cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


It was my gorgeous girl’s 20th Birthday yesterday.  I don’t know where that time has gone! I thought I would share the card I created for her.

It was a very quick card and very simple but what more do you need with the cute Playful Pets Designer Series Paper.  Those little doggies just make you smile don’t they?? She just LOVES dogs.  So I thought she would love all these little doggies – and she did!  To be honest I actually bought this paper for her as I know she will love creating with it.

The sentiment is from the Many Mates stamp set and coloured with the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. The sentiment was cut with one of the dies in the Tasteful Labels Dies set.  Underneath that I diecut a little banner strip with another die in the set.  The banner was with a little piece of the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper.   It is a little hard to tell but I added some loops of the retired Silver Thread under the sentiment.

If you are a cat lover there is very cute cat prints too in the pack.  Just so much cuteness in one pack.

Hope you have a great week.  Get some creating time in for you this week.  We all need that little escape.

cards, Challenges, Personal Ramblings, Stampin' Up!


Over the weekend I joined in on an Online Craft Day with some Demonstrator friends.  It was lots of fun with creating and sharing.  We had challenges along the way too and even some business chat with the lovely Clare from Stampin’ Up! joining us.  We had all planned to meet together BUT that couldn’t happen … Never mind. 🙂

This card is one I created for one of the challenges.  It was a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge so you had to choose 3 items in a row in a box.  I chose Embossing Folder, Designer Series Paper and Diecut Shape.

I had yet to use the Under My Umbrella set so thought I would pull it out.

Stampin' Up! Under My Umbrella

How did I go with the items for the challenge??

Embossing Folder – I used the Greenery Embossing Folder.  I think I ran the card through a little tight.  It did buckle a bit.  Something to be aware of.

Designer Series Paper – This was the beautiful Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper.  I  picked out the colours I used for the card from  this paper.  I chose Gorgeous Grape card mat. I used Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends as I didn’t have Melon Mambo Blends.  (I have just ordered them!!) and I used Rich Razzleberry too.

Diecut Shape – I diecut the white circle with the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Ok, I did add a punch to this card too. 🙂  I needed that to punch out the umbrella with the Umbrella Builder Punch.

The layout for this card came from the Case This Sketch #376 sketch.

I was happy with the finished card. I think I need to pull this set out and use it more.

Thanks for visiting me.

Have an awesome week.
