CHECK OUT THE HAPPY WISHES STAMP SET FROM SALE-A-BRATION

Have you checked out the Happy Wishes stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue?  You really should because it offers so many great wishes to put on your card creations!

I chose to use the large word “best” – it’s so pretty with that row of flowers.  You could leave it all one colour, but I chose to use our Subtles Stampin’ Write Markers(Pool Party, So Saffron, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz) to colour in those perfectly tiny flowers!

This whole card started with the great layout from CAS(E) this sketch and went from there.

Here’s the list of goodies that I used to create this card.

Happy Stamping to you!

PANDAS AND BALLOONS

Pandas and Balloons, the perfect party combination!  That’s the theme for today’s really cute card.

I followed along with the layout from CAS(E) this sketch

and used a post-it note to do some masking.  I wanted to show that bevy of balloons by themselves so laid the post-it over the card front so the panda bear wouldn’t show as I stamped just the balloon image.  Then I stamped the panda image again and cut it out with Paper Snips so he could be popped up onto the greeting banner.  Just plain cute, don’t you think?

Here’s the full list of products that I used.

That’s it for today,  Happy Stamping to you!

PRETTY HEARTS ALL IN A ROW

The big “Heart” day is coming soon so I’m working on some ideas for my upcoming Hearts and Celebrations class.  Today’s card is simple but packs a message!

I’m thinking that one could go the traditional route and re-create this one in blue for the men.  What do you think?

I followed along with the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge

and that is why these hearts are lined up the way they are.  There’s nothing like some great designer paper(Painted with Love Specialty) to add some interest as well.

If you’re looking to create your own Valentine cards, I invite you to sign up for the Feb. 6, 2018 card class.  You will be able to make 4 cards that perfectly send your love to those special people in your life!

Here’s the full list of everything I used for today’s card.

A CLEAN AND SIMPLE BIRTHDAY

Sometimes it’s good to create a simple card that doesn’t have too much “stuff” on it.  Today’s card fits that description!

To match the clean and simple vibe, I cut a piece of designer paper from the 6″ x6″ Picture Perfect Party pack – don’t you just love those candles?  A simple greeting from the Party Pandas stamp set mounted onto a piece cut with the Tailored Tag Punch and this card is ready to send!

I got the simple layout from CAS(E) this Sketch – check it out.

And…. here’s the short list of products that I used.

Have a great day and Happy Stamping!

A SUNSHINE BIRTHDAY CARD

Today’s card highlights a happy, “sunshiney” daisy for a bright and pretty birthday greeting.

I played with the Happy Birthday thinlits die for this one.  Did you know that you can carefully cut the words apart to change the placement to fit your project?  Just a few snips in the right places enabled me to place those happy words just where I wanted them.

I got the idea from the sketch challenge from CAS(E) this sketch .

The letters from the birthday greeting are my interpretation of the scallop on the bottom.

Here’s the full list of everything I used to make this card.

A SILVER CHRISTMAS JUST FOR YOU

Today’s card gives you a touch of silver with these lovely snowflakes!

CAS(E) this sketch posted a good one for this week and I really had to think about the layout of my project.  Here’s their sketch so you can see why I did my card this way.

Starting with the Year of Cheer Specialty designer paper gave me the great idea to add those silver snowflakes from the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlits dies.  Then, it was easy to add the sentiment from Star of Light heat embossed in silver to finish things off!

I’ve always tended toward silver as part of my Christmas decorating but have a friend that really likes gold.  Which is your favourite?

Here’s the list of goodies that I used.

DON’T FORGET THOSE BIRTHDAYS!

Do you have birthdays that happen during the holidays?  Don’t forget to build your stash of birthday cards!  I took some time to create this one using our new Stampin’ Blends.

To get the layout for that lovely, bright flower, I followed along with CAS(E) this sketch.

It took 3 stamp sets to create the background and add the greeting but I loved every minute in creating this card.  Adding the Rhinestones just finished it off perfectly!

SIMPLE GIFTS

Welcome to another edition of Christmas on my blog!  Today’s card is simple with a bit of a slant.

CAS(E) this Sketch has a pretty slanted (lol) sketch to play along with this week so I pulled two patterns from the Christmas Around the World Designer series paper to start.  I cut them out with our Layering Squares Framelits dies and added the greeting from the beautiful Star of Light stamp set(142110).

If you look very closely you can see that I used the Holly Textured Impressions Embossing folder to add texture to the card base.

Here’s the full list of products that I used.  Remember – the Designer Paper Buy 3 Get 1 Free sale is still on until October 31, 2017!  Make sure that you are stocked up!

THE THANKFUL OWL

Happy Tuesday to you!  It took 3 stamp sets to create today’s card but I think this thankful owl was worth it.

I’m playing along with 2 challenges as well, a colour challenge from The Paper Players and the sketch that CAS(E) this sketch posted.

The Colours that The Paper Players asked us to use are Early Espresso, Crushed Curry and Peekaboo Peach.  I had a little trouble adding the Peekaboo Peach but think that the owl looks pretty good in that colour and sitting on that branch.  The card base was embossed using the Woodland embossing folder and you may have to click on the picture to get a good look.

This card was fun to put together and here’s the list of products that I used.
