We just celebrated my grandma's 90th birthday. Here she is with our kids. Isn't she cute! I decided to get out my Brusho Crystal Colour to make her birthday card. I thought it would be nice to make a background for the large flower that I cut out using the Rose Garden thinlits. This is the card I made: I cut out the flower image first using shimmer white paper and saved the piece of the outline of the flower. I put the outline of the flower down and used it as a stencil to get the area inside of... Continue reading

I am really liking our new Whisper White Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes. I used then to make this Valentine. Our Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series paper is so fun! It has shiny gold on one of the sides. I used Gold Foil paper to make the larger heart. I thought our Love Mini Tinsil Trim would be a good accent for the card. The rest of the supplies are below. tams# 20081 Product List Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes [145583] $8.00 Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper [145580] $13.00 Love Mini Tinsel Trim Combo Pack...

My son just turned 18. He is our oldest, and this is not going tp be an easy Spring with college choices and graduation. This is the card I made for him. It is a super quick card using Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper. The die cut numbers personalize it a little. It is his girlfriend's birthday this week too so I made this card for her using our Whisper White Narrow notecards and envelopes. I love the size! I used the same numbers and a different designer series paper from the same pack. tams# 19953 Product List Picture... Continue reading

When I saw the Fruit Basket Stamp Set, I thought it would be fun to do a non-traditional valentine. I saw a sample online by Amy K that used the heart framelit with the pears so I decided that would be a great way to have the sentiment and pears. I love the Tutti-Frutti 6X6 designer series pack. There are so many fun designs on it! I bought 2! tams# 19724 Product List Fruit Basket Photopolymer Stamp Set [145833] $16.00 Tutti-Frutti 6" X 6" (15.2 X 15.2 Cm) Designer Series Paper [145606] $10.00 Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies [141707] $35.00...

The leaves in Minnesota are turning right now, and it is so pretty! Each day it looks a little different. I just love Fall leaves. I wanted to create a card using the leaves in Colorful Seasons with different shades in it. There are a few ways you can do this, but I chose to use stamp pads and a spritzer. To do this, pick 2 or more colors of stamp pads and stamp starting with the lightest color first. Take the second color and add it around the edges and a little in the middle. Spray a little water...

Great Big Greetings has HUGE greetings in it. I made this card using the Spritzed Block technique I showed in my last blog post. I used Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Pool Party, Fresh Fig, and Peekaboo Peach markers on the E Acrylic Block. I then Spritzed it with water using our spritzer. It creates this fun background. Aren't the colors fun together? Sometimes when looking for inspiration for color combinations, I look to the colors in our Designer Series Paper packs. These colors I pulled from Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper. Each time you make a background using this... Continue reading

I am loving the Colorful Seasons Stamp set. There are so many possibilities with it! This card makes me smile as I think of sitting in a chair like this at the beach reading while my family surfs. That is a favorite family trip for us- to the ocean. For this card I used markers on an acrylic block, and then spritzed it with water and then stamped with it. I made a little video showing how to do this technique. It is a quick way to make a background. I ran out of space on my phone so it... Continue reading

I am having so much fun creating with Stampin Up's Color Theory Bundle. The first several cards I made used the colors in the Designer Series Paper stack, and so I decided to create a card that isn't bright. It is my first time using Tranquil Tide, a new In Color. I used the stamp pad, card stock, and ribbon. I like how the thinlit die empresses around the die cut image. I decided to use our Petal Burst embossing folder to add texture to the leaf. For the ribbon, I cut the Tranquil Tide ribbon a little wider than... Continue reading

What do you think of the new Sale-A-Bration items? Which is your favorite? I wanted to design a card using the new Sale-A-Bration item 6X6 assorted glimmer paper right away. I was excited to see it with 3 fun colors- Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaroon, and Sweet Sugarplum. This is the card I came up with. I am able to die cut 4 circles from each 6X6 piece plus have extra strips for the bottom of the card. I die cut the circle and then also used the same circle die to cut out the "window" on the Basic Gray card... Continue reading

My friend turned 50 today and her husband had a surprise party for her on Friday. I knew I wanted to make a card using Number of Years stamp set. This is what I came up with. This is the first time I opened my Layering Circles Framelits. I was slow to buying them because I already had Circle Framelits that we used to sell. When they went on sale in December, I decided it was time to get them. I should not have waited. I LOVE them! It is so great having the layered scallops for the circles. I... Continue reading

I have been creating some cards using Basket of Wishes stamp set for my Stamps in the Mail. Here is one I made for October. I used an aqua painter to color in the basket and vegetables. I used my stamp pads for the ink. If you squeeze the lid of the pad, some ink will get on the lid, and then I use the aqua painter to apply it to the card. tams# 9910 Product List Basket Of Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set [142200] Old Olive 8-1/2" X 11" Card Stock [100702] Crushed Curry 8-1/2" X 11" Card Stock [131199]...

I have been really enjoying making cards with Bunch of Blossoms stamp set. I made this card for Stamps in the Mail. I then made 20 + to have on hand for birthday cards (changing the greeting of course!) I love the words that come in this set. This is the card I made. I used the big shot and Lovely Lace embossing folder to create the background. When using Bunch of Blossoms, I stamp the petals on strips of paper so they are easier to punch. The punch punches out the petals, the leaves and the center of the... Continue reading
