"Girly" Birthday Card

Hope your having a great day! I am excited that I only have one more day to work until Thansgiving break!!

This is a cute "girly" birthday card I made. The base is the Melon Mambo cardstock(#115320) and the designer paper is the Razzleberry Lemonade (#115675). I stamped the balloons from the stamp set "Crazy for Cupcakes" (#111618) and used the Stampin Markers (Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, and Rich Razzleberry - these come in a set of 6 - (#116329)) to color them in. The "Party Hearty" greeting comes from the stamp set Party Hearty (#111532) and it fits perfectly inside the Word Window punch (#105090) then layered on the Modern Label Punch (#116630) that was punched out in Rich Razzleberry cardstock (#115316). Very simple, yet very cute! Enjoy!
Until next time, Happy Stampin'!

Simple "Thinking of You..." Card

I love super easy cards! This card is made with the Bashful Blue cardstock (#105120) and the Bashful Blue DSP(#112151). I used the stamp set Thoughts and Prayers (#113252) for the image. I layered the image on Bashful Blue cardstock and tilted it a tad to give it a little character. I just ordered the new Platinum Shimmer Paint (#116807) and I think I'm going to try it out on this card to give it a little sparkle! I hope you like this card. :)
Until next time, Happy Stampin'!

Christmas Gift Card Holder

Today I have a Christmas Gift Card Holder that would be the perfect Christmas present for someone! I like to give gift cards and so here is a great way to make one super cute! This card is made with the Real Red cardstock (# 102482) and the Merry Moments Designer Paper (#115672). The belly band is made from Very Vanilla cardstock (#101650) and the bow is made with the 5/8" Chocolate Chip Grograin Ribbon (#109051).  The image is from the Hostess Level 2 set Christmas Punch. I stamped the image in Garden Green ink (# 1022272) flipped the stamp over, removed the ink from the flower and used my Real Red Stampin' Write Marker (#100052) to color it back in. Then I stamped it on Very Vanilla cardstock (#101650) and then used the Scallop Oval Punch (#114889) to punch it out. This is a great Hostess stamp set because all the images have a coordinating punch! (that means no cutting! Yeah!)

On the inside, I used the Word Window punch (#105090) to cut the slit for the gift card.
Here are the dimensions for this card. 
Real Red Cardstock : cut at 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 3", 5 1/2", and 8"
Fold on score lines "accordian style"
Merry Moments DSP: cut @ 2 3/4" x 4" (adhere to front)
Apply adhesive to the back side (only put adhesive along the edge of the back side
so the gift card will slide in)
Belly Band: 1 1/2" x 7"
Wrap Belly Band around front of card and adhere.
Tie on your ribbon and add your greeting.

I hope you like this card!
Let me know if you have any questions.
Until next time, Happy Stampin'!

Faux Quilt Thanksgiving Card

Here is a card I made for fall/Thanksgiving. I saw this faux quilt idea from Dawn Griffith's website. The background card is Taken with Teal (#101584). I used 1 3/8" square punch (#103375) with the Autumn Meadows DSP (#116769). I puched random designs from the paper and layed them down side by side. Then I ran the squares through the Big Shot (#113439) using the Top Note Bigz Die (#113463) and tied a ribbon around it with the 1/4" Grograin Ribbon in Chocolate Chip (#109051). The acorn image is from the Autumn Splendor Stamp Set (#116503) in the Holiday Mini Catalog. I sponged around it and attached it to scallop circle (#109043). I used my Mat Pack (#105826) and my Paper-Piercing Tool (#116631) and poked a hole in each scallop. The greeting is from the Falling Leaves Stamp Set (#115368) and punched out with the Word Window Punch (#105090) and backed with the Modern Label Punch (#116630). I use this punch A LOT! I think it makes the perfect little touch and there are so many sayings that fit perfectly inside! I hope you like this card! I love the fall colors in this designer paper. They are beautiful!!
Until next time, Happy Stampin'!

Baby Girl

A friend of mine from school had a baby shower this week and I had to make her a card. I haven't had to make many baby shower cards so I was a little skeptical. This card turned out better than I expected. I love the Dazzling Diamonds (#102023) with the pink cardstock! (Pink Pirouette is a retired in-color) I used the Animal Stories (#116716) stamp set and the Short & Sweet stamp set (#115108) for the greeting. "Welcome Baby" is stamped in Jet Black Stazon (#101406) and punched out with the Word Window Punch (#105090) and the Modern Label Punch (#116630) The star is made with the Large Star Punch (#110710) layered with the Star Punch (#109045). It has Dazzling Diamonds TOO!!! :) I layered designer paper on the base of the card. The ribbon is Whisper White organza ribbon (#114319) tied in a simple knot. My friend loved this card and I hope you do too!
Until next time, Happy Stampin!

Masculine Birthday Card

Here is a birthday card I made for my father-in-law last month. I used the stamp set "Crazy for Cupcakes" (#111618) on Taken with Teal Cardstock (#101584). The Designer Paper is from the Autumn Meadows (#116769)  from the Holiday Mini. I used the Scallop Edge punch (#112091) on the DSP. I also used the new Modern Label Punch (#116630)  for the greeting. The greeting came from the stamp set Warm Words (#115108). I added the 5/8" Grograin Ribbon in Chocolate Chip (#109051) to give the card a nice little touch. Masculine cards are sometimes hard to make but this one worked out great! Enjoy.
Until next time, Happy Stampin'!
