I was jumpin for joy when I saw that they included this stamp set in the new catalog. I think it will be a big hit. I know I am going to continue to use it. It makes great man, women, birthday, thankyou, you name it cards. Even though the Designer Paper is no longer available, you can purchase it as a download for My Digital Studio! This card uses some retired DSP. I used Not Quite Navy and Always Artichoke together. It is kind of a different color combination for me but it turned out very pretty.
Today’s card features a single stamp from the Summer 2011 Mini. It is called Hello Blossoms. The Happy Greetings from this same catalog is also a very fun set to have. I plan on getting a few more cards made with this cut little thing. These are only available until the end of August.
Stamps: Hello Blossoms, Happy Greetings
Markers: Daffodil Delight, Mellon Mambo, Wild Wasabi
Paper: Daffodil Delight, Mellon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White

While the ribbon I used is retired, guess what? The new big catalog that just came out is carrying this in scallop design. It is really cute and would look just as great if not better on this card. I don’t have mine yet. I used my Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight and Mellon Mambo Markers and stamped the flowers across the front of this card. Then I punch the little flowers using my punch pack and put rhinestone jewels on each one. They turned out so cute. This was a fun card to make. Give it a try. Thanks for stopping by today.
Well this is my last card that I will show you this week made with this stamp. Hope you are having a great Saturday. I love Saturday because it means having time to stamp and play. I get to spend time with the kids and organize my home.

Well, not only did I make good use of this stamp but my mother also made a handful of cards. I think I will get lots of good use from this little stamp. Now it is well loved, can you tell by this picture?
Get yours while you can. It is only available until the end of August 2011. The Nautical Expedition DSP is also a wonderful match and will make your card making even more fun with this stamp. The Nautical Expedition DSP is also available as a digital download and can be obtained through my on-line store. Get yours and get stamping.
Thanks for visiting me this week and sharing your time with me. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think of these boats.
Can you tell, I had alot of fun making these cards? One today and one more tomorrow and then, I will move onto something else. This is another card that I CASED from Wendy Weixler. I loved this one because of the DSP. It was a little tricky to cut out such small pieces but it went together quite well. I changed it slightly but for the most part it was her idea.
Stamps: Sail Away

Paper: Nautical Expedition DSP
Accessories: Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon, Cherry Cobbler/White Baker’s Twine, Stampin’ Dimensionals
I re-created this card from mylovelyinspirations.com as well. I just couldn’t help it. It was so pretty. This features the free in-color paper pack as a hostess gift. I used the Blushing Bride color. This also uses the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and some of SU jewels. Pink and Grey such a nice color combination. The Scallop Trim Border Punch and some Victoria Lace with an Antique Brad finish this off nicely. The sentiment also comes from a hostess level 1 set called “Because I Care”. You could get the paper and the stamp set free for hostessing a workshop. Call and schedule one with me today. The other stamp set is the Nature’s Walk. With the pink flowers this looks so soft and feminine.
Check back tomorrow. I have a few more things I have created using my Nature’s Walk Stamp set. This will go on record as a week with a lot to be seen here. A good week-end of stamping does allow me to have something to share.
I love this stamp set. I wish I had not waited until late March to get it but at least I did it. The Botanical Gazette paper is so much fun. This paper and stamp set works great for frilly cards but you could really make it work for masculine cards as well. Thank you’s, Spring, Summer, Birthday — whatever. Love, Love, Love it.
Today I want to feature the bird. I saw this idea at mylovelyinspirations.com For this one I use the Concord Crush DSP paper pack that you can get for free when you host a workshop and have $150.00 in sales. This is a level one hostess gift and come in all the new in-colors. The sentiment is from the Elements of Style Stamp set. Then I used the Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon and popped the bird and the sentiment up with dimensionals. The Sentiment is punched with the Modern Label punch. Punched one in Concord Crush, cut it in half and glued one half to each end of the sentiment that was punched out on Very Vanilla CS. This is a fun way to accent this little punch. Three little brads also added just the right touch to the corner. The bird is also stamped in the Concord Crush. If you are into purple, this fits the bill.
The next color combination was Rose Red and Pumpkin pie with the Sweet and Sour Specialty DSP. The Rose Red Seam Binding ribbon was used here. This also made a bright and cheery card.
I could have gone on forever and made one in every color but there are other fun things too. This last one I will show you I used the Botanical Gazette DSP and used some Sticky strip to create a scrunched ribbon effect with the Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon. I also sponged the edges of the DSP with Not Quite So Navy and layered it on Not Quite So Navy Card Stock. I used three little silver brads and that seemed to coordinate nicely.
What I love about this paper is the little birds. Just like the large stamp only smaller. What could be more fun?
Again, if you are interested in this stamp set, don’t wait, get it soon before the end of April. If you have any questions about making these cards, just ask.
Create something beautiful yourself.
When Nicole saw my little Thank you cards she was inspired to create something similar. She grabbed my new Eat Chocolate stamp set and made some really fun cards. She decided to use the retired color of Close to Cocoa but crumb cake or chocolate chip would work just as nice. She even found my retired Close to Cocoa retired DSP matching paper which made it even more fun. She stamped each of the stamps on Very Vanilla Card Stock. The cards measure 3″ by 6″ and folded in half to make them 3″ X 3″. The DSP is cut at 2 3/4″ X 2 3/4″.
She use the for you out of my Vintage Vogue stamp set and use the Very Vanilla Seam binding ribbon. If you decide to create something similar and don’t understand my directions for the folder from yesterdays entry, e-mail me and I will try to make it more clear for you.
Any way here is what her final results were:
She did not spend a lot of time fussing over each of these like I would have, hers are very simple but the result was fabulous. She sponged the edge of her DSP just for fun. She used the Label punch, the 2″ X 1 3/8 Large Oval, and cut the last one with the paper cutter.
This stamp set is only available until the end of April and then I am sure it will be gone. If you want one get a hold of me and I will help you get it or order it through my on-line store.
I have had a lot of fun this past weekend making cards. The best part about it was stamping with my Mother Karen and my daughter Nicole. Making something beautiful and fun with your hands and doing it with those you love - What could be better. I want to show you the cards my daughter created today. She is 14 and really getting good at this card making thing.
This one is using my Vintage Vogue stamp set, some of the free paper we earned for purchases during Sale-a-brations and some 1/2 pearls from the retired pretties kit. Very simple and cute. Love it.
Next she created a butterfly card using the Beautiful wings embosslit folder. This is such a fun thing to own. I just purchased it a month ago and I am finding all kinds of projects to use it on. I love it.
Last but not least she used a free set she chose for us call “So Happy Together”. She used my Boho Blossom punch and cut some DSP paper out and some out of Pretty in Pink. She also used the flower stamp and cut them out on the Daffodil Delight paper. Then she stamped the cute little partridges and added them. So much fun.
Tomorrow I will start to show you the fun things I have been creating. I purchased the Nature’s Walk Stamp set and the matching Designer Paper. I have just had so much fun with it and came up with some really fun things. Until then — Happy stamping!
