Super Duper Birthday!

The set I am using today is called Super Duper!  Don’t you just love that name?  And I hate to admit it, but it was not even on my radar until I was headed to Savannah OnStage.  My up, upline Pam Morris had used it for her swap card.  It was just so darn cute.  So naturally I had to give it a second look in the Occasions Catalog.  I’m sure you can guess what that answer was…..Yes, it came to my house with my next order!  So here it is:


Super Duper, 142874, $19.00

This card does not have any Bling, it is just a simple, cute, birthday card that would work for anyone.  I made it for a guy who doesn’t really care for Bling.  And that is OK.

But if you are looking for a cute and quick card , then this is for you.

  • The base of the card is Mint Macaron – 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 folded in half
  • The basic black layer is – 5 1/4 X 4
  • The whisper white layer is – 5 1/8 X 3 7/8

And that is it.  So very simple!!  If you like the Mint Macaron, and oh boy do I !, then click down on the retiring list because it is going away at the end of May (or before if supply runs out).  The Super Duper set is in the Occasions Catalog but thankfully was chosen to carry over into the next Annual Catalog .

And speaking of the Annual Catalog, If you do not have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator , and would like to have one of our catalogs, please use the Contact Me button at the top of the post.  I will be happy to send you one when they are available.

Have a Super Duper Day !


Build A Birthday

Today’s card is from the retiring list and is such a sweet stamp set.  It is the Birthday Wishes set.  It is a cake builder, candle builder bunch of fun stamps.  The set is very versatile and just FUN!!  Here is the card:

Birthday Wishes, Stampin' Up!, Jackie Beers, Independent Demonstrator

Birthday Wishes, 138646, $21.00

This is just a HAPPY , Happy Birthday card!  Or for me, it is a SMILE card.  Who would not smile when they opened the envelope to reveal this card?

The stamp set is photopolymer, so it is very easy to just “eyeball” the layers to line then up.  I know some of you are Red Rubber Fans.  And I have to admit that I was leary of the photopolymer initially.  But it is times like this that have helped to convert me.  Also I love being able to see through the stamp for ease of placement of my sentiments.

Almost all of the items on today’s card are on the Retiring List.  Please don’t forget to check it if there is something you have been waiting on.  They will not last very long.  You can click the link below to get to the list.
