Just for you

This card was inspired by one that Angie did on ChicNScratch titled Floral Wing card.  I changed up the sentiment but followed her basic layout.  I used the new Watermelon Wonder ink and card stock.  The striped paper is the new envelope paper that Stampin' Up has come out with this year.  I chose it  because it was the only paper with the watermelon color at the time.  The ribbon is the new 1 inch dotted lace and adds a pretty softness to the card.  The beautiful butterfly comes from the Butterfly thinlit set and is cut out from gold foil paper.
The sentiment, Just for You is one of my favorites from the Stampin' Up Watercolor Words stamp set which has become one of my new favorites due to the style of the print.

Your So Sweet

Time to start blogging again with the holidays rapidly approaching!  This note card is made with the Stampin' Up stamp set 'Your So Sweet' and the thinlit set 'Mini Treat Bag' shown on page 57 of the annual catalog.  The stamp set includes the cute star above with the hello written on it and then you cut out the star inside of it with the thinlit from the mini treat bag set!  What a great idea!  I layered a piece of designer series paper under the star to give it some dimension and added the little punched hearts from the itty bitty punch set.  These are so fun to make and I will be making sets of these for Christmas gifts for my co-workers.  This card was made with Mossy Meadows, my favorite green color at this time.  If you have any questions, feel free to comment below or if you would like to purchase any of these sets, click on my store button to the right.  Happy Stampin'!

Long and Skinny

I recently saw a challenge on The Paper Plunge.com looking for Tall and Skinny cards.
How about long and skinny?  This card is 3 1/2 by 8 and fits in a #10 envelope.   I have been making starburst cards for a technique class and thought I would combine them for this challenge.  I have found the starburst design is great for all types of cards.  Once you put the starburst together you just add your sentiment for the occasion and some bling like the butterfly and you are ready to go.  There are several videos online that will get you through the steps to making a starburst card if you would like to learn them.  if you like the butterfly on the card, check out my Stampin' Up store where you can buy the Butterfly Basics stamp set or bundle which includes this lit dies to cut them out on your Big Shot or other die cutting machines.  Thanks for stopping by!

It is that time of the year when congratulations cards are needed.  Stampin' Up has a great stamp set designed just for such occasions.  Titled 'Bravo' this stamp set comes with many different ways to say congratulations!  I chose this one because of the unusual spelling of the word and the fact that it was written vertically and not the usual horizontal.  I used my favorite in color, blackberry bliss ink for the card along with the matching card stock and designer paper.  That is one of the wonderful things about using Stampin' Up products; everything coordinates!

From the Herd

Well I am back and I thought this Stampin Up card made from the stamp set "From the Herd" would be perfect to showcase.  I am losing one of my bosses who is taking on another position and wanted to make him a special card from his team.  I thought this stamp set was perfect!  I stamped it in Versafine black ink and watercolored the "herd".  I used blushing bride for the pig, shades of baked brown sugar for the buffalo and the llama, daffodil delight for the chicken, soft slate for the goat and lost lagoon for the little bird.  The stamp set comes with several cute sayings which include 'from all of us', 'it's pasture birthday', ' party animals' and several more to fit many occasions.   You can find this stamp in our Occasions catalog which runs thru June 2nd.  Click on the right to view the catalog and if you want to order the stamp set or any other Stampin' Up project, click on the button to the right that says Shop my store.  Thanks for stopping by!

Sympathy card

One of my co workers Sandy just asked me what my card site was and I had to admit to her that I hadn't posted anything since Christmas! Now I have to thank her for motivating me to post a card I recently made.

Unfortunately my sister in law lost her mother recently and I wanted to make her a nice sympathy card.
I used Crisp Cantaloupe card stock and ink to make it.  The flower bunch comes from a retired stamp set but you could use any pretty flower arrangement for this type of card.The sentiment is from our petite pairs stamp set that has sentiments for many occasions.
I finished it up with a piece of our 5/8 Organza ribbon which is my go to ribbon for cards.

I hope this card inspires you like Sandy helped inspire me!  To check out my online store just click on the button to the right.  Happy Stampin!
