The Just Believe stamp set has been a staple of my stamping room table for several years. I loved the phrases and the images with this set. I've made many swap cards, class projects, and personal cards with these beautiful images. My first sample is one of the Technique Tuesday cards from last month:
The card features the Framelit Mask technique. There are little pearls inside the flowers, but the camera didn't pick them up.
Here are some of the other cards I've made with this set throughout the years. You can still get this stamp set through JUNE 3rd. Be sure to order from my website – www.stampwithjane.stampinup.net . It is available in clear mount for $25.95 (120543) or wood mount for $33.95 (116948)
Little boys and cars…a match made in heaven!
Today I am sharing a card that would have been perfect to give any of my boys. They loved anything to do with transportation!
One of the best things about My Digital Studio is that colors never retire! I will really miss Not Quite Navy and More Mustard when they leave our color selections with the new catalog. I'll never run out of card stock or ink when I create my cards in MDS!!!
I did some recoloring of the car with this card. What a super-easy way to match the focal image with the Designer Series Paper!
Did you know that May is National Good Car Care Month and Transportation Month?
At last month's Technique Tuesday class, I taught my stampers the Craft White Painted Overlay technique. This is a great way to color in line image stamps. Here is the card we created:
The colors used for this card were Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple, and Primrose Petals – love this combo!
The best way to get out of a card-making rut is to challenge yourself to use a different color combination. Here is a card I made using Wisteria Wonder, Early Espresso, and Gumball Green…
Spring is coming….
Tomorrow I'm hosting my annual Birthday Blowout Stamp-A-Stack. My guests can choose either the "express" option (one card of each for $5.00) or the full SAS option – 12 cards for $15.00. If you live in the area and would like to join us, send me an email! Here are the three cards we will be making:
The first card uses my newest stamp set – SWALLOWTAIL. I've seen some gorgeous examples using this stamp set, and I wanted to give my spin to it. The butterfly punch is new too.
The second card features FEELING SENTIMENTAL, a Sale-A-Bration stamp set, and Parker's Patterns DSP. If you spend $50.00, you can get this vintage-feel stamp set for FREE! Pennants are quite the rage right now in crafting.
The third card is inspired by fellow demonstrator, Mary Fish. I used the Sale-A-Bration stamp set PATTERNED OCCASIONS and the Sycamore Street DSP and Button and Ribbon Pack.
Well, I hope my stampers enjoy making these cards!

At my Technique Tuesday class this month, I taught my customers how to make a Word Window Punch latch card.
Here's how you do it:
I used our fabulous Stitched Satin Ribbon – which you can get for FREE this month with a $40 order!
Last night, I taught this super easy technique to my customers at my monthly Technique Tuesday class. The technique is acrylic block taping. Here is how I prepped my acrylic block:
My husband and kids do a lot of vehicle painting (snowmobiles, go karts, etc.) so I did have LOTS of taping options. You can use basic masking tape and either cut or tear off the right widths for your project.
I inked the taped block in WIld Wasabi and stamped on Certainly Celery card stock. This is the finished card:
I am loving this new For the Birds stamp set. It's just stinking cute!
