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


Flourish Just A Note

Hello Stampers! My card today was inspired by Julie Davison. I really liked the way she used acetate so I used a piece of retired acetate I had. I’m pleased with the results…hope you like it.

I didn’t really like the acetate as clear because that limited the ability for an inside sentiment so I put Whisper White behind it and I like the way it turned out.

Just a peek inside.  



Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Sets – Better Together, Flourishing Phrases

Ink – Fresh Fig

Paper – Wisteria Wonder, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette

Accessories – Flourish Thinlits, Candy Dots, Acetate (Modern Mosaic)


You can create so many interesting cards with the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set and Flourish Thinlits. That combo is a real winner.

Until my next post…Happy Stamping!    Donna

Daisy Day

Hello Stampers.  I’ve decided to do another card for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge (#tttc005).   This time I’m doing Summer, Die-cut, Pattern Paper.

I’m crazy about the Daisy Punch and Delightful Daisy DSP so I decided to incorporate those along with Flourish Thinlits.

This card is definitely summery…daisies!


Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Set – Butterfly Basics (for the texture on the daisy center)

Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black, Crushed Curry 

Paper – Whisper White, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Delightful Daisy DSP

Accessories – Garden Trellis Embossing Folder, Daisy Punch, Flourish Thinlits, 1/2″ Circle Punch (R), Dauber, Mini Dimensionals


Here’s another look at this cheery little card.

Did you notice that the DSP looks faded?  Don’t worry…it’s supposed to be that way. The whole pack of Delightful Daisy DSP is like that and it was meant to be that way. I think it gives more interest.

I absolutely love this bundle but I must warn you…the Daisy Punch is out of stock but never fear… Stampin’ Up! will send you yours (if you order one) as soon as they are back in stock.  *They should be back in stock by July 31st.

I’m also loving the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder… it is just so unique and works well with everything.

Note…if my photos are not the best please excuse me for a bit. My old camera just totally died on our cruise so I had to buy what they had on the ship. Don’t get me wrong…I love this new little camera but I’m still getting acquainted with the settings, etc. 

Hope you are enjoying your summer. Stay cool and Happy Stamping!    Donna

Berry Burst Pocket Card

Hello Stampers.

I have a card with our new In Color and DSP.  I’m also playing the Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  For the row I chose in the Tic Tac Toe Challenge I needed to use Pearls, Die Cuts and Butterflies. 

Here is this week’s Challenge…give it a try it’s so much fun because you have so much freedom to create.

If you’d like to play…just go to tictactoechallenge.com

You know how I like to make different folds, etc. well…here’s a cute little pocket card that is very easy to make.

I am loving this Fresh Florals DSP! The Flourish Thinlits have so much to offer.  Here I used the border and the larger flower. That cute little cluster of butterflies was from the Timeless Tags Thinlits (now retired). That one is a keeper for me.

Notice how I used the Fresh Florals DSP to match on the envelope flap. Adding a stamp or covering the flap of the envelope really makes your card special from the minute the recipient gets it.


Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Paper – Berry Burst, Whisper White, Fresh Florals DSP

Accessories – Flourish Thinlits, Timeless Tags Thinlits (R), Jewels Basic Pearls, Tear and Tape, Corner Round Punch (R)


See, I told you it was easy and you don’t need many items to make it.

There are no special directions…I just made a standard 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card,  folded down the top right corner (you could do a smaller fold if you’d like more area below to decorate), cut the DSP to match the folded portion and decorated. I did make the inside card 4″ x 5 1/4″ due to the Tear and Tape used to make the pocket. I preferred the rounded corners on the insert…looks softer. 

This is a card you MUST try. Decorate as you like and have fun.

In the meantime…Happy Stamping!   Donna

Flourishing Shadow Box Card

Hi Stampers! Wow, another week just zipped right by. Hope yours was a great week.

As promised, today I will share my second version of the Shadow Box Card.

I think my new favorite color is Sweet Sugarplum. This card is just so pretty! The same directions as in my previous blog post but I changed up the color scheme and used Flourish Thinlits.

As you can see, I added the Stylized Birthday greeting to this one. Love that stamp!!!!

Here’s a good view of the box to make the shadow.


I’m lovin’ this card!



I’ll share the swaps I received at On Stage on Monday. I received some really awesome swaps. Until Monday, have a great weekend and…Happy Stamping!

Flourish Thank You

Hello – sorry I’m a day late. Just returned from a trip out of the country and I should have prepped this post before I left. I’m happy to be home and back in my craft room. Traveling is wonderful but it is always nice to return home. 🙂

Today I have one of the three Thank You cards we are doing in my classes this month. Are you saying “What! No Christmas cards?” Well, since we’re almost 11 days away I think it’s a bit late to think about making all your Christmas cards. So, now it’s time to make thank you cards for all those fantastic gifts you will receive.


The bit of texture from the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder adds to the popped up white piece of cardstock.  I love that Penned and Painted Stamp Set. I guess I say that often. Well, I do love the sets I purchase or I wouldn’t get them. 🙂


A bit of curling on the petals gives the flower a natural look.


Simple verse inside with room to write a special note. Keep in mind – a hand written note is always a nice touch.


The sprig of Night of Navy from Flourish Framelits just finishes this card front. I sponged the circle to make the sentiment stand out. The center of the flowers are done with Basic Rhinestones colored with a yellow Sharpie.


Products Used:

Stamp Sets – Penned & Painted, Gift of Love, Floral Phrases

Ink – Night of Navy, Sweet Sugarplum, Pear Pizzaz, Memento Tuxedo Black

Paper – Whisper White, Night of Navy

Accessories – Flourish Thinlits, Elegant Dots Embossing Folder, Basic Rhinestones


I hope you enjoyed this card. It’s fun to make and really shows how much you appreciate the recipients thoughtfulness.

I’ll have two more Thank You cards to show you on Friday and next Monday. Until then…

Happy Stamping!
