Father’s Day Card using Look Up to Father

JenniferCards, Masculine0 Comments

Look up to Father is one of those stamps that when I saw it in the Occasions Catalog, I knew I just HAD-TO-HAVE it!  I loved the sentiment (“A Father is someone to look up to no matter how tall you’ve grown”) and knew I wanted to make a card for my Dad with it.  So, I got it in one of my very first orders, and promptly mounted it and put it on my shelf… where it sat for a long time.  So, now is my first time inking it up and I LOVE it! I created this card … Read More

JenniferCards, Christmas, Decor, Specials & Deals0 Comments

Woo hoo!  Today is the day that I’m heading to Utah for Founder’s Circle and I don’t think I could be any more excited!  5 days to relax, stamp, explore, and socialize with some amazing stampers and demonstrators – what could be a better vacation?  I’ll be blogging from my trip in Utah as well as offering a Founder Circle special while I’m away!  So, be sure to stop back by the blog to catch all the excitement. But, while I’m traveling, I wanted to make sure to share with you some new project ideas using the Christmas Star holiday … Read More

Stamping with an Embossing Folder for a Scrapbook Sketch

JenniferScrapbooking2 Comments

Happy Monday!  Today over at the Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration blog, we are sharing a fun scrapbook sketch idea.  I didn’t create the sketch, but let me tell you how much I LOVE designing off of sketches.  It makes the scrapbooking process so much easier for me because I don’t have to think too hard about the set-up of the page (or card!) and instead can focus on things like which color do I want to use and what should I write in my journaling.   Oh, and did I mention that my layouts are typically like my cards…. I start … Read More

Fun & Easy Birthday Card with Banner Greetings

JenniferBirthday, Cards0 Comments

What do you think of when you see a stamp set that is full of stamp images that look like flags?  Well, I imagined banners, but don’t ask me why, but I never thought to make little flags with it.  But, thank goodness for other creative stampers out there! My mom created this card and when I saw it, I thought it was a brilliant way to use these stamps! She stamped the Happy Birthday image twice (once in Island Indigo and once in Tangerine Tango) and then cut them out and attached them to the ends of toothpicks.  Voila!  … Read More

Pair Up Those Punches!

When they announced the Color Refresh and told us that 10 colors were going to be retiring, I looked at the list and was a little sad but overall thought that I didn’t use the colors that much and so I wasn’t going to miss them too much. Well, then I decide to pull out the colors and make a card with them…. who knew they were so cute together!?! Colors used:  Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, River Rock, Bashful Blue, Pretty In Pink Colors used: Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, More Mustard, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy These are my … Read More

Another Print Poetry Idea

JenniferCards, My Classes/Events0 Comments

Today is the LAST DAY to RSVP for our Print Poetry stamp camp or sign up for a kit in the mail.  So, I thought I’d share one of the cards we created as an idea for the event but ultimately didn’t make the cut for the class this time (though I know I’ll be using the design in the future!) This uses the Lacy and Lovely stamp set plus the Print Poetry designer paper and notecards & envelope set.  It is super fast to make and cute to boot! One tip for this card is that for the doily … Read More

It’s the first Thursday of the month and that means the Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad blog hop.  I lucked out because this month the theme is Easter/Spring and I just so happen to have my Everything Easter class coming up this weekend on Sunday! So I thought I would share some of the projects we’ll be doing in the class and give you some inspiration for what you could do for your own Easter baskets!   Not-so-tiny Treat Pouch! I had been looking at some past projects and saw some old treat pouches that were made with a Big Shot die … Read More

A Little Bit Of Love…and Scallops and Pearls

JenniferCards0 Comments

I hope you don’t mind one more Cross My Heart card sample.  I know, I’ve been using it a lot this week, but that is just because I went on a creating spree with the set and most of the cards I have photographed right now use it.  But hopefully by now you can see some fun ways to use it!  I have to admit, it was fun to take images from the same set and try to create totally different looking cards.  You should try it some time! Anyway, here is today’s card: So, this all started with me … Read More

Cross My Heart Faux Stitched Love Card

JenniferCards0 Comments

Do you have a stamp set that you loved…bought… and now have no idea what to do with it? Being a word puzzle person, I love these stamp sets that are word search/crossword designs.  I even bought the word search background stamp years ago.  But did I ever figure out how to use it?  Nope! Well, my mom got the new Cross My Heart stamp set and while I thought it was really cool, I had no idea how you would use it.  So, I stamped a few images and have been making myself play with it.  Turns out, it … Read More

It’s the Styling Stampin’ Squad January Blog Hop!

JenniferBirthday, Cards8 Comments

Alright, this is my second month with the crew of talented stampers and this month we are sharing project ideas using items from the new Spring catalog and Sale-a-Bration items.  Because who doesn’t like fun ideas with new stuff? Well, I have a couple quick projects for you and I hope they inspire some new ideas for you.  First up is a little card… I call it a calling card because it is actually significantly smaller than a standard card front.  I made these to send with some spring catalogs and SAB catalogs I was mailing out.  Something quick, cute, … Read More

The Spring Catalog is Here & with Product Shares!

JenniferCards, Product Shares0 Comments

Are you ready for Spring yet?  I am still wishing for snow since we didn’t get any this year in my town… but at the same time, I am so ready to start looking at pretty new papers and the ideas of warmer days and new green growth!  So to fill that desire creatively, I’ve gotten to play with some super cute new items from the Spring Catalog! I will admit, my surprising favorites so far are the honeycomb embossing folder, the two-tone ribbon (it isn’t really as two-toned as I expected, but I love the softness of the ribbon … Read More
