Mom Eclipse Card

Mom

We are getting a new catalog in June and that means some items in our current catalog are retiring. I am really going to miss these large letter dies. This is an eclipse card, look close and you can see the letters in mom stand out from the card.

Happy First Easter Baby Boy

We are delighted to have a new baby boy in our life. This is the Easter card I made to say "Happy First Easter". This card design would also make an adorable card to welcome a new baby. I am not a fan of coloring, but it really was an easy color. The card came together quickly.

Calypso Coral Blooms

Today I tried the Bloom by Bloom stamp set and I am in love. I used Calypso Coral on this version, I can't wait to try lots of other color combos. I made this a Birthday card, but this beautiful bloom would also work on a Sympathy card or a card just for mom. The Rectangular Stitched Framelits made it easy for me to cut the two pieces for card front and the stitching added a special touch.

Pretty Flowers in Rich Razzleberry

Do you have a favorite Stampin' Up! paper pack? Well yes, I love them all but my very fav and the one I will miss the most when the new paper packs come out in the new annual catalog is Share What You Love. The paper is slightly heavier so I can use it for gift boxes as well as for cards. Four of the designs have a pearlized finish. Of those 4 designs, the paper I used in this card is my absolutely favorite. And because I was loving the pearlized look, I added one of the pearlized doilies.

By the Bay in Night of Navy

This image would work for so many occasions AND it comes from a stamp set that is free until the end of the month with Sale-a-bration. I used Night of Navy for my background color, but you could use a variety of colors.

Hello Cupcake in Gorgeous Grape

I needed a card to send to someone who is in the business of selling cupcakes - I think this fits the bill. My friend Jessica shared a cupcake card, I made some changes to her card idea. I liked the card so much, I am making more with a birthday greeting inside. If you want to make this card too, check out my supply list and directions.
