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.

Hello Sailor

2018_07_30IMG_1248 I was clearing out my retired Stampin Up DSP and came across this very old paper but new it was perfect for a new baby card and to showcase how wonderful it is to combine various patterned paper from the Stampin Up collections.

Oh Joy

2018_04_16MG_2878 Todays card is one that I made using products that were intended for Christmas cards and made a baby girl card.  This card features the background paper from the now retired Merry Little Christmas DSP.  I added the sentiment from the retired Watercolor Christmas stamp set onto a Stitched Shapes #145372 piece .  I added total cuteness with the Powder Pink Bitty Bow #144217.

So Gryffindorable


My friend loves all things Harry Potter so when she got pregnant I knew that I was going to buy her the Harry Potter onsies designed to wear each month so that you can see their growth over the course of the year.  The gift was perfect too because she is having a boy and the theme of the nursery is Harry Potter.  So to keep in theme with my gift, I made a baby card using a onesie die for a pattern I hand drew and cut out the lightning bolt. The onesie was attached to the clothes line with a mini paper clip.  The background was textured using the Stampin Up Brick Wall TIEF #138288.  I distressed the brick wall using the Gorgeous Grunge #130514stamp set. 

2015_11_12IMG_9118For the sentiment on the inside of the card, I cut the letters using the Little Letters Thinlits #133730 from Stampin Up to complete the themed card.

For the gift, I added the onsies on a piece to twine and attached each onesie with a mini clothespin to create a continues chain of Harry Potter onesies.2015_11_12IMG_9113 I have also added a close up of the super cute onesies.2015_11_12IMG_9114

Oh Boy OH Boy- How Fan{stache}tic


Today’s card is a fun interactive card I made for my friend who will be a grandma to twin boys.  I used the now retired Circle Card Framelits die for the base.  I added a piece of the Stampin Up Schoolhouse #138187 DSP. I cut the letters using the Little Letters Thinlits Dies #133730 and the Mustaches were cut using the now retired .Mustache thinlits.  The baby was just a 1″ circle punch with hand drawn face. 

Twin babies will be Fan{stache}tic for grandma because she can spoil them and send them home!
