You can get this set with various sentiments by hosting a workshop or a book party.  It cannot be purchased but is one of the sets offered as hostess benefits.  I love all the various sentiments and they all go with “wishing you a”….  I used the bird builder punch and the big shot on this card.

I really love the colors from this big promotion.  I love the stickers and everything that is included in this bundle.  It is not just for making memories.  Even after you make a memory book from it, you have tons of supplies left so why not used them on cards?  That’s what I did here.

This is another card with the Cross my Heart set.  Hope you like it.  I used two of our in-colors with this, which are Pool Party and Calypso Coral, both of which SU is converting to our core colors.  I am so happy because I use these colors all the time.  Actually, out of the in-colors from 2012 we are keeping all of them except Lucky Limeade.  WooWhoo!

Hello Stampers, Even though I will be gone I will try to post every day so you don’t think I fell off the face of the earth.
This card I created with the Cross my Heart stamp set in the Spring Catalog.  I did use this set a lot for Valentines Day but I forgot about it.  I spotted it on the shelf and decided to create a couple of cards with it so you can get some ideas of what to do with it.

I wanted to try my hand at cutting out the Fabric for this dress with the Big Shot.  I actually had to design a blouse to go with the jumper from the pop up Bigz XL Die.  I have so much of this beautiful fabric and I really need to start using it.  I hope you were one of the lucky ones that picked up this gorgeous fabric at 50% off in March.

This stamp set is getting to be my ‘go to’ set lately.  It is soooo much fun to play with.  I am so hoping that SU carries it over to the new catty.  I would love it if you like this stamp set and this card to click on the COMMENT under this posting and let me know what you think.  Hugs, Patti

I used the embossing folder Cloudy Day on this card.  Goes perfect with this set. Everything except the ribbon and card stock is in the Spring Catalog.

This technique is called Crayon Resist and it is done by rubbing a crayon over the images, stamped on Glossy Card Stock, and then applying color to images.  After which you take a piece of paper towel or cloth and rub the images.  The color resists the areas where the crayon was.

I got the idea for this card from a video posted by SU demonstrator, Daleen Pinder.  She used the Border Score guide that comes with the new Simply Scored Border Plate, to draw the line from the butterfly.  Although she demonstrated a technique on her card, I changed it a bit using punches and vellum CS on mine.  Hope you like it.

I liked this stamp set the first time I saw it in the catalog.  It goes perfect with  embellishments from both the Big catalog and the Spring catalog.

13. March 2013 · Comments Off on New! Photopolymer Stamps · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , , ,

I made this card with our new photopolymer stamp set that SU just came out with.  It is so easy to stamp because you can see through them and you know exactly where to place the stamp.  You won’t need the stamp-a-ma-jig for these stamps!  So Cool!


12. March 2013 · Comments Off on Stamp Camp Project for Easter! · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , , ,

We will be making this as our 3D project for Stamp camp this month on the 16th.  I have changed the date because I wanted y’all to be able to take advantage of Sale-A-Bration which ends on March 22nd this year.  Hope to see you there.  Space is limited so registration is required.  Thanks to Patricia Giesbrecht, a Stampin’ Demonstrator for this idea.

This is one of the cards we created in our clubs this month.  The DSP is from the Big catalog called Birds of a Feather!


10. March 2013 · Comments Off on Pack your Crafting Bags! · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , , ,

Just a reminder that this set and gorgeous designer paper will only be available until April 3oth.  This is one of those sets that I hope SU will consider putting in the new catalog.  I have made a ton of cards with it and the DSP is to die for!


09. March 2013 · Comments Off on Great Masculine card! · Categories: Cards, Uncategorized · Tags: , , , , ,

This card was made with the canvas shown in our spring catalog on page 21.  I love stamping on canvas……however, what I probably won’t try to do again on canvas, is water color the image….talk about labor intensive…..I wasn’t going to post this, but then again I spent so much time on it that I needed to post it, just to get some satisfaction for my time. LOL
If you will note that I stamped the image with black stazon because I wanted to water color it.  But I stamped the sentiment in basic gray classic ink using a marker and was really surprised in how clear the sentiment came out.  In addition, I love these new buttons, on page 20, because you can use the thicker ribbon with them.


08. March 2013 · Comments Off on Artisan Embellishments! · Categories: Cards, Uncategorized · Tags: , , , , ,

Of course you know everything used on this card is either from the Spring mini or SAB.  The gorgeous flowers come in the Artisan Embellishment kit found on page 10 of the Spring catalog.  You can make tons of cards from this little kit just by adding the card stock.  You don’t even need a stamp if you want to use the LOVE in it. LOL

Such a buy for $9.95.

Soon we will be wearin the ‘green’ and this card shows plenty of that!  Love these new builder brads available with the Spring mini on page 12 of the Spring mini.  I can’t stop playing with them, they are so much fun!


06. March 2013 · Comments Off on Fabulous Pinwheels! · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , , ,

These little pinwheels were made with a new sizzlits die found on page 32 of the Spring catalog.  Just so stinkin cute!
