Happy Monday!!!! These golden hearts just make me happy. Look at that bling and shine!!!
I love the simple greeting on this card that makes it not so lovey dovey for Valentine’s Day! You can check out a few others I have done here and here! Valentine’s Day is a holiday I love to show how much someone means to me but I don’t always want it to be all mushy!
For this card, I started with a Whisper White card base. Then I layered a piece of Rich Razzleberry (4″ x 5-1/4″) and a piece of the Painted With Love Designer Series Paper (3-3/4″ x 5″)! Simple and easy to assemble!
For the greeting, I used the Label Me Pretty Stamp Set and coordinating Pretty Label Punch (Bundle & Save 10%). I stamped the greeting in Melon Mambo Ink onto Whisper White. Then I punched it out with the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch. Next, I layered that onto a Melon Mambo circle punched out with the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch. Finally, I added this to a piece of Calypso Coral that was stamped with the detailed label in Rich Razzleberry Ink and punched out with the Pretty Label Punch. All of these layers were put together with Snail Adhesive. Next, I flipped the greeting over and added loops of Gold Sequin Trim and secured them in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals! I added this to the lower right corner of my card!
This card was really easy to create so it would be perfect for making multiples! The Painted With Love Designer Paper has lots of different prints that you could mix and match as well. Want to see all the sheets on a full scale? Check out this video!

Happy Monday!!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!! Today’s I’m sharing this “You Are The Best” card which is perfect for Valentine’s Day without being all lovey dovey! It can also be used any time of the year!!!
This card was super simple and with the fabulous Sale-A-Bration Happy Wishes Stamp Set you can mix and match greetings! This is one of the stamp sets that you can get for FREE with a $100 order. This set has 16 stamps in it. There is a large “best” and “happy” and then lots of greetings that coordinate. I love it! Stamp the large greeting in black or gray and color it in or just stamp it in any color!
I started with a Whisper White card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. The fold is on the left hand side and I went with this style so that I could tie the ribbon around the left side. This way I used less ribbon than if I wrapped it around the 5-1/2″ part of the card. I used the Fresh Fig Sheer Ribbon and tied it around to the inside of the card and into a knot on the front! Next, I layered on a piece of the Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper measuring 4″x 3″. With this size divisible by 12″, I got 12 of these pieces out of one sheet.
For the greeting, I used the Layering Ovals Framelits. The scallop circle was cut in Melon Mambo and the the smooth oval in Whisper White. Then, I stamped the greeting from the Happy Wishes Stamp Set in Fresh Fig Ink. I added the greeting to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals! I love being able to mix and match the greeting to create lots of different styles of cards like this. Another fun change, I used Gold Metallic Ribbon and Calypso Coral Sheer Ribbon on other samples! I love having the ability to mix and match!

Today, I’m sharing with you some Valentine’s Day card ideas!!! I love Valentine’s Day because I feel like it’s a great chance to show your love, happiness, appreciation (whatever it may be) to those around you. I’m not a fan of the roses and chocolates but the CARD is a must!!!
Here is a great concept using the Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Mini Catalog! It’s not super lovey dovey but still shows love!
I started with a Melon Mambo card base. Next, I cut 2 pieces of the Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper measuring 5″ x 2″ and 3″ x 2″! I used the same sheet of 12″ x 12″ from the pack but used one side for one piece and the other side for the other piece! The larger piece is layered on Rich Razzleberry measuring 5-1/4″ x 2-1/4″. The smaller piece is layered on Gold Foil Paper measuring 3-1/4″ x 2-1/4″. I just love how this designer paper has those gold flecks in it. It is just stunning! Before adding the rectangles to the card, I stamped the greeting from the Special Celebrations Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry Ink. The greeting is a bit tight so it’s best to stamp it first. Next, I layered on the piece to the left. The smaller piece has some Calypso Coral Sheer Ribbon wrapped around it and tied into a knot. Then I added this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a little bit of texture. I finished off the front with a few Metallic Enamel Shapes.
For the inside of the card, I added a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped the second piece of the greeting on it.

One last Christmas card that I never got a chance to share. This deer in the forest card could be used for a great man card. Just change up the greeting and you are all set!
I started with a piece of Whisper White measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″ for the card base. Next, I layered on a piece of the Tranquil Tide from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper to the bottom portion. The trees and deer use the Carols of Christmas Bundle (Bundle & Save 10%). Be sure to stamp the deer before die cutting it with the Card Front Builder Framelits. It is always easier to line up the framelit rather than stamp in such a small area! The deer was stamped in Chocolate Chip and the trees were cut in Tranquil Tide.
Next, I added the double trees to the card right above the designer paper. The single tree off to the right was placed up higher so it wasn’t all covered by the greeting. Next, I layered on a small strip of Gold Glimmer Paper. This is a great chance to use up some scraps. Feel free to put a piece that is thin or rather wide. It’s all up to you! Then I tied some Whisper White Baker’s Twine around to the inside of the card. I added the little deer just above the glimmer paper. For the greeting, I die cut a circle with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and stamped the greeting in Fresh Fig Ink. I added the greeting to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals!
Just change up the greeting to Happy Birthday for a great man card. If the gold glimmer is too much, Foil Paper would work too! Let me know if you would use this as a man card in the comments below! If you would change it up, let me know the changes as well!
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Today, I wanted to show you the September 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit and some alternatives I created!
Look at those stunning fall leaves. I just fell in love with this kit because I loved how simple the leaves were individually but then all together they are stunning! Be sure to stamp the large leaf before popping the die cut out. I find it is much easier to stamp that way!
I created the 8 little mini cards as intended. They were fairly simple to create and I loved the embossed card front….even though the leaves cover most of it.
Then the rest of the kit was these cute treat boxes. I think they are adorable but I just don’t think I will need lots of treat boxes within the next few weeks so I only made 2. Then I took the rest of the boxes and cut off the ends and cut the sides to create 2 rectangle embossed pieces of kraft paper. Using those pieces I create all of these cards!!!
I ripped one end of the kraft piece and then added it like a banner to the card base. I used Old Olive and Crushed Curry cardstock for the card bases. Then I simply added the leaves the same way as the mini cards. I wrapped the Baker’s Twine around the spine and added the greeting! The greetings in this set is just fabulous! Then I ran of out of the Baker’s Twine and most of the leaves so I made the 2 in the lower right corner. I love them! I always need cards to send out, especially Thank Yous so these are perfect! If you don’t need treat boxes, I hope these inspire you!
Sneak peak…..these are the boxes for October and November. Stampin’ Up says these kits coordinate together but you don’t need them both to create the kit! That’s got me super excited and I can’t wait to see it!
By distressing the Merry Music Designer Paper, it makes it look rustic and I love the texture!!! What do you think?!?!?!
I love the glitter and shine that goes with the distressed look. This is a rather simple Christmas card which is perfect for making multiples!!!
I started with a Crumb Cake card base. Next, I took a piece of Cherry Cobbler (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped the city image from the Night in Bethlehem Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. Then I added this piece to the card front.
Now for the distressed technique! I simply took a piece of the Merry Music Designer Series Paper (2″ x 5″) and crumpled it up into a ball. Once I had it in a nice tight ball, I gently unrolled it back out. Be careful not to rip it as sometimes it gets soft and this designer paper is thinner. Next, I took a Sponge Dauber with some Early Espresso Ink and lightly brushed over the top. The ink picks up on the creases more for a nice distressed look. Once I had the look I wanted, I added adhesive on the back and placed it on the left side of the card. Be sure to just press it onto the paper all crinkled to keep that texture and distressed look!
Now for the greeting, I took a piece of Whisper White (1-1/2″ x 3-1/2″). I stamped the greeting in Cherry Cobbler Ink from the Night In Bethlehem Stamp Set. Next, I layered this onto a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper measuring 1-3/4″ x 3-3/4″. I added the greeting to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish it off, I added a few Metallic Enamel Shapes for a little bit more bling!

I have recently fallen in love with these little loops of sequins behind the greeting! It really just makes it POP and I love the little bit of bling!
I used the Painted Harvest Stamp Set from the Holiday Mini Catalog which is perfect for this card and SO many other fabulous ones! Stay tuned to more samples using that amazing sunflower too!
I started with an Old Olive card base! Next I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 3-3/4″ x 5″ and stamped the leaf from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set 3 times. I used Old Olive Ink for both stamped images. Since these images are textured and not solid, they really overlay perfectly! I love it! After stamping the leaves, I added the strips of the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper. These strips are just 3/4″ wide and angled on each end.
Now, it’s time for the greeting. I used the Layering Circles Framelits for the Whisper White and Gold Foil circle! I stamped the greeting from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set! After adhering the greeting to the Gold Foil circle, I flipped it over. I took a strip of the Mini Gold Sequin Trim and looped it around the backside. Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I secured these loops in the exact spot that I wanted it. (Yes, I am an over-user of dimensionals but that’s okay!) Next I added this to the card front. Since there are always a few sequins that fall off the end, I added them around the greeting to the card front. I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere them! I just love it!!!
The Be Merry Project Kit is all inclusive and easy to assemble! These little rosettes make perfect ornaments or gift tag toppers! The best part is no stamping and quick assembly! The rosettes are already scored and ready to go!!! Woot Woot!
The awesome thing about these is that the rosettes are already scored and ready to go with the Baker’s Twine attached. Simply peel off the adhesive and attach one side to the other. If you want to make sure it gets a strong hold, just place a clothespin or binder clip on them. I didn’t have a problem with mine though but it’s a good idea. There are gold trim ornament and gold polka dot ones too!
Next step is adding in the tulle. These come in a big stack of pre-cut circles. Be sure to only use one thin little circle for each section. I folded it in half 3 times.
Simply add a glob of Hot Glue in the valley of the rosette and then press the pointed end of the folded tulle into it. One tip that I have for this is to not go in super deep to the center of the rosette. If you go in too deep, there is only a small edge showing after the center decoration is added. Notice how the green only peaks out a little in the sample above. I recommend doing a full ornament first to work the kinks out before doing the rest in an assembly line.
The fun thing about these is that you can do all green, all red, or mix the 2 colors! Super fun!!! The top decorations can all be mix and matched as well with green or red glitter peaking through and green or red Merry greeting. Make sure to adhere the greeting on that it is right side up to the string at the top. 🙂 There are also circles to place on the back of the rosette for a To/From greeting if you wish to use this as a gift tag.

These Mini Pizza Boxes are just fabulous and adorable!!! They are in the NEW Holiday Mini Catalog and they are perfect for a gift card, cookie, or little cards /tags. Anything could go in there….and it’s calorie-free!!! 😉
These Mini Pizza Boxes are precious and decorating them is so simple! You can either just decorate the top square or wrap ribbon all around or do a belly band!
I folded the little Pizza Box on the score lines and popped it together. Be sure the shiny, plastic side is on the inside. This is to make it food safe! Next I added a piece of Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper. Then I placed one of the gold Foil Snowflakes in the center. For the greeting, I used the Layering Ovals Framelits and Stitched Shapes! I love layering these 2 styles together. They are just fabulous! The greeting was stamped in the middle from the Merry Little Labels Stamp Set! There are lots of great greetings in that set to pick from! I added the greeting to the box with Stampin’ Dimensionals!
Simple switch out the Designer Series Paper and the greeting and this would be perfect for any occasion! Check out other fabulous gift packaging idea in yesterdays post! There is a video tutorial as well!
I think that Pink & Gold go hand in hand. Every girl needs a little bling in her life whether it is gold or silver!!!
These colors are just so fabulous together! Don’t forget that the other half of the Bundle of Love Designer Paper is a beautiful blue!!!
For this card, I started with a Blushing Bride card base. Then I cut a piece of Gold Foil Paper measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. Rather than wasting all of it by covering it up, I die cut the scallop circle out of the middle before layering on the Designer Paper. I used the Layering Circles Framelits for the scallop and smooth circle! Once I had cut out the middle, I layered on the Bundle of Love Designer Series Paper. The designer paper is 3-3/4″ x 5″ and I cut it at 2″ to have a 2″ piece and a 3″ piece! It doesn’t matter which one is the gold side and which is the pink, that’s all personal preference.
After adhering those on, I added a strip of Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon around the spot where the paper comes together. This gives a nice clean look and I did adhered the ends on the back side and added it to the card base.
Now for the greeting, I stamped it from the Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set in Blushing Bride Ink. To give it a little more color and pop, I brushed the edges with a Sponge Dauber. Next, I layered it onto the scallop Gold Foil circle and added it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals!
