Today’s card is a little variation of a simple card I have done several times.  For this one I added some more layers to better match the beautiful designer series paper.


Birthday Cheer, 148604


Do you recognize the folded back corner from previous cards?  It is a super easy, but cute card to make.  Because of the blues and tan in the DSP, I decided to do more layers.  It is not exactly as I envisioned, but I am happy with the results.

I used the Butterfly Duet Punch to punch the cupcake butterfly from another piece of this gorgeous DSP.  Unfortunately it sold out almost immediately, but the wonderful news is that it is going to carry over to the Annual Catalog.  So it will be back available in June.  WooHoo!!!  I adore punches.

Thank you for visiting today.  I have been slacking lately on my posts but will be back to normal this week.  Sometimes life just gets a bit hectic!  I have included all of the products at the bottom of the post.

Remember that Sale-A-Bration is winding down.  It ends on March 31.  And the join promotion where you can get the Fabulous Carry Tote Bag will end then as well.  I truly do love that tote.  If you have been considering joining Stampin’ Up!, I would love to talk with you about it.  It was one of the best decisions I ever made.


For the Ultimate Shopping Experience is to purchase the Starter Kit. Please read through the next items and think about it.  If you love paper crafting as much as I do, I believe you will want to talk with me.  I hope you will consider it.

  • You create your own kit.  You get to choose ANY Stampin’ Up! products (includes bundles)  However, SAB and Host stamps are excluded from the Starter Kit (but not your next order)!
  • You will receive a 20% discount on all future purchases through July 31, 2019.  But there is no obligation to ever order anything else.
  • It’s a great way to Get Your Feet Wet, so to speak.  Just see if you like being a demonstrator.
  • Hobby Demonstrators are welcome.  I was one for about ten years, and really still am!
  • You will be the first ones to see the new catalog when it debuts in June, plus preorder from it.

Now for the 2 options and the Bonuses:

  • The first option costs $99.00 and you get the usual $125.00 worth of products (of your choice) PLUS an additional $50.00 of product for a total of $175.00 at a cost of only $99.00 to you.  And did I mention FREE shipping on that order?  That is another 10% off.


  • The second option costs $129.00.  You get the same amount of products as the first choice, ($125.00 worth of your choice of products, Plus the additional $50.00 of Free Products, FREE Shipping) and the AWESOME new Craft & Carry Tote which is valued at $50.00.  Basically you are paying an added $30.00 for the Craft & Carry Tote.  

(I had the option to purchase, and of course I did.  It is well worth the $50.00 and is a Fabulous deal for $30.00)

Here is the Tote.  It is a great size, has dividers that can be moved for whatever products you are carrying each use.  There are two outside pockets that are large enough to hold punches, and much more.  There is a zipper outside pocket.  It has regular straps as well as a shoulder strap. It has the Stampin’ Up! logo.  It is made of a great heavy weight canvas.  And it is so Pretty!!
