Does anyone else struggle with masculine cards like I do? I often feel like the products available for these types of cards are too specific. I don't like making cards with tool sets or ties, as the person receiving, do not wear ties or happen to be someone using tools. The of course I search and feel that I don't find anything more general. The masculine cards seem to be boring, older and quite frankly not fun to me! And well, the majority of my supplies are just to feminine and if I do make a more masculine card, it's too young looking??? Anyone feel my struggle??
So...the new True Gentlemen Suite is a nice addition to my supplies. But I am not a huge fan of the colors! But the DSP is really nice and very usable!! I do like the stamps! And I love that the set is bundled with a punch!!! Going forward, I want to work on creating my own patterns in colors I that I think is a little more appealing and modern!
I am still very happy with the designs of the cards!!! I know I will definitely have more use of this suite than those of the past!!!!!
Thanks for listening! I am open to suggestions as well!!!
Picture Perfect Party
This Suite seems to be the perfect set for any type of birthday!!!!! I have been refreshing my inventory of cards! And I'm not above saying - and I say it all the time - I just love all the ideas on Pinterest! When I have very little time to craft but have sooo much to get done. I can't sit here trying this or that, I need to create and reproduce quickly! I have no problem giving the credit to who I CASED from! Sooo thank you to Faithful INKspirations, Kelly Acheson for your designs!!!
As I mentioned in a previous post, the Picture Perfect Party Suite can be purchased for just under $60 in our new Occasions Catalog by Stampin UP! You can mix and match what you need to create the perfect products for you!

Its a Magical Day
Aren’t these cards simply magical!! I just love them!!!! I do not have many stamps for children that I have come across and thought I have to have them!!! I will admit, I thought the set was cute but had a hard time seeing myself using them!!! Once I started seeing all the wonderful projects that have been created with Myths & Magic Suite, I knew it was time to purchase!!!! I am soo glad I did!!
These cards were inspired by Kristal Bell, Stampin’ Hoot, and Mercedes Weber! Thank you ladies for you’re awesome creations!
The Myths & Magic Suite can be found on pages 36-37 of the Occasions Catalog!

I have been working on refreshing some of my cards that I sell in a local boutique! My go to for inspiration is Pinterest! I love finding a design that works for my needs and I am very grateful for the demonstrators who share their creations!!! Todays’ cards were inspired by Patty Bennett, combining Party Pandas and Picture Perfect Birthday stampsets. Such a fun and simple card to make! I used the colors that are found in the Perfect Party DSP! The combination of Bermud Bay, Berry Burst, Lemon-lime Twist and Peakaboo Peach really makes a bright and cheery card!!!!
The entire Picture Perfect Party Suite can be purchased for just under $60! But the best part is you can earn the Party Pandas stampset for free, during Sale-A-Bration!
How great is that!!!!
Hope you enjoy

This month’s theme is All About Love! And what better products to use? The brand new Painted with Love by Stampin Up!
As I was designing my cards, I made each slightly different, using the same products! The Painted with Love Specialty DSP is gorgeous in person I don’t think picture do it justice!!! I used Rich Razzleberry and Powder Pink inks and cardstock.
The cardbase is Powder Pink. I used the Lots to Love Box Framelits and Sure Do Love You stamp set. I chose 2 different patterns of the DSP for my layers and a 3rd for the larger heart, cut out with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits..
I added the Love Mini Tinsel Trim in a pretty bow at the top of each card! I think I’m more partial to the card on the left but I love both. This set is so much fun to use!
For my project, I used the Lots to Love Box Famelits. I created 2 boxes and decorated the front! I wasn’t sure what to put in them. At first I thought candy, but then decided to make some notecards!
The notecards are simple and super easy to make! 4 5/8 x 5 1/2 and on the 5 1/2 side score at 2 3/4. Walla! I kept them simple and not over-decorated as I wanted the box to be the focal point! I stamped the "candy" heart images in Rich Razzleberry, Powder Pink and Calypso Coral. Then I chose the DSP pattern and used the Heart dies in the Lots to Love Box framelits to cut them out. Simple, right! But I think the cards have a big look!
As I was prepping the decoration for the box, I couldn’t decide if I wanted the ribbon or not so I made one with and one without!
I used Powder Pink, Calypso Coral and Rich Razzleberry for ink colors. The heart with the vine image does not have a matching framelits so I fussy cut it out. I also stamped the leaves to the inside of the heart to save paper, the cut outs won’t be seen as the Calypso Coral heart sticks over it!
What do you think??!
I hope you like my projects for this Blog Hop.
Be sure to leave a comment, as I will drawing my own Blog Candy for this Hop! Then click on Katja Ettig name at the #3 on the list to follow along!

I'M BACK!! Did you miss me?? I miss all of you too!
Well, I really didn't go anywhere, but I haven't had a chance to blog in a while! December quickly came and went for me and most of the month just seems like a blur. I was a bit overwhelmed with all I had going on, that sadly a few things had to take a backseat.
I was sick for a few weeks with a virus that just knocked me on my bottom! No down-time, running around working, PTO, being a mom, and getting ready for the holidays just had me flat out!!
I am sure many of you can relate!
But that is behind me now and it's a new year, new beginning!
There so much going on with Stampin UP in 2018 I don't know where to begin! So let's just dive right in!!!
