Just A Note…

The Floral Boutique Suite on pages 76 and 77 of the new catalog took my breath.  How gorgeous is that?  And that Designer Series Paper…seriously?  There will be many, but here’s my first post with this set…


Here’s a closer shot of the envelope and notecard…


So I made a set of six and then placed them in a coordinating box…


I’m thinking this would be a great gift for so many occasions…birthday, Christmas, showers.  And I know the DSP leads us to use the color Night of Navy or Dapper Denim, but can you see this in Flirty Famingo or Peekaboo Peach?  Oh my goodness…I’ve got to get busy.

The note card is pretty straightforward, but I’ll give you dimensions on the box too.  Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Whisper White and Dapper Denim Cardstock, plus Floral Boutique DSP
  • Ink:  Dapper Denim
  • Stamps:  Floral Phrases and Flourishing Phrases
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Solid Night of Navy Baker’s Twine


  • The notecard is Dapper Denim 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ with a Thick Whisper White layer 5-1/4″ x 4″ stamped with Dapper Denim ink at top and bottom and attached with multipurpose glue.  Make six.
  • The envelope is stamped on the left side in Dapper Denim.  Make six.
  • The box is made from Thick Whisper White Cardstock and cut 6-1/2″ x 10″.  On 6-1/2″ side score at 1″ and 5-1/2″.  On the 10″ side score at 6″ and 7″.  Cut tabs to first score line.  Burnish all score lines.  Use tear tape to assemble.  The inside of your box should measure 4-1/2″ x 6″ with a 3″ cover flap.
  • Cut (2) 7/8″ x 5-7/8″ DSP strips for sides.  Cut (2) 7/8″ x 4-3/8″ DSP strips for top and bottom edges.  Attach with multipurpose glue.  Cut a piece of DSP 4-3/8″ x 2-7/8″ for the front.  Stamp Floral in Dapper Denim on scrap Whisper White and “fussy cut”.  Glue to front flap with dimensionals.
  • Add several rounds of Baker’s Twine and tie in front.
  • Your box is done.  Place in a cello bag with some “grass” in the bottom and tie the top with ribbon.  Add a “for you” tag and decide who the lucky recipient will be!

So are you enjoying your weekend?  We have hit 100 degrees here today.  I do not enjoy this weather.  This week has been getting up at 6 a.m. to get my walk in before the sun is up.  Ugh!  I have to bring Zoe home a third of the way because she has little short legs and it must be extra hot next to the pavement for her.

We REALLY need rain here too.  Too much in one place and not nearly enough in another…so it goes!  End of whining…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


Be a free spirit…

Get inky…Be HaPpY!


Fairy Dust Magic…

Lyla, one of “the littles”, is nine…but like most little girls she still loves fairies.  Who am I kidding?  I still love them too!

So when the stamp set Fairy Celebration was introduced I knew where one of those sets would be headed.  Next week “the littles” will be here for a visit.  In the summer we always wait until almost dusk then sneak out with our jars to catch fireflies or as we say here in the South…lightening bugs.

Pairing the Jar of Love and coordinating thinlets set with the Fairies set just seemed natural to me…


Lyla will love this card.  I think I’ll mail it to her this week and tell her we will look for fairies this year rather than lightening bugs!  It has been splattered with Wind of Stella and her wings were painted too.  Here’s a close up…


The jar was made with window sheet and the fairy was colored with a small round brush and reinker…


To get this effect I stamped the fairy with Daffodil Delight ink on Thick Whisper White then painted with reinker.  When dry, I outlined everything with a black micron pen.  The jar outline was stamped over the painting.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digit for you just in case you have “a little” that likes fairies as much as we do…


  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Smoky Slate Cardstock
  • Ink:  Soft Sky, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizazz, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Perfect Plum
  • Stamps:  Fairy Celebration, Jar of Love and Watercolor Wash (background)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Window Sheet, Linen Thread, Everyday Jar Framelits, Clear Wink of Stella, Adhesive Strips


  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″
  • The top Thick Whisper White layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Stamp Watercolor Wash background with Soft Sky that has been spritzed with water before stamping.  Let dry.  Stamp sentiments in Basic Black at top and bottom.  Add to card front with Adhesive Strips.
  • Stamp jar lid with Basic Black on a scrap of Smoky Slate Cardstock and “fussy cut”.
  • Stamp fairy on scrap of Thick Whisper White in Daffodil Delight.  Color with reinker, water and a small paint brush.  When dry, outline with small gauge black micron pen.  Stamp jar stamp over fairy painting in Smoky Slate.  Cut out with Everyday Jars Framelit.  Cut a piece of Window Sheet with same Framelit and glue with multipurpose glue to stamped piece.  Add jar lid with dimensionals.  Tie Linen Thread around lid.  Add jar to card front at an angle with Adhesive Strips.
  • Inside the background stamp Watercolor Wash was used the same way as the card front.  Happy Birthday stamped in Basic Black.  Add more fairy dust from Wink of Stella.

I really enjoyed making this card…what is it about fairies anyway?

Well…today is Friday!  Hope your weekend is getting off to a great start.  Enjoy!

Got that right!

Foxy Hello…

Earlier this week when posting  a card with a skunk, I mentioned there would be many more little animals in my future.

Elegant Sympathy…

Sometimes while working on an idea for a card I get so excited to see it finished…ever feel that way?

Today’s post is one of those cards…in my head it was perfect, but sometimes that’s hard to bring to life.  Not this time…


I’m in love with the framelit set that goes with the Best Birds stamp set.  This looks like a “Jenny Wren” to me and seemed to be just the right touch to add to the Washi tape and sentiment.  And the verse on the inside that coordinates with this sympathy sentiment from Flourishing Phrases is so heartwarming and sweet…couldn’t have said it better!

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for this card…


  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Dapper Denim and Flirty Flamingo Cardstock
  • Ink:  Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Best Birds and Flourishing Phrases
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Floral Boutique Designer Washi Tape, Birds & Blooms Thinlets Dies


  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″
  • The Dapper Denim and top Whisper White layers are 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Cut bird from top Whisper White layer.  Add a small piece of Flirty Flamingo over the tummy of the back of the bird.  Glue the Whisper White and the Dapper Denim layers together with multipurpose glue.  Add the bird with the Flirty Flamingo back to the Whisper White layer with small dots of multipurpose glue.  Stamp sentiment in Basic Black and add three pieces of Washi Tape.
  • Add layers to base card with Adhesive Strips.
  • Inside there is a layer of Dapper Denim 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ attached with adhesive.
  • Cut a 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Whisper White.  Add verse in Basic Black and attach over Dapper Denim layer with adhesive.
  • Not showing is the envelope which has Washi Tape down the left side to coordinate with the card.

I’m not anxious to use this card, but when the time comes I know it will be tenderly received.

Had comments on the “B-ism” yesterday…so here is today’s.


Come on weekend…

Be HaPpY…Get Inky!



Earlier this week a confession was made about the stamp set used for today’s post…the set hadn’t been in the house an hour before it had been used, photographed and posted!  That’s a record!

There are so many possibilities in my head for this stamp, but today I’m saying “Go VOLS!” with the Baby Bear…


Here in Tennessee we are feeling hopeful about our SEC season so this card will definitely be sent to some of my VOL fans this year and maybe to some who are not!

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Tangelo Twist Cardstock,  plus the laser cut card and corrugated orange (perfect Tennessee orange) from May’s Paper Pumpkin
  • Ink:  Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Peekaboo Peach
  • Stamps:  Baby Bear
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Basic Pearls, Little Letters Thinlits (retired)


  • The laser cut Whisper White base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″
  • Attach the corrugated orange piece to the inside of the front cover with multipurpose glue.
  • Cut letter using Little Letters Thinlits from Tangelo Twist and add to space on card front with multipurpose glue.
  • On scrap Thick Whisper White stamp off with Crumb Cake and stamp baby bear.  Stamp 2nd baby bear in full strength Crumb Cake then the last detail baby bear stamp in Early Espresso.  Two tiny pearls were colored with permanent black ink and set in for his eyes.  Stamp off Peekaboo Peach with bow stamp then stamp on scrap.  Use full strength for second detail bow stamp.  Both images were “fussy cut” and added to card front with dimensionals.
  • Tip:  Line your Baby Bear stamps up from the bottom to be sure they land perfectly and you get a clean, cute baby bear.
  • Inside there is a Tangelo Twist layer 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ with a layer of Whisper White on top 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″

This card could be adapted to your favorite team too!  Just change the colors and name…

This Just Stinks…

This is my first time using both of these stamp sets…and doesn’t the little skunk just make the sentiment so much cuter?

How many times do we see friends going through a life situation that just isn’t fair…All.  The.  Time!  When I saw the sentiments in this set called “Here for You”, I could think of so many times I wish I had this set.

So here is my first card using Here for You and Foxy Friends


Oh!  He is so darn cute.  Here’s a peek at the inside…


That is the sweetest sentiment.  Personally I would add, “and I just wish this hadn’t happened to you.”

Life can be full of “stinky stuff” so this set will get plenty of use.

Here is the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Paper Pumpkin June kit card, Real Red and Thick Whisper White Cardstock
  • Ink:  Emerald Envy, Basic Black and Real Red.
  • Stamps:  Foxy Friends, Here For You (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Fox Builder Punch, Real Red 5/8″ Satin Ribbon, Ornate Tag Topper (retired), Decorative Label Punch and Basic Pearls.


  • The base card from June Paper Pumpkin is 5-1/2″ x 11″, scored at 4-1/4″
  • The Real Red tag was cut 2-1/4″ x 5″.  You can center this piece in tag punch and trim if you need to.
  • The Thick Whisper White tag is 2″ x 5″.  The bottom of both tags was punched with the Decorative Label Punch, the white one about 1/4″ shorter than the red tag.
  • On scrap Thick Whisper White stamp the trees in Emerald Envy and “fussy cut”.
  • Stamp sentiment in Basic Black on scrap Whisper White (yes, I cut my stamp so the “well” could be over the rest of the sentiment…won’t hurt the stamp at all).  Trim the tag and flag the ends with your scissors or the Banner Punch.
  • Attach tags together with multipurpose glue.  You may need to re-punch the hole at the top.  Add a 4″ piece of ribbon and staple in place.  Trim ends.  Add sentiment piece with multipurpose glue at the top of the tag.  Add the larger tree with multipurpose glue and the smaller tree with dimensionals.
  • Now lets make our little stinky skunk.  First punch out the Fox Builder Punch with copy paper and use this as your guide when stamping the pieces to build your skunk.  Lay the guide over the White Cardstock and stamp each piece where indicated by the punched piece.  Then you can just punch them out.  The white hair on the skunk’s head  and chest is included in the punch.  For the tail I just punched a second tail in white and trimmed it from each side and glued it on top of the stamped black tail.  I used small pearls painted with permanent black ink for his eyes.  Add the little critter to the tag with dimensionals.
  • Now the stripped piece at the bottom of the tag was a scrap left over from a previous project which you will not need.  I just punched a stamped piece with the Decorative Label Punch and placed it at the bottom.
  • Inside there is a 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ piece of Real Red with a 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ piece of Whisper White added with adhesive.  Stamp sentiment in Basic Black.  The tree was stamped in Emerald Envy on a scrap and added with multipurpose glue.

There will be many little critters in my future.  Later this week I have a fox for you that is adorable…what is it about a fox?  I’ve also seen deer, raccoon and some animals I’m not sure of made from this punch and stamp set.  Good thing these two are offered in a bundle!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


Oh…this is too funny!

Baby Love…

Today I confess this Baby Bear stamp has not been in my possession more than an hour…but I did have this frame all ready just waiting to make my sweet teddy bear and sit him on this shelf…


Wouldn’t this be the sweetest gift for a new mother expecting a baby girl?  And the baby kitty and bunny just make it that much cuter.

Here are the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…if you need directions fro the shadow box frame, you can find them here…


  • Paper:  Whisper White, Melon Mambo Cardstock plus Playful Palette and Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Basic Black, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Soft Suede and Smoky Slate…plus Daffodil Delight and Soft Sky Markers
  • Stamps:  Festive Fireplace (shelf), Baby Bear and Made With Love
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Small Bow Punch, Hearth & Home Thinlets Die (shelf), oval piercing pattern, Decorative Label Punch


  • This shadow box was made with Rose Red Cardstock 12″ x 12″.  The opening measures 4-1/2″ square.
  • The Playful Palette DSP in the background is 4-1/2″…I had to trim mine a smidge to keep it from buckling.  Attached with multipurpose glue.
  • Stamp sentiment in Basic Black and color with markers.  Use piercing pattern for oval, then punch with Decorative Label Punch.  Add to background with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Stamp the shelf twice in Soft Suede and cut with thinlet in Home & Hearth.  Cut the ends off each shelf and overlap to the width of the frame then glue together with multipurpose glue.  Add to shadow frame with Stampin’ Strip.
  • Stamp bunny and kitty with Basic Black and use Aqua Painter to lightly color leaving some white highlights with Smoky Slate (kitty) and Soft Suede (bunny).  Fussy cut and add to shelf with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Three-step stamp the baby bear.  I used Crumb Cake stamped off for the first stamp, Crumb Cake straight up for second stamp and Early Espress for the last stamp.  Magic!  The bear was then “fussy cut” and added to the shadow box shelf with Stampin’ Strips because they are just a little fatter than the dimensionals.
  • Stamp the bow with Blushing Bride and “fussy cut”.  Add to baby bear with glue dots.
  • The bigger bow on the top of the frame was punched from Pop of Pink DSP and added with glue dots.

Man!  I wish I knew more people having babies…I feel like making all sorts of baby cards with this set.  Think I’ll try some wedding cards after I made a baby boy shadow box.  Unfortunately this will all have to wait until I get back from watching my g’son play in his first state baseball tournament…

  • The sequins were originally clear and were colored with a permanent marker to coordinate.
  • The envelope was created by stamping three-step flower as above first, then masking.  With mask in place stamp background, leaves and splats.  Remove mask…magic!  Did I ever say I LOVE masking?

I really like this little notecard and think it would be nice to have several on hand…

Maybe a set using all the new InColors.

Here’s your “B-ism” for the day…

Sugar Plum Shaker…

I’m “over the moon” with the new Stampin’ Strips…make shaker cards so easy!


While cleaning out the paper catcher on a hole punch the other day, I collected all these cute, colorful dots and immediately thought they would make excellent material for a shaker card.  The sequins would have been nice, but these are much smaller and more colorful too.

Here are the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry Cardstock

Ink:  Sugar Plum and Basic Black

Stamps:  Playful Palette

Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Window Sheet, Sugar Plum Ruched Ribbon, Brick Wall Embossing Folder, Linen Thread, your choice of confetti and Stampin’ Strips


  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″
  • The Rich Razzleberry layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.
  • The top Whisper White layer is 3-3/4″ x 5″, embossed with Brick Wall EF.  Attach this layer to the Rich Razzleberry layer with adhesive.  Add a strip of Sugar Plum Ruched Ribbon to the top of these two layers with adhesive, then to card front.
  • Make loops with ribbon and tie center with Linen Thread.  Attach to card front with glue dots.
  • Stamp the artist’s easel from Playful Palette on Whisper White with Sugar Plum ink and “fussy cut”.  Cut a piece of Window Sheet 2-1/4″ square and attach to back side of easel.
  • Cut a piece of scrap Whisper White 2-1/4″ square.  Stamp brush stroke stamp in Sugar Plum ink three times without reinking.  Stamp sentiment in Basic Black.  Add Stampin’ Strips around edge of square, place confetti inside and place “fussy cut” easel on top.  Add to card front with multipurpose glue.
  • Inside there is a layer of Rich Razzleberry 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ with a layer of Whisper White over it 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.  Stamp the brush stroke inside like the card front and add sentiment about birthday in Basic Black over the brush strokes.

Isn’t that a fun and interactive card.  I love those little tiny dots in there…

So today is the first day of games at the baseball tournament.  We are planning on really HOT weather and hoping there is no rain.

Patriotic Thanks…

Next month my son-in-love will participate in a change of command ceremony where he will become Battalion Commander, Special Forces and host a reception afterwards.  This is a big military advancement for him and I’m thinking he will need some thank you cards handy afterwards.

With that in mind I have been working on different designs that would be appropriate for him.  Once I have the design finalized, I’ll create several.  Because Sweetums will be traveling to Seoul, South Korea to attend this military ceremony, the cards can travel with him.

Here’s one of the designs created…thought they just might make quick Fourth of July cards you could use, so I changed the sentiment on the banner…


Of course for him I’d change the sentiment back to “thank you”, but for you this might work.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Crumb Cake Note Card, Real Red, Dapper Denim and Whisper White Cardstock
  • Ink:  Dapper Denim, Real Red and Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Thoughtful Banners, Brush Strokes (background)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Duet Banner Punch, Lucky Stars Embossing Folder


  • The Real Red layer is 4-1/4″ x 2-1/4″.
  • The Whisper White layer is 4-1/8″ x 2-1/8″ stamped with Brush Strokes background stamp in Real Red and attached to Real Red layer with adhesive.  This double layer is attached to top of Crumb Cake notecard with adhesive.
  • The Dapper Denim layer is 2-1/4″ x 3-1/8″.
  • A piece of Whisper White 2-1/8″ x 3″ was put inside the Lucky Stars Embossing Fold that had been inked on the flat side with Dapper Denim ink pad then run through Big Shot.  Love the washed denim effect achieved with this technique.
  • Add the stars layer to the Dapper Denim layer with adhesive and then to card front with adhesive.
  • Stamp on scrap of Whisper White the banner in Real Red and the sentiment in Basic Black.  Punch with Duet Banner Punch and add to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This is my second design and I have one more rolling around in my mind  I’d like to try…if I don’t run out of time.  We are running down to Ocala, Florida this week to watch Jameson (one of “the littles”) play in his first AllStar State Baseball Tournament.  This will take lots of planning on my part…first for the furbabies then to cover my blog each day.  This whole trip is a surprise for them (except my daughter-in-love, she knows) so it should be lots of fun.  It is Fathers’ Day weekend, right?  I’m excited…

Hope you enjoyed this post today and feel inspired by something you’ve seen or read.
