Another Thank You

Another Thank You

I have been experimenting with my camera again.  I just haven’t been very happy with how my pictures are showing up online.  Honestly, I have no idea what I am doing, but I have been playing with the settings and they seem to be getting better.  I probably should take a photography course!

In any case, this color combination is one of my favorite.  It looks very summery yet so soft.  The colors I used are So Saffron, Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana.  I used two different stamp sets with this card.  One is Another Thank You and the other is Four You.  The pennant in the background is a new Big Shot Bigz Die called Party Pennants Bigz L.

Crazy String Art

Fabulous Four

Do you remember a long time ago when we used to make String Art?  I remember doing this when my boys were young.  Of course, being boys, they wrapped the string around everything they could find, including each other!

I made this card using Markers and a ruler.  I just randomly placed the ruler from one side to the other and drew the lines.  I probably got a little carried away and I had to make myself stop.  I used the 2014/2016 In Color Markers.  The sentiment is from Fabulous Four which has 4  (of course) large sentiments.  It didn’t take long to make, which is my kind of card!

A Groovy Kind of Love

Groovy Love

Every time I looked at this stamp set in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog, I started to sing the song Groovy Kind of Love.  Depending on your age, you listened to The Mindbenders or Phil Collins sing this song (unless, of course, you are too young to remember either of them).  Before anyone says a word, I did have to look up the name of the band that originally sang it in the the 60’s (The Mindbenders).  In any case, I had to have and I still sing the song whenever I get it out.

Another fun thing I did was this card is to use my Daffodil Delight Blendabilities to color the Rhinestones in the corner.  Blendabilities are perfect for this.  The color stays on, unlike our regular markers.  Now you can have Rhinestones in any of the colors the Blendabilities come in.  Cute, huh?

Summer Silhouettes

Flower Patch

I am a sucker for flower stamps.  I think I must own just about every one there is in the new catalog.  This time I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Summer Silhouettes.  It was a quick and easy card to make.  I didn’t use punches or my Big Shot (can you believe that?).  It just required a little stamping, cutting a piece of Designer Series Paper from the pack called Designer Soiree and tying a piece of Coastal Cabana Bakers Twine around it.  It could not be much easier than that.  Whenever someone says they don’t have time to stamp, I tell them they could make a card in 5 minutes or less!  It is true!!

Honeycomb Hello Birthday

Honeycomb Hello

I love the Designer Washi Tape that Stampin’ Up! offers.  There are a bunch of new colors and designs that can be used to add a little color to your cards.  It is so easy to use and adhere to the cardstock and it matches the colors that Stampin’ Up! has.  The Tangerine Tango Washi Tape on this card is from the Retro Fresh set and the Bermuda Bay Washi Tape I used is from the Project Life Everyday Adventure Accessory Pack.

The sentiments stamped on the tag are from Honeycomb Hello.  They fit perfectly inside the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.  The Bakers Twine is in Tangerine Tango and Bermuda Bay.

Endless Birthday Wishes Is Back!

Endless Birthday Wishes

The Photopolymer Stamp set called Endless Wishes is now available to order again.  When it first appeared it flew out the door like hotcakes.  It has been a couple of months now and Stampin’ Up! once again has it in stock.  This makes me very happy because I love this set.  By the way, I have a sneak peek for you.  Do you remember the set called Endless Wishes?  It was a Christmas Photopolymer stamp set that lasted about a week before it sold out.  I have some great news.  Endless Wishes is in the Holiday Catalog that comes out September 1st!

I also used the Project Life Framelits called Cards & Labels to make this card.  Even if you are not into scrapbooking or Project Life, you would still love these Framelits.

Petite Petals Birthday Card

Petite Petals

I saw a card similar to this one on Pinterest and thought it was really cute so I decided to make it but changed it up a bit.  I used the stamp set called Petite Petals that has a matching punch also called Petite Petals.  I decided to use most of the colors in the Stampin’ Up! Brights Collection to make it bright and cheery.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Brights Color Collection Paper Stacks.  I love these Paper Stacks because they have 4 sheets of every color in the family.  The sentiment is from the stamp set called Yippee Skippee.  I thought it was fitting because it looks like a happy card to me!
