Today’s card features three of the FREE Sale-A-Bration items you can earn with qualifying orders. They are the first three items in my Product List below, which gives you more details.
Isn’t this lily gorgeous? The rich colors are so pretty in the Lily Impressions Designer Paper. The background for the lily is Pretty Peacock, the leaves are Garden Green, and the flower is Melon Mambo. Pictured, are the Lily Pad Dies I used for cutting.
The card base is Bermuda Bay, topped with Whisper White, that I embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.
Prior to embossing, I used a Lovely Lily Pad stamp with Bermuda Bay ink to make the waves. I also stamped “sending prayers” from Itty Bitty Greetings.
For a touch of shine, I added three dots of Noble Peacock Foil.
My layout is from CAS(E) this sketch.
I was so happy to find the “doodad” strip in the Lily Pad Dies!
I appreciate you visiting today. If you look at my Product List, you’ll notice the price of the first three items is $0.00. That’s because they are Sale-A-Bration items, and FREE with a qualifying order of $50.00 or $100.00.
Keep in mind, if you use my February Host Code (U463KNM3) with a minimum order of $50.00, I will send you the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder in March.
Thank you, and have a wonderful day!
The Beautiful Moments Stamp Set has wonderful, sketched, images for a focal point. They can be colored, or simply stamped, as shown here.
I stamped the backward lady in Old Olive Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and layered her on Pear Pizzazz Cardstock, giving a 1/16″ border. The floral paper is Best Dressed Designer Paper, trimmed to 2″ X 5 1/4″.
After gluing the Best Dressed DSP to Whisper White Cardstock, I embossed it with the Scripty Embossing Folder. Before gluing this 4″ X 5 1/4″ layer to a Thick Whisper White card base, I wrapped Mossy Meadow Linen Thread around it.
The sentiment, “Thinking of You,” is also from the Beautiful Moments Stamp set, stamped in Old Olive Ink.
To complete the card, I frayed the ends of the Linen Thread, and added three tiny Pearls.
The layout is from Freshly Made Sketches.

How do you like my Patent Leather Painted Poppies?
Patent Leather Poppies
I’m calling the poppies “patent leather,” because I cut the “frames” from Black Foil that looks just like patent leather. I used the die from the Poppy Moments die set for cutting, which made it very easy to do.
I wanted the sentiment to be shiny like the “frames,” so I used VersaMark and Black Embossing Powder. “Hello” (Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set) was stamped on Whisper White Cardstock, sprinkled with the powder, and set with the Heat Tool.
TIP: I stamped the sentiment first, in case it didn’t stamp just right, and used the Embossing Buddy to improve my chances. You can see in this close-up, there’s still room for improvement! Fortunately, the camera picks up more than the naked eye, so the stray powder won’t be seen by the recipient.
I used the “splotch” and “splatter” stamps from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set for the red and pink colors. The “splotch” is in Melon Mambo Ink and Lovely Lipstick Ink, which I stamped several times without re-inking. The “splatter” is Melon Mambo, stamped-off in two places.
After placing the poppy “frames” on Dimensionals, I added a few black jewels from my stash.
Today’s colors are from the Paper Players.
I’m also sharing with the “let it grow” theme at Global Design Project.
My store is open for business, and I’ve started offering a free gift to everyone who orders $50.00-149.00 within a month. If you use my Host Code, U463KNM3, February’s gift is the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder. I would love to send this to you in March.

I’m thinking of Valentine’s Day, and a heart full of poppies is as good as a box full of chocolates! Right? Well, maybe not, but this heart made with Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper and a Be Mine Stitched Die is making this bee happy.
The greenery beneath the heart was made with Granny Apple Green Cardstock and a Poppy Moments Die.
“Love” is from the Well Written Die Set, cut from Granny Apple Green Cardstock to blend in with the greenery, and match the card base.
The background is Whisper White Cardstock embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.
I just HAD to add the bee whose black and white stripes match the 1” strip on the side of the card. The bee and the strip are from Golden Honey Designer Paper, a FREE Sale-A-Bration item with a qualifying order.

It’s a “Tea Time Party” at the Sisterhood of Crafters, and the birds are joining in!
When I found out there was going to be a Tea Party, I immediately thought of the Tea Together Stamp Set. I chose Bird Ballad Designer Paper to create the scene, and stamped the teacup in Early Espresso ink on the pin dot DSP. Then, I used a Tea Time Die for cutting, and layered it for thickness.
The hearts were cut with a Be Mine Stitched Die from Thick Whisper White Cardstock.
For the background, I made a frame using a Be Mine Stitched Die (outside) and a Stitched So Sweetly Die (inside) with Bird Ballad DSP. I glued the frame to a Thick Whisper White card base that I had embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.
The three, sweet, birds are from Bird Ballad DSP, which I fussy cut, and they flew into position.
Prior to embossing the background, I stamped “party” in Early Espresso Ink. It’s from a retired stamp set, Endless Birthday Wishes.
Thank you for joining the Tea Party. I hope you feel welcome; we love having you here!

I love stamping the Thoughtful Blooms, and then using the Small Bloom Punch. It’s especially fun knowing they can be yours for Free! Keep reading…..
Bee & Blooms
I began with a Thick Whisper White card base, topped with Smoky Slate Cardstock and Whisper White Cardstock. Both layers were cut with Stitched Rectangles Dies.
Next, I used Detailed Bee Dies to cut the bee from Smoky Slate Cardstock, and the hive from Thick Whisper White Cardstock.
Once the bee and hive were in place, it was time for the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set. I stamped the vine in Pool Party Ink, and “Thank You,” from the same stamp set. Then, I stamped three flowers in Melon Mambo Ink, and used the Small Bloom Punch for cutting.
Do you see how the centers of the flowers shine? They are Clear Epoxy Droplets, which you can check out in my Product List.
My colors are from TGIF:
