I'm Stamping on Tuesday!

Ha, because today is Tuesday!

Right on!

I was looking for a little creative energy this morning and did a quick search of challenge blogs to play along with. I found 3! Wahoo, so you'll see all of those throughout the week.

First up: Try Stampin' on Tuesday!

I chose this one because I wanted to use coordinating DSP to recreate the sketch. I love the fact you can just flip over a paper and have something that coordinates on the back. Easy!

Here's what I came up with:

I used the Fresh Prints DSP stack that came out a few years ago. It's one of my favorite stacks because I just love the color combo. 

I started off by adhering the paper in the manner to reflect the sketch then went back and trimmed the remaining off. It was just easier for my brain then measuring and figuring out the cuts. I then punched out the red with the decorative label punch and layered an oval on top with the sentiment from the retired Smarty Pants stamp set. Added some scrunched ribbon, made easy with tear and tape, and rhinestones to finish it off! 

Supplies: All SU
Stamp: Smarty Pants (ret)
Paper: Fresh Prints DSP stack (ret), Na1/2turals White paper (ret), Whisper White, Real Red. 
Accessories: 1/2" white cotton ribbon,  rhinestones. 

What a great simple card to send to a friend! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a stamptastic day!! 


  1. Oh how I loved the Fresh Prints DPS and you've done an excellent job at using both sides with this card. I love the mixture of patterns, it goes well with our wonky sketch! Thanks for joining us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday this week! XO Crystal

Tranquility in Tulips

Good morning friends!

Do you ever see a stamp set and not fall in love with it until someone else posts something awesome with it?

Not me. Never.

As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, we are fortunate to be able to order select items early when a new catalog is about to be released. I LOVED a lot on the pre-order, but not enough to initially buy, ya know? That Tranquil Tulip set stood out to me, but I held off. Then I saw a video using the tulip set and a Label Me Pretty set, which I wasn't a fan of at all.

I. Fell. In. LOVE.


Fast forward to today when both packages are now here and I am in happy stamping bliss land.

Here's what I came up with:

For Mother's Day there were some beautiful purple tulips in my bouquet- which unfortunately made their way to the trash today. I memorialized them with this card. I also wish the Wood Textures DSP would be all in this one pattern, I just LOVE it. Its gorgeous and reminds me of one of our old barns growing up, which had tulips gr…

Earning Alaska First Purchase!

Twice in one day?!

I know, how lucky are you!! Lol!

This afternoon, I am excited to be taking part in the Earning Alaska 2018 blog hop again!! This is a group of demonstrators who are working together to reach their fullest potential and earn the Stampin' Up 2018 incentive trip, which is an Alaskan cruise through the southeastern islands! Exciting right! It's an area that since moving to Alaska I've never been, with the exception of Juneau for a roller derby trip a few years back.

This hop is chalked full of talented demonstrators! They inspire me daily!!

The theme of this hop is "First Occasions Catalog Purchase!" Which is exciting because have you seen the thing! It was page after page of awesome! I have an obsession with birthday stamps. A girl can never have too many!! That said, the first item on my list was the Party Animal suite! I had to have it all. The best part is that SU and Sizzix did a great job of making sure the existing balloon punch coordinated…

Pleated Easter Fun!

Good morning! 
As you know, I'm party of a monthly swap group with 9 fabulous ladies in San Antonio and this month's theme was Easter or birthday. Since I already have a TON of birthday cards (they're just SO easy to make) and a stamp set that hadn't been touched yet, I chose to do Easter!
It's more spring, than Easter I found, but......that's fine. Growing up in Wisconsin, (and not from a religious background) easter was the gateway to spring! Green grass, a crisp warming of the air, puddles and bike rides. In Alaska, its snow. That's it. Just snow. Even though it has been really mild this winter. :)
Because of all this snow, I've been in the springtime mood. I've been gravitating to a lot of bright colors and flowers! I just can't get enough of them right now!
After a little pinterest and Stampin' Connection (a service only available to Stampin' Up! Demonstrators) I stumbled upon a pleat card and the rest of my project fell right into…
