Grateful Bunch

To create this card I used  4" x 5 1/4" piece of Garden Green, on top of Whisper White card base. I added a 1 1/2" x  5"  scrap of Affectionately Your Specialty Designer Series Paper,  and 2 1/2" x 5" of Whisper White.  Stamp the leaves of Grateful Buch in Garden Green ink and the three flowers on a scrap with Watermelon Wonder.  Use the coordinating Blossom Bunch punch to quickly punch our the flowers and adhere them with dimentionals."   The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Sympathy stamp  set.  Stamp it on a 2"x3" scrap of Whisper White and back that to a 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" of Garden Green.  This color combination and stamp and punch set are a sure win for creating beautiful cards!  Get yours today:

Stamping' Up! Mixed Drinks

Who doesn't like drinking root beer from a frosted mug?  Better yet creating a calorie free card?  This sweet little card even moves!  I used the Classic Label Punch to create the track that the mug slides in.  Then I adhered a penny on the back of the mug, form the stamp set Mixed Drinks,  with Fast Fuse, put a dimensional on the back of the penny, lined it up in the track and added one more penny to the back.  Be sure to use dimensionals on the corners of the card so there is a little more room for the pennies to slide.  The mug will spin 360 degree and slide!  Quick Tip:  If you don't want the images to spine use two pennies side by side and attack a small paper to hold them together.  Then they will only slide.  Get your supplies at my store and have fun making your own slider cards!

Swirly Birds

Welcome to the world little one!  This sweet card was easy to create using the Swirly Bird Stamp & the Swirly Squabbles Thinlits and the 2" circle punch.  Punch half a circle on two corners and in the top center, this will be your starting point for the onesie. Using the circle punch again create the neck and leg boarders. Next,  cut a triangle down each side.  Add the swirly squiggles and sailboat in a circle to complete the onesie.  Let me help you order the supplies to create this card:

Thoughtful Branches - Get it Before It's GONE!

Have you made your dozens of different kinds of cards with this versatile set?  No? You need to  get your must-have Thoughtful Branches bundle! Remember this is a limited time bundle - until August 31 while supplies last.
To create this card grab the Hardwood stamp and use Soft Suede ink.  Clean the stamp and use a dobber with whisper white ink and ink a few spots in the Hard wood stamp and stamp the paper again.  It will give the old wood look.  Then create a hydrangea with the Thoughtful Branches.  I love the sentiment that is with the Paisleys & Posies.  Get yours before it is too late!

Foxy Friend

This past week I had the opportunity to spend the day at the Pierce County Fair.  One of the displays I created was with the Foxy Friend Suite.  To create this card you will need to emboss Whisper White card stock with the Woodland Texture Embossing folder (my favorite), add a few trees with the Peaceful Pines stamp set and Perfect Pines Framelits.  And the feature of this card the sweet raccoon is made with the Foxy Friend Stamp set and punch.  What animal friend will you create?  Keep an eye on my blog to see who scampers in next!

I'm thrilled with this stamp set and the framelits.  I have always been a fan of paisleys (I think its the inner hippy in me!) and this set is a dream come true!  I took my biggest block and set up my stamps to create this gorgeous background stamp!  Stamping up does a fabulous job creating suites and they didn't hold back with this one.  The Designer Paper Series has so much detail and pairs with Rich Razzleberry, Delightful Dijon, Night of Navy, and Mint Macaron.  I added two floral leaves on the ribbon to add a flair.  This fall card will be prefect with the sentiment to give to all the people that I love.  Get all the things you need to create this card on my site.

Perfectly Wrapped

I needed a thank you card to give to a neighbor that helped me out.  I took out my favorite  "cool" colors, Watermelon Wonder and Daffodil Delight and stamped these summery flowers on some whisper white.  With the corner rounder I softened two of the corners  and the cars was ready to mount.  Thanks to a scrap of pool party paper I added my sentiment and was out the door to deliver my card.  If you haven't check out the amazing kits Stampin' Up! has to offer, give me a call or stop over so I can share them with you!  Remember the stamp set can be used to create others things too!
