Celebrate the Good Stuff

Hi friends,

Today I'd like to share with you a card I tweaked from  the Occasions Catalog.

I simply LOVE the Picture Perfect Designer Series Paper –… this was so easy to make!

The base is Peekaboo Peach , then a layer of Lemon Lime Twist.

The top layer is a piece of the designer paper!

Then I added a strip of tear & tape adhesive and fan folded a piece of Bermuda Bay Mini Chevron ribbon!

How cute is that?

Attached two banners with the greeting, a few sequins and voila!

What do you think?

You can click on any of the products and it will take you to my online store!






Hope you enjoyed this card! I know I had fun making it!

This is Your Birthday Card

Hi Friends,

Welcome back.  This is one of the cards we made in my Birthday card class last Saturday.  It was inspired by…. Lorri Heiling –another talented Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator!

The message is stamped on Vellum then a piece of the new Berry Burst ribbon threaded through and …voila!

(and those donuts have NO CALORIES!)

How cute is this!

The Designer Series paper is so striking and fun!

Plus we made an envelope flap for the Whisper White envelope–another simple yet added touch to make this card too darn cute!!!!

And what do you think about the message?

It covers ALL BASES don’t you think? Stinkin cute!

Happy Birthday

Hi Friends,

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

I saw this on Pinterest! It was made by Carol Payne–another talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

It was fun and easy to make so I wanted to show you.

This is another card we will make at my class tomorrow!




 Here are the supplies I used to make this card:



Half Full Embossing Paste Bricks

Hi Friends,

Embossing paste is FUN and easy to use!

It creates another dimension and interest to what ever project you are making!

Add a hint of color to it and you have yet another layer of dimension!

This card was copied from one done by Demonstrator, Tami Hewlett.

I love her color combos and the added Embossing Paste gives it a bit of elegance.

What do you think?



 Here is a video by Stampin' Up! showcasing this fabulous new product:


Stay tuned for another gorgeous card with a different palette of colors.
