This week end has been wonderful!  The sun has been out and maybe Spring is really here! This inspired me to bring out my 'Feel Goods' stamp set which includes the above stamp.  I thought it made a wonderful match for this designer paper and the Summer Starfruit  'In Color' Inks.  I wanted to keep it simple so the added ribbon and bow finished off the card nicely.

The 'Feel Goods' stamp set is from our Spring Catalog and has a total of  five stamps with wonderful sayings such as the one above.  Check them out on my website by clicking on the 'Shop Online Now' button the the right.   Check out the whole line of Stampin' Up products and consider joining our group of demonstrators.  Just the discount on your purchases makes it worth it and you can stop at any time!

I just love the Heard from the Heart stamp set which includes the above stamp!  When I started this card I didn't have a plan to what it would look like and I just kept going.

 I really like the print poetry pack which comes with 48 two sided prints.  They are approx 5x7 and are easy to cut down for a card front.  I have to say that I am really liking the Summer Starfruit color which is one of Stampin' Up's In Colors.  The green paper is also from the print poetry pack!  
I added in a little ribbon to bring out the Raspberry Ripple in the designer paper.  

Whenever I use this stamp set with the flowing lines I have to add some brads at the ends.
I hoped you enjoyed the card as much as I enjoyed making it!

Happy day to you!

I thought this stamp was so cute that I added a sentiment and made another card with it!  This card definitely lives up to 'simply'.  I used some of the designer paper from Sycamore Street in my favorite Calypso Coral to layer the card.  I then added the sentiment "happy day to you" below the girl and used the Framelits Oval Collection to cut them out with my Big Shot.    I added a pretty ribbon and bow and viola, a simply beautiful card!

Stampin' Up really takes the difficulty out of making cards.  Take a moment to check out our catalog.  Once you try out a couple of our stamps and punches, you will realize how simple it really can be to make the most beautiful cards.

Hey everyone!  Sorry that I haven't posted recently but I am back and feeling Spring in the air!  With Easter a few weeks away, I thought I would pull out one of my Easter stamp sets from Stampin' Up.  This one is called Easter Blossoms and it has six different stamps, one being the above girl with a Easter Basket.

I wanted the card to be bright and colorful so I used my Old Olive, Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight Polka Dot Designer paper along with the Old Olive coordinating ink to get this card to "pop".  I wanted to add some bling to the card so I added a couple of pearls to the butterfly and added a little pink button to the bouquet the little girl is holding.  To add some more color, I colored in the Easter Eggs in her basket with my marker set.

I made the frames from the Stampin' Up Framelits Label Collection.  These dies make layering so easy and simple.  And who doesn't like simple when it comes to making something?

All these items can be purchased at my Stampin' Up website.  Just click the "Order Stampin Up Online" button to the right and check out all the great products we have for making cards simply.  Remember our Sale-A-Bration is ending March 22, so until then with every $50 purchase you get to choose a few gift.  Check out the free items you get to choose from by clicking on the "Free Products" button to the right.

Busy, busy...

Sorry to keep everyone waiting for another post.  I hope to have something up by the end of the week.  Either another challenge or just another card.  Work has been keeping me busy so I will force myself to take a break and be "creative" !  Thanks for stopping by!

Today I entered the Try Stampin on Tuesday challenge.  Here's their sketch.

Here's my Blooming Birthday card that I made from the sketch.

I used the colorful Sycamore Street paper along with the Blooming with Kindness and Beautiful Birthday stamps from Stampin' Up.  I added a little butterfly to the flower using our butterfly punch.  A piece of our ribbon added a nice break in the solid color.
