Birthday Wishes For You

Today is my friend, Laura’s birthday.  Laura is a member of my stamp club.  She is an amazing stamper and makes the most beautiful cards.  She is a clean and simple stamper like I am only she just does it better.  I think I need to talk her into starting a blog so she can share her creations.

I made this birthday card for Laura using the stamp set in the 2018 Occasions Catalog called Birthday Wishes For You.  You already know I love big giant fonts so I knew I would buy this set as soon as I saw it.  You can leave it blank or you could color it in using Stampin’ Write Markers or Stampin’ Blends.  I stamped it once on Whisper White and then again on Lemon Lime Twist.  Then I cut out the banner part and put it on the card using a Mini Dimensional.

The party horn is from the stamp set called Picture Perfect Birthday.  This set is also in the Occasions Catalog.  It is a two-step stamp set where two or more stamps make an image.  I love two-step stamps because you don’t need to color each section.  You can just tap them in an ink pad and put them together.  The party horn I made actually uses four different stamps.

The Designer Series Paper is called Picture Perfect Party and is a 6″ x 6″ paper stack.

Happy Birthday, Laura!  I hope you have an awesome day!

Valentine’s Day

❤️❤️❤️  Happy Valentine’s Day  ❤️❤️❤️  

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.

Daisy Delight

These past couple of weeks have been a little crazy for me.  First, I flew to Savannah, GA to drive my Mom to her place in Florida.  Mom is 92.  Although she still drives (which is a little scary) driving all the way to Florida is a little too long.  Every year Rob and I drive her so it has become kind of a tradition.  We get to see Mom and my sister and brother in law, Emily & Peter (Peter actually reads my blog!)  plus we get a little warmth and sunshine.  It is nice to get out of this cold, snowy weather and see that big yellow ball in the sky which has been hiding from us since October.

After driving Mom, we were home one day and drove to see my son and his wife, Sam and Tara and my grandchildren, Madelyn and Nolan.  You all know that seeing my grandchildren is my favorite thing in the whole world.  Believe me, there will be pictures to follow soon!

I made this card using the stamp set called Daisy Delight.  It is in the 2017/2018 Annual Catalog.  This set has a matching Punch called Daisy and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  The Designer Series Paper is also in the Annual Catalog and is called Color Theory.

Party Pandas Valentines

My granddaughter, Madelyn, is two years old and goes to a pre-school/daycare that is awesome.  It is attached to a nursing home so the children and the elderly adults get together every now and then.  The adults love the interaction with the kids and the kids learn to interact with elderly people.  It is a win-win situation.

Tara, Madelyn’s Mom, asked me to make her some Valentines to share with her classmates.  I decided to use the Sale-a-bration stamp set called Party Pandas.  This is one of the sets you can get for free with a qualifying order and is perfect for a two year old.  I also used the new Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes.  These cards are 2.5″ x 4.5″ which is the perfect size for Valentines.  They are in the 2018 Occasions Catalog.  You get 20 cards and envelopes in the pack for $8.00.

The “Be Mine” sentiment is from the stamp set called Blooming’ Love.  I first stamped it on Pink Pirouette cardstock and then cut them out using the Sweet & Sassy Framelits.  I love that there are two different shaped hearts in this set that are meant to layer with each other.  I put the hearts over the balloon that comes with the Panda stamp using a Dimensional.

A Valentine Stamp Off Challenge

Hello again!  It is time for another Stamp Off Challenge featuring BS & J Productions (Buffy, Susan and Jackie).  Today’s challenge is to make a Valentine’s Day card.

I used the stamp set called Heart Happiness to make my card for this challenge.

Heart Happiness is a perfect set to use to make a Valentine’s Day card.  It actually has a set of Framelits that go with it and that go with another stamp set called Sure Do Love You.  That is one of the great things I love about Stampin’ Up!.  You can mix and match stamp sets, dies and colors because everything goes together so well.

First I colored the larger hearts using my Stamping’ Write Markers in Flirty Flamingo, Marina Mist and Island Indigo.  Then I stamped the little heart and cut all of them out using the dies called Lots To Love Box.

I also used the stamp set called Number Of Years and a set of Framelits called Large Numbers to make the banner for this card.

Now let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made for their Valentine’s Day card.

Party Pandas

Today is my friend, Lynette’s birthday.  I had no doubt about which stamp set I would use to make her a card.  Lynette is fun, spunky, enthusiastic, a little crazy (sorry Lynette) and just great to have around.  She is part of my stamp club and she always makes it fun.  I knew she would love the stamp set called Party Pandas the second I saw it.  Lynette loves the pigs and she loved the chicken set so there was no doubt she would love this one.

The best part about Party Pandas is it is one of the Sale-a-bration stamp sets that you can get for FREE with a qualifying order.  Place an order of $50 or more and you can choose this set in wood mount or clear mount.  It has three cute little pandas and a couple of sentiments to go with them.

The Designer Series Paper I used for her card is called Picture Perfect Party and is in the 2018 Occasions catalog.  One side of this paper has photographs of things like balloons and bows and the other side has fun patterns.  I added the Tutti-fruitti Adhesive Backed Sequins to make it look like the Panda was juggling.  I saw Patty Bennett use the Enamel Dots this way and thought it was cute.

Happy Birthday, Lynette.  I hope you have a really fun day!
