Spring Party Favors…

Today there will be a party at Rambling Rose Studio hosted by one of my stampin’ peeps.  She has five long time friends in from out of town.  They are spending several days together and she wanted them to experience her new love of stamping.

I told her SURE!  Bring those girls over and we’ll stamp away…

To celebrate their introduction into the stamping world, I’ve prepared three projects and made them these sweet spring favors…


You think they will like them?  Inside is Ghiradelli chocolate square (what’s not to like about that?) and the flower you see at the top is a pen stuck inside.  These would be perfect at a child’s birthday, a tea or shower.

Want the Stuff ‘N Digits?  Here you go…


  • Paper:  Best Year Ever DSP, Whisper White cardstock
  • Ink:  Memento Black, Calypso Coral
  • Stamps:  Cheerful Critters, hearts are from stamps in January Paper Pumpkin
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Artisan Embellishment Kit, banners (January Paper Pumpkin), Mini Treat Bag Thinlets, Pansy Punch (tops of pens), Daffodil Delight 5/8″ Satin Ribbon



  • I’ll just tell you to make your treat bags first based on the directions that come with the thinlet.
  • Stamp and color your critters.  They are mounted on banners left over from January PP, but you could use a 2″ x 5″ piece of cardstock and tag the ends with the Scallop Tag Topper instead.  Fill your bags and staple the hearts and banner to treat bag.
  • Embellish with pieces from Artisan Kit
  • The pen flowers are four Pansy punches.  Make an “X” in the center to fold over your pen.  Hot glue scrunching each one a little less.  Tie ribbon to hide your hot glue mess (well mine was messy)

These really didn’t take much time to make and I think they will be the perfect memento for the girls to take home with them.

Tomorrow I’ll show the hostess gift and maybe some photos of the event so be sure to stop back by.

Thanks for stopping by today…hope you have been inspired.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


Take one and spread it around…it’s better than make up!

Get inky…Be HaPpY!


Baby Bundle…

Today’s post is a CASe from a card Shelli demonstrated at Leadership last month.  I wanted this stamp anyway, but after I saw her card, it just had to be in my stash.  Here’s the card…


Are you going “awwwww”…well, that’s exactly what I did when I first saw this stamp.  Of course, this is a bee, but mine doesn’t have wings anymore…snip, snip.  They can always be put back in case they are needed though.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you just in case you’d like to make a similar card…


  • Paper: Crumb Cake Notecard, Calypso Coral and Whisper White cardstock, plus Best Year Ever  and Sweet Dreams DSP
  • Ink:  Memento Black plus Daffodil Delight and flesh Blendies
  • Stamp:  Baby Bumblebee
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Calypso Coral Pom Pom Trim, Crisp Cantaloupe Cotton Twine


  • The Calypso Coral layer is 4 3/4″ x 3 1/4″
  • The DSP layer is 4 5/8″ x 3 1/8″
  • Attach Calypso Coral layer and DSP layer to card front.
  • Cut a 3″ square for “blanket”.  Fold the right side corner towards the center folding back point.   Fold the bottom corner up toward center. Fold the left side corner to center and wrap to back attaching with glue dot.
  • Stamp baby on scrap of Whisper White in Memento Black ink.  Color stripes with Blendie.  Cut out leaving a 1″ tab at bottom.
  • Place inside blanket and attach head with dimensional.  Attach Pom Pom with glue dot over the baby’s head.
  • Stamp sentiment on scrap and trim ends with Hexagon Punch.  Layer with a Calypso Coral layer behind.
  • Attach baby/blanket with glue dots and sentiment with dimensional to card front.
  • Attach cotton twine with glue dot.

Quick and sweet.  Perfect for gift enclosure, would make an excellent baby shower invite or welcome baby card.

Today was a class day for me so it’s been quite busy but lots of fun.  I’ll show the cards we did in the next few days.  Each one had a specific technique to highlight the card.  I think everyone learned at least one new technique today and seemed to really enjoy themselves.  Fun for me too!

How is you day been?  Hope you had an excellent weekend and got your week off to a great start today.  Be sure to stop back by tomorrow to see what’s going on here at RRS…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


The UPS truck causes great commotion at my house ’cause the two fur babies go wild.  They love the driver but hate the truck…

Go get yourself inky…and Be HaPpY!



Sweet Baby Siena…

One of the most wonderful things about being a Stampin’ Up! Demo is the relationships you develop with people you create with.  In my classes I have some of the most wonderful people…truly a delight to be in their company.  Last week one of my stamping friends had a very special, much anticipated baby girl, Siena Marie.  Here’s her pic…


I can just hear the collective “awwwww…”  Isn’t she gorgeous?  Well, I couldn’t let the occasion pass without some really girly SU! something.  Here’s one of the things I took to her house…


It’s hanging on my studio door here, but it’s now at Baby Siena’s house.  Using the Banners Framelits (largest) and the polka dot stencil I created the background for the Spiral Die Roses and leftover alphabet letters from a Paper Pumpkin came in real handy.  A little paper lace, pink ribbon tied with Linen Thread and pretty white satin ribbon and it all came together and looked so sweet.  This was a lot of fun to make.  I love when a project in my mind  just comes together like this one did.

Do you have special occasions coming up in your circle of friends and family?  Stampin’ Up! has so many kits, embellishments and product to help you create a one-of-a-kind gift or decoration to celebrate.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”Think BIG, believe BIG, act BIG and the results will be BIG!”

Last night I scurried to book club after a busy class and brunch meeting in the afternoon to find my hands were embarrassingly inky…but I was HaPpY!


Zoo Baby Stampede…

Recently I posted a card similar to this one, but decided to show you this Convention Swap 2014 card front to show you how changing up colors can make a completely different look…


And, you could also use this same card for a birthday by adding a number where the “boy” and “girl” appears.  They are just so cute in person.  If you are interested in making this card, look under Babies & Kids category in the left column.  I posted the directions last week.

Tonight I will finish packing for Convention 2014 and will be up bright and early, 4:45 am and off to the airport.  I’ll post pictures each day from the convention for you so be sure to check back each day.  I’ll also be showing gifts I’ve made and more swaps.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”Google MUST be a woman because it knows everything!”

I’m still inky…and very HaPpY!


Sweet Baby Sampler…

Oh how I love babies…so I’m delighted to finally use my Zoo Babies stamp set to make this sweet sampler…


Isn’t that the sweetest thing?  I did use the new Lullaby DSP from the new catalog and took all my color selections from that paper for the background to the embellishments.  Are you ready to make a sampler?  They are amazingly easy but are time consuming if you have to fussy cut lots of pieces…which you usually do.  But it is so worth all your work and effort in the end.  Here are the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Lullaby DSP, Whisper White, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pool Party cardstock
  • Stamps:  Zoo Babies
  • Ink:  Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party, Hello Honey, Memento Black, and Soft Suede
  • Tools and Embellishments:  OK I used a few retired stamp sets for the backgrounds of the individual rectangles but you should look for tiny stamp images for the backgrounds and stamp off to keep the background…well, in the background! New Bakers Twine in Pool Party and Crisp Cantaloupe, Itty Bitty Flower Punch, Pearls and one odd button sliding around in the bottom of my drawer.  Works though.  Crystal Effects on all the animals.  A small section of the paper lace on the elephant.  The scalloped rectangle is an old die, but you could use the wavy blade or scallop blade on your SU! cutter to make these.


  • This frame was bought at a box store and measures 5 x 7.
  • The background DSP is 5 x 7
  • The first layer of the rectangle is 2 x 1 1/2″, the top layer is 1 7/8″ x 1 3/8″
  • All the rectangles and artwork are placed on the outside of the glass.  If you lay you glass down on the SU! paper pad, it’s very easy to get your pieces lined up perfectly.

Have fun putting your baby zoo together.  Leave me a message if you have questions.  Thanks for stopping by today.

Here is your “B-ism” for today…”Believe you can and you are half way there!”

Get inky…Be happy!
