Rainbow Magic

2014_04_07IMG_1119 Well today I wanted to share with you another birthday card I received.  This card is special because it was made by none other than my baby sister Blair.  Blair had a goal to make 14 cards in 2014 and she is well on her way with this one.  This is her 2nd card of the year and what a bright and cheery birthday card it is.  It was a few weeks late but loved it just the same!  Way to go Blair… 2 down and 12 more to go to meet your goal.

Your Lucky Day

2014_03_17Shamrock On 001

Happy St.Patrick’s Day and it is a lucky day because you will be getting 2 cards today in one post.  How’s that for luck?  The first card is a real creative gem by Cammie.  She got her shamrock on by using the Ampersand textured folder #132970  from the Stampin Up occasions catalog and then colored the giant Ampersand with a basic black marker.  She added the Keep Calm sentiment from the now retired Keep Calm stamp set. She used an alphabet set for the Rock and then made a shamrock from the retired triple heart punch but any heart would work.


2014_03_17MG_0922The second card is one of my St. Patrick’s Day designs.  I used all  the Oval Framelits from the Stampin Up annual catalog and layered the rainbow of colors on top of one another.  Once I had all 6 layers, I cut the oval in half to get the rainbow.  Warning it is really hard to cut through that many layers with a std trimmer so I pulled out my big table top trimmer to get the job done with a clean cut.  I made the clouds using the Word Bubbles framelits #132968 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog.  I added the sentiment in one of the clouds from the See Ya later #133533 stampset (free item) from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  The gray  background  (smokey slate) was textured using the now retired rainy day clouds textured folder.

Hope you day continues to bring you lots of luck and plenty of green beer!

Lucky Charms

2013_03_20IMG_1337Just like the Lucky Charm leprechaun said, today’s card is magically delicious!  I was inspired by a card I saw on pinterest and decided to make a lucky card for my March customer and personal thank-yous.  The card looks simple but there was a whole lot to prep and used retired Stampin Up stamps and retired ink and coordinating cardstock to complete this card. The rainbow of shamrocks were stamped in 6 colors using the Happy for You stamp set and the sentiment is from the Afterthoughts sets.  The card base is embossed with the Cloudy day textured embossing folder #127022.  Hope I get lucky and find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
