This week I found my inspiration in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog. You can see the card on page 15. I love how this card turned out. It’s so fun to see how different my cards turn out from the one that got me inspired.  Check out my video to see how quick it can be to get a 2 tone effect.

May Thank You Cards




I know I’m early but the cards are ready and I wanted to share! 🙂  The color for this card is Bermuda Bay.



With this card I used Melon Mambo which is my favorite color. The Designer Series paper is Pink Pirouette (another favorite).



This isn’t all of them. I have so much fun making these 3″ x 3″ cards that I get carried away! 🙂  I save them for the months when I don’t have time to make new ones.   😉

Spring Card


I’m so excited for Spring! Yay, flowers are popping up through the ground!


This will be another quick post to showcase the Pansy punch which is on sale until Monday, April 20, 2015. I love it when Stampin’ Up! gives us a punch to go with our stamp sets! The little butterfly is also a stamp with matching punch. All supplies are listed below. To order any of the items, just click on them to go directly to my online store.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Vellum Flowers



This is a quick post today. I wanted to showcase this card while the Pansy punch is still on sale with the “weekly deals.” I got my inspiration from Pinterest.  I stamped the flower onto vellum with Versa Mark ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I then colored the flowers on the backside of the vellum with markers and punched them out. I mounted the flowers with dimensionals in the center of the flowers. I colored a piece of vellum with the Coastal Cabana marker and then cut the butterfly out with the Butterfly Wings embosslit.

Thanks for stopping by! I will post another card using this stamp set and punch in just a couple of days. Don’t forget, the Pansy punch is on sale until Monday, April 20, 2015. See a list of supplies below. If you’d like to order any of the items just click on it below. Have a great day!

Sketch #4


Another fun card sketch for the Glitter Queens!



This was the first card I made using the sketch. This DSP is beautiful.



After I made the first one I decided to switch the colors around. Not sure which one I like best………. 🙂



Thanks for stopping by! I have a couple more projects to show you using this beautiful designer series paper. So, be sure to stop back by and take a look. If you’d like to place an order just click HERE.  Or click on any of the supplies that are listed below to go right to my online store!



March Thank You Notes



I have been having so much fun with this Designer Series Paper (DSP).  It’s called “Something Borrowed” and it’s in the 2015 Occasions catalog. This DSP is so elegant. I just love the look.


The colors in this paper are Sahara Sand and Whisper White. For the stamping I used Early Espresso ink. I will be posting more cards and boxes using this DSP in the next few days. So, be sure to stop back by.


This card was made using the “Painted Blooms” DSP, also in the 2015 Occasions catalog. For the stamping, I used “Blackberry Bliss” ink.


These cards are 3×3″. I love making them and I know my customers love to receive them in their order bag. I include an envelope and I don’t write or sign them so that they can be used by my customers.

Card With Matching Box

I know, you probably expected a Valentine’s card. But this card could also be made with the Sweet Heart Punch instead of the Pansy Punch!

red cardOn this card I used the new “Something Borrowed Embellishments” in the Occasions catalog. I LOVE bling! And these embellishments add just the right touch.  The designer paper is also from the Occasions catalog and is called “Stacked with Love.”  The card measures 3 1/4″ by 5 1/2″.



I like to make the inside special too. I’m thinking this would be a card for any occasion but would make a really pretty Mother’s Day card.



And how cute to have a small matching box to add a treat. These boxes are just 2″x 2″ x 2″ and are also in the Occasions catalog and you get 25 of them for just $6.95! Did you notice the box on top?! Another of my favorite items in the Occasions catalog! Stampin’ Up! has really stepped up with some awesome items for this catalog. The bow is made from a punch! Yes, a punch!  And it goes together so quick and easy too. I love it!

Lion Birthday Card

Inspired by Pinterest…

When I saw this card, I just had to make one. My nephew’s birthday was the perfect opportunity. It uses punches and fringe scissors. I only had 5 googly eyes, 3 small & 2 large. Thus the odd eyes. But I think they turned out cute anyway. What would we do without Pinterest?!

Foget Me Nots?

This card reminds me of Forget Me Not flowers.

This was inspired by Connie Stewart. I love the blue! She also did a Christmas version that I love. A simple yet pretty card that can be made in just minutes with only a few supplies.

I added the blue scallops at the side just to change it up a bit.

Two Cases One Card

lg flower

Wow! I can’t believe it’s been 2 months since I last posted! In July I was getting ready for the Stampin’ Up! convention. And then afterwards, I was getting caught up.  I didn’t take a break from my stamping or classes but just didn’t find the time to keep my blog updated. I am going to try to do better now that things are settled down.  This card that I’m posting today was inspired by 2 cards that I saw on Pinterest.  I incorporated elements from both cards into just one.


I really like the results. This card could be used for any occasion. We will be making this card in my September classes at the Dowling Library. It’s already on display there and I have gotten several compliments on it. In fact, my Monday night class filled up the first day! I used Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla card stock. Crumb cake ink pad, the small flower from the “Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, 7/8” Scallop Circle punch, Postage Stamp punch, Fun Flower punch and “Bloom for You” stamp (Also added some pearls and ribbon).
