I'm on the Creative Crew!!!

Hi All!

Big news!!  I've been invited to join the Creative Crew over at Splitcoaststampers.  I'll be a guest designer from May through August.  It's been a busy couple of weeks designing for all kinds of challenges: Color Inspiration, Sketch, Technique and many more.  Our cards for the month of May go live tomorrow, so be sure to pop back in and see what I've created.  Our theme is 'Sweet' or 'Suite' Surprises.  I've tried to incorporate that into each of my cards.

Hopefully you'll be inspired to join in the fun and share some of your projects with us over on SCS. Here's a link to all of the May cards:  I have also included the Keywords for each challenge in each of my posts if you'd like to search on your own.

So excited to share with you guys!  Hope you love all the projects :)

So In Love

Hi All,

Just like the post says...I am so in love with this stamp set *swoon*.  Everything about it is pretty, feminine and romantic.

I CASED this card right from the Occasions Mini.  I switched up the sentiment and added a doily. I used the Very Vanilla side of the Doily for this card, but it also has a Whisper White side.  So versatile :) This stamp set can be used for any type of Celebration: Birthdays to Weddings to Anniversaries. That's what makes it so perfect.

Item # 143216 So In Love $15.00

Definitely Dahlia

Hi All,

This stamp has been around forever and I finally got it added to my collection.  It's such a great stamp: it's big enough to use on its own, or you can add in embelishments.

I got the idea for this card from Mary Fish over at Stampin' Pretty.  I chose to pair my Dahlia up with a gingham print from the Succulent Garden DSP.  This is also the first time I've used Sweet Sugarplum. It's such a soft, pretty purple.

Item # 139911 Definitely Dahlia $15.00

Item # 142778 Succulent Garden DSP $6.60
Item # 127802 Teeny Tiny Wishes $27.00
Item # 141395 Sweet Sugarplum Stamp Pad $6.50
The Succulent Garden will be retiring and is only available while-supplies-last.  Everything else is available if you'd like to add any to your collection.  Just pop me an email or click on the Order Online icon in the top right-hand corner.  Thanks for stopping by!

A Sweet Treat

Hi All!

I have a super cute little card for you today.  It's a technique called the Dutch Door Fold.  So simple to do, but looks so impressive when complete :)

I got the idea for the card from Kim Williams over at Pink Pineapple Paper Crafts.  Just adorable and so easy to make!  Below are the dimensions for each piece:

Peekaboo Peach
4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Rectangle (Base)
2 1/4 x 11 Strip Scored at 5 1/2 (Folded and adhered to bottom of the base)

Pool Party
1 1/4 x 5 1/4 Rectangle
2 x 5 1/4 Rectangle
2 1/2 x 2 1/2 Square

Tasty Treats DSP
1 x 5 Rectangle
1 3/4 x 5 Rectangle

Whisper White
2 1/4 x 2 1/4 Square

The Tasty Treats DSP is from the Occasions Mini.  It is available while supplies last.  There are some great prints in there perfect for birthdays or summer.  The stamp set I used is retired, but there is an ice cream set called Cool Treats in the Occasions Mini that would be great!
Item # 142770 Tasty Treats DSP $7.80

Item # 145181 Cool Treats Bundle $48.50
