Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because this month’s theme is “Art from the Heart” and we think you’re going to love it! You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
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.
Thanks so much for hopping with the Pals today! We love to read your comments.

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:
Now for the info about the FREE items. You’ll notice that the price of the first two items in my Product list is $0.00, and that’s because they are FREE Sale-A-Bration items with a qualifying order.

It’s time for another masculine birthday card, and golf is a great theme for guys!
This card began with the 3″ X 2 1/2″ drawing of the golfer that I colored with Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Pencils. It was cropped from the Country Club Designer Paper that you see beneath my card.
The golf cart paper is another sheet of Country Club DSP, and I gave both a 1/16″ border of Basic Gray Cardstock.
The background is Smoky Slate Cardstock that I embossed with the Argyle Embossing Folder. This is actually the “debossed” side. Isn’t it great? I layered it on a card base of Basic Gray Cardstock.
“Happy Birthday” is from the Clubhouse Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, and cut with a Golf Club Die. The stamp set and dies are in my Product List as a bundle (you save 10%), but can be ordered separately.
My layout is from CAS(E) this sketch.

Only five days until Valentine’s Day, and “love is in the air.” How about a Heart Pocket Bouquet? That’s what I named today’s creation.
Heart Pocket Bouquet
This card began as an experiment, because I wasn’t sure it would work. I used a Be Mine Stitched Die to cut the heart from Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and embossed it with the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder. Then, I used my fingers for shaping, so it’s open at the top. The scalloped trim cuts at the same time as the heart, which is glued flat. The heart is only glued at the bottom, and is holding securely.
The green foliage was made by Sponge Daubing Pear Pizzazz Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, cut with Poppy Moments Dies.
The small flowers are from Lily Impressions Designer Paper, cut with a Special Day die.
The background for the heart is Whisper White Cardstock, embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder, on a Thick Whisper White card base.
The strip was made with a Tropical Chic stamp, stamped in Pear Pizzazz Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and trimmed to 4″ X 3/4″.
Since this is a valentine, I found “Happy Valentine’s Day” in the Meant To Be Stamp Set, I stamped it in Memento Black Ink, and used an Ornate Frames Die for cutting.

Dino hasn’t seen daylight for a while, so he wanted to come out and say, “Happy Birthday.”
Dino’s Birthday Card
I stamped Dino in Bermuda Bay Ink, because he wanted to match his favorite balloon color. He was easy to cut, using his Dino Die. The Dino Days Stamp Set and Dino Dies are shown as a bundle (you save 10%) in my Product List, but they can be purchased separately.
The balloon paper is from Birthday Bonanza Designer Paper. I used a layering Squares Die, and then the Detailed Trio Punch to round the corners. Check out the punch in my product List. It’s so much fun to use this punch, I could go crazy and round the corners on EVERYTHING!
Dino wanted everyone to know he is the one saying, “Happy Birthday,” so I used the “speaking bubble” from the Special Day Die Set. The coordinating, Special Someone Stamp Set, has the perfectly sized sentiment, which I stamped in Memento Black Ink.
For the background, Dino talked me into using the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder on Whisper White Cardstock. Have you seen dinosaur skin? Well, I haven’t, but Dino said this is what his skin looks like, and it ties his card together.
Dino wants to show off his card at Freshly Made Sketches.
And, Seize the Birthday, because he is a GREAT creature.
