Piece of Cake

From myself to several friends, this past year has been a milestone birthday year.  I did not originally think of that when I began planning today’s card, but when I chose the final DSP to use it hit me.  I am sometimes slow that way.  However it worked out, this card would be perfect for a milestone of any kind.

 

Stampin' Up!, Piece of Cake, Amazing Life, Broadway , Jackie Beers

Piece of Cake Bundle, 150579

 

Do you see what I mean?  The black, silver, and gold would work for most special birthdays.  I love this Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper.  The gold foil is just awesome.  And of course the two different stamp set, bundles, I used were my must haves from the Occasions Catalog.

I mixed these two great sets, Piece of Cake, and Amazing Life, to get just the right look.  The sentiment is from Amazing Life and the cake is from Piece of Cake.  I adore the punch, but I am partial to punches anyway.  This one is so easy to line up with the cake.

I will say I used Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets for the cake stand and that little strip of  gold foil separating the DSP and the stamped images.  Both wold have been a tad difficult to add glue to.  At least for me anyway!  I felt the little strip was the perfect divider and love the finished look that it gives the card.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I really do appreciate it.  I have all of the supplies listed at the bottom of the post, as well as the measurements just below here.  And please don’t forget the Join Promotion!!

Hello Beautiful

I have a super quick and easy card today!  It is the definition of #SimpleStamping.  It can be done quickly, great for multiples, and is wonderful with almost any designer series paper.  Can you guess what the layout is?  I will not keep you in suspense.

 

#simplestamping

Butterfly Gala Bundle, 150599

 

How cute is this?  And with FREE Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper (Botanical Butterfly DSP), you just cannot do better.  I chose the Lemon Lime Twist as the base color because I did this card with my Stamp Club.  Of all of the colors of butterflies, the Lemon Lime Twist was the most prevalent.  Since I used all of the two sheets with this pattern I went with simplest to match.

For the little butterflies, they also came from this same DSP, just a different sheet.  And I LOVE punches for quick and easy.  It was super simple for my ladies to punch the butterflies and add to their cards.

I hope you will give this layout a try.  Any DSP that Stampin’ Up! has would work in this  configuration.  I will suggest that you stamp  the underneath sentiment prior to adhering the paper.  Can you guess why I know that?  LOL!!

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another quick and easy project.   I have the complete list of products (although there are not very many with this cutie) at the bottom of the post.  And please read through the Join Promotion details I have listed below.  I would love to talk with you about joining my team.  I can give you a lot more reasons than I have listed here.

You Make Me Happy

My first card club of the year was yesterday.  It is so nice to get back in the groove and share what I love with friends!  I could not wait to share with them products from the new catalog.   You will be seeing these cards in the next couple of days.

For the first card I used the Meant To Be Bundle.  Oh My!!  Those dies are fabulous.  You really do need the Multi-purpose Adhesive Sheets for some of the hearts.  It makes adhering them super easy.  And the little step of adding the adhesive sheet before cutting is really no big deal.  For me, it is remembering to do it!  LOL!!

This card is not just for Valentine’s Day.  With the sentiment I used it could be for a variety of reasons, or the sentiment could easily be swapped for another.

 

Meant To Be Bundle, 150587

 

I LOVE everything about these lovely dies.  The stitching, the curly lace look, and the solid hearts (although I did not use one of those on this project), are all perfect for a variety of ideas.

I pulled my colors from this gorgeous DSP. It is the All My Love Designer Series Paper.  And for a change I used the main side instead of the reverse side 🙂  I did stamp the sentiment is Lovely Lipstick, which is also in this DSP.  I needed the darker color to show up on the blue.  I just could not bring myself to use Black on this card.

Color Combination:

 

 

This gorgeous ribbon is one of the Sale-A-Bration items.  This means it is FREE!  And you get five rolls of this beautiful ribbon simply by spending 50.00 on products.  Hint:  the Meant to Be Bundle is 53.00, so there you are!  This Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack contains 5 Yards each of Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather, and Lemon Lime Twist !  WOW!!  That is 25 Yards of ribbon at No additional cost to you!!

Thank you for stopping in this morning.  I very much appreciate it.  I have listed the measurements below and the complete supply list is a the bottom of the page.  You can click on any item and be taken directly to my online store.

Keep Calm

I have a Non Card for you today.  I had made an A-Frame Calendar post earlier in the week.  But after I had made it, but before posting, I saw quite a few other examples of it.  So I went back to my drawing board to try to find a different calendar.  I had a similar to this background card I had been playing with on my desk.  The lightbulb came on and I went from there. This idea for the base is not new by any means, but I have not seen one in some time.  So for a quick and easy calendar that can be personalized, in many ways, here you are.

 

Happy Tails, 148682

 

I just adore this Happy Tails stamp set!  And the Keep Calm is just perfect.  I remember a Host stamp set from several years ago that was a keep calm with multiple additions to it.  I want to say that to folks regularly !! LOL!!

This layout, as I said above was for a card, so it could easily be made as a card if you are not into making calendars.  Here is the base before I added the calendar and the small sticky note.

 

Sorry about the glare on the plastic holder.  This measures 4 X 6, which is not far off of an A2 card.  So into much change needed for a card.

There are not many items used here.  I did use the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out the puppy.  And I intentionally cut off the bottom to make more room to show the background.  I knew the calendar and sticky note would cover most of the pretty DSP, so I wanted to try to leave as much as I could uncovered.

The frame is a plastic / acrylic photo frame that has the bent edge.  I got it at Dollar Tree.  The calendar is from Taylored Expressions, and the sticky note is the 1 1/2 X 2 that I found in the drawer. 🙂  I need to be on the lookout for better colors of these.

Thank you so much for visiting.  I hope you will return on Monday.  All of the stamping supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.

You’re So Awesome

I really love this sentiment so I could not wait to ink it up.  I got this card layout inspiration from Pinterest and went with this entire set.    It could be made into a Simple Stamping card or multi-layered very easily. My card is somewhere in between those.

 

Flowering Desert, 148700

 

There is not much to comment about in this one.  I added the flowers to give it more texture and  depth.  And the sentiment needed some background.  So I used Touches of Texture to stamp and stamp off with Sahara Sand beneath the punched out sentiment.  I also did some around the edges for the desert floor.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s blog hop and will come back tomorrow for a Non Card project.  Although the layout could very easily be used as a card.  Now you will be guessing!

People Like You for Pals Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals monthly blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here! January is all about making “Art from the Heart,” featuring projects for Valentines Day, Thinking of You, Get Well, or Sympathy. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Cards that dislike having to make are Sympathy and Get Well cards.  These are usually sad times.  But  I thinkI should send more Get Well cards since making people feel better with our chosen craft is part of the reason we make cards.  So today that is the card that I chose to showcase.  Although the sentiment on the front does not necessarily mean that.  What do you think?

 

Stampin' Up!, Dear Doily, Needle & Thread, Humming Along, Pretty Label, Jackie Beers

Dear Doily Bundle, 150616

 

I believe this sentiment is perfect for a variety of reasons and would definitely make the recipient feel special.  I hate to tell you that I used two bundles and an additional stamp set to make this card.  All of the new products were right at my fingertips so looking for just the perfect touches was so easy.

The doily cut out and flower are from Dear Doily Bundle.  The sentiment with the stitched shape is from the Needle & Thread Bundle ( along with the Pretty Label Punch)  And the inside sentiment for the Get Well is “Hope you feel better really soon” from the Humming Along stamp set.  I do try to stick to two sets at a time for a card, but with all the new just laying there begging to be used, I could not resist.  And I really did want it as a Get Well card.

I also did something else that I rarely do.  That is heat embossing.  It is hard to tell from the photo, but the sentiment is heat embossed with White Embossing powder.  And yes, it still amazes me when the powder begins to shine!!  I just love that .  Something I do try to always do is to stamp on the front of the envelope.  I think it gives the recipient an idea that there is something special inside the envelope!

Thank you so much for hopping along with us today and stopping at my post.  I very much appreciate it.  I have all of the supplies I used today listed at the bottom of the post.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created!
