Happy HUMP DAY…..I have a SSS card for you that hopefully will make you smile! What the heck is an SSS Card?


Sweet…Simple & Special(my kinda card if I must say so myself)


This is the card that I made for our Swap at convention when the PALS were together Friday evening. With the limitations of mobility with my hand I knew that I needed to create a card that would be do-able to mass produce but also reflect my style…I think I accomplished that!

Many of you know that I love to make kits and that kits are a big part of my Stampin’ Fun Business….and it is always a treat for me to “hunt out” the perfect stamp set that I want to showcase for a kit

I admit, when I saw the Holiday Catalog…this bundle, Hearts Come Home was definitely going to be a pick for a kit….but then I broke my wrist….oh well!






Here is a little secret and tip….this IS being carried over BUT remember when it gets carried over, it will not be a bundle then….meaning that you will have to purchase the stamp and framelits separately which means it will be more expensive….so the moral of this story is, I would get it now as face it – it’s a classic!







It simply cannot be any easier than this. I personally love to put Very Vanilla and White together….so rich and classic. How about you?

I am sure that you have seen many samples on the internet using these framelits and people put color behind the windows…(I say wow….you have patience) but to me, it can stand on its own like you see here.

Clean, classic ….CRISP! I took a scrap of Garden Green and using the framelit I just popped out the green tree and used green glue to adhere it . (Makes a BIG different…..right???)







Do you remember what I blogged about yesterday?….CLICK HERE to see it as it is was all about our new stamp positioning tool, STAMPARATUS……

While we do not have this gem yet….(but TOMORROW you can reserve yours) I do have a MISTI that I use. A stamp positioning tool is a HUGE help with stamping clean and straight sentiments each and every time….

When I did this I stamped the sentiment (using the MISTI) and then took it to the Big Shot with the framelit and PRESTO…..a beautiful and special element!

Are you wondering where the Red Rhinestone came from? EASY – I took a Red Sharpie and simply colored it….POOF…a special embellishment!







Lastly you can see this beauty all pulled together! I adore this card and YEP, it is going to be one that I will make more of and send. Using the Quilted Christmas DSP Stack was a perfect choice for a POP to this classic.

There are so many paper choices in this 6 X 6 pack….you can’t go wrong! Even though this is a 4 1/4″ square card….you CAN use one of our regular envelopes to mail this but you know me…I adore making my own envelopes!







There you go! I can’t wait to hear how you like this super simple card. I was tickled as it is right up my alley in my style. I am just goo-goo over using 2 neutrals together, so classic!

I will pop on tomorrow to remind you about RESERVING YOUR STAMPARATUS……I will be “johnny on the spot”  at 2 p.m. (Central) / 4 p.m. my time (EASTERN)





Enjoy the day…this week is zooming by and I feel like a 3 armed paper hanger trying to get caught up on “stuff”…all in good time! I admit, I missed my fur babies while I was gone…..

Milo has been attached to me since I returned home….next time – I might just sneak him as I had so many people ask me, “How is Milo”….my answer….PERFECT, thanks!
