictures using the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.  I colored the centers of the flowers.  I used Stazon Black ink & Melon Mambo ink.  They are marked so that you can tell the gold or clear.  I took 2 pictures.  I hope that you can see the glitter & sparkle!

Here is a card that I made for a "baby reveal".  This was made with an old stamp set that I had.  I don't have a lot of baby or children stamps, so I had to dig & find something.

Here is the inside of the card.  Sorry it is turned.  I don't know to turn it.

Here is the last picture that shows what the baby will be.   This was my sample card for the mom to be.  I had to make blue cards because it is going to be a boy!

I am posting twice today!  I tried something new.  I wasn't sure how to post videos here, and I wanted to share one with everyone.  Hopefully I will figure out how to post it & write on the same post!  Hey I am just glad I was able to get it posted.

Wink of Stella Glitter Brush is on page 24 in the Occasions Catalog.  It comes in clear & gold.  I have ordered both & can't wait to get them.  My order comes in next week!  Be sure to watch the video for some tips on how to get started using this brush.  I think I will be using this brush a lot!  Who doesn't like a little more bling!

Get together with your friends & host a qualifying party ($250.00 in sales before tax & shipping).  You will get $25.00 more in rewards!

$250.00 in party sales before tax & shipping gives you $25.00 in rewards (10%) plus your extra $25.00 in rewards!  That would be $50.00 in rewards to spend on Stampin'Up! product!

The normal cost of a starter kit is $99.00 and you get $125.00 worth of product.  Yes, that is a good deal, but during Sale-A-Bration you get an extra $30.00 in product.  That is $155.00 worth of product for only $99.00.  This is a great deal!  If you would like more information on becoming a demonstrator just e mail me at   There is also information on my Stampin!Up! website.  This is also where you would sign up through.  The link is on the left.
