Hello Dear Friend

 I was so excited to get a few new items for my collection these past few months. But at one point I had ordered a Hello Dear Friend card kit, and this beautiful paper but forgot to add the Art Gallery stamps and dies to my order. I couldn't wait to start designing cards with this sweet paper so I used some elements from the kit to play around with some Z fold cards while I waited for those matching stamps to arrive...and these have been sitting in my stash of cards ever since, just waiting for me to grab some images and share them with you here. Do you love flowers and beautiful blooms? You're probably going to be seeing them here for a few weeks because I haven't had a chance to even use the other supplies in my new card kit, and this might be a shocker to some but I have even more flowery goodness in my Stampin' Up! shopping cart. Well if you're here you've probably stopped by to see my cards so here they are:



Isn't this Double Z Fold fun? I added space to the back to write a personal note:

Retro Stamps and a 2 Sheet Wonder

 I have been following Chelsey Christiansen's (Creative Chelsey) online class using this layouts for this set of cards. I love this vintage looking retired stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Petal Palette. These are cards #3 and #4. Two pieces of 12x12 coordinating scrapbook papers make 11 cards. This was a fun way to use up some retired papers that have been sitting in my stash. Next week I'll post the final two!

Retro Stamps

Today's cards used a pattern from a 2 Sheet Wonder I found on Creative Chelsey's blog. These are cards using the patterns #1 & #2. I used a retired stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Petal Pallette and the coordinating dies. The paper is also retired SU. One of these cards is a general "Thinking of You" and the other is a Sympathy card. Both of these cards will be in my shop at Just a Little Craft Store in Palmer. The Grand Opening is May 6th and I'm so excited!

Hippobirthday 2 Ewe!

 Today I'm sharing a fun birthday card featuring a stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Hippo Happiness. It was designed by a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and I think it's super cute. I have made so many fun cards with these adorable animals and matching dies.

Farmhouse Chic


Today I am playing along with Stamp Ink Paper's Farmhouse Chic challenge. For this card I used a combination of retired and current Stampin' Up! products.

Among the retired items are the DSP, seam binding in Pear Pizzazz, and the small tag from Chalk Talk Framelits.

I stamped the tag with Wisteria Wonder ink, embossed the bird with white and sponged more Wisteria ink over the tag. The remaining dies and cuts came from the Petal Palette Bundle.
This week's challenge was to be inspired by the above photo. You can see the links to other entries  by clicking on this link to the Stamp Ink Paper blog.  If you stopped by today please leave a little love on my photo!

Coloring Challenges


Hi Stampers! It's a rainy dreary day here, but I am adding a little sunshine to my corner of the word with this happy card. I dug out an older stamp set today for my verse. After taking some time off from my blog and stamping, I have spend the past few months with my stamping friends revisiting my favorite creative outlet and I am slowly adding to my stash of stamps and paper supplies. With my primary focus having been the paper and dies in recent months.

For this card I used some paper from the Stampin' Up! Petal Passion pack and colored in the flowers using my markers in Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Powder Pink. The base was done using Berry Burst cardstock, and I added a little softness with a little Sweet Sugarplum ribbon from my stash. I love this soft color, but it will be gone soon so I have stocked up on the ink refill, cardstock and ribbons.

I am linking this card to two challenges this week, the SUO Challenges blog, since I used only Stampin' Up products and Stamp Ink Paper's Color It Challenge. This week's challenge is coloring. The design team has posted a couple of pretty sweet cards on their blog, so head on over and take a look at their amazing creations.

If you stopped by to visit or peek at my card today, please leave a little love in the comments section. Enjoy your Sunday!
