Fancy Fold Petal Palette

Hi Stampers…I told you I’d have more cards using the Petal Palette Stamp Set! I made this one as a Mother’s Day Card but it could be used for so many occasions.

Tri-Fold Card

Hi Stampers!  Today I have a very versatile card for you. Yes, mine is a Valentine card…better late than never! I should have posted this on Wednesday but life got in the way. 🙂


In class some of the participants made this lovely card into a birthday card…you can put any sentiment you want on it.


Open the first page and find this lovely flourish.


And finally the inside where you can put your sentiment. I left this particular one blank until I need it and then decide what I want inside.

This card may look difficult but really isn’t.

Here are the measurements for this card:

Powder Pink – 6 3/8″ x 5 1/2″, score at 2 1/8″

Whisper White – 8″ x  5 1/4″, score at 4″; (2) 2 1/2″ x 4″

Sahara Sand – (2) 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″

DSP – 2″ x 5 3/8″ and 1/2″ x 5 1/4″

Use the photos to lay out your pieces then stamp and adhere.

Please try to stay healthy! The flu bug has hit my daughter and her family very hard…all 5 of them are down with the flu (mom, dad, 3 children). Unfortunately one of the girls also has pneumonia! This flu is nothing to fool around with so take care of yourselves.

Happy Stamping!      Donna

Sweet Swirls

Hello Stampers. Today I’m working with the stamp set Swirly Bird. I’m soooo happy that it will be staying with us for another year since I really haven’t explored all the things I can do with that set yet. I love the coordinating thinlits, Swirly Scribbles too.

I decided to make today’s design for my Mother’s Day card for my mom (who just turned 94 on May 4th). I always make very feminine and lacy ones for her so this is a change.

I think she will like this card (she likes all my cards anyway). I really like Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry together!


I just had to use these sentiments from the retired set called Wonderful Mother. I will never part with that set.


Instead of using rhinestones or pearls I tried the White Perfect Accents. They have not been retired so I’ll have more time to play with them.

Sorry about the green background. It looked good until I posted these photos and now I’m not too crazy about it. I’m always experimenting with the photo process.

Hope you are all happy and healthy. It seems there are some cold and stomach bugs around again. Take care of yourselves and …

Happy Stamping!
