Wiper Cards





Starting next week I will be sending my brother David a card a week for 50 weeks. That's when he will turn 50. This wiper card is the first one I will be sending. I used a discontinued Stampin Up set, whisper white and night of navy cardstock,patterned paper is from last years level 1 hostess paper pack, night of navy ink and button. The white ribbon is from Offray(Micheal's).

The cat wiper card is made with same supplies and stamp set is from the clear stamp set "Cats" from Inkadinkado.

My wish is that you enjoy the day and find time to stamp and be creative!

Owl Punch Anniversary Card(CASED)



When I saw this card I just knew I had to CASE it!!! The original card is found on Crystal's Blog "Crafting and Rambling...a place to share". She is a very talented Stampin Up Demonstrator. I even used the same card stock: Afternoon Tea along with garden green, whisper white, basic black, cherry cobbler. I changed the leaves positions a bit and used stampin dimensionals to pop up the owls. Don't you just love the bow made from the tiny hearts and added a crystal in the center(reflections). I used the signo white gel pen for the eyes. Then I stamped the Happy Anniversary(Hero Arts everyday sayings set) with Timber Brown Stazon Ink. I really think my brother and sister-in-law will like it. I am going to make many more of these cards for different occasions. I just love the owl punch. Oh and the leaves were done with the sizzlets die. Between the punches and my dies for the big shot it has opened up a whole new dimension to my card making. What did I ever do without them. :0)

Have a great day and hope you find time to stamp today!

Stationary Boxes



Well, it is going to be a busy day for me. My brother and his family are coming in from Missouri tonight. I am putting the finishing touches on the house and games for the kids to play. Everyone that lives close will be here tomorrow and it should be fun fun fun!

Here is a picture of one of the many stationary boxes I made. I will be making more for the Black and Orange Cat Foundation fundraiser. I think they will be so cute with the animal rescue postage stamps they have out now.

I followed the directions from Stampin Up! Demo Jackie Topia. It was so nice of her to share the directions.

Step Card


Hello All!

I saw this style of card on Split Coast Stampers and had to give it a quick try. I used the retired simply sent card kit from Stampin Up.It's hard to see but the middle tag says "happy happy happy". It went together really quickly and I think I will use this to make my Christmas cards this year.

Now on to get my house ready for family coming in this weekend. It should be fun!

Happy Stampin!
