Eden’s Garden and FREE Offer!

The Eden’s Garden bundle was a pre-release product offered the end of last year. I had ordered the bundle and the beautiful DSP, but with moving and then the holidays approaching, did not have an opportunity to work with these products until recently. The bundle is offered in the NEW January – June 2022 Mini Catalog on page 41. Unfortunately, the BEAUTIFUL DSP offered last fall is no longer available to purchase. Fortunately, I can offer six (6) lucky customers the opportunity to earn a sampling of this DSP for FREE, just purchase the bundle from me! I will send you two (2) pieces (6×6 size) of each of the six different patterns, so a total of 12 (6×6) pieces. This DSP has beautiful green tones along with gold foil accents. Here’s the card I designed recently:

I incorporated several other great products that coordinate beautifully with this bundle. The Stitched Greenery die made the perfect backdrop for the layered greeting (Evening Evergreen die cut is from Tasteful Touches dies and the white stitched die cut is from the Hippo & Friends dies). The floral image was stamped in Soft Succulent and then the “Sending Hugs” was stamped on top in Evening Evergreen. A gold foil die cut was placed between these two layers and the “Leafy Border” die placed at the edge of the “Stitched Greenery” panel and the strip of DSP. Finished off this card with Soft Succulent 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon and if you look closely, three (3) Gold Metallic Pearls.

Happy New Year!

Here’s wishing everyone a very Happy New Year! 2021 was full of several changes for my husband and I with the most significant being our move from Maryland to Texas. Once we were settled in our new home, the holidays were upon us. Between the holidays and a few minor computer issues, I really got behind the 8-ball with posting to my website. Hopefully, in 2022 I will get myself back on track with regular postings!

Here was one of my two Christmas cards for this year. I used the Christmas Season bundle from the July-December Mini catalog and a patterned paper from the Painted Christmas DSP. The greeting came from the Encircled in Warmth stamp set. I also utilized the Pine Spray from the Wintry 3D embossing folders, a die from Hippo and Friends, Real Red Sheer Ribbon and for a touch of bling, a small strip of the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper from Stampin’ Up!’s previous SALE a-bration promotion.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Taking a few moments on this Thanksgiving to wish everyone a fabulous holiday with family and friends!

I’ve been MIA for several weeks as we have recently relocated to Texas! My husband was fortunate enough to retire in early October. We spent September getting our house packed and ready for the move. After more than 20+ years as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, my Craft Room needed a huge purge before packing everything up. What an undertaking that task was! We grossly under estimated the amount of “stuff” to load on the moving truck and had to rent a small enclosed trailer for the last household remnants. My hubby had the privilege of driving the moving truck, towing the trailer across county while I followed in the SUV. It was about 24 hours of driving, basically three days. Once we arrived at our new home in Texas, even more work was waiting for us. After unloading the moving truck (with some hired help), there was carpet to remove and painting to be done. We made great progress each day with the unpacking and thank goodness are are settled in as I type this post. Without a doubt, moving is EXHAUSTING!

I am hoping to be back on track with posting to my blog more regularly. I’m sharing a card that both of my clubs recently completed.

Holiday card featuring Words of Cheer bundle

This card features the Words of Cheer bundle, the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder and the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I looped some gold cord behind the focal image and used Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots in Gold for the flower centers. Stampin’ Blends were used to color the lovely floral spray. Simple card, but very stunning in person!
