Floral Thinlit Dies

I’m continuing with the wedding theme this week and showing you one of my favorite cards I’ve made in a long time. This card was created using the brand new Floral Thinlit Dies. I started out with a piece of paper 10″ long by 4.25″ wide.  I cut the two sides of the paper using the…

Magic Card

So I cannot take credit for this cool idea at all but I did make a version that is all my own!  Check out this YouTube link for the full instructions on how to make this awesome card! As I mentioned on Tuesday I made my card using the Botanical Blooms Stamp Set. On the…

Sending Smiles

The Botanical Builder Framelits Dies are a set I have used several times but haven’t taken the time to blog about!  As I started out as a new Stampin’ Up demonstrator I wanted to be sure to send a handmade card to the people that ordered from me.  While everyone knows mass producing a card…

Fox Builder Punch

This Foxy Friends bundle is fresh out of the brand new Stampin’ Up catalog! You know I love all things animals, so, along with the Bella and Friends set I highlighted on Monday, this bundle was also on my first order in June! It comes with a great punch (reminds me of the Owl Builder Punch) and a…

Bella and Friends

I am so excited to write this blog post! Ever since the new Stampin’ Up catalog was released I have been counting the days until I could order this brand new stamp set! The Bella and Friends set is the cutest combination of dog stamps that I’ve had a chance to get my hands on….

Color Challenge #3

Hello July! It’s already time for my third color challenge card! You can see the first two here and here. The colors we were challenged to use together were Night of Navy, Real Red and Whisper White.  Fourth of July colors! I’ll be honest I really struggled with this combo.  I had already done a…

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…
