Bluebird of Happiness

LOL !!!  If you are my age, you probably grew up with the “Bluebird of Happiness” not being a good thing.  But that was exactly what I thought of when I saw the bird with the heart on top of the cart.  And that led to part of my color scheme for this card.  I am really happy with my bluebird here.

Friendships Sweetest Thoughts, 145826


My spring type flowers are my happy thoughts for warmer weather. I am tired of being cold!  I definitely would not make it living in the north.   So I went with spring flowers and soft colors.




The Night of Navy is a far cry from a “soft” color,  that  I was going for with this card.  I think it works though.  I believe it helps to draw out the color in the softer shades.  I hope you like it as well.  This was a super quick card to make and I hope you will give it a try.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today.  I very much appreciate it and I love your comments.  The supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.  Please contact me if you have any questions.

Three Treat 3-D box

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s December Blog Hop! We have a fun Blog Hop theme today – Wrap it Up! The hop is filled with projects that are perfect for this time of year – everything from gift-packaging ideas to bundling up to stay warm. We are excited to share our creations with you today.  After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

Thank you for joining me in this blog hop!  My wrap it up project is the 3-D gift I made as a gift.  This is my first post on a 3-D project.  I feel like I was channeling my inner Julie DiMatteo when I made it.  HaHa!!!!!  Julie is the 3-D Queen, and a great friend.  Although this project is from another SU Demonstrator’s YouTube video,

Here are a couple of pictures of the finished product.

Stampin' Up! Year of Cheer, Jackie Beers

Year of Cheer DSP, 144640

I used the same DSP as the demonstrator did in her video.  It was just perfect for what I needed.  Any of SU’s thicker DSP would be wonderful.  I changed the inner part to just Thick Whisper White card stock. I have already made a few in different colors as gifts.  They really are easy to make. I cannot wait to give them out.

I have also made templates for the top and the bottom.  I have not braved making a video tutorial yet, but this is one I would love to do.  I found a few tricks that worked for me.  I also used the 1 3/8″ circle punch instead of the Layering Circles Framelits that the other lady used.

Here are the templates I made.  Hopefully they will make sense.  If not, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Shawn de Oliveira at Shawn Stamps. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Oh Happy Day

The Stampin’ Up! Note Cards and Envelopes ( 20 cards and envelopes for $6.00) are a super value.  And this is what I have used as the base of my card today.  They are the same weight as the Thick Whisper White or Thick Very Vanilla card stock.  So you can stamp directly on them or layer, as I have done here.

Happiest of Days, 143796


I apologize for the white on white with my background!  I am working on my photography! yikes….

The note cards measure 5 X 3 1/2, so they are plenty big enough to use in a variety of ways.  The Calypso Coral card stock and the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper are really the stars of the show.  The two really help the stamped images pop.

The stamp set I used is the Happiest of Days set.  This is a small set that really is great to have.  You can see the set in the supply list below.  I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive and colored the cake with Stampin’ Write Markers.  So easy!  I also stamped the cake, minus the stand, on the front of the envelope.  I do this on most of my cards.  I believe it gives the recipient a smile before they open they card.

The beautiful ribbon is new to the current catalog and is Calypso Coral 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon.  It is even prettier in person.  There are three of the Ombre Ribbons on page 198.

The supplies I used are listed below. You can click on any item and be taken directly to my online store. Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you have a great day!
