A Sweet Talk 5 Envelopes Card

We made this card in my last class, and I like more every time I see it!

When I got the Sweet Talk Suite, I loved the die for the little envelopes. I wanted to have a whole bunch on the card, so I came up with this.

The Sweet Talk Suite is on page 8 of the new mini catalog. The suite includes the stamps, the dies, an embossing folder, treat boxes, iridescent rhinestones, ribbon, and the cute DSP (Designer Series Paper). For this card, I used 3 of those things: the stamps, the dies, and the paper.

Here’s all the stuff I used!

Otterly Awesome! This SAB rocks!

This year’s first SAB is one of my favorites. I love the otters and the Simply Marbleous paper!

I used the Diorama dies to make it look like one of the otters was swimming, one peeking, and one standing up outside of the water.

I colored the Otters with the Watercolor pencils. I used Early Espresso, Basic Gray, and Pumpkin Pie. I colored, then I went over all of it with Gamsol- an odorless mineral spirits. I used what they call “Blending Stumps” to color the Gamsol on top of the pencil markings. You can google that- they sell them in many places.

The grass/plants dies is from the new Horizon dies from the mini catalog.

Here’s everything I used!

Reversed Leaves for Something Else!

After I made the Ladybug card and video, I had the cardstock with the reversed leaves on it. I wanted to make something different, so I used other SAB sets to make this one! (The girl is from the Catching Butterflies stamp set, the leaves from Island Vibes, and the sentiment from Special Moments- all SAB). The beautiful brass butterflies are in the new mini catalog. They are gorgeous! The sun is from the stamp set Sharing Sunshine from the annual catalog.

I used Garden Green for the leaves and sentiment. For the sky, with a blending brush, I used Coastal Cabana and Crushed Curry. The sun was stamped with Mango Melody.

Here’s the video on how I made the leaves:

After tomorrow, I’ll provide the product list for this card and the ladybug one!

Ouch! Quick Video on Grass Making!


I made this card a few days ago. I mentioned it when I showed the “You Got This” card- the card for the 9 year old, teammate of my youngest son in XC,  who has been diagnosed leukemia. Here’s a link to that:

You Got This

This card was fun to make, but it just didn’t seem like the right card to give to that kid.

I stamped the Back to Your Feet critters in Memento Black and colored them with Blends. I then fussy cut them.

The trees and grass are from the dies Inspiring Canopy. Here’s a short video of how I did the grass with those dies:

The background was made with Balmy Blue and Pool Party, and the Blending Brushes.

This card would be great for a kid who broke a bone! Two of my kids have had broken bones!

You Got This


My youngest son (14 year old Christian) runs on a Cross Country team. One of his teammates, younger than him, had been sick for a few weeks and found out a few weeks ago why. He has leukemia. He is 9 years old, has two younger siblings and his parents are expecting their fourth kid, due this month. As a mom, I can’t even imagine. I have been praying for him and his family nonstop.

They are doing a meal train for the family- here’s the link:


I wanted to make him a card that would be from Christian. I started with a different stamp set and realized it was just not right (I’ll show that card in a few days). Even though he is 9, I know from experience that boys are a little “cooler” starting around that age.

Our XC team colors are green and black, so I wanted to use that. I stamped the spiral twice- once in Granny Apple Green, rotated the paper 180°, and then in Soft Sea Foam. Use the Stamparatus for this!

I also stamped the spiral on the envelope using Soft Sea Foam.

I stamped two sentiments from the stamp set Through it Together. I used two different die cuts from Tasteful Labels.
