My youngest, Maureen Erin (Mo), will be 29 today and I am so blessed to have such a thoughtful and loving daughter.  She is also a Demonstrator and so much fun to be around.  My oldest daughter, Amy,  also a blessing, is a Demonstrator but she lives in TN and I do not get to see her as much.  However, we all try to plan SU conventions and on stage locals together.  We all love Stampin’up! © and look forward to doing all things that bring us closer together.  This is just one of the ways and it is so rewarding.

Can’t stop using the in-colors on my projects.  I really love all the in-colors this year and they go well with some of last years colors.  I designed this card with the set, Build a birthday, page 25.  I used the in-colors, Mint Macaron, Flirty Flamingo, Watermelon Wonder and Crushed curry on Whisper White card stock.  I layered it with Flirty Flamingo and Mint Macaron is the base card.  In addition, I used a white gel pen to highlight and add a border.  I finished off the card with In-color enamel Shapes, page 177.

I created this card using the stamp set, Pineapple, page 124.  I embossed the image in clear embossing powder on whisper white card stock.  I then sponged the areas around the pineapple with Cucumber Crush and Peekaboo Peach creating the resist technique.  I blended the very bottom of Peekaboo Peach with Flirty Flamingo to create a little more interest.  The stamp for the banner is from the set, Birthday Banners, page 15 and so is the sentiment.  It was cut out with the Bunch of Banners framelits, page 193.

This card was created with the Birds and blooms thinlits, page 194 of the AC.  I used the Hardwood background stamp, page 125 and cut the images out from Marina Mist Card Stock.  The card base is Crumb cake CS and I used the Pearl basic jewels, Page 177 for the eyes.  Sentiment is from the stamp set, Best Birds, page 53.

I created this card with the set, Birthday Fiesta, page 11 in the AC.  Colors used were Soft Suede, Sahara Sand, Pumpkin Pie, and Cucumber Crush.  I love this set because it is so versatile and comes with matching Fiesta Time Framelits, page 193.  You can get this set and framelits for a discount if you buy the bundle together.

I created this card with Balloon Celebration, page 12 that comes with a matching Balloon Bouquet Punch, page 13.  This is another set that you can save 15% by buying the bundle.  The set comes with 28 Stamps so you can certainly create a ton of cards with this set.  I love a set that contains both images and sentiments.

One of my favorite sets this Occasions catalog is the Party Wishes, page 5 and the matching DSP, It’s My Party, same page.  What an incredible bundle this is.  This set is so versatile you can make card after card and never run out of new ideas.  I am posting a ton of cards made with this suite so watch for it this month.

I borrowed this set, Party Wishes, page 5 OC, from my daughter Maureen (Mo).  It was one of those sets that I said I didn’t need when the new OC came out.  Again, was I wrong!  This set is so awesome!  I have made many cards with it and I keep telling myself why don’t I just go ahead and buy it.  She purchased the stack of DSP, It’s my Party, page 5, which I did not purchase, another bummer!  However, she is so kind to let me use as much as I want of hers.  I can’t stop making cards with this bundle.  The three Party Punch pack that matches the set is the BOMB!   Watch for more to come on this great set.

I created this card with the Rose Garden framelits page 18 of the OC.  I colored this rose with Melon Mambo and Mossy Meadow inks.  The banner and the sentiments are from the set, Number of years, and the large number framelits, page 11 and 10, respectfully.

I created this card from the set, Hey, Girl, page 45 of the New AC.  This is the cutest set.  There is even a little scottie dog that I can’t wait to make a card with.  I needed a birthday card last week so I whipped this up.  I used the Subtles DSP stack for the background and used our new Whisper White Thick card stock for the card base.  I am in love with that CS and have already gone through 2 packages.  You can find that on page 149.

This set can be found on page 6 of the new AC.  It is so versatile with all the different sentiments.  Can be used for any type birthday or celebration for that matter.  I used the new in-color Mint Macaron and the In-color DSP paper stack. This set was so popular and sold out so fast when it first came out.  I am so glad they carried it over to the new catalog.

This is one of the cards we will be making tonight at our Friday night Hostess club.  I used the New Ronald McDonald set (last page of the new AC) called Sprinkles of Life.  It has a matching punch and is called the tree builder punch, new this year and can be found on 167.  I used the colors Chocolate Chip and Mint Macaron.  In addition, I used the new Embossing Folder, Elegant Dots, page 174 for the sprinkles.  Hope you like it!

I have lost track of how many cards I have designed with this set.  It has to be the most versatile set ever.  I used Pink Pirouette and Crumb Cake.  I colored the pearls with Pink Pirouette Blendabilities.  This is one of the cards we made at the last camp.  Everyone loved it, hope you do too!
WARNING: I had something happen with this set.  The little stamp that says New York is gone.  I think I threw it out with the trash when I cleaned up the dinning room table.  It is so small that it is easily missed so be careful when you are stamping with these little stamps, especially if they are photopolymer.  I love this set so much I will buy another one because I have to have that missing stamp.

21. January 2015 · Comments Off on Celebrate · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , , ,

This is the neatest set, Celebrate Today found on page 11 of the OC.  I used the DSP from SAB catalog (Best Year Ever, page 4) to go with it.  I embossed in white, the balloons with a matching stamp and added Island Indigo with Coastal Cabana to deepen the color on the background.  The balloons are cut out with the matching framelits, also found on page 11.  You can get this stamp set and framelits at a 15% savings if you purchase the bundle.  The DSP you can get FREE with a $50 purchase of merchandise before shipping and taxes.

This is a really cool masculine card.  I love this set on page 12 SAB,  that you can get FREE with a $50 purchase.  I used the Back to Black DSP and embossed with white embossing powder and then colored the embossed Celebrate with Pool Party Blendabilities.  Hope you like it.

I used the Ray of Sunshine and Kinda Eclectic pages 159 and 164 (BC) respectively for this card.  I used Basic Black and Daffodil Delight.  Very easy card.
