Never Enough Thank You Cards

Do you find that you can never have enough thank you cards?  I’m forever needing them and thought I’d stamp a sheet of Whisper White using the Petal Parade stamp set (A SAB set).  Stamp the images randomly over the sheet.  I used Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist and Pink Pirouette classic inks for this sheet as I love the springy look of those colors together.

Lots of Thanks cabana

It’s like preparing a one sheet wonder set of cards and made this card for Rhonda, my sideline.  She’s shared many of her cards with me and wanted to send her a thank you.

The base card stock is Coastal Cabana.  The Whisper White layer is embossed with the Pretty Prints folder.  I cut out a portion of the stamped Whisper White and layered it onto a piece of Pink Pirouette card stock and adhered it to the front of the card.  The sentiment is from the photopolymer Another Thank you set (love the photopolymer sets!) stamped with Coastal Cabana classic ink and layered onto a strip of Coastal Cabana.  Added some Pink Pirouette candy dots to complete the card.

Blessed Easter in Raspberry

Using more of the Raspberry Ripple card stock to make this card with the Blessed Easter single stamp,

Easter Blessings Raspberry

Primrose Petals also in the same In Color family – 2012-2014 will be retiring at the end of June, so I’m making the most of these colors before they leave us.  The main card stock is Raspberry Ripple with a layer of Whisper White.  The top layer of Primrose Petals was embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder (SAB item) .  The tag is cut 3 3/4″ x 2″ and punched at the top with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch from the Occasions Mini.  The flowers from the Blessed Easter stamp is stamped in black and colored with Primrose Petals and Gumball Green markers (also in the 2012-2014 In Color family).

The tag is stamped with the sentiment from Blessed Easter using Raspberry Ripple classic ink and punched with the Label Bracket Punch.  It is layered on top of two Raspberry Rippled punched Label Bracket punched pieces.  One is cut horizontally in the middle and the other vertically, trimmed and adhered to the back of the white sentiment piece.  The tag is finished with a piece of Primrose Petals 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon.  The tag and sentiment are popped onto the layers with dimensionals.  A few basic pearls are added underneath the sentiment.

Blessed Easter and New Photopolymer Stamp Sets

There are several single stamps offered in the current Occasions Mini and this is one that can be used for other occasions other than Easter.  You can easily separate the image and sentiments and mount them on two separate wood blocks or mount the image on one side of the wood block and the sentiment on the other side, creating two stamps!


Step Into Spring Easter

The base card stock is Coastal Cabana, with a Whisper White mat.  Cut out the oval (use third largest size oval framelit)  in the mat first before running it through with the Big Shot using the Stylish Stripes embossing folder.  Stamp the image on a piece of White card stock and color with blender pens.  Using the Oval framelits, cut out the Coastal Cabana “frame” using two of the framelits to create the frame (use second and third largest size oval framelits) to cut the frame.  Add a length of 3/8″ Coastal Cabana Ruffle Stretch Trim across the mat and then top it off with the sentiment stamped with Coastal Cabana classic ink and punched out with the Label Bracket punch and adhered to the front of the card with dimensionals.


  • Blessed Easter Single Stamp, #133212 Wood only
  • Ovas Collectionl Framelits, #129381

Peaceful Petals – Weekly Deals

Today’s card uses not only the beautiful Peaceful Petals stamp set (love it!) but also incorporates the oval Designer Frames Embossing Folder that is one of this week’s special deals!

Peaceful Petals Raspberry

Raspberry Ripple is the base card stock (and if you love this color be sure to stock up as it is one of the In Colors 2012-2014 that will be leaving us at the end of the catalogue year just a couple of months away).  The second layer is Smoky Slate.  The designer frame is embossed in the centre of the Whisper White layer.

The large flower from Peaceful Petals is stamped randomly using Smoky Slate and Raspberry Ripple classic ink and the leaves were stamped in Gumball Green, also part of the 2012-2014 In Colors that will be gone at the same time.  Wishing thinking is that Stampin’ Up! would replace the Garden Green with Gumball Green as it’s a beautiful shade of green – full of life!

The centre of the frame has a piece of Raspberry Rippled punched with the Extra-Large Oval punch.  The sentiment is from Four You stamped with Raspberry Ripple classic ink and punched out with the Scallop Oval punch.  These two pieces are popped up with dimensionals.  A couple of butterflies in Raspberry Rippled are added (sometimes it’s great to have those butterflies to hide little imperfections – lol).  I have a zip-lock bag of pre punched or rolled through the Beautiful Wings embosslit that I can dip into for times like this.


  • Peaceful Petals Stamp Set, Wood #133104, Clear #133107
  • Four You Stamp Set, Wood #130535, Clear #130538
  • Designer Frames, #123130 -  FEATURED ON THIS WEEK’S WEEKLY DEALS
  • Extra-Large Oval Punch, #119859
  • Scallop Oval Punch, #119856
  • Bitty Butterfly Punch, #129406

Step Into Spring Cantaloupe

I especially like this year’s Sweet Sorbet SAB Designer Series Paper – so much so that I’ve ordered two packages of it!   The main card stock is Crisp Cantaloupe with a layer of Pool Party.  The top layer has a Whisper White piece of card stock rolled through the Big Shot with the SAB Decorative Dots embossing folder.  The lower portion of the top layer is a piece of the Sweet Sorbet DSP.  There’s a fringe of Crisp Cantaloupe card stock at the bottom cut with the Fringe Scissors.  This layer is tied together with a length of Crisp Cantaloupe 3/8″ Ruffle Stretch Ribbon.

The sentiment from Petite Pairs is stamped using Crisp Cantaloupe classic ink on Whisper White and punched out with the Scallop Oval and layered onto a piece of Pool Party punched with the Decorative Label punch and added to the card with dimensionals.


  • Petite Pairs Stamp Set, #128706 Wood, #122497 Clear

I remember as a child that we had these kaleidoscopes that we looked through squinting with one eye and turning it around and around to get all these beautiful kaleidoscopic patterns.

When my stamping friend, Rhonda, shared the pattern for this card, it was a natural to use the Kaleidoscope DSP from the Occasions Mini.


The card base is Basic Black cut 5″ x 10″ and scored at 5″.  The Strawberry Slush layer is cut 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ and then rolled through the Big Shot using the Decorative Dots (SAB) embossing folder.  The squares are 1 1/4″ (so happy I kept those punches even though they retired) to cut the squares.  A Strawberry Slush In Color Boutique Detail in the centre completes the card.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Vivid Vases Meets Watercolor Wonder Designer Note Cards

Have you discovered the Watercolor Wonder Designer Note Cards and Envelopes in the Occasions Mini?  They are absolutely fabulous!   In the package you will receive 20 printed cards on watercolor paper – 4 each of 5 designs with 20 Ivory envelopes.  The cards are 3 1/2″ x 5″.

I hadn’t used the Vivid Vases stamp set and made this card with it using one of the note cards.

Vivid Vases Watercolor Wonder Notes

Vivid Vases is a single stamp and you can separate the image from the sentiment to make two stamps.  I inked up the image with black ink and colored the flowers and added the water in the vases with a blender pen.  A tiny pearl is added to the second flower from the left and a little ribbon knot made from Pretty in Pink 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon (retired) added to the other vase.

The sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts was stamped on the front and the sentiment “You’re a whole lot of wonderful” from Vivid Vases is stamped on the inside of the card.

Supplies used:

  • Stamp Sets:  Vivid Vases Wood #133818 $14.95; A Dozen Thoughts Wood #131056, $32.95; Clear #131056, $22.95
