It’s time for my Retiring Set Rewind! There are so many fabulous stamp sets about to retire, and I don’t want any stampers to miss out on getting them before they’re gone. Top of the list for today?

Here are the project directions for the Marker to Stamp Technique on these cards:

Looking for wedding table decor? Baby Shower centerpieces? These are Valentine centerpieces headed to my local library for table decor, but it’s a fun idea that can be applied to any occasion: Rosettes!
To make these easy Valentine centerpieces, I used the Designer Rosette Die from Stampin’ Up! (see it online) and the More Amore Designer Series Paper (see the paper online – 129309). If you’ve never made them before, be sure to check my Designer Rosette Die Tutorial.
For this size of picks, I cut one full strip of designer paper with the rosette die, then cut it into 3 pieces before folding and gluing (TIP: hot glue for speedy rosettes!).
- Big Shot (see it online – 113439) — see more Big Shot ideas on my blog
- Designer Rosette Die (see it online) — see more Designer Rosette ideas on my blog
- Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit (see it online)
- Occasions Alphabet ( see it online – 123598)
Here’s another idea for the Designer Rosette Die same shapes (cut into 3 strips per rosette die-cut) but different paper.
Have fun with these!
Happy Stamping, and Happy Valentine’s Day!!

The Oval Accent Die has been a popular one this year – I’ve certainly used it lots. (see the die online – 127005). But I’m most excited about the way the die coordinates with the new Borders Scoring Plate (see it online – 126192)!
It could hardly be simpler – this was one of the great tricks shared at the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference in Orlando last week.
And I’m all about quick and simple tricks that take my stamping to the next level!

I have SO many ideas from the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference in Orlando last week, but there were a couple that jumped out at me. This is the time of year to be thinking of little treats for neighbors and friends, or for school classroom parties, and here’s a sweet & simple treat to make and take!
The steps couldn’t be simpler.
- Snip apart the pre-cut heart paper (makes 32 large hearts per package) (see the paper online – 129309)
- Glue each heart to the front of a flat lollipop
- Choose the “express” solution or the “artisan” version:
- Express: use the Hearts a Flutter Framelits (see them online - 130159) with your Big Shot (see it online – 113439) to cut small hearts from the other pages of paper in the More Amore Designer Paper package
- Artisan: stamp with the Hearts A Flutter stamp set and cut with the framelits from the Hearts A Flutter Bundle (see it online – 131097) – *LOVE* the chevron heart from this stamp set! Finish up with a stamped Valentine greeting from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (see it online – 127802)
Voila! Happy classmates and friends! Can’t you see your coworkers loving this treat? The More Amore Product Suite (see it online) is chock full of fun coordinating pieces for your projects.

Lately whenever we walk outside, my son seems to find a fallen leaf that he absolutely MUST take home (he’s 3). I have to admit, the colors are gorgeous and worth appreciating up close. We’re going to have to put a bag for his treasures in the car though, because at this point we have a minivan back seat filled with semi-crushed leaves.
Here’s a card with pretty fall leaves that do not require vacuuming your car. The leaves are from the Gently Falling stamp set in the Holiday Mini Catalog (see it online). The fabric and colors are from the Spice Cake Designer Series Fabric (see it online).
I used 2 techniques on this card:
- Rock N Roll (on the leaves). First ink your stamp with the lighter color ink (here, More Mustard). Then take the inked stamp and gently roll the edges of the stamp around a darker color pad (Old Olive). The stamp will pick up the ink on the edges and you end up with a wonderful two-toned image.
- Tile Panels. I didn’t actually stamp 3 small pieces of card stock for this card. Instead, to make the image look like it flows across the card stock, stamp your images all on one piece of card stock. Then use a paper trimmer to cut the piece into 3 panels, and attach the panels to your card.
The spritz on the background is the Log Cabin Smooch Spritz (see it online), which gives the card a nice texture, plus a little hint of glitz (since the spray is metallic). Finally, the “happy thanksgiving” is from my favorite greetings set, Teeny Tiny Wishes (see it online). Definitely, this is a set that I use all the time.
Need a quick pick-me-up treat for a school event or a coworker gift? These are a snap to make: I’ll share 2 versions. First, the favor uses the Two Tags Die for the Big Shot (see it online) to create a sweet shaped treat wrap. Second, if you don’t have a Big Shot handy, go ahead and add it to your Wish List, then just use a simple Oval Punch to make these favors.
Version #1: Two Tags Die
- Cut two of the wide tags from a piece of Big Top Birthday Designer Series Paper (see it online).
- Attach the two tags at the bottom with Sticky Strip.
- Add your treat to a Small Cello Bag (see it online), fold over the top of the bag and secure bag with SNAIL adhesive.
- Bring the two tags up to the top and tie with Real Red Satin Ribbon at the top. Add a Rhinestone Brad in the pre-punched hole.
- Stamp the cute bear (I love him!) from the Tagtastic hostess stamp set (see it online) in Real Red and punch him out with the Decorative Label Punch (see it online). Attach with Stampin’ Dimensionals
And here is Version #2: Well Worn
Instead of the Two Tags Die, just fold 3 x 8″ piece of Designer Series Paper (Well Worn shown here — see it online). Pinching the tops together, use the Large Oval Punch to punch through both sides at the same time. Secure with ribbon.
It’s the “chocolate” part that got your attention, isn’t it? Yes, you can admit it to me. I’d be in the same boat. Well, I would have been, except that I’m loving the Petal Cone Die so much that it would have been enough to make me check out this blog post!
The scallop half-circle and the banner piece are from the Petal Cone die. And the “Happy St. Patrick’s Day” is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (see it online). Talk about a great stamp set–Teeny Tiny Wishes has greetings for LOTS of occasions and I find myself using it all the time.
You probably recognize the Owl from Punch Bunch (see some of my other samples). And the shamrock is one of my favorite punch creations! Here’s what you’ll need:
- one branch from the 2-Step Bird Punch (see it online)
- 4 hearts from the Small Heart Punch (see it online)
And the Shamrock Directions:
- Trim the two end leaves from the leafy branch piece
- Attach one heart to the remaining leaves to serve as the ‘base’ for the hearts
- Add the 3 remaining hearts to create the shamrock petals
- (and yes, I know that a Shamrock should have 4 leaves…feel free to add a 4th!)
This is a project from one of my home workshops recently. If you’d like to have your own party and get together to stamp with your friends, drop me an email! I’d love to get together and share this project with you in person.
Okay, I’m almost done with these simple projects (see the last few days), and then we’ll be back to the ‘normal’ creations. But until then, I challenge you to get out a Note Card & Envelope and try making a Simple & Sweet Card yourself. (did you know you can buy sets of Note Cards & Envelopes, 20 for $5.95 in the Stampin’ Up! catalog?)
Really, isn’t this a cute way to send a quick note to a friend to let her know you’re thinking of her? A nice change from a txt or a fb dm, don’t you think? (translation: text message or a facebook direct message )
This one is a speedy baby note–too cute!
And finally, a Christmas card that won’t take 10 years to create. **TIP** for this one, stamp first, then punch out the ornaments for best placement.
All you need for these cards is the Every Little Bit stamp set, the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, a pack of notecards & envelopes and the Getting Started Stampin Ink Spots! (check out the shopping list here)
Yesterday morning a friend of mine got a few of her friends together for a “Coffee & A Card” party. What a fun morning! She invited her friends who work part time or have flexible schedules to drop their kids off at school, then head over to her house for a short coffee hour and a chance to make a stamped card.
Here is one of the cards we stamped in that short time–it was a HUGE hit! I know it’s beyond simple, but sometimes simple is perfect. The Every Little Bit stamp set is my new FAVORITE! 28 images for EVERY occasion — perfect. Pair it with the Teeny Tiny Wishes greetings stamp set, and you have everything you need.
I heard several ladies mention that they really enjoyed the flexibility and open canvas of stamping a sweet card like this. Think “stamping with no stress, no pressure.” Ah, doesn’t that sound nice?
Don’t get me wrong–I LOVE “Artisan Stamping” too (term coined by my friend Lynsay Mahon), but the Every Little Bit Kit is perfect for a quick or relaxing card session — Lynsay calls it “Express Stamping.”
If you wanted (or you couldn’t help yourself) you could dress up your card with a Scallop Square punched piece and a layer of Getting Started colored card stock to match the ink spots.

As promised, here’s another fun Halloween-themed project, although of course you can do these popular Tri-Fold Shutter cards in pretty much any style. In fact, you can check one out from my recent Stamps in the Mail Club Round, with no Halloween themed products in sight
This is the 2nd project we’re making at Stamp Club with Meg during September. You can still join us on Monday night–just send me an email! The bear uses the Build-A-Bear Stampin’ Up! Bear die and the Stampin’ Up! Kooky Spooky die, both for the Big Shot. If you’re enjoying these, be sure to check out my other Build-A-Bear projects!
Tri-Fold Shutter Card Instructions:
- Cardstock: 5-1/2 x 12”, Score at 2, 4, 8 and 10”.
- Cut the long way at 1-1/2” from each side between the 2 and 10” score lines so you have three strips connected at the ends.
- Fold the whole card zig-zag on the 4 and 8” score lines, then invert the top and bottom strip at the 2 and 10” score lines as shown.
- Decorate each panel as desired.
