Boxed Gift set

2013_05_26DSCI0243 (1)Yesterday was our baby sister Blair’s 44th birthday and Cammie made her a box filled with a variety of all occasions handmade cards and postage.  So now she has no excuse that she does not have time to send a card.  Seriously, Blair is one of the busiest people I know.  She is an active duty CDR in the USN Nurse Corps, awife,  a mom to 3 teenage girls, a basketball coach to 2 travel teams so she never gets time to herself because she is always burning the candle at both ends.  So Cammie made it easy for her to be prepared.

So what is a pretty decorated box without a matching layered licious and super embellished birthday card to  plus a bonus card! The  Stampin up Blue Ribbon #125981 stampset was used and will be carried over in the new Stampin Up annual 2013-2014 annual catalog.  The paper doilies will also be carried over so get ready to be wowed by the new product in the upcoming catalog.2013_05_26DSCI0243 (2)

Blue Ribbon Birthday

2013_01_05IMG_0533 My son shares his birthday with our next door neighbor, Fred.    Chris is 17 and Fred is in his 70’s but Chris has always thought it was cool to share a birthday with someone he knows. I still can’t believe I have a 17 year old–Yikes that just means I am getting older but closer to retirement.

Their birthdays are January 5th and I posted my sons card there. Today’s card is the card we gave to Fred and  uses the World Spectacular DSP #126897 and the Blue Ribbon Stamp set #125981 from the World Spectaular product suite in the Stampin Up Annual Catalog.  It is wonderful how all the Stampin Up products work together to create a great card.

Blue Ribbon Dad

 So sorry for the blurry post but I made the card super last minute and took the picture before I gave this card to my Father In Law for father’s day before I checked the quality of the picture.  Anyway, this Blue Ribbon stamp set is one of my favorites from the new 2012 -2013 Stampin Up Annual catalog.  I used 2 of the new in-colors midnight muse and summer starfruit to make this super quick card.  Background was created using the Blue ribbon sentiment and randomly stamping in summer star fruit.  For texture I added 2 pieces of the new double stitched satin ribbon.

Some Pig

Our new neighbors impressed us with some smoked BBQ brisket that I had to send a thank you note and a hearty welcome to the neighborhood.  This card features the button buddies and stampset #122737 and the sweet buttons embosslit die for the pigs cute little nose!  I made a blue ribbon  by using the scallop punch and the scorepal to crease and then mountain – valley folded the creases to create the ruffled edge.
