I bet many a CPA is drinking more coffee than usual today!  I absolutely love this stamp set, Perfect Blend (#130745), and it’s so fitting for our city of Seattle.  This card also uses a great accessory, Retro Fresh Washi Tape (#133001) along with Chocolate Chip cardstock and ink.

Enjoy another cup of coffee today and see you tomorrow for more inspirations.

photo 1Just got back from a little get-away with my husband to Palm Desert, California.  Stayed at a beautiful spot and enjoyed the hot weather and the flora and fauna of the area.  Seattle is experiencing another spring weather day and it’s a perfect compliment to this card.

The stamp set, Vivid Vases, was stamped in Stayzon Black Ink and then colored with a blender pen using Crushed Curry, Pool Party, Calypso Coral & Wisteria inks. A classic, elegant card perfect for that special someone who is totally “A Whole Lot of Wonderful”.

It’s a beautiful spring day here in Seattle meaning we’re in need of a spring-flower card.

This card features the stamp set Mixed Bunch (#1254537, pg. 89 in the catalog) and the coordinating Blossom punch (#125603, pg. 183).  Ink colors used were Pool Party, Old Olive and Summer Starfruit.

Enjoy your day and see around for more inspirations!

photoHow cute are these!!! I CASE’d (copy and share everything) these from Dawn Griffith’s blog, Dawns Stamping Thoughts.  So easy to make and most impressive to give.

The decorative paper is from the In-Color Designer Series Paper Stack (pg. 152 #130136) and the stamp set, Another Great Year (pg. 34 #133038), found in the Celebrate the Everyday mini catalog.

I will be offering a class on how to make these later this month.  Keep checking my blog for more details.

Have a great weekend and see you Monday!

This weekend I’m having a garage sale of retired Stampin Up stamp sets and decorative papers.  For every $10 spent, customers will be able to create a make-n-take card.  These cards are from the Happenings Simply Created Card Kit (#133329, $14.95) in the Celebrate the Everyday Mini Catalog.  In this kit you receive the pieces for making 15 cards – the card base, the designer paper, the die-cut accents, the buttons and twine.  You can add your own greetings or purchase the Says It All stamp set (#133170 $13.95) which compliments this set wonderfully.

See you tomorrow with more inspirations!
