Using Scraps for a Quick Birthday Card!

How can it be Monday already? Geez - I wish the weekends would be just a tad longer! 

Today I'm showcasing another card using the stamp set Big Day. I'm not sure you can tell but the card front is embossed with the large dot embossing folder. I then went through my scraps to create this fast and easy card.

In order to get the sentiment to be two colors, I just used my Stampin' Write markers and colored directly on the stamp. I then "huffed" it and stamped on my Very Vanilla Cardstock. I'm digging the red and turquoise color combo (which I pulled from my DSP). Have I mentioned how much I love that everything coordinates with SU! products. Sure does make it easy!

Celebrate Your Big Day!

Happy Saturday to you! Today I'm showing a card made using the stamp set Big Day. It's a FREE stamp set that you can receive when you order $50 in merchandise. It's one of the choices you can pick from during Sale-A-Bration. 

On this particular card I saw someone on Pinterest use the Dots Mask and knew I had to do it too. It's so easy and fun and it's such a WOW to see in person. I was going to change the colors but the red, orange and yellow just make me happy :D 

Since the sentiment mentions cake I decided to put the cake on the inside corner of the card. I colored the it a little again using the red, orange and yellow color scheme. 

We made this card for stamp club this month. It was our technique card. With the masks only being $2.95 (for two) it's well worth the price. The dots mask also has a stripes mask with it. I haven't used it yet but it's on the to do list!

YUM Goodie Bags! It's a Paper Pumpkin Kit!

I know I've mentioned Paper Pumpkin before. It's a monthly kit that arrives in your mailbox and has everything (except adhesive) you need to complete a project in about 30 minutes or so. Plus it's less than $25 a month!

This is a project from last month (January) that I'm just now getting put together. I knew when I saw it I wanted to use it as "thank yous" to my class participants as well as to a few special people.

The kits came with EVERYTHING - I didn't even have to use adhesive on this one cause they included glue dots on it. The kit came with everything to make 24 bags of goodies. The stamps included in the kit had Happy Valentines' Day but also had this ENJOY and YUM which is perfect for AFTER Valentine's Day!

And since I'm a monthly subscriber I can purchase extra kits if available. Which I totally did!! Yep, Abby will be having these next year for her class!

I hope you had a great weekend! Here is to a great week! Happy Monday :D Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope you are enjoying your Valentine's Day! I'm treating myself to some ME time and catch up on my to-do lists! Hubby is at an Eye Conference so we will celebrate another time. 

Remember this picture (you would have seen it on my Instagram or Facebook page..are you following? Click on links at right to following me!!)

I stamped, colored and cut all those one afternoon. I needed them so we could make Abby's Valentine's.

They were a big hit with the kiddos! Hope you get some extra love, chocolate and attention on this special day! Thanks for stopping by!!

A LOVE-ly Anniversary Card and More!

Today I have a few more examples using the Snuggles & Smooches Photopolymer Stamp set. I really got a lot of awesome anniversary/love/valentine cards from this set. And I know the swirl (to me) could look like flowers or elements and could be use for ANY occasion!

I think this card is an awesome Anniversary Card. Very simple to make too. I used Basic Gray and Real Red. I stamped the large swirl in Basic Gray ink. Then I stamped the LOVE sentiment in white craft ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. I stamped a few little hearts in Real red around it to finish it off.

Next up is just a sweet card for a friend. Again the focal points are those swirls - don't you love them? I punched the Snuggles & Smooches sentiment out using my circle punch and adhered to the card front. Again easy peasy!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Love You!

Today I have another creation to share with you using the Snuggles & Smooches Photopolymer Stamp Set. 

I really liked how this turned out! I stamped the LOVE using Crumb Cake Ink on to Crumb Cake paper. Then I used a White Signo Uni-Ball Gell Pen to "color" between the lines. It really made it POP off the card!

I think the card is perfect for an Anniversary or even Valentine's Day for the hubby! Thanks for stopping by today!

Weekly Deals On This *Snowy* Wednesday!

So I live in Kansas - that means we never know about the weather. We were told that this was going to be a bad winter. It hasn't. Yesterday it was 53 degrees and sunny - a little breezy but overall nice. Today it's supposed to be snowing - will it? I don't know...they've said it about 3 times and we've barely gotten a dusting. I'm ready for some good 'ol fashion piled up, can't go out, downright cold, snow!! So I'm hoping it comes.

In the meantime - where ever you are you might want to take advantage of this weeks deals. 

The Hamburger Box Die would be good for home made treats (think mini pies and cookies). Or the punches would be great for any project! Whatever you fancy you can find these specials right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!

My Silly Valentine

This is a CAS card - very easy to make! Just need a few ink colors and one stamp set (Snuggles & Smooches) and you get one super cute card!

I tell you those swirls are definitely my favorite part of the stamp set. So many cool things you can do with them. This was another project that Stamp Club made in the month of January. Gotta get a head start on those LOVE cards! 

Thanks for stopping by!
