Stampin’ Up! Parisian Blossoms

Parisian Blossoms

The card I’m sharing with you today was made using two designs from Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper in the 2020 Mini Catalog.  

Parisian Blossoms DSP


I began with a base of Pool Party cardstock and then added a layer of Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper.  I layered another smaller piece of Pool Party with another design from the package, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the front of the card.


Abstract Impressions


The sentiment was stamped in Memento Ink using the stamp set, Abstract Impressions. It was cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and a die-cutting machine. I also added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of this piece before adhering it to the front of the card.  To finish the card, I added three Champagne Rhinestones.

Night Before Christmas


My card today features the stamp set Itty Bitty Christmas and our 6″ x 6″ Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper. With all the beautiful designs on this paper, card-making is super easy!


Night Before Christmas


I embossed the sentiment with gold embossing powder and cut it out using my die-cutting machine and the Stitched Rectangle DiesIf you haven’t embossed before, it’s pretty easy. Here are the instructions:

Prepare your cardstock by rubbing the Embossing Buddy over the surface (this helps keep away stray particles of embossing powder).  Stamp your sentiment or image using a Versamark pad. This is very sticky ink and your embossing powder will stick right to it. Sprinkle embossing powder over the stamped image.  Shake off any excess.  Before applying heat to your paper, heat the Heat Tool first so the paper won’t warp (about 10 seconds). Direct the heat over your image and watch the magic happen! 

You’ll find all the products I used to create today’s card listed below. Simply click any of the images to place an order or for more information.

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by! 


Glitter Queens Blog Hop – All About Men

It’s time for the Glitter Queens Blog Hop and this month it’s all about men! I have to admit, it was REALLY hard for me to come up with a card suitable for a man.  Ever since I lost my dad almost ten years ago, I just haven’t been able to make a Father’s Day card. I’ve made cards for my husband but I usually sneak in some feminine touches.  It’s so hard not to add a rhinestone or two!!!  

I tend to give my brother in law gift cards so I made my cards today with him in mind! I made a video last year showing how to create this type of gift card holder which you can view here! (Please note:  many of the products in the video have retired).  (more…)

Dahlia Fold Flower – Picture Tutorial

Dahlia Fold Flower

I promised a picture tutorial for making a Dahlia Fold flower and today’s the day! Making these flowers is very addictive and so much fun.  I will say that at first, I got a little frustrated folding the tiny pieces but with practice it has turned from frustrating to fun. Practicing with larger circles is the key to getting the technique down.  

You can also watch a step by step video for making these flowers by clicking here

Tomorrow my email subscribers will be receiving a PDF version of the directions for making the flower and the directions for today’s card. If you haven’t signed up yet be sure to do it today so you won’t miss out.  You can find the sign up form on the sidebar of my blog where it says “Keep in Touch.”  (more…)
