You Brighten My Day

Here are a couple of cards I made using the Sale-a-Bration set, You Brighten My Day.

My nephew and his family recently moved to a new home in Austin.  I made this card for them to celebrate their move.  I used a piece of the Adventure Bound DSP stack for the background and cut it with the Project Life Thinlet.  The houses are stamped onto Naturals card stock with the middle house heat embossed with white craft ink.  The little banner at the top uses paper from the Adventure Bound stack also.

This card is a CASE.  I love it!!  I stamped the light bulbs on Naturals card stock and cut each one out.  Then I popped them up on dimensionals and drew a black line to the bottom.

Each week, Stampin' Up! features a Sale-a-bration product to give you inspiration for projects.  This week, it's the You Brighten My Day stamp set.

Adventure Bound Quick and Easy!

If you have seen the paper stack in the Occasions Catalog called Adventure Bound (pg 40) and wondered (like my sister did) what in the world would you do with it, let me just share a few cards I made with it last weekend.  It makes great masculine cards.

I used the "hello" thinlet and cut one from Soft Suede and one from Very Vanilla, added a little Tombow glue to the back and shadowed them.  "Just Sayin'" is from the great set, Crazy About You.

How about a nautical look?  I used the Circles Dies to cut my "porthole" and stamped the boat image with Staz-On Black ink onto Vellum paper.
What about a sweater on a cold day?  The buttons are made using the Simply Pressed Clay and Buttons and Blossoms molds (pg 208).  I used my Blendabilities to color the buttons.  The sentiment is from Sheltering Tree.

This may be my favorite!  I stamped the sun in Crushed Curry in the corner with the stamp from Kinda Eclectic.  I stamped the sentiment (Feel Goods) in Gold and embossed with Gold Powder.

Super simple on this one.  You Rock (from Crazy for You) was stamped on Vellum and cut out with the Word Bubbles Thinlets and backed with Gray card stock.

These cards are so quick and easy to make!!

Well. we got the "big" storm last night ... ha ha!!  A mixture of snow and sleet started falling about 3:30 - as Mom and I were leaving the doctor's office.  I had hoped to make a few stops after taking her home but decided I'd best get on over the bridge and home before the streets got slick.  We had a mix off and on until I went to bed around midnight.  I was hoping to see a winter wonderland when I woke up today but this is all I saw!

Nothing to get excited about!  It is pretty slick - at least that was what Sonny told me when he walked up the driveway to get the newspaper this morning.  I canceled my Tuesday Stamp Club and Sonny's Tuesday skeet shooting was canceled.  So now we'll see what else comes our way.  This is our forecast for now:
