One More Time…

Look at this chubby little baker…cute or what?

his glamour close up…

Side view showing dimension and that gorgeous chevron ribbon in Crushed Curry…

And a peek inside.

You know what my favorite thing is about this card?  Other than it’s cute, right?  It’s non-gender or age specific.  Which makes it a great stamp in my world!

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

  • Ink:  Craft White, VersaMark, Archival Basic Black

Loves Me, Loves Me Not…

Yes remembering my childhood and teaching my children and now g’children how to pull the petals of a daisy saying, “Loves me, loves me not”.  Such sweet memories…

So you will understand why today’s post is so close to my heart.

Oh, be still my heart!  How sweet is she?

All coloring was done with water color pencils and a damp round brush.

And a side view showing her shadow which was “painted” in with black water color pencil and the dimension.

and a peek inside!

In reality this is a really simple card, but it does use three different framelit sets and the Daisy Punch.  I still love it anyway!

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits


  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Cardstock, plus water color paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Daffodil Delight
  • Stamps:  Birthday Delivery, Soft Sayings Kit (sentiment…I couldn’t help it the sentiment was perfect!) and Daisy Delight
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  1/2″ Circle Punch, Daisy Punch, Scalloped Ovals Framelits, Birthday Friends Framelits, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, Adhesive Strips and Water Color Pencils plus small round brush


  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • The Daffodil Delight layer is 3-3/8″ x 4-3/8″.  Cut with scalloped oval framelit leaving a little more room at bottom for sentiment.  Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black then attach to card from positioned centered side to side and closer to the bottom to make room for daisy at top.
  • Stamp girl with Archival Basic Black on water color paper, let dry.  Color with water color pencils.  I used Calypso Coral lightly for skin tone, Pacific Point for dress and Soft Suede and Daffodil Delight for hair.  Cut out with framelit.  Isn’t it so cool this framlit can cut out this stamp of the girl backwards and the girl from the DSP from the front?  Clever designer!  Add to center of scalloped oval on card front with strip adhesive.  It stands up taller than dimensionals.
  • Cut branch from Old OLive with branch thinlit in Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  Cut away one of the branches so you have a single branch.  Stamp two daisies on scrap Thick Whisper White in Archival Basic Black.  Let dry!  Using a dauber and Daffodil Delight ink pad, color centers.  Punch out both daisies.  Stamp the detailed flower center stamp on Daffodil Delight scrap with Daffodil Delight ink and punch out with 1/2″ Circle Punch and add to daisy center.  Cut one daisy in half.  Be sure there are no petals above half way of center.  Glue (SNAIL or multipurpose glue) three petals from those you cut away to back of first layer so they fill in the blank spaces.
  • With glue dots or multipurpose glue add stem to hands and back of daisy.  Add daisy to top right corner of card front with two dimensionals.
  • Inside the Daffodil Delight layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached with SNAIL.
  • The Thick Whisper White layer is 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ attached with SNAIL.
  • Add stem with multipurpose glue and one half daisy made the same as the card front daisy with a dimensional.  Stamp center like previous daisy and add to flower center.

Like I said in the beginning, this is a pretty simple card, but does use several pieces from different sets.

Tomorrow’s post is pretty special, so I hope you’ll stop by and participate!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

And you can always be HaPpY with inky fingers!



Special Delivery…

Remember those special birthdays with this Birthday Delivery Bundle and you are sure to impress.

And loving this bundle is sooooo easy.  Is it the retro look?  The primary colors?  The creative design and coordination of the framelits?

The answer is yes!, yes! and yes!

Today’s highlight is on the sweet little girl image on the designer series paper and the stamp.  How cool is it that the framelit cuts out both even though the stamp is not the front but the back of the little girl?

Here’s today’s post…

Isn’t she just the cutest?  And all you have to do is cut her with the framelit from the DSP!

And her glamour close up…(the gift box was also cut with a framelit from the DSP!)

and a side view…

I’m hoping you won’t mind another personal post…not quite like yesterday’s post but still a card of encouragement.

A week or so ago my grandson, Jameson, and his 8-year old team (Coached by my son, Jeff) won the baseball Florida State Championship.  And a photo was snapped just after the game…

Now that’s a couple of happy baseball players!

Since Sweetums and I were not able to go that weekend, I designed a card just for Jameson to celebrate the championship and encourage him to keep working hard toward qualifying for the World Series…

Using the Custom Tee Stamp Set and Framelits I was able to create his team shirt almost to a “T”!

Glamour close up.  The logo was hand drawn and a little tricky, but it turned out fine.

A side view…

and a peek inside where we wrote a note congratulating him and his team (and the coach too, of course) and encouraged him to keep working hard.

Everybody doesn’t play baseball, but I can see this set used for almost any sport.  The problem is this set will only be available until May 31!

Here’s your Stuff ‘N Digit for this card…


  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Basic Black and Real Red Cardstock
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Real Red and Pacific Point
  • Stamps:  Custom Tee, Thoughtful Banners
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Stitched Circle Framelits, T-Shirt Builder Framelits, Lucky Stars Embossing Folder


  • The Real Red base card is 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored, folded and burnished at 4-1/4″
  • The Basic Black Layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached to the card front with SNAIL
  • The Thick Whisper White layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Run through Big Shot with the Lucky Stars EF and attach to card front with SNAIL.
  • Cut a Real Red circle and a Thick Whisper White stitched circle.  Use the Real Red circle to draw light pencil lines on the Whisper White circle and then add stitches with Real Red marker.  Add the Real Red circle center right with SNAIL.  Add the Whisper White circle in top right corner with dimensionals.
  • Cut Three T-shirts with framelit, one Real Red, one Basic Black and one Thick Whisper White.  To recreate his baseball shirt I laid the Whisper White one on top of the Basic Black and trimmed away the sleeves then trimmed the Basic Black shirt sleeves so that they were just a smidge bigger.  With multipurpose glue add the Basic Black to the Real Red shirt.  The logo I hand drew and colored with markers.  I drew the number in pencil first and went over it with a black Journal Pen.  Then glue the Whisper White Shirt on top of the Basic Black.  I used a the corner of a square punch to trim the neckline to a “V”.  Add shirt to card front with dimensionals.
  • The banner was stamped in Real Red.  The sentiment was curved on the Acrylic Block to fit the curve of the banner and stamped.  I hand cut this banner to cut around hanging letters and attached to card front with dimensionals.
  • Inside the Basic Black layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ with a Whisper White layer on top that is 3-3/4″ x 5″.  Stamp #1 in bottom right corner.

There MIGHT have been a small monetary gift inside…

It’s times like this I’m glad I’m a SU! Demo and have all the tools to make these special cards for all those special people in our lives.

If you are inky…you must be HaPpY!


Twice the Fun…

Recently a friend of mine became a grandmother for the first time…with TWINS!

We have all enjoyed waiting with her for the arrival…which happened this past weekend six weeks early.  Both babies are doing well and she is beyond words excited to welcome this little girl and boy to her world.

To celebrate their arrival I will be giving her this frame to proudly display their first pictures…

This frame will hold three 4″ x 6″ photos, but I chose to add their names to the center panel.

Their cute little names were cut from Designer Series Paper Birthday Memories with the Little Letters Framelits Dies.

This little retro “cutie” was cut from the same DSP using a framelit for her…

And this little foxy friend carrying his welcoming banner was also cut from the same DSP with a framelit.

This was a fun project completed in an afternoon thinking how amazing it will be to bring home two little babies.  Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper, Thick Whisper White Cardstock plus Water Color Paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Birthday Delivery, Lovely Friends
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Little Letters Framelits, Birthday Friends Framelits, Blue & Pink water colors, Large Round Brush, Journaling Pen and frame from Big Box Store


  • Cut letters for name from DSP and another set from Thick Whisper White Cardstock and glue together with multipurpose glue.
  • The water color paper was cut to fit inside the center panel.  Wet one half of paper with water and apply water color.  Let the paper do most of the work for you.  Don’t worry about making the color solid.  A little variation in color is more interesting.  Once this half is dry repeat for the second color.  Let this dry completely before working with it.
  • Draw placement line for name (and maybe a date if you aren’t having twins) and add letter/numbers with multipurpose glue.  Stamp in center is from Lovely Friends.  I selectively inked just the “and” from one of the stamps and used the scroll from another.
  • Cut a set of balloons from DSP (just the balloons) and add to this panel.  Draw strings with a black journaling pen.  This panel was glued inside the center panel.  I then reinserted the piece of paper that came with the frame.  I would have cut a piece of cardstock, but it would have taken a 12 x 12 piece of Whisper White cardstock and I didn’t one…
  • The little girl, fox and banner were cut from the DSP using coordinating framelits.  Also cut the same images from Thick Whisper White Cardstock and glue together.  Fussy cut a set of balloons including strings from DSP.  Glue this cutout to a piece of Thick Whisper White with multipurpose glue and “fussy cut” .
  • Add all of these pieces to the frame front with Strip Adhesive.

Hope this post inspires you to create some home décor as a gift or for your own home.

My Mother’s Day weekend was filled with flowers…

Aren’t they gorgeous?  And babies…

A really special day…hope yours was too!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

Dedicated to those of us who have lost our moms…

Come get inky with me…Be HaPpY!



Henry’s First Birthday…

Alright, I know he was just born, but this Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper just kept calling his name.  So…I made this 8″ x 8″ sampler to celebrate his first birthday next March!

Birthday Delivery Spinner…

It just doesn’t get much more fun that this…the last weekend of this month Sweetums and I will be traveling to NYC to surprise our g’daugher, Lyla (the littles), for her 10th birthday!  She knows nothing about the trip or that we will be at the airport when she arrives.  Can you say excited?

So you know there has to be the most special birthday card, right?

Cutie Pie, right?

Glamour close up…

Side angle…

From the top…

Making this card was the most fun…here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Pink Powder Cardstock, plus Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Real Red, Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Birthday Delivery
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Birthday Friends Framelits Set, Copper Thread, Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pen, Thin Tipped Glue, Tear Tape, Stitched Ovals Dies


  • Cut the Powder Pink card base 4-1/4″ x 11″.  Score at 5-1/2″.  Cut another panel 4-1/4″ x 6″, score at 1/2″ on long side.  Attach the shorter panel to the double panel with Tear Tape. Basically you have six panels counting front and back.  Five panels are decorated.

  • Let’s start with the one just above.  In the center panel place a Whisper White layer 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ with a DSP layer on top 4″ x 5-1/4″.  One panel done!
  • The panel with the oval opening has a Whisper White layer 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″.  The DSP layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Attach layers together and to card front with just a smidge of SNAIL.  Run through Big Shot with the smaller Stitched Oval Framelit to cut all three layers at the same time…it works, I promise and your layers will be perfectly aligned!  Take layers apart.  With the Scalloped Oval Framelit, cut just the DSP layer.
  • Let’s make the cutie pie girl.  Cut the figure from DSP with matching die.  Stamp on scrap Whisper White the back of her.  Color with watercolor pencils and a Blender Pen and cut out with matching die.  Cover both pieces with Thin Tipped Glue and let dry completely.  Once dry add multipurpose glue to backside of one piece, lay a 10″ piece of Copper Thread top to bottom then add second piece on top.  Add an acrylic block over it to hold it in place until completely dried.
  • Now add the Whisper White panel to the card front with multipurpose glue.  Lay the girl in the center of the oval with copper thread extending over edges.  Add multipurpose glue and attach DSP layer on top.  Add weight and let dry completely.  Trim Copper thread at edges.  Give the girl a few turns and watch her spin!.  The flag was stamped on scrap Whisper White and cut out with framelit.  Add to card panel with multipupose glue.
  • Now let’s work on the opposite side of all three panels.  Starting with the center panel there is a layer of Whisper White 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached with SNAIL.  The DSP layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached with SNAIL.  There are three balloons cut with framelit attached to background with dimensionals.
  • The panel that serves as the “stop” for the easel is a piece of DSP 2″ x 4-1/4″.  The Stitched Oval Framelit was used with Pink Powder CS attached with dimensionals.  The sentiment was stamped on scrap Whisper White and punched with the new Pretty Label Punch and attached to the oval with dimensionals.  The gift box was cut from DSP with Framelit and added with SNAIL.
  • The Belly Band that holds the card together is 2″ x 11″ Whisper White scored at 4-3/8 and 9-1/4″.  The DSP layer is 1-3/4″ x 11″ attached with SNAIL.  The Whisper White oval was the one cut from the card front stamped in Real Red.  The cake was cut from DSP with Framelit and attached with SNAIL.  Wrap closed card and overlap ends.  Add Tear Tape to close Belly Band.

This card took a little time…like starting it last night and letting the pieces dry well then finishing this morning.  Honestly it takes more time to photograph and write up that it does to make it.  But you should definitely give one of these spinner cards a try…fun!  This bundle is the perfect place to start!  All supplies available June 1st!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and taking a peek.

Birthday Memories…

Here’s a card we made with new product at OnStage in Savannah.  The images in this set REALLY appeal to me (love them)!  I have so many sketches done for this suite of products, but my order won’t be here until Friday so stay tuned…

Awwww…cute, right?  Can’t wait to get my hands on this set.

Here are the new incolors …

The florescent lighting distorts the pure color somewhat.  These samples were part of the table centerpiece.  From left Tranquil Tide, Lemon-Lime Twist, Powder Pink, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig.  Don’t they look nice together?  It’s always exciting to have new colors to work with.

Today I’d like to share more swaps from the weekend…
