Birthday Card

Stampin’ Up We’ll Walrus Be Friends

August 12, 2019

I keep saying the name of this stamp set…and I get it, but then, I don’t know…
it’s kinda hard to say to get the pun!
But one thing I do know, the walruses are just so darn cute!

I did mask off the “hi” to make it flow with the “It’s your Birthday!”


Since I used my Stampin’ Blends to color the cuties, I cut out the inside one  and adhered it to  the inside since it would bleed onto the back of the card base if I had colored on the card base.

Stampin’ Up Beautiful Friendship Double Z-Fold Fun Fold

August 9, 2019

Here is another card I made at a Shoebox Swap a few weeks ago. It is called a Double Z-Fold Fun Fold Card.

My friend, Sarah Rigby, created a card for us at the Shoebox Swap that had variations of  stamping off and with more layers with Purple Posy cardstock. It is lovely.  I just simplified it a bit and used black as my Z-Fold to highlight the black ink on the sentiment. I loved the White Polka Dot tulle she used on her card.

You can see how to make one of these Double Z-Fold Fun Fold Cards on my Post HERE with the SU Bird Banter.

The Highland Heather cardstock is 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side

The Basic Black folded section is 3-1/4″ x 10″ scored at 2- 3/4″ and 5-1/2″

The Whisper White panels are 2-1/2″ x 3 (x2) and 3″ x 4-1/4″

Stampin’ Up Band Together in Pink and Green

June 28, 2019

Happy Friday to you, friends! I have a pretty pink and green card for you today using
the Stampin’ Up Band Together Bundle.

If you have perused through the catalog as many times as I imagine you have…
you would have seen the card designs on p. 121 where I got my inspiration.

I love all three cards they presented as samples!

I used Flirty Flamingo and Mint Macaron on this card instead of the Soft Seafoam I was going to use. While I was traveling on the train to Pittsburgh last month, I had worked on some cards so I took my Soft Seafoam and Highland Heather ink pads with me. Somehow, I managed to forget them so no creations since then using those colors- can’t wait to get back and see where I left them!!! Though, in the end, I am thinking that the darker Mint plays better with the Flirty Flamingo than the softer color of Seafoam would have so… it worked out:)

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

Don’t forget Stampin’ Up added some new things to the Clearance Rack.

Stampin’ Up Piece of Cake Bundle

May 10, 2019

I was so happy when this Stampin’ Up Piece of Cake Bundle came back after backorder issues,
and that it is staying in the new catalog!

It has awesome cake images for birthday and weddings with some cute sentiments.

The How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper is so festive-
perfect for any stamp set with candy, cupcakes, and other goodies!
It’s retiring…so pick it up now:)

I have a weakness for Birthday cake with Buttercream icing although this one has fondant on it!

I left a nice wide border on the card base to showcase both
the Coastal Cabana and the Gorgeous Grape card stock.
The Gorgeous Grape panel is 3-3/4″ x 5″ and the two DSPs are 3-1/2″ x 2-1/2″.
