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!

Welcome Spring with Lovely Lattice Stamp Set

It’s officially spring and you know what that means?

You all get to read the Spring Poem that my mom taught me when I was a little girl.  I have recited this poem on the first day of spring for at least 50 years so I can’t stop now 🙂

Spring has sprung

The grass has riz

I wonder where the birdies is?

The birds are on the wing

The birds are on the wing?

My word

How absurd

I thought the wing was on the bird

Now that I have you all laughing I have to tell you something really important.

Sale-A-Bration is almost coming to an end.  So, if you have seen something that you want to get for FREE with your order of $50 or more, don’t wait too much longer.  So many of the items have already sold out.

This card was made with the Lovely Lattice stamp set that I picked as one of my free items.  It can be your too, so please don’t wait any longer because March 31 is next week and that’s when all this FREE goodness goes away.

Until next time my friends,

Enjoy the SUnshine!
