Sale a bration – Fresh Vintage Stamp

Sale a bration, which I refer to as celebration is a great time for stamper’s to purchase Stampin Up products. This year is no exception opps it is an exceptional year as Stampin Up have also included Designer Series Papers and Ribbons and Brads to the collection.

For this card I have used both Fresh Vintage Stamp Set, 125117 and the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Papers.  I used Crumb Cake as the basis for my card, trimmings Calypso Coral and the beautiful Velvet Ribbon.  The Velvet Ribbon is in the Mini Catalogue.

Enjoy and good night, or in my case, good morning, its 4 am and I should be in B E D

Set Sail to the Open Sea

The Open Sea is one of the best male stamps that Stamping up have ever made, for me its a keeper.

The stamp set is No 123032 and its on $39.05 for the clear stamps.  I used Not Quite Navy, Crumb Cake and Vanila Cardstock and Inks as well as Versa Mark.  the other stamp set that i used was the Perfectly Penned, No 122892 in the clear mount for only $25.95, what a bargain and you get 4 stamps in the set.  I have used the Happy Birthday, as I get lots of requests for Male Birthday Cards at my Markets.

This card was inspired again by Teneale Williams, who had made it in a class, but hey she is such a great up-line that she is happy helping her team.

I am making this card on friday the 17 Feb 2012 time 10am, at the Creative Spirit Centre.  If you would like to attend.  Please check out their website at


Beautiful Butterflies

Butterflies, oldie stamp set that i just couldn’t part if as I watched my little grand-daughter do such a great job of making a card for her mum. No she didn’t use the squares, she did however do a great job and it made me want to keep it in my stash. Have to say my stash is growing at an alarming rate. You could however use the gorgeous butterfly that comes in the “Creative Elements” stamp set. The number of this set is 122647 and the price is $49.95 plus postage. Email me if you would like to purchase it.

Can you see the endless possibilities with this stamp set and my square punches.   I promise this is my last red card, so don’t forget to drop by again, I promise to put date more regular.

Better go, need to book for conference………….yeah so excited to be going again this year.

For You

I used my favourite Stamp Set, “Creative Elements” for this card in Real Red, again it was in my selection that could be used for Valentines Day, but not limited to Valentines Day.

I have to say I love the impression that this stamp set makes and punching it out with both the 1 1/4 punch than mounting on a piece punch out with the 1 3/8 punch is so easy and effective.

Valentine Day

Valentine’s Day Need for Speed

Well, I definitely didn’t have the need for speed, have it as its Valentines day today.

I have a number of cards that could be used for Valentine’s day, but could also be used for other occasions, so thought i would post them here for you all.

Now for the very first time every my husband gave me a Valentine’s Card, it was made by and as you know she is my daughter.  It was very sweet of her to help her dad.  He had labelled the envelope, “to the girl of my dreams” now how cute is that?  If that wasn’t enough he put inside it that he loves me more now after 40 something years then he did on day 1.

Now how cute is that.  thought i had best get a card to him…………mmmmm what do give then I thought of this one, what do you think?
