Happy Birthday!

This card was inspired by Anne Marie Hile. I saw a version of this on the Pals Paper Arts and I copyed & created it for my daughter's birthday. She turns 30 and I needed a gorgeous card to match her beauty inside and out!

The Delicate Doilies Stamp set and the Flirtatious Paper are awesome! The Lace Ribbon Border Punch is a must and accents the card perfectly! The Flower is a Sizzix Die created by Tim Holtz and I've used it over and over for cards and scrapbooking! It goes together so quick and easy. Visit the Sizzix website at: Be sure to visit the Outlet Section for bargains up to 80% off! I just purchased some Alphabet Dies there at a substantial savings!

So glad Piroutte Pink is back and when paired with Melon Mambo- the colors are vibrant ! Stampin' Up's Hostess Set, Happiest Birthday is easy to earn. Talk to your friends and place an order together and you'll have the amount you need for this set. There is so much on my
Wish List right now too!

Flirty and Fun!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the new Flirtatious Paper and Delicate Doilies Stamp Set! Ohhhhh, and the In Colors are amazing and you'll need to add those to your MUST HAVE list!

I started with Wisteria Wonder paper and stamped some doilies in the Wisteria Wonder Ink and added some contrast with Whisper White Ink. Squares with cut with the 1&1/4 inch square punch out of the Flirtatious Paper. The squares were layered on Whisper White and then embossed with the Finial Press Folder. Another doily was stamped in Pumpkin Pie Ink, punched out and applied to the front. Happy Birthday is from the Hostess Set Happiest Birthday Wishes which is easy to earn with Stampin' Up's new Hostess Program! Contact me and I'll do a workshop in your home. Don't want to clean? I'll have it at my house, do all the work and you reap all the Hostess Benefits!

Happy Stampin!

Oso Fabulous!

This Oso birthday card is for my grand daughter, Anna. She just loves this cuddly bear and her 2nd birthday party will have Oso flair!

It takes three special steps to create this!

1. The Oso image is on the Disney Network website and it was downloaded and applied to Stampin' Ups Designer paper.

2. Anna's name was stamped with Tempting Turquoise and punched out.

3. All the layers come together on Tempting Turquoise card stock.

Follow this blog for more Oso items for Anna's Birthday party!!

Get your Crab on! Crabs are so popular this year- I've seen them on shorts, dish towels and now cards! I found this cutie on Raquel Mason's Stampin' Blog and just had to copy and add my own touches! The Stampin' Up punches work great to create this Crabby Creation!

The Water paper and Googly Eyes were purchased from Hobby Lobby- all 1/2 price and the shells were from the Sizzix Outlet that is online. Sand is created with Stampin' Up's Sahara Sand Paper and then torn, layered and sponged with Chocolate Chip Ink. The legs were made with a square punch and then cut along the 2 sides.

Stampin' Up Items used:

Paper: Whisper White #100730, Real Red #124290, Saraha Sand #101650

Punches: Extra Large Oval#119859- The smaller oval punch is no longer available and I used that for the claws!

Ink: Chocolate Chip#100908, Real Red #103133

Happy Belated 4th of July!

Happy Belated 4th of July! This card is CASE'd & I can't remember where I saw it.

Independence Day honors the birthday of the United States of America and the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. It's a day of picnics and patriotic parades, a night of concerts and fireworks, and a reason to fly the American flag.

I just love the Land of the Free stamp and I know you will to!

Stampin' Up items that would love to come and play at your house:

Land of the Free # 123100
Real Red Card Stock #102482, Real Red Marker #100052
Night of Navy Card Stock #100867, Night of Navy Marker #100069
Whisper White Card Stock#100730

Embossing Folder #119976 - Square Lattice

The Star Brads were purchased on Stampin' Up's Clearance Rack and any red, white or blue ribbon would look amazing! The Star punch was purchased at a local craft store!

Happy Birthday USA!

Christmas in July

My daughter Jessica is cleaning out some boxes in her basement and found some ornaments, some greenery, and her glue gun! She created this beautiful wreath while watching her Person Centered Expressive Arts Therapy DVD! She's quite the multi-tasker! I don't know if she is taking orders, but you can contact her at:

It may seem early to think about Christmas, but to folks who craft, it's right around the corner!

Enjoy and love to all!
