Pearl Overload?!


Can you have too many pearls on a card?


I made this card for a sketch that Dawn Griffith posted for her “Glitter Queens.”  This embossing folder is so pretty that I decided to make it a subtle focal point by adding lots of pearls and framing it. This a new Stampin’ Up! embossing folder that is in the current Occasions catalog.

You may recognize the focal point of this card from my post on Wednesday. I had embossed some Whisper White card stock with this folder and they were laying on my work surface next to the cards. I picked up a card and laid it on top of the embossed card stock and loved the combination.

I love all the pearls! However, my stash was quickly dwindling! It takes a lot more than you’d think. So with this Melon Mambo card I cut one row all the way around off. Still have the same affect but saved myself about 26 pearls. (I really need to add pearls to my next Stampin’ Up! order!)


This card was done with Blackberry Bliss. It’s such a beautiful, rich, color.

This is how I finished off the inside. I used the same flower that I used to make the wreath on the front.

Glitter Queens Blog Hop Day Three

Today is the last day of the Glitter Queen Blog Hop and it has been a blast!

Okay, I was surfing YouTube the other day and came across a video that was so awesome! This lady took a single flower from the stamp set “Simply Wonderful” (page 16 in the Sale-A-Bration catalog) and made a wreath out of it. I was so excited to try it! And I knew exactly what I wanted to put in the center of this wreath. Yep, a Lollie!

I just fell in love with this wreath! So many ways to use it! Here I used the butterfly from the Butterflies Thinlits Dies which are available now in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog.  I used Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay on this card. The size of the card is 4″x 4″.

After making the 4 x 4″ cards, I decided to adapt the wreath to fit 3 x 3″ cards.  They turned out great! These ones here are Melon Mambo.

On these 3 x 3″ cards I used the “Butterfly Basics” stamp set and coordinating “Butterflies” Thinlits die. (Also in the Occasions catalog.) This lacy butterfly if so pretty.

Elegant Eggplant was used on these cards.

Christmas Wreath


This was a fun project! It only took a couple of hours and I was very please with the results. I used the Season of Style DSP in the Holiday catalog for the wreath and the Designer Rosette Bigz XL die in the annual catalog for the rosette. I also used the Frosted Finishes Embellishment (these are my very favorite!).


There is a big sale on the clearance rack today! They have some DSP that would make beautiful wreaths. I ordered some and may try my hand at another one if I have time before Christmas. You can view the clearance rack sale here.


This is my dining room wall. I’m sorry, I have not been posting much lately but I have been very busy with classes. I should be back to posting regularly now.
Thanks for stopping by.
