Hey Stampin Friends, here it is Friday and I have many cards to make.  March has many birthdays and  other occasions that cards are needed for.  I need to get crackin’ and not be lagging behind and get in a rush when I need a card.

Here is my card for today.  Hope you like it.

The design and colors are from The Paper Players Challenge for this week.

The flower is cut from the Botanical Blooms Stamp set, now retired.  It is cut using Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I pressed the leaves into the Pear Pizzazz stamp pad to give a little dimension to the leaves.

Blushing Bride cardstock cut at 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2

Whisper White cardstock cut at 4 x 5-1/4.

I used one of the dies from the Botanical Blooms Stamp Bundle to cut the leaf design across the card.  I adhered this to the card base using liquid glue.


The inside sentiment is one I printed from my computer, I then stamped it with a stamp from the Beautiful Peacock stamp set,  free with $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration, which only last 15 more days.  I stamped butterflies from the Blooming Basket and Basic Butterfly stamp set using Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz stamp pads.   I added a little bling to the butterflies and my card was finished.

Today is my first blog hop, praying all goes well.  Well! here goes. Our theme is Spring.  Spring is such a lovely time with all the flowers, all the pollen that makes you sneeze and get allergies.  The bees buzzing around when you wish they would go away.

My card is for a giving, caring person.  This person does the little things that make you feel special.  I love having friends like that.   Leaving a diet Arnold Palmer on my porch table, then calling to say go check your table.

I decided to use the Birthday Blooms set for the umpteenth time today. I love this stamp set.  It is so simple to make cards using it.  I started with a base of Soft Sky cardstock, cut at 4-1/4 x 5-1/2. I scored it at 5-1/2.

I cut a mat 4 x 5-1/4 from a piece of the Springfoils DSP.  This DSP is free with a $50 purchase until March 31.  I colored the DSP using my Stampin Write Markers, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sky.  I adhered this to the base using liquid glue.

I cut two ovals, one using Blushing Bride cardstocks and the other using Whisper White cardstock.  The Whisper White oval is used for the art piece.

I stamped the art piece using the Birthday Blooms set.  I stamped the image in  Memento ink, letting the image dry well so the ink would not blend when I colored it with the Stampin Write Markers Soft Sky and Blushing Bride.  I popped this on the Blushing Bride pink mat using Stampin Dimensionals.  I then popped it onto Springtime Foils DSP.

I stamped YOU on a small scrap of paper, using the Amazing You Stamp Set, this too is free with a $50 purchase.  The inside sentiment is stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the One in A Million Stamp set.


Blessings, have a nice day.

Balloons–I Just Love You

I decided to combine the retired with the new and use stamps that I like from the retired ones I have.  I always like the Balloon Adventure Stamp Set, so decided I would make an encouragement card with it, while at the same time using some of the great products in the Occasions catalog for 2018.

My design is inspired by Just US Girls.


I started with a base of Night of Navy cardstock cut 4-1/4 x 11.  Scoring the piece at 5-1/2.  I cut a mat 4 x5-1/4 from a piece of the Sweet Soiree DSP. I adhered this to the Night of Navy card base with liquid glue.

I used the Balloon Adventure die to cut the art piece.  I used the two balloons.  I used liquid glue to adhere all these to the base balloons on the art piece. I also used liquid glue to adhere the art piece to the mat cut from the Sweet Soiree DSP.  In thinking back, I would probably have popped the art piece on the mat instead of using the glue.

I sentiment on the banner is from the Petal Palette Stamp Set.

I stamped my inside sentiment on a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut at 4 x 5-1/4. I stamped a balloon in Pool Party as an accent.  I ad

I adhered the sentiment piece with liquid glue to the Night of Navy card base.  It really was a simple and easy card.
