Great New Punch

I love new punches! They are pretty much the staple of my stamping room. If you are going to spend money, spend it on a punch.

In the new Occasions Mini, there’s a new flower punch called the Blossom Punch. There’s also a great stamp set that goes along with it called Mixed Bunch. Can’t go wrong when there’s a stamp to match a punch.

Birthday Card

This week I’ll be posting just about every day.  I saved up a bunch of cards to show my customers at my Open House yesterday. I wanted them to see new stuff, so now I can post them!

This card below is the card we will be doing Friday night in class. There is still room so go to the Workshops page and sign up!  We will be making 3 of these and there is a Valentine’s verse that goes with it so if you don’t have a Valentine’s card for that special person, you can come and make one!

Card Components:

Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Pink P. ( I can’t spell pirouette), Early Espresso

Stampset: Sweetcake


I have some Valentine’s Day items that didn’t sell from the Open House. Here are pictures of them. Contact me if you are interested:

These are $2.75 plus shipping

These are smaller than they look, they have 2 Hershey’s Kisses in them, $.50 each

Monster Valentine

I’m back on the Valentine’s Day kick!!!  I just couldn’t resist this one. I was inspired by this card on It’s A Stamp Thing. So cute!

I used DSP Play Date & DSP Pretty In Pink. Make A Monster and a verse from an old Valentine’s set that I can’t think of now. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday

Pinterest is my new big thing lately.  It’s so easy to just pin card samples from the net that I love. I saw this card by Heidi Boss that   was pinned by Nancy Riley (which I follow her blog as well) and thought it was such a great quick and easy generic card. Check out Pinterest, you’ll love it too!

I know it’s early, but I’m doing a craft show in March and I’m thinking about a cute little Easter treat I can have at the fair. These are super easy little candy holders. They are made out of 3 x 3 envelopes! Use your oval punches, a few circle punches and a puffy nose and you are good to go!

Great Card for Teenager

Had to back off the Valentine’s cards for a bit. I start to get a little loopy if I keep doing the same stuff all the time!

For this card, I was inspired by Stampin’ Anne’s design here. I added some glitter on the back ground, but it still can be used for a boy teen as well.  I have a few family members who play guitar so this card won’t be around my stash too long! As you can see, they are slightly different from each other as well. The stamp sets I used were Grunge Rock and Extreme Elements. The card stock is Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight, DSP is Big Top Birthday.

Bordering on Romance

This is a very simple card. Very easy to do. The set is Bordering on Romance from the new Occasions Mini.  I used two of the other accessories from the mini as well to do the border, but I don’t have the mini with me and downloading the catalog will take too long on this connection.  I did cut out the flowers and pop them up to give it a great affect.
