Mother's Day card using Remarkable You stamp set from Stampin' Up!

  • Silver Embossed Mother's Day Card
  • Join us for Card Class this Saturday

Remarkable You Stamp Set

Digging through my stamp shelves to clear out space for my Stampin' Up! preorder from the June 1 catalog arriving later this week, I came across one of my favorite retiring sets. . .  Remarkable You.  Playing with this set is like taking a walk down memory lane.  This set creates stunning cards.  I'm so sad that it is the last chance some of you will have to get this set.  In three weeks, the remaining retiring stamp sets will disappear from the catalog.  Be sure to order this set by May 25 if you plan to add it to your collection.  

I'm using this set to make a fast, simple Mother's Day card.  It is one of the cards we'll make in my card class this Saturday.  

I began with a thick Whisper White Base card.  Then I used a layer of Whisper White dry embossed with the Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  

The image from the Remarkable You stamp set was first stamped in VersaMark and then covered with Silver embossing powder.  Then I used my heat Tool to set the embossing powder. 

Flower created with Silver Embossing Powder

I selected a sentiment from the Occasion catalog set called, "A Mother's Flair," and stamped it in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. 


The ribbon is a 1/8" silver ribbon, and it is tied in a simple knot.  This is such a simple card, yet very elegant in its simplicity.

Stampin' Up! Lilies Easter Card

  • Remarkable Lilies
  • Backyard critters
  • Have you check the retiring list?

Remarkable You

Its getting awfully close to Easter and I decided the lilies from Remarkable You stamp set was an appropriate stamp set to use today.  The ham, green beans and baking potatoes are in the fridge and its time to settle in for the holiday week end.  Nothing says Easter to me more than navy and green.  I must have had an Easter Outfit with those colors as a child, because as soon as I put these colors together, it shouted "Easter Outfit" to me.   

I found these Night of Navy dotted paper in the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper pack from the current main catalog.  I matted the Designer Series Paper with Cucumber Crush, one of the colors retiring June 1.  I'm really going to miss it.  It is such a solid, rich color and works so well with Night of Navy.  I stamped the lilies from Remarkable You and then cut them out and positioned them on an oval die cut.  The oval is matted in Cucumber Crush scallops.  

I tied a 5/8" Cucumber Crush Mini Striped Ribbon across the Lily stems.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes all-sentiments stamp set.  I was thrilled to see this sentiment set will carry over to the June 1 catalog.  It has 24 different wonderful little sentiments.  The Remarkable You set is also carrying over.  So happy these two will live on.    The sentiment is popped up on dimensional and was die cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelit oval dies.  I did a second version of the card with a happy mother's day sentiment and I think the card works for either holiday. 



Stamp:  Remarkable You, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink:  Night of Navy 
Paper:  Night of Navy, Cucumber Crush, Whisper White, Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper
Accessories:    5/8" Cucumber Crush Mini Striped ribbon, Layering Ovals Framelit, Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies, Standard Cutting Mats, Big Shot Precision Plate, Big Shot, Stampin' Scrub, Stampin' Mist, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Dimensionals

Backwoods critters

I was pretty surprised when  this coyote appear in our back yard around lunch time today, and he looked pretty hungry.  Our Australian Shepard and I had been out there 30 minutes earlier.  

With the abundance of rain we've  had this spring, the back yard wildlife has flourished.  The bunnies are chubby, the squirrels are spunky and the bluebirds and cardinals are abundant.  I worry most about the deer who visit at dawn and dusk.  Two are ready to have their babies and a hungry coyote could cause harm to the babies or the mothers.  

I sure hope the rest of the deer herd can protect the soon-to-be mommas.  I'm worried because this morning there was only a single deer visiting our back yard.  We usually see 5 or 6.  Our back yard is a grassy opening in the forest and the deer love to frolic on the small hill and loll around in the grass.  


We'll, while I was writing this post, I'm relieved to say that 5 of our deer are now visiting our back yard.  I'm so relieved to see that they are safe from the coyote visitor from earlier today.
