Sheer Perfection Vellum, Last Day to Get Sale-a-bration!

This is my last (insert unhappy face here) Sale-a-bration card. I used the Sheer Perfection Vellum, Simply Wonderful stamp set, and the In Color Accessory Pack for this card. I know we are all sad that the Blendabilities are no longer, but look I colored the vellum with the Stampin' Write In Color Markers. If you want the color to be darker, color on the front. If you want the color to be a little muted, color on the back side of the printed vellum.


Something I've been doing lately with all this wonderful thick baker's twine Stampin' Up! is offering is untwisting the the bow ends. It adds a bit of texture.

Nature's Perfection, To a Great Friend

Sale-a-bration is winding down. Tomorrow is the last day......Here is another SAB card. I used a couple of SAB items. Nature's Perfection stamp set and the Simply Wonderful stamp set (sentiment). Did you know that you can customize your stamps by using our Stampin' Write Markers? You simply color in the stamp with different colored markers.


Its been a while since I used the Post Card Stamp. I think it goes perfectly with Nature's Perfection, don't you?

My Berry Baskets

A few weeks ago I saw on the Stampin' Up! blog where they used the Coaster Board to make these cute little Berry Baskets. I thought that's a great idea, because I want to put some African Violets inside each basket, but.......I didn't want to just see the Coaster Board. I wanted to use the Painted Booms Designer Series Paper. So what I did was cut the dsp and the coaster board down to 3 1/2" x 8 1/2". Remember you need 2 of each of the big pieces and 2 for the top of the basket. So I glued the dsp onto the coaster board BEFORE I die cut each piece. It was like a "light bulb" moment for me. This way is so much easier than trying to match everything up. I also cut the top of the baskets in coordinating cardstock. While I'm not showing you how to put the baskets together, I wanted to share with you all of the baskets I've made so far. These make great teacher gifts, Easter gifts, or just because!

 This one I made for Patty Bennett. She was coming over to stamp with me, (I treasure our time together). I knew she would love my baskets since she has such a beautiful flower garden and loves flowers. Oranges and reds are her favorite colors.
 So Tangelo Twist is what I used for her flower. I used the Bouquet Bigz Die and the Build a Bouquet stamp set to stamp each petal with the veins. Then I sponged each one. I used 5 of the smallest petals, and 5 of the next size up. It is perfect to go on the Berry Baskets. I finished off my baskets with a pick from the From the Garden stamp set and matching Framelits called Handpicked. You can get them both in a bundle and save 15%.
 Its so funny, I bought the African Violets at Lowe's. Each time I went in to get a couple more they were more beautiful than the last. Patty Plant was really big. This one has ruffled edges. Love them. I put a plastic tray inside so the basket won't be ruined.
 This one I used Rose Red Cardstock. The flowers were all put together with hot glue.

 Blackberry Bliss is what I used for this flower. With the Daffodil Delight centers they look stunning, don't you think?
 This one i used Daffodil Delight.
This one I used Rose Red again, but the dsp is different.

Edited to add: I forgot I used the Build A Bouquet stamp set for the veins on the petals and leaves. #137166, Clear Mount.

If you've made it this far, I am going to do a video, but ran out of coaster board.
I promise a video next week. Besides, I'm sure I will need more baskets by then.........
Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Big Day and Birthday Bash Cards With Patty

 We sure had a ball making these cards. Patty's cards are on the top, mine are the bottom cards.
 I wanted to use Balloon Bash along with the Big Day (Sale-a-bration stamp set). So we used the same colors and went from paint splashes, (Gorgeous Grunge) to Candy Sprinkles (Birthday Bash). Spoiler alert: My Stamp Club will be making the Birthday Bash card in April. We die cut the small stars from the Stars Framelits and colored them with Bermuda Bay ink and a sponge dauber. They stand out more now. Thanks Patty for suggesting we do this. We did cheat and use Blendabilities to color in both sentiments, but you could also use the Stampin' Write Markers.


Now you know how hard it is for me make "man" cards, I think you could give any of these cards to a man, or woman, young or not so young, don't you think?

Just For You

I saw this card on Melissa Banberry's blog. I'm sure that name is not correct. If its you, please let me know......I love how this card turned out. I gave it to a very special person, wink, wink, (hi Mary).

If you looked at my supply list you are wondering, where is the Stacked with Love dsp? Ha! The black stripped is the Stacked with Love dsp. I just sponged with ink in the white strips with Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo. You know those are my "go to" colors these days.

The sentiment is embossed with white embossing powder on the Chalkboard paper. Add the doily, Coastal Cabana Thick Baker's Twine and a few Bermuda Bay Sequins and that finishes the card.

Stamp with Cindee & Patty - Stampin' Up! Birthday Cards

 Patty and I did this video. Ok, Patty did this video....... It gives you a sneak peek of a couple more cards we did together & the cards below.



It is a Big Day when Patty Bennett comes to visit. Look at what we made. I made the cards on the top with the Polka Dot Background, Patty used the Star Background. The stars are from the Hearts and Stars Decorative Masks and the Polka Dots are from the Dots and Stripes Decorative Mask.

It was so fun to use the Chalk Board paper (make sure you see my tip below), Chalk Inks, Washi Tape, and the Tag Topper Punch along with the Masks and the Big Day Sale-a-bration stamp set (you can still get this stamp until March 31st).
I love how the Washi Tape and narrow flags really add a Pop of color to each card.

Adventure Bound Virtual Meeting Packet

Today we are having a "Virtual" online meeting with the Luv2stamp Group. So excited to hear our "guest speakers", Gloria Plunkett and Mellisa Kerman. For all of us who sign up for the meeting, Patty Bennett sends us a packet of items. This month our theme is the Adventure Bound dsp stack and the Adventure Awaits stamp set. So we purchase the stamp set and the dsp ahead of time. Then we use them with the packets Patty sent us to make 3 projects. I don't know about you, but this stamp set is hard for me to use. So this really took my "out" of my comfort zone. Check out what I did.

The stamps that come in this set are really big, and to me have odd sayings. So, what do you think? They were all really pretty simple to do. On one of the tags Patty sent I used only part of the sentiment. You can see in the photo on the left what the whole stamp looks like. I put a sticky note over the part I didn't want to use and inked up the stamp, took off the sticky note and stamped in on my tag. Then I took a piece of the 1 1/4" Burlap ribbon and cut off the sides and pulled the threads, then tied in a knot and stuck it down with a glue dot to the tag.

Here is a list of the items I used:
