Let’s Splurge-Cool Treats

Let’s Splurge-Cool Treats

As I said a few days ago, I have another fun Cool Treats card to share with you.  I’ve had a ball with this set.  Make sure to see the other card I created HERE.

My favorite part of this suite is the Tasty Treats Designer Series Paper.  The images on this paper are so so FUN!!

Let’s Splurge with a Big Bowl of Ice Cream

Let's Splurge, Cool Treats, Stampin' Up!


I love ice cream, a lot! I try not to keep much ice cream in the house because I would eat it up every day.  If I’m going to have ice cream… I’m going to have a big bowl.  Creating this card reminded me of the big bowl that I make at home.  So delicious.

Again, I love how the paper coordinates with the stamp images.  It’s perfect.


Let's Splurge, Cool Treats, Stampin' Up!



Tips & Tricks

  • I die cut a square from the Stitched Framelits using Watercolor Paper.  I used the following ink colors to watercolor: Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, and Calypso Coral.  Reminds me of a big bowl of sherbert.  YUMMY!!
  • The Kraft cardstock was perfect to die cut the bowl for the ice cream.
  • Silver (or Gold) Foil Paper is perfect to die cut the spoon.
  • The sprinkles on the ice cream were created using White Craft Ink.

No bowl of ice cream is complete without a cherry on top.  Okay, that’s sorta not true for me. I’m not a fan of those cherries.  Blech.

Another Road Trip

I arrived in Savannah, GA tonight and I’m ready for the big Stampin’ Up! OnStage event this weekend.  The best part is spending stamping time with my best friends.

I’ll be filling you in with the news I can share on my Facebook Page.  Click the link to keep informed.

Meanwhile, have a great weekend and stamp something pretty.  XOXO

Sweet Little Popsicles from Cool Treats

Sweet Little Popsicles from Tasty Treats

I can barely contain my excitement as I sit down to write. It’s been forever since I posted something pretty! No blogging is what happens when you spend more time in a car than your actual stamping space.  I’ll catch you up to speed on what’s been going on here, and I have a fun card using the Cool Treats Photopolymer Bundle from Stampin’ Up!

In a span of two weeks, I’ve traveled 2200 miles back and forth across Florida for spring break with the family as well as a State Gymnastics meet for Alexis.  WHOA!  I have one more road trip this week, and then I am praying for some normalcy in my household.


Sweet Little Popsicles

After being gone for so long, I had a pile of stamps needing attention.  There is nothing like going from zero stamping to creating about 18 pretties in one day.  Yes, true story.  I spent about 12 hours in my stamp room yesterday stamping like a crazy woman.  I had 15 projects to create for a Stampin’ Up!  event I’m attending in Savannah, GA this weekend as well as a few other projects.

After creating projects that had a deadline, it was nice to reset my brain and just create something for fun.  It also looks rather tasty! Sweet Little Popsicles.

Tasty Treats, Stampin' Up!


I’ve used this set several different times, and each time I do, I grow more and more fond of the images and die cuts.  This card especially made me want to hunt down the ice cream truck to grab one of these delicious popsicles.  Can you imagine the visual? Me… running down the street chasing the ice cream truck. Ha ha ha… oh dear.  This makes me laugh!


Tasty Treats, Stampin' Up!


Tips & Tricks

Here are a few of my favorite things about this card.

  • A simple watercolored background using Sahara Sand Ink and Aqua Painter makes the popsicles stand out on this card.  I added a little-splattered ink using Early Espresso ink.
  • The coordinating pattern paper of popsicles makes this card even more delicious.  Make sure to grab the Tasty Treats Designer Series Paper before the end of the Occasions Catalog, May 31st.  It’s the perfect paper for spring/summer projects.
  • One of my favorite additions to this card is the scalloped edge behind the watercolor paper.  This scallop edge was created using the Cutie Pie Thinlits.  *LOVE THIS!*
  • Lastly, the Cool Treats stamp set has great greetings and fonts.  I love the simple and tiny fonts on this special greeting.  I created a 1/2″ banner to go across the popsicles using Pool Party cardstock and Early Espresso Ink.

What’s Your Favorite Cool Treat?

After a few weeks of being on the road and too many dole whips, Dairy Queen stops… honestly, I think I could stand not to have any more cold treats.  What is your favorite cold treat?

I have another card I’ll be sharing using this set soon.  The Cool Treats stamp set has so many opportunities to use and especially with the change of seasons coming up.



Tasty Treats, Stampin' Up!


Like I said in the beginning, I hope to be back to my normal blogging schedule and spending less time in my car. Not being able to stamp has been a BIG fat bummer.  Although I’ve had a blast with my kids, mama needs some stamping fun.

Let’s Celebrate Big

Let’s Celebrate Big

The phrase in our house is “go big” or step aside…

This pertains to everything.  I chuckled when I pulled out my new stamp bundle, Biggest Birthday Ever.

It’s BIG.  It’s all about celebrating and I can’t wait to share two cards I created using it.


Biggest Ice Cream Ever!

Celebrate Big, Biggest Birthday Ever, Stampin' Up!


I thought we would start with one of my favorite things, ice cream.

If you are looking to create a few simple birthday or celebration cards,  the Biggest Birthday Ever stamp set paired with the Wish Big Framelits is ideal.

Celebrate Big, Biggest Birthday Ever, Stampin' Up!



You will  notice there are no greetings in this stamp set, which gives you plenty of options to add from your stash of celebration or birthday greetings you have.

Celebrate Big, Biggest Birthday Ever, Stampin' Up!


I used the Sweet Stack stamp set for the greeting.  Sweet and ice cream was a perfect combination.  I love the size of the “scoops” and I love that you can create them in ANY color you wish using inks or the framelits.


Celebrate Big, Biggest Birthday Ever, Stampin' Up!


The Flirty Flamingo was my main color focus for this card.  I added a splash of Blush Blossom, Soft Suede and Early Espresso inks and cardstocks to compliment the card.  I love how you can add a simple embellishment such as the Enamel Dots for a little extra happiness to the card.


Celebrate Big, Biggest Birthday Ever, Stampin' Up!


Be the Queen


One of the images that I love in this set is the tiara.

If I can’t wear one around my house on a daily basis (which I feel like I should) I can create one.  Then I can frame it and look at it every day.

Another simple card with a few cardstock layers using Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo, Basic Black and Blush Blossom.

Celebrate Big, Biggest Birthday Ever, Stampin' Up!


I used the Playful Backgrounds stamp set to add the fun circle background in Flirty Flamingo.


Celebrate Big, Biggest Birthday Ever, Stampin' Up!


The greeting was from the Sunshine Sayings-my favorite greeting set right now.

One Last Thing… 

I’m completely humbled from your response to my last post.  I’ve read all of your emails and comments and I’ll be responding to them today and through the weekend.  I know the issue is one that hits home for so many.  I’ve loved LOVED hearing from you and thank you for reading and responding.  XOXOXO




What’s Your Flavor?

Do you have a favorite flavor??

Flavor… Do you have a favorite even when the temperatures outside are too cold for ice cream??


I’d have to say YES.  Even when it’s cold outside I can go for a big ole bowl of ice cream in just about any flavor.


What about YOU?


Flavor, Honeycomb Happiness stamp set, Stampin' Up!


Honeycomb Happiness

Flavor, Honeycomb Happiness stamp set, Stampin' Up!


Honeycomb Happiness stamp set is filled with cute images and my I have to say all of the images are lovable.  I had to turn this ONE scoop of ice cream into a triple decker though.


Let’s face it, I have NO willpower right now for a single scoop.  I say bring on the flavors.


Flavor, Honeycomb Happiness stamp set, Stampin' Up!

The exciting part of creating this card was Russ coming in to help me.  YES! Russ!

He came into my stamp room as I was fussy cutting the “chocolate” scoop and made a terrible face.  He says… “Chocolate? No strawberry? Ice!”

So I put him to work.  I told him he had to find the strawberry ice cream in my sea of cardstock and choose the one he felt was the closest to strawberry.  I think he did a pretty good job and chose Pink Pirouette.  I had to add a little Vanilla to the mix too.


Surprise & Delight

This card has a little surprise and delight with it.  I created a mini card using the Banners Framelits.  By simply cutting a 2 3/4 x 11 piece of Corrugated Cardstock I folded it in half and then only cut the bottom piece to create the banner.  Once die cut I embellished the top.  I love that this card has a fun interactive piece on the front of it.

Flavor, Honeycomb Happiness stamp set, Stampin' Up!

I stamped a simple Thank You greeting from the Rose Wonder stamp set inside the banner.  I love how this turned out.  Sweet and simple.

You could even fit a gift card on the inside of this banner. Simply use a few glue dots to keep it in place.

Flavor, Honeycomb Happiness stamp set, Stampin' Up!


So ice cream lovers… what is your favorite flavor? If it’s too cold for you to eat the ice cream remember you can create plenty of paper ice cream cones using the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set.  This is a FREE Sale-a-Bration stamp set and it’s OH SO CUTE.

Oh No! Did You Do This?

Hey friends, before I go I have a quick thing I want to tell you about.

I LOVE when you place orders through my store. I’m always humbled when I see that you have chosen me as your demonstrator.  BUT there is a small problem that makes my heart heavy every time an order comes through as a NO CONTACT.  Many times this is done without you knowing and there is no way for me to know WHO it is.

Why is this frustrating? If you come through my system as a customer who placed an order and it comes through as a No Contact….. that means I see that there is an order placed but I have no clue WHO placed that order.  It’s “top secret!”

This becomes a problem for a few reasons.  If your order qualifies for rewards, I have no way of knowing that you should receive the rewards.  I have no way of being able to send you a thank you card or a gift for choosing me as your demonstrator.  Most importantly, if you have a problem with your order I have no way of knowing making it harder for me to fix the problem.

When placing an order in my Online Store, make sure to check your account information that you have opted for me to contact you.  Please know that I do not send you junk mail.  I only send you information based on the rewards levels that you reach with me.

See this photo below to help assist you when placing an order.

Online Order

If the box is checked “NO” I will never know that you ordered.  I want to make sure that if you order you are receiving my rewards and tutorials that you can get for free when choosing me as your demonstrator. If you have questions, please let me know so I can help you.  YOU are important to me and I am grateful for your business.  I don’t want that to go unseen.  XOXOXO


Know that as a customer of mine you are LOVED.  I truly love serving you and being your demonstrator.  XO
