Picture Perfect Birthday

2018_01_21 I love birthday stamps mainly because I sent so many birthday cards throughout the year so I was so happy when the new Stampin Up occasions catalog featured the Picture Perfect Birthday #145519 stamp set. The Picture Perfect stamp is a fabulous set for a fabulous birthday, with candles, ribbons, confetti, and more!  Be sure to check out the Stampin Up Occasions Catalog for all the other great products in the Picture Perfect Party birthday suite, along with lots of new and fun products for other occasions as well.

Climbing Orchids

2018_01_23IMG_0648 Today’s post is absolutely stunning and uses quite a few products from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  Cammie wanted to make a great impression so she started off by texturing the base layer with the Stampin Up Layered Leaves #143704 Dynamic Embossing Folder.  Cammie built her delicate orchids using Climbing Orchids #143723 stamp set, the coordinating Orchid Builder Framelits #143747 and painted the petals with an Aqua painter to add color to the petals.  The flowers were assembled and placed on a stem cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits #143751.  Cammie finished the card using a sentiment from the Dragonfly Dreams #142924 stampset.

Memories and More card

2018_01_22 For today’s card I used a card from the Stampin Up Memories and More Color Theory Card Pack #144210 to create this simple card.  The Color Theory Card Pack contains 52 Double Sided cards that are intended to be used for scrapbooking and memory making.  The 4″ X 6 ” cards are perfect for creating card fronts  and combining with other coordinating supplies to create a quick and easy card.

Hang In There

2018_01_17IMG_2881 Phantom of the Opera has made its way back for a short run in Columbus Ohio so I wanted to pull out the now retired Chandelier Thinlits die for the dramatic focal point. I added the beaded jewels stamped from the now retired Season to Sparkle stamp set and the background paper is from the now retired Merry Music DSP from Stampin Up,   I made a few of these cards to have on hand for friends and family are going through a rough time.

Red Red Wine

2018_01_16IMG_2857 I was so happy that Stampin Up decided to carry over the Half Full # 144996 stamp set from the Stampin Up Holiday catalog.  The Half full set was one of my favorite sets and was my go to set for today’s card.

Frosty Storage

2018_01_15IMG_2930 When I saw these ziplock storage containers in the store it looked as though it was a kit to make a snowman.  Well I fell for it and bought it only to find that it was indeed not a kit at all.  I had to pull from my button stash to make the face and body.  I hand drew a carrot nose and cut it out.  I am so bummed that you cant see the felt stovepipe hat crafted by my husband but trust me it was good.  The best part is the containers were filled with white cheese balls that were perfect and yummy.  I gave the gift to my friend who loved it but I will think twice before falling for the advertising tricks.

Simple Snowflake

2018_01_14IMG_2918 I will be first to admit that I like living with 4 seasons but after the first cold snap with snow I am done with winter!  So with that being said winter in Ohio and most of the country this year should be over.  Today’s card is super pretty  and simple using the now retired Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adding basic rhinestone bling.

Smitten with Coffee

2018_01_13IMG_2927 Before putting away my Christmas stamps and dies I decided to make a few winter themed birthday cards using the Christmas products.  I started off by texturing the background with the now retired Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from Stampin Up.  I also cut the mittens from the now retired Many Mittens Framelits that are perfect for holding a warm cup of coffee or hot chocolate cut from the Wood Textures DSP #144177 using the Coffee Cups Framelits #143745.  The sentiment came from the now retired Smitten stamp set.

K Cup gift holder

2018_01_12IMG_2806 I made these cute K cup coffee holders for my coffee loving friends.  They are the perfect gift to warm up on a cold day and give a caffeine boost for getting thru the winter blahs!  The Stampin Up Coffee Break DSP #144155 was the perfect paper to create this holder.  The sentiment is from the Coffee Cafe’ stamp set #143677 was a great addition to complete the gift.
