Love My Lavender!

HEMR9526 (1)

When I first saw the Sale-a-Bration catalog, I knew I had to earn the Lots of Lavender set right away!  I love the soft blossoms and that it’s photopolymer!  It makes 2 step stamping so much easier! I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class and used it for my Quarterly gathering!

I used Perfect Plum for my card base, Petal Passion DSP, and Silver Foil for the side accents.  I already have gone through one of the Silver Baker’s Twin!  So fun!

There is Wink of Stella Clear on the blossoms too!  When I first saw the Classic Label punch, it didn’t wow me.  But I use it all the time!  I love it now!

Don’t forget about the FREE Creative Class to Go this month!  Just purchase the Waterfront set, Wood Designs DSP pack, and Wink of Stella Clear! (I want you to see how addictive it is!!)

Here is a sneak peek of one of the cards!!!


Stampin’ Hugs, Laura


Graceful Rose Garden


A special friend and customer requested an in home party!  I haven’t done one in over a year!  She wanted to show her friends a fun fold-so this is what I came up with!  I fell in love with the Petal Garden Suite because of the beautiful rose stamp set, Graceful Garden, and the coordinating items!!

I first used a piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock and scored at 4 1/2″ and 2 1/8″.  Then I folded and scored them in a valley-mountain fashion.  You have to get the Petal Garden DSP pack!! Just beautiful colors and patterns!! Next, I used the Garden Trellis embossing folder and the results are just elegant!

Graceful Garden 2

I used the Aqua Painter to color in the images to give it a soft colored look.  I finished it off with a sentiment from Wood Words and the new Classic Label punch! And you know if used Wink of Stella Clear on my flower, right?

Thank you for stopping by!!

Simply Tranquil Tulips

Oh my! We can all order from the catalog now!!! Look at this beautiful hostess set that you can earn by booking a party or ordering $150 or more! Tranquil Tulips! I had to get it on the ore order. I usually wait with the hostess sets-but this one was a must have-now! 😋

I made this card for this Sunday’s New Catalog  Open House! I did stamp off the Real Red ink before stamping on my paper. I paired it with Wild Wasabi leaves and Basic Black for the pistils. The sentiment is from Eastern Palace, I just straightened the word before stamping. I wanted some texture with out adding too much-so I used the Hexagon Dynamic Embossing Folder with Real Red.

Want to earn this set?  This month you can get extra host dollars with a party of $350 or more!  I have dates available!


Basket Bunch Bunny


The Basket Bunch stamp set is so much fun!  I first created this cute Easter Basket with the chocolate bunny!  Then I thought it would be nice to let my club girls have a choice of which card to make.  So, I created the basket of daffodils!

On the bunny card: I used Versa Mark and Clear Embossing Powder to make it look like they had been stamped.  I think the bunny looks like a chocolate bunny this way! And the sentiment is way too cute!


I chose the Succulent Garden DSP because the gingham paper just screamed out Easter/Spring colors!!  I love how the basket has texture when you add the two layers together too! I used my paper piercer to fray the Whisper White Baker’s Twine.

Here is the daffodil card:


I chose not to put a handle on this one.  I adore daffodils, so this card just makes me happy!  And you know I added Wink of Stella to the petals!!


This time of year is bittersweet!  A new catalog on the horizon (and it will knock your socks off!!) But-Stampin’ Up! needs to move out the old first!
