Thoughtful Blooms Thank You Swap Cards!




I've got another swap card to show you today that I participated in with a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. This one was a Sale-A-Bration Swap.  With Sale-A-Bration being in full swing, you can earn the two products I used on this card for FREE!


First is our Level 1 product:
Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set
Item #152290
Earn for FREE with a $50 order:



Next is the coordinating punch:
Small Bloom Punch
Item # 152316
Earn for FREE with a $100 order:


I love the little cluster that I stamped in the center of my card and then added the punched flower which gave so much dimension to the whole project. Do you like the border image I added above the designer paper?




Here is the card recipe:
  • Card Base: Flirty Flamingo Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4" Score and fold at 5-1/2". 
  • Layer #2: Whisper White Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: From My Heart Designer Paper 4" x 1-1/2". Glue to the bottom of the white layer. 
  • Border Image: Stamp the border image above the designer paper using Flirty Flamingo Ink. 
  • Flower: Stamp the branch image using Real Red Ink offset to the left.  Stamp the berries over the branch image using Flirty Flamingo Ink. Stamp the flower using Real Red Ink on Flirty Flamingo Cardstock and cut with the Small Bloom Punch. Glue to the center of the stamped branch using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  • Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment to the right using Real Red Ink.
  • Bling: Add a Rhinestone Jewel in the center of the flower and a few on the background.

January Maui Achievers Blog Hop!



Hello and welcome to a Maui Hawaii Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip Achievers Blog Hop. Wow, that was a mouthful wasn't it? If you follow me you know that I was an incentive trip earner but had to make the difficult decision of not being able to go with my Stampin' Up! demonstrator friends, because my hubby is undergoing cancer treatments at this time. I had to decide by the end of October and although it was a tough decision, I know that this is best for Dave. Because I earned the trip though, I can still participate in the monthly blog hops and I'm thankful for that.


My project for today is from a swap that I participated in recently using the Layered With Kindness stamp set and coordinating punches Label Me Lovely & Label Me Fancy. What cute names for punches!




You can see that I created eight identical cards for my fellow Control Freaks Demonstrators Swap. I had not shown these publicly yet because our swap just ended. I love how you can layer all of the stamped images in the background and then add label layers in the foreground.




These colors worked so well together and I ended up with a pretty card!





Card Recipe:

  • Card Base: Lovely Lipstick Cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score at 4-1/4" and fold.
  • Layer #2: Soft Sea Foam Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 5" x 3-3/4". Towards the left side, stamp the flowers and branches as shown in the photo. Glue to card front.
  • Layer #3: Birthday Bonanza Designer Paper 5" x 1/2". Glue about 1/2" from the bottom of the white layer. 
  • Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment on Lovely Lipstick Cardstock using VersaMark Ink. Sprinkle with White Embossing Powder and use the Heat Tool to melt the powder. Cut with the coordinating Label Me Lovely Punch and glue to card front using Stampin Dimensionals. Stamp the sentiment a 2nd time using Lovely Lipstick Ink on Soft Sea Foam Cardstock. Cut with the Label Me Fancy Punch. Glue over the 1st sentiment layer using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Bling: Add Champagne Rhinestone Jewels to the background.
And here's one last look at my project:



I will now direct you to the next person in the hop. You are currently visiting Debbie Henderson and if you click on the name below mine, you be directed to visit the next person:

Power Of Hope and a Video!

Good Sunday Morning! We are in the midst of a snow storm here in Maine. It seems to want to snow every weekend lately and tomorrow morning, Dave and I have to travel to the cancer center early in the a.m. for a follow-up appointment. We travel a little over 2 hours each way and hoping we don't have to cancel due to weather.

I love the title of the stamp set I am showing you today because hope is a magical word to me. I have been clinging to hope daily, whether in my daily prayers of a quick thought here and there with Dave, I always have hope.

The Power Of Bundle has some of the most beautiful images and sentiments:


And during Sale-A-Bration, you can earn this stamp set and Stone Embossing Folder bundle for free with a qualifying order of $100.00.  I hosted a Facebook Live Class on my Facebook pages a few weeks ago to feature this bundle and to case (copy and share everything), samples from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. Here are the three cards I demonstrated and you'll find the video below:











Ready to create? Follow along as I show the steps to achieving each card:






Place an order during the month of January and you'll receive all of the layers and pieces to create my January card. I mail all card kits once the month has ended:
