Here are a few details/features of my card:

  • I used Stampin’ Up! Silver Foil Sheets to die cut the gears piece. It makes such a great background.
  • I embossed the Night of Navy Card Stock with the Sublte Embossing Folder before using the Stitched Rectangle Framelits to create a frame.
  • I used a piece of the 6 x 6 Daffodil Delight Designer Series Paper (available in the Brights Collection package) as a background paper.
  • I used Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends to color the car.
  • The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings. It’s punched with the Classic Label Punch and then trimmed to fit in the corner.
  • I finished the card off with a piece of Night of Navy Baker’s Twine.

Please let me know if you have questions. I’d be glad to help! Be sure to visit all of the other stampers on the hop today!

So Long to Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper

Gingham Gala and Delightful Daisy

Gingham Gala and Delightful Daisy

Hello Stampers!

If i was forced to choose a favorite product from Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions Catalog, I think I would choose the 6 x 6 Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper. This paper pack — featuring Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather, Lemon Lime Twist, Grapefruit Grove, and Balmy Blue — is just perfect for a variety of cards and projects. Here, I used the Daisy Punch to create the daisies from  the Gingham Gala paper.

It’s important to note that this great paper won’t be available after June 3 (or while supplies last). It’s only $11 for 40 sheets of paper.

Other fun elements included on this card include the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies, the greeting from Itty Bitty Birthdays, and the Subtles Embossing Folder.

Thanks for stopping by today. Please let me know if you have questions about this card or other projects. Click on the graphics below to be taken directly to my online store where you can purchase the ingredients used to make this birthday card.

Happy May Day!

Stampin' Up! May Baskets

Stampin’ Up! May Baskets

Hello Stampers!

Do any of you remember May Day? Did you bring treat baskets to the neighbors’ houses, ring the bell, and run? I’m not sure if anyone even does that anymore! I’ve made these for a class and have a few leftover for our neighbors. I’ll ring the bell, but I probably won’t run!

I used Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Cups available in the Occasions Catalog. You get ten cups for $8.50. These will be retiring, so you’ll want to grab a package a two. They’re very fun to decorate for a variety of occasions. A couple of months ago, I made one for dog treats. See that post here.

I added a handle using a strip of Pineapple Punch card stock measuring 8 1/2 inches by 3/4 inches. I glued that strip to the inside of the cup using Tombow Glue. The Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper worked well for the May Day theme. I used the template provided by Stampin’ Up! I’d love to send one via email, if you’re interested. Then, just fill and deliver!

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy May Day! To see a list of products used, scroll to the bottom of this post. Each photo takes you directly to my online store where you can shop 24/7.

Butterfly Gala

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Gala and Butterfly Duet Punch

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala and Butterfly Duet Punch

Hello Stampers!

The Butterfly Duet Punch has been one of the most popular Stampin’ Up! punches of all time! It coordinates with the Butterfly Gala stamp set. Both of these can be found in the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog. The good news is that the punch will also be available in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. (You can order from that catalog beginning June 4.)

However, buy them now as a bundle and receive a 10 percent discount.

The color inspiration (Petal Pink, Mint Macaron, and Pool Party) for this card came from the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper. You can see the little strip of it that runs across the middle of the card.

I stamped each of the butterflies in each of the three inks and stamped them on their coordinating card sock. I then punched them out with the punch. The cool thing about the set is that the little butterfly and big butterfly are hooked together on the same stamp so it’s easy to punch.

The colors definitely say spring, and it’s finally here in Nebraska. I’ve made a lot of these cards to express my gratitude.
