Crazy About You and Thanks!

I’m running a bit behind these days. Who isn’t? I’m just now sending out my thank you cards for all of my wonderful customers who ordered in November. Yes, I am Crazy About You! And, Crazy About You is the stamp set I used for this cards. Though, I think, the “Thanks” from the Hello You Thinlits is the star of the card.

I also used this card in this week’s Global Design Project challenge. Isn’t this a great color combination?

Notes about Crazy About You Card:

It was tempting to go Christmas with this challenge but I resisted. If you are clever, you know that the designer paper looks familiar. It is the flip side of one of the really cute and Christmassy sheets from the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper!

I’m not worried about having left over paper from this package because one side is really Christmas themes but the other side is usable all year long. Isn’t that great? By the way, this paper retires soon, so grab some up. Check the end of this post for the list of items retiring (Holiday Catalog).

Blooms and Wishes Any Occasion Card

There are so many things I love about Stampin’ Up! Whenever I go to make a card and I’ve selected the stamp set I want to use, I next think about the colors. Stampin’ Up! makes it so easy. The Blooms and Wishes stamp set is part of the Blooms and Bliss suite of items. When I looked at the Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper, I immediately had coordinating colors all selected for me.

What do you think?

Blooms and Wishes stamp set, Blooms & bliss Designer paper, any occasion card, MOJO Monday 477

One of the things I like about it is that I can use it for almost any occasion. It could be for Birthday, Thinking of You, Get Well, Congratulations, almost anything.

For the card I made for today, I choose, Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride and Island Indigo. There is also some Mint Macaron in the Designer Paper. Don’t you love this color combination?

I also made this card for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. this is a design I know I will use again.

Pretty Kitty, Bella & Friends – Craft Fair Fun

My good friend Toni and I run a small Craft Fair each December. She’s a talented painter and I do paper crafts. We have some other crafty folks  join us in our local community Center and have a few hours of fun and craziness! Here’s a peek at some treats I made for fur babies.I probably should have made more for kitties, lots of people here have one (or more) cats(s).  I used Pretty Kitty for the cat treats and Bella & Friends for the dog yummies.

Bella and Friends for Birthday

I love the Bella and Friends stamp set. That little dog is just so darn cute. So, when I needed a birthday card for a kid who loves dogs, it was a no brainer. Go to Bella! Here’s what I made.

Bella and friends stamp set, Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set, blender pen, Lots of Labels Framelits, Wink of Stella, Seaside Embossing folder, kids birthday, Stampin' Up!

How to make the Bella and Friends Birthday card:

  • Stamp Bella and her bird friend on Whisper White. I like to use Basic Gray for this. I think the black is just a little too bold and takes away from the colored image. Stamp an extra balloon.
  • Color in the bird, dog and balloon with a Blender Pen. You can certainly change up the colors. I used Pacific Point, Crumb Cake and Real Red. Color the extra Balloon red. Stamp the ‘It’s your birthday” sentiment with Pacific Point.
  • Next, cut out the image. Use one of the Lots of Labels Framelits. Use Paper Snips to cut out the balloon.
  • Emboss a piece of Pacific Point with the Seaside Embossing folder. Adhere to Real Red card front.
  • Adhere the Whisper White piece to the front. Add the balloon to the top of the balloon with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
  • Finally, add some Wink of Stella to the balloon.
