All Dressed Up Mother's Day Cards

I am so excited to showcase these new Mother's Day cards I made.  They are called pop up cards and are so much fun to make.  And they were very easy to make too!  I used Stampin' Up's new Card Base Pop n Cuts which makes a standard size card with a fancy edge and two little slits in the bottom to tuck the edges in.  To make the fancy pop up in the center of the card, I simply added the Dress Form Pop n Cuts insert into the Card Base Pop n's all it is super simple to use!  I ran it through my Big Shot (required to make this card) and like magic, all the cutting and scoring in done for me.  I used the new Dress Up Frameslits Die to decorate the outside the of the card.  Super easy and super fun!!!   Enjoy!  (All products can be found in the Stampin' Up Spring Mini Catalog.)  Oh, I also used the Wonderful Mother stamp set for the sentiments.  Inside:  "I love you not only for who you are but for helping me become the person I am."  (Love it!)

Best of Flowers--Thinking of You

Like I mentioned earlier, Stampin' Up is coming out with a "Best of  ?" stamp set every month this year during 2013.  Best of Birthdays, Love, Flowers and Butterflies so far.  The images on these cards are from the Best of Flowers stamp set.  (There is another beautiful silhouette image on this set too.)  These sets are inexpensive and feature beautiful images which can be used over and over again to create beautiful cards and scrapbook pages.  And the best part....for every 6 sets you purchase, you get a stamp set (of your choice) for free!  The sets retail at $14.95 US.  Enjoy!

Storybook Friends

Here are some recent baby cards I made from the new stamp set Storybook Friends.  These cards were inspired by fellow SU demonstrator Catherine Stockly (not sure if I spelled it correctly).  This set is so much fun.  It can be used many different ways...not just for baby cards.  Enjoy!

Henry Says, "It's Your Birthday!"

Here is a fun, simple card I made for my niece's birthday.  I used 3 colors I LOVE:  Calypso Coral, Island Indigo, and Pool Party...all of which SU decided to KEEP!! YEAH!!! I am so happy!  Oh, the stamp set is made with the fun Henry Says stamp set, available now in the Spring Catalog.  Enjoy!!!!
