Card Created by Linda Droege

I was so excited to get Linda’s Double Triangle Fun Fold Card!  I have been wanting to make one of these fun folds and hers is just over the top gorgeous! I love everything about it from the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper to the organza ribbon she dyed to match.  Here’s how it looks opened.

Card Created by Ramsey Alexander

This card is just beautiful in person! Ramsey used the Brusho Crystal Colour ink crystals to watercolor over the heat embossed butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set.  I need to pull out my Crystal Colours and play.  Ramsey has done several of these cards and they come out beautiful and different every time.  This is a fun watercolor technique!

Stampin Up Beautiful Bouquet friend card idea - For inspiration, ordering and more visit www.juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Card Created by Deb Echelmeyer

Deb is so creative! I love how she used the flower stems from the Bouquet Bunch Dies to make a lilac bush!  (Which just happen to be my favorite flower scent!)  Deb added texture and layers to this beautiful card using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder and Layering Dies. Such a pretty spring card!

Stampin Up Birthday Blooms and Bouquet Bunch friend card idea - for inspiration, ordering and more, visit www.juststampin.com  Jeanie Stark  StampinUp
Card Created by Rosanne Mulhern

Rosanne’s card is another example of adding layers to create a beautiful card! Like Deb, she used the Beautiful Bunch Framelits to cut out the flowers and leaves. Even though this card has many flowers and layers, it has a clean & simple feel with the black & white background. I love the sentiment (and font) she used from the Birthday Blooms stamp set. It is retiring in May but it’s definitely one I will keep and continue to use. I love all the sentiments and beautiful flowers in this set.  Check it out below and be sure to get it before it’s gone!

I so appreciate the stamping community and my stamping friends! Everyone so willingly shares their ideas and talent.  Together we really can make a difference as we share our handmade kindness one card at a time! Make someone smile today!!

Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate you taking the time to comment and I love it when you shop my online store.  Your support helps me to keep doing what I love!!  Everyone who shops with me this month will receive one of my swap cards (you can see it HERE) in addition to my monthly thank you gifts (card kits and more).

Have a wonderful day! It’s a beautiful day here in Hagerstown, Maryland and I’m going to soak up the sunshine on my walk this afternoon!

Card Created by Mary Anne Schnettgoecke

This thank you card created by Mary Anne is sure to brighten anyone’s day!  I absolutely love the Flower Shop Stamp Set and matching Pansy Punch and I may shed a few tears over these retiring. I have used them for all different occasions! I love the way Mary Anne heated embossed the flowers with white embossing powder then watercolored such bright and cheery colors. She used my favorite paper too, Shimmery White. Thank goodness the paper is sticking around!!!

Stampin Up Country Livin' Masculine Birthday card idea - for inspiration, ordering, and more visit www.juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp
Card Created by Anne-Marie Schofer

Anne-Marie made matching red tags for all the PALS attending the event.  She is just the sweetest and is from my home state of Massachusetts! She used the Country Livin’, Guy Greetings, and Hardwood Stamp sets to create this masculine birthday card using the masking technique. For some reason I want to sing “These boots were made for walking..” The Guy Greetings stamp set used on this card is retiring but Hardwood and Country Livin’ will be in the new annual catalog.

I hope this showcase of cards has inspired you today!  Check back tomorrow to see more beautiful cards I received.  Be sure to check out the retiring items below so you don’t have any regrets later!

It’s High Tide


I have been on Spring Break for the past 11 days and it has been glorious!  After spending Easter in Massachusetts with family, I picked up my friend in Virginia and we drove to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for a beach retreat vacation.

Look what came on vacation with me! Beach + Paper Pumpkin = Double the Happy!

Here’s a photo of my friend, Laura.  We taught together for many years in Virginia. We live 4 hours apart now so it’s always a treat when we can get together.
