Here’s A Card Stamp Set …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Have you ever had a moment when you didn’t know what to say? The “Here’s a Card” Stamp Set can help you say what you want to for any occassion so you can give them a card! We’re positive the lucky recipient of your card will love it.

The samples above show how a casual or avid stamper could coordinate with products from both the annual catalog and the holiday catalog to get cards perfect for any occasion.

In our Congratulations card, we combined this stamp set with the Leaf Punch and the Stitched Nested Dies from the annual catalog with the Feels Like Frost designer series paper from the holiday catalog.

Our Happy Birthday card features the Balloon Bouquet Punch from the annual catalog and the Brightly Gleaming designer series paper from the holiday catalog.

The Hello There card was made with the Stitched Shapes Dies and the Cup of Christmas Stamp Set.
There are so many ways to show someone how much they mean to you, but the Here’s a Card Stamp Set is a great place to start.

These cute card samples and description comes from the Stampin’ Up! home office. I love to coordinate my stamp sets with each other to really get more bang for my buck… many of them are designed to work together.

Thanks for dropping by today.  Hope you enjoyed these cute projects today, I’ll be back tomorrow with something special!

Stay Dry and Have a wonderful day… It’s a wet one out there today. Good day to stamp!

Happy Birthday Magnolia Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have a beautiful card to share with you today since I missed you yesterday.  Came down with something on Saturday and it knocked me out … I’ve been sleeping ever since!  Today’s card is another from the Magnolia family and you are sure to all in love with it.

It’s pretty simple to make and we begin with the Magnolia 3D embossing folder. It’s easy to make a great impression! Just place flat cardstock in this embossing folder, run it through a die-cutting and embossing machine, and out comes cardstock with a bold textured design. 3D embossing folders take embossing to the next level, with deeper, more detailed impressions than standard embossing folders …

After the background is embossed, what better way to say happy birthday than with a beautiful magnolia flower? The images and sentiments in the versatile Magnolia Blooms Stamp Set come together in an elegant way to express your heartfelt wishes.

The magnolia was stamped with Momento Ink and sponged with Petal Pink ink using the daubers. The leaves were colored with the Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Duo… and then the flower was fussy cut (there is no die for this flower).

The Happy Birthday also comes from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set and was punched out with the Timeless Label punch. I also used the punch to create a mat for behind the greeting which I used Mossy Meadow cardstock.

I used the beautiful Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon to finish off the card and add some texture and elegance. It really does tie the entire card together…  It maybe a simple card but it is so pretty, and don’t forget to add that touch of Wink of Stella to our Magnolia blossom, it really is pretty.

I hope you think this beautiful card was worth the wait … it was a big hit at my July Stamp Club.  I will be starting my Stamp Clubs up again this September … please let me know if you would like to join us, or would like more information about my stamp clubs.

Thank you for joining me today to check out my blog…

Have a wonderful day.

Daisy Delights: Two Guest Stampers!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather … it’s been amazing and it’s suppose to be gorgeous today too. OK … I’m not the local weather person, so let me talk more about what I’m good at, stamping!  Today I have two really cute cards that were created by my Spring Retreat Attendees Kellie and Michelle.  The spring floral cards both used the Daisy Punch, which by the way … will be in the upcoming catalog and has another stamp set to coordinate with it!

Let’s start with Kellie’s card, she used both the Daisy Punch and the Daisy Delights stamp set…

I believe Kellie used Blushing Bride and Whisper White as her core color pallet.  The white background was embossed with the Petal Burst Embossing Folder.  I love the little Happy Birthday Banner … it’s so cute and adds a sweet touch to the card.  One of my favorite embellishments, the Faceted Gems! Whether you use the Gold or the Clear, you can’t go wrong and I just love them with this daisy punch!

Count your petals on Michelle’s card …

Is this a card saying … He love me, he loves me not?  I’m not sure but it’s really cute!  Michelle’s daisies were punched out using the beautiful Shimmery White cardstock (No Wink of Stella needed!) this cardstock has a shimmer of it’s own,

Michelle’s color pallet consists of white and the beautifully bold Daffodil Delight, bright and happy! Her background was created using the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder and was cut into 3 panels to highlight each transition of the daisy

Don’t you just love a punch that can create two totally different styles of cards… That’s what I call “cost effective”! lol

Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to join me in “picking daisies”.

Enjoy your day ~

Happy Birthday to Me …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have a very quick post for you today and I’m sharing one of my “Birthday Cards” with you!  The card was created by my sister Rita …  The 2 big flowers are from “Fabulous Florets”, and the script is from “Hugs & Wishes”.

The stamps may be retired but I know many of you have these stamp sets, so I decided to share.  I will be back tomorrow with my Two for Tuesday, so I will meet back up with you then!

Thanks for stopping by … and actually, my birthday was actually yesterday.

 

Simply Sunday: Birthday Candles

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

If you are looking to make quick -n- easy birthday cards, look no further than your “Happy Birthday” Framelits die and your favorite designer paper! Today I have selected the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer paper.  It has bright party designs on one side, all-occasion designs with gold foil on the other side—all you need for glitzy and bold projects!

Coordinating colors: Basic Black, gold foil, Gray Granite, Lemon Lime Twist, Lovely Lipstick, Whisper White!  I chose the black and white candles with a touch of gold, perfect card for any age …

With a simple Basic Black base (everyone needs a little black dress for the party… right!) and the gold foil enhanced designer paper you are sure to be the hit of the party.  The candles are ageless but this card is for my nephew who turns 50 this year. I put a small piece of Vellum Cardstock behind the Birthday greeting so it showed off even more.

Such a fun and simple way to make a card and you can change who it will go to just by changing your designer paper.

Thank you for joining me today… I hope yours is a good one.

Mini Pizza Boxes … All Decked Out!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you are doing well.  It’s finally warming up here but it’s coming with rain … however, I’ll take the rain over the blizzard conditions to the west of us!! Stay warm my friends!

Today I’d like to share another Sale-a-bration item … The Mini Pizza Box and the many different ways it can be decked out (and stuffed) Did you know two good sized cookies fit in there!!

First lets team up the Pizza Box with another Sale-a-Bration item, the “Home to Roost” stamp set.  How cute are these two items together.

Next … I would like to share one of my mantle gifts from a past Stamping Retreat.  I turned the pizza box into a “gift box”… and I embossed the top flap!! Did you know that you can use your folders to emboss the cover of the pizza box.  I decked it out with a silver glitter bow on top and rhinestones on the front … they were so pretty!

A project that our attendees made were these festively decorated pizza boxes with three gift tags tucked inside.  These also made a cute little gift, whether they wanted to share them or keep the gift box with tags for themselves … we had a blast making them and they were pretty easy to make.

Let’s move away from Christmas and head over to a birthday celebration … this cute box is surely filled with lots of happy surprises and birthday wishes.  The pizza box is paired up with the “Postcard Pals” stamp set, and I know of few of my grandchildren who would love to get this for their birthday ….

If you don’t have little kids or grandchildren to deck out one of the pizza boxes … why not try the “One Wild Ride” stamp set with it.  What a fabulous way to deck out a gift card, certificate or hey … cash!!

I hope you enjoyed the five fun ways to decorate your pizza boxes … they’re so cute I wonder if they’ll even care what’s inside!  With just a $50 order, you can add these to your goodies for FREE.  Or … if you have more supplies you need to stock up on, you can add that handsome Rooster as well.

Thank you so much for spending part of your Wednesday with me …

Have yourself and awesome day.

Delightfully Detailed Parade of Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a couple of my favorite cards I created using the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut paper that is now available as a Sale-a-bration FREEBIE!!  Saturday I shared my Pool Party card with you ….

And today I have two more for you!!  This little lace beauty begins with the Delightfully Detailed Note cards (All can be found on pages 38 and 39 of the annual catalog). These note cards already have the “water wash” background so all the work is done for you! This one is the newly returned Blackberry Bliss color.

The beautiful greeting comes from the “Detailed with Love” stamp set, stamped in Blackberry Bliss and to draw your eye to the greeting I used a simple scrap piece of Very Vanilla and used the coordinating “Detailed Trio Punch” to round off the edges and punch the cute design into the ends.  The punch is bundled with the stamp set so you can save 10% on the purchase.

I finished off the envelope by stamping a cute design from the may patterns in the stamp set.

The last of the cards that I have created was for a West Bend East Graduate… those are our school colors. The greeting comes from the stamp set “High Tide” with the lighthouse.

Did you know that if you purchased the Detailed with Love Bundle, the Delightfully Detailed Note cards and either the cute Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon or the Faceted Dot that coordinate with this product suite you could get the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut paper for FREE! Oh yes, and the paper is Whisper White on one side (featured on the graduation card) and Very Vanilla on the other (featured on the note card).  Amazing and super versatile.

Delicately detailed laser-cut sheets. Vanilla on one side, white on the other side. Can easily be cut apart and used as accents on card fronts.

* 8 sheets: 4 each of 2 designs * 12″ x 12″

Please remember to use the Sale-a-bration number: 152840 for your Delightfully Detailed laser-cut sheets.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and checking in with me. I hope you enjoyed the cards. And please, let me know if you have any questions regarding this product suite. Again, you can find it on pages 38 & 39 of the annual catalog.

Have a wonderful day ~

Sweet, Sweet, Baby!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy Valentine’s Day!! ❤

Have you noticed there are certain things you can count on always needing cards for: birthdays, thank you, and babies. Today I have the cutest cards created by our Stampin’ Up! offices. The first is Perfectly Paired from the Occasions Catalog … This caught my eye right away because of I a collection of all things Noah’s Ark.  This would make a perfect picture hanging in a child’s room!!

Also perfect for those of you who love to color … break out the Stampin’ Blends because this stamp set is perfect for them.  If you don’t have your blends yet, the watercolor pencils would be quick -n- easy and give you a totally different look.

The cute little gift bag is made with the Little Twinkle stamp set from the big Annual Catalog and coordinates with the Twinkle, Twinkle Designer Series paper!  This is a very versatile stamp set and I have it in my collection … along with the designer paper (I use it for many occasions!).   It also coordinates with the Twinkle Builder punch, Twinkle, Twinkle Cardstock pack and Twinkle Adhesive backed sequins!!

Here are a few more projects the “just twinkle” …

The cute little “Written in the Stars” gift card in the upper left hand corner and the “Love you More than the Star’s” in the lower right hand corner would be perfect for Valentines Day or a birthday.  I think birthdays are the perfect time to say “I Love You” …. heck, that’s everyday!

I wish you a warm and wonderful day today!

Sprinkled with Love …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

You’ve seen some cute samples from our Sale-a-bration catalog … Well, I’ve got more for you today!!

I don’t know about you but the Hello Cupcake is a fun and easy way to say Happy Birthday, and with the release of the coordinating Thinlits dies in March, it just adds the cherry on top!!

The banner on the top card gives some great dimension while the sequins adds some texture and a touch of bling.

Those dies are going to come in handy if you want to recreate our center card and celebrate the day.  I love the technique of creating your background by stamping the greeting and then using the Vellum Cardstock to highlight your cupcakes.

Our last of the cupcakes also uses the Vellum Cardstock but showcases the “Sweet Wishes” by stamping right on it while still allowing your cupcake to peek through.  And the candle embellishments really add a nice touch to this gift card.

The next card is teasing you with the new “All Adorned” stamp set which is part of the Second Release to our Sale-a-bration catalog.  This is perfect timing for my “Sweetheart of a Deal” because using the Stamperatus with this set will give you perfect placement of your corner images.

Here is my Sweetheart of a Deal … remember the second release items become active on the 15th of February.

Sweet Wishes …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry I missed  you yesterday but I’m back today with twice the fun! I’ve got two cards for you today that feature the adorable “Hello Cupcake” stamp set from our Sale-A-Bration catalog.

Lets start with our first card, this card was created with our beginner stampers in mind … Stamps, Paper and Ink! My color pallet is Flirty Flamingo and Crumb cake. The stamps are photopolymer so the images are easy for anyone to align.

The cute little greeting comes with the stamp set along with two other greeting, the sprinkles (which I stamped around the edges to look like confetti) and 3 more stamps. Just think of all the cute cards you will be able to make with this set, and it’s FREE with a $50 purchase.

My second card is definitely a step up, although I did use exactly the same stamps and color scheme.  My cupcake got a touch of added ink by coloring it with a blender pen and a touch of our favorite “Wink of Stella”.  I also fussy cut the cupcake out so I could pop it up and make it the focal point of my card.

I used the same Flirty Flamingo cardstock but instead of using to mat the white, I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelit dies to cut out an opening which highlights my greeting.  I also added a bright pop of color with the Gingham Gala Designer paper … the coordinating ribbon can be found in the Sale-A-Bration catalog as well.

I could not resist adding the sweet little “Frosted Flower” Embellishments to my card, and if they weren’t cute enough … I added a touch of Wink of Stella and a Rhinestone to the center for a bit of bling! This is a perfect card for your little sweetie!!

Thank you for stopping back today and enjoying a “cupcake” or two!!

Have a sweet day ~

Don’t throw those scraps away …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

What do you do with those strips of designer paper after making a card … toss them?  Oh no!!  Today I have the perfect card that you can create with those left over scraps from your other card or scrapbook projects.

The strips of designer paper comes from the Brights and 2018-2020 In-Color Collections … aren’t they pretty!! The greeting comes from the Calligraphy Essentials stamp set found on page 11 of the Annual Catalog!

To create the multi-colored greeting the following markers where used directly onto the stamp: Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party and Highland Heather.

The Delightfully Detailed Designer Specialty paper was tucked behind the greeting to add some beautiful texture to the card.

So … before you throw those scraps away, think of how you can utilize them on your next card.

Thanks much for stopping by, enjoy your day ~

Happy 4th of July Cards & Projects

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

My apologies for the late post but as many of you know … sometimes the cards in our head, don’t always work out on paper!! This was my dilemma on this holiday day … Happy 4th of July to you!! So I’ve decided to share some 4th of July celebration cards I have created in the past …

Four years ago I held a Stampin’ Party and we did some fun projects with the Paper Pumpkin that month … here is what we made: Pinwheels to be used in several different ways!

a treat bag …

and a fun banner …

I used the left over straws in my banner creation and in the card below. I tucked a piece of Bakers twine into the straw to create a fire cracker!!  How clever an I … LOL

Since we’re looking at Paper Pumpkin projects, check out these cute summertime favorites ….

A couple more Red, White and Blue celebration cards …

And I’ll close with two Red, White and Blue cuties of my own … Lilly and Lori my granddaughters!

   

Thank you for checking out my blog on this 4th of July Holiday … I hope you are enjoying your day.

I’ll be back tomorrow with cards highlighting our Designer Paper!!

 

 

Simply Sunday: Happy Birthday

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you are staying cool … even my stamp room got a little warm & muggy! Usually I don’t need an air conditioner, so I gave it to my daughter (they need it more).

OK … Let’s talk stamping! Today I have a cute birthday card that I created for my granddaughter who is turning 14! I also incorporated “designer paper” because it’s on sale this month; Buy 3 get 1 Free!

Today’s fun and simple layout was inspired by a card on Pinterest (they did not have their name on the card) I would love to give them credit!

I used the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series paper (because she’s our track star!) and the Number dies … however, they are no longer in the catalog but you could use the same technique with their name because the Large Letter framelit dies are still available to purchase!

I love how the designer paper “peeks” through to highlight the designer paper.  The greeting comes from the “Happy Birthday Gorgeous” stamp set.

I’m keeping my post short and sweet today so you can get back to your holiday celebrations. We’ve got storms coming so I’m staying in and stamping!

Take good care & thanks for stopping in today.

HOORAY … It’s Your Day!!

Hi Stampers ~

So what did you think of yesterday’s project … cute right! OMGosh today’s project had me tickled pink! Or should I say Lovely Lipstick!!

Yesterday was an interesting day … I’ve been training new employees for the past two weeks so setting up for the weeks events (at work) have been challenging to say the least, however the events started at home! I spilled the coffee grounds, the sugar … oh my, but I wasn’t going to let this start dampen my day! Life is short and is meant to be celebrated so I brushed off those bad vibes and let out a big HOORAY!!

Like I said … this card has me tickled pink!

Again, everything on this card is included in this months kit and I did not add anything outside the kit!! The base kicks off the party and then I added the block of Lovely Lipstick to the center (I’ve loved red and black since the ’80’s!!)

I love the little accent that looks like a marquee so that will be my focal point and will broadcast the HOORAY to announce the celebration!! Too cute!! But I was not done yet!  I added the little green pieces on the sides of the center square to act like moving blinkers calling you to pay attention!! lol  Can you visualize these moving??

Those little green pieces are actually the left over piece from the banners in the kit!! Again, waste not, want not (or so they say) I just thought they looked cool 🙂

I added the two balloons to keep the party going and to create some fun coordination of color! And the sequins added a touch of bling and would highlight/coordinate with the greeting. Overall, I love it!!

I thank you for joining me today, and I hope you enjoyed this card … if so, please leave me a note below.

Have yourself an awesome day ~ HOORAY!!
