New Online Exclusives


My card showcases the Garden Meadow Bundle and the Meandering Meadow Designer Series Paper. The Bundle features garden images and mixed font generic sentiments. The 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper illustrates beautiful watercolored garden scenes on one side and watercolor washed patterns on the other. The DSP can be used for just about any occasion.

Parts & Pieces

  • Start with a Crushed Curry cardstock card base cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.
  • Cut a Crushed Curry cardstock layer that measures 4″ x 5 1/4″. This is the layer you will die cut.
  • Cut a Basic White cardstock layer 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. This is the mat layer.
  • Cut the Designer Series Paper layer 3 1/2″ x 5″.
  • Stamp the sentiment with Mossy Meadow ink and die cut it with the coordinating die.
  • Attach the die cut layer over the Designer Series Paper layer using your favorite adhesive. I used liquid glue and added a thin line on the back of the arched open part of the frame and a thin line on the back of the outside of the layer.
  • I adhered the completed top layer to the Basic White layer and attached the layers to the front of the card base.
  • Attach the sentiment with Mini Dimensionals.

I stamped the inside of the card with one of the sentiments from the Garden Meadow stamp set. The little flower image at the bottom corner of the writing layer is stamped with Mossy Meadow ink and shaded with a Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend.

This is a quick, easy and fun card to put together. The Designer Series Paper features floral meadow scenes in lots of colors. Simply match up some cardstock, add a sentiment, and create a pretty card to send a special birthday wish.

A Case With Inked & Tiled

Hello friends!

Today’s card is a CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) from the Annual Catalog. The catalog card is a Slimline card. My card is an A-2 (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″), and I changed the sentiment and sentiment focal point punched layers by using different patterns from the Inked Botanicals 6″x 6″ Designer Series Paper.

I was attracted to the Inked Botanicals Suite as soon as I saw it. I especially love the images and clean sentiment fonts in the Inked &
Tiled Stamp Set. This Suite includes a stamp and punch Bundle. The punches caught my eye also. There are a lot of fun projects you can complete with these punches. Who doesn’t love a unique punch Bundle?

Today’s Card Pieces & Parts

  • You can download the PDF Tutorial below for more pictures and details on putting this card together.
  • I cut a Very Vanilla cardstock card base 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored it at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ side.
  • The Crushed Curry patterned paper layer is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. It covers the card front.
  • The Lost Lagoon patterned paper layer is 5 1/4″ x 2 1/2″.
  • The top Very Vanilla cardstock layer is 4 1/2″ x 3″.
  • The stamped images are stamped off once using Lost Lagoon, Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral ink.
  • I punched two “star” shapes directly from the Designer Series Paper.
  • The sentiment, stamped with Lost Lagoon ink, is punched with the “star” shaped punch.

I love the colors in the Inked Boanicals Designer Series Paper. Although I’ve used three colors, Pool Party and Petal Pink (the lighter versions of Calypso Coral and Lost Lagoon), give a more subtle look to the Suite’s color palette.

Inked Botanicals Designer Series Paper

I just realized something about todsy’s colors… Lost Lagoon and Calypso Coral are “Complementary Colors” (they’re opposite on the Color Wheel), along with a “yellow” (Crushed Curry). Here’s the rule: When in doubt, go with a yellow”! It works!

OK, I promise, no more rules!

So, pull out that fabulous Product Suite, stamp some pretty botanical images, add a layered sentiment cluster and a beautiful ribbon, and create something to say “hello” to a treasured friend!

Petal Park Makes Life Better

What a gret way to start my crafting week! The Petal Park Bundle and the Regency Park Designer Series Paper made it so much fun to come up with this card design and put it all together. Isn’t the mix of colors amazing! Love the “Brights” mixed with the “Subtles” and my favorite “Neutral”, Night of Navy, pulls it all together.

If you read my Blog regularly, you’ll know I’m always drawn to any shade of blue. The mix of Balmy Blue, Mango Melody and Night of Navy is, in my opinion, perfection.

So, let’s make a card!

Today’s Card Pieces And Parts

  • Start with a Night of Navy cardstock card base cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″.
  • The Regency Park Designer Series Paper Layer is 5 1/2″ x 3 3/4″.
  • I die cut a stitched circle that measures approximately 3″ in diameter.
  • The Basic White sentiment layer is die cut with one of the Tailor Made Tags Dies. It measures approximately 1″ x 2 3/4″.
  • I stamped and punched the flowers and leaves from the Petal Park Bundle. I used Crushed Curry, Mango Melody, Calypso Coral and Petal Pink ink. Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent ink give color to the leaves.
  • The die cut circle is adhered to the card front with Dimensionals, as is the sentiment layer.
  • I attached the flowers and leaves with glue.
  • I added a bow using some Pumpkin Pie Baker’s Twine, and added a few Matte Dots to embellish.

This is a simple card to put together using the products from the Regency Park Suite. To me, the colors are “happy”.

The Inside

Cut a Basic White card layer 4″ x 5 1/4″ for the inside writing layer and add a strip of DSP and a few flowers. I didn’t add an inside sentiment to this card, but when you create your version, use what works for you. Most of all, have fun.

So, find that amazing and bold floral patterned paper, add a circle, some flowers and a Baker’s Twine bow, and create something to send to someone special.

… the only limitation is your imagination!

The Greatest Abigail Rose

I know the flowers are baby cottage roses in today’s card, but the “floating” flowers remind me of a lotus. The Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper has such pretty subtle patterns, I thought I would mix in a little Basic Black. I like the outcome. The Basic Black mat layer gives this design a bit of pizzazz! A Petal Pink or Smoky Slate layer would to the same.

I am, by no stretch of the imagination, an expert with Stampin’ Blends. Today, they worked well for me. Not wanting to sponge or use a Blending Brush to color the flowers, the Blends gave me more defined color. I am happy with the outcome.

This truly is a quick and easy card. The layer dimensions and a brief “how to” are below.

Today’s Card Bits &Pieces

  • The Very Vanilla card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″.
  • I cut the Basic Black layer 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  • The Smoky Slate leaf pattern paper layer is 3 3/4″ x 5″.
  • I cut the Petal Pink striped layer 3 1/2″ wide x 3 1/4″. long. With the striped pattern facing you, start at the top left corner and gently tear the paper toward you on the diagonal to the right edge.
  • Years ago, before we had detailed layering dies, we tore paper often to give our projects visual interest.
  • To make this layer look a little more “vintage”, you can lightly sponge a little ink over the torn edge. I chose not to for today’s card.
  • I used the large die cut from the Cottage Dies and the coordinating Designer Series Paper pattern to cut the flower images.
  • Light Calypso Coral and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends gave me the color for the flowers and I used a Light Just Jade Bland for the leaves.
  • Overall, it took very little time to “prep” my card pieces.
  • I adhered all the layers with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and attached them all with glue.
  •  I love how the Champagne Rhinestones look with this suite, so I added a little sparkle to the sentiment.

So, pull out the products from your Abigail Rose Suite, die cut a few flowers, add some color and create something with a little pizazz!

Lovely You Butterfly Brilliance

Today, I’m showcasing the Brilliant Wings Dies. And they’re not going away! They are a beautiful set of classic butterfly dies.

It’s been a while since I created a “tag” card. I used the largest tag in the Tailor Made Tags Dies.  These are also staying with us. It’s a versatile set of tag dies that can be used as a card or sentiment layer.


Today’s Card Bits And Pieces

  • The standard A-2 Highland Heather card base is cut 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″.
  • I added a Basic White card layer that measures 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.
  • The Highland Heather patterned paper layer is 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  • It’s a pattern from the Flowering Fields DSP pack.
  • The Brilliant Wings Die set has a die that resembles ink splatter. I love the texture it creates.
  • I used the ink splatter die to die cut texture into the patterned paper layer.
  • The Basic White tag is adhered with Dimensionals and stamped with an image from the Lovely You stamp set.
  • I scattered three die cut butterflies and a few 2021-2023 In Color Jewels to finish this card.

So, cut a Highland Heather card base, die cut some ink splatter, add a few gorgeous jewels and create something lovely!
