I just love this image from the new Wonderful Winterland stamp set. It makes me feel good inside and I think it would make a fabulous card or tag to send to a friend with a package of hot cocoa mix or a gift card to a coffee house! Wonderful Winterland includes 6 fabulous stamps which would be good for scrapbooking kid's winter pages and for making beautiful greeting cards. Enjoy!

This is a special card made for a friend who is going through a tough time right now. I actually spotted this card and cased it from another SU demo (but I can't find it now). I just remember how it caught my eye. Simple and perfect. I used the new stamp set Lovely and Lacey and Sassy Salutations for my greeting. Colors are Rose Red, Not Quite Navy and River Rock. Enjoy!

b Stampin' Up prides itself on coming up with the best sentiments to use on cards. Again this catalog proves that! One in a Million is one of those stamp sets where the words just seem perfect for that special baby, anniversary, wedding, birthday and thank you card. Click on "shop the new catalog" on the right and check it out! Enjoy!
Memorable Moments is one of my favorite new stamp sets from the new catalog. It is so nice for making birthday and anniversary cards. It coordinates with the lablels framelits so cutting out the label is super easy every time! And you can put whatever number of birthday years or anniversary years on the card to make it even more special. Enjoy!
Happy summertime!!!! I have made quite a few summer cards recently and I am going to gradually get them all posted. I have several new stamp sets and have been thoroughly enjoying playing with them!!! Here is a recent summer birthday card made with Countryside and the sentiment is from Curly Cute. The image is watercolored in using the aqua painter brush and the watercolor pencils. Enjoy!~

I purchased this stamp set awhile ago and finally got it out to make a birthday card. The balloons are so fun and make a very uplifting, happy card. I used up some retired SU paper for my card. I also used the itty bitty punch pack to punch out little flowers to use at the base of the balloons. So simple and easy, yet cute! Enjoy!
This card I cased from Mary Fish (love her examples). I just can't get enough of the new Summer Smooches Suite. I have even finished a scrapbook page with this new paper and can't wait to do more!

This is a recent card we did for one of my stamping classes. I used Stampin' Up's distressing kit. The kit comes with four different distressing inks and is fabulous! It also comes with other assorted tools like sanding blocks. I also used the new framelit dies and vintage wallpaper embossing folder. Enjoy!

I love Flower Fancy! It has got to be one of my all time favorite stamp sets. The flowers are so soft and elegant. This was a recent sympathy card I made with this set. I used my aqua painters to softly color in the flowers with our Stampin' Up ink. I also used the new Adorning Accents Edgelits dies to make the beautiful scalloped border. Enjoy!
I love this stamp set, "Fabulous Florets" (wood mount 123025, clear mount 123027). The flowers or elements in this stamp set give way to many different looking cards and can be used for scrapbook pages too. This is a card I made recently for a customer. I used the new doily die found in the Occasions Mini. Enjoy!

One of my favorite new products in the big catty is the distressing kit. It is so easy to create a distressed appearance with the fun kit. It includes 1 flat stamp, 4 distressing ink spots (love the colors), 1 sanding block, 1 emery boarda and 3 precision files. Simply dab ink pad on stamp and rub it over your paper, then blend ink with water for an aged look. Love this look! Use the sanding block and emery board to distress or smooth edges of paper after adding it to cardstock. Use precision files to sand intricate die cuts and sand in tight areas. It sells for $19.95 and can be found in the big catalog on page 203 (#118762). I used Elementary Elegance stamp set (which can be earned for free with a $50 purchase) from Sale-A-Bration. Tiny Tags was used for the sentiment friends and was punched out with the jewelry tag punch. Other supplies used include: the baker's twine, butterfly punch, pearls, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, and Everyday Enchantment DSP. Enjoy!

Recently, every time I need to make a card I find myself grabbing the new Mixed Bunch stamp set and coordinating Blossom punch. This set is so versatile and makes for a different looking card every time I use it. So easy and fun! I did "case" this idea from another SU demo Robin Merriman. Enjoy!
