I have to say, I do have an amazing life! I just got back from seeing all my grandchildren and getting to spend the weekend with them. I also got to see two out of three of my boys and their wives. Emory is turning two today so we all met last weekend to celebrate her birthday. I can not believe how quickly these past two years have gone. It was amazing and I will share pictures with you later this week.
I made this card using the stamp set called Amazing Life which is in the 2019 Stampin’ Up!® Occasions Catalog. This stamp set is paired with the Rectangle Stitched Dies (which is my favorite thing in the whole catalog!). You can save 10% if you buy them in a Bundle. I use the Rectangle Stitched dies all the time (as I am sure you can tell).
This is a quick and easy card to make. I first stamped the sentiment and the cake in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then I cut them out using one of the Rectangle Stitched Dies. Then I colored them with Pool Party Stampin’ Blends. I ran a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Highland Heather cardstock using the Tin Tile Embossing Folder through the Big Shot. Then I added one of the sequins from the Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequins.
Happy Birthday, Emy! You are as sweet as can be no matter what your parents try to tell me!

This is the third card we made at our monthly stamp club meeting this month. All the products we used (except the cardstock) are from the 2018 Stampin’ Up!® Holiday Catalog. If you need a copy of the catalog just let me know. They are free to pick up.
The stamp set we used is called Wishing You Well. It is one of the Stampin’ Up!® DisINKtive® stamps. “DisINKtive® stamps create different opacities in a single stamped image for realistic depth and intensity”. The best way to ink one of these stamps is to use a Stamping Sponge or a Sponge Dauber.
I first stamped the bouquet in Granny Apple Green. Then I stamped the bow on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock in Grapefruit Grove and cut it out by hand. I used a Glue Dot to attached the bow. I added a few Frosted and Clear Epoxy Droplets to add a little dimension.
Then I ran a piece of Whisper White cardstock through the Big Shot using the new Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. I love this folder and it is extremely popular right now. It is absolutely gorgeous with any cardstock but also looks great with Foil Paper or the new Galvanized Metallic Paper.
Here is another card using the new stamp set from the 2018 Stampin’ Up!® Holiday Catalog. It is called Country Home. I love the two containers that are in this set as well as the flowers and sentiments. It is a great stamp set to color too! I used my Stampin’ Markers this time.
Country Home is part of a suite of products that Stampin’ Up!® puts together. They make it so easy to put matching products together for you. In this Country Lane Suite there is also Designer Series Paper called Country Lane, 3/16″ Braided Linen Ribbon, and amazing Embossing Folder called Tin Tile and Galvanized Metallic Paper. I used the Tin Tile Embossing Folder o the Galvanized Metallic Paper on this card. It is just like an old tin ceiling you would find in an old farm house. There are also other products that go in this suite. The whole suite is on page 43 of the Holiday Catalog.
The colors I used for this card are Merry Merlot (a deep rich burgundy color), Crushed Curry and Old Olive.
