Flower Power

Nothing like bright colors and flowers to say "SPRING".  I used another designer paper from the Sycamore Street paper pack and did the background with Island Indigo paper embossed with the Fancy Fan Folder.  It really adds dimension to the background of the card.

I used the Triple Treat Flower stamp and punched them out with the Fancy Flower Punch. This is one of the many stamps and punches that coordinate together.  I love being able to stamp a design and having a punch to cut it out!  I added some dimensionals and put a large brad in the middle for the centers of the flowers.

You can add any sentiment to the bottom but I think "To My Friend" says it all.

I used a sketch fromThe Paper Player.

To my friend

I just can't seem to stay away from the bright colorful patterns of the Sale-A-Bration Sycamore Street Designer Paper.  This is one of the free packs you can get with a $50 purchase until March 22nd.  Not only can you get the cute paper for free but there is also a matching button and ribbon set that you can also get free with a $50 purchase.

The "to my friend" stamp is from the Friendly Phrases stamp set that has six phrases that include "WOW you're the best", "happy day to you", "here's to you", "you are simply wonderful" and "congratulations on your new baby".

Owl card

Sometimes it takes a little incentive to get me stamping like an upcoming baby shower!  My niece Libby is due this June and she just loves Owls!  This motivated me to get out my Owl punch and do my first owl card.  

I found this card online in a window version and I decided to keep it "simple" and skipped the window part.  What caught my eye was the cute leaves on top of the card.  This is made with a scallop punch and highlighted with some extra color.
It amazes me on how creative some people are with punches.  Although it is a little time consuming putting together the owls, you can "dress" them up for any celebration!

 Check out my website for the Owl punch and many other creative punches that Stampin' Up has.  They make being creative, really SIMPLE!  Just click on the button on the right side and start shopping.

Until next time, thanks for stopping by!

faux pinwheel

Hey stampers!  Today I have a cute card that I saw another Stampin' Up demonstrator do.  Credit goes to Dawn Olchefske who showed me how to make this adorable card.  I used the cute Specialty Sweet Shop designer paper that is now on sale in our Clearance rack and made 1 1/4" squares.   Rotating the squares around with a coordinating color gives the illusion of a pinwheel. The brad in the middle is also in the clearance rack and is called Jelly Bean Sweet Shop brads.  This design can be used for any occasion card from birthday to thank you. 

I also choose to embossed the coordinating squares and do a little embossing on the bottom.   You can use any designer paper and coordinate it with matching colors.  The combinations are endless!

Remember, there is still a few days left of our Sale-A-Bration going on.  With every $50 purchase you get to choose a free gift.  Just click on the link to the right and you will be directed to my website.

I hope you enjoyed this card and if you have any questions, feel free to leave me a comment. Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Patio Party

Spring is right around the corner so I thought I would pull out some designer paper and make something colorful.  I decided on the Patio Party paper and got out my Apothecary Accents framelits.  I used the "You're Amazing Happy Birthday" stamp.  This is one of several stamps that are now being offered for purchase individually by Stampin' Up.  

 I used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack to add the cute little piercings around the framelits.  If you would like more information on these products or to shop my online store, click the "Order Stampin' Up Online" button on the right.

Studio 1 Stampers

What could be more fun than spending an evening with a group of wonderful people who LOVE to stamp!!  That is exactly what I did Thursday night with the Studio 1 Stampers.  Check out the wonderful card above.  This was one of several cards we made with the free products you can get during the Stampin Up's Sale-A-Bration going on right now.

I was amazed at how simple and fast a few of the cards were to make!  All it takes is a few cards that are simple and fun to make, then just change out the verse on it and you are set for any occasion!  Change the colors and you have another card.  What could be easier?
