  1. Hi I love all your cards. I have been watching a lot of your videos today and learning a lot from them. But what is the name of the punch that you used on this card? TFS!!

  2. I think the clean and simple nature of this card is what makes it so cute! That is what first attracted me to your cards when I saw them on Split Coast Stampers. Big frills don’t give me big thrills.

  3. Hi Darlene. I love this card! You are really an awesome “voice” for Stampin’ Up, by that I don’t mean your actual voice, although it’s perfect on your video, but you really believe in the product and I find that an awesome quality. Whether intentional or not, you have shared so many incredible tips in your video today, which is what keeps me coming back to watch them all! I have purchased my first Stampin’ Up stamps just last week and I am totally impressed with the high quality and the detail in each image and the way those details are captured on paper. I have stayed away from their “clear stamps”, just because some of my clings from other companies are not really clinging anymore, so I am cautious, however, price wise I may have to start looking at them again versus the wood stamps. Anyway, I am blabbing, just wanted to give you those compliments because you take the time and effort to share your beautiful work with people like me. Thank you.

  4. Darlene, Just wanted to chime in as well about how much I look forward to Wednesday’s and watching & listening to your videos. It all looks so simple and effortless when you do it – but I’m sure you spend lots of time thinking and planning these cards out in advance. You are an inspiration!! Thanks so much!

  5. Darlene, So glad I found your Blog, You Brighten my day and Inspire me. The days do not seem long enough. Your card for today is Beautiful.

  6. And yet another fabulous card. I want to be you when I grow up.

  7. Darlene, another winner! Thanks for the tip on making the row of dots. I never would have thought of that. Love the mod edges on this card too!

  8. I look forward to your weekly videos. This card is so perfect! Thanks for sharing with us each week. I’ve learned a lot from you so far!

  9. It’s always a joy to watch your video’s and this one is great too. I like the card.
    We had a good day yesterday and a not so good day today, rain and clouds, and now it’s 8.15pm and the sun comes out!

  10. Another cute one! I really like your special effects! Careful about wishing for those clouds though! Here in So Cal our usually dry 100+ temp is still close to that, but with the clouds that bring in the humidity! YUCK! We actually had real rain the other day! I know 107 is a lot but, be careful what you wish for! 🙂 Hope your daughter survives her game!

  11. Darlene, I’ve never posted but I just wanted to comment on how much I love your blog! It is such an inspiration, I just love how you put different products together and just wanted to say (in the nicest way possible) you are an enabler! I can’t begin to tell you how much I’ve ordered from SU! after seeing a card sample.

    Keep up the fantastic work!

  12. Yay! It’s Wednesday and Darlene has another card to share! 🙂 As always you don’t disappoint, thank you for all of your hard work and beautifully stunning card designs.

  13. So you are in Texas!! I was born in Texas, but unfortunately moved away as a child, but I’ve been a Texan at heart my whole life! LOL!! Your card is cute. I always like touches like using a clear glaze for special effects. I think I own every brand of clear glaze except the Stampin’ Up kind that you mentioned! LOL!!

  14. This card is adorable. So many tips and techniques you shared. Thank you. I’m going to try this immediately and “I’ll be back”. Do you allow people to order via Internet and, if so, what methods of payment do you allow?

  15. Cute card, Darlene. I love the effect. Your note to self is the same as the one to myself. You’ll need to write it multiple times if you’re like me ;- ) Our heat hasn’t been as bad as yours and I’m hating it. We just had a cold (cool) front go through. I really feel for your daughter. Have a great day and try to stay cool >.<
