With Heartfelt Sympathy


Great quick and simple card…..that’s what I love.

You could use any greeting on this card.  Stamp, Embossing and Assemble

Putting your card together

  1. Cut Stampin’ UP! Cucumber Crush Cardstock base 8 1/2 x 11 and score at 5 1/2.  For the layer of Cumbumber Crush Cardstock, Cut a  piece at 3 1/4 x 2 3/4.    Cut a piece of Gold Foil 3 1/2 x 3.  And for the Designer Series Paper, I cut 4 x 5 1/4 using the Stampin’ UP! Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper   (You probably can’t see on this image buy there are foil highlights on the flowers that coordinate with the foil sheets.
  2. Now that we have our pieces cut.  Assembly by layering the Designer Paper on the Base Card, then center the Gold Foil Paper in the Center
  3. To stamp the image from Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Sympathy, you will take the embossing buddy and swipe this piece of cardstock so your embossing powder will not spread all over.   Stamp your image using Versamark ink and immediately add your Copper Embossing Powder and heat with your Heat Tool.   Love the effect!
  4. Just add a saying to the inside and maybe stamp a little something on your envelope and you are all done.  Bet that won’t take you anymore than a couple of minutes.  Love it!

Supplies I used:   Click on Item # below

Hope you like this card….remember you can use any greeting, saying or actually image on that center piece of Cardstock to make this card your own.   Best part, it is quick and simple.

Enjoy your Day





Cute Santa that comes with the Stampin’ Up!  Cookie Cutter Christmas and coordinating Cookie Cutter Punch.

Super easy to create.

  1. Stamp HO!Ho!Ho! with Real Red Ink from Stampin’UP!s Greeting from Santa onto Whisper White Card Stock (5 1/4 x 4).  Then using your embossing folder, Cable Knit Dynamic, run through Big  Shot but only use one top plate as the embossing folder is much thicker so you get a 3D effect.  Another one of my favorites!
  2. I used Stampin’ UP! Layering Squares Framelits Die to cut out my images. Sizes used were the Scallop 2 3/4 and the square 2 3/8.  Use Real Red Cardstock and just lay one over the other and you can make just one cute.  You’ll have a nice piece of Real Red left over so put with your scraps to use at a later date.  As you can see, the Cable Knit Dynamic embossing is showing through.
  3. Stamp your Santa punch from Stampin’ UP! Cookie Cutter Christmas on a piece of scrap Whisper white Cardstock using either Black Stazon or Memento Ink.  Color in with Real Red and Basic Black Stampin’ Write Markers.  I also used my wink of Stella Clear brush on the trim of his cloths but doesn’t show in photo. Dab a little pink on his cheeks….then punch out with the Cookie Cutter Punch
  4. I attached with dimensionals. Then placed all these pieces on a 8 1/2 x 5 1/4 scored 4 1/4 piece of Real Red Cardstock.

Nice and simple

What a Cute owl…I thought the google eyes were a cute touch.   The stamp set I used is a Hostess Set ‘ Stampin’ UP! Cozy Critters.  Real cute with a Fox also.  I’ll have the link to see the set below.  To earn this set you need to be a Hostess or purchase $15.00 in products.    Best and cheapest way to go is to hostess your own Stampin’ Up! workshop and you the little cuties.  Contact me for available times to schedule your workshop and show your family and friends a good time.   (207)892-7530


  1. Card Base   Real Red Cardstock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 score 4 1/4
  2. Whisper White Card Stock   5 1/4 x 2 1/2
  3. Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper 5 1/4 x 2
  4. Silver Glimmer Paper  5 1/4 x 1/4 and 2
  5. Scraps of Whisper White for the Owl, hat and present.

Hints 1:  I colored the Owl with Stampin’ Write Markers (Real Red and Early Expresso) then stamped on scrap cardstock.   Use the Owl Punch to cut out after you stamp and color in with Crumb Cake.

Hint 2:   The hat was stamped in Real Red and as you can see, I have outlines with Dazzling Details Silver sparkle.  (I punched the hat our with the Jolly Hat Builder Punch before I added the Silver Dazzle)  Go around with a very thin line and set aside to dry completely.  It takes awhile so if you are doing this in a class, I would have your guest/customers do this step first then it should be dry after to complete the rest of the card.

As always, please contact me if you need more details.

Rose Wonder Stamp Set

Love my Peones that bloomed last week so used them as my inspiration for this post.   This Set ‘ Rose Wonder’ comes with thinlets also so you can do the outlines.

My technique was to watercolor the flower and leafs with an aqua painter, then use the thinlet dies to cut my outline for the flower and dies.   Love it!

If you need any directions, please let me know and I’ll send them to you.

The Stamp Set, Rose Wonder, is a must see so go   Rose Wonder Stamp Set and see all the great images and sayings it has.   Really a must have in my book.  You can also see the thinlet dies that coordinates with this set on the same page.

Hope you enjoyed my card today.   I’ll be posting again this upcoming weekend.  I have a scrapbooking class Saturday so will probably post some of those pictures on Sunday.

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget you can   Shop anytime 24/7

Get Well #GDP039

Get Well Floral Affection

This is a card created for Mondays GDP challange.  This week it was for a theme which is as you can see Get Well.   Stampin’ Up! has come out with a new embossing folder  “Floral Affection“.  It has two embossing folder (see below under supplies for images).  I haven’t used any Vellium  Cardstock lately and it is a great technique so I decided that would work great with this embossing folder.   My color choices were from the new Stampin’ UP! In Colors, Emerald Envy and Sweet Sugarplum.  Of course, there are so many color choices that would also be great on this card.    See what colors you could come up with.

Directions for card

  1. Cut a piece of Whisper White Card Stock ( 8 1/2 x 11) in half and fold.  This is your card base.
  2. Cut a piece of Emerald Envy Card Stock, 4 x 5 1/4 and run though your Big Shop using the Fluttering Embossing Folder
  3. Next, I cut a 6″ piece of the New Sweet Sugarplum Ribbon.  Adhere to the Emerald Envy Cardstock you just finished.  I find it easier to put a little mono adhesive in center of ribbon, attach to the embossed side in the center, then wrap around the edges and attach on back with more mono adhesive.   Now attached this piece to your White Base.
  4. Cut a piece of Vellium Cardstock,  2 3/4 x 3 1/4.  Center in the Floral Affection Embossing Folder and run through your Big Shot.   On the embossed side of the Vellium, I stamped my Get Well Image, Thoughts and Prayers Stamp Set, using the Sweet Sugarplum ink pad
  5. Now turn your Vellium Embossed Cardstock over to the back side , using Stampin’ UP!  In Color Markers, color the flowers and leaves with Emerald Envy and Sugarplum.
  6. I then cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock the same size 2 3/4 x 3 1/4 and using Tombow Glue attached the vellum to the White.  Cut a piece of Emerald Green (3 x 3 1/2) and layered those of the Green.  Now attach to your card with either dimensional or mono adhesive

Hint:    When I am using Vellium CardStock, I make sure that I only but my adhesive (I like the Tombow Glue for this) behind a colored design.  If you use adhesive right on the clear vellium, it will show through and you’ll have little spots.

Sitting Here

One of the new Stamps from Stampin’ Up! that will be available on June 1st.   Love this set ‘ Sitting Here‘and there are a lot more pieces.  There is also a cat, vase  of flowers, bird and more words.  I can not share the entire set until the catalog is released on June 1st.  One of the perks of being a Stampin’ UP! demonstrator is that you get to pre-order some of the new supplies/stamp sets.

So for this card, I ordered this Stamp Set, Sitting Here, plus some new in colors.  the ones I used on this card were Dapper Denim and Sweet Sugarplum  I cut out the swing, which actually comes with ropes to swing on, but I liked it as a bench.  I used dimensional so it looks like it is setting in the grass.   For the dog bed and the dog, I did some masking which I will show you later on in the week when I can post the Stamp Set and other elements to it.

Hope you had a great weekend holiday.  I sure did!    Pooped so as soon as I’m done with this post, I think I’ll just go relax and watch some TV.

I’ll try get the stamp set and all other supplies posted by Friday.  I am having some minor surgery on Wednesday but should be all recovered by Friday.  So please check back on Friday and see my updates.

Sorry just getting around to updates  Here’s the stamp set  “Sitting Here” in Stampin’ Up!s New Catalog show on the side
