Celebrate Today, Important Dates + Design Inside of Cards

Welcome to Wednesday! I hope that your day is going well so far. šŸ™‚

I have a card to share today that is a CASE (copy and share everything) from Pinterest. You can see Teneale’s card HERE. I changed up a few things because I didn’t have all of the same supplies as her original.

I had a sweet comment from a girl named April (Hi-April! šŸ™‚ ). She asked for some direction on how to keep the design flowing into the center of the card. I didn’t have too many resources for her to check out. As I was editing this card I realized that I had a little something to share with April (and the rest of you!). Here is the inside of this card:

One way to coordinate the inside of the card to the front is to stamp an image from the same set on the inside. If I am using a dark colored card stock for my card base I always add a light colored layer, usually Whisper White, like I did here. I stampedĀ the solid balloon image and a few extras like the ribbon and balloon string. Of course, I added a sweet sentiment to the inside too. Petite Pairs is a great set for sentiments!

Another way to coordinate the inside to the outside is to use a strip of Designer Series Paper. If you used it on the outside then it’s a given to match on the inside! I hope this helps you see some new possibilities.

I also received a question from Lauren! She has some questions about retiring lists and the NEW Catalog dates. I actually just marked my calendar yesterday with all of these important dates!


  • April 21st: Retired List is released. Remember-accessories and items that are NOT stamp sets are only going to be available while supplies last!
  • May 6th: I will be placing anĀ order for NEW Catalogs to be mailed to my customers that have placed $50 (or more) in orders with me in the last year. If this is you–be on the look out for your FREE catalog–expected to ship out around May 12th! If you would like me to send you a catalog (and you have not placed $50 in orders) I can send a PayPal invoice for $5.00Ā fromĀ May 1st-May 6th. Contact me if you would like to order your own catalog!
  • June 2nd: NEW Catalog Goes LIVE!! Order all of the new great products!
  • June 2nd: Today is the LAST DAY to order available items from the Retired List AND the Occasions Catalog! You can order NEWĀ catalog product along with RetiringĀ items today only!

Mark your calendar folks! Lots coming up!

Here are your NEW Weekly Deals! There are some great deals this week…


Have a great day!! If YOU have a question for me do not hesitate–just ask!



Work of Art!

Welcome back!  Today I thought I would share with you what we handed out to lots of special people on the last day of school last week.  I made 10 packs of cards (with 3 cards to a package) in just one evening!  The perfect starting point was a couple of packages our notecards/envelopes.  NO cutting or scoring for me=Quick & Easy!  I created these “thank you, apple” tags for an order that I got off Etsy last week so, I made extra for my own use!  The stamps are retired but, both punches are available.  I also attached my business card just in case any of those teachers need me in the future! šŸ˜‰
Work Of Art is a new stamp set that is now available to purchase!!  
Today is the last day to order Retiring Products AND New Products on the same order!  This is your LAST CHANCE to order the Retiring Products (plus, some at awesome discounts!!).

Oh, Hello! 50% off Retirement Blowout Sale; Stampin’ Up!

How do you like this designer paper?  If you go looking for it in the catalog you will not find it because I stamped it!!  The little arrows are intended for outlining another image in the set but, I thought it worked great on its own.  If you click on the image you may see that I added glitter on some of the arrows and around the “Oh, Hello” image.
I used my Color Coach to come up with this color combination.  šŸ™‚
I hope that you enjoyed today’s card.  Remember, in under 2 weeks the retired items are gone for good!
Oh, Hello is a retiring stamp set.  This set in wood-mount is 50% making it only $12.98 (that’s nearly $6 cheaper than the clear-mount)!!  Both are still available!
