Balloons to go

2018_08_24IMG_3485 Nothing says birthday like a bunch of hand delivered balloons.  The Hand Delivered #146808 Host Rewards stamp set fit the bill for today’s card.  I stamped the image and colored it in to match the gorgeous background paper from the Stampin Up Share What You Love Specialty DSP #146926.  I stamped and colored 3 of the balloons and popped them up.  The sentiment is from the Hand Delivered stamp set.

Hand Delivered Trio

2018_08_23IMG_3487

For today’s card, I started out by texturing the Blackberry Bliss card stock with the Stampin Up Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #146335.  For the focal panel I stamped 3 images from the Hand Delivered #146808 Host Reward Stamp set from Stampin Up to create a darling birthday card.

National Peach Day

2018_08_22IMG_3395 Happy National Peach Day and Happy birthday to my friend Kim who is a real peach of a friend.  I just used the now retired whole lotta lovely DSP from Stampin UP to make this card.  I fussy cut a peach from the DSP to add interest to the card.  The sentiment is from the now retired Fruit Basket stamp set.

Gift card purse

I made this cute little purse that holds a a note and a gift card inside the modified note card envelopes.  The paper is left over from the now retired Tutti-Frutti DSP.  The sentiment is from the Apron of Love #145835 stamp set from Stampin Up.  The purse closes using a small velcro dot.

Whales Tale

2018_08_19IMG_0752 Today’s card is a fun card that Cammie made with no stamping! This card is perfect for anyone in your life that loves to relive their fishing tales of years passed. Cammie used plenty of ink and sponges to create the ocean scene and the whales tale was done using the Lemon Builder #143712 Punch from Stampin Up.  The details on this card were accomplished with a white gel pen and a chalk marker and is sure to be a favorite for years to come.

Tickled Pink Magic Slider

Today’s card is purely magical.  I was challenged by friend and customer, Mindi to make a slider card using the Fabulous Flamingo #143758 stamp set from Stampin Up and then teach her how to make it.  Challenge taken and Achieved!  I have always loved the look of the magic slider cards but never too the time on how to do them so I scoured You Tube and Google to see how to do them and it was not that bad.  It took a lot of trial and error which was frustrating but I did not give up. The trickiest part is getting the track for the sliding mechanism to work but other than that it is not too bad.
