IMG_9859 (1)This cheerful card would make anyone happy to receive and the perfect card to say hello.

Two looks one design!

Do you have a favorite layout? I have several and it always amazes me that by changing up the colors, accessories or images how different each card looks. Today’s card I created with the same layout, same stamp set but changed up the colors and theme with different sentiments. This card features Pop of petals bundle and Another Wonderful Year for the sentiment “Thank You”


To get started….

  •  Cut a standard card base in Soft Sea Foam (5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″) stamp the 3 little flower image in Soft Sea Foam ink from the upper left corner to the lower right. Cut 1 piece at 3″ X 3/4″ and stamp your sentiment in Old Olive ink.
  • With Whisper White card stock you will need 1 piece cut at 4 1/4″ X 3 1/4″, with a pencil trace a circle (I used a framelit) and stamp the branch in Old Olive moving around the circle stamping twice and then re-inking the image so you get the different shades.  You will need 1 piece cut at 4 1/4″ X 1″, punch along the long side with the Decorative Ribbon Border punch.
  • Stamp 3 flowers on Petal Pink card stock with Petal Pink ink and punch out, I curled the petals with my bone folder.

Putting it together….

  • Wrap a 15″ piece of linen thread around the whisper white and tie a bow on the right .
  • Attach the sentiment with dimensionals above the bow.
  • Add the 3 flowers with glue dots, add rhinestones to the centers.
  • Adhere the whisper white decorative border about 3 1/4″-3 1/2″ down from the top, add dimensionals and attach your wreath 🙂

On my second card I used all the same measurements but different colors to create a Holiday Card. 


  • Card base- Call Me Clover ink and card stock
  • Flowers/Ribbon – Lovely Lipstick 2018-2020 In-color designer series paper, Lovely Lipstick grosgrain ribbon, polka dot tulle ribbon.
  • Accessories red rhinestones, faceted gems, Versamark ink, white embossing powder.
  • Sentiment Mistletoe Seasons

TIP – I punched out 3 flowers for each, a total of nine. I spritzed them with water and crumpled them, once dry I layered them attaching with glue dots.

A little hello….

We all enjoy receiving cards for special occasions but getting one that just says Hello will make any day special. To create this card I combined the Pop of Petals bundle with Itty Bitty Greetings and the Stitched Labels framelets.


To start I used a whisper white card base cut at  5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″, I added texture with the Tufted embossing folder on whisper white cut at 4″ X 5 1/4″, next I wrapped a piece of the Polka Dot Tulle ribbon around and ties a bow and then tied a piece of linen thread around the bow. I attached this to the card base with dimensionals. The plaque was die cut with the large label in petal pink and the tag was die cut in whisper white with basic gray ink for the sentiment. I stamped several leaves from the Pop of Petals stamp set in old olive on soft sea foam card stock and cut them out, to add another layer I added two leaves punched in vellum with the leaf punch. To finish it off I stamped two flowers in so saffron and one in petal pink, with an aqua painter I added a little more color with the so saffron and petal pink ink refills (just a drop in each lid) To attach the flowers and leaves I used glue dots and dimensionals, the rhinestones finished it off. The next time you are creating cards make one to send to someone to just say “a little hello” and will definitely make their day!

One of my favorite techniques with the STAMPARATUS is the Hinge-Step Technique, watch this video to see just how easy it is ant then check out my sample below.

I added a little twist to the hinge by placing my stamp at an angle.

Just A Note…


Sometimes just a little note card is perfect to  give to a friend to say thank you or how much you appreciate them. When you make one you might as well make a stack, it won’t take long with the Varied Vases Bundle, the Narrow Note Cards and STAMPARATUS!

To create the back ground I lined up the scallop stamp image on the STAMPARATUS and stamped in Memento Black Ink several times moving down one hinge at a time, the repeated to fill in the space. Next I lined up the solid scallop image repeating as I did with the first image and using Granny Apple Green and Pool Party classic ink.

I die cut a Stitched Shape Framelits oval in Whisper White card stock and a scallop oval from the Layering Oval Framelits in Basic Black card stock. I stamped the outline flower image and leaves in Memento Black Ink. The flower and leaves are stamped in Granny Apple Green and Pool Party classic ink, the vase in Memento Black Ink. To finish off I popped up the vase with a dimensional, adhered the oval to the scallop, wrapped a Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon around the card and tied a bow and attached the oval to the front with dimensionals.

You can also create back grounds with designer series paper, background stamps and texture embossing folders, with the Narrow Note Cards you have 20 in a pack so you can make a variety!
