Heaps of Happiness and more

I apologize for being so late posting today.  It has been a crazy morning.  But it has allowed me to update my blog with the DSP Sale Flyer!  WooHoo!  This is one of my favorite times of the year.  It is the very popular Buy 3, and Get 1 Free on Select Designer Series Paper.  The flyer is at the end of the post so you can see which ones to choose from.  My September Host Code is at the bottom as well.

Another AWESOME bit of news is tomorrow is the beginning of the Holiday Catalog!  I cannot wait for you to be able to order these wonderful items.  I want it all!!

Now on to today’s project.  It is a Happy card, and great for showers of any kind.


I love this stamp set!  It is the Birthday Goodness set that has donuts and macarons.  What is not to LOVE??  I wanted to do a variety of colors because I love the different flavors of macarons.  However, the choice of paper made me settle on just two.

I chose the Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow to go with the Daffodil Delight roses.  The designer series paper is a reverse side of one of the Magnolia Lane DSP.

The adorable ribbon combo is actually a Ribbon Combo (HaHa!) from the Magnolia Suite of products.  It is Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo and is the great linen like ribbon with a Mossy Meadow Baker’s Twine to match.

Thank you for checking in today.  Be sure and check out the DSP Sale the starts tomorrow and add it to your list from the Holiday Catalog.  If you do not have a Holiday  Catalog and would like one, please contact me and I will get one to you.



My September Host Code is VYHZ6ZM2.  Please use this code for orders under $150.00.  I will have a small perk for those with orders over $50.00.

Love And Joy

I hope you love the Woven Heirlooms suite of products as much as I do.  Partly because I think it is a fabulous suite.  And partly because I have another card from it to share with you today.  This will be the last of my favorite piece of the DSP, because I am out of it.  It is on my next order list though!!


As I have said before, this is an awesome set but additionally it has made me fall in love with the Seaside Spray InColor.  It is a beautiful blue with just a hint of a purple, at least in my opinion.  Having used it so much with the DSP, it has become a fast favorite.  To top that off, Stampin’ Up! added a Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon to the Holiday Catalog.  WooHoo!!!  As you can see from the photo, it has a touch of shimmer to it.

Since I love the designer series paper so much, and the added beauty of the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon, I had to have an equally gorgeous sentiment.  I love this sentiment, which is from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set .  I believe it is great for a birthday or wedding, and maybe other occasions.  And I love the fonts used in the sentiment as well.  To showcase the sentiment I looked through my dies and found the Stitched Labels Die.  The sentiment fit perfectly and the die really stands out on the card.  Yay!!

Thank you so much for visiting today.  Please come back tomorrow for another new project.  Also, please remember that the Stampin’ Up! Join Promotion is coming to an end on Saturday.  I truly love being a demonstrator, I love Stampin’ Up! products, and most of all I love all of the friendships I have made because of it.  I would be happy to answer any questions you have if you are thinking about becoming a demonstrator.  It was one of the best decisions I have ever made!  And I would love to have you join my team.

Today I have once again used the Cake Soiree stamp set.  I have paired it with the fabulous Gorgeous Grape from the Color Revamp.  This is a beautiful color and if you are a fan of purples, then this one is definitely for you.


Stampin' Up!, Cake Soiree, Gorgeous Grape, Detailed Trio Punch, Jackie Beers

Cake Soiree, 145745



Please forgive the smudge under the cake!  Somehow by simply laying on my craft table waiting for me to take the photograph it got a smudge!  I cannot even blame it on one of the cats!!

I colored the cake with the Stampin’ Blends. And WOOHOO they are back in stock to catch up on the backorders and I am anxiously awaiting the availability of the additional colors.  I do LOVE the Stampin’ Blends.  The background layer of Pear Pizzaz is embossed with the Ruffled Impressions Embossing Folder.  This gives almost a 3D effect in person.

There are three new items on this card as well.  The 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, which comes in Whisper White and Very Vanilla, and the Detailed Trio Punch.  Both are awesome!  The ribbon is very easy to work with and added just enough of an additional element.  The Detailed Trio Punch is super!  It punches the little flower you see here.  It also punches a ribbon hole as well as is a corner rounder.  And it is super easy to use.  If you had the trio punch from a few years ago, it might have been a little difficult to actually punch.  At least mine was.  This one is super easy and I love the little flower!  As well as the corner rounder since the old one retired. Oh…..I forgot the 3rd item.  It is the Share What You Love Pearls.  And they are gorgeous.  I added several of them to my cake and the flowers.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you like this card.  I see it as a birthday or a bridal shower.  All of the supplies I have listed at the bottom of the page.  I hope you have a great rest of your day!



It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.






Yesterday’s Bike Ride card was a small centered focal point.  Today is basically the same, without a sentient, and very unintentional.  I have played with the Cake Soiree stamp set and from the large set I chose one little stamp.  I suppose I am in “small” mode this week!


Stampin' Up!, Cake Soiree, Tranquil Texture, Jackie Beers

Cake Soiree, 145745


I believe that the Designer Series Paper, Tranquil Texture, is more prominent than the stamped gift.  I really, really love this paper and combination of colors.  I stamped the package onto the DSP and then colored the flowers using the Stampin’ Blends.  (Which are back in supply!  WooHoo!!)  I used the colors from the DSP for my blending.

I wanted this to be just a cute card and decided not to add a sentiment.  To help enhance the center, I added the Berry Burst Metallic Edge Ribbon for some shine and bold color.  I also added the silver/white baker’s twine for the package bow.   I know the colors seem a tad dark, but the dark layers of the card are the returning favorite Blackberry Bliss.  The base of the card is one of the New colors, Balmy Blue.  It is a really nice and soft blue.

Thank you for visiting with me again today.  I very much appreciate it.  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.  You can click on any item and be taken directly to my online store.

Bluebird of Happiness

LOL !!!  If you are my age, you probably grew up with the “Bluebird of Happiness” not being a good thing.  But that was exactly what I thought of when I saw the bird with the heart on top of the cart.  And that led to part of my color scheme for this card.  I am really happy with my bluebird here.


Stampin' Up! Friendships Sweetest Thoughts Jackie Beers, stampinup friendship sweetest thoughts jackiebeers

Friendships Sweetest Thoughts, 145826


My spring type flowers are my happy thoughts for warmer weather. I am tired of being cold!  I definitely would not make it living in the north.   So I went with spring flowers and soft colors.




The Night of Navy is a far cry from a “soft” color,  that  I was going for with this card.  I think it works though.  I believe it helps to draw out the color in the softer shades.  I hope you like it as well.  This was a super quick card to make and I hope you will give it a try.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today.  I very much appreciate it and I love your comments.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.  Please contact me if you have any questions.

Three Treat 3-D box

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s December Blog Hop! We have a fun Blog Hop theme today – Wrap it Up! The hop is filled with projects that are perfect for this time of year – everything from gift-packaging ideas to bundling up to stay warm. We are excited to share our creations with you today.  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Thank you for joining me in this blog hop!  My wrap it up project is the 3-D gift I made as a gift.  This is my first post on a 3-D project.  I feel like I was channeling my inner Julie DiMatteo when I made it.  HaHa!!!!!  Julie is the 3-D Queen, and a great friend.  Although this project is from another SU Demonstrator’s YouTube video, www.positivelypapercraft.co.uk  Here is a link to her video. Click Here

Here are a couple of pictures of the finished product.

Stampin' Up! Year of Cheer, Jackie Beers

Year of Cheer DSP, 144640

I used the same DSP as the demonstrator did in her video.  It was just perfect for what I needed.  Any of SU’s thicker DSP would be wonderful.  I changed the inner part to just Thick Whisper White card stock. I have already made a few in different colors as gifts.  They really are easy to make. I cannot wait to give them out.

I have also made templates for the top and the bottom.  I have not braved making a video tutorial yet, but this is one I would love to do.  I found a few tricks that worked for me.  I also used the 1 3/8″ circle punch instead of the Layering Circles Framelits that the other lady used.

Here are the templates I made.  Hopefully they will make sense.  If not, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Shawn de Oliveira at Shawn Stamps. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!
