Blossom Punch Embellishments

Stamp With Trude
I've been playing with the Stampin' Up! Blossom punch again. This time I am making a bunch of blossoms that can be used in scrapbooks or on cards. These are quite quick to make.

Spring isn't too far away...I am pulling out my spring colors and making pretty spring projects. Are you ready for spring yet? Check out the Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog. It will inspire you!

Everything Eleanor Thank You Card

Stamp With Trude
I've been wanting to try making something with Stampin' Up!s new filter paper. So today I got my fingers inky, used the blossom punch to cut out some filter paper flowers and created this card for Pals Paper Arts challenge 151. Here's this week's sketch.

The label I used was stamped from Everything Eleanor, then I stamped the swirl from the same set. You can check out the set in my online store by clicking HERE It is another beautiful set from Stampin' Up!.
Should have used some gloves. I had some within reach! Now I have Pacific Point and Not Quite Navy pinkies!

Secret Garden Gift Set

Stamp With Trude
Here's my new tutorial for January 2013.
I used the Secret Garden stamp set from Stampin' Up! for the flowers and the sentiments are from a stamp set that will be available during Sale-a-bration that starts on January 22nd and continues through March 22nd. The set is called Bloomin' Marvelous and it is going to be one of my favorites. The sayings fit perfectly in the Large Oval punch.

If you need a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I would love to be your demonstrator!

Hearts a Flutter Pennant Card

Hearts a Flutter, Stampin' Up!, stamp with Trude, valentine
Here's another card using Hearts a Flutter, one of the new Stampin' Up! stamp sets. I am getting quite a bit of mileage from this set! The elements look so simple and yet there are so many ways to combine them and use them.

I entered this card in the Freshly made challenge. Thought I would play along with some challenges to get the ideas flowing. Check back to see the future challenges that I enter and play along!

valentine, stamp with Trude, Stampin' Up!, Hearts a Flutter
I call this my 3 Hearts Valentine. I made it with the Hearts a Flutter stamp set by Stampin' Up! It's one of the NEW sets in the NEW Spring Mini Catalog.

The Happy Valentine's Day stamp is from Stampin Up's annual catalog. It is from the Wacky Wishes set which is a hostess set. You can get it for hostessing a party that total's $150.00 It can even be an internet party or a pass-the-catalog around party!

Use Very Vanilla card stock and Primrose Petals card stock for this card. The Very Vanilla works really well with the creamy color of the crochet trim.

If you don't have a demonstrator and would like a new spring catalog, I would love to be your demonstrator. Send me an email at

You Are Loved Valentine Card

Stamp With Trude
This card was made using the You Are Loved stamp set by Stampin' Up!
I did not design this card or photograph it. I like the layout and use of the framelit to scallop the edges of the white card stock. The designer also used the heart framelits to cut out the hearts. I think it is great that Stampin' Up! has the heart framelit set so that we can cut out perfect hearts. I've folded paper and freehand cut many hearts in my day, but this really classes it up. Love it!
