Happy Belated Birthday Jack

Happy Belated Birthday Jack! I wanted to post this earlier but I wasn't able to get this to little Jack until this weekend and I didn't know if his mom Alyssa would see it, being that she is one of the Stampin' Mom's that I get together with. This was a quick and simple card to make so if you want something that doesn't require much time or supplies this is the card for you. I picked the DSP{designer series paper} that I wanted to use and just used several different patterns from it which works great because as we all know Stampin' Up colors all coordinate.
Paper: Pawsitively Prints II, Whisper White, Poppy Parade
Stamp Set: Party This Way
Ink: Poppy Parade
Accessories: Large Star Punch, Small Star Punch, 1 1/4 Square Punch, Paper Piercer and Mat, Bold Brights Buttons

love you

I made this card as sample to go with my shoebox swap to show another way to use the Valentine Defined stamp set. This card was also a contender for a possible card for our upcoming Stamp Camp so I wanted to share this with you earlier but it wasn't confirmed yet as to whether or not we were going to use it. Well it didn't make it as a Stamp Camp project but that's OK we have many great projects in store for you if you are attending. I have to say the Valentine Defined set is one of my faves right now and very easy to use and create with. I have to run I have lots to do today. Thanks for stopping by!

Valentine Defined Shoebox

Happy Sunday, my pictures didn't come out that good not sure if it's my camera or operator error or maybe my son got a hold of it again and changed the settings. Any whoo, today's post was for a shoebox exchange that I did last Sunday with my fellow demonstrator sisters, the theme was the occasions mini I also ended up using it for a 6th swap that I'm a part of. When I first got a glimpse of the new mini I saw the Valentine Defined stamp set and new I had to have it, I just loved those flamingo's aren't they just so darn cute. This entire stamp set is just so darn cute and is pretty versatile it doesn't have to just be used for valentine's day. I loved all of the other cards that I got to make at our shoebox exchange and will share some of those as the week goes on. Now go enjoy the rest of your Sunday and thanks for stopping by. Supplies:
Paper: Melon Mambo , Pretty in Pink, Whisper White Bold Brights Patterns Pack
Stamp Set: Valentine Defined {mini Occasions pg. 9}
Ink: Melon Mambo Classic, Melon Mambo Craft
Accessories: Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, Circles #2 Die, Tasteful Trimmings Die, 2 3/8 Extra Large Scallop Circle Punch , 1 3/4 Extra Large Circle Punch, Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon
*** It's difficult to see in the picture but I embossed the flamingo's using the iridescent ice embossing powder to give it some sparkle. =D

Happy Birthday, DAD!

Happy Early Birthday, DaD! I made this card for my Father in Law, his birthday is tomorrow but we are doing his birthday weekend starting today! I wish I could take credit for coming up with this candle idea but I can't I've seen them everywhere on all styles of cards so I'm not sure who to give credit to. I tend to use more neutral colors when making masculine cards but I decided to go with the bold and bright. I have to keep it short so I have to run the birthday festivities will be starting soon. Drop me a line and let me know what you think does this pass for a masculine card? Thanks for stopping by and have a happy Saturday!
Stamp Set: Everything Nice
Paper: Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Pawsitively Print II

Happy Birthday, Jen W.

Happy Birthday, Jen W.! Jen's birthday was last Sunday but I haven't seen her yet so I waited to post her birthday card. Jen is one of my good friends and my down line. I couldn't wait to break out my new stamp set Create a Cupcake which is featured in the NEW mini occasions catalog along with the matching handy dandy cupcake punch. I loooove it! If you haven't seen the new mini check it out here or email me at for your FREE copy. Thank you for stopping by but I have to run now I have lots to do today, Happy Friday! Supplies:
Paper: Melon Mambo, Whisper White Card Stock
Stamp Set: Create a Cupcake
Ink: Tempting Turquoise & Melon Mambo
Accessories: Top Note Die, Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Cupcake Punch, Punch Pack, Daffodil Taffeta Ribbon, Rhinestone Jewels and Frost Spritzer
TIP: If you mix rubbing alcohol and add a few drops { as many as desired} of shimmer paint together it's makes for a great spritzer. Our stampin mist bottle makes for a great bottle for this the spray is a fine mist which is perfect.
Below is a closer pic of the my cupcake with shimmer spray spritz, it's nice and glittery without the mess! =D
