A Little Bird of Thanks

Same stamp set, different color scheme, a whole 'nother personality.  If you saw my last post I used this stamp set with some colors from the Brights Collection and it is quite different than this card.  That's one of the great things about stamps!  The same stamp set can create so many different looking cards or scrapbook pages!

Stamps: For Everything
Ink: Jet Black StazOn, Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, So Saffron
Paper: Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Accessories: So Saffron 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Blender Pens


Thanks So Bright

I love bright colors!  I think the Brights Collection is the best part of the redesign of Stmapin' Up! colors.  Bright colors make me happy!  These flowers made me happy, so they needed to be bright!

Stamps: For Everything
Ink: Jet Black StazOn, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight

Vintage Thanks

If you've seen my blog a few times you know I'm not a vintage-y kind of girl, but I wanted to try something new.  I wouldn't have picked this stamp set as my hostess choice, but it was free during a demo promo.  So I figured I'd try it out.  I really like how it turned out. I don't know how often I'll use this set, since it isn't my style, but at least I gave it a shot, right?

Stamps: Because I Care, Worn
Ink: Night of Navy, Old Olive, Crumb Cake
Paper: Night of Navy, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Accessories: Hemp Twine, Stampin' Sponges


Funky Thanks

New stamp set alert!  Funky Four was the first stamp set I fell in love with from the new IB&C so of course it was on my first order.  With this card my goal was to use Garden Green since I don't remember the last time I used it and I've been going through Old Olive cardstock like it was water!

Stamps: Funky Four, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Garden Green
Paper: Garden Green, More Mustard, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Accessories: 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch, More Mustard 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon


Thank You Petals

Why did I wait so long to get this stamp set?  Seriously, it's been out for how long now and I just got it a month or so ago through a trade.  I just want to use it on everything now!  So, if you haven't picked Pick a Petal yet I highly recommend you do!

Paper: Pink Pirouette, Whisper White
Accessories: Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker, Rhinestone Jewel Accent


Thank Who?

Are you ready for a marathon of thank you cards?  Let's start off with a simple, but oh so cute one!  I love the owl punch!  That little owl is so stinking cute!  I've used a lot of new products on this card and I'm having fun with some new colors, too.

Corinne's Baptism

This weekend was my daughter's baptism.  It's been a busy few weeks leading up to it between making invitations, sewing her gown, planning the party, baking and decorating the cake.  Oh, my goodness.  I am tuckered!!  So while I'm relaxing take a look at the invitations I made.

Birthday Buttons

Another birthday is upon us!  This is the card my little helper assisted with.  I totally CASEd this from a fabulous card I saw on SCS.  I really wanted to use Circle Circus and while perusing the gallery I found this great card using faux buttons on the leaf.  I wanted to try out Cherry Cobbler and once I got started I was afraid it would look too Christmasy, but my wonderful hubby assured me once I put a birthday sentiment on it it would not be.  And I think he was right!  Thanks, hubby!  Oh, and I'm kicking myself for not having bought this Kraft (now Crumb Cake) cardstock before!  I love it!

Stamps: Circle Circus, Hugs & Wishes
Ink: Cherry Cobbler
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Big Shot, Little Leaves Sizzlet, 3/4" Circle Punch, Scallop Trim Punch, Lattice Embossing Folder, Crystal Effects, Stampin' Dimensionals


My Little Helper

Stamping is more fun when you're not stamping alone!  And this is my stamper in training.  She's just two months old and already helping me put the finishing touches on her Noni's birthday card.  I see many more stamping days in our future!  :)


Point to the Birthday

We have a birthday in the family today so this one is in the mail (hopefully arriving in time).  It was an easy peasy one to make.  Not much stamping here.  But my desk is messy nonetheless and I couldn't find my Stamp-a-ma-jig imaging sheet, so it's just by sheer luck the sentiment is stamped straight!

Stamps: Big Birthday Candle
Ink: Taken with Teal
Paper: Taken with Teal, Close to Cocoa, Sweet Pea DSP
Accessories: My Way Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals


Thank You Bloom

I finally got around to using some of my new goodies!!  And can I just say I am in love with Marina Mist!?!?  It's a gorgeous color!!!  I'm so happy to have this color in the collections over Brocade Blue or Ballet Blue.  I've got a pack of this cardstock in my next order!!  And this is one of the new Level 1 hostess sets.  Isn't it lovely?!?!  I love hydrangeas!!  This got my stamping mojo going and now I just want to stamp, stamp, stamp!!  I've missed it while on my little hiatus (AKA new role as a mom).

Cute as a Button

I'll admit I used some non-Stampin' Up! Sizzix dies on this one.  OK, just the alphabet.  But that's the great thing about the Big Shot.  You can use Stampin' Up!'s exclusive dies, but you can also get other Sizzix products to use with it as well.

Stamps: None (gasp!!!)
Ink: None
Paper: Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst, So Saffron, Whisper White

Landon's Baby Book

My cousin is going to have a baby boy any day now!!  As a gift I made an 8" x 8" scrapbook page for her so all she'll have to do once Landon arrives is print some pictures and glue them down!  So the next few posts will be pages of the book. 

This is the book cover.  It's just a plain brown scrapbook, so I added some ribbon and a Chipboard Element to fancy it up a bit.

Accessories: Pumpkin Pie 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Hemp Twine, On Board Chipboard, Word Window Punch

Another thank you card!!! This one came together really quick, mostly because it was inspired by a card I saw on SCS. I don't remember the last time I used my Stampin' Sponges so it was fun to get them out again.

Ink: Rose Red
Paper: Whisper White, Sweet Pea DSP

Pick a Petal of Thanks

Corinne is still being given gifts and I'm still making thank you cards! I recently acquired Pick a Petal in a trade so I was so excited to use it for the first time! I love the look for the paper pieced petals so I had to do that first. And I liked the drawn lines of the petals and the center of the flower so I hand-drew the lines around the edge of the card.

Paper: So Saffron, Whisper White
Accessories: 1" Circle Punch, Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker, Paper Snips, Stampin' Dimensionals


Wonderful Father

This is the 3rd Father's Day card I made. This one is for my dad. I dug through my stamp sets to find one I hadn't used in a while. I veered from the norm with this card, because I usually only use Wonderful You for fall cards and scrapbook pages. I think this is the first time I used it without using a brown or orange color.

Stamps: Wonderful You, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Old Olive
Paper: Old Olive, Whisper White
Accessories: Hemp Twine, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals


1st Father's Day

Today is my hubby's first Father's Day!! We've got a nice day planned including a small present! Accompanying the present will be this card. I wanted to make a robot for DH and I saw a card on SCS with a punch robot so I used it for inspiration. DH liked the Smooch Spritz on his dad's card so I used some Smooch Spritz on his card, too.

Gearing Up for Father's Day

Father's Day is tomorrow!  Are you ready?  I had a heck of a time getting this card done and in the mail.  Not because it was terribly difficult, but because I had a fussy baby hanging out with me while I was stamping.  It took me all day, but I finally finished it, but I don't think it's going to make it to it's destination in time.  I'm sure my father-in-law will understand, though.

Happy Mother's Day

Today is my first "almost" Mother's Day.  My little one didn't want to arrive before Mother's Day, but I still got some snuggle and love from my first born furbaby.  I did send out two Mother's Day cards, though.  One for my mom and one for my mother-in-law.  And they have a good story to go with them!
I wanted to emboss on my cards, so I got out the glossy cardstock, inked up my stamp with Versamark, stamped, painstakingly colored the image with Stampin' Pastels, inked up the stamp with Versamark again and overstamped, poured embossing powder on my cardstock................and my embossing gun wouldn't work!!!!  I tried it in a different outlet (even though the lamp plugged into that outlet was working) and it still wouldn't work!!  I was so upset!  Not that it is now dead.  It is almost 6 years old after all, but because I took all that time to color in the image and now I had no way to heat it.  So, with a resourceful eye I scanned the craft room to see what I could do.  And it hit me!  The iron!!  So I headed over to sewing land and grabbed the iron.  I turned it on, held it upside down, and set my cardstock on top of it.  It worked!!!!!!  I did have to kind of hold the cardstock down on the iron (not with my fingers!) to melt all the embossing powder and it did overcook the embossing powder easier, but it turned out OK.

Smooched Butterflies

My 8 year old niece had a birthday this weekend so I had to make a girly card.  This was the perfect opportunity to use my new Smooch Spritz that will be available in the Summer Mini starting next month.  I used the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz on my Bashful Blue card base.  It gave a very soft shimmery effect.  I can't wait to use this spritz on more projects (and get the other two colors I didn't preorder).  I'm going to have fun with this stuff!!!!!

The four colors of Smooch Spritz coming are Vanilla Shimmer, Silver Foil, Gold Glow, and Log Cabin.

Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly
Ink: Pixie Pink, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Bashful Blue, Pixie Pink
Accessories: Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz, Piercing Tool, Stampin' Dimensionals


Punch Buggy

No, no, not the VW kind.  The baby kind! 

So are you tired of the baby thank you cards, yet?  Sorry........I have a one track mind these days.  And a lot of thank you cards to write.  This baby buggy is so easy to make with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch.  And using the 1 3/8" square punch for the "cut out" part.  This card was so easy to make.  Just piece everything together, glue it down, stamp your sentiment and you're done!

Stamps: Trendy Trees
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Paper: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Whisper White
Accessories: 1 3/4" Circle, 1 3/8" Square, 3/4" Circle, Double Circle, Scallop Square Punches

More Thank Yous

It was fun to make a card here and there as gifts trickled in, but since I now need a bunch of cards at once I had to go the mass production route.  But I think I came up with a cute design that was quick to put together.  I made several cards with each animal assembly line style.  I'll probably make some more using the lion, owl, and fox, which I didn't use in these ones.  I love this stamp set!!  The animals seem to be perfect for every baby/birthday/thank you card I need these days!!  If you don't yet have it it's in the Occasions Mini which is only going to be around until the end of April, so get it while you can!!

Whale of Thanks

As the gifts trickle in I make cards!  I guess I should try to make a few ahead of time.  Maybe I will get working on that this week!  This one is going in the mail tomorrow.  I used last week's card sketch from SCS as inspiration.  I thought the Summer Sun panel needed a little something so I made a faux button!  It looks way cuter in real life!!

Today I am going to a wedding.  And this is the card that will be included with the gift.  If you remember this card from the bridal shower you will remember that the wedding colors are burgundy, orange, yellow, and brown.  So, I used those colors in my card again.  I wanted a soft look on the card, so I used Stampin' Pastels to color the Medallion and sentiment which I had stamped in Versamark.  I added a little ribbon and my one layer card was complete!  Have a great day everyone!  I'll be dancing the night away!

Nursery Art

 I haven't been able to share anything with you recently as my laptop went on a business trip with the hubby.  But I've got it back and I have some art work to share with you!  I bought these frames from IKEA to make some sort of art work for the nursery.  I knew I wanted to use Fox & Friends, but wasn't sure how I was going to make them.  One afternoon I sat down and just got to work.  I like the idea of the uppercase and lowercase alphabet like in Defining Alphabet, but since I don't own it I'm improvised.  I used Short Order Alphabet and my Stamp-a-ma-jig.  The theme of the nursery is brown and white, so the monkey and owl tie in with that.  I'm planning on hanging the giraffe picture in the middle since it's got some color on it.  I'm so excited about how they turned out.  Now I just need to get them on the wall.
