You Amaze Me

The Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper has a variety of embossed patterns and that can be sponged with any color you desire.  It is so much fun and a no brainer.  Right up my alley.  And that Butterfly…'s Fabulous!

Lotus Blossom

The Lotus Blossom stamp set is a beautiful triple stamp set that can be used with one or multiple colors of ink.  It is gorgeous either way. I've seen it all over Pinterest and just had to give it a try.  Any sentiment will work with this card for many occassions.

You’re the Best!

The colors in the Best Every Designer Series Paper  are very cheerful.  Even though this paper series will soon retire, the card design is versatile and could be used with several other paper series.

You Light UP My Life

This is a card made a while back that features several new products by Stampin' UP!  The Chalkboard Board Paper and Chalk Ink is what I wanted to feature with this card but there are also the fun Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack and the Ornate Tag Topper Punch.  All this bling makes you want to start singing along with Debbie Boone.

Retro Valentine

I am considering this card to be the perfect Valentine.  OK so it’s not the typical red & white with hearts all over.  It’s however extremely bright and cheerful with a sentiment that allows one to pause for a moment to reflect on the meaningful foundation of a relationship.  What better way to recognize someone special in your life with a fantastic card.  So….give the Retro Valentine and hope for chocolate in return.
