Hello, Happy over the Hump Day!
Today I have two super easy, super cute birthday cards for you.

And the Big Shot die cutting is so simple, too.

Stampin’ Up Best Catch with High Tide

February 25, 2019

Time for a masculine card, don’t you think?
So, I pulled out my Stampin’ Up Best Catch Bundle.

I used the water, sand, and sea grass images from the High Tide stamp set to create a scene for the fly fisherman. I used my Stampin’ Blends to color the basket, fisherman, and the fish.

It’s hard to distinguish the card base color in the photo but it is Blackberry Bliss.
It looks great with the Soft Suede Basket Weave embossed panel.

I used the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set to finish off the inside along with the fishing lure.

Stampin’ Up Piece of Cake Bundle

February 22, 2019

Here is a fun card using the new Mango Melody cardstock embossed
with the Striped Scallop Embossing Folder.

I used the Stampin’ Up Piece of Cake stamp set bundled with the Cake Builder Punch. I used Poppy Parade as the card base with some Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green thrown in.  I  stamped and cut out with the balloons with the Broadway Birthday Bundle.

Stampin’ Up Humming Along Bundle – Heat Emboss in any Color with a Stamparatus Video Tutorial

February 20, 2019

It happens every catalog…I see a bundle…pass it over…then, say…
hmmm, I am going to  take a second look at it…

And, by golly, I LOVE it!! The Stampin’ Up Humming Along Bundle is just fabulous!
Look at that huge bloom and that lovely hummingbird.

I even made it stand out more on my card by heat embossing it in black.
Watch my video to see how I did it with Memento, Versamark, and my handy Stamparatus…

*Thank you to Carol for her reminder of SU carrying black embossing powder item #146956…I was actually thinking how we did not carry Black Craft Ink anymore that we could emboss with clear and get no strays!!!! I loved this technique because we could use CLEAR instead of BLACK embossing powder because it is neater:)

Notice that die cut negative in the middle of the birthday card? Isn’t that cool?
I can’t wait to use the blue die cut that came out on some other card.

Whisper White Thick Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on 11″ side, 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ for images, 3/4″ x 4″ strip on bottom
Basic Black panel: 4″ x 5-1/4″, 2-1/2″ x 3″for sentiment label
Balmy Blue panel: 3-3/4″ x 5″

Stampin’ Up Piece of Cake

February 18, 2019

I know Stampin’ Up has the order button is turned off…
but I want you to be super excited when it gets here!

It’s a GREAT stamp set called Piece of Cake that is bundled with the new Cake Builder Punch.

The Lace embossing folder and the 7 layers of alternating White and Smoky Slate
really create an elegant card, don’t you think?
