Seize the Birthday - One Layer

Hi everyone!  It's time again for another Seize the Birthday challenge.  This time the "topping" is to create a One Layer card.  Remember, the "topping" is optional.


My card is not a "true" one layer card, because I added a sentiment strip.  I think we all define one layer cards a bit differently, as some would consider this a one layer card and others would not.  No worries though, because the topping is always optional. 



I stamped the row of flowers from a retired Cas-ual Friday's stamp set in rainbow colors and added a black and white heat embossed sentiment.  Love the impact of the rainbow colors.

Hope you will join us over at Seize the Birthday!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Birthday Card Stash - DONE!!!

Hi everyone!  We have started a fun, new Birthday Celebration class over on StampNation!  The class kicked off on Saturday with a fun tutorial by CAS-ual Fridays and today's tutorial by Winnie & Walter!  Since Winnie & Walter is the sponsor, I decided to create a card using some of their goodies.  The tutorial for today is to create birthday cards to send to your BFF!!

Today happens to be Catherine's birthday, so this one's for YOU!!! 
 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CATHERINE!!!


I used The Ring in the Celebration set that Winnie & Walter designed for the Stamp of Approval Young at Heart collection.  I started by masking off my card panel and blending some distress oxide inks.  After blending, I spattered some water to get some fun water marks.  Made sure it was completely dry before stamping the images from the set.  The sentiment is by Papertrey Ink.

I followed the sketch over at SIP Challenge.

Sending Love


Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!  I have another fun card to share with you using the goodies from the Stamp of Approval Love is in the Air collection.  I have started seeing some gorgeous cards popping up all over social media with the collection.  That is my favorite part-seeing what you all create!

This card uses the awesome arrow stamp in the Love is in the Air stamp set.  I definitely used my MISTI to get them lined up perfectly.  I love how this turned out.

I am going to add this over at CAS on Friday!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Love is in the Air Stamp of Approval Release Day!


Hi everyone!  It's Release Day for the SOA Love is in the Air collection!

I have another card to share with you today using goodies from the collection!

This card features the amazing The World Awaits, Happiness Enclosed & Bon Voyage stamp sets!


I stamped and clear heat embossed the world images onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock.  I then colored in the areas using my Zig Clean Color Brush Markers.  I just love how bright these are and how well they blend on this watercolor paper.  I added a white heat embossed sentiment and some black and white twine to finish off this pretty simple card!

I wanna talk about the envelope too!  The Happiness Enclosed stamp set is perfect for adding special little touches to your envelopes!  This stamp says "Made especially for you, so I know you are going to love it".  I love the heart that you can stamp on the inside of the sentiment too!  This is definitely a must have in your stamp room!

Have you seen the new blocks Catherine came out with?  This rectangle block is a game changer for me, it's so perfect for many of the long border stamps Catherine has in her collections.  Check it out!!!


This block measures 2 1/2 x 6 1/8"

Why do I love them?
  • the indentations are the perfect for tor your fingertips
  • the etched gridline helps you to line up your stamps
  • sized to fit the most commonly used stamp sizes
  • lightweight for their size

These blocks are perfection in my book!!!  Catherine also has a NEW ROUND BLOCK that is just as amazing.  You can find all the blocks in the links below.


I hope you have enjoyed seeing my cards using this amazing collection.  I look forward to seeing the many creations popping up all over Blog land when you all receive your collections.  That is my favorite part!

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Sending Love - Stamp of Approval Love is in the Air Release Day

Hi everyone!  Today's the day-It's release day for the Stamp of Approval Love is in the Air collection for those on the Wait List.  Hope you got your name on the list, these collections sell out quickly!!!  If you are not on the Wait List and the collection doesn't sell out, ordering will open to the public tonight at 6pm.

I have another card to share with you all today using the Postage Stamp dies, Bon Voyage Stamp set & Accoutrements dies.


I started my card by die cutting the stitched rectangle panel from Kraft card stock and the postage stamp layer in white.  I stamped and white heat embossed the compass and sentiment.  I attached these to a kraft card base.

To add a pop of red, I used the direct to paper technique to color my white card stock red using Rockin' Red ink.  I then die cut this fun burst with a heart in the center and attached it to the center of the compass.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my cards using this amazing collection.  I look forward to seeing the many creations popping up all over Blog land when you all receive your collections.  That is my favorite part!
