Detach a Stamp

For those of you with young kids or grand-kids, this card will make you smile! I have a niece that just turned three and when we attended her birthday party my mom made her a beautiful handmade card with a raised banner that said “guess who’s turning three”.  Well…being three…my niece immediately started picking at…

Party Pants

I’m bringing you another birthday card idea today! This stamp is from a Sale-A-Bration stamp set that I earned in March.  For those of your who are new to Stampin’ Up, each Jan-Mar they offer free stamp sets, washi tape, or paper packs with every $50 purchase! I stamped my “Put Your Party Pants On”…

Father’s Day Card

I hope all the dad’s out there had a wonderful Father’s Day! I couldn’t share my card before Father’s Day because my dad reads my blog! I went very serious and stately for the outside of the card…and went fun on the inside! The race car and flag are actually stickers but I used my May…

Paper Pumpkin Class

I wanted to share a quick photo from my Paper Pumpkin class that I held last Sunday.  This kit is an unbelievable deal at $20 a month.  May’s kit came with 8 laser cut cards, decorating supplies, a stamp set and envelopes.  I added a few variations of paper and embellishments and the ladies created…

Watercolor Rose

Water-coloring never fails to remind me of my childhood! I wanted to show you a slightly more grown up result using the water-coloring technique for a card.   I cut out the large rose from the Rose Wonder Thinlit Dies set to use for this card.  I also cut a square of Stampin’ Up’s watercolor paper.  You first wet the…

Color Challenge #2

As I mentioned last month I am participating in a color challenge this year! This month’s challenge was to use the colors Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, and Tangerine Tango together on a card. A while back, I had received an inspiration photo from a wonderful customer with cats made using Stampin’ Up’s Banner Triple Punch.  I was immediately drawn to…

Bow Builder Punch Expanded

What do Santa, a gobbler, a black tie event, and bows all have in common? The Bow Builder Punch, of course! 🙂 As you all know I LOVE Stampin’ Up’s punches.  I recently ordered the brand new Fox Builder Punch! While I wait oh so patiently for it to arrive I created an inspiration board…

Triple Layer Stamping

This is by far my favorite card I have created lately. I used the stamps from the Botanical Blooms set and used the triple layer stamping technique. This technique is fairly simple but is so stunning when completed. I also used this technique for my May card class and this was the card we created…

Baker’s Box

Here is a little inspiration for anyone who has (or wants) the Homemade for You Bundle! It’s a pretty known fact that I lack any kind of cooking skills…give me paper and glue any day of the week! Aside from the fact that the Baker’s box Thinlit Dies are awesome, I just HAD to buy this stamp set…
