Valentine Puppy Treat Bag

This is just the cutest bag ever!
I used the retired Heart framelits and circle punches.
I found a card on Pinterest here and had to put this adorable face on a treat bag.

Happy stamping!

Grunge Valentine - Timeless Textures

Timeless Textures is my new favorite stamp set.

I think I like it more than Gorgeous Grunge!
Who would have thought Cherry Cobbler
and Blushing Bride would look this great together?

I was inspired by a card on Pinterest
where they used Washi tape to create the layered look.

This stamp set works so well for layering your stamping!


Happy stamping!

Valentine Treat Bag Die

The center of the front layer is cut out with the heart before assembling the bag. 
I will place a candy treat inside a cello bag or envelope to gift this to someone.

All the extras cut to decorate this bag are included in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit die.
You could do this same layout, using different papers
and the stars for a birthday treat bag!

Happy stamping!

Valentine Bloomin' Hearts Cafe Bag

Giving a gift or treat that needs a bigger bag?
Try Stampin' Up's café bags, decorate them with an easy tag.
The tag is held on the bag with the clothespin.

Here is a layered tag using the new Bloomin' Hearts die.
It is an intricate die and works well with the precision plate
and the new brush for detailed dies.

The thinlit die comes with the heart and 2 flower shapes. 
I die cut several shapes to layer over the flower area in the die cut.
Happy stamping!

Playful Pals Valentine

A fun Valentine using the Playful Pals stamp set and thinlits.

I stamped the images after die cutting the shapes. 
Otherwise one ear would be backwards. 
The strip of designer paper is fringed with a thinlit in the set.
The dsp is from a pack of 48 sheets, that are so varied, they work for any occasion.
There are enough sheets, you could split the pack with a friend!

I've made up some sample critters with the pyramid box. 
I'll get them online soon.  They are so cute!


From the catalog.  I like the piñata sample for birthdays.

It's My Party Designer Series Paper Pack
I Heart You greeting from: And Many More stamp set

Gift Card Holder - Going Global

The Envelope Punch Board is the greatest way to create a gift card holder.
A few score lines, a bit of adhesive and you have any size envelope you need.
This 3" x 4" envelope is from a 6" x 6" piece of dsp.  You can get 4
from a 12" x 12" sheet of dsp.

The stamp set I used is new and has great greetings for any occasion.

Cup o' Tea


This card was created with the Cups and Kettle Framelit Dies.
I die cut a spoon out of silver foil paper.  To make it 3D, I rolled
the end of the white gel pen in the bowl of the spoon while
it was on the piercing mat.

Go Fly A Kite - Happy Home

Doesn't this look like the best summer day?
I'd like to be flying a kite on a summer day right about now. 
This cold weather is really getting to me. 
Micky needs to be outside 4-6 times a day.  Some just to run and burn off energy.


This is another swap card.  A quick and cute card. 
Easy layout and a minimum amount of coloring with the Markers.

Bohemian Treat Bag


A fun little treat bag made with 2 of the side flaps
from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies.
I still love the Bohemian designer paper.  So bold and bright!
Sorry I ate the treat out of here before I took the picture.  lol
You thought a candy bar was safe in my house!?!


You attach the 2 die cut pieces to each other, with the side flaps.
Seal the bottom with Sticky Strip tape.
Attach the tape to one die cut along the bottom edge,
before assembling bag.  These can be used for any occasion!

This little guy is keeping me very busy.
We recently started training to help him build his confidence.
He is a rescue dog that I swear adopted me!  Of course he does not like
having his picture taken.  Hates the flash.
He'd rather have chewed on the antlers than wore them,
but it was cute for 30 seconds!

Happy stamping!

Lighthearted Leaves - Watercolor technique

A quick share today!

I embossed with Gold Embossing Powder on Watercolor paper
and then watercolored over the images, using the aqua painter and ink refills.
The center leaf is die cut with the Leaflets Framelits Dies. 
They co-ordinate!

Happy stamping!

Happy New Year!


I hope your holidays were filled with special people, fun times,
and good cheer!  The last part of 2015 was rather rocky for me. 
I believe I have reached a place of balance now.
I am looking forward to the new year.

I'm also looking forward to blogging about the new Occasion's Catalog.
