This little horse is having a rockin’ good time for your birthday!
He comes from the Little Cuties stamp set (142990) that’s on page 17 of the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. There are quite a few cuties in this set that can take you right into Easter and other occasions.
I matched him up with the pretty Cupcakes & Carousels Designer series paper stack and did a little paper-piecing for his saddle. I also used the curved piece from the Up & Away Thinlits dies to echo the curve of his rockers.
Here’s the full list of everything I used to create this card.
A blast from the past, do you remember the song by Dusty Springfield called “These Boots are made for Walkin'”?
I thought it was the perfect title for this birthday card.
Don’t they look good paired up with the Cupcakes & Carousels designer paper(page 9 of the 2017 Occasions catalogue)? Just goes to show that you can use our designer papers for just about any theme you want!
TIP: To make the Linen Thread look a little thicker on your project, fold it up several times ( I did 4 here) and do the same for the bow. To make sure it stays where you want it, use Glue Dots to hold it in place.
What do you think of frogs? How about froggy love? That’s what I’m calling this card for today’s post.
Don’t you think this cute little guy would make a great Valentine? The big day is next Tuesday, February 14th and I’m thinking this is the one for my husband!
The layered hearts in the background add just the right message combine with the simple “you” don’t you think?
I went off tradition and used the Pop of Pink Specialty designer paper and paired it up with this cute hostess set, Love You Lots.

Have you seen the bubble bee die in the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle? I realized that I hadn’t used it yet so had fun creating this card with it.
The Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper is a Free choice from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue and is the perfect choice if you love to colour. I used our excellent Stampin’ Write Markers to colour in the flowers and bee and then added the die-cut bumble bee. I think he looks great on that happy greeting, don’t you?
I used the same die to cut out a piece from Daffodil Delight and adhered it on the back and trimmed it so this little guy would be complete with his yellow markings.
Here’s to a birthday surprise and another year full of adventures with the Balloon Adventures stamp set from Stampin’ Up!
The background paper from the Cupcakes & Carousels designer paper stack adds another surprise with the Ferris Wheel in the background. Have you ever ridden on a Ferris Wheel? My stomach did flip-flops when I rode one years ago! It’s fun to watch but not really my “cup of tea”!
How did I get that shape for the greeting? I traced around the stamp lightly with a pencil and then carefully place the inked up stamp. Then all I needed was Paper Snips to cut it out. It’s a great idea to try if you don’t want to cover up the great background paper.

When I saw the Dragonfly Dreams bundle in the Occasions Catalogue, I decided that this bundle really needed to be mine. So, today’s card shows off the die that shows small dragonflies in a row.
I’m also using up a few more piece of the beautiful Falling in Love Designer Series paper – I might have to order more as the package is pretty much empty – it’s just that beautiful! There is also that lovely, shimmery Metallic Ribbon combo pack that’s in the Sale-A-Bration catalogue (page 11).
I wanted to add a little more colour to the row of dragonflies so used a Stamping Sponge to add a bit of Soft Sky ink. Just enough so they would stand out a little more on the card. Then they were attached with small piece of Stampin’ Dimentionals.
I enjoy attending Cynthia’s card and scrapbook classes. Her studio is comfortable and bright. I really like the colour combinations she uses. She is very organized and does the prep work allowing you to concentrate on the techniques. She is very flexible, even if you want to make some changes to make the project “your own”. I highly recommend Cynthia as a demonstrator!
I really enjoy Cynthia’s creative skills and look forward to going to her classes and workshops. Cynthia always has fun and inspirational project ideas. She is always ready to lend a hand and help you where needed, if she doesn’t have an answer for you, she will do her best to find one ASAP. I would go to any one of her classes or workshops anytime for years to come.
Having Cynthia as my upline has been a very pleasant experience for me. She is always available to answer my questions and is very knowledgeable about Stampin’ Up products. I have attended her classes and they are very professional and well organized. I am always excited to share the projects she demonstrates with my customers after attending her classes. She puts a lot of thought and effort into planning her classes. I am very fortunate to have met Cynthia, and am looking forward to learning from her for many years to come. Thanks Cynthia....you are the best!!
Cynthia’s classes are set up very thorough and professional. I learn something new at every class and it is always a fun night out. Cynthia gives a lot of inspiration in everything she does and keeps us looking at her blog. Cynthia knows her product very well and keeps us all informed on new products and sales!
