Serene Silhouettes sympathy card

I saw this card layout idea online and thought it'd be great for a sympathy card. The thing is, it's easy (with 3 punches), makes great use of designer paper (who doesn't have a lot of that hanging around?), and it's quick. The butterfly/floral image is from the Serene Silhouettes stamp set.

This sentiment is from the Petite Pairs stamp set. This card is Sahara Sand, Basic Black and Whisper White card stocks. I can't wait to use this design for more cards. Sweet!

I Like You birthday greetings

The Stampin' Up! year is rapidly winding down so there's just over a month to earn this floral set, called I Like You.

This color combo is unusual for me - Pink Pirouette and Calypso Coral. I've added a spiral border-punched layer of Typeset specialty designer paper, and stamped the floral image on top in black ink, adding the sentiment from Remembering Your Birthday on the card front.

Retiring accessories are selling out daily, so if there's something you have to have, be sure to order it via my Online Store at You may add any retiring stamps, Clearance Rack, regular catalog and Occasions Catalog items too.

That's the Ticket birthday card

Okay, so the first thing I notice is that I need to re-ink my black pad. But you get the idea.

I started with a Whisper White card, then added a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Basic Black card stock before adding a 5" x 3-3/4" piece of Back to Black designer series paper. There's a knot of black taffeta, with the birthday stamp from That's the Ticket stamp set punched out with the ticket punch and adhered with dimensionals. This card was CASE'd from Julie Pitta

Good & bad news about butterfly thinlits

Update on Butterflies Thinlits and a Special Offer!                
Like you, we sincerely hoped that the Butterflies Thinlits Dies would arrive in time for Sale-A-Bration, and when that didn't happen, we hoped they would be here in time for our Free Shipping promotion. Unfortunately, that is not going to be the case.

Originally they were scheduled to arrive by April 8; we then received notification from our supplier that although the ship had reached the west coast port, the container containing the Thinlits was still on the ship. We have since received verification from a third party that the vessel is still in the port--and though it docked on Friday, April 3, the container with the Thinlits has yet to be pulled.

Because the container has yet to be discharged from the vessel, the soonest the Butterflies Thinlits will arrive in our warehouse is the beginning of the week of April 13; our best estimate for orderability, based on this information, is April 15.

We realize you and your customers may be disappointed you were not able to purchase the Thinlits in time to receive Sale-A-Bration rewards--especially in the discounted bundles. Therefore, from the day Butterflies Thinlits are again available through April 30, we are bringing you two special offers:

  1. Get the Butterflies Thinlits at a 15 percent discount--just $21.20!
  2. Buy any of the Butterflies Thinlits Bundles at the already-discounted price and choose one of three FREE Sale-A-Bration items (only available while supplies last)!
So all is not lost. And when you go to order, please use my Online Store link - Thanks!

Butterfly Basics sympathy card

I've had requests from my customers for sympathy cards. It's unfortunate we need them as often as we do, but nice when it's handmade and ready to send. This is a 

This Crumb Cake card has the same flower stamp from Butterfly Basics stamped in Jet Black StazOn along the bottom as is on the tag (which used the angled tag topper punch). The sentiment is from the Love and Sympathy stamp set. This card was CASE'd, though with different colors and stamp set.

I like your face!

This card makes me smile. How often (if ever) have you received a card saying, "I LIKE YOUR FACE!"

The Crumb Cake card was embossed with the Alphabet Press embossing folder, with a layer of Best Year Ever dsp. The bear, from Cheerful Critters in the Occasions Catalog, was stamped in Jet Black StazOn and colored with markers. I added a Crushed Curry banner and a button from the Best Year Ever accessory pack with a knot of linen thread.
Sadly, our Sale-a-Bration Event ended yesterday. *sigh* I've really been enjoying using the stamps, paper and other accessories offered in that catalog. But never fear... more new things are forever heading our way!
