Welcome Baby Boy


T’is Monday again! Today’s share is a gift/card combo that I made for my brand new nephew. I loved the wrapping paper and really wanted to incorporate it into my card so I used a little piece of it behind the designer frame.


The blue is Pool Party and I covered the “L” with Crystal Effects to give it a nice glossy shine. The ribbon was a scrap from Stampin’ Up but it is from a few years ago (I hoard all my crafting supplies!). The cute little Real Red heart is from the Owl Builder punch. It is the same one that is on the card.


I used the Stripes embossing folder on the Whisper White card stock and I used a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set and colored it with my blender pen and Pool Party ink. I used a little Organza Ribbon for under the sentiment and that’s about it. I’m a little wordy here but it was an easy card and I love that it matched my gift! ❤


Good Ol’ Betsy


Happy Spring Everybody!

As I type this I am sitting in the backyard trying to soak up some rays while they last! Aren’t the colors on this card springy?! This is a CASE card that I just love.The original designer is Amanda Mertz (www.didyoustamptoday.blogspot.com). I just changed up some of the colors, sentiment, and ribbon.

I kept with the Crumb Cake but used Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, and of course Melon Mambo! I used Sassy Salutations for the sentiment and popped it off with the Daffodil Delight Stitched Ribbon.

At my next event our guest star will be none other than the lovely Betsy… Betsy’s Blossoms that is. We are going to be focusing on good ol’ Betsy, so my next few posts on here will be made with that stamp set. Stay tuned for more! 🙂

Bathing Suits + Bright Layout = SUMMER!


I have decided to do it again! I am going to enter another challenge. This time it’s for the Late Night Stampers group Summertime Challenge.  The challenge states that the project must scream summer! Well bathing suits and bubbles does it for me but add a Crushed Curry sun and we’re golden (no pun!), haha! 😀

This is an easy 8×8 layout. The sun rays are actually from the star punch and the colors I used are Crushed Curry and Pool Party. The DSP is from a few season ago . I’m so happy they brought Crushed Curry back!
