Anniversary/Love/Valentine's/Wedding, Handmade Cards

Elegantly Said and Evening Evergreen IN Color Anniversay Card

Another card that is going out almost as soon as it is made are my anniversary ones. I really like the Simply Elegant Suite, especially the paper, but when it is paired with Evening Evergreen… WOW! This combination is really eye catching in person.

This card is more complex then normal simply because of the need to line up the stamp so that it fits neatly on the Basic White cardstock. There used to be a tool by Stampin’ Up! called a Stamp-a-ma-jig (if i remember correctly) that was a positioning tool, an absolute must if you are a wooden block puriest. That would have worked well for this situation. As it was this card was eye-balled next time my stamp-a-ratus will definately come out to make a mass stamping.

Simple stamping is the name of the game on this card but if you look closely there is a hand cut decorative edge that allows a peak of IN Color designer series paper. It may be hard to see but there is serious bling here on each of the main swirls.

You’re Just Like Chocolate Card


If you are like me you really do believe chocolate makes everything better, definately sweeter! This card just begs to be given to the one friend who no matter what makes everything better and with World Cardmaking Day just around the corner on October 3rd you can make this card to send.

How to make this card:

  1. Start by trimming a sheet of Whisper White in half with a Paper Trimer. Fold the half sheet in half again and burnish the crease with a Bone Folder. This is your card base.
  2. Trim a piece of 2020-22 In Color 6×6 in Cinnamon Cider (ooh that name just screams fall- where is my apple cider?!) to 4×5 1/4. Adhere to the base with Stampin’ Seal.
  3. Cut a piece of Whisper White to 3×4 for the sentiment. Stamp the sentiment in Cinnamon Cider ink.
  4. Apply a strip of Adhesive Sheet to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock. Crop with the “Chocolate” die from the Love You More Dies. Bend the cropped word to create the curve and press onto the Whisper White cardstock.
  5. Adhere the Whisper White sentiment to the base with Stampin’ Seal.
  6. On scrap Whisper White stamp 3 sets of chocolate outlines in Early Espresso ink. Using the coloring stamp fill in the chocolates with Cinnamon Cider. Add dimension to the chocolates with Dark Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends. Crop with the Love You More dies and adhere to the card in layers with Stampin’ Seal.
  7. Stamp the inside of the card and envelope with more chocolates as described above.
  8. Add some bling with Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
  9. Most importantly give this beauty to someone!

Handmade Cards

Lifting Spirits


Many of you may not know but my husband’s aunt, uncle and grandma live in Panama City Florida. They were directly impacted by Hurricane Michael.  This card was made in hopes of sending some small amount of solace. 

Start with a base layer of Blueberry Bushel Cardstock (146968). Add a layer of 2018-2020 Designer Series paper (146963). Using Blueberry Bushel Ink (147138) stamp the hot air balloons and clouds from the Lift Me Up Stamp Set (142896) on to Whisper White Cardstock (100730). Color in the hot air balloons with Stampin’ Write Markers in Call Me Clover (147159) and Crushed Curry (147155). Die cut the images with Up & Away Thinlets (142748) and adhere with Stampin’ dimensionals (104430).
