Bright Birthday Banter


Happy Birthday to my pink and Black banner loving friend, Kim.  I pulled out all my Stampin Up banner stuff, (Hearts a Flutter#130159, Bitty Banner Framelits #129267), the new Back to Black DSP #133700 and went to town.  I added some birthday sentiments from the Itty Bitty Banner stamp set #126257 and the Good Greetings stamp set that will be available soon.  I added plenty of mambo pink and Tangelo Twist ribbon including the new 3/8 ” Stitched Satin #133669 and the 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon #134556. Yum!  The whole banner was created on top of the Large Polka Dot Textured embossing folder #133739 and of course no card to Kim can be done without a little bit of rhinestone bling #119246.

Silver Slipper


Cinderella would love to receive this card! Cammie got her inspiration from the card sample on page 39 of the 2013-2014 Stampin Up catalog.  Cammie stepped it up by embossing the shoe from the Fabulous You #126522 in silver and added 2 fun pennants cut from scrap DSP using the Hearts a Flutter #130159 and pennant framelits #132173.  Cammie added a small heart and the sentiment from the now retired Curly Cute stampset.

Right side of the Barn

2014_01_31IMG_0543 (3) Well I used my yesterdays card as my inspiration to make this sympathy card for my aunt who lost her husband, my dear Uncle Rick, who my son referred to as “Barn Man”.  To honor Barn Man I chose to make an old barn with 2 etched hearts symbolizing the 59 years of marriage and the love for their 7 boys and their families.

I used soft suede ink on 2 pieces of crumb cake cardstock using the direct to paper method.  I then used the Hardwood Background stamp and espresso ink and stamped the barn on both pieces of cardstock.  I then used the Hearts framelits #125599 to cut a heart in one of the pieces.  I stamped the heart using the Hearts a Flutter #129252 stampset and colored it with pink pirouette marker until I got the desired color and was happy with the way it turned out.  RIP Rick Matson.  You were a good man and a legend in your own time!

2014_01_31IMG_0543 (4)So then I wanted to take it one step more and make it a little simpler so instead of stamping and coloring I just used the small heart framelit to cut another hole and reveal the pink heart.  I then added the sentiment from the Hip Notes #133504 and now I love this card too.   So my inspiration from yesterdays post was a double bonus!

23 Years and still kicking

2013_10_27IMG_4047Today’s card is to commemorate my anniversary.  I can’t believe it has been 23 years since I married my BFF and I must say we have had more good times than bad and hope to have many more years together.  Enough sap for one day!

Today’s card is a direct CASE (Copy and Share Everything) from page 59 of the 2013-2014 Stampin Up annual catalog.   For the card base, I used the wonderful Naturals Composition DSP #126917.  I used 2 stamps for the sentiment: One in a Million #126382 and Hearts a Flutter #129252 and the cut it out using the Apothecary Accents #127003 framelits.  I hand cut a banner from a piece of scrap DSP and tied it with a piece of twine.

When I am in a pinch, I love to use the Stampin Up catalog to find a card design because the hard work has been done for you.  If you have been inspired by the Stampin Up catalog and made a card please send it to me (cathymorgan@wideopenwest.com) in a .JPG file and I will post it on the blog.

MDS Hybrid birthday card

2013_07_16IMG_3392_It’s Tuesday so it is digital download day at Stampin Up.  Stampin Up offers new digital downloads every Tuesday and they can be used with Stampin Up’s My Digital Studio and other non SU digital applications. Today’s card is a hybrid card started out as a digital card that I created in MDS and had printed using Stampin Up’s printing services.  I used some scraps of DSP and the Hearts a Flutter Framelits #130159 to add a “real” banner tied with Island Indigo Bakers Twine #125575.  I completed the banner by adding a Itty Bitty flower punch #118309 and a basic rhinestone.  It is fun to have the digital card bases on hand and ready to he hybridized when you need a card in a pinch.

Simple and sweet Valentine

2013_02_13IMG_0963I love a simple white on white card and I think this is my favorite one of my Valentines I made this year.  I drew my inspiration from Pinterest.  I used the Hearts a flutter framelits #130159 from the Stampin Up spring catalog to create the heart and the arrow head.  The DSP I created using MDS and the digital More Amore download and printed it at home.  Love the way it turned out.
