Here's the Scoop!


A scoop of vanilla? Just for you Sharon!

My card today features JustRite Stamper's clear "The Scoop Vintage Labels Four" stamp set (on sale now!) This is a fun set with a couple of different cones, as well as two different sweet treat labels and numerous sentiments...easy to color too!

I stamped the cone with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored it with my Copic Sketch Markers. I hand trimmed it, then mounted it with a couple of pieces of Thermoweb 3D Foam Strips onto a Spellbinder Classic Oval die cut. The white oval was then layered onto a scalloped oval die cut, see similar HERE.

The background paper is Graphic 45's "A Time to Flourish 6 x 6" Patterns and Solids decorator paper. You can find all of the A Time to Flourish product HERE. Love this line...I haven't broken into my favorite pad yet...hoarding...it is just too beautiful to cut! I stamped the sentiment directly onto the background using my favorite sentiment ink: Versafine Onyx Black.

A May Art's black Twill Ribbon accent finalizes the design.

Welcome Spring!


Spring is just around the corner...! Well, in the Northern Hemisphere anyway...

Our weather here has turned a bit cooler and the days shorter...winter is working it's way into our climate. I still long for Spring at home--thinking of all of our family and friends with the melting snow, mud, first sign of robins...

My design today uses JustRite's "Welcome Spring" clear stamp set...fun to color! I stamped the bunny and frame image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored it with my Copic Sketch markers. I hand trimmed it, but there are dies available for this set as you can see in the link above. A couple of Prima Say it in Crystals in "Aquamarine" adds some springtime sparkle.

The background decorator paper is from Kaisercraft's Something Blue 6.5 x 6.5" pad. A bit of burlap adds some texture and interest;
and a May Art's 1.25" Silk ribbon bow tops the tag.

Stamp some Spring into your week! Thanks for stopping by!

Silk and Butterfly


Quick and easy design today...silk ribbon takes center stage!

I began with a background decorator paper print from Graphic 45's "Time to Flourish" 6 x 6 Patterns and Solids pad.  You can find all of the Time to Flourish collection HERE. This pattern is a fun design...it says it all! No need for a sentiment here!

A May Art's 1.25" Silk Ribbon bow is made using an Original Bow Easy-- I wrapped the ribbon around the Bow Easy twice, making the loops a bit fuller with the intent to mimic the butterfly shape.

The butterfly die cut is a Spellbinder Die-D-Lite in "Flutters." The die set has two nice sized butterflies-- the one shown, and a solid embossed edged type. A couple of self stick Kaisercraft Rhinestones finishes the design.

Daffodil Spring


A springtime design using JustRite cling "Thank You Daffodil."  I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink (my favorite to use with Copic markers) then colored it with Copic Sketch Markers. I used Thermoweb 3D Foam Strips to adhere the panel to the back ground and add a bit of dimension.

The image panel is layered over a Spellbinder's M-Bossibilities embossed layer, see all of the Spellbinder embossing folders HERE. 

A moss green Seam Binding bow, created using an Original Bow Easy (Tutorial HERE) adds the final touch.

Gingham, Lace and Bloom


Here's a quick and easy design with a quick and easy post!

I began by making my base with Graphic 45 6 x 6" Patterns and Solids decorator paper in "Time to Flourish." Great pad with colorful mini prints and solids!

I layered a border of May Art's 1.5" Crochet Lace across the top portion of the design, then glued a bloom and leaf by Petaloo Botanica Collection Faux Dried Blooms in red with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.

I used Versafine Onyx Black ink to stamp a sentiment from JustRite's "Thank You Daffodil" cling set. The sentiment is die cut with a die from Spellbinder's JustRite custom die "Vintage Label and Banner Dies." The sentiment tag is supported and gives a bit of dimension using Thermoweb 3D Foam Strip pieces.

A Crystal Clear Box would be perfect to present this cheery card!

Stay warm! Spring is just around the corner!

Scrappy Cameo

I had some fun today with Spellbinder's Die D-Lites "Silhouette" dies..what a lovely set!You can use both the cut out portion of the die, or the negative space...just what I used in my design today!


I began with Prima's Stationer's Desk 6 X 6" decorator paper. Love the rich yet muted colors in this pad. I layered different prints to make the base and accented it with a border of May Art's 1/4" Crochet lace and a Petaloo Botanica Sugared Berries Cluster.

Now for the cameo: I die cut the women's silhouette on solid black cardstock. I then cut the negative space into an oval with a Spellbinder Classic Oval die. A bit of the Stationer's Desk dp is adhered to the back, along with a bit more of the same lace used as the border. A few 3D Thermoweb Foam Strip pieces, and you are all set!




All of the linked product is from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. (All sorts of sale items...Bo Bunny and background stamps!)

Old Fashioned Love Note

Face it Ladies...if you're making a Valentine for your man, he may not be a big fan of frou frou, ribbons, and lace. I came up with a simple way to show a bit of love for my hubby on Valentine's Day with an "old fashioned love note..."



My plan is to place this "note" someplace where he will come across it on Saturday...

I began with MME Lost and Found Record It Heirloom decorator paper for the background. I know that I have sung the praises of this pad this Valentine season, but pretty much every patterned sheet has been fun to use. This sheet specifically has a suitable pattern on the back as well...perfect for writing a love note.

The notebook type edging was made with a punch, but you can achieve the same effect with Spellbinders On the Edge dies, shown HERE.

I distressed the edges with a bit of Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Dye, then added the word "love" die cut with Spellbinders Font One Lower Case dies cut from a scrap of the decorator paper listed above. The Font One dies are perfect for any sentiment or thought...I love making one word sentiments using them!

I stamped the heart with Penny Black's Heart Swatches (this is a fabulous stamp set...I HIGHLY recommend it...actually all of the products used today are favorites) and Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Aged Mahogany, then die cut it with a Spellbinder Classic Heart die. It was then mounted to the background with a piece of Thermoweb 3D Foam Strip.

Simple, yet gets the message across to my loved one. Easy to mail as well if needed!

Do have a great remainder to your week and a wonderful Valentine's Day with your loved ones!
