A Little Valentine Thank You


Time for the Stampin' Up! Only Challenge. This week its Time for Valentines. I saw this color combo using the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits on Pinterest and thought its perfect for this challenge and for some thank you's.

Don't they look pretty?
This is my color combo, Crumb Cake, Blushing Bride and Rose Red. I can't remember the last time I used Rose Red.
I was struggling to use the Delicate Details Stamp until I saw it used just below the ribbon. I love it like that. Both the 3/8" Metallic Ribbon and the Delicate Details stamps you can earn for FREE with a $50 order during Sale-a-bration.
I just sponged each of the colors on with a Sponge Dauber, then added Clear Wink of Stella to the whole thing. Can you see the sparkle?
I wanted the heart to be popped up, so this is how I added my dimensionals.

This is a good way to get more mileage out of your stamps. The stamp says, thank you for welcoming our newest arrival. I just inked up the thank you with my Soft Suede marker. I thought the font was perfect with the heart and lace stamp.

To finish off my card I did some Gold Wink of Stella Splattering. 

Cutting guide:
5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Crumb Cake Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4"
4" x 4" Shimmery White cardstock for heart

Falling Petals Love Card

I love everything about this card. This is one Patty Bennett brought to make at our last card making fest.
Layering like this is hard for me. I love it and I don't know why I struggle with it so much. The Falling Petals Embossing Folder is perfect for a "love" card along with the Lace Doily and Heart from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits. Can you believe, there is NO stamping on this card, WHAT?

The Sending Love Embellishments are the perfect finishing touch for this card, oh, along with the Gold Wink of Stella splattering. I winked the love with the Clear Wink of Stella, you can actually see the sparkle.

Cutting Guide:
4 1/4" x 11" Pool Party Cardstock, scored at 5 1/2"
4" x 5 1/4" Pool Party embossed with the Falling Petals Embossing Folder
1 1/2" x 3 1/2" Sending Love Glassine Paper
1" x 3" Very Vanilla cardstock
Scraps of Soft Suede and Crumb Cake cardstock

This months Kit is called Adoring Arrows. How is this for cuteness? You can fit 2 Ghiradelli Chocolates inside one bag. My 10 year old granddaughter, Gianna receives her kit every month. She has already made all of her bags and is so excited to give them to her friends.


Here is the video from Stampin' Up! showing you how to put together your kit. Easy peasy!


Gianna was so excited to get her kit last month. Look what she did. She had her album all done before I even took mine out of the box. Gianna has a Polaroid 300, which she used to take all the photos and used the Washi Tape in the kit to adhere them to her pages. Pretty darn good for a 10 year old, wouldn't you say? I love that she loves to craft like I do.
We spent last Monday making flowers to put in her bedroom. I made her a big one and she die cut a bunch of the new Succulent Flower Framelits on page 21. She even sponged each one and stamped some dots from Gorgeous Grunge on each flower. A girl after my own heart......

Valentine Sampler Class

I know, you probably think I fell off the face of the earth.......Embellishment Shares are now done and in the mail. I'm slowly getting caught up. Whew.......The weather here in Northern California has been delaying our orders, (Lots of rain, which we need). Thank goodness we have had no issues like flooding. I kept telling myself as the dogs mucked up my floors, we have nothing to be upset about.....

I was waiting for my 12 x 12 Real Red Cardstock to finish my sampler. It came with all my other boxes but just didn't have time to put it all together. So now its done. Doesn't it look great with my Pool Party walls? If you would have told me that I would like Real Red and Pool Party together a couple of years ago, I would have said NO. But now I love them together. In fact if you look at page 14 of the Occasions Catalog, you will see how well they go together with the Sealed with Love Bundle. I didn't use any Pool Party for my sampler, its all Real Red and White.

Valentine Sampler Class
Saturday, January 28th, 10-1pm
Cost: $20 and does NOT include the frame
RSVP: 1-26-17
Email me: cindee@pacbell.net if you would like to attend.



Its always hard to take a photo with glass because of the glare. So I took a couple with out the glass.


 Here is a close up. I will have all the pieces die cut for you.

Dragonfly Dreams Bundle Thank you Cards


It's time for the Stampin' Up! Only Challenge. You can play along too: http://suochallenges.com/, Embossing with folders or heat is the challenge this week.

The Dragonfly Dreams Bundle (#144728) is a MUST have! The dies do all the work for you. Find this set on page 26 of the Occasions Catalog.

I paired up the Dragonfly Dreams bundle with the All Things Thanks stamp set, (#143097) and the Falling Petals Embossing Folder (#142761) and you have a winner. LOL! I also used the Neutrals Designer Series Paper, (#138435), Crumb Cake (#120953) card base and the Dragonfly is die cut with Blushing Bride, (#131198). I love Crumb Cake and Blushing Bride together.

I "winked" my dragonfly's with Clear Wink of Stella, (#141897), wish you could see it in the photo. I think my dragonfly needs some Rhinestones, (#119246), will have to add them. The sentiment is punched with the Triple Banner Punch, (#138292). I honestly don't know what I'd do without this punch. The banner ends are so popular right now. I stamped the sentiment with Early Espresso Ink.

Tip: Make sure you stamp your dots BEFORE you emboss your Whisper White cardstock.

Cutting Guide:

5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Crumb Cake cardstock, scored at 4 1/4"
4" x 5 1/2" Neutrals Designer Series Paper (Crumb Cake Stripped)
3 3/4" x 5 1/2" Whisper White cardstock, embossed with the Falling Petals Embossing Folder
1 1/8" x 3 3/8" Whisper White cardstock for sentiment
Scrap of Blushing Bride for your dragonfly

Make sure you check out all the entries for this challenge: http://suochallenges.com/.

On another note; I want to thank you for ALL the Birthday Wishes. It was truly amazing to wake up to my email filled up with birthday wishes on Saturday. Several of you placed orders and took advantage of my "birthday special" FREE Lace Doilies. I will be ordering them this week and they will go out with your Thank you card. Thank you all so much for supporting my Stampin' Up! Business. I truly appreciate every one of you.
