The Secret To Life

Hello Stampers!

I have a confession to make: I'm a hoarder. When Stampin' Up! introduced Mocha Morning Specialty DSP I couldn't get it fast enough, but when it arrived, I wouldn't break the seal on it. I found a special place in my craft room for it, so it would be "protected". Then finally, days before it was retired, I opened it and used a very small piece. The other day, I was looking at it and trying to figure out what I was saving it for? Why buy it, if I'm not going to use it? So, I'm going to try and change my ways and use everything I purchase and start enjoying it. Hopefully, make something special for someone else to enjoy as well. So, today's card was created using a retired piece of DSP with black flocking from my all time favorite; Mocha Morning Specialty.

Stamps: From My Heart
Paper: Mocha Morning Specialty DSP, Basic Black & Very Vanilla card stock
Ink: VersaMark, Black Stampin' Emboss Powder
Accessories: New Apothecary Accents Framelits, New Oval Accents Bigz Clear Die, Heat Tool, Basic Black Satin Ribbon, Pewter Jumbo Eyelets


  1. As long as we are confessing... my Mocha Morning DSP is still unopened also along with the SAB DSP. I am glad I am in good company:) I started following your blog over the weekend after you were featured on Stampin' Pretty.

  2. Lol...I am very sure that you are not the only DSP hoarder...card stock as well...including yours truly! I was late buying it but took a few months to open myself and made my brother a birthday card....we are all in great company! Great card!
