Happy Birthday Gorgeous Card

How about some glitz and glamour in a birthday card?  I have already used this “Happy Birthday” Thinlit from Stampin’ Up! more times than I can count!  I’m digging the font, and the size!  It fills up my card so nicely and it can even stand alone if you don’t want alot of fuss on your card.  This time I went for the Gold Glitter Paper and used the NEW Sizzix Adhesive Sheets.  These are…

Special Celebrations Banner Card

Today’s card is another one of my Stamp Club cards.  We are having class tonight, and I’m featuring some new stamps sets and new colors that Stampin’ Up! has recently introduced in their new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  I received inspiration for this card from Pinterest, it is NOT an original.  Life is too crazy these days for me to spend alot of time creating original designs.  I enjoy the process of cardmaking, but more often…

Beautiful Bouquet Anniversary Card

I’ve enjoyed a small amount of creative time using new stamp sets, new colors, and new accessories from Stampin’ Up!  It’s always an exciting time of year when the new goodies start arriving!  This is the first of 3 cards for my June Stamp Club.  It’s no surprise that I’m drawn to all of the new shades of pink…….my favorite color!  And who can resist a new floral stamp set?  But what I was REALLY…

Upcoming Events

I have two opportunities to come stamp at my home during the month of June.  I am going to briefly tell you about them and post the samples this week and next.  I hope you’ll join me if you are local, and would like a chance to have a “ladies night out” with some papercrafting, snacks, and friends! Tuesday, June 13th will be my monthly Stamp Club group.  You do not have to be a…

Definitely Dahlia Gift Card Set

I had a coworker ask for me to create a couple of Gift Sets for her to give a loved one.  She is an elderly lady, so I wanted something with a more traditional feel.  I packaged them in some clear card boxes that I purchased on Etsy.  I like keeping these on hand for gift-giving.  I usually add a wide grosgrain or sheer ribbon and a gift tag for the recipient.  Las year when…

Time for Graduation Cards!

It’s time to create some graduation cards and send well wishes to the “Class of 2017” graduates!   I found some inspiration on Pinterest, so I can’t claim this idea entirely, but I am using different color schemes to coordinate with the school colors in our area.  This one was created for a customer order for one of my coworkers.  She loved it, and I hope it will give you some inspiration, also! If you…

Eastern Palace Card #5

I enjoyed making another card showcasing the Eastern Medallion Framelits.  Still can’t get over the intricacies of these dies!  Take note of the little dabble of gold accents that I added to this one.  I used the Layering Circle Framelits to cut out the Very Vanilla circle, the gold scalloped circle, and the outside shape of the Lemon Lime Twist medallion.  The dies in the Eastern Medallion set are very versatile — and there are…

Eastern Palace Card #4

Sometimes less is more.  I feel that this card is one of those examples.  And talk about fast and easy……wow!  Notice the stitched details around these square shapes?  This attention to detail is what adds a little “punch” to a simple card.  And I didn’t work any harder to create this……in fact, it was easier than ever.  Check out the Stitched Shapes Framelits in the supply list below.  You’ll get circles, squares, and ovals in…

Eastern Beauty Card #2

This is another gorgeous sample using the Eastern Palace Premium Bundle.  I wish you could see how pretty the gold foil is on the Designer Series Paper.  It really doesn’t photograph all that well, but it is so pretty in real life! This is such a very simple design and the DSP measures 3 3/4″ square so you can get 9 cards like this from one sheet of 12×12 DSP.  I like to create cards…
