Some of my favorite retiring Stampin’ Up! stamps

Can you believe all the Stampin' Up! product that I used on these is retiring except for cardstock and ink!  All the accessories (except the the Basic Jewels Pearls & Rinestones) and the stamps are on the retiring lists?

Love You to the Moon – I Really Do!

Don't you just love Stampin' Up!'s Love You to the Moon (#133143 for clear mount, #133140 for wood mount) stamp set?  It can be used for any occasion such as Valentine's Day, Anniversary, Miss You, Thinking of You, well you get it, almost any occasion.  Today's card could be used for the man in your life or a child (is their a connection here???). I used Crumb Cake, Night of Naavy, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White card stock. I used Stampin' Write markers to color the stamp, huff and stamp on the white card layer.

Hope you liked it.  Comments are always welcomed.


Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hope you are having a great day. It is still snowing in Maine. We may have a brief break tonight, then more snow on Saturday, and possibly another snow storm on Tuesday. Yikes!  I prefer snow to freezing rain or sleet, so in that respect the weather is not bad. I am just tired of the cold weather and am ready for spring.

Below is my Anniversary card to my DH using Stampin' Up!'s Love You to the Moon stamp set.  It could also be a Valentine's Day or Birthday card.

My Just Married Mini Album for swap at Stampin’ Up! 2013 Convention

Just a quick post showing the rest of the pages of my Mini Album for Kelley Jean Gettelfinger's mini album swap at Stampin' Up! 's 2013 Convention.  My theme for making this album was "it is all in the details" which in this case is pearls and sponging all through the album.

Label Love Card Sampler

I wanted to show the versatility of Stampin' Up!'s Label Love stamp set so I created a pre-buy card class for my customers. I paired the Label Love stamp set with the Artisan Label punch to create an all occasion card sampler. Below are the cards samples:

Label Love #4Label Love #5





Label Love #1Label Love #2







Label Love #6


Label Love #3







If you weren't able to attend the class in June, I have an option for you! I have created a document with, pictures, supply list including card stock sizes, and directions for all 6 cards made at my June class. There are 6 pages in all – one per card.

"How can I get the directions?" you ask. Easy, two ways:

1. Purchase the Label Love Bundle (page 32 of the big catalog #132723 (wood) $34.75 or #132722 (clear) $28.75) from my online store and then send me an e-mail telling me you made the purchase. I will confirm your purchase within 24 hours and e-mail the document to you. Click on the order now button near the top of the right hand side bar to place your order.


2. If you already have a demo or already have purchased the bundle then you can buy just the directions for only $2.95 using my Buy Now PayPal button below.
