Cards

Balloon Adventures

Hello,

Some of the cards that I make the most are birthdays cards. I love sending out birthday cards to family, friends and coworkers!! When I first saw the Balloon Adventure stamp set and matching Balloon Pop- Up Thinlits, I knew that I had to add it to my collection!!

My project today was a CASE right from the Occasion Catalogue and you can find this sample of page 4. Our concept Artisan's create beautiful samples to showcase products, and different suites and when I saw this sample, I knew that I had to recreate it!!!

The other cool thing about this bundle is that it coordinates with the Balloon Bouquet Punch. I love when our products coordinate with more then one tool...make your stamping experience so much fun!!!

Tips on the Project:

  • My colours are Emerald Envy, Crushed Curry and Whisper White. 
  • My ribbon is the Emerald Envy 1/8 Taffeta Ribbon
  • Stamp Sprinkles in the background in Emerald Envy
  • Stamp Balloon in Crushed Curry ink onto Crushed Curry card stock and punch out with Balloon Bouquet Punch
  • Stamp the string in Crushed Curry ink

Vertical Garden Hello Card

Hello,

Last week my friend Heather came for a visit and we had some fun stamping. I wanted to make some cards to have on hand so we had fun playing with the Vertical Garden stamp set.  Did you know that  this stamp set coordinates with the Vertical Garden Project Kit. I love when you can use product in other ways!

I was working on a few other projects on my desk and decided that I need to use the Glimmer paper! I was looking for some bling on my card.

I want to highlight a few items that you can earn for FREE during Sale a Bration. Sale a Bration is quickly coming to a close and we only have 11 more days to earn FREE products, or earn 2 FREE stamp set when you join my community of stampers!!

Details of my card:

  • I used Sugarplum, Black and Whisper White as my colour combination
  • I decided not to colour the Inside the Line Designer Series Paper, as I love the look that it created uncoloured
  • I used the Sugarplum Glimmer paper for my strip
  • I stamp the Hello in Sugarplum ink
  • Add Rhinestones for a little bling 

Unfortunately, Stampin' Up announced that the Glimmer paper is already sold out along with the Tin of Cards.

High Tide - Reflection Card

Happy Monday!

We are in a for a big snow storm over the next few days, which means there is more time for us to stamp!! Hopefully this is the last of the winter weather..I'm ready for warmer weather and sunshine!! 

My card today is one that we made last week in my technique class! We learned how to do the Reflection technique. I saw this technique on social media and thought...wow that looks hard but actually it's the opposite..it's so simply and easy!!!

No Bones About It- Birthday Card

Hello,

Today, I'm sharing with you one of the projects that we made last month in our Simply Occasions Class. I'm loving the new Incolours and can't get enough of the Emerald Envy. It's reminds me of my Irish background and the beautiful colours in the that county!! Oh, how I hope that Stampin' Up! will have an Incentive Trip there in the near future!! Now trust me, that is one trip the whole family will be going on!!!

My card uses a layout that I saw on my friend Erica's blog. I really liked the layout that she used on her going places card and thought it would be fun to give it a try.

 

DSC_0009 copy

I used the No Bones about it stamp for my project today. My goal when creating cards is to mix old stamp set in with new product. Plus, I thought it would be great to have some masculine cards on hand for my stash!!

To create my dinosaurs, I only used the Emerald Envy ink pad. For the solid image, I inked my stamp in Emerald Envy and stamped off a few times so I would have a softer tone. Then using the xray image, I stamped in Emerald Envy in full strength so it looks stronger on the image. I love how it turned out!!

I used one of my favourite framelits on this project the Swirly Scribbles. These framelits are a MUST in your collection as you can use them on any theme or occasions!!

You can see all the supplies that I used in this project in the clickable links below.

Foxy Friends Birthday Card

Happy Monday!!

I hope you are having a great day!! Thank you so much for all the sweet comments on my Pop of Paradise Level Card and if you are visiting for the first time to my blog, welcome!! I had so much fun and can't wait for next month's blog hop..it's going to be a really cool fancy fold!! The neat thing about participating in a blog hop, it's makes you think outside the box and pushes you out of your creative zone!!

My project today is a quick and simply card that you can mass produce for birthday or thank you cards. You could easily switch out the greeting for any occasions. I saw this simple design on Mary Fish's blog and knew that I had to recreate it. Now I did switch up the greeting as I wanted to make a birthday card!!

DSC_0040 copy

My greeting is from the new Designer Tin of Cards stamp set. I love the fonts in this set and can see it being used for so many different projects!!

Interesting in knowing what I used on this card, you can see all the supplies that I used in this project in the clickable links below.

Happy Birthday Emily!!

Happy Monday!!

It's a special day around here as we celebrate a milestone birthday in our house!! I can't believe that Emily is 18 today!She is a young adult now and we are so proud of her and all her accomlishments!! It just felt like yesterday we were waiting for that big day!!. She was actually 2 weeks early and I still remember holding her for the first time..it was a moment I won't forget!!

I had to make her a special birthday card to celebrate the Occasion!! I used the new Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper as my focus point and drew by colours for the card from there!!

DSC_0020 copy

One must have stamp set and framelits in your collection is the Number of Years stamp set and matching Large Numbers Framelits!! Using these two products, my card came together very quickly!!

My colour combination is

 

As I was telling you I pulled this colour combination right from the designer series paper pack. Did you know that Stampin' Up! listed the colours in the paper on the back, so you know what colours are in the paper pack! It's a handy little resource!!
