Summer Time Fun With Summer Smooches Suite

SUO Summer Smooches Suite Birthday Card

Hello Folks. . .  Happy Thursday To Ya

You know how I love florals and whimsy.  This month Stampin' Up has a touch of both.  The new stamp set Bright Blossoms is just as cute as a bug in a rug.  It combines flowers and whimsy, what can be better. 

My card today is another case, this time from Patty Bennett at Patty's Stamping Spot.  I am using the designer paper from the Summer Smooches Suite.  Bright and cheery, just speaks summer to me.  The Summer Smooches Suite is available only during the month of April  and then you will have to wait till the new catalog goes live to order it again.  So get crackin' and get a head start on your stash.  Oh did I forget to mention that some of the products will not be in the new catalog (fabric brads, decor' elements). 

Click here to get a nice look at all the products available.  I also have a list of product names and item numbers for your convenience.  Be sure and shop in my ONLINE STOREIts open 24/7 for all your Stampin Up shopping needs.  If you need help on how best to spend you dollars, just give me a holler here.

You just might want to take a peek at the Clearance Rack.  They just added 55+ new items for you to choose from.  Some great deals over there.  Punches galore plus other good stuff.  Punches are the best tools around.  They make crafting fun, quick, and easy not to say the least perfect. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Maybe I'll do some weed control today.  Yard work is never done and I do enjoy getting out in such nice weather.  You never know what the next day is gonna bring here in Missouri.  LOL  Take care and have a wonderful day.  Toodles

SUO Baby Shaker Card With Swirls and Curves Verses

While browsing the web today for some ideas, my MOJO has gone flat, I came across this very cute baby card over on LeAnn Graff's site Flowerbug's Inkspot.  She specializes in punch art.  My sentiments are from Swirls and Curves Verses (ret) and Tiny Tags W118091/C118592.  My colors are Whisper White, Bashfull Blue and Delicate Dots DP also retired.  My cool tools are the 1 1/4" Circle Punch (which I believe is on the clearance rack), the Scallop Circle, Scallop Trim Border Punch and the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.  I used 5/8" Whisper White Satin Ribbon and a little Natural White Embossing Pwd along with my Heat Tool.  My beads are non SU.  TIP:  For the rattle, punch your circle first then center the Scallop Circle over it.  Much easier to line up.   

Oh, did I forget to mention this is a shaker card.  So fun and easy to do.  If you don't know what I am talking about hop on over to Splitcoaststampers and search for Shaker Card.  All the instruction are there for you.

Create A Cupcake Or Two

Stampin Up Create A Cupcake Build a Cupcake Punch Summer Smooches Birthday

Hello Friends. . .  Happy Tuesday to ya.  Today I have a cute birthday card to share using an ole' favorite Create A Cupcake and coordination punch. 

I started out with a piece of Daffodil Delight and embossed it with our Perfect Polka Dot Eembossing Folder.  Next I used a 4" Paper Doily.  You can get these at your local box stores.  Next I die cut the scallop circle from our Perfect Pennants Die #123126.  My stamp set is Creat A Cupcake W121915/C121982 and I used the coordinating punch Cupcake Builder #121807.  Such a darling combination.  Makes for a great looking and fun card. 

My sentiment is from A Word For You W117032/C120528.  You have seen me use it several times.  The font is so cute and fits on a 1" strip beautifully.  I added some Certainly Celery 3/8" Satin Ribbon #119963 and a cute flower button.  I think the button comes from last years SAB collection.

That's basically it.  It's a simple, clean card that could be used for an adult or toddler.  I hope you enjoyed today's card and it inspires you to make one of your own.  There's nothing better than to put a smile on someone's face with a handcrafted card make with love.

Just Add A Sentiment

Stampin Ups Elements of Style and Field of Flowers Brithday

Elements of Style and Field of Flowers

Hello Folks, happy day to ya.  I'm being bad today, I'm supposed to go swimming.  I have been out and about all week with the girls and I decided to take a day off.  Clean, create and inspire is my mission today.  LOL  Let's have a little fun.

Today I have a formal kind of card to share.  While browsing one day I came across a beauty on Dawn Griffith's site and decided to do one similar.  My card base is the normal A2 card in Basic Black.  Topped with a piece of Very Vanilla.  I made my own background paper using an image from Elements of Style W118611/C120045.  My next layer is a 3.5 x 3.75 rectangle of Basic Blacktopped with a piece of First Edition Specialty DP #121878 cut 1/8" smaller.  I then took Stampin' Up Field of Flowers W122760/C122762 and stamped over my DP.  This is a great technique and adds so much depth to the image.  Love it!!!!!!  Experiment with other DP papers and image stamps.  You will be amazed at what you can create.  Soooo much fun!!!!!!  My sentiment is HB from Teeny Tiny Wishes #115970 punched with our Word Window Punch #119857 and the Modern Label Punch #119849.  I added some 5/8" Basic Black Satin Ribbon #117285.  Just to take it up a notch I stamped friends from our Tiny Tags Set #W118091/C118592 and punched it with our Jewlery Tag Punch #117190 and attached it with a safety pin from the Vintage Trinkets #118764

JUST A COUPLE OF TIPS:  When using Tiny Tags, stamp you images on a piece of scrap paper first, then punch with the Jewlery Punch.  Use the punch upside down.   You can see what you are doing much easier.  Also punch your hole for the top before you punch it out.  Much easier.  This would made a great sympathy card as well, just change out your sentiment for whatever occasion you need.  I often leave off my sentiment and add it later for the occasion I need.  You never know what life is going to bring and it's nice to be ready. 

Take care folks and thanks for stopping by today.  If you have any questions please contact me, I'm here to help with all your Stampin' Up needs.  And of course if you need supplies I sure do appreciate your shopping at my ON LINE STOREIt's open 24/7.  Or if that's not your thing email me and I will gladly place it for you.  Have a wonderful day.  I'm off to do a little cleaning.  Toodles
