Lovely & Lacy and Sweet Essentials stamp sets

Shop Online 24/7 for Stampin’ Up! Supplies

Sometimes we need to make a card, but are short on stamping time. I think this card will fill the bill! Not only is it cute, but there is minimal stamping involved. I originally thought I would make it with the Stampin’ Up! A Round Array set. Then I saw this Lovely & Lacy set and realized I have never used it, so this card was created. . .minimal stamping, clean and simple lines, and  from start to finish very quick to make.   I hope you might consider this card when you are pressed for time and need something handmade.    Happy Stampin!

This card was designed by my mother, Edna, I really like how she has combined three different Stampin’ Up! stamp sets to make this spectacular card.  I do so enjoy watching her creative process. She just keeps pulling out framelits, punches, rhinestones, a variety of stamp sets and designer papers, then adds and subtract various elements until she is pleased with the overall look. I am pleased to include her as a guest designer for my blog. I am sure she will be contributing more soon.   Happy Stampin!

Best of Flowers and Papaya Collage Stamp Sets with Sneak Peek of 2013-2015 In Colors

Shop Online 24/7 for Stampin’ Up! Supplies

I think the new Best of 25 Years Stamps are such a great idea. As part of Stampin’ Up!’s 25-year anniversary they are bringing back some of the favorite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into 12 sets. They will be released – one set per month – during 2013. Even better, along with some great classic images, each “Best of” set will also include a never-before-seen-image! As a special incentive to collect the Best of stamps, a collector’s card and a 25-year proof of purchase sticker is included with every Best of set. When you collect six stickers you will be eligible for a FREE set of your choice valued up to $14.95.

I made this card using the March 2013 Best of Flowers set. I’ve also used several of the new colors and the Gingham Garden DSP. I am happy to say that only seven days remain until the new catalog is live and we can order from it.  Happy Stampin!
