I like a simple card but with a bit of sparkle and this has both those elements.
The base card and card front are Whisper White (#106549). The sentiment was stamped with Powder Pink ink (#144084). This is from the Butterfly Basics stamp set (#c138816, #w138813, #p137154). I embossed the card front with the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#145649) and I also sponged the edge of the cardfront with Powder Pink ink. The curved lines under the flower are cut with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits (#141497) using the Iredescent Glimmer Paper from the Myths & Magic 6”x6” Glimmer Paper (#145601). This was glued to the card using the Fine-Tip Glue pen (#138309). I stamped the flower from the Daisy Delight stamp set (#p143669) with Powder Pink Ink (#144084) onto Powder Pink card (#144251). There is a co-ordinating Daisy punch (#143713) to punch these flowers. I offset the 2 flowers, assembling them with a Stampin’ Dimensional (#104430), then adding a Glitter Enamel Dot (#144200) to the centre. Before assembling the flower I added some sparkle to the petals using the Clear Wink Of Stellla Glitter Brush (#141897). I added sequins from the Iredescent Sequin Assortment (#144212) to the card.
That’s all for another day.

The beautiful Shimmery White Embossing Paste (#145645) has been used for this background, using the Sweet Soirée Decorative masks (#145643). I love that the sparklely bits don’t come off the card. This paste doesn’t take long to set so ensure you clean your mask and palette knife immediately.
The base card is Powder Pink (#144251) and the rest of the cardstock is Whisper White (#106549). The flowers, bird and sentiment are all from the Petal Palette stamp set (#c145788, #w145785) and stamped with VersaMark 102283) and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109129). I coloured the flowers with Stampin’ Blends - Pink Pirouette and Old Olive. All the stamped images are cut with dies from the co-ordinating Petals & More Thinlits (#145655). This stamp set and framelits are also available in a bundle - the Petal Palette Bundle (#c145974, #w145973). I used the Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) to attach all these images to the card. I used the beautiful Powder Pink 3/8” Shimmer Ribbon (#144151) and Glitter Enamel Dots (#144200) to finish off the card.
Have a great weekend.
Hi ladies & guys,
Valentine’s Day isn’t too far away and I was asked to make some cards, so here is one I made with the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits (#141489).
I embossed the Rich Razzleberry base card (#119981) with the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#145648). The Designer series Paper attached to the base card is from the Colour Theory DSP Stack (#144193) and the top DSP is from the Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (#145580). I used Gold Glimmer Paper (#133719) for the heart and love which were cut with the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and these were glued to the card with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen (#138309). The ribbon is 1/4” Stitched-Edge Ribbon (#144121) in Rich Razzleberry. I have just realised there is no stamping on this card.
Well that’s all for today. I’m off to make some more cards.

Hello and welcome,
Here’s a great masculine card using the Happy Birthday Thinlits (#143700) for the sentiment.
Firstly, I embossed the Very Vanilla card front (#106550) with the Pinewood Planks 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#143708). This dynamic folder creates deep, dimensional embossed impressions. Due to the thickness of the folder, you only use one of the standard cutting pads when building your “sandwich”. This was then attached to the Crumb Cake base card (#121685). The Designer Series Paper is from the Wood Textures DSP Stack (#144177) and I also added a strip of Early Espresso card (#121686). I cut Happy Birthday with both Pumpkin Pie card (#108601) and Early Espresso card and attached them so the top layer was slightly offset to give a shadow effect. I used the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (#144106) on the back of these cards before cutting with the thinlits. This makes it so easy to adhere these more intricate pieces to the card. The leaves are from the Vintage Leaves stamp set (#p138802) and stamped with Crumb Cake ink (#121685), Old Olive (#126953) and Pumpkin Pie (#126945). These were cut out with the Leaflets Framelits (#138283) and attached to the card with Mini Glue Dots (#103683).
Have a great day.

A very quick and simple card using the Lovely Wishes stamp set (#p145924) for the images on this card.
I stamped the outline of the flower on the right and the sentiment with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (#132708). The leaves on the left and the leaf with the flower were stamped with Lemon Lime Twist ink (#144086). The flower was stamped with Crushed Curry ink (#131173). This stamp set is a two step stamp so makes it easy to use different colours on your images. The Myths & Magic 6”x6” Glimmer Paper was used for the swirly circles which was cut with a die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits (#141497). There are 3 colours in this pack of glimmer paper - Iredescent, light green (which I have used here) and turquoise. The Whisper White card front (#106549) was attached to a piece of Basic Black card (#121688), then this was attached to the Lemon Lime Twist base card (#144250).
That’s all after another busy day.

I just love this gorgeous Painted With Love Specialty Paper (#145580) which is part of the Painted With Love Suite from the Occasions catalogue.
The DSP at the bottom of the card is the reverse side of the DSP at the top. Each paper in this pack has gold foil on one side along with beautiful designs on both sides. I stamped the heart image from the Sure Do Love You stamp set (#c145766, #w145763) onto the Designer Series Paper using Fresh Fig ink (#144082). The leaves and sentiment are from this stamp set as well and also using Fresh Fig ink. These were stamped onto Whisper White card (#106549). The heart was stamped with Powder Pink ink (#144084). This heart and the leaves were cut with the Lots Of Love Framelits Dies (#145653). Something different with this set is that there are 2 dies to cut the leaves, allowing you to cut 2 at the same time. What a great idea. The sentiment and heart were attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430) and I used Mini Glue dots (#103683) for the leaves. The base card is Fresh Fig (#144248). The gold heart on the pink heart and the one in the top left corner are from the Painted Love Gold Vinyl Stickers (#145586). The Calypso Coral ribbon from Sale-a-bration has been attached to the card were the Designer Series Paper join. This ribbon is from the Shimmer Ribbon Pack (#147243) which also includes Basic Gray and Bermuda Bay. The 3 ribbons are different sizes in width.
The Sure Do Love You stamp set and Lots Of Love Box Framelits Dies can also be purchased as a bundle (#c145966, #w145965) and of course you save 10%.
Have a great day.

There is a great range of free products (with a qualifying order) available from the Sale-a-bration catalogue, including the Amazing You stamp set (#c147215) which I have used for this card.
The base card is Elegant Eggplant (#108614) and the card front is Whisper White (#106549). I stamped the flowers with Wild Wasabi ink (126959) onto the card front. Then I stamped the flowers again in Elegant Eggplant ink (#126969), Wisteria Wonder (#126985) and Fresh Fig (#144082) onto a separate piece of card and cut out the flowers by hand. These were the attached to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430), over the top of the original stamped flowers. Let’s Celebrate was stamped with Elegant Eggplant ink, and the sun rays were stamped with Daffodil Delight ink (#126944). I added some Glitter Enamel Dots to the flower centres (#144200).
That’s all for today.
