Simply Sunday: Designer Paper Craze …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Did you know that you can create stunning cards that are quick -n- easy to create?  Anyone who has had a glimpse of our beautiful designer series paper does … check these out. Today I have several cards to share with you that will make you smile … because YOU know, you made this card in a snap between dishes and laundry! lol

Here’s a great tip … if you have designer paper sitting around “waiting to played with” … cut it in half (6 inches) and then cut your 6″ x 12″ inch into 4 inch strips so you will have 6 designer papers ready for cardmaking! Or you could you them as a mat or focal point when scrapbooking.  When your making your card you will trim the 6″ length down to 5-1/4 …. this is the perfect size for your card front and you have a little piece to decorate the inside of your card as well.

Our first card showcases the Bird Ballad designer paper, and the second is Magnolia Lane.  The only difference between the Magnolia cards is the greeting was placed in an empty spot on the pattern … Let the designer paper dictate where your greeting will go.

My last card is the cute little dinosaurs again!!

Thank you so much for sharing a part of your Sunday with me! I appreciate that.  Stop back tomorrow as I will be sharing a card I designed from the beautiful “To A Wild Rose” stamp set.

Thanks again and have a wonderful day ~

Leave a Little Sparkle … Guest Stamper: Kathy C

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I met with my Star’s team (my downline) and one of the cards that was shared pulled at my heartstrings because my little grandbaby girls are in love with unicorns, so I just had to share this with you too.

Kathy made this super cute yet easy card with the new “Leave a Little Sparkle” stamp set from the Annual Catalog.  This stamp set is most definitely on my Wish List … It’s so cute and unicorns are Hot, Hot, Hot right now!!

The beautiful unicorn was stamped in Melon Mamba, Gorgeous Grape and Bermuda Bay … even the colors make this card magical, and the touch of black just adds an extra “pop” to the card.  A perfect birthday card, yet this would also be great for Invitations or for a graduation using the “Make Your Dreams Come True” greeting.

The ideas are just rolling into my head … how about you?  Are you loving this stamp set?

Thank you for coming by today … enjoy your weekend!

It’s a Party …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

A quick post today to share another fun project using the Dino Days bundle.  Since we’re having so much fun with this cute set, why not throw a party! You can create this simple banner for your celebration …

The Dino Days bundle is perfect for birthday celebrations and we have a cute coordinating card as well.  And as you saw yesterday, with my It’s a Boy … It’s a Girl cards, you could easily surprise everyone with a dinomite gender reveal party!!

I hope you enjoyed the cute projects and were inspired … if so, let me know. I would love to hear if you have another great idea on how to use this fun bundle.

Thank you for taking time out of your schedule to visit… Have a great day!

I’ll be back tomorrow with something a little different.

Check out these Cruise Swaps …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share with you a little more from my trip in the form of card samples!! I wish I knew who created these fabulous samples so I could give them credit, because I love their creations!!

I am regretting that I did not get in on the Incentive Trip Swap but I had so much going on with work before I left …. but swaps were posted in our gathering room so I picked out 3 really cute cards.

The first is from one of my favorite sets in the Annual Catalog, the Sailing Home Bundle.  You can find that on page 145.  Don’t have your catalog yet?  Contact me!! I love her layers and the texture she has added to the card. I just love it!

The second of the three I’m sharing today is from the Dino Days Bundle on page 99. This is such a cute suite … I’ll be sharing more with you as my great-grandson is head over heels in love with dinosaurs! Don’t you love they fold of this card …. adds extra fun to the card!

The last sample I want to share with you is too stinkin’ cute …  It was created with the Over the Moon stamp set found on page 32. I think that this would make the perfect little gift at a birthday party (who doesn’t love ) or how about a 4-H project!! Cute hand-out at the County or State Fairs as well.

I hope you enjoyed these cute samples as much as I did when I saw them!!

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

Aren’t these cards just stunning! I love the look of stained glass in combination with the “Illuminated Christmas” from the Holiday Catalog. The O, Holy Night card is my favorite.

The vellum is subtle and uncolored on this card but it still makes a statement.  The beautiful star that draws your eye to the card and then the use of the Stained Glass Thinlits Dies as it highlights the Three Wisemen… I love it!!

The “Hope” Card is beautiful too with it’s colored vellum. This card also used the Stained Glass Thinlits Dies and the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder. What’s neat about this card is, you have a beautiful layout now, and you can transform it just by switching color pallets … the blues would be gorgeous too.

Remember … The dies, folders, and designer papers from the Annual Catalog will be on sale. Save 10% on the majority of the products needed to create these cards.

Let me know if you need any help placing your order, or if you just have a question about it.

Thank you for the visit today,

Hope your day is a good one.
