Can you ever really have enough flower stamps?

I have asked myself that question and my answer is NO!  I resisted buying the Watercolor Trio stamp set in the Summer mini catalog for a month.  I kept on looking at it and finally I couldn't stand it any longer and got it and well, I am glad I did!  The set not only has some gorgeous images but great words too!.  It really is an easy set to work with and you can make some beautiful cards in a flash.  I was so taken with the set that I had to offer a class that focused on this set.  Here's one of the cards we made.


Stamps:  Watercolor Trio (just 1 set!)
Paper:  Marina Mist (new color) ,Whisper White, Presto Patterns Designer Series paper
Inks:  Daffodil Delight (new color), Old Olive, Marina Mist, Black Stazon
Big Shot:  Vintage Wallpaper folder (new!!)
Extras:  Word Window punch, Fire circle Rhinestones, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Stampin Sponges

I colored in the Presto Patterns paper with a sponge and Marina Mist and Daffodil Delight ink.  This really makes the pattern POP!  This set would work for lots of different occasions, kind of the little black dress of stamps.  You still have time to order Watercolor Trio but why wait?  Contact me or order online at

Because I Care

I think the level 1 hostess sets in 2010-2011 catalog are the BEST!  One of my favorites (you'll see me say this a lot!) is the Because I Care set.  Here's a quick card made with this set that we made at my last Stamp a Stack.


Stamps:  Because I Care and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks:  Black Stazon, Marina Mist, Old Olive, So Saffron and Bashful Blue
Big Shot:  Vintage Wallpaper (LOVE IT!)
Extras:  Bashful Blue satin ribbon (this color is available in the Summer mini catalog), glitter

If you do not have the new 2010-2011  Stampin'Up catalog let me know.  You do not want to miss this Fantastic summer read!

It's Official!

I got a call from Stampin'UP! and I made it on the boat!  I am SO HAPPY and I want to thank  everyone who helped me and encouraged me.  I'm getting teary eyed thinking about it.  I had until 10pm last night to get all the necessary orders in and I think I got the last one in at 9:30 pm.  Thank you so so much!   A cruise to Alaska has been on my "list" for a long time and I am so thrilled! 

I am going to take a few days off and then I will be back updating my blog and gearing up for another fun year of stamping!
