Always A Birthday

I finally got to stamp a card!! Things have been quite crazy around here!!! I have not had a chance to stamp or visit any blogs or even keep up with my email!!!

Here is the card that I just made for a friend's birthday! I had to make it so that it would go out with the mail today!!! All products are from Stampin' Up except were noted! I used the Always and It's Your Birthday stamp sets! I used pretty in pink, mellow moss, whisper white, and chocolate chip card stock. I used my mellow moss and pretty in pink markers to color in the flower. I then cut it out and mounted it on to the same heart stamped in chocolate chip with dimensionals. (I love how the heart turned out!) I then layered that onto some mellow moss. I stamped the saying in mellow moss and punched it out with my 1 3/8 circle punch. I mounted that with dimensionals to a mellow moss punched out scallop circle. And then used the dimensionals again to attach that to the background. The background is embossed with the Cuttle Bug Perfect Paisley folder. The ribbon is 5/8 grosgrain in chocolate chip. That is all layered onto a piece of chocolate chip. I also inked up some of the edges with chocolate chip ink. I used the ticket corner punch on all of the corners!

Thanks for looking and have a fantastic day!!!

My Mother-In-Law Made Some Cards!!!

I have not had a lot of time to stamp lately, but my mother-in-law was able to come over the other day and make a few cards!!! She did a fantastic job, so I thought I would share them with you!

She used Stampin' Up! products! Her first card she used two retired sets, Delight in Life and Just for You Series-French Twist. She used groovy guava, chocolate chip, very vanilla, and close to cocoa card stock. She used groovy guava and chocolate chip classic ink. She punched a scallop circle out of the Afternoon Tea designer series paper. She also used the 1 3/8 circle punch. She also used the ticket corner punch. As for the brads, they are fake. She punched out little circles from the 1/8 punch and glued them on! Don't they look great. She also used Cuttle Bug's Perfect Paisley folder.

For her second card, she used pretty in pink, whisper white, and brown textured paper from ? card stock. She used Pretty in pink and chocolate chip ink. She used the scallop circle, 1 3/8 circle and the ticket corner punches. The stamp sets she used are from the same card above. She also used Cuttle Bug's D'Vine Swirl.

She did such a wonderful job!!!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!

A Tweet Thank You!

I made this card a few days ago. It is a card for one of my uplines to thank her. She is a wonderful and very talented woman!

All products are from Stampin' Up! I used the bird stamp from the Fun & Fast Notes set and the thank you from the Much Appreciated set. I used started out with the dp from Flowers for You and went with that to coordinate my colors for the rest of the card. I used Lovely Lilac and Tempting Turquoise cs. I also used whisper white cs too! I make the scalloped edge I used my 3/4 inch circle punch and a piece of the Sticky Strip. I first placed the strip on the back of the lovely lilac cs and then pealed off the red strip to expose the sticky tape. I then placed the circles right next to each other. For the bird and the saying, I stamped them in Stazon black. I used my blender pen along with pixie pink, garden green, and sky blue classic ink pads to color in the bird. I also used my so saffron marker to color in the beak. I thought that I would make the bird pop a bit my using my blender pen and the basic gray ink pad to shade around the bird. To the flower, I attached a pink rhinestone brad from the fire collection. I attached all of this to the tempting turquoise and then popped that layer with some dimensionals.

I enjoyed making this card because I used colors that I do not normally use, but really like! Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
