Flourishing Love

Hello Stampers! I think today’s card is quite elegant and simple. It would make a great Anniversary or Wedding card. Mine is for a Wedding. 

It’s simple but makes a statement. I used the Springtime Foils (a FREE gift from out Sale-A-Bration promotion) for my background and used our Foam Adhesive Strips to pop up the whole piece. It looks amazing in person.

This is my inside sentiment from the Special Celebrations Stamp Set. I thought the little Flourish die would carry the front over and it added to the elegance of the card.

I cut out the word love using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and popped up the word with Dimensionals. The Silver Foil really makes the word pop.


Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Set – Special Celebrations

Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black

Paper – Whisper White; Springtime Foils (SAB); Silver Foil

Accessories – Flourish Thinlits; Sunshine Wishes Thinlits; Foam Adhesive Strips


Hope you enjoyed seeing this card as much as I enjoyed making it. Sometimes simple is the best.

Happy Stamping!     Donna


Elegant Wedding Card

Happy Friday, Stampers! You made it through the week. Today I’m changing it up a bit. Instead of more Christmas ideas I’m tossing in an elegant wedding card. This actually came about because I was playing around with the Detailed Floral Framelits. I decided to see how it would look in Silver Foil paper. Well, one thing led to another and this is what I came up with.


This framelit set is just so beautiful you really don’t need to do anything to it. I used a simple Satin ribbon (now on Clearance) to close the doors.


A simple wish inside using Night of Navy ink to match the Night of Navy Cardstock and the Floral Phrases Stamp Set. This is just so beautiful there is nothing more to say. I really love both the Detailed Floral Framelits and the matching Floral Phrases Stamp Set.

Have  an enjoyable weekend and I’ll be back on Monday with a Thank You Card.  Until then…Happy Stamping!

Wedding Wishes

Here’s another card from the May class…please excuse the ink that bled. My sample got a little too close to the baby wipes during class.  😦

Wedding Wishes 1


Don’t you just love the Rose Garden Thinlits paired with the Rose Wonder Stamp Set? You can create so many cards with just those two items.

Wedding Wishes 2


The decorated envelope adds to the total look. I had to use my Blackberry Bliss paper and ink one last time before that color retired.


Here’s the inside sentiment with the Curvy Corner Trio Punch (retired) once again adding a lovely touch to the sentiment.

Wedding Wishes 3


Everyone loved this card and it can be used for so many occasions by simply changing the sentiments.


Products Used:

Stamp Set – Rose Wonder

Ink – Blackberry Bliss (retired)

Paper – Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss (retired)

Accessories – Rose Garden Thinlits, Curvy Corner Trio Punch (retired), Pearls


Next up will be Sympathy Cards. No one really likes the idea of making them but they are a necessity unfortunately.

Happy Stamping!

Wedding Wishes

It’s getting close to that time of year when we celebrate a lot of weddings so I revised the Cottage Greetings Card Kit to meet my needs. It’s a great kit as is but you can also do so much more with it.

Wedding Wishes 1

I added the decorative corners with the Curvy Corner Trio Punch and used silver embossing powder for the sentiment.

Wedding Wishes 2

Here’s the inside sentiment again Silver Embossing and popped up on Silver Foil Paper. This is a perfect sentiment. 

Wedding Wishes 3

One of the great things about this kit is it includes the Silver Foil envelope liners. Also the base card came from the kit. I love it!


Products used:

Stamp Set – Rose Wonder

Ink – Versa Mark

Paper – Cottage Greetings Card Kit, Silver Foil, Whisper White

Accessories – Silver Embossing Powder, Curvy Corner Trio Punch


Quick and easy! You should really consider this kit and others. You can follow the directions or go off and create with the kit as your starting point. My next kit project is the Tin of Cards. It has been sitting here since the Annual Catalog came out! 

Have a wonderful week and until my next post – Happy Stamping!

Wedding Card in a Hurry

My friend (and neighbor) was in need of a wedding card quickly…it was around noon today and they were leaving at 3:00. So, I went to work. Didn’t have time to think about it too much but I am pleased with the end result and so was she.

Wedding 1

The heart and tag are both retired but those were the first stamps that came to mind.  The ribbon, pearls and doily make it delicate.

Wedding 2

Simple inside sentiment. I left room so she could write a note.

Wedding 3

Made a matching envelope liner too. I love heat embossing…it makes a card come to life!

Hope the bride and groom enjoy their hand stamped card.

Happy Stamping!
