Rock star birthday

Sports-oriented card

Last week, I shared a patriotic card made with the Baby's First framelits. That card was actually my second design using the shirts -- this is the first one. My husband is SUPER-athletic, and has started running marathons near his birthday. Since my idea of exercise involves walking to the kitchen to get another glass of wine, I'm floored by the commitment and willpower my husband has. For his birthday, I wanted to celebrate his unique awesomeness.

I trimmed onesie die cuts into shirts, using paper from the Flashback DSP set and then grunged it up a bit with some sponging. The one on the left actually looks like a bike shirt to me, so if you have a biker in your life, this might be good for them, too. You could also make soccer shirts in your kid's team colors, rock band shirts ... you get the idea.

If you do make a shirt card, let me know! I'd love to see how you mix up this design to make it yours.

Three cheers for the USA!

Patriotic card using Stars decorative mask

Today, our family said goodbye to the German exchange student who has been visiting with us for the last two weeks. We'll miss her!!

I put together a little travel bag with granola bars, tylenol, tissues, mints, and this very American card, to wish her well on the trip home.

The design was inspired by one that I made for my husband's birthday -- I'll share that one next week. Recognize the shirt dies? No? That's the onesie die from the Baby's First framelit set, with one snip to square off the bottom. I sponged around the edges to give some texture, and added letters with small dies from my stash. In the background, stars sponged with the Hearts and Stars decorative mask add a little more patriotic flair. I tucked in a little "Friends forever" banner to make this a perfect "See you again one day" message.

Tweet treats for the teens

My kids are GIANT. Way too big for Easter bunny baskets. But ... they're not too old to like a surprise treat.

This year, we were up in the mountains for Easter morning. I needed transportable treats! I found exactly one each of three bags big enough to fit the goodies I'd bought. *sigh. Making do with what I have, check!

These tags, made using the Cheerful Critters set, made the random assortment of treat bags into something special, plus made it easy for our visiting exchange student to take hers home if she wants.

Easter Shaker Card

Easter Shaker card
Today's card is no April's Fools joke.  It is absolutely adorable.  Are you in need of an adorable Easter card?  A fellow demo, Marcia Shields created this adorable shaker card for a shoebox swap.  A shoebox swap is an opportunity for stampers to get together and make cards that other stampers have created.  As a demonstrator, you bring a completed card and all the supplies for other stampers to create your card.  It is a great opportunity to learn new techniques and try a style that you may not normally be drawn to creating.  It's also a lot of fun!
inside message
I love how bright and cheery this card is for Easter!  This card uses the SAB DSP, some In Color sequins, Oval Framelits, and an adorable Easter stamp set.  To create this card, you need to adhere the DSP layer to the Coastal Cabana card stock and put them both through the Big Shot to cut out the oval using the Oval Framelits Dies.

Big balloon birthday

Birthday card that uses Stampin' Up! Celebrate Today

Here's a birthday card that's headed to one of my favorite nephews. He's a bubbly guy, so I wanted a bright and joyful card that matched his big smile. So happy!

My color inspiration came from the in-color accessory kit that came in the mail this week as a Sale-A-Bration reward. It has buttons and yarn that match each of the latest in-colors. Here, I picked out Tangelo Twist and Hello Honey. I wanted some matching DSP, but I didn't have any, so I made my own background paper by stamping the dot pattern from this stamp set in two colors. Festive, right?

Throw in a little more stamping, some die cutting and boom! A cute card that makes me smile as I send it.

Stamp sets

  • Celebrate Today (2015 Occasions catalog)

Butterflies Thinlits Card

Butterflies Thinlits Card
Close up of butterfly card
Need a quick Spring or Easter card?  All you need is some card stock, DSP, a stamp set and the Butterflies Thinlits die.  The Butterflies Thinlits die makes it so easy to create a beautiful card in no time at all using this simple die.  For this card, I made my card base a square card (5 ¼” x 10 ½” - scored at 5 ¼”).  First, I stamped my greeting in either Tangerine Tango or Night of Navy depending on the card you are looking at below.  Then, I cut out the largest butterfly using the Butterflies Thinlits die.  I placed the thinlits die near the top of my card so I had room for my greeting to show.  Tip for making the butterfly easier to pop out of the die: place 4 dryer sheets folded in half between the thinlits dies and the card stock.  This will allow your butterfly to easily come out of the die without having to use your paper piercer.  If you don't have dryer sheets, just poke out the card stock using your Paper Piercing Tool.   Next step, add the Whisper White layer and DSP layer with Stampin' Dimensionals to the card base.  Finally, add the cut out butterfly using glue dots in the middle of it's body and pop up the wings with your fingers.  Done!  Quick, easy and gorgeous in just a few minutes.
