I am me

2014_05_24IMG_4011 For today’s card I used the I Am Me DSP #130138 from the current Stampin Up catalog but it will not be available after 1 June. I added a piece of 1/4 inch real red stitched grosgrain #126875 ribbon to separate the two pieces of DSP.  I added a  paper doily #129399 with the sentiment from the One in a Million #126382 stamp set. I added 3 hand cut banners and the flower complete with a rhinestone.

Best Love Story Ever


First of all we need to give a birthday shout out to my high school classmate and dear family friend, Belinda. Today’s card is a simple layout featuring the Regarding Dahlias #130327 stampset and is packed with a whole lotta punch! Cammie embossed each flower in silver embossing powder and then hand cut each flower before placing them on the white panel.  The sentiment is from the One in a Million #126382 stampset and the card is double matted with a shiny silver glimmer #124005 mat and a melon mambo mat to create a beautiful wedding card.

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.

Above and Beyond Gingham

2013_08_05  I had so much playing with paper- Stampin Up’s Gingham Garden #129310 in particular.  To create the bouquet, I hand cut some of the white flowers from the Ginham Garden paper and added them to stamped stems and then added the sentiment from the One in A Million #126382 on the hand cut banner.  It sure is fun to create cards when I have all the coordinating products from Stampin Up at my disposal because it makes color matching a snap.

One in a million

Today I am letting the Stampin Up Patio Party DSP #126916 speak for itself.  This paper is so fun and it is easy to create  a cute and easy birthday card.  The sentiment is from the One in a million stamp set #126382.  This stampset has a a message for the outside and a coordinating message for the inside.  The inside greeting says “that makes you one in a million”.    The card also features the 3/8″ satin stitched ribbon in primrose petals.  This ribbon and the 4 other In Colors are part of the Stampin Up back to spool special during September.   For every $40 in product (before tax and shipping) you are entitled to a free spool of the 3/8 ” satin stitched ribbon,  Hurry this offer ends on Sept 30.
