Everything Amazing - You Are An Amazing Friend

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a super cute card that's great for a friend for Valentine's Day.  I used the Everything Amazing Stamp Set from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog on my card today.  I think this stamp set makes a perfect Valentine for a friend because it has hearts on it but doesn't really say I love you.  But, it does have a great sentiment that tells your friend just how amazing they are.  Plus you add in the the hearts and it's just perfect.  Here's a look at my card.


What is amazing in the Everything Amazing Stamp Set?  Everything!  And so are you!  Here, have a party hat, a heart, flowers, etc.  This stamp set can be used to customize any card for just the right occasion.  You can customize the sentiment to read a few different ones by changing out the smaller words in the sentiment.  This is one reason the Stamparatus comes in very handy while working with this stamp set.  It makes it super easy to line up the perfect sentiment into the open spaces.


I started out by stamping on a piece of Whisper White cardstock (4 x 5 1/4) the large Amazing sentiment in Melon Mambo ink in the bottom right hand corner.  I then stamped the You Are An and Friend in the open spaces in Flirty Flamingo Ink.  I then stamped the two different hearts from the stamp set around the card front in Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, and Melon Mambo inks.  I then stamped a few of the hearts on some scrap paper and used my paper snips to cut them out.  I took the three hearts that I cut out and popped them up on Stampin' Dimensionals.


I hope that you have enjoyed my little Valentine's Card for a friend, using the Everything Amazing Stamp Set.  I think that my friend that gets this card in the mail soon will know just how Amazing I think they are.  What do you think?  If you need any of the supplies that I used today, you can order them in my online store by clicking on the item/items in the shopping list below.

From My Heart Case the Catalog

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you another card that I received in the CASE the Catalog swap I took part in.  CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything or Copy and Selectively Edit.  Casing is a great way to take a design in the catalog and either recreate it just as you see it or use it as the base of the design and change things up a little.  This is a super cute card and came from page 8 of the January - June Mini Catalog.  On the very first page of the From My Heart Suite.  Here's a look at the card.

This super cute card features the From My Heart Speciality Designer Series Paper.  There's four different designer series paper designs featured on this card.  This is one of those card designs that will allow you to use up your designer series paper.  But, it's okay you can order more.  The From My Heart Speciality Designer Series Paper features playful heart patterns that have red and pink foil accents on some designs.  Some images from the paper can be cut out using the Heart Punch Pack. This paper is excellent for valentines, cards, and scrapbook pages.


The sentiment comes from the Heartfelt Stamp Set which is part of the Heartfelt Bundle.  The bundle contains the Heartfelt stamp set and the Heart Punch Pack.  The heart punches in the punch pack coordinate with some of the images from the From My Heart designer series paper, as well as images from the stamp set.  You can use both punches and punch out information from either the paper or the stamp set.

The designer series paper was layered together onto the Flirty Flamingo card base.  The sentiment was added to a whisper white strip in real red ink.  Behind the sentiment strip is a nest of gold thread and another strip of the SDSP.  Behind the punched out heart is a strip of Real Red Double Stitched Ribbon.

Sizes & Dimensions: 

  • Flirty Flamingo Cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
  • From My Heart Speciality Designer Series Paper (White background with hearts) 3 3/4" x 4 1/2"
  • From My Heart SDSP (Red background with Pink Hearts) 3 1/4" x 4 1/4"
  • From My Heart SDSP (striped design) 1/4" x 3 3/4" 
  • Whisper White Cardstock:  4" x 5 1/4" (inside) & 1/2" x 3 3/4"
  • Real Red Double Stitched Ribbon: 3" 
Thanks for dropping by today, I hope that you are inspired to CASE a card in the catalog.  
Happy Stampin'

All My Love You....Make Me Happy

All My Love Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, Be Mine Stitched Framelits, Rick Adkins

Hello and welcome to my blog.  Today, I am going to share with you a card showcasing the All my Love Designer Series Paper; which is in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog or as some refer to as the Spring/Summer Catalog.  This beautiful designer series paper can be used for so much more than just Valentine's Day!  With its classic color combinations and the hearts and floral patterns you could use it for any romantic occasion or event.  Here's a look at all the patterns in this wonderfully romantic pack.   

Image by Stampin' Up! 

So you can see what all the wonderful imagery how you could create projects not just for Valentine's Day but for any love filled day of the year.   

I just love the mix of floral patterns and the hearts.  Not even to mention that some of the hearts have flowers in them.  I can see this pack being used for Valentines, Spring Weddings, Anniversaries, Birthdays, and so much more.  I know I said that before but I felt like it needed a little more attention.  Because I don't want you looking over this pack of romantically colored designer series paper and it be gone and you start saying I wished I would have gotten that pack.  If you don't get it before it's gone its your own fault.  I am just going to tell you I told you to get it before it was to late.  I spent a whole week showcasing it, telling you great and wonderful it was and told you to pick it up in my online store.  I am sorry if you missed it but I told you so.  That will be my response so just know that that's what will be said if you message me and say I wished I had gotten it.  I am just saying.  



All My Love Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!, Be Mine Stitched

This is probably one of my favorite cards using this pack of designer series paper.  You may be asking yourself why?  Well, it showcases as much of the designer series paper as I possibly could.  

Sizes & Dimensions: 

  • The card base is made from Flirty Flamingo Cardstock that was cut at 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • 1st layer of DSP is cut at 4 x 5 1/4
  • The third layer, which is made of whisper white cardstock and features the most wonderful stitched scalloped edge is 3 9/16 x 5 (after it was cut using the edgelet).  I started out with a piece that was 3 3/4 x 5.  
  • The crumb cake mat is 1 3/4 x 5 
  • and the last layer of DSP was cut at 1 9/16 x 5. 
  • The Whisper white & lovely lipstick hearts where all cut from scrap pieces of cardstock.  Use what you have up before you cut into that new piece of cardstock; right!  
Okay I don't know what's up with the 16ths today I am just going to go ahead and apologize now.  Sorry everyone!
