A Million and One Thanks

This is a card I am sending for one of my Yahoo swap groups.  The main colors are Midnight Muse, Cherry Cobbler and Pear Pizzazz.  I love the swirly sentiments in this new stamp set called Million & One.  I hope you like my card!

Thank You Notes

Aren't these cute?  The butterflies are covered in Washi-tape.  This card is a case of a card that was shared from the Fiji trip.  I changed the colors, the button and the sentiment but otherwise it is the same.  These will be put in with my June orders.  I hope you like my cards.

Oval Framelit Box

I made this box from scratch using Crumb Cake Cardstock and the Oval Framelits.  If you would like directions on how to make this cute box, join Linda Heller's Stamping School.  Complete directions are on one of her videos!  I hope you like this!

Another Catalog Case!

Check out page 76 of the current SU catalog and you'll see the inspiration for today's card.  What isn't evident in the picture is the window sheet that has been embossed with the Modern Mosaic embossing folder.  I wish my camera could pick that up.    New chevron ribbon used on this card, too! I hope you like my card.

For the Baby

Recently one of my fellow demonstrators gave birth to her second child.  This is the card I made to send to her.  The color is Wisteria Wonder and So Saffron.  I figured she was probably receiving enough pink cards for her sweet girl.  This card uses the Baby Tees wheel and the sentiment is from One in a Million.  I hope you like my card!

Stretch Your DSP

 Those of us who do classes to share our love of Stampin' Up are always looking for ways to stretch our DSP, that is to make a small piece go a little farther.  This card uses only one 4x4 piece of the Secret Garden DSP.  It is cut into three pieces:  one is 4 x 2.5 and glued to the top of the card.  One piece is 4 x 1 and glued to the bottom.  In between a 2" piece of whisper White carries the sentiment and covers the breach.  The remaining 1/2 inch piece of DSP is used on the inside to add that little extra something.  Hope you like my card.

Flower Filmstrip

Tis card is the result of an unusual swap in one of my groups.  We had to pick three things from one of the members' information in the database and make the card accordingly.  This particular member said that she liked the movies, flowers, and the color pink.  I decided this filmstrip card would showcase all three!  I hope you like my card.

Amazing Friend

This card is a total Catalog Case of the card on page 117 in the new SU catalog.  I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to get all the individual stamps to line up just right. This uses 3 stamps from Amazing Family and also the large stamp from Layered Labels. I used Versamark and clear embossing powder for the background stamp.  I just noticed my poor green butterfly is trying to escape! I hope you like my card!

In-Color Swap Card

I signed up for a sketch swap in one of my swap groups.  This card is a result of that sketch swap that had to have a birthday theme and 4 items on the front panel in honor of the group's 4th birthday!  I decided to use the new SU 2013-2015 In-Colors for my focus.  Hope you like my card!

For the Birds

I made this card for one of my swap group Sketch swaps.  I used the For the Birds stamp set, watercolor paper and the new 2013-2015 SU In-Colors.  The background paper was printed using My Digital Studio.  I hope you like my card!

May Orders Thank Yous

My Thursday girls ( hi Kathie, Jen and Joan!) decided to hold their orders until May 31st so they could take advantage of the new catalog.  These are the thank you notes that I will be adding to their orders. I saw a similar card done by Julie Davison and I just loved it.  She had some white ribbon on her card but I decided not to add ribbon this time.  She also had some actual gingham paper for her card and I decided to try to use the gingham wheel.  That was hard!  It kept going crooked!  I did eventually get three small pieces of yellow/white gingham check that I could use for my cards.  It sure would have been easier if I had one of those Wheel Guides.  Hope you like my cards.

It's a New Year!

So, it has been 2 years since I posted anything on my blog.  I don't have any excuses, I just didn't do it!  I'm not going to be crazy and promise to post every day here, but I will try to be more diligent.  I have some new Stampin' Up! products that I've been experimenting with.  This card uses the Wildflower Meadow and Label Love stamp sets with one of the new in-colors, Strawberry Slush.  I stamped the wildflowers first, then cut that layer with the oval framelit, then ran it through the embossing folder.  I love the extra touch that the pearls add, don't you?  
I hope you like my card.
