Yesterday was my niece’s 21st Birthday.  I can now show you her card since it is safely delivered. The pressure was on to do something different – and spectacular.  I came across this Pop Out Swing card by Julie Davison.  You can see that card HERE and the instructions are there too for you to make your own.

Here is my card using ‘Celebrate Today’ and the Balloon framelits.


It took a little bit until I was happy enough with the swing and I think it is a card that you personally give to someone to show them how it works rather than sending it them in the mail.

Here is the front of the card.  The greeting was cut using the ‘Project Life – Cards and Labels’ die. A little glimmer always goes down well on a card too. 🙂  I cut the square from the centre of the front of the card using the Squares Framelits.


You can’t tell by the photo but I heat embossed the 21st with silver embossing powder.  It gave it a nice shine. The 21st is from the set ‘Memorable Moments’ (soon to be retiring – have you got that set yet???).

I think it was well-received.  Happy 21st Megan. x

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend,


Stampin' Up!

Below you can see the stamp sets in these bundles just to help you out. So you don’t have to go fumbling through the Catalogue.  NB. I have just added the wood-mount images but they are available as wood and clear mount.  The prices are just for the stamp set only but use the bundle prices as in the table above.

Do you recognise the Bright and Beautiful stamps??? These are a little sneak peak from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue.  This would have to be my most favourite set from the catalogue AND you get the Star Framelits in the bundle.  Gotta love that!
Here is a close-up.  Isn’t it gorgeous???  How nice would it be heat embossed??? I can’t wait to get my set later this week to play.
