How To: Fun Fold using the Stampin Up Birthday Cheer bundle

I love the colors of this fun fold birthday card. The various shades of coastal cabana and lovely lipstick, create kind of an ombre stripe on the front of this card.

IMG_9372I used the "Marbled" background stamp on this inside of this card. I think this background goes quite well with anything I pair it with!

IMG_9375The fold on this card is a simple z fold. Fold the whisper white 4 1/4 x 11 piece in half. Then fold the front flap back to meet the original fold. Thats it. I added a piece of 4 1/4 x 31/4 coastal cabana cardstock to the front of the folded back flap. Be sure not to add adhesive to the right side of the coastal cabana piece.

IMG_9370The die cut gifts are cut from a piece of 4 x 3 whisper white. I love the look of these gifts against the "How Sweet it Is" designer paper. I also stamped the flap of the card with in coastal cabana, using a stars and dots stamp from the Birthday Cheer stamp set.


IMG_9373The greetings are stamped in basic black ink and the greeting on the front is punched out with the Classic Label punch.


I added a few sparkling, self adhesive, Twinkle, sequin stars to the front to make it shine. The Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green satin ribbon is a 4" piece tied in a knot and attached with a glue dot.


Isn't it just so fun?

Baby Card Ideas

This is such a cute baby set, called, First Steps, that I used in my recent Card Class. We made three different cards using the same layout, but in different colors. Sweet and simple.

This is the powder pink card:


This is the balmy blue card:


This is the daffodil delight card:

IMG_8420I used whisper white cardstock and layered it with sahara sand cardstock and ink.

So simple and clean. The bows were attached with glue dots.

IMG_8419Aren't they just so sweet? The perfect card for those new little ones!

Thanks for stopping by.

Stampin Up Birthday Cheer Bundle

How about a gender neutral birthday card thats fun for all ages? This is pretty much a monochromatic card, because it uses only one color in addition to white, gray and black.

IMG_8555The framelits that coordinate with the Birthday Cheer stamp set, are the bomb dot com. All I did was cut them from a piece of basic black cardstock and placed it over the lemon lime twist cardstock. So simple but such a "wow."

IMG_8556I'm so happy that the black glitter ribbon has carried over from the holiday catalog. Its one of my favorites. I paired it with the granny apple green ribbon as well.

IMG_8557The Stitched Rectangle Framelits are also new in the Stampin Up Catalog. So happy to have rectangle framelits now! I've added a few stars to give the card a little shine.

IMG_8558Can you think of anyone who would love a birthday card like this? I sure can!

Vrooom... Geared Up Garage for the Manly Man

We all need masculine cards and usually its more difficult to design cards for men. However, Stampin Up has the perfect solution. The Geared Up Garage bundle is the perfect set for the manly man in your life.


The Classic Garage designer paper is the best! So many cool designs for the classic revved up greeting card.


I used the Garage Gears dies all over this card. The larger gears on the basic gray circle are embossed instead of die cut. I used the Big Shot Emboss Pads to emboss instead of cut. I'm loving the little wrench. The Classic Garage Metal Elements come with both wrenches and keys. Totally cool.


Any guy would love to receive this card for a birthday or fathers day or any celebration.

Thank you for visiting.

How To: Shaker Card using Sweetest Thing candy jar bundle

I'm a huge fan of shaker cards and this Sweetest Thing bundle was the perfect set to use for this fun shaker card that we made recently at my Card Class. I used 2 different ideas from 2 of my stampin friends, Lynsay Mahon and Amy Storrie, to design this sweet birthday card.

IMG_8463The whole Sweetest Thing suite is so yummy! I used the How Sweet It Is designer paper as well as the new two tone ribbon and some fun Iridescent sequins.


First I stamped the jar on a 2 x 3 inch piece of whisper white cardstock and colored it in with my Stampin Blends alcohol markers. I then cut out the jar with the Jar Of Sweets dies in the middle of the 4x3" How Sweet It Is designer paper. Next, I attached a piece of 2.5  x 3 inch window sheet on the back side of the designer paper with snail adhesive.

IMG_8476I then used Foam Strips cut into pieces to place closely around the jar. Next, I filled the jar with Iredescent sequins, peeled off the paper from the foam strips to expose the sticky adhesive and then attached the window sheet piece over top- lining up the cut out jar with the stamped jar.

IMG_8460I attached the Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green ribbon around the pinepple punch cardstock before attaching to the highland heather card. I then added the greeting in lovely lipstick ink.

IMG_8464Shake, Shake, Shake.... isn't this an adorable birthday card?

I hope you'll give this shaker card a try!

Treat Box from Mrs. Santa

I loved making these darling treat boxes for my team this year. I used the Stampin Up Acetate Card boxes and simply cut them in half (while they were flat) at 3" with my paper trimmer. These remind me of the old cassette tape boxes, way back in the day.

I used the Signs of Santa stamp set and dies. The dies are sold out but the stamp set is still available until the end of the month (at least for now)


I measured the box to get the size to cut the poppy parade cardstock. The box is 41/2" x 41/2" then I scored at 3" and 3 1/2" so that it slide into the box and had a little flap. 


I also used some garden green cardstock embossed with the Maps Etc. emboss folder. The circles were cut with the Layering Circle Framelits dies.


Aren't they just so cute? I used velcro to hold the flap closed. Do you want to see what I put inside?


Found these Christmas Kit Kats that fit perfectly inside. I also stuffed some metallic pearls and peppermint candy inside for my team members.


I made lots to hand out as small gifts to friends and family as well. These are great for gift cards and lottery tickets too!



I will definitely be making these again for other holidays and occasions. They are so much fun to make and look so darn cute!



Hope you'll give this cute idea a try.

Thanks for stopping by!
