Happy Spring! Blogger fans, I know I have been terrible about not posting anything lately, but I have been busy creating and have plenty to share. I have been busy working on a scrapbook album for my folks (their anniversary is coming up). I do have a bunch of cards to post, so I will try to post one every day (or at least two-three a week). This simple, elegant Easter card was made using the gorgeous single stamp "Blessed Easter" (#133212 wood). I love the tulips! The tulips could also be used to make a sympathy, get well, birthday, thinking of you card...simply change the sentiment! Happy Easter everyone! Enjoy!
Here's another card made with products from the new Occasions catalog. I used the stamp set Simply Celebrate, the new Fresh Prints DSP paper stack (love it!) and the new punch Petite Petals. What's wonderful about this new flower punch is that our itty bitty flower punch fits perfectly inside!!! I added a little big of bling inside the flower for a finishing touch. Another favorite new product I used to make my card was the new banner framelits. Thanks for looking!
Finally! I am taking some time to post cards I have made recently. Did I mention how much I love the new Occasions catalog from Stampin' Up! It's called "Celebrate the Everyday" and it is just that! A catalog full of products to use to make simple, everyday cards a person uses all the time. Like this one...I used the new stamp set "Another Great Year". It includes several nice stamps, but this one really caught my eye. It is so easy to stamp this image and make a really quick birthday card. I used the new Petite Petals stamp set with the coordinating new Petite Petals punch for easy, gorgeous flowers to accent my birthday image. I also used the new DSP Retro Fresh. All products are from the new Occasions catalog. Click on the image on my blog to see the whole catalog. Enjoy!
Guess what I did last night? I watched "The Voice" with my daughter (while my hubby was out in the field) and made 20 cards! Yep, I made 20 fabulous homemade cards! It was so easy with the new Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit from Stampin' Up. Everything you need comes in one box. You get a seven-piece Occasions Stamp set and clear block, cardstock and envelopes for 20 cards, twine, buttons and clips, full-color brochure w/tips and tricks, die cut paper embellishments, stampin' dimensionsals, Stampin' spots (mini ink pads) and a cool, storable gift box! I just grabbed the box and went with it...I couldn't believe I could make 20 cards in one evening and I figured they cost me less than $1.50 per card! And I still have pieces left over, plus a wonderful stamp set to use over and over again! And ink too! Did I mention how much I LOVE this new product from SU? What's great about it is that is is good for beginners but also a nice way to sit down and stress-relieve for an evening and not have to think. It's all there ready for you! The cardstock and embellishments are all pre-cut and heavy good cardstock to use. The brochure is nice to keep for future layout ideas for cards too! It is item number 134797 and sells for $29.95. Don't miss out on this one!!!!
I love the colors of fall. I recently made a few cards and I simply love how the new stamp sets I have purchased recently worked. I used Magnificent Maple, Tape It (one of my favorites), Gorgeous Grunge and Four You. I used Tangerine Tango, Soft Suede, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze. Pretty simple card. Enjoy!
I made this fabulous card for my sister's birthday. I used the wonderful in colors and the new stamp set Flower Shop with the coordinating punch. This set and punch are sold as a bundle or can be purchased individually in the new catalog. And if you noticed the background is something new...a sneak peak from the new upcoming Holiday catalog. It's called Pretty Print Textured Impressions embossing folder and it's gorgeous. The picture really does not do it justice. Enjoy!
