Today is my son, Sam’s birthday. Sam has grown into an amazing man (it is hard to say your son is a man!). Rob and I are very proud of him. He is an amazing cardiologist, who is finally going to be done with his schooling on June 30th and get a real job! He is an awesome father to Madelyn and Nolan and he is just a really nice guy. It is hard to believe that he is 34 today. I am not sure how that happened so quickly but it is true.
I made this card using the stamp set called Super Duper. I love this set because the sentiments are all big and as you know, I love big sentiments. I stamped the “YAY!” in Bermuda Bay and then cut it out using the Layering Circle Dies. I cut a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock using the Stitched Shaped Dies. I stamped the balloons in Pacific Point and cut them out by hand. As you know I am not fond of fussing cutting but I think I did pretty well with these balloons. Luckily they aren’t complicated shapes.
The Designer Series Paper is called Bubbles & Fuzz. It is part of the Sale-a-bration Catalog which means you can get it for free with a qualifying order!
Here is a picture of Sam and Madelyn at their first Father-Daughter Dance. I am not so sure about the beard but I guess he is too old to ask him mom about it.
Happy birthday, Sam. I hope you have an awesome day! Your dad and I love you.
This is another card that we made at our monthly stamping club meeting. We used the stamp set called Bubble Over with the matching framelits called Bottles and Bubbles. You can purchase both of these in a Bundle and save 10% on the purchase price.
The card also uses a couple of products that you could earn for free with a qualifying purchase. The Designer Series Paper we used is called Bubbles and Fizz. It matches the Bubble Over Bundle perfectly, You can’t buy this paper. You can only get it for free. Isn’t that just awful?! (Ha!). This paper is full of bright colors. The best part of Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper is that is has two different patterns on each side. All the patterns in this set are gorgeous!
The other product we used on this card is from another item you can get for free. The stamp set is called Amazing You and includes the celebrate sentiment. Again, you can’t buy this set, you can only get it for free with a qualifying order. There is only one month left to Sale-a-bration so better hurry before these free items are unavailable for good!
The 2018 Occasions Catalog has some really cute products in it. One of my favorite stamp sets from this catalog is called Bubble Over. It has a set of matching Framelits called Bottles and Bubbles and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. What makes this set even better is it has matching Designer Series Paper that you can get for FREE with a qualifying order! Yes, the Sale-a-bration Catalog has the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper in it.
To make this card I first cut out two sets of the bottles in Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist using the Bottles and Bubbles Framelits. One of the sets I cut out I left as is and the second set I cut to use for the labels. That way they match perfectly because they are cut from the same die. I did the same for the bottle necks only I cut them out using the Bubbles & Fizz designer Series Paper. I also cut the straws and the accent pieces around the labels out of this paper. The bottle caps were cut out using Silver Foil Sheets.
If you purchase the Bubble Over Bundle, the Silver Foil Sheets and a pack of cardstock or ribbon you can earn the Designer Series Paper for Free! How awesome is that!?!
