I love Designer Series Paper (for the rest of this post I will call it DSP because it is just too long to type out!). It is the best way to make a quick and easy card that looks great too! To make this card, I just cut two pieces of DSP from the Best Route pack, adhered it to a piece of Mango Melody cardstock and adhered that to a 8.5″ x 5.5″ piece of Pineapple Punch cardstock folded in half. Then I just stamped the sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and cut it out using the Everyday Label Punch. I think this would make a great masculine card the way it is or you can add a flowers or some sequins to make it more feminine.
These are the DSP paper packs that are eligible for this Buy 3 Get 1 Free promotion.
I was going to tell you which are my favorites, but honestly I love them all. This sale ends tomorrow so don’t miss out!

Here is another color combination that I would never think of putting together in the past. I have been having a lot of fun experimenting with colors and I really love how this one came out.
To make this card I first cut out all the different circles using the Eastern Medallions Thinlits. The colors I used are Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana. I popped you the smaller circles using Dimensionals. Then I cut out the word “celebrate” using the Celebrate You Thinlits in Grapefruit Grove. Grapefruit Grove is one of the new InColors.
The sentiment is from the stamp set called Happy Birthday Gorgeous. The stamp really says It’s Your Day but I masked off the word “It’s” before stamping it. This is super easy to do. I just cover the word I do not want to stamp with tape. Then I ink the stamp and remove the tape before stamping on my cardstock.
I suppose every place you live (well except maybe Hawaii) has its good weather and its bad weather. Right now is the hardest time of year for us. I don’t think I have seen the sun in weeks (or months) and it is very dreary. Today it is pouring rain so the world is a big slushy, muddy mess. Ask me again in July or August and I will have a whole different outlook. It is so beautiful up here during the summer months. I just wish they lasted longer!
This dreary weather made me think of Florida and wishing I was there. It would be awesome to be sitting on the beach, under the tiki bar awning and having a Pina Colada. The best I could do is come up with a card that represents that idea.
I made this card using a bunch of different products and stamp sets. The glass is cut out of Color Theory Designer Series Paper using the Coffee Cups Framelits. The umbrella is from Weather Together and Umbrella Weather Framelits. The orange is from the stamp set called Lemon Zest and punched out using the matching Lemon Builder Punch. The seagulls are from High Tide and last but not least, the sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous. It just goes to show you that Stampin’ Up! products are great to mix and match!
I love Valentine’s Day because it is a day to show the ones you love, that you love them and are thinking about them. You don’t have to buy presents for each other on this day. All you need to do is to send a card. What is even better is to send them a homemade card. It shows you spent a little ahead of time thinking about them and wanting to let them know. Each card you make is different even if you use the same design. Each card you make is for a specific person whom you care about. What more could you ask for? I love each and every Valentine I receive in the mail because of this. I think we should start a #BRINGVALENTINESBACK day!
I made this card using the stamp set called Heart Happiness. I know you have seen me use it a lot but I think it is very cute. I stamped each heart and then cut them out using the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies. The sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.
Last week BS & J Productions did a Stamp Off Sketch Challenge. Sometimes we set up these challenges weeks ahead of time. Sometimes I see the challenges and get a card in my head so I make it a long time before it is scheduled to post. This is the case with this card. I saw the sketch, made the card and then promptly forgot about it. I was going through my stash today and found it. Sometimes it is hard to get old and lose my mind!
So, again, here is the sketch challenge from last week:
Funny how my card I posted for the official challenge (HERE) looks exactly the same except for the different products! I guess that is what a sketch challenge is all about.
This time I used the stamp set called Daisy Delight. This was the most popular set in the 2017/2018 Annual Catalog when it first came out. It has a matching punch called Daisy and the punch itself sold the entire 6 month supply in a week (or something like that). It was a crazy time but no worries. Stampin’ Up! has it back in stock. You can save 10% by purchasing both in a Bundle. There is also matching Designer Series Paper called Delightful Daisy.
The sentiment is from a stamp set called Happy Birthday Gorgeous.
If you purchased the Daisy Delight Bundle, the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper and a pack of cardstock you would be eligible to choose a free item from the Sale-a-bration Catalog.
Every knows how Eclipse Cards are the biggest rage right now. I even posted two of them in the last couple of weeks. I decided that a backwards Eclipse Card might be just as nice. Normally, you stamp the entire background of a piece of cardstock and then cut out the letters and layer them back using Dimensionals. This time I cut the letters from Large Letters in a plain piece of Whisper White cardstock and then stamped the letters using the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp set. The colors I used were Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, Lemon Lime Twist and Daffodil Delight. Then I pieced the letters back into the piece of Whisper White cardstock that I originally cut the letters out of using Stampin’ Dimentionals. I love the Eclipse Cards but I love this backwards card too.
The “Happy” sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous. I used the stamp that says Happy Birthday but I covered the “Birthday” with tape, inked the stamp and them removed the tape so only the “Happy” was stamped.
I have to say, August is definitely the best month to have a birthday in. Of course, my birthday is in August but so many of my friends also have birthdays this month. As you know, we have a cottage and I found out that there are birthdays on the 20th, 23rd (mine), 24th and 25th all within 2 or 3 cottages from ours. My New Hampshire daughter has an August birthday too, as well as my brother in law, Bill, my other brother in law, Peter, my father in law and a couple of friends. Needless to say, I needed to make a lot of birthday cards! I also received a lot of birthday cards which I will show you in the next couple of days.
I made this card using the stamp set called Happy Birthday Gorgeous. The balloons in this set match the Balloon Bouquet Punch which makes it so easy to stamp and punch out. I added a few sequins from the Mini Sequin Trim in Silver to add a little sparkle to the card. The colors I used are Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry and Flirty Flamingo.
