Kathleen’s Cards

I am always so happy to receive cards from my friend, Kathleen.  She makes lovely cards and they are so beautifully put together.

One of the cards that was in my mail is this gorgeous Christmas card she made using the Delicate Ornaments Thinlits.

delicate-ornaments-thinlits-kathleen So elegant!

I also received this beautiful birthday card from her.  She used the Sitting Pretty stamp set and it is impeccably made – I love it.  Thank you, Kathleen!

Stampin’ Up! Year End Closeouts and Bella and Friends Birthday Card

Twenty-one years ago yesterday that I received a very precious birthday present as my grand daughter, Danielle, was born on my birthday!  What a wonderful birthday I had!  This year not so great as I’ve been so sick with a sore throat and laryngitis!  I hope it goes away soon.

I pulled out the Bella and Friends stamp set to make this card for her from her Uncle Colin.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Cupcakes Pop Up

These cards have been popping up all over so I had to give it a try and this is the result.  So sad that Watermelon Wonder will be leaving us next year as it’s a gorgeous color and that was the choice to make this card with the Sweet Cupcake Bundle.

Stampin’ Up! Baby Card and Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder

The Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and co-ordinating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch is one bundle that you may want to get if you don’t already have it!  Not only does it have the most adorable holiday images but I made this baby card using the bear.

I had to make a baby boy gift basket and they always ask for a card to go with the basket and I thought what a great idea to use the new Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Oh my goodness – it is awesome!  When you emboss it, you get this deep 3-D appearance on your card stock.  Can you imagine all the possibilities?

cookie-cutter-christmas-baby-blueThe card base is Soft Sky with a layer of Whisper White and then I cut a piece of Soft Sky 3 3/4″ x 5″.  I spritzed it lightly with water on both sides before running it through the Big Shot.  Because the embossing folder is very thick, you only need one cutting plate for the sandwich to run it through.  I stamped the bear image on a piece of Whisper White card stock using Soft Sky classic ink and then cut it with a circle framelit and layered it onto a scallop circle framelit.  The facial expression is stamped using Basic Black Archival ink and as I had a scrap of Red Glimmer paper on my work desk, I punched out a little heart from the Cookie Cutter Builder punch.  It’s adhered to the card front with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Baby Bear stamped with Soft Sky classic ink on a piece of Whisper White which was stamped with one of the banners from Thoughtful Banners and then punched out using the Duet Banner punch.

It’s such a precious card and I love it!

Stampin’ Up! Project Life Hello Lovely

On page 163 of the Annual Catalogue is the Project Life Hello Love Card Collection and Accessory Pack.  The Accessory Pack includes a stamp set that you can use with the cards.  I only just had a chance to open this up and I love it!

The card collection comes with 100 cards!!!   2 each of 50 double sided designed in 3 sizes – 3″ x 4″, 4″ x 4″, 4″ x 6″.   So easy to make into quick cards and here’s a couple I made yesterday – so fast and so beautiful!

For this card, I chose a 4″ x 6″ card, trimmed it down and layered onto a piece of So Saffron and attached to a Basic Black card.  The sentiment is from Tin of Cards stamped in Calypso Coral and a few Calypso Coral dots added to complete the card.

pl-hello-lovely-saffron

I love this next one and again the only thing that was stamped is the sentiment.  I used Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzazz markers to ink up the image from Suite Sayings, stamped it on Whisper White and punched it out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and layered it onto a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock punched with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Punch and popped it up with dimensionals over the Calypso Coral twine.

Stampin’ Up! Foxy Friends and Specials

You really want to have this Foxy Friends bundle as you can create a whole menagerie of animals with it.  I had so much fun putting this card together and was smiling the whole time as the skunk appeared to come alive as I was putting the pieces together that were punched from the Fox Builder punch.

Foxy Friends Skunk tentsvI haven’t made a tent topper card in a long while and this seemed to be the right layout for this sweet little skunk!  I also used the Thoughtful Banners bundle, Thoughtful Banners stamp set and Duet Banner punch, for the sentiment, the layering Circles framelits for the top part of the card and the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Paper really did make it pop!
