Hello everyone! I had planned a post for today but my computer is not cooperating. I keep getting a “Catastrophic Failure” when I try to transfer my photos from my Pixel 2 to my Windows 10 on my desk top. I am working on this and hope to have a post to you soon! If any of you would like to comment and give me some assistance, it would be greatly appreciated. Have a great day!
Hello! Hope your day is going better than mine. I am having technical difficulties today, but I believe I have everything worked out.
This is a very simple card that was inspired by a swap I received from my friend Jeanne. I just love the pastel colors and the sparkly ribbon.
The Parisian Beauty stamp set is in the Stampin’ Up! 2020 Mini-Catalog. It is part of the Parisian Blossoms Suite that includes matching Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper, Petal Pink Metallic Edged Ribbon and Champagne Rhinestones (as well as a Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder and Parisian Dies).
Measurements: Whisper White Cardstock (CS) Card base 81/2 x 51/2 inches scored at 4 1/4 inches and 5 3/8 x 2 1/2 inches; Petal Pink CS 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches; Basic Black CS 5 3/8 x 1 inches (you need two); and Designer Series Paper (DSP) 4 1/4 x 1 inches (you need two). I did not have the Parisian Blossoms DSP so I used the Bird Ballad DSP from the Annual Catalog.
Use Smoky Slate Ink to stamp the Eiffel Tower onto the 5 3/8 x 2 1/2 inch piece of Whisper White CS. Stamp the Eiffel Tower near the top to allow room for the sentiment and ribbon.
Stamp the sentiment “You’re the joy of my life” in Smoky Slate ink on the very bottom of the panel to allow room for the ribbon.
Whenever I use the Tombow Multipurpose Glue I use the Silicon Craft mat to help keep the glue off of my table. Adhere the two Basic Black 1 inch strips to the back of the Eiffel Tower panel.
Tie a bow around the bottom.
Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the Eiffel Tower panel. I cut the Dimensionals in half to make them last longer. Set the card piece aside.
Use the Bone Folder to fold the Whisper White CS card base at the 4 1/4 inch score line. Adhere the 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inch Petal Pink card piece to the front of the card base.
Adhere the 4 1/2 x 1 inch DSP panels to the Petal Pink card piece as shown.
Peel off the backs of the Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhere to the card front, lining the Eiffel Tower panel up with the Petal Pink panel.
And Viola! you have a fun card to express your love to a special someone!

Hello fellow stampers. Sometimes I need to replenish my supply of cards that can be used for a variety of occasions. I like a quick and simple card for this purpose.
These cards are fun and quick to make. I made several different colors in no time!
I loved making these tulip cards so much I made a lot! I figured I could use them for Sympathy, Get Well, Birthday and Thank you cards.
The card I am going to demonstrate today is the one in the Stampin’ Up! color Daffodil Delight.
The stamp set is the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips.
Measurements: Whisper White Card stock: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches scored at 4 1/4 inches and 5 x 3 3/4 inches: Daffodil Delight Card stock: 5 1/4 x 4 inches.
The tulip stamp looks better if the ink is not too wet. Tip: Use the Bone Folder to move the ink to the side.
Stamp the largest tulip in the center, then add the smaller tulips. Leave some space between the tulips so that you have room for the leaves.
Tip: In order to keep the stem stamp in the right configuration, I laid it on the Pierce Mat and then picked it up with the block instead of trying to place it on the block. Use this stamp to stamp a stem for the tulip on the right.
Tip: Another way to make sure the stamp is going to stamp a good image, is to put it where you are going to want the image to be, then use the block to pick it up.
Stamp the stem for the middle tulip and the bud on the left.
Now gradually add the leaves. Tip: An odd number of leaves will be more pleasing to the eye than an even number. I added two of the fatter leaf and two of the skinny leaf.
I then added the other skinny leaf to make an odd number of leaves.
Adhere the stamped tulip piece to the 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock. Adhere this card piece to the front of the Whisper White card stock card base.
And Viola! you have a note card to use in just about any situation that may arise!
This is a very basic card. You can dress it up a little if you wish.
You can add a sentiment.
You can use the Tulip Builder Punch to make the card 3-D.
Lastly you can always add some Bling! I used the Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
I hope you enjoyed this card. If you would like to make one for yourself, visit my store. The products are listed below. The stamp set is in the new 2020 Mini Catalog.

I hope you have a great day and do something creative!
I know a lot of people do not make New Years resolutions. I do. I like to take this opportunity to take a hard look at my life: what am I doing? what do I want to do? what do I want to change? These thoughts inspired this card.
This card just looks so hopeful and magical! It inspires me to try to make my dreams come true!
This card is made using the Stampin’ Up! Leave a Little Sparkle stamp set.
Measurements: Whisper White cardstock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card base scored at 4 1/4 inches, 3 3/4 x 3 inches and 4 x 1 1/2 inches; Seaside Spray cardstock 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches; Gorgeous Grape cardstock 5 1/8 x 3 7/8 inches.
Use Gorgeous Grape ink to stamp the sentiment “Make your dreams come true” onto the 4 x 1 1/2 inch piece of Whisper White cardstock. Leave space on the sides to allow for punching it out.
Still using the Gorgeous Grape ink, stamp the filigree onto the 5 1/8 x 3 7/8 inch piece of Gorgeous Grape cardstock.
I stamped around the edges near the upper right and lower left corners.
Use Memento ink to stamp the unicorn onto the 3 3/4 x 3 inch piece of Whisper White. Tip: Use the Memento ink whenever you want to color with the Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers.
I decided to color the mane and tail with the Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers in Light Highland Heather, Light Seaside Spray and Light Mint Macaron.
Starting with the Light Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Marker I colored the horn, mane and tail.
Next I colored with the Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Marker. I colored the mane and the tail.
Lastly I colored the remaining portions of the horn, mane and tail with the Light Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Marker.
I used the Light Basic Black Stampin’ Blend Alcohol marker for the hooves.
The shadows were enhanced with the Light Smokey Slate Stampin’ Blend Alcohol marker.
Now for some fun with bling! The Wink of Stella Glitter brush is wonderful!
Follow the instructions to start using your pen. There is a black ring that needs to be removed before the glitter will come out. Gently brush the unicorn body with the Wink of Stella until it sparkles. It is hard to appreciate the sparkle in the photo.
Use the Timeless Label punch to punch out the sentiment.
Tip: I lay my punch on the table and use the heel of my hand to depress it firmly and quickly.
Use the Bone Folder to fold the Whisper White cardstock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card base at the 4 1/4 inch scoreline. The Bone Folder helps to make a crisp fold.
Adhere the 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inch piece of Seaside Spray to the front of the Whisper White card base. Next adhere the stamped piece of Gorgeous Grape.
Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and the unicorn pieces. Tip: I cut my Dimensionals in half to make them last longer.
Adhere the unicorn to the card front leaving space for the sentiment.
I had put the Stampin’ Dimensionals in the middle of the back of the sentiment. With the unicorn raised up with Dimensionals, that did not look right. I moved the Dimensionals down to the bottom edge and that looked a lot nicer.
And Viola! you have a very glittery card to inspire someone!
I wish you a very Happy New Year! I hope you can find more time to craft because it is so relaxing and helps me stay sane and positive. I wish the same for you! May this coming year be your best yet!
