Pretty Patterns


I fell in love with the special edition Host set from last month! Merry Patterns is a stunning set that you can create several different scenes with one set.  And it has great 2-step stamping! The deer in the sweater is my favorite!  I decided to use silver embossing powder to create his image.  It’s paired with the Year of Cheer specialty DSP, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, and Basic Grey.  Just gives you a cold and wintery feel!GPUZ1380

Crafting Forever Fun


Crafting Forever is such a fun set!  All of the attendees of Center Stage were presented this set in April at our dinner.  There are great pictures of scissors, brushes, a stamp, and the cute pens above!  There is even a Stampin’ Up! Copyright stamp in there so you can sell your creations while complying with the Angel Policy.

I cut the card stock just a hair taller than the pens.  The stamp has 3 pens lined up-so I just stamped them side by side.  I did make the paper longer so I could cut off the ends that weren’t straight.


I made this card for my Sweet & Simple class this month!  I love how it turned out!

I just got my box of goodies and the paste was in the box!  I can’t wait to try it out!

Stampin’ Hugs,


Simply Irresistibly Floral


I have no idea why I haven’t played with Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP paper before!!  I wanted a simple card for the girls at the Cancer Support Community Center, and this was the perfect one!  So elegant, simple, and stunning!

I used the Flirty Flamingo ink pad and the Sponge Brayers to ink up the paper.  I love that you can add as much as you want or as little as you want.  I then used a very lightly damp paper towel to take off the ink from the glossy images. Plus this helped blend the ink on the paper too.


Then a quick strip of Whisper White cardstock with your choice of sentiment stamped with Memento Black ink off to the side. Then I ran the small flower from the Flourish Thinlits with Basic Black cardstock. To finish it off, I put some bling onto the berries of the flower!

Now, I am off to find more fun ways to play with this paper!
