This card is available as a free download if you have an online ordering account.  You can set one up on my website at I opened the card in My Digital Studio, saved it as a JPEG and then opened it into  Windows Photo Viewer.  I printed it as 4 per page, then trimmed […]

Sail Away

Posted: Saturday, July 16th, 2011 @ 6:10 am in Projects | No Comments »

I posted a bunch of samples with the Sail Away a few weeks ago.  IMO – it is a must have.  And it’s only available until the end of August (only $9.95).  Not Quite Navy is my color of choice for this stamp.  The first one is a “Center Step Card”.  The instructions can be found at splitcoaststampers […]

This is a great new stamp set – 8 cute pictures with sentiments.  Easy Events is one of the sets in the $99 kit special for July.  Don’t miss this great opportunity – details at I used the new Lace Ribbon Border Punch to make the background and a snippet of the Pool Party ribbon.

Perfectly Penned

Isn’t this a cool font on the new Perfectly Penned greeting set?  First card uses the Delicate Doilies set, second – On the Open Sea.  Waves were made with the Tastefully Trim die for the Big Shot.

I had a pile of almost finished cards just waiting for my new sentiment stamps which came yesterday.    Check out all the new sets at my online store  First up is the Delightful Dozen set.  Second is the Petite Pairs set – it has greetings for the insides of your cards too!  Both cards […]

More Butterflies

Posted: Tuesday, July 12th, 2011 @ 9:25 am in Projects | 1 Comment »

This idea I got from my downline Connie.  Punch the butterflies from designer paper (here Flirtatious) and then layer on top of butterflies punched from  a dark color cardstock (here Melon Mambo).  I added some ribbon, pearls and a punched border as well.  Sentiment is the hostess set from the summer minicatalog. My box of new […]

  We still have lots of stamp sets left from the garage sale.  Here is a link to the list: I used two Big Shot dies on this card – the butterfly and the pennant.  The doily is from the new Flirtatious Designer paper – it comes with two sheets of laser cut doilies.  […]

Love Pennant Parade

Here’s another Pennant Parade CASE from our demo magazine.  They used the layout on the Box #2 die for the Big Shot and added a big cookie – very cute.  I just made it into a card.  The pennants are cut from the Bring on the Cake Designer paper.  The baker’s twine is perfect to […]

One sheet wonder

Posted: Friday, July 8th, 2011 @ 3:34 pm in Projects | No Comments »

The new Delicate Doilies stamp set is great for using the one sheet wonder technique.    I just stamped in 3 different colors (Celery, Saffron, Pretty in Pink)  rather close together on one sheet of Whisper White Cardstock.   I cut one inch strips for the mosaic look, and added a mat and a sentiment.  You could do […]

I hope your’e not tired of Pennant Parade and the matching punch yet.  There’s so much that can be done with this set.  How about turning the pennants updside down for Christmas trees.  There are even a tree trunk and merry stamps in the set.   This is one of the recommended sets for the $99 demonstrator kit special […]
