Cheers To You

I have some awesome new products to show you at the bottom of the post. So don’t close out too soon!  But let’s get to the card of the day first.

The layout I have used for today’s card is one that would work for pretty much any card.  And I adore it!  It is also great for the scraps we all cannot stand to through away.  The layers can be adjusted actually so that they would fit the scrap pieces you have.  Isn’t that a great idea?

 

Itty Bitty Birthdays, 148618

I planned this card as a Birthday card, but in adding the categories that it wold fit, I realized this sentiment is an awesome one.  It would be great for a Graduation, which is coming up real soon, or a retirement.  And probably a few others.

The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set.  I love all of the “Itty Bitty” type sets.  They are the perfect size and usually cover almost any occasion, even the more unusual ones.  Or at least ones that you do not use very often.

I have not used a lot of Grapefruit Grove card stock, so decided to remedy that today.  It is one of the colors in the pack of this gorgeous DSP.  It is the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper.  I also used Night of Navy as the DSP backing , and Pineapple Punch for the sentiment backing.

Thank you so much for stopping in today.  I hope you enjoyed today’s card and will return tomorrow to see another new project.

Amazing Birthday

The Humming Along stamp set is perfect for a sketch type card, where you leave just the outline.  Or you can go crazy coloring it.  I, of course, went with the coloring.  I seriously love coloring with the Stampin’ Blends.  With a large stamped image, the coloring goes very quickly.  Here is today’s card.

 

Humming Along, 148758

 

I paired the Humming Along stamp set with the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper.  The purple flowers are a back side of one of the butterfly prints.  And the little butterfly on the flower is punched from a sheet as well.  **Remember the Butterfly Duet Punch will be in the next Annual Catalog!  So now would be the time to get the FREE DSP that will match it.

The gorgeous sentiment is part of the stamp set and is layered using the Layering Ovals Dies.  These type dies are a staple of my stamping products.

Remember that Sale-A-Bration is winding down!  The pumpkin will pop at 11:59pm on the 31st.  So only a few days left to order and get FREE product.  Also the Craft & Carry Tote promotion for joining Stampin’ Up! as a Demonstrator will go away at that time as well.  If you have any hesitancy about joining, please contact me.  I will give you my reasons for joining and remaining a Stampin’ UP!

A Special Birthday

I am sharing a special birthday card I made for a wonderful friend the other day.  It was her 60th birthday. I had seen a similar card recently and thought it would be a great time to try it.  I will definitely be using this fold again soon.

 

Share What You Love DSP, 146926

 

I will say that after I took this photo I decided it needed a little more of something!  You know what I mean??  So I added a little white bow to the left of the 6.  That was just enough.

The numbers are retired, and I really hate that!  They are the Large Number Dies and are much needed to make so many specific projects.

And here is the opening.

 

 

The card is all DSP measuring 5 1/2 X 8 1/2.  Fold and burnish at 4 1/4, then cut  1″ off the front right edge.  For the closure flap (what the 60 is on), I cut two of the ovals and adhered them together with a 1″ X 2″  strip of DSP in between.  The 1″ piece cut from the front section is now added to the inside edge of the card with the flap strip underneath it.  This cut off piece serves two purposes,  It breaks up the pattern on the inside of the card, and covers the strip section of the flap for a more finished look.

The inside is the opposite side of the DSP from the flowers.  In case you are not familiar with this DSP, it is the thickness of the Thick Whisper White and Thick Very Vanilla.  It is perfect for showing off both sides of this beautiful paper.    The writing area is a 2 1/2 X 4 1/2 piece of Whisper White.  It still gives plenty of room to write your message and wish Happy Birthday.

A Heads Up type reminder:  The Sale-A-Bration only has another week to go.  If there are any items you are still interested in, grab them now.  This also applies to the special release items.

Another Heads Up:  The 2017-2019 In Colors will be retiring with the new Annual Catalog which arrives in June.  Generally some of the colors are out of stock almost as soon as the retiring list comes out.  But we KNOW these are going to retire.  So if you need re-inkers, or more card stock in the five retiring colors, please order them now!  That way you will get them before everyone realizes they are retiring.  I for one will be very sad to see Lemon Lime Twist retire!  I love that color.  Hopefully it will come back in the next color refresh, but you never know.

One more item that is going away the end of the month is the Craft Carry Tote!  It is part of the SAB Join Promotion.  Please read the options below for the two types of Starter Kits.  The Carry Tote is one of the options.  I truly love my tote and use it all the time!

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will return tomorrow for another project.  The supplies I used today are listed at the bottom of the page.

Birthday Cheer

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.

Notecard Birthday

Today I have the ultimate in simple cards for you.  Something I have mentioned before are the packs of notecards in the Occasions Catalog.  They are easy to overlook but are on the bottom of page 26 with the Happiness Blooms Memories and More Card Pack.  They are the Happiness Blooms Memories and More Cards and Envelopes.  There are small note cards that measure 3 X 4 and large ones measuring 4 X 6.  You get 10 of each size plus 10 envelopes of each size!  That is a WOW for $8.50.

I took the small notecards and made a quick and easy birthday card.  All I needed was one stamp set and a punch.  Here you are!

 

Stampin' Up!, Happiness Blooms, Amazing Life, Jackie Beers

Happiness Blooms Notecards , 148806

 

The front of the notecard is Night of Navy with a white inside.  I coordinated the yellow layer to match the birthday candles and the Happy Birthday on the inside.  Here is the inside view:

 

It was very simple to punch the circle from the front.  I layed the stamp down to see which punch fit it and determined the 2″ Circle Punch was the perfect fit.  I then centered it on the front and punched.  I stamped through the hole to insure the perfect fit.  That is so easy to do with the photopolymer stamps!  I then stamped the sentiment on the inside with the Daffodil Delight but low enough to not be seen from the outside.

The front sentiment is from the Amazing Life stamp set as well as the cake and Happy Birthday.  So a two product card!  A Win/Win to me.  I hope you think so too.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I have all of the products at the bottom of the page.

Piece of Cake

Have you heard that the Sale-A-Bration Organdy Ribbon Pack is back in stock?  It came back sooner than expected.  Woohoo!!!  It is FREE with a $50.00 order.  And as before, it is while supplies last.

Today’s card is just a cheery card with what has become one of my favorite colors.   Coastal Cabana is sort of a sleeper I believe.  I love it, but then go to using my usual colors.  I used it on one of my Club cards for last month and fell in love with it again.  Here is today’s card.

 

Piece of Cake, 148610

 

I have paired the Coastal Cabana with Melon Mambo and love the way they compliment each other.  The two pieces of Designer Series Paper are from the How Sweet It Is pack.  I love the bright and the more subtle mix of the colors.

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another new project.  The complete supply list is at the bottom of the page.  Remember that you have less than a month to take advantage of the current JOIN PROMOTION.  You can read all of the details below.
