Let’s Get Together at Les Shoppes!

I made this card pretty quick. Using the Les Shoppes DSP, I cut the blue one with all the white shops. I was looking at it and thought- I’ll just die cut some of the dies and add them to the paper. Pretty easy and looks so pretty!

I die cut the vines and the foliage with Granny Apple Green.

The street lamps are with Basic Black.

The sign and plant are die cut from the DSP.

The bench is Crumb Cake.

The awning is Basic White and Balmy Blue.

The sentiment, from Let’s Go Shopping stamp set, was stamped with Memento ink on Basic White. I then die cut with the Stylish Dies and added one sequin.

Very easy and comes out looking pretty cool!

Don’t forget! I have four more cards using the Les Shoppes/Let’s Go Shopping that I won’t share- but you can buy the PDF tutorial! It includes measurements, pictures, all supplies used and step by step directions. I have other PDFs too!

Did you know? I have PDFs for sale!

I started making PDFs of cards I made that I haven’t posted. And I won’t post them anywhere. I made 4 for 3 different stamp sets. As of now, I have:

Gone Fishing- the cards I’ve made with this suite is one of my most popular!

Let’s Go Shopping- this was a suite I didn’t know if I would order. I did, and I struggled with it for a while. I then got tons of ideas and I figured I wasn’t the only one who struggled with it!

Reach for the Stars- I think as of right now, this is my most popular. I have made three cards that people seem to really like! So, I made 7 more. 4 of them can only be seen in the PDF!

The new mini catalog starts soon and I’ll have a ton more for that!

The PDFs include pictures, measurements, supplies used and step by step instructions! You can see them all here.

If you would like to see another stamp set/bundle/suite used for these PDFs, let me know! Let me know if you have any questions!


House with Balloons! Video!


I made a house from two stamps from the Let’s Go Shopping! These stamps are meant for shops, but I figured a way to make a house.

Here’s my video:

In the video, you’ll see four more cards using the Let’s Go Shopping. I won’t share those anywhere, but you can get the instructions that include pictures, measurements, all supplies used and step by step instructions. I also have one for Gone Fishing and am working on others.  You can see them here:

Using the Basic Black Write marker, I colored the big shop stamp everywhere except the window and the door sign. I then used the top shop stamp to color just one window and stamped it on the “house” next to the door. Die cut and then colored with Lemon Lolly and Calypso Coral Blends.

I die cut a square from the Stylish Dies and then cut it in half. I embossed with the Timber embossing folder.

I die cut the “chimney” from the Let’s Go Shopping dies with Cherry Cobbler. Embossed with the Exposed Brick embossing folder.

I die cut the window overhang with Basic White and embossed with the Geometric embossing folder.

I used my Blending Brushes on a 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ piece of Basic White with Lemon Lime Twist and Balmy Blue.

There are 13 balloons. I used the Beautiful Balloons dies- the smallest balloon. After die cutting, I used the Wink of Stella on each one. Here’s the colors I used:

Daffodil Delight

Crushed Curry

Pumpkin Pie

Lemon Lolly

Pool Party

Blueberry Bushel

Tahitian Tide

Poppy Parade

Bubble Bath

Melon Mambo

Granny Apple Green

Soft Sea Foam

Lemon Lime Twist

I used baker’s twine from the Sentimental Rose card kit. It is not as thick as the Baker’s Twine you see in the catalog. I glued one to each balloon. I gathered them together at the bottom and added a bow with the Simply Elegant Trim.

I stamped the sentiment with Memento on Basic White. I die cut it with one of the Let’s Go Shopping dies. I used a Blending Brush with Balmy Blue ink to give it a bit of color.

Let me know if you have any questions!

15% off Stamps! Tomorrow (7/19) only!

I will give this suggestion: don’t order a stamp that has a bundle with dies or punches. If you want the bundle, it’s still cheaper to buy as a bundle than use the 15% off the stamp set.

There are tons of stamp sets that don’t have coordinating punches or dies. I have several of my list- those are the ones to buy!

Saying Thanks for… well, you know!

I made this card for friends of ours, my husband’s boss and his wife. They had us over for a little while and then took us to dinner. What better stamp set than Brewed for You?

Using the Delightful Eclectic DSP, I cut it to 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″. I then used the Basic Borders die, the one that has a peak at the top, and cut the top of my DSP.

I cut two pieces off Gray Granite paper: 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ and 1″ x 5-3/8″.

I die cut the “thanks” with the Alphabet a la Mode dies with Gray Granite.

With the 1″ piece and the “thanks”, I embossed with one of the Basic 3D Embossing folders.

I stamped all the glasses with Gray Granite on Basic White. Die cut them all.

The lines above the tall glasses is a stamp from Circle Sayings. I wanted it to look like the were saying “cheers”. I used a circle punch to cut them out.

Pretty easy card!

Happy Birthday with Grapefruit!

So Refreshing is a great bundle, the stamps are so pretty and the dies are awesome!

Since the stamp has fruit, I decided to make my background with the Sweet Citrus embossing folder. I used Lemon Lolly cardstock (5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″).

I stamped the pitcher and the glasses with Gray Granite. For the inside, I inked with Calypso Coral and stamped off once before stamping the inside. I wanted it to be a little lighter.

I stamped the fruit with Calypso but did not stamp off. I wanted them darker.

For the picnic blanket, I used Petal Pink and die cut. That’s what’s great about the So Refreshing dies- tons of dies that work on their own!

I stamped the sentiment on Basic White with Calypso Coral. Die cut with the Stylish Shapes dies.

I added a little bit of ribbon below the sentiment. It’s from the Sheer Ribbon pack.

Such a fun and pretty birthday card!

Celebrate USA! Happy 4th!

I always make a card for 4th of July! 🇺🇸 I used lots of fancy papers on this!

I used the Patchwork Pieces dies on two different papers:

Bright & Beautiful DSP

Textured Shimmer Paper (the white color)

Since I wanted red in there, too, I used Real Red ink and a Blending Brush on top of some of the white shimmer paper.

My background paper is Basic White embossed with the Exposed Brick Embossing Folder.

For the “USA”, I used the White Center Specialty paper (Night of Navy color) and the Alphabet a La Mode dies.

I used the same paper for the stars. Those are dies from the Beautiful Balloons. I added some Wink of Stella on top.

For the “celebrate” circle, I used the Circle Sayings Bundle with Real Red ink.

Side Step Card with Fish!

I had fun making this card! Side Step is kind of “old school” but it can work with so many stamps and dies/punches.

Here’s a video of me making this card (and something new from me!):

And here’s the PDF with measurements:


Ok, what I’m most excited about is that I have made 4 other cards using the Gone Fishing bundle/suite. I won’t share these cards, but you can buy the PDF Tutorial that gives you pictures, measurements, step by step instructions and all products used! I plan to make lots of PDF Tutorials for other products- check back soon!

To the Man Who Does Everything!

This is the card I made for my husband for Father’s Day. Since I used the He’s All That stamps, you could use that for other cards- not just Father’s Day!

My card has the “Wishing you a Happy Father’s Day” sentiment on the inside. You could change it to “Happy Birthday” or anything else!

I die cut a piece of Boho Blue with the Radiating Stitches dies, then embossed it with the Twisted Rope folder. I added some linen thread, and die cut a heart (also from Radiating Stitches) to tuck behind the sentiment, which is cut with the All That Dies.

The background paper is the Let’s Go Fishing DSP.

Pretty easy card! Most man cards are like that!

Don’t forget! More Gone Fishing cards that won’t be shared anywhere else:
