My son has been asking for weeks if we could get corn on the cob. And I’d been putting him off, saying that it’s just too early — that’s a summer treat. But it’s official, summer must be here, since we had our first corn on the cob of the season this week. It was yummy, too! I’ll admit, I wasn’t too hopeful.
But it gives me one more reason to be thankful for stamping. I can make the Mouthwatering cherries perfectly delicious EVERY time — in any season! Plus with the new Scented Stampin’ Emboss Powder (see it online in Cherry), they even SMELL yummy.
There are a lot of fun tricks on this card:
- Make the background stand out with the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder (see some other ideas for this folder)
- The cherries from the Mouthwatering stamp set (see it online) are colored using the Marker to Stamp Technique to get two colors on one image
- To add the scented embossing powder (yum, cherry!) to the stem, I used my Versamarker (see it online). It’s like Versamark ink, but in pen form, so you can add it just where you want the embossing powder to stick.
- Glittery Cherries: there’s always room for glitter! The red liquid glitter comes in a bottle: Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details (see it online)
- The brad at the end of the banner is one of the Jelly Bean Brads (see them online) in the Sweet Shop Product Suite (see some other Sweet Shop projects)
- The Labels Collection Framelits (see them online) lend a fun shape to the front panel — and I echoed it with another die-cut in the middle of the card.
- “You’re the BEST” comes from the Perfect Words hostess stamp set (see it online) — a set I find myself pulling out regularly!
Mmmm… more corn on the cob hopefully for us this week. And in the meantime, I’ll be stamping treats that make me think, “summer”!
What’s not to love about the Sweet Shop product suite in the Occasions Mini Catalog? (see it online) Here I’ve used the Sweet Shop Designer Series Paper (see it online) along with the Mixed Bunch stamp set (part of my Stamps in the Mail Club for February). This is actually one of the projects my Stamps in the Mail Clubbers will be making in March! Did you know that LovenStampfuls demonstrators can participate in my Stamps in the Mail Club at a discounted rate?
The colors in the Sweet Shop paper are some of my favorites for this time of year — pretty much direct from the 2011-2013 In Colors (see them online). Something about bright happy colors sure helps when the winter grays outside start to take over!

It’s Sale-A-Bration! You might have heard me mention that already, since it’s my fav part of the stamping year. Here’s a card that I created back in December for my LovenStampfuls Demo Group Holiday Party (check out the party). Yup, we were playing with Sale-A-Bration free stamp sets back before Christmas. Feels like that was at least 4 months ago, right? Time flies! And actually, if you’d like to learn more about joining my Demonstrator family, now is a great time with the special! (learn more)
Here’s a ‘sweet and simple’ card using the pre-cut/pre-scored Note cards & Envelopes (see them online). I used the Scallop Edge Border Punch (see it online) at the bottom edge, then put a layer of Sweet Shop Designer Specialty Paper (see it online) underneath to peek out the bottom.
Stamp set? It’s the Sale-A-Bration exclusive set, Sprinkled Expressions (available for free when you order $50 any time between now and March 31st). If you’ve never experienced the joy of Sale-A-Bration, be sure to check out the details here!
The heart is stamped on the front on the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch layer and the greeting is inside: “LOVE you just the way you are”. The coordinating Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon is a perfect match!
I’m completely in LOVE with the Note Cards & Envelopes — here are a whole bunch of ideas on my blog for using them. They’re ready to go whenever I need them–pre-scored with envelopes included. And the smaller card size makes the ‘sweet & simple’ style easy to execute.
