 This cards is a mixture of two of my favorite flower stamp sets, the new Flower Shop and the Mixed Bunch set.  These two are my favorites as they both have a matching punch that you can purchase to punch out the flowers!  No fussy cutting as I hear other demonstrators mention when they talk about hand cutting out stamp designs.  I used the Mixed Bunch for the background design and then the Flower Shop for the flowers on top.  I used Stampin' Ups dimensionals to give the top flowers some height.

The cute saying comes from the Chalk Talk stamp set.  It is one of many wonderful sayings in the set.  One of the others in this set include the Happy Big Day stamp which can be used for many occasions!  I love this one for the gift card sets I have been making for my family and friends.

I used one of my fav colors, Calypso Coral on this card.  It reminds me a lot of my house I used to    have in Key Largo, FL which was coral in color with teal trim!  Hey, it was the Florida Keys!  No
drab browns here!!!!!

Today I wanted to make a masculine card so I had out my " Need for Speed" stamp set with the sports car, boat, airplane  and ATV.  I recently won in  a contest the new stamp set "Yippee-Skippee" and wanted to use one of the sayings from it.  The one I choose just jumped out at me.  I had to agree that you can never have too much happy!  I thought this was a good saying for a lot of things including birthdays, promotions, or whatever could make you happy.

I added the sports car at the bottom but you could put anything there.  I used the die cut tag from the "Chalk Talk" bundle to attach the saying to the ribbon like it was a gift tag.

I hope this card inspires you to create something yourself.  Happy Stamping!

Everyone is talking about all the wonderful new products Stampin' Up has in its new catalog.  Last week I introduced you to the Chalk Talk Bundle with the Happy Big Day stamp.  
This is another stamp from the same set.
 'Just a little something for a very special someone' is in the shape of a tag.  If you buy the bundle, you get the die cut that matches it to make cutting it out a breeze!  I added a little ribbon and a button to make a hanger.  Along the bottom I added another piece of ribbon and then added some new "Candy Dots".  Candy dots come in all the same colors as our ink pads and can be added directly to the cards as I did on this one or you can put them on brads!  I used one of our colorful designer papers for the background layer.
It is so easy to make cards when you use your creativity and Stampin' Up's products!

Happy Big Day!

Well you can see I am still playing with my Flower Shop stamp set!  Love those pansies and the matching punch!  But I also got out the new Chalk Talk bundle from the new catalog to add to it.   The Chalk Talk Bundle includes the stamp set and the die cut set to cut out the cute stamps!  I used the stamp 'Happy Big Day' from the set and cut it out with the matching die cut.  I then layered it on one of the other die cuts that came with the set.  I added a few brads for a little bling.  I chose some matching designer paper for the background and then punch out a few more pansies in coordinating colors.

This is one of the many wonderful things about Stampin' Up's products; they coordinate together!  Ink pads, designer paper, ribbon and other accessories can be purchased in the same colors to help you coordinate it all.  That is why it is so simple to come up with such cute cards.  Hey, if I can do it,
so can you!

Take a browse through our new catalog and check out all the products.  There are kits that come with everything you need to make some cards and all you have to do is put the pieces together.  They are really simple and we LOVE simple!
