Sweet Pea & SSC172

I was lucky enough to be given a pack of Stampin’ Up! Sweet Pea DSP & Stitched Felt Sweet Pea flowers (only available in US A but now retired) for my birthday from Sue – my cousin’s wife.   So thought I’d better do a card & post to show her I’ve started to use this gift.

I love using Stamping 411 sketches to inspire me, so todays card is based on their latest sketch – SSC172


This is my card.  I made my leaves with the wing from the Two-Step Bird punch & the stems I have run through the Crimper just for some extra texture.

Card: Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Sweet Pea DSP stack (USA retired)

Ink: Chocolate Chip

Stamp: Curly Cute

Other: Crimper, Two Step Bird punch, 1″ stitched Chocolate Chip ribbon (retired), Stitched Felt Sweet Pea flowers (USA retired)

I also made this card with the JAI challenge in mind, which is to make the card feminine, beautiful & using PINK – keeping in mind the Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon Day coming up.  Their challenge was also to use BLING so come back tomorrw for a look at the other card I made which does include bling.

Until later, happy stampin’


Happy Birthday Melissa

Note: For some reason this post didn’t go up Friday…. which was really Melissa’s birthday!

Firstly I must apologise for being MIA over the last week.  I’ve been struggling with no Mojo and just being so tired, so when I got home from work I had given up just sitting at my desk staring at my supplies….. lol

Anyway I made myself get creative as it’s my lovely sister-in-law’s birthday today & although I’ve tried to ring her a few times I seem to keep missing her.  Oh well she has lots of birthday wishes to listen to as each time I called I left another birthday wish…. lol

I thought I’d share the card I’d made for her.  I have used some hostess stamp sets here, so if you like them then please let me show you how you can earn them.


Card: Always Artichoke, Regal Rose, Whisper White

Ink: Regal Rose

Stamp: Punch Potpourri (Level One hostess set), Occasional Quotes (Level Three hostess set)

Other: Basic Rhinestone Jewels, Two-Step Bird punch, Boho Blossoms punch, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, Swiss Dots non SU embossing folder (only because I haven’t purchased the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder yet)

I hope she likes her card, what do you think?

Until later, happy stampin’
