Love Life Card

I have anotheLove Life Cardr quick share before I call it a night!   I don’t know what it was about this Stamp set but I really like it!

Maybe it’s because of the Lemon. Being that my maiden name was “Limon”.  I don’t know BUT I just knew I had to have it!

Here is the first card I made using this set that you can get FREE only during Stampin’ Up!s Sale-A-Bration with a $50.00 order. Ending March 31st 2015!

I also used the Blendabilities for the background on this card!  If you have any questions please feel free to comment or email me yvonne@yvonnesstampingplace.com.  Thanks for stopping by and as always….

Your Awesomeness card

Flower PatchHi Stampers! 

Well here is my last swap from Convention! I love how this turned out and this is yet again another new stamp set that I just LOVE! It's called "Flower Patch" #134207 it's a photo polymer set which I'm getting used to using. I love how they are completely see through!

Of course I had to top off this card with Dazzling Diamond glitter and just a little more bling with a couple of Rhinestones in the middle of the flowers just to give it that extra touch!

Enjoy your Saturday stamp something! Thanks for stopping by!

Summer is over and school is back…

Hi Stampers! Well it's back to school for my son! He's not to excited but he's surviving his first week back!  It's already Friday so this week just flew by!

Well I had a super busy summer after Convention. Lot's going on, baseball, camps for my son and a super nice vacation to see my daughter back in Tennessee!  That was fun. Plus I had another project I was working on which you can see HERE!

Now it's time to buckle down and get back to blogging, stamping and sharing it all with you! So many new products to share I just love this new Catalog! 

First up I'm going to share my swap cards and then in the next few days I'll show you some of the awesome swaps I got at Convention and some great highlights!  To see the latest promotions from Stampin' Up! Click HERE!

Welcome Baby


This was one of my card swaps for Convention! I just love how this turned out. This color combo just worked together don't you think?

This is a new set called "Something for Baby" #134030 clear mount set. It also has a Framelit set to match!

I just love how Stampin' Up! bundles up the product so you save money!


Just for you


Next is the "Just for you" card which was another swap and yes another new stamp set!

  The set used here is called "Work of Art" #134111 wood set. You will see me using this set TONS! The possiblities are endless!

YUMM-O. It was delicous.  If you are in the Ventura, Oxnard, Camarillo or Simi Valley areas you've got to check it out.  They also have a website www.yolandasmexicancafe.com.

B Happy Card Ok, on to todays Card. As I said I've been playing around with some of my retired sets so here is another one I made last night with Stampin' Up!s Just B. There is so much you can do with this set. This layout was from a Previous Class I had at Easter Time. The layout is from Andrea Walford (if you  are a Demo click on the Demo to Demo button on the Left hand side) check out her wonderful class planners!  Enjoy and tomorrow I'll be showing a few samples from "A Little Birdie Told Me".

Look “Hoo’s” Graduating…

Graduation Owl Card Ok, so it's been a super long weekend and I did get LOTS done! I am really liking how this card came out! Guess what?? It's not a Side or Stair Step Card! LOL!!!  My friend Sharon has crowned me not only "Queen" of step cards but I am now the "Ambassador" per her comment on the post below. LOL!!  I Love it…Oh and yes she will be right behind me. You've got to check out her card HERE! Ok, so where was I???

Oh, yes this card was a fun one to make using Stampin' Up!'s great punches. Again I'm using my daughter's School colors.  I got this idea from our Stampin' success magazine we get every month. There was the cute lil "Owl" staring at me ; ) it was created by Lyssa Zwolanek. Be on the look out for more of this little guy as He is very addicting to make. Next time I make him his feet are going to be either Only Orange or Pumpkin pie. I think the Tango Tangerine is too Orangey? Or is it just me? Hmmm!!!!

Supplies used: All Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Stamp Set: Great Grads
Cardstock: Bravo Burgundy, Going Gray, Basic Black, Whisper White, So saffron (beak), Tango Tangerine (feet), Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa
Ink: Basic Black, Basic Gray
Accessories: Grograin Ribbon, SU Punches – Scallop, 1 3/4, 1/2, 1/4 (retired) circle punches, Small Tag, Boho Blossoms (feet), 5-petal Flower (beak), Round Tab & word window, Dimensionals

Ok, I think that's it. Back to more stampin!

Keep it Simple Sunday

Upsy Daisy Cards
Ok, so is this SUPER Simple or what???? I saw this on the cover of Stamp It Cards that came out a few weeks ago!  It took me about 40 minutes to do all 4 cards..cutting and everything. 

I used the Upsy Daisy Stamp Set with their sayings and I used all the In-Colors along with Whisper White as being the card base which I cut to measure 4 1/4 x 11. OH and yes the Matching Ribbon too! ; ) Now it's your turn to keep it simple. Questons don't hesitate to call or email me. yvonne@yvonnesstampingplace.com I'd be happy to andswer any questions you may have.
