March Stamp Club: Watercolor Wonder Notecards

The Watercolor Wonder Notecards are already preprinted and prescored. They look like you spent hours and hours water coloring. The envelopes are included. You get 20 notecards for $12.95--that's just 65 cents for one notecard! I love anything that will help me create gorgeous cards with minimal effort. All I did was add a stamp and a few embellishments.  Here I added "hello" from the Four You stamp set. It is a set of four word stamps, hence the name.  In addition to the hello, it has birthday wishes, thank you, and thinking of you.  All good basic phrases for card making!  I also added two butterflies that were punched out, layered together, and embellished with a rhinestone. If you wanted to get a little fancier, you could always add some ribbon.  Happy Watercoloring (wink, wink)!!  Bye for now, Maria

Chalk Label

Framelits can be used for other things besides cardstock like this chalk label using the Labels Framelits Collection.  Add your chalk label to a jar with some ribbon for a great gift.  Of course, if I was giving this as a gift, I would add some candy or chocolate.  Bye for now, Maria

Paper Pumpkin Organization

If I am nothing else, it is organized!  My Paper Pumpkin stamps and instructions are no different! Staples actually has smaller binders and sheet protectors--just the perfect size for the instructions that come in the kits. 

From the card kits, I place one of the cards on the back side of the sheet protector--for future reference, I guess. 

 Happy Organizing!  Bye for now, Maria

Happy Valentine's Day with the Flower Spiral

Happy Valentine's Day!  Here's a bouquet for you that will never wilt!  I showed it to my hubby, and he said, "Good.  Now, I don't need to get you flowers for Valentine's Day!"  He didn't really mean it though.  He always remembers to bring flowers for special occasions and just because too--he's good like that!

This bouquet was made with the new Spiral Flower Originals Die and the Big Shot.  Oh my gosh!!!  I love it!!!!  It is super cool and super easy!!!  All you need is cardstock, floral stems from the craft store, and a container for display.  My container is a sugar shaker from the dollar store.  Happy Creating!  Bye for now, Maria

Envelope Punch Board

One thing I love to do with my retired DSP hoard is create envelopes!  I think my hand-stamped cards deserve to have equally beautiful outside coverings instead of just a plain, white, yucky envelope. Don't you?  Plus, it gives the mail carries something to look at!  The envelope punch board makes it easy to create envelopes. Tells you all the sizes right on the front of the board.
