Birthday Cake for 1

When I ran across the single serve cakes in a cup I bought a box of 4 of every flavor and then went to town on the creative packaging complete with a candle wrapped around the ribbon. I used the Stampin Up acetate card boxes and tucked a cake packet inside with some shredded paper.  I wrapped a piece of It’s My Party DSP  (retired) around the box and tied it with a piece of ribbon and a candle.  I then created the accent piece by brayering  the backside of the now retired foil snowflake doily with melon mambo ink.  The stamped image is from the now retired See Ya Later stamp stamp set

Cloudy Days

2014_06_19IMG_0919 Today’s card is a tribute to the rainy days that we have had lately and it is a welcomed rain that helps beat the summer heat.  I used the clouds textured folder to texture the card base layer.  I made the white clouds using the Word Bubbles #132968.  I used the bitty banners framelits#129267 to cut the daffodil banner to anchor the sentiment from the now retired stampset See Ya Later..  For the main focal point panel, I stamped the flowers from Embellished Events #126497 and then stamped the  boot in daffodil ink from the Bootiful Occasions #126597.  I restamped and embossed the boot in white on pacific point cardstock.  I cut the boot out and pieced it on top of the stamped yellow boot to complete the card.

See Ya Later SAB

2014_03_30IMG_0893 Well today is the last day of another successful Stampin Up Sale-a-bration.  You have until midnight Mountain Time to place an order to receive the free SAB items.  I thought I would say goodbye to SAB with today’s card featuring mostly SAB items.  For the swampy effect, I used the Gorgeous Grunge #130517 to stamp the background of this card using monochromatic color-pool party ink on pool party cardstock.  I added a strip of sweet sorbet DSP #133521  (free SAB item) to create a “lily pad”  I then created the alligator using the Petite Pennants Builder #122362 punch for the head, the teeth were cut using the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die #120893 and the eyelids were punched using the Owl Builder #118074 punch.  For the body I used the Chalk Talk #129983 and stamped the See Ya Later #133533 (Free SAB Item) and then textured the head and body with the Decorative Dots #133520 (Free SAB item) to give it the alligator feel. 2014_03_30IMG_0894 I got really creative by wrapping the DSP around the back of the card and added his tail punched from  Petite Pennants Builder punch. I think this made for a cute surprise and a fond farewell for the  Stampin Up Sale-a-Bration.  See ya later!

Hello sunshine


It has been a long winter & spring break is here so that must mean we can expect more cold weather but if we think sunshine maybe it will come.  Today’s card is a fun one using the banner punch (free item) #133519 to create the sun rays.  The center of the sun was punched with a circle punch from the fabulous water color wonder DSP #132994 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog. The smoky slate background was textured using the Decorative Dots texturing folder (free item)#133520 and the clouds were cut using the Word Bubbles framelits #132968. I framed a whisper white cardstock strip with 2 pieces of Tangerine satin ribbon (retired item) and stamped the sentiment with the See Ya Later #133533 (free item) stampset to complete this al occasions card.

All the free items used in this card are part of Stampin Up’s on going sale-a-bration.  For every $50 spent in merchandise from the annual catalog, the occasions catalog, online clearance rack, or  MDS digital downloads you can earn free products from the Stampin Up Sale-a-bration catalog.  Sale-a-bration is not over yet but it will be soon- March 31st is the last day to take advantage of this great offer.

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!

Sweet Sorbet Birthday

2014_03_07IMG_0555For today’s card for my dear friend Sue Bixler who is celebrating a milestone birthday, I knew I wanted to use the birthday stamp from the See Ya Later #133536 stampset (free item) because I love the expression: I don’t believe it’s your birthday… you don’t look any older than you did last year. To create the peek a boo banner in the Sweet Sorbet DSP #133521 (Free item)background paper I cut an elongated banner using the Bitty Banners #129267 framelits.  I stamped the sentiment and then hand cut another bigger banner and added a piece of cantaloupe bakers twine from the sweet sorbet #133522 (free item) accessory pack.   There you have it a card made using all free products! In case you have not heard the Stampin Up Sale-a-bration is in full swing and for every $50 you spend you can select a free item from the special sale-a-bration catalog.  Sale-a-bration is on going through March 31st so hurry and take advantage of this fantastic deal. Happy Birthday Sue!

See ya February

2014_02_28see ya later 002-later gator

Happy Last day of February and the Stampin Sale-a-bration is in full swing.  You still have 31 more days to take advantage of the Sale-a-bration and earn free product from the Sale-a-bration catalog for every $50 spent in Stampin Up merchandise.  Today’s card is a super cute card Cammie made using some of the sale-a-bration products.  Both the background DSP and the DSP strip are from the Sweet Sorbet #133521 DSP SAB collection. The sentiment is stamped from the See Ya Later #133533 stampset.  To accent the sentiment, Cammie made an alligator from punch art.  The face is punched from the Petite Pennants Builder punch#122361 and textured with the Decorative Dots (free SAB item) folder #133520. She used her fringe scissors 133325 to make the gnarly teeth.  She added 2 eyes bunched from the Itty Bitty Shapes 3118309 and added the fun googly eyes.

See ya later February and hopefully winter too.

SAB 2014 Birthday

2014_02_27ast See ya Later 001

Today is another day for a birthday shout out this week.  Today is our beautiful niece Alexandra’s 19th birthday.  So what better to celebrate your birthday than with a cute card complete with a cupcake?  Cammie used a strip of  Sweet Sorbet DSP (free SAB item) #133521 as the inspiration for this card.  She hand cut the scalloped edge and placed that on top of a cantaloupe piece of cardstock textured with the Decorative Dots #133520 (free SAB item).  The focal piece is the silver foil #132178 starburst cut using the Starburst framelit #132967 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog and then she cut a whisper white circle using the circle framelit #130911 and stamped the sentiment from the See Ya Later #133536 (free SAB item) stampset.  Cammie punched and assembled the cupcake using the Stampin Up Cupcake Builder punch #121807 and finished the card with a Pool Party bow from the Twine in the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack (Free SAB item).

Bite Me


Today is a Tuesday so that means it is Digital Download day at Stampin Up.  Be sure to check out the newest downloads for MDS available on the Stampin Up site.

Also on going right now it is the most wonderful time of the year at Stampin Up.  It is  Sale-a-bration time  and it is on going now thru March 31st.  During sale-a-bration, you earn free products including 2 digital download kits for every $50 spend in qualifying merchandise (before shipping and handling).  Be sure to check out all the other free products in the Sale-a-bration catalog and place your order today.

Stampin Up’s MDS software and downloads make it so easy to design cards in a snap.  Today’s post is a card that I made in under 10 minutes from start to finish using the free digital ensemble called One Big Sale-a-bration 2014, #134976, in the Sale-a-bration catalog.  This ensemble is everything in the Sale-a-bration catalog in digital form.  I was inspired by the Lacoste like alligator from the digital brush called See Ya Later to make today’s card. Using the crop feature, I cut out the alligator, changed his color to garden green and resized him to randomly place him on the sahara sand background. I then filled the pennant shape with a piece of the digital Sweet Sorbet DSP and colored the sentiment using the coloring tool inside the white oval and matted the oval underneath. Done!

Don’t be fooled by the title of this post because I used  the crop feature to take a bite out of the see ya later stamp.
