Oh so Lovely


You're Lovely W 133575 C 133578 SAB item

I love the new Hardwood stamp!   I do hear frequently, "BJ I need masculine card ideas."   When I saw this in the catalog, I did immediately think of masculine and you'll see upcoming samples that are more masculine than this one.  I also wanted to challenge myself to see if this stamp was versatile enough to be used on a more feminine card.  Here is what I came up with.  Simple.  I used the stamp set "You're Lovely" from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  If you're local, you could make this card tonight or tomorrow night at my Class.  Call quick for more details. 

"You're Lovely" pairs perfectly with the Deco labels framelits.   The colors I used are pool party and soft suede.





Simple Vivid Vases

Vivid Vases is a wonderful – single stamp set in the Occasions catalog.  Single stamps are a perfect option for a quick card – most of them have a greeting with them – and this greeting can be used for multiple occasions.  Quick and simple.  Perfect too for a newer stamper that doesn't have a lot of stamps yet.

  • Cardstock;  Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, Watercolor Paper
  • Inks;  StazOn Black, Bermuda Bay, Strawberry Slush, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango

Season of Love


It's February – I can't say that I am sad to see January gone. I'm sure whereever you are reading this from, you've probably just had it with winter too!  In February, I start thinking of Valentines day.  Here's some inspiration for you.  I used the photopolymere stamp set Countless Sayings 1 it's a set of 17 stamps for $13.95   #135892.

Love Countless Sayings 1 Fresh Prints

Yes, only $13.95!   Why photopolymere? 

  • It's entirely transparent for perfect placement every time
  • They are durable, the photopolymere is designed to last
  • Sticky.  These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks
  • Age tested.  Won't yellow or get cloudy over time
  • Stampin' Up!'s quality is present

Back to "love".   I also used the Fresh Prints DSP pack from the Occasions catalog  #132996 $6.95  I love this!   The price point, colors, size and prints are the reasons.   Paired with the red glimmer paper heart, this card sure does pop!   Check out the backgroung – Yep it's Gorgeous Grunge stamp set again!  If you've been following my bog, you know that this is a frequently used stamp set and is so perfect for so many backgrounds!   If you don't yet have it – it is a must have!
