Wish Big Birthday

SUO Birthday Wish Big Button Buddies Spring Catalog

Hello Folks. .   well I tried to post this yesterday, but as you already know that didn't happen, so I'm trying again today.  I have a card to share using a former MOJO Sketch and a couple of stamp sets.

My color combo comes from a piece of designer paper from Comfort Cafe' and our beautiful In Color Midnight Muze.  As most MOJO sketches it has several layers, gotta love those layers.  My stamp sets are Button Buddies and Word Play.  You may not be able to see it, but my flower is layered.  I stamped it three times, used the scallop punch on the bottom and then used my paper snips to cute the other two.  It is on dimensionals.  Easy Peasy !!!  Here's the recipe:

  • Cardstock – Midnight Muze and Very Vanilla
  • Inks – Midnight Mze and Summer Starfruit
  • Designer Paper – Comfort Cafe'
  • Stamps – Button Buddies and Word Play (122735/122737 — 120308/120651)
  • Cool Tools – 1 3/4" Scallop Circle
  • Pretties – Rhinestone Jewels and Midnight Muze Ribbon (119246/126847)

Big Big Day

Hello Folks. .   what a great day I had on Saturday.  With a couple of dear friends and 570 other stampers I attended this year's St. Louis Regional at the Convention Center.  It was a full day, we worked on make n takes, watched demonstrations and learned the latest Stampin' Up News.  I was one of the lucky ones, I won a free stamp set as a door prize.  I also swapped with lots of other stampers and over the next few days I will share some cards with you.  Boy, there are a lot of talented and creative people in our area.  Here are just a couple of the many that I received.

Sale A Bration Coming To A Close

Sale A Bration Feeling Sentimental Spring Catalog

Happy Wednesday To Ya, hope you are having a fantastic day.  Today I have a clean, quick and simple card to share.

Sale A Bration  is soon coming to a close. It has been another great year and I want to say Thank You for sharing it with me.  You still have time to place an order, Sale A Bration will end on March 22nd, so give your wish list one more quick look and place your orders. 

My card today is from Feeling Sentimental.  As I get older I'm always feeling sentimental, must come with the territory.  My cardbase is Very Vanilla, topped with our pretty In-Color Primrose Petals and topped again with a piece of designer paper from More Amore Speciality Designer Series Pack #129309.  You can find this paper in our Spring Catalog.  I inked my images and sentiment with Black Staz-On.  My inside is stamped with a HB from Perfectly Penned #'s 122890/122892.  I'm thinking this would make a perfect masculine card despite the rose color. 

I used one of our unique shapes from Apothecary Accents #127003 framelits, sponged the sides with Black Staz-On.  Now looking closer at it I think I would consider sponging around the edges of my DP,just for some added depth.  Next Time. 

Thanks for stoppinby by, I look forward to your comments and questions.  Have a wonderful stamping day.  Until next time.  Toodles

Oh Hello

SUO Birthday Oh Hello Spring Catalog Sale a Bration Paper Pumpkin

Happy Day To You.  Boy oh Boy, I loved this card when I spotted it but OMG it took me three tries to get it done.  It was just one of those days.  LOL  Thank you Jackie for your inspiration.

This is a clean and quick card.  Easy Peasy!!  No cardstock layers, can you believe it.  My cardstock is River Rock, a great neutral.  I used one of our pretty and new paper doilies.  My stamp set is from the Spring Catalog called "Oh Hello".  It also comes as a bundle.  A bundle is the stamp set with matching framelits.  When you bundle you will save approx 15%.  It's wonderful when you can match up a set with some framelits.  Can't go wrong with cool tools.  I stamped the arrows twice on a piece of Whisper White.  It was inked with markers (Crumb Cake, Temp Turquoise, Olive Green and Rich Razzleberry).  Oh I did use another new stamp from the Spring Catalog called "That's A Ticket".  First time using this set but it looks great.  I think it has a sentiment for every occasion.  As my pretty I added a Rich Razzelberry Button from our Sale A Bration Brochure and used some WW Twine for the bow.  On the inside I stamped HB with our "Perfectly Penned" stamp set from the catty. 

I hope you are inspired to put some ink to paper (cardstock).  If you are in need of supplies I would love to be your demonstrator.  Just click on the link below and start shopping.  All you locals out there I would like to invite you to my workshop this month.  It's the third Wed of the month (Mar 20).  Just drop me a line and let me know you would like to come.  I'll have your supplies ready.  We are looking for a couple of new faces.

Thanks for stopping by today, I had a great day people watching at the hospital.  If I can help in any way please let me know, I'm just an email away.  Have a great one.  Until next time Toodles

Butterfly Inspiration

SUO Sassy Salutation Punched Btterfly Punch Thank you Printed Poetry DP Sale A Bration

Hello Folks. . .  it's been  few days since we chatted, hope all is well.  Today I have a card that was inspired my the talented Mary Fish.  She is my mentor for quick and easy cards.  Of course I could't just let it be, so the card I share today is a jazzed up version.  I'm always in need of Thank You cards, I try and send one out for all my on line orders so this was perfect.  I used our new Butterfly punch and punched my opening, backed it with some designer paper.  I did decide to emboss my piece with the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder and used a sentiment from Sassy Salutations.  This could easily be turned into any kind of card you need (birthday, get well, sympathy, whatever).  My inside was left blank for my message.  I hope this inspires you to make a couple of these on your own.  I love having them ready to go when I need them.
