Lovely As a Tree & Blog Candy

Lovely As a Tree

Just as winter makes way for spring, old stamps must retire to make room for new stamps.  But, which ones will retire?  Stampin' Up! will publish their 2015 Retirement list tomorrow.  Can you guess which ones will go?  Take a guess for a a chance to win the Blog Candy Below, but you will want to do it now, because today's Blog Candy offer ends at midnight tonight.


Lovely As a Tree

I made today's card for Bryan & Karli, my son and DIL, who recently purchased their first piece of property.  You may have noticed that I used the longest standing Stampin' Up! stamp set, Lovely As a Tree.  Do you think Lovely as a Tree will remain with us another year?  

I also used the Bravo and @SoSocial stamp sets to convey my congrats!


Birthday Bash

Inside I added a surprise pop of color with the flip side of the Birthday Bash Designer Paper.

Big On You & Johnny Rocket's

Big On You

While we were in Orlando for Stampin' Up! Leadership Convention we ate at the cutest little 50's dinner, Johnny Rocket's.  Maybe you have eaten there before too.  Everything was so cute.  Any Who, I vowed that I would make a card inspired by the Johnny Rocket's style.  Here it is.  What do you think?  Does it say Johnny Rocket's?

Big On You

Today's card was super simple.  I even made a matching red envelope and I was still done in record time.  The supply list is short too.  Scroll to the bottom of this post for a complete list of supplies.  Oh, just an F.Y.I, the Sweetheart punch is on the Stampin' Up! Weekly Deals.


Big On You

Speaking of Love, I promised to share a little love with a Framed with Love Paper Pumpkin Kit today.  Thanks to everyone who participated.  And now for the winner.  Drum Roll, please....


"Beautiful! I love the colors"

Congratulations, Ginger!  Please email your address to so that I can get your kit in the mail.

Hey, Valentine You Plus Me

Hey, Valentine You Plus Me

Who says that the Hey, Valentine is just a kids Valentine stamp set?  Today the little foxes from the Hey, Valentine stamp set join the You Plus Me and the A Dozen Thoughts stamp sets to make a furry Anniversary Card.


Hey, Valentine

I started with a Happy Hearts embossed background, then I cut a large Pink Pirouette heart with my Hearts Collection framelit dies.  To outline the heart in a fun way, I paper-pierced with the Occasions Paper-piercing Templates.

You Plus Me


I colored my foxes with Smoky Slate Blendabilities. Hint: The girl fox was color with the lightest Smoky Slate Blendabilities and then I blended with my Color Lifter.  I colored the insides of their ears with my new Pink Pirouette Blendabilities from the Occasions Catalog and then I colored the #1 with Melon Mambo Blendabilities.

It's a little tricky to see in the photo, but I added a vellum banner across "twitterpated" with the Bitty Banners framelit dies.

Hey, Valentine

A little strip of Stamped with Love Washi tape runs across the bottom and both the envelope and the inside of my card sport Stacked with Love Designer Paper.  Love those black & White patterns.

Teeny Tiny Wishes & Just Sayin'

Inside my Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set came to the the rescue once again.  And I said I Love you with the Just sayin' stamp set and Word Bubbles Framelits.

Andrew & Melissa

The happy couple are very special to us son, Andrew, and his lovely wife, Melissa.

Happy Anniversary
