Colorful Birthday Card

This card just makes me smile!  I think it is the bright colors.  What do you think?

I used the SU Decorative Mask (Circles) to make the circles on the card - with Mossy Meadow, Calypso Coral and Blackberry Bliss - and my dauber.  I stamped the candles on scrap white card stock and cut each one out.  I also cut out "you" from the sentiment and "fussy cut" it.   A happy birthday card for someone special!

The Versatility of Work of Art!

I was really on a roll yesterday and made a lot of cards - some for convention swaps and some for my stamp club next week.  I pretty much used one stamp set for all the cards!!  I just love the versatility of Work of Art which is the stamp set we received at the catalog reveal party.  I wasn't so sure when I first got it but I have been definitely won over!!  Most of the cards I made are soooo easy and take just a few minutes to make.  That's my kind of creating these days!!  Here are a few ideas for you.

Make a sailboat!  I embossed the Coastal Cabana card with the chevron folder to carry on the waves theme.  And how about the little crab from Sea Street?  Colors on this one are Coastal Cabana, Baked Brown Sugar and Calypso Coral.

Yummy popsicles to celebrate the first day of summer tomorrow.  Colors used are:  Real Red; Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay and Perfect Plum.  The sentiment is from Really Good Greetings.

Stamp the birds from Wetlands on the beach.  Colors used are all the new in colors - Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, Lost Lagoon and I added Baked Brown Sugar for the sand.  

How about a rainbow for these summer storms that keep cropping up?  Add the saying from Feels Good.  Rainbow colors are:  Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, Lost Lagoon, Rich Razzleberry and Wisteria Wonder. 

This one is just a soft "love you" but a sentiment could also be added to the bottom.  I used the Envelope Punch Board to make the little cut-outs on the side.  Colors on this one are:  Hello Honey, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana.

I had a request for an anniversary card - how simple!  Colors used are:  Strawberry Slush, Pink Pirouette, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Pistachio Pudding.  The sentiment is retired.
I think Sonny and I are going to go see Jersey Boys today.  The Four Seasons are one of my all time favorite groups and I can't wait to see the movie.  I have seen the play in Las Vegas and we both loved it.  When I was in college (at ECU), I dated a boy who was in a fraternity.  A few of the guys rented a house out in the country and we would go there on the weekends to party.  It never failed that they would put on a Four Seasons album (yes, no CD's or smart phones back then!) and we would all gather 'round and sing every song on that record belting them out one after the other!  Those were some fun days!  Needless to say, we were thrilled when the Four Seasons played at ECU one year for Homecoming - none of us missed them!!

I Freakin' Love You!

I received a sweet thank you card this week from Ashley.

She used the stamp set, Really Good Greetings and the Naturals White card stock.  Don't you just love it?


The Everyday Occasions Card making Kit was developed with the new customer in mind. It is intended to introduce--by way of a simple, fun experience at a great price--the arts of stamping and card making to people who have not yet experienced the joy of Stampin' Up! products. Why go to the store when a birthday, graduation, wedding or even a time for expressing gratitude comes up? The Everyday Occasions Card making Kit puts cards for all of those events right at your customers' fingertips, and best of all, they'll be handmade! The kit contains everything necessary (minus adhesive and scissors) to create 20 beautiful cards for almost any occasion, and it comes in a beautiful box to store them in.

But even those of us who are not new customers can use this kit to quickly make a card when you need one fast!  And you can always use your bling and other things you have in your stash to bling up the card.

This kit is:

1. Easy
2. Great for new card makers and experienced – EVERYONE
3. Includes 7 piece stamp set, block, ink spot, dimnensionals, bakers twine, all pre-cut materials and envelopes
4. Quality card stock and tags
5. Love island indigo and basic gray inks and they are the two colors included
6. Visual tips and tricks brochure
7. Silver glimmer paper and cute clips are part of the kit – I love these products.
8. It would make a great gift for a new card maker - think Christmas for your granddaughter, neighbor, daughter or son, etc.

Check out the flier HERE.

ALSO .... if you haven't gotten the great Envelope Punch Board yet, you may have to wait a bit on it. The supply is running low.  Stampin' Up has had an overwhelmingly positive response to the new Envelope Punch Board--so much so that that they have nearly sold through the supply weeks sooner than they anticipated! SU has already taken steps to restock the inventory, but the new supply will not arrive in the Distribution Center until mid-October. They anticipate that the Envelope Punch Boards will be placed on backorder in the next few days.

Club Cards for June

This is Stamp Club week and I made several easy cards for the gals to complete this month.  I had a hard time deciding which new stamps to use!  So fun to have those options!!

I love this color combo - Pistachio Pudding, Cantalope and Smoky Slate.  I used the stamp set, Happy Day.

Isn't this one bright and cheery?  This DSP is from the Quatrafancy pack.  How do you like that doily that is tucked in?   I love the ribbon choices this year.  I used the pretty Strawberry Slush trim along with Natural Trim ribbon around an Island Indigo strip of cardstock.  The stamp set is Label Love.

This was the simplest to make!  The DSP is from Modern Medley and is gorgeous.  We stamped the tulip from Backyard Basics 5 times and then used the matching framelit to die cut.  Add a little glue, tie a ribbon and voila, an easy card for almost any occasion!

Another easy one.  Stamp a few mosaics directly on the card (from Mosaic Madness); add a strip of DSP and a strip of Washi Tape; stamp a sentiment and tie a piece of Bakers Twine around.  The Strawberry Slush mosaics was punched out and popped up.  How do you like that button?  It's molded from the clay!  I LOVE this clay!  The sentiment is from Really Good Greetings.

This was probably the most time consuming card because of all the parts.  The dress was cut out with the Dress Up framelit and taped onto the dress form.  For the Apothecary die, I cut 2 black ones and cut one horizontally and one vertically to mat the yellow Apothecary die.  The base card was cut out using the Pop n' Cut Card Base (see how it tucks in on the bottom).
I got my "mojo" back today and made 3 cards for an upcoming Shoe Box Swap I am attending!  So pumped!
