Nature's Harvest

This is a card we made at my stamp club meeting on Sunday!  It was my favorite card--and it came from a card I saw on Instagram by Jan Clothier.  You can see her card HERE.

Cc feb 6a

This is a very simple card to make!  Start with the mask from the Butterflies & Flowers Set--these are so pretty, and did you know you can emboss with them as well?!!!   Back to the card:  using your mask and a blending brush, as some color to the Very Vanilla panel--notice that we didn't try for a specific shape--be free with it!   Then, cut your shapes from the Harvest Dies.  I added color to the coneflower using sponge daubers!  Adhere them, add your sentiment and you have a beautiful card!!

Here are all the supplies we used on this card:

Cactus Cuties

Good morning!  Hope you enjoyed all the love this week!  This morning, I have a fun card using the Cactus Cuties!  When I saw these, I had to have them!  For the design of the card, I used the sketch from Try Stampin' On Tuesday.


I paired it with the paper from the Friendly Hello pack of DSP (you can get it free with qualifying purchase!)

Check out the Fresh Freesia embossed background--I embossed it using the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks!!  Isn't it pretty?!! 

Here's the sketch:

and here are all the products used on today's card:

More Sweet Conversations!!



  • Sweet Talk DSP: 2 ½” x 5 ½”
  • Real Red: 5 ½” x 11”
  • Basic White: 4 ¼” x 5 ¼”, 5 ½” x 1”, scrap for sentiment
  • Real Red Faux Linen Ribbon: 14”
  • So Saffron, Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather – scraps for heart embellishments


  1. Fold the Real Red card base in half, use bone folder to flatten the fold and set aside.
  2. Create a stitched Basic White scalloped border piece from the Basic White strip and the stitched scallop border die from the Scalloped Contours Dies. Adhere it behind the Sweet Talk DSP such that you can just see all the stitching.  Wrap the ribbon around this piece and tie a knot. Trim the edges and adhere this piece to the lower section of the card front.
  3. Stamp “Happy Valentine’s Day” on a scrap of Basic White and die cut using a die from the Ornate Frames Dies. Stamp 3 conversation heart shapes from scraps of So Saffron, Coastal Cabana, and Highland Heather and die cut with the Sweet Hearts coordinating dies. Adhere these pieces to the card front with dimensionals.

Valentine's Ideas!

This week will be all about the love!  Join me all week for some great ideas for Valentine's Day!

This card is so cute--and simple!  I adore the Sweet Talk Suite in the Jan-June Mini Catalog--have you checked it out?


The card base is 5 1/2" x 7 1/2"--score at 4 1/4", creating the shorter front panel.  So simple, but makes for a fun card that's a bit different!
