Goulish Googlies

I couldn't resist Stampin' Up's Goulish Googlies Designer Kit!  It comes with treat bags and orange and white twine, but I bought it to create Halloween Cards in a flash!  I just love the eyes that have the adhesive on the back so they are really easy to stick on your cards.  The oval shape is decorated & ready for your favorite stamp and I used bats from a $1.00 stamp I found at Michael's. 

Thanks for looking! Happy Stampin' and if you need any Stampin' Up, please contact me to order or order online now!

Pinwheel Card

I visited the Stampin' Connection where they showcase amazing cards and found this one.  I wanted to make an "End of the Summer" card and send it to a dear friend. It was created by Donna, who is a Pug lover like myself!  Loving the Pug breed has nothing to do with the card but I just had to add that!  Donna is an amazing stamper and has encouraged me to try and expand my business!

The Pinwheel is made from two squares, then cut diagonally and held together with a brad.  Add some ribbon, punch some card stock and stamp a phrase and it's done!  My pinwheel squares are 2&1/2 inches and I suggest you use a 2 inch square so the pinwheel will be slightly smaller and fit better in an envelope.

Thanks for looking and call me to order or place your order online with me now!  Have a great day!

Fall Card

I saw two variations of this card and I believe it could be on the Stampin' Connection or a Pals Paper Arts Challenge.  Anyhoo, I made it my own!  I finally purchased the French Foilage Stamp Set and I LOVE it!!!  Why did I wait so long???? Don't know!  I used a button from my grandma's button tin!  I've got plenty of those and just love to embellish my cards with them!  Thanks for looking!

Piano Card

Have a piano player in your family?  Or just want to create a card in 15 minutes or less?  This one is for you.  I CASEd this card from Ellen Smallwood- She's a member of Mary Fish's Pretty Pals. 

Grab your Word Window punch and use Basic Black and Whisper White for the piano keys.  Place a strip of adhesive on the card and apply the keys, add some ribbon and an embellishment and you're finished!! 

Some of the inside verses you could use: You are the Song in My Heart; Your Friendship is Music to my Ears; Good Luck on your Recital or Great Job at your Recital!

Butterfly Punch

This card is inspired by Windy Ellard from the Pals Paper Arts.  I reached for the Brights Collection Cardstock that goes so well with the Summer Smooches Designer Paper.

Layer 1: Daffodil Delight Card Stock
Layer 2: Embossed Pacific Point Card Stock
Layer 3: Summer Smooches Designer Paper with Scallop Trim Border
Layer 4: Whisper White Apothecary Accent Framelet
Layer 5: Embellished Elegant Butterflies

Stampin' Up's new Elegant Butterfly Punch also has a coordinating Stamp Set!  I love this punch as the butterflies are so dainty!  

The Warm Wishes stamp is discontinued, however, you can use any stamp that you wish.  Would also make a nice Happy Birthday card or Thinking of You card!
