Simple Saturday with Snuggles & Smooches


Stampin up stampinup stamping pretty mary fish snuggles & smooches

I’m smitten over the Stampin’ Up! photopolymer (clear) stamps, especially the Snuggles & Smooches stamp set.  I used it for the funky little background (heat embossed in white) on today’s simple Saturday card.


  • Let’s get started with my inspiration–this adorable dress (Boden USA) and even the model’s red lipstick got my creative wheels turning!

  • The die cut “hello” (Hello You Thinlits Dies) was adhered to the Real Red layer with just a bit hanging over.  I love how it “floats” over the Whisper White when Stampin’ Dimensionals are placed below the Real Red layer.

  • A single Basic Black Candy Dot (Neutrals Candy Dots) accents the corner and balances the space.

  • Adding a piece of wax paper between detailed thinlits dies (like “hello”) and card stock before running it through the Big Shot really helps with removal.

  1. Love the colors, the design, everything about this card. Thanks for showing us your inspiration. It is amazing where we find that little something, that in turns, helps us create something else.

  2. Hi Mary,

    I just love your card today. I am a fan of red and I think it really makes this card look great! Do you know that now you have me thinking about cards every time I look at our Lands End Catalog! Every time a pattern or color combination catches my eyes I start imagining cards, ever since I read one of your posts a while back. Lots of inspirations. But I have to say, you really nailed it today with this one. It looks so neat next to the dress! You have a very unique style. I like it.
