Here you go…it is time for our 2 day weekend post! If you are new to my blog, welcome …..but let me fill you in about the weekend posts! On Saturday’s I share a project that is rather simple and then tomorrow….please POP back and see how I stepped it up.

Todays card showcases the NEW Photopolymer Bundle, Beautiful Bouquet. It is just that – BEAUTIFUL! I know, I know what many of you are thinking….another floral stamp…..yep – you are right but I invite you to look at it a bit deeper!

Do you SEE all of the Framelits? This is the answer to many of your “fussy cutting wishes” – This stamp set is chocked full of amazing stamps in a variety of sizes but to have the matching framelits – YES….we are all doing the happy dance….





Before we get to pictures…I hope that you can see the endless options you will have with this bundle. I adore an offering when it has part of the framelits that are perfect “fillers” that do not require stamping (like the below pear pizzazz leaves) – these are PERFECT to tuck in here and there and also great to cut many of and put them in a baggie for a rainy day!

There are just a ca-zillion ways to have fun with this bundle and the sentiments…..another keeper. Here is a great idea for you – when you see a new bundle go ahead and do a search for it in Pinterest…..or Split Coast Stampers – these are great sources for additional ideas but I think that you see the potential!







I have been really getting to know the new DSP’s with all of the cutting I have been doing! How about this FUN and bold stripe….how can you not love a great paper like this – Happy dance – HOMERUN!!!!

When I sit down (actually I like to stand) to create – I often let the liner for my envelope to tell me how to create a card! YEP, that is how the color scheme happened….I just looked at the colors that coordinated and BAM…stamp away!










I haven’t “scored” for a while and I think that it adds a fun interest to a card. I honestly like to use the simply scored when doing this rather than the trimmer….just a personal preference as I feel I can get a “deeper impression” with the score lines. Doesn’t it just give a fun element and texture?






Pool Party is such a FUN and UPLIFTING color to work with. Do you remember earlier in the week we were chatting about having fun with different colors? Well…Pool Party is one that looks fantastic with neutrals but then add another POP of a bold color and the WOW happens in a jif!

I can honestly say that Stampin’ Up! Cardstock is the best…..and here is a reminder for those of you that are just getting started with this Stampin’ fun that we do……you can purchase the color collections in “bundled offerings” getting just 2 sheets of each color of paper offered for just $8.00 a collection…..(Please see the lineup of products at the end of the post) This really is a great way to get our paper!







I hope that you have a great weekend and I hope that you pop back in tomorrow to see the changes I did to step it up a wee bit…either way…today’s card or tomorrows….you will be happy as this bundle is a “keeper” and the sky is truly the limit!

Is anyone doing anything fun today? Today is the Belmont Stakes Horse Race… Triple Crown winner this year but it still is wonderful to see these magnificent horses run and watching them on TV!
