In my Facebook Live Take 2, I shared a simple but cute card with the Turtle Friends Bundle. This card goes together quickly. I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies for the Basic White panel and the stitched, detailed circle is from the Tasteful Label dies. Both are favorite die sets of mine – I find myself reaching them time and time again. They are a must have!
Here is the recording of the Facebook Live.
For the FB Live Take 2, I used Garden Green and Crumb Cake for my colors – below is the same card done with Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake. Which is your favorite? We made the Cherry Cobbler/Crumb Cake card as one of the Make and Takes for my June Online Bingo/Craft Event! Such fun!
i featured a Tower Pinwheel Card on my Facebook Live yesterday! This was the first Tower Pinwheel card I made – and I will be making more – they are so fun! I used the Turtle Friends Bundle for this card.
You can watch how I made the tower pinwheel card and one other card here:
I took several pictures of the card so you could see all the different angles! There are four different “pinwheels” – all shown below!
The great thing about this card is that it folds flat and will fit in a regular envelope. Wouldn’t it be cute sitting on a desk or table?
The second card I made was one of the Make and Takes from my June Bingo Event, and also uses the Turtle Friends Bundle.
You can watch the FB Live replay to see how this card goes together. I am loving the Tailored Tag Dies – there are so many uses for tags – and this set is a good one! I added some detail around the focal point of the card with my Stitched With Whimsy dies.
Measurements for the Pinwheel Tower Card:
The “tower” is created with a 4 1/4″ square – scored at 1″, 2″, 3″ and 4″ – this leaves a 1/4″ edge where adhesive is applied to create the tower.
The four sections of the pinwheel at 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4. Layered on these panels are DSP 2 1/2″ x 4″, and Stitched So Sweetly Die cuts.
My card today is super simple – quick and easy! I love the adorable Turtle Friends Bundle – and I love the sentiment used on this card – “Sorry I was slow!!!” Perfect for those “a little late” birthday wishes!
I’ll be sharing more cards with this bundle this week – so be sure to stop back!

The Art In Bloom Bundle has become a favorite of mine from our new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog! It has a super cool new product – one we’ve never had before – called a Hybrid Embossing Folder! It’s awesome! Not only does it emboss a beautiful pattern, it also crops the stamped image at the same time!
I’ve added my FB Live from yesterday below – so please watch it so you can see it in action!
I made three cards – the first just showcased the GORGEOUS embossing folder – it’s a beauty!!! I used a monochromatic color scheme of Fresh Freesia. I can’t stop using this new In Color!!!!
You can watch how I made all three cards here:
The second card I made used Soft Seafoam as the base – and I used the stamps and dies to crop out the leaves and the three flowers.
I am loving the words in this stamp set! “Never not loving you” and “You’re a Rare Find” – such great words.
My third and final card used it all – the stamp set, and the Dies with the Hybrid Embossing folder. This Hybrid embossing folder not only embosses, but also cuts out the three large flowers – all with just one pass through the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine! Wow!!! It’s so cool!
Here’s a close up – I love all the embossed detail!

For my Facebook Live yesterday, I shared two cards using the All Squared Away Bundle. This bundle caught my eye the first time I leafed through our new catalog! My first card is super simple – I used the Stamparatus to ensure perfect placement of the four square stamps and just added a simple panel for the words and a little bit of embellishment.
Have you seen the Loose Flower Flourishes? I adore them! I simply attach them with a glue dot – so easy and a great addition to this simple card.
My second card stepped up the first just a bit – I used the Floral Square Dies (a part of All Squared Away Bundle) to crop a Basic White flower and added it to one of the stamped squares, popping it up with Mini Dimensionals. For this card, I stamped the greeting directly on one of the Pale Papaya stamped square images.
To finish this card, I added a few of the Loose Flower Flourishes.
Be sure to check back this week – I will be sharing a few more ideas with this awesome bundle!
Loving the Well Suited Suite – and the card I made today is quite a contract to the Leprechaun card I made and shared earlier this week! The Bow Tie card is a more traditional masculine card! I stamped the bow tie stamp onto three different patterns from the Well Suited Designer Series Paper and them cropped them with the coordinating die from the Suit & Tie dies. Super cute and easy!
Take a look at my Facebook Live Take 2 from Wednesday to see how the Bow Tie card goes together – plus a Scrubs card complete with Stethoscope.
Made this with my daughter Sarah in mind – she does pediatric anesthesia and thought this would be a great card to send her way!
Can you guess what I used for the part of the stethoscope that would go in your ears?
It’s the top of the neck tie die from the Suit and Tie dies!
Thanks for stopping by today and wishing you a happy weekend!
