Card Share & Personal Invite!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yes, I took the day off yesterday, that is one benefit of having your own business ❤ So I’m back today with a super cute -n- quick card to you!

This month my Stampin’ Clubs are working with the Petal Passion Product Suite and the coordination Designer Paper, so I used another pattern from it and sponged “turquoise”  on it giving it the “Ombre” look … I did mine from dark to light!

I couldn’t resist using those darling Pandas from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set “Party Pandas” ….

Aren’t they just the cutest little guys you’ve ever seen!? Love them … and speaking of love, the greeting is included with the stamp set and they can be yours for FREE!! With a $50 purchase (before s&h) you can choose this or other exclusive stamps & product from our Sale-A-Bration catalog.

I punched out the greeting with the new Scallop punches found on page 17 of the Occasions Catalog. The awesome glimmer paper on the greeting and balloon are from the Myths & Magic product suite … that is also where you will find the coordinating Washi Tape I used on the outside and inside of my card.

AND  … if you like to party like a Panda, I’ve got a fun video to share with you. Sit back and watch how our Stampin’ Family parties … this is one of our On Stage events. We see new product introductions, how to use it, celebrate each others accomplishments, stamping demonstrations and the beloved PRIZE PATROL!!! Enjoy …

Two for Tuesday: Picture Perfect Party

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m back with 2 super cute, super easy cards that you can create with the new Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper stack! I made this easy peasy card with the candle pattern and the Happy Birthday Thinlet …

I used Bermuda Bay and Basic Black cardstock to create the big bold birthday wish on this card. I glued the two pieces together but “off set” them so you get the shadow effect which really makes the greeting pop!

My second card I used the designer paper with the circles on it. I really wanted to make this a FUN card so I used the Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock and Ribbon …

I also used a touch of black cardstock to mat my designer paper and to cut the “celebrate” greeting. The “YOU” is cut with the Silver Foil paper to create the focal point, and it coordinates with a couple of the dots on the designer paper.

The die cut greetings are an exclusive item that you can get FREE with a qualifying purchase. The Celebrate You thinlets dies are in our Sale-a-bration catalog and it’s our biggest and most fun promotion of the year… Seriously, who doesn’t like FREE stamps and / or accessories … and NOW Thinlets!!

Hope you enjoyed todays Birthday cards … we can never have too many of those.

Thank you for spending a part of your day with me, it’s always nice to hang out with a friend.

Have a great day!



Picture Perfect Party suite

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share with you a great video that highlights a totally fun new product suite … the Picture Perfect Party suite!

Create perfect birthday projects with photographic images and festive party designs with the Picture Perfect Party suite by Stampin’ Up! Coordinating paper, ink, ribbon, Embossing Folder, and more!

I have an announcement for you …

Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon Removed

The Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon (145502) due to issues with the manufacturer  we have continued to experience delays in production. As a result, Stampin’ Up! decided the best course of action for all of us and the company is to remove this item from our product offering.

We know many of you—just like us—were eagerly anticipating the release of this product. We want you to know how sorry we are about this turn of events. Although Picture Perfect Paper Ribbon won’t be available, we have some good news: We’ve got many other ribbons that are available. With your creative minds, we know you’ll still be able to create the perfect card!

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

With that said … there is plenty of awesome products in this suite, so stop back tomorrow for my Two for Tuesday and I’ll share with you what I’ve come up with.

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you tomorrow!

Have a great week ~




Simply Sunday … Simply Fun!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m back with a fun, quick card that I whipped together using my December 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit! This is really a versatile kit … and I love the die cut card fronts, makes them so easy to pull a card together (if you want to change it up a bit).

I turned the card sideways (as it was designed to be a vertical card) because I knew I wanted to create a “celebration” type card to be used for birthdays or congrats, or just to cheer someone up!

Everything I used was included in the kit except the balloons … I punched out the turquoise one from the Myths & Magic Glimmer paper and created my own Berry Burst by sponging the color onto the White Glimmer included in the kit!! Even the Bakers Twine and banner were included in the kit!
