I had a class yesterday and we made three cards, one of which I am going to share with you today! I was inspired by Priscilla Ivler. I LOVE getting ideas from others and tweaking it a bit!
Here is the card we made:
Isn’t it stunning?!! It’s not a ‘hard’ card, you just have to work on getting the thinlit to let go of the paper without ripping it. My Die Brush has seen better days and the bristles are falling out! Yay! We get a new one in the NEW catalog!!
Here is the inside:
Everyone at class loved it! And in person it is even prettier than here! I know it’s hard to believe!
This is going to be a quick post today, if you want the dimensions just let me know and I will send them to you!
I was inspired by Daniela Hödl when I made this card! She made this stunning card:
Since I had to translate her blog I wasn’t able to see what size the original was. I didn’t do the entire part that she did, but when I do a scrapbook page this is what I want!!
So, here’s mine:
And the inside:
Ok, I said I was inspired, but I ended up doing it totally different! BUT now I have the other one on my computer to do another time! 🙂
I added pearls to some of the front, they are on the outside of the Medallion and in the middle and right smack dab in the center! It’s hard to see in my picture…….
I used 2 of the New In Colors Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst. For the Berry Burst, I stamped on scrap THEN on my card (this is called stamped off), this gives the Berry two different hues!
The ribbon is #144135, so on June 1st you can order it! Hostess code for this month is: 97H62RVK IF you order from me, I will send you a NEW Catalog! Only US citizens can order from me, so if you need a recommendation from me, I know of a few that might be around you!
The stamp set is: Eastern Beauty #143675

I LOVE sunsets, don’t you? I wanted to make one that was easy but still be stunning…….at least I think so, hopefully you do too!!
I have a video on YouTube walking you through this technique, I hope you check it out here. You can also shop for the products you see in this post and on my videos at my Online Store!
Making a Desert scene was my final one, I had to make FOUR cards with Sunsets! Just couldn’t help myself!
The first one is one I posted on my FaceBook page Let’s Stamp!
It features a lighthouse and this is where my Sunset journey started! I saw a video by Tina Zinck on making sunsets, so off I went!
This was so fun and easy (Thanks Tina!!) That I didn’t stop there! But first let me tell you what I used to make this card!
Stamps: High Tide #143006 Inks: Cherry Cobbler #126966, Watermelon Wonder #138323, Night of Navy #126970, Perfect Plum #126963, So Saffron #126957, Crushed Curry #131173, Crumb Cake #126975, Early Espresso #126974, Chocolate Chip #126979, Whisper White #101731, Momento Black #132708, Versamark #102283 and Sahara Sand #126976 Paper: Cherry Cobbler #119685 – 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, Whisper White #100730 – 4″ X 5 1/4″ Misc: Project Life Corner Rounder #135346, Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine #123125, 1″ circle punch #119868, Gold Embossing Powder #133457
Now, on to the next Sunset Card! This one uses the Lift Me Up Stamp set, but uses the same techniques as on my video.
I love how the Ocean/water came out on this one! This uses the same color palate as the card above. Here are the dimensions for the card stock, since everything else is the same:
Cherry Cobbler 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, Crushed Curry #131199 – 3 1/4″ X 4 3/4″, Cherry Cobbler- 3 1/8″ X 4 3/4″, Whisper White – 3″ X 4 3/4″ and 2″ X 1 1/2″ (for the sentiment).
I also used Dazzling Diamonds #133751, and Fine Tip Glue to make the Dazzling Diamonds stick #138309
What else can I make with this Sunset? I just HAD to make more!! So I pulled out my Trusty set of Lovely as a Tree!!! Love this set!
Again, I used the same colors, just used the Stamp set Sending Thoughts #142965 from the Occasions Catty 2017 and I also used the FREE with Sale-A-Bration ribbon Metallic Gold #143601!
Here are those dimensions:
Elegant Eggplant #105126 – 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, Whisper White 5 1/4″ X 4″
The Elegant Eggplant Ink # is 126969, Gold Embossing Powder #133457
And now for the Final Card, this is the one I made the video on!!
I had so much fun making this one!! Like I said at the Beginning, I LOVE sunsets, by this time you might just believe me! hahahaha
The supplies for this card are:
Stamps: Birthday Fiesta #141500, Thoughts and Prayers #127805, Here for You # 142164 Inks: Watermelon Wonder #138323, Night of Navy #126970, Crushed Curry #131173, Crumb Cake #126975, Early Espresso #126974, Chocolate Chip #126979, Momento Black #132708, Night of Navy #126970, Black Marker Paper: Night of Navy #100867 – 5 1/2″ X 4 1/2″ , Watermelon Wonder #138334 – 5 1/4″ X 4″, Whisper White #100730 5″ X 3 3/4″ Misc: Sponges #141337, Big Shot #143263, Up & Away thinlits #142748
If you love these colors together, make sure and stock up on Watermelon Wonder!! It’s one of the In Colors that is retiring this year 🙁 This is a GREAT color to make your sunsets with! The other reds are either too red, or too dark. It’s doable, but this one just makes it easy!
I hope you enjoyed all my Sunsets, and that you will want to visit me again! I will be making more videos, I am really enjoying it! Make sure you sign up on my YouTube page to be notified when I have another one coming out!

I am having a class this weekend, where Moms bring their daughters to come play at my house!
Every month we make between 2-3 projects, and it is so much fun to see the kids bond and show off how much they are learning!
It’s also great that the Moms get to spend QUALITY time with their daughters!!
My daughter started High School this year and I saw that I wasn’t having that much time with her doing something we could both enjoy. She’s growing up so fast and she’s the youngest of the family and I don’t want to look back with regrets!
If you live near Kernersville NC, Triad area, Winston Salem, High Point or Greensboro send me a message and I can start a class with Your friends and their kids! I highly recommend that the kids be at least 9, Just don’t look back with regrets! 🙂 Below you will see two of the ideas that they can choose from:
Aren’t these just too cute!!!! I also have two cats to let them choose from!! These boxes are so easy and fun!!! I can just see them sitting on my daughters dresser!! And hopefully she is thinking about me when she sees it!!
