Hello Cupcake - thank you card by Pure Innocence - MFT / Stampin Up and me


Hi dear Stampers.

Welcome to a new post on my blog. Sharing the cards I create is always so much fun. I know how much I get inspired by all your lovely cards out there and I am glad that I have this little place on the web as well.




I decided to combine 2 challenges for this card. Ann's theme 'Thankful for Spring' Challenge of this week at the Paper Players and the Curtain Call's Inspiration Challenge: 'Perfectly Peach'. 


I thought this sweet little girl in her Spring/Summer dress was perfect for the Paper Players theme Challenge. So I inked up my 'Hello Cupcake' image from the Pure Innocence stamp set of MFT.

 The background stamp that you see is from Stampin Up, called: 'Hardwood'. I used the Pool Party and Basic Grey ink to give it some depth.


Well, I have some sweet kids, that need to go to bed, so I will keep it short and sweet today.



Inky hugs, Pauline

Peaceful Petals - Birthday card by Stampin Up and me.


Hi dear Stampers.

I was so excited to create and to give this card to my dear friend this last weekend. She means the world to me and I am so thankful for our friendship. .



I had inked up my Peaceful Petals Stampin Up stamp set for the first time. What a beauty of a stamp set. These images are so well done and I loved the colouring part. It is such soothing thing to do :). 


The dear Jaydee from the talented Paper Players gave us a brilliant layout to work with.  Her Sketch Challenge #184 was really fun to work with. And I am so happy how my card turned out. I will for sure keep this sketch in mind.



Birthdays are good for you.

The Catered Crop ladies have a Birthday theme on their blog, so this card will be added to their list of beauties as well!

Well, that was my little post of today and as always I super duper love your little comments, they really make my day :)

Inky hugs, Pauline

Happy Watercolor thank you card by Stampin Up and me


HI dear you.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I love to have you visit on my blog.

I am really thrilled about this card I created today. I love the vibrant colors and the sweet cuteness that comes along with it, while using them. 

The sweet 'Curtain Call Challenge Inspiration' Ladies inspired me to play along this week with their beautiful 'Cuppa Cocoa' cards. I loved each one of them.

& I have to admit, they had me with: cocoa :)


For the first time I inked up my new 'Happy Watercolor' Stampin Up set. I know, this set will be a keeper. It has beautiful flowers and the cutest sayings.  

I am sure you agree when you take a peek at this card.



I love the different layers that bring this sweet taste of dimension to my card.


These cute banners were as easy as 1-2-3 with my new banner punch from Stampin Up. So, so clever.



I hope you enjoyed my take on the challenge :)

Have a beautiful rest of your weekend.

Inky hugs, Pauline

My umbrella by Pure Innocence MFT and me.


Hi dear Stampers.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope this post finds you all well.

There has been some changes in my life as a Stampin Up demonstrator.

After many years, I decided with many mixed feelings, to stop being a Stampin Up demonstrator. The reason is, because I know that the time I spend working on the business side of it, was really cutting into the time that I wanted to spend on the 'creating- side' of it. Also, for me, I know that I will overspend, if I try to just do it as a hobbyist. 


+ I was very ready to start using some other crafting products, then just the Stampin Up goodies that SU allows us to use as SU demonstrators.  Also my photography hobby is really starting to take a lot of time as well and I just don't have the time to do it all, anymore.

Stampin Up as a company has thought me a lot. They are one lovely and caring group of people and they have a great bunch of beautiful products. That I will continue to love, while I craft my heart out.



On my card of today, I used the 'My Umbrella' stamp set from MFT. So super cute. I love that tiny face of this little girl.



I used the layout of this weeks card Sketch Challenge #161 from My Favorite Things. It is the first time I am joining those lovely ladies.

Inky hugs, Pauline
