One of the great things about being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is getting new products from the catalog early! There is a beautiful new stamp called Wildflower Meadow that I used here.
I used Versa-Mark ink and stamped the image on vellum. Then I used white heat embossing powder to make the design pop. I backed it with Primrose Petals and Wild Wasabi card stock before I tied a Primrose Petals ribbons around it. I added a few large pearls and decided to leave well enough alone! (It’s always good to know when to quit!) I can put any sentiment inside… birthday, thanks, thinking of you.
I really love this stamp, I have a few other ideas about using it. And, there is a matching embossing folder…. lots of Wildflower Meadow fun! I’ll be featuring these cards at my New Catalog Open House on Friday, May 31,
This stamp and lots of other exciting and beautiful things are in the new catalog. You can begin ordering from that catalog on May 31. As always you can go to my 24-7 online store and order from the current catalog until June 2 and from the Spring catalog until May 31.

Oh, you could probably hear my sighs when I read that the Scallop Trim Corner Punch was going to be retired. I know there will be new things that I will love just as much but I did have a special place in my heart for that.
Last Fall, my friend Peg and I created calendars as gifts for our friends. Here’s the May page, featuring of course, the beloved Scallop Trim Corner Punch. Can you see why I love it?
Buttons, twine, butterfly, all lovely but I think it was the scallop work in the corners that really set it off.Not only is the punch retiring…. it is on sale. Click here to see all of the retiring accessories. Many, like the corner trim punch, are on sale. Just hop on over to my 24-7 on-line store and pick one up before they are gone!
A friend of mine recently underwent surgery and will be coming home today. What’s better than some home made chicken soup and a hand crafted card? Betsy’s Blossoms seemed a good choice for someone who is a gardener and loves anything rosy.
I’ve been into making these flowers lately. This time I used the Floral Frames Framelits in two sizes. Some spritzing and scrunching, a little heat from the Heat Tool and – voila! a flower. Hard to see in this picture but the Get Well sentiment was heat embossed. I love the new firm foam ink pads since they are ‘juicy’ enough to top off with some Iridescent ice embossing power and then heat up.
Marge, hope this card finds you feelng ‘rosy’!
Here’s what you need to put together a Get Well wish like this one.

Well, can you find some new products on this card?
There are two new things here. One is the Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper. Don’t you love the colors in this? The Calypso Coral really pops with this paper. The stamp is from a new set called Chalk Talk. I can’t show you the set but believe me there are some other great stamps in this set. I will be creating some other projects this week for my New Catalog Open House and will be displaying some of them here.
But don’t forget, with the new we lose some of the old. There are many great products that are now retiring. When you click here you can see all of the stamp sets and a list of retiring accessories (paper, ink, embellishments, punches.) Many are on sale!
So….figure out what you can’t live without then go on over to my 24-7 on-line store and order away!
A friend needed some graduation cards and I volunteered to make some for her. Hummmmmm…. what to do since I had no graduation stamp sets? Improvise!
I used a fun fold that I’ve used on cards before and made the angled area the space for the mortarboard and tassel. (See those other cards here and here.) The design at the bottom is from the Summer Silhouettes set. Congratulations was stamped and then heat emobossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder .
I hope my friend likes the card!
Here is a list of things you will need to take your hat off to a happy graduate!
Thanks for looking. I hope you’ll stop by my 24-7 on line store and order all your Stampin’ Up supplies.
I wanted to make some lacy thank you notes for Goddaughter Anne Marie to use after the lovely baby shower that her mother-in-law, Mary Gerhart gave last week. The Lacy & Lovely set really fit the bill. I hoped that I could make something that was reminiscent of the invitation. What do you think?
Thank you note card
Both the invitation and the note card are shades of pink. The note card was made with Primrose Petals card stock, ribbon and ink. The invitation was printed on a paper that had a little iridescence to it, so I used Shimmery White card stock for the front of the card. For the background I used the En Francaise stamp (stamped off.) The circle design was from the Daydream Medallions set. Mary used lots of shabby chic touches for the shower decorations including beautiful birdcages on each table so I think the hummingbird stamp echoed that nice touch.

All in all, it was a lovely shower!
