Moving Forward Juvenile/Toddler Card


Hello Folks. . .  Happy Day To Ya.  Today I have a very cute card to share using a retired set "Moving Forward"  I was inspired by a video I watched on another site.  It was not a Stampin' Up site so I switched it out to use all Stampin' Up products.  My card base is More Mustard, boy it has been a while since I have used this color.  Pretty don't you think?  My next layer is Night of Navy and my third layer is Whisper White.  My inks are Night of Navy and More Mustard with a touch of Pumpkin Pie.  To do the sun, cut out a template with a circle punch or die cut.  Secure you card down with some removalbe adhesive and place your template in the upper left hand corner.  Be sure and off set it so it appears to be peaking down at you.  Next sponge around the circle with a sponge daubler.  For the rays, I used a piece of WW cut at approx. 1 inch by 6 inches and started making my rays. I applied a little more pressure at the top and then eased up towards the bottom.  Space over a little each time and keep going until you get all the way around your circle.  My water is Coastal Cabana and punched with our Ribbon Punch, my designer paper is from a retired paper pack, the ribbon is Night of Navy 3/8 wide and my sentiment is from another retired set All Year Chear III.  They are nested on a couple of squares cut using my nestabilities.  The heart was an after thought.  I used our Owl Punch and attched with a small piece of dimensional.  The inside sentiment is another retired birthday phrase.  

My thoughts on this card was to create a fun juvenille/toddler type of card. I even thought it would look cute to have the age cut out and placed in the top left corner but I'll wait on that until I get ready to use it.

The Holdiay Catalog will be winding down soon, so if you want anything from it now is the time to place your orders.  It will end on January 5th and the new Occasion Catalog will begin on January 6th.  Sale a Bration also begins on January 6th.  Remember you get FREE products when you place a $50 order before s/h.  Click here to view the Holiday Catalog.

Year End Close Out Sale


Hello Friends – hope all is well and you enjoyed a wonderful Christmas.  We are having a wonderful day here in MO, the temp is over 50 degrees.  I can take many many more of days like this.  

Our year end close out is in full swing.  If you would like to check out some great deals please click here.  

I'm trying to concentrate on making some birthday cards.  I have a couple relative birthdays coming up and they always like to have a stack of cards.  I used two versatile stamp sets  "Work of Art" and "Four Feathers".  When Four Feathers was released I must admit it didn't catch my eye.  But boy oh boy I was so wrong.  These two sets are just wonderful.  Work of Art is a wonderful set to display your creativity and Four Feathers is just a great all occasion set to have around.  A lot of us struggle with masculine cards and this is a great set for that.


This is one of those cases where a single layered card can make such a WOW statement.  It's made easy with these two sets.  I used four ink colors – Island Indigo (stamped off four times) to get my background, Early Expresso for some depth, Hello Honey and Tempting Turquoise.  Used the matching framelits for easy cut out and added a button with a pretty twine bow for a little pizzazz.  My sentiments all came from Endless Birthday Wishes.  On the inside I used an ol' faithful the ever versatile "Sassy Salutations".  

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will visit again soon.  The New Occasion Catalog and Sale A Bration Brochure will be released on Jan 6th.  For you new folks, every $50 purchase before shipping and handling you can select a FREE product from the Sale A Bration Brochure.  Now is a great time to check out your wish list and recieve some free products.  Click below to place your order in my Online Store.  I truly appreciate all you do.  Until next time have a wonderful stamping day.  Toodles




French Fry Gift Box

Helo Folks. . .  Hope you're keeping up with all the hussle and bussle of the season.  Here is a cute little French Fry Gift Box.  You can make this any size.  Mine is small (6 x 6 square)  just perfect for a Secret Santa or Teacher Gift.  I used various Christmas themed designer paper and a stamp set called "Sparkley and Bright".  It has been retired for several years.  I use it often, it fits nicely in our Circle Punches.  Here's a few instructions.  If you still have trouble folding this you can google "french fry box" and come up with several videos.


First take your 6 x 6 inch square and fold it corner to corner,
then take the top piece and fold it down
matching it to the bottom forming a triangle,


Take the triangle you just made and put it
back flush with your top corner., Then take
the right hand side and match it to the fold
mark you just made.


Place some adhesive on the bottom of your triangle and fold it over to the
 right side.  Crease all your folds with a bone folder..


Take a deep breath you're almost there.  Bring the top
piece and fold it down.  Use sticky tape to hold this down.
Decorate as you wish.  Oh one more thing I did pinch up the bottom
to make it look just like a french fry box.  

I hope this didn't confuse you too much.  Like I mentioned you can google this for a visual.  Thanks for stopping by.  I truly appreciate all your support.  I'll wish you Merry Christmas now just in case I don't get back here before then.  To place your orders please click on the link below.  Stampin' Up has several promotions going on right now as the end of the year close outs.  Click here to see if any of them are for you.  Remember – Sale A Bration is coming soon along with our new Occastion Catalog,  FREE products, you can't beat that.  Take Care Toodles
