Its Karen here with my Kennedy Grace post and today I have made a cheerful little card using the "You Inspire Me" stamp set.  I used some of the little floral stamps around the Grateful sentiment.  I stamped and fussy cut some extra little flowers and popped them up of foam before adding the "for our friendship" sentiment on top.  A couple of strips of coloured paper to match the stamping to finish it off.



A simple pretty clean and layered card using my new Stamp Perfect from Hampton Crafts.  I have coveted a Misti from the first time I saw Kathy from the Daily Marker use one a long time ago.  I profess to being a real dummy when it comes to stamping I have to stamp the image several times before I get it right and sentiments...suffice to say I have screwed up many cards because of stamping a sentiment.  But the mini Misti retails here for around $100.00,  thats a lot right.

When a local store advertised the new Stamp Perfect for half the price and free shipping I just couldn't resist.  I will claim its the best $50.00 of craft tools I have ever spent.  I love it and would never have been able to pull off a card like this without it.

  1. Love your Graceful card and that is a perfect moniker for it! I agree about the MISTI!! I got mine and then all my girlfriends were "borrowing" it until Christmas when their loving family got them one! Great tool and can't believe we stamped before owning one! Super tool!

Heartfelt Thanks

Hello everyone!! It's Berina here today with a Thank you card for you.


This looks like a triple stamping, but I used only 1 panel of colored images. I'll walk you through the steps. I took a piece of white cardstock of size 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and stamped the sentiment from the Friendship Blessings stamp set in the center and stamped the flowers repeatedly around the sentiment. I colored the images with Copic markers. With a T-ruler and pencil, I drew rectangles where I wanted to cut and used my paper trimmer to cut. I did the same with a black cardstock panel of size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and used it to matte all the pieces of image panel. Then I adhered the 3 pieces adhered on to each other with foam tape to give some dimension. I added some Nuvo drops in color English Mustard.


I really love how this has turned out. I hope you will give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.

Sweet Birthday

Hello everyone! First of all, wishing you all a very happy new year! It's Berina here today, sharing a beautiful and sweet card using the tic tac toe board for January!


I used the diagonal from the board - Die Cut, Embossing and Flowers. I decided to use the Splendid Roses for the flowers. I stamped the floral image using Memento black ink and colored the flowers with Copic markers. I used V09, V17, V15 and V12 for the flowers and G99, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for the leaves. I loved coloring these flowers. I cut the panel into 4" x 5 1/4". For the sentiment, I decided to go with the "Wishing you a sweet birthday" from the same stamp set. I gold embossed the sentiment and die cut it with a small oval. I colored the edges of the die cut with V15. I took a top folding A2 cardbase and colored the edges of the front with V15. I adhered the image panel on to the card base with glue and attached the sentiment panel with foam tape. I love how this card has turned ou…
