Happy Birthday Gorgeous Geraniums

Everywhere I look people have these beautiful Geraniums in their yards.  They hang from porches and are planted in big pots all over the place.  I love Geraniums but unfortunately I am a plant killer.  Either I over water them or forget to water them at all so they just shrivel up and die.  It is sad and pathetic.

Stampin’ Up! doesn’t have a Geranium stamp so I thought I would make my own.  I used a couple of flowers from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set that is in the Annual Catalog.  It is a two set stamp set which means you use two stamps to make one image.  I used Berry Burst and Powder Pink to make the flowers.  Then I used an Aqua Painter to soften them.

The border is a new punch in the catalog.  It is called Decorative Ribbon Border.

Here is a picture of Emory Jade on her first 4th of July.  She has these beautiful big brown eyes.  She is also growing up way too fast!

Happy Birthday

I know this card is not very patriotic because I didn’t use red, white and blue but it is still a birthday card so I decided to post it today.  Although things are kind of crazy in this world today, I still love this country and I am proud to be an American.

I made this card using a new die called Happy Birthday (such a surprise!).  I love this die  It is very large, as you can see, and it uses a fun font.  This die goes with a stamp set called Happy Birthday Gorgeous and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.

To make this card, I cut out the die using Pool Party and Bermuda Bay Cardstock.  I kept the pool party negative section and pieced the Bermuda Bay words onto it.  Then I had to glue all the little itty bitty teeny tiny pieces of Pool Party back onto it.  It was kind of like doing a jigsaw puzzle.

Happy Birthday, America.  You are still an amazing place and I wouldn’t live anywhere else.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous

This is a fun card I made using a stamp set from the Stampin’ Up! 2017/2018 Annual Catalog.  The set is called Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  The Happy Birthday Thinlits die goes with this set and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.

You already know the die is one of my favorites but it was also a favorite at my monthly stamp club meeting.  Most of the ladies bought this one.  I love the size of it and the stamp set is a lot of fun.  It is a two step stamp set which means you use two different stamps to make an image.  In this case, each of the flowers has an outline stamp and then an inside stamp.  It is super easy to line up because it is Photopolymer which means you can see through it for exact placement.

Speaking of gorgeous, guess who came to visit us last weekend!  Sam and Tara had a wedding to go to in this area so Rob and I got to watch Madelyn for them.  Every time I see her, she seems to be so much bigger and her vocabulary is amazing.  I could even understand most everything she said so Mom and Dad didn’t have to be interpreters.  Plus she gets prettier every time I see her (yes, I am a little biased!)!

Happy Birthday

Stampin’ Up! has a new die in the 2017/2018 Annual Catalog that I just love.  It  is called Happy Birthday Thinlits Die.  It is a big die (3.5″ x 3″) and we all know how much I love big dies!  It has a matching stamp set called Happy Birthday Gorgeous.  You can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.

This is one of the cards we made last night at our monthly stamp club meeting.  The balloon is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and it coordinates with Ballon Bouquet Punch.  This set also coordinates with the Classic Label Punch (although I didn’t use it for this card).  The Designer Series Paper is called Pick A Pattern.

Last week we went on vacation with Madelyn and her family.  My 92 year old mother lives nearby so she got to visit with all of us too.  We all went out for lunch one day.  Madelyn loved her Great Grandma!
