New Video: Painted Petals & Irresistibly yours

Thank you for reading. Today I want to share with you three cards that I have created with the Sale - a - bration stamp set Painted Petals. This set and the designer series paper is only available through March 31st. In these two cards, I embossed Blackberry Bliss paper with fancy fan embossing folder. I used the Ovals Collection framelet to stamp a quick but pretty sentiment! In card one I used a strip of Melon Mambo to separate the DSP and add dimension.  On the second card, I used the You Plus Me washi tape.

I have uploaded a new video today featuring two of the Sale - a - bration products - Painted Petals & Irresistibly Yours. I go over basic techniques for making spring Thank you card.

Blendabilities Issues

Hello every one,

Many of you may already be aware that we have experienced a quality issue with our Blendabilities product line, and we thank you for your patience as we’ve worked through this sensitive matter.

We’ve done everything possible to work with our manufacturer; unfortunately, with no solution in sight, we’ve had to make the difficult decision to discontinue this popular product line.
We have provided you with a Q & A in the hopes that this will answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Thank you for your support as we continue to look for products that will meet our customer’s needs and provide you with the quality that you have come to expect from Stampin’ Up!

Stay tuned to my blog as I will be experimenting with how you can use the stamp sets & translucent papers that were offered for use with Blendabilities by substituting stampin' write markers & ink refills.

Top 2 favorites of the occasions catalog


As I am packing everything for the sale - a - bration party tomorrow, I am having a hard time packing the products up and fighting the urge to stay up for a few more hours and stamp. The new spring sets have such a fun feel this year!

To view the occasions catalog and place your online order, visit my store here  You can click the picture to be automatically directed.

The first item on my list is

You plus me and the matching stacked with love DSP

I love the DSP because its affordable and fits the stamp set perfectly. This year these two items are bundled together to save you money!

Butterfly Basics appeals to me for several reasons. I love that it is offered as a bundle with framelets that create the most adorable butterflies. They create present toppers as well as complementing your card. I love that the set works perfectly for Blendabilities - coloring in the flowers is so much fun. I also like that it features perfect sayings for the front of the card and the interior of your card.

When creating with your butterflies, remember to use wax paper for easier removal. I also have heard that placing four dryer sheets with the framelet will make the paper pieces easier to remove.
