Stampin’ Up! Bella & Friends Card Idea

I am so happy that I got this stamp set before it retired.  Bella & Friends is the cutest set that has the sweetest dog “Bella”.

This is a Z-Fold card and I used Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper along with Whisper White Cardstock, and Stitched Shapes Framelits.  I colored this cute bird with a variety of different Stampin’ Pads that I blended using a Blender Pen.

If you want this really cute stamp set and designer series paper, you better hurry because they will be retiring on June 3rd.  Don’t miss out, order yours today!

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!

Handmade Cards Are Beautiful

Handmade cards are beautiful but not all handmade cards are happy.

This card was difficult for me to make only because my God Mother just passed away and I needed to make a card to send to my God Father.

I ordered this stamp set Lasting Lily with coordinating framelits & ribbon during Sale-A-Bration.  This set is simple and beautiful for a Sympathy card.  Highland Heather and Old Olive ink was used along with Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock.

While I was making this handstamped card I was remembering all of the fun times growing up celebrating holidays and just hanging out on weekends with our families.  And recently I really enjoyed our phone conversations.  Aunt Dot will be missed but memories will last forever in our hearts.

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!

Hanging Garden Z-Fold Card

I love combining different stamps sets to create beautiful cards for all occasions.  This card was made to celebrate my Sister-In-Laws special 50th birthday.

I used many Stampin’ Up! stamp sets in creating this card, and what is so cool is that they all really enhance each other.

And this is a side view that shows that I added the flower pots on every fold of the card, and hanging the flower pots from the beams.

All of the supplies used for this card are listed below and you can find them all in the Annual Catalog, Occasions Catalog as well as the Sale-A-Bration brochure.

Just remember that Sale-A-Bration ends on March 31st, so if you have looked at the brochure and made a wish list, you better order today so you don’t miss out.

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!
