Treats of Friendship Cards!

Another of favorite stamp sets from our New Seasonal Expressions 2 books is called Treats of Friendship!


I LOVE this stamp set because I LOVE tea, lattes, donuts and FRIENDS! And they make great gift cards for friends too!

These are just some of the cards my clubs will be making this month. I chose our Jackson paper for these cards - I love the blues and browns in this paper pack!


This is a perfect card to add a gift card inside with a pocket or just a glue dot!

I used scraps from our Scaredy Cat paper for the frosting and accented it with our Turquoise Blue alcohol marker and a few sequins from our Oceanside collection.


I used our turquoise blue and clay alcohol markers for the tea bag tag and a few more sequins from the Oceanside collection.


This card is a perfect friendship card for any occasion! I added a little of our Bronze Shimmer Trim and Glacier Twine for accents on this one!


You will want to have this stamp set in your stash to use often over the years! Get yours before it is gone! And the Jackson papers are only available through August!

Supply List

I think I'll go make a cup of tea!
Happy Creating!

Dizzy Circles Cards!

Do you have a copy of our new Seasonal Expressions 2 Book? I not, let me know and I'll get one to you right away.  OR when you place an order on my website, you can add it to your cart for FREE! It's packed with fresh Summer products and lots of great artwork ideas!

One of my favorite new stamp sets in this book is called Dizzy Circles (C1610) for $13.95. You can find it on page 14. Do you remember Spirograph? Most of us had one growing up! Don't these Dizzy Circles remind you of those fun days?

I created a few VERY simple cards with this stamp set by stamping directly on the card base in various colors and adding a few Oceanside Sequins and Glacier Extra Thick Twine. In fact, I was inspired by the sample they had in the book! Their version is a little more clean - fewer spirals. And often times LESS is MORE! But I guess I just got carried away!


I used our 1" circle punch to add a simple 3D sentiment in the center of the Glacier/Lagoon Spiral!


The colors I used coordinate perfectly with our Jackson papers - Cocoa, Glacier, Lagoon, Barn Red and Flaxen.

You can use this same technique of random stamping with all kinds of stamps! Look through your stamps and grab a set that appeals to you (flowers, shapes, sentiments) then grab 3-5 colors and just stamp away! Remember to stamp off of the edge of your card for a more natural look. I'd love to see what you create!

Find these products and MORE on my shopping site here. And be sure to add your FREE copy of our new Seasonal Expressions 2 to your order!
