Today’s card was a really fun one to make. The sad news is that the Chicken Wire (which I LOVE) is retiring! Say it ain’t so!
I decided to play with it before it was gone….. Here is the card I made for you today!:
I know that this picture looks like I used Tempting Turquoise, but the colors are all wrong, this was made using Bermuda Bay. Bermuda Bay is one of my very favorite colors! Not sure why my camera decided not to show the true color.
I used the Stamp set from SU! called Sitting Pretty. This stamp set is so much fun to stamp with, all the stamps work together so you don’t ‘color’ anything, you stamp it. Using the Stamparatus makes it even better!
Here are the specifics for this card:
Bermuda Bay 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Soft Sea Foam 4 1/4″ x 3 3/8″
Black 3 1/8″ x 4 1/8″
White 5 1/4″ x 4″, 3 7/8″ x 3″
Soft Sea Foam
Chicken Wire Elements
Bermuda Bay Striped Ribbon
Silver Embossing powder/embossing buddy/heat tool
The Galvanized Buttons are no longer available sad to say. So make sure if you want/need the chicken wire, get your order in now!!
If you are living in the US and are in need of a SU! Demo, look no further! I would love to be yours! Below are all the items used for this card, if you click on any of them you will be taken to my OnLine Store!
Thank you for stopping by! Please come back and see me!

Today I am sharing with you a Clean and Simple (CAS) card. I don’t do these very often, but I always ask myself why I don’t when I make things this pretty!
I used the Stained glass Bundle, which is a definite need if you haven’t bought it already! The center of the image is punched out with the 2″ circle punch! LOVE when I can use a punch!
Here is the card:
There is a Rhinestone in the center of the medallion that I colored with a Bermuda Bay Blend. The black outside is from the die, cut twice. It’s a half circle, but I put them together and hid the seam with the Banner in Petal Pink. Then the Black Cording. I also have more Rhinestones colored the same way around the card. Polka Dot Embossing folder was used also.
Hope you like this as much as I do!! I’ll be posting again soon!
Thank you for your support!

I am sharing with you a card that I made for a swap that I signed up for where I made 20 of these cards (below) and received 20 different swaps back!
Here is my card:
I think I love this stamp set so much because it reminds me of Disney and being a kid. Below I will have all the supplies listed to make this card, just click on any of the pictures to be taken to my OnLine Store.
I also used the Stamp set In the Trees by Stampin’ Up! for the grass under the dragon. I stamped the ‘Magic stars’ in Versamark on the Black and then embossed it with Silver Embossing powder. I thought it added just that right sense of MAGIC!!
The dimensions for this card are as follows:
Bermuda Bay Base: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Soft Sky: 5 1/4″ x 4″
Cherry Cobbler: 2 1/8″ x 3 7/8″, scrap for scalloped Ovals

I was perusing Pinterest seeing what I could make, and I found a Z fold card by Karen Watts and loved her scene! Of course I had to start making my own! And being me, I HAD to add to what I saw on her card AND put in my NEW stamp sets that I just got from the NEW catalog by Stampin’ Up!
I wanted to use the Bike Ride, have the bike going along the beach, and since I had a beach I HAD (again) to use High Tide for the water! High Tide is the greatest stamp set for making water! And since I was using the water I also used the grass, birds on the beach and the birds that are flying! Birds!! For those that know me everytime I use the word/stamp birds, I think of Bambi and say it like Flower said it……..BIRD! 🙂
I also wanted to pull in Seasonal Layers with their Beach Chair! That is such a fun set! Ok, I admit it…….Stampin’ Up! has waaaaaaay too many cute sets! They are fun to play with and BOY they are great for making a story!
Here is my card closed:
Here is the card partially open:
There’s the chair! And now open all the way:
I LOVE how it came out, don’t you!? Not sure what sentiment to put on, or if it needs one……what do you think? Sometimes when I send out my greeting cards, I don’t put a greeting on it, since I want to say what I want to say and let the card speak for itself! Do you ever do that?
Bermuda Bay: 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 8 1/4″, 1 1/2″ x 11, scored in the same places (when you put on card, the folds are opposite)
Whisper White: 5 1/4″ x 4″, 2 1/2″ x 4 (x’s 2), 5 1/4″ x 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″ x 1 1/4″ (xs 2) and scraps for stamping and chair.
I used a post it for the sun, JUST be sure and cut the circle in HALF before you sponge sun! LOL For some reason my mind couldn’t fathom that when I stamped the ocean that it would cover the circle….kind of hard when I didn’t take off the circle when I stamped the ocean OVER the circle! Let me tell you, for some reason (though I’ve done it before) it didn’t dawn on me to cut the circle in half since I was ONLY using half of it to mask the sun. Sheesh!! I’m sure I am the ONLY one that happens to!
