Happy Monday!!! I hope you all had a great weekend!!! Family time over here so it was amazing!!! 🙂 Today, I’m sharing this fun card with a wonderful woven look using the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder!!!
They call it Coastal Weave. What do you think it look likes? We had this discussion at class. Some said a basket or maybe chevron. Let me know in the comments what you think!
I got this card idea from the amazing, Sandy Carlson. It was so fabulous I just had to recreate it!!! I started with a Bermuda Bay card base. Next, I took another piece of Bermuda Bay (4″ x 5-1/4″) and embossed it with the Coastal Weave Embossing Folder. Then I added a piece of the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper to the lower half of the embossed piece and added some Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon along the seam. I secured the ends of the ribbon the back side with adhesive!
Then for the greeting, I used the Layering Circles Framelits for each layer. Punches also work great for the smooth circles! Next, I stamped the greeting from Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink. I added the greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals for some texture on the card but also for a smooth look over the ribbon and embossing!
Of course, I had to decorate the inside too! I used the Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set for the balloons. To get that variation in color, I simply inked it up in Bermuda Bay and stamped it 3 times without ever going back to the ink. It’s fabulous!!!
Don’t forget that the Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set is the free set of the month for orders of $75 or more. This is an exclusive offer through me! Sale-A-Bration is also still going on so you get a free Sale-A-Bration item for every $50 spent! Woot Woot! All kinds of free stuff!

Christmas is over and I’m ready for Spring…..or a Tropical Oasis would work!!! I guess since there is nothing in the plans, I’ll just stare at this paper and dream! 🙂 Check it out!!!
Yum Yum Yummy!!! This paper makes me happy! The tropical flowers are stunning and just scream warm weather. If you are just starting to follow me, you must know I love Spring and Summer. Warmer weather and sunshine is my jam. I don’t live near the beach so some of the images feel a little off to me but I can always use the other side. We are going to Hawaii in July so they can be used to scrapbook that trip or for cards then! By the way, send me any traveling tips for Hawaii. I need them all! 🙂

Merry Christmas Eve!!! I am not posting a lot this week but I do still have my designer paper reveals going on my YouTube Channel. Today, I’m sharing the Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper!!!
You all know how I love flowers so of course I’m loving this paper. The colors are stunning as well with those bright reds and purples. I’m not so sure how I feel about combining red and purple but I can always use the other side. I really love the solid colored prints on the back side of the paper as well. It makes this paper versatile for lots of occasions. While this paper may seem more feminine with the flower prints, those green stripes would make a fabulous man card!

Last week I shared some fabulous cards using the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper. Check that out here! Today, I’m sharing more gingham fun! Let me know in the comments which set your favorite is!
These cards were created using Grapefruit Grove card bases. Next, I too Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and added a piece of the gingham to the left side measuring 2″ x 4″. The other card uses a piece measuring 5-1/2″ x 2″. The inside uses the leftover pieces. For the triangles, I was left with a 2″ square which I just cut corner to corner. The greetings were stamped from the Well Said Stamp Set! I used the same greetings for both but flip flopped them from one card to the next with which one is on the outside.
For 1 of the blue cards and 1 of the yellow cards, I decided to switch it up! I just love blue and yellow together! I used 1″ x 4″ strips and stamped the greeting in between. Using the Butterfly Gala Punch, I punched out 2 Balmy Blue and 2 Daffodil Delight. I added 2 to the front and used the other 2 for the inside decoration! The baby card used the Rectangle Stitched Shapes for all the pieces. The stitched frame is super cute and then I used the inside rectangle for the inside of the card. Adorable!! This style would work for the other colors of gingham too.
For the Daffodil Delight cards, I used one set of the blue! Simple squares for a quick and easy card. The ribbon was colored with the Stampin’ Blends Markers! I recommend maybe using the light marker as it seems the dark marker was a bit too dark. That is all personal preference though! For the top card, I used the Banner Triple Punch and Layering Circles Framelits!!! The Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequins made for the perfect finishing touch!
I had so much fun creating all 10 of these cards using the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper!!! Tons of all occasion cards to have on hand. The Well Said Stamp Set was the perfect set for inside and outside greetings! I love it! Click the supplies below to make some of your own! So much more gingham fun!!!
You get teary eyed at Graduations?? I always do because it is such a milestone in these graduates lives. They have accomplished so much and there is still so much for them to learn and experience. It is exciting and scary all at the same time. I think this card is perfect for Graduation – You are Unstoppable!!
It shows the graduate that they are amazing and can do anything they set their mind to. It also shows your love and support. The inside of the card says, “Keep reaching for your dreams, I will keep cheering you on.” I love it!!!
I started with a Flirty Flamingo card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. Next, I added a piece of the All My Love Designer Series Paper measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. This paper is retiring soon but still available. Get it before it is gone! I added some Whisper White Polka Dot Ribbon along the crease/left hand side. It is just tied into a double knot. It doesn’t stand out a ton but adds a little texture. You could always go with a Lovely Lipstick Ribbon to make it really pop!
For the greeting, I used the Layering Squares Framelits for that fun scalloped edge. The scallop square is Soft Sea Foam and the smooth square is Whisper White. The greeting was stamped in Lovely Lipstick from the Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set!!! The inside of the card has the coordinating greeting stamped on Whisper White!
This card style works for a lot of different occasions. The greeting, You Are Unstoppable, works for more than just Graduation too! Change up the greeting for whatever you need! Also, you can create 6 cards like this from 1 sheet of 12″ x 12″ Designer Paper! Woot Woot! Click the supply list below so you can create this card!

Father’s Day is around the corner and this card would be perfect!!! It also makes a great birthday card too!!!
This is a fun and simple card that could be done in various color combinations! I did use one of the retiring color – Lemon Lime Twist!!
I started with a Lemon Lime Twist card base measuring 11″ x 4-1/4″. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White (3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″) and adhered it down the center. Using a piece of the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum, I sponged Blueberry Bushel Ink onto the back for some color. Be sure to allow it to dry a bit or you can use the Heat Tool to set the ink. Once it was ready, I adhered it to the left side!
For the focal point, I stamped the car and greeting onto a Whisper White rectangle measuring 3-1/4″ x 2-1/4″. These were stamped in Blueberry Bushel Ink. They are from the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set!! Next, I layered them onto a piece of Lemon Lime Twist measuring 3-1/2″ x 2-1/2″. This layer was added to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals for some texture!!!
