Washi Tape birthday


I case'd this from Pinterest or google, and now I can't find who made it originally. 

The trick that I figured out is to lay that first wide animal print washi tape down.  Then stamp "happy birthday" above it, so you get it straight.  Then add your other pieces of washi tape, leaving some room in between each row. 

So easy!

Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create this:

Stamps: Endless Birthday Wishes
Ink:  Tuxedo Black
Paper:  Whisper White THICK (for the base - it really is super thick!), Whisper White, Basic Black
Other:  1 3/8" and 1 3/4" circle punches, Everyday Chic washi tape, Stampin' Dimensionals

Sheltering Tree with oranges?

Or just some orange leaves...I don't know.  I liked it, so I went with it!

The ribbon is the White Jute ribbon.  It's really wide, so I cut a strip into 1/3s.  Tie it in a knot, and then pull the strings apart.  Attach to card front with a glue dot or two.

Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create this:

Stamps:  Sheltering Tree, Sassy Salutations
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie
Paper:  Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Other:  Curvy Trio punch, White 1 1/4" Jute ribbon, Stampin Dimensionals, Glue Dots

The Berry Basket made these easy to put together.

Hope you all enjoyed your Easter!

Happy birthday Cupcake!

I found that quite a few greetings from other stamps fit inside this "banner" piece.  Banner comes from Number of Years stamp set.  Very versatile!

Flowering Fields - Gold and Honey

I know this picture doesn't do the card justice, but those flower bits are colored with the Gold Wink of Stella marker.  It really shimmers and shines, but looks more like Dijon when you hold it a certain way.

I just colored bits of each flower/vine here and there, just to give it a pop of gold.

Stamps:  Flower Fields (SAB item), hello sunshine (from Feb 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit)

Be My Valentine

Simple and Sparkly Valentine!  You could swap out the Silver Glimmer paper for the Blushing Bride, and then change the Smoky Slate to Blushing Bride if you wanted.  That would be very pretty together!

Hearts are popped up with dimensionals.  Here's a tip when you're punching the hearts - or anything in a weird shape.  Sometimes you might need to flip the paper over every time you punch, so that you can get the punches closer together and end up with LESS waste.  Here's a picture to show you what I mean -

 You're left with bits that you could still punch out tiny stars or circles (noses), or whatever small punch you have.

Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create this:

Stamps:  Watercolor Wishes Card Kit stamps
Ink:  Real Red, Smoky Slate
Paper:  Real Red, Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Red/Silver/Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer papers

A Nice Cuppa - Valentine's and Clovers

As you can see, I found some time to get into my craft room today.  I think we ended up with about 24" of snow here, so I haven't left the house today.  :)

Had fun doing something non-tea related with this new set.  Valentine's and St. Patrick's Day!  I will admit, some of my "shamrocks" look wonky...but you know where I was going with this.

Both cards are 4 1/4" square, with the stamped layer raised up with dimensionals.  Each card has only one color of ink.  Stamp off once to get the lighter images.

Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create these:

Stamps:  A Nice Cuppa, Good Greetings (retired, but still a GREAT greeting set)
Ink:  Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Whisper White
Other:  Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Stampin' Dimensionals

Bloomin' Heart Valentine

This is actually a card.  I used the retired Hearts Framelits.  Cut (2) of the largest size (scalloped).  Attach with sticky strip at the very top, and fold so you can open it.

"xoxo" and the banner is from the Circle Card Thinlits.  I also used the Precision Base Plate, and it really works nicely with the detailed Bloomin' Heart thinlits.

 Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create this:

Stamps:  NONE!
Ink:  NONE!
Paper:  Real Red, Winter Wonderland Specialty dsp (retired, but just use any pattern you have), Red Foil Sheets, Gold Glimmer paper

Kinda Eclectic and butterflies

Black Friday projects!  After I was finished with Christmas cards, I moved on to something NOT Christmas.  All of these cards use the Kinda Eclectic set, the same butterfly punches, and some use the Happiest of Birthdays stamps. 

As such, I'll just list colors.  The above two cards used Delightful Dijon, Eggplant Envy, and Night of Navy.

This one features Early Espresso, Hello Honey, Cajun Craze, and Mossy Meadow.

Snowy Sleigh Ride!


Hard to see the white-on-white of this card, but it really is pretty and sparkly in real life!

After I die-cut the sleigh and trees pieces, I gave it an edge of "snow" with the 2-way glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds glitter.

When I assembled this card, I stuck down the "Making Spirits Bright" circle first - so it's sort of like a moon.  Bonus points to Jamie G for getting that!

Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create this:

Stamps:  Among the Branches
Ink:  Night of Navy
Paper:  Night of Navy, Whisper White, Season of Cheer designer series paper
Other:  Big Shot, Sleigh Ride Thinlits, 2" circle punch, 2-way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds glitter

Happy Christmas medallion

I think this may be one of my favorite cards.  Very simple, and I love the designer papers together.  

Stamp your greeting first on Very Vanilla and then punch out with 2 1/2" circle punch.  Layer onto a large Gold metallic foil doily.  The banner pieces are just attached with mono-adhesive.  The medallion is popped up with dimensionals.

Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create this:

Stamps:  Oh, What Fun
Ink:  Mossy Meadow
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Home for Christmas designer series papers (both prints came from this one pack)
Other:  Metallic Foil doilies, 2 1/2" circle punch, Banner Triple punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

Happy Stamping,

Happy Trees


I went with simple Vanilla on Vanilla layers for this card.  I inked up the trees stamp using the Garden Green and Marina Mist markers so that only the trees were green, and the snowline was blue.

Stamp FIRST, then run your pieces through the Big Shot with the Softly Falling embossing folder.

After you've assembled it, use a little Dazzling Details (glitter glue) to run along the snow lines. Let it dry - that stuff takes a little while to completely dry, depending on how heavy-handed you are with it.

Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create this:

Stamps:  Happy Scenes
Ink:  Marina Mist
Paper:  Very Vanilla
Other:  Big Shot, Softly Falling embossing folder, Garden Green and Marina Mist markers, Dazzling Details, Banner Triple punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Tombow Multi-purpose liquid glue.

Happy Stamping,

Delicate Ornaments holiday card


Another simple one, but stunning with the Silver and Red Foil papers!  So shiny and the details in these thinlits are beautiful.

After I die-cut the ornaments, I attached them to the card front with a little bit of strategically placed Tombow Multi-purpose liquid glue - that stuff is amazing!

Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create this:

Stamps:  Endless Wishes (retired...sorry!)
Ink:  Real Red
Paper:  Real Red, Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Red and Silver Foil papers
Other:  Big Shot, Delicate Ornament Thinlits, Silver cord

Happy Stamping,

Snowflake holiday card


Made this card with the last of my snowflake printed paper from the Season of Cheer designer series paper pack.  Just added some banners using the Banner Triple punch, and stamped some snowflakes.  The greeting that I used came from the November Paper Pumpkin kit - I LOVE the holiday cards in that kit, and the stamps are great!  I'll be using those more next year.

Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create this:

Stamps:  Endless Wishes (snowflakes - I think this one might be retired), Mistletoe & Holly Paper Pumpkin Kit (November 2015 kit)
Ink:  Night of Navy
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Night of Navy, Season of Cheer designer series papers
Other: Banner Triple punch, Rhinestone Basic Jewels
