Whoooo Is Your Lovely Friend?

So, whooo is your lovely friend? Whoooo can you send this sweet card to?

Last night I made this little she-owl.  I had seen a card where the owl eyes were made with roses.  I intended to case it, but when I got to my shop, I decided to use my NEW framelits again.  I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the stitching detail that this framelit set has.

This special owl is quite sassy.  The Designer Series Paper is flashy,  those splashes of gold really catch your eye.  To add to the sassiness my owl is wearing a little fancy apron trimmed in vanilla and black lace ooh la la.  Plus a flower is poking out from the pocket.

I think this card is perfect to send to a lovely friend.   I stamped the words Lovely and Friend directly onto the cute ticket cut-out.  I stamped the words off to the left so that I could add that adorable heart.  I think I told you before,  that I would be using that heart a lot.  I knew I would.

This color is so soft ( it is called Powder Pink) , I just love it.  I know I know, I love everything.  Yes, that is true I do love everything, I can’t help it Stampin’ Up! products are so awesome.

This owl was fun to put together and bring to life.  I know whooo I’m sending this one to.  I have a very special friend whoooo is sassy, splendid and whooo I adore.  I think she needs to know how lovely I think she is.

My super stampers are going to get to make this she-owl at class. Let me know if you want to make her also.  You can come to class or schedule another time that works for you.

Hello again,

Today I played with the Designer Series Paper from the Share What You Love Suite again.  But this time I partnered it with the Pretty Park Framelits and the coordinating stamp set Sitting Pretty.

The first thing I made was this gatefold card and belly band.  If you are not familiar with belly bands they are a band that you slip on and off your project to keep it closed.  This belly band is made using the Old Olive dsp from the pack.   For this card, I embellished the band instead of the front of the card.  I used the park bench, the bird a cute heart and another piece of coordinating dsp from the pack.  The dsp that has the script on it happens to be my favorite.

See this is how the card looks when you slip off the band.  The card opens like a gate to reveal your sentiment and message.

After I was done was making the card I covered a little notebook and made another belly band.  I just love it.  I need to make another one because I want one for myself.


This is the back of the notebook.  I just can’t believe that all of the designs in this pack flow together so nicely.

I used Fresh Fig cardstock to cut out the park bench.  I love love love that color.

Here is the front of the notebook with the bellyband on.  The little bird and heart sitting on the bench are just so sweet.  I’m thrilled with these framelits.  One of the reasons I love them so much is that there are three hearts in the set.  Now if I need multiple hearts I can make three at a time.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the corner rounder punch.  It’s new too.  I used it to make the rounded corner on the dsp.  With the corners rounded the paper fits the book perfectly.

You all have a great weekend.  Thank you for stopping by.  I love your visits and love your comments even more!

Hey friends, I feel compelled to share this story with you.  It’s about the fabulous thinlits “Stitched Labels” and my rush to use them.

I received my bundle a couple of days ago.  I was so excited to get it that I opened the pack grabbed the four thinlits that you see in the picture below and started to create.  I was thrilled with the embossed images that we can now create when using the embossing mats.  I also love all the detail in these thinlits.  After creating a couple of cards I was completely satisfied with the product.

Last night I picked up my thinlit pack so that I could transfer them from the Stampin’ Up! packaging to my magnetic sheet.  To my surprise there we were SIX more thinlits in the pack.  DUH!!!! how did I not realize that?  My goodness, I’m totally over the moon about these stitched thinlits, all of them are fabulous.  There are 9 thinlits in the pack, not 4, holy cow….. I can’t believe I was completely happy with 4.   After my discovery, I had to use some of the other thinlits right away.  The photo below shows the complete set.

Here is the coordinating stamp set… Isn’t it great?


This is the card that I came up with.  I started by using the cross stitch border thinlit.  This thinlit works perfectly on your layer pieces.  I’m sure there are many other ways to use it.   This is just one idea.

I used the line stamp and Cherry Cobbler ink to suggest the lines in the America flag.  In this setting, the stamp took on a folk art look.


Here is a close-up, look at the darling heart and the Night of Navy circle.  I love the size of the cutouts in this circle.  They allow the thin ribbon to be weaved in and out easily.  I love the way the circle turned out.  Adding ribbon reminds me of  4th of July bunting.  And that little heart, I see myself using it all of the time.  It’s the cutest.  The stitching really stands out.

I keep laughing at myself.  Thank goodness I opened up my thinlit pack all the way.  I will be opening my thinlit and framelit packs completely before I start to work with them from now on.  Lesson Learned!

Make A Difference Stamp Set

Hello everyone and welcome back.  Yesterday was a big day for me.  My Stampin’ Up! pre-order arrived.  I was actually not at home when it came, but I knew it had arrived because I get UPS updates on my phone.  TORTURE!!!!!


One of the things I wanted MOST was the NEW Big Shot Embossing Mats.   These mats are awesome, they allow you to emboss with most of your thinlets and framelits.  I’ve experimented with my stitched framelits and my dragonfly thinlits and they both work.   So I’m excited.  I love the embossing folders, for me, they are a must-have.  Now I can emboss even more images.  CRAZY HUH?


Above I made a card using my New Stitched All Around Bundle on page 17 of the NEW catalog.  I also used the Make A Difference alphabet set.  I used Blueberry Bushel ink to stamp with and I used Night of Navy ribbon and cardstock.  Those two colors look great together.  The reason I tell you this is in case you have Night of Navy ribbon and cardstock there is really no need to order the Blueberry Bushel cardstock right away because Night of Navy will do the trick.


Now let’s focus on the embossing on these two cards.  I used the NEW embossing mats with the Big Shot to create this look.  It is easy to do.  I have a few hints and tricks on how to do this with ease.  That is what I’m for right?  It is my job to figure out the easiest way to do things and then share them with you so that you can get things done right the first time.

Now notice that I personalized these two cards.  I used the Make A Difference alphabet set to do this.  I’m thrilled to be able to add names to cards and have it look so nice.  I have hints and tricks for using this alphabet set too.

This Mother’s Day card is for my mother-in-law.  I did mess up on the word mom the first time so I covered it up.  Now that I have my little tricks and hints in my pocket I’m confident I can stamp any name or word that I want to without error.

I made my daughter Allison’s card after finishing Barbara’s.  I will be sending it off to her later today.  My daughter is an angel walking on earth. She works at an assisted living home (only 16 residents live there) and the love and cares that Allison gives to her patients are above and beyond.  Of course, I can’t give detail but I can say all the families she cares for and guides through these hard days are blessed to have her.  Allison is my sunshine.  To say I’m proud of her is an understatement.  Now it is my job to make sure she knows how I feel.   This card will remind her.

Enjoy your day, thanks for visiting and don’t forget, LIVE LOVED ~ Beverlee
