BIRTHDAY’S AND COOKIES GO TOGETHER

Who likes chocolate chip cookies?  Me, me, me!  I had fun with the Nothing’s Better Than Bundle for today’s very orange card!

With, those delicious chocolate chips cookies!!!  I am playing along with two challenges today.  The Paper Players,

and, SUO Challenges which is to feature birthdays!

Who says you can’t have cookies instead of cake for a birthday!  I used the Word Wishes Dies(151816)  for the birthday greeting and added the extra challenge of using our Foam Adhesive Sheets(152815) to cut out those words.  They pop those words up nicely, but make a note that you really need to carry a lot of patience when popping out all of the tiny bits, lol.  Ask me how I know!

Here’s the list of products used.

Enjoy these cookies and happy stamping!

A BEVY OF WINTER TULIPS

Ok, I know that tulips don’t bloom up here right now, but don’t we all need a pretty blast of summer colours right now?

There they are!  I used the Timeless Tulips Bundle to create this bevy of blooms and a “few” of the inks from the Brights Colour Collection!  The matching punch in this bundle made it super easy to build this bouquet!  I also used a piece of designer paper from the Playing with Patterns collection(152490) which is 15% off right now!

Where did I get this ideas for summer colours?  From the new challenge from SUO Challenges(Stampin’ Up Only).

I took on the challenge of using every one of these beautiful colours so my tulip garden would shine!

IT TAKES A VILLAGE

It took a village – of 3 stamp sets, lol to create today’s card.  And… a little water colouring too!

There’s nothing like a bright, pretty card to put a smile on one’s face!  I took the combination of colours from a stamping group that I follow on Facebook and went to work.  Those pretty blue flowers are from the Forever Blossoms stamp set(151457) and the matching Cherry Blossom dies(151456).

They were first stamped with Pacific Point ink and then I took a Water Painter and pulled the colour into the middle of each flower. TIP:  It’s best to use Shimmery White cardstock as it doesn’t pill.

Then, out came the Forever Fern Bundle(154094) stamped with Shaded Spruce and Crushed Curry Ink.  Next, for the sentiment, Many Mates stamp set(152633).

Here’s the list of the products used.

I had fun with this card and hope that it brings a smile to your face!  Happy Stamping!

LEAVES, LEAVES, LEAVES

Happy Labour day to you!  Today’s card features leaves, and lots of leaves for sure!

While I was playing around on the web, I saw a card with this layout and decided to make it my own.  The background of leaves comes from the Forever Greenery designer paper pack(152492).  There are so many beautiful images in this package that it’s sometimes hard to choose!

I added the die-cuts that are found in the Well Written Dies(151816).  Words are not the only thing included in this package!

I’m playing along with the new SUO Challenge – which is to feature die-cutting and punching, for this as well.

Here’s the list of products used.

I’m off to do some more stamping – hit while the ideas are flowing – right!

Happy Stamping to you!

KNOW THAT YOU ARE LOVED

Love is the word for these difficult times!  So it’s important to let the ones in our lives know that!  How about saying it with a pretty card!

I choose to use this card to express my feelings and kept it pretty simple so the message will stand out!

Those lovely sunflowers were heat embossed with Gold Emboss powder and so was that loving greeting!  The background paper is from the Gilded Autumn Specialty designer pack and was where I got the golden idea.

This lovely layout comes from Freshly Made Sketches!

PARTY HEARTY WITH THESE ZANY ZEBRAS

Why not start the week off in party mood with these cute little zebras!  I smiled heartily when I saw this Zany Zebras stamp set(152536)!

I started out wanting to play along with the new Freshly Made Sketches layout and went from there.  Those triangles came from the Playing with Patterns designer paper pack but I wanted to amp it up a bit – so – here comes the zebras!

This is where the Stamparatus146276) comes in very handy, as I stamped them first with Jet Black Stazon ink and then was able to over-stamp with Versamark!  And yes, each one was cut out with scissors to be placed strategically around the Gold Hoop!

Here’s the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  And, I just want to say Thank You for choosing this card as one of the favourites for last week’s challenge.

Here’s the list of all of the products that I used for today’s card

YOU GOTTA LOVE THOSE TREATS

The Pampered Pets Bundle(154069) is so darn cute so I used it to send a treat-laden card made with love!

This would be great for the cat-lover in your life and check out that background of fish, paw prints and hearts!  So cute!

I played along with the new CAS(E) this sketch layout for this and adding those extra hearts was absolutely necessary!

Here’s the list of products for you.  Also, my Online Store has a completely new look so you will be able to check it out when you click on the thumbnails.

LOVE BLOSSOMS

When the flowers bloom – love blossoms!  That is what was on my mind while checking out our flower garden!  So, why not create a card with the Forever Blossoms stamp set?

There’s so new things on this card too!  I received my pre-order for the Aug – Dec. Mini Catalogue and fell in love with the Gilded Autumn Specialty designer paper so just had to use a piece for this card!  Which led me to going with a gold theme!  Love it!

Here’s the product list for you – just remember that the designer paper and the new punch will not be available until tomorrow, Aug. 4th!

TODAY IS YOUR DAY

Friday is here and if you’re celebrating, today is all about you!  I haven’t used the Free As A Bird(149468) stamp set in a while so pulled it out for this card!

I used one of the patterns in the Forever Gold Laser-cut specialty paper and it is really hard to get a good picture of it.  So, I moved it to another room with lots of sunlight!

This layout comes from The Paper Players challenge for this week and the gold piece worked perfectly for this sketch.

A special greeting was called for, so I added one from the Many Mates stamp set(152633).  It has many great sentiments, so make sure to check it out.

SUNNY BIRTHDAY WISHES

We have lots of sun here and I sure hope that it sticks around for a long while!  The sunflowers on this card reflect these sunny days!

I keep going to this Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle(154065) because it just brings a smile to my face!  Is there anything more sunny and happy than a sunflower?

I also played around with the Well Written Dies(151816) for the birthday greeting.  Check them out, there are lots of choices for greetings along with a few cute images too!
