Now and Forever *

Friday!  Yes!

I am off work today to attend my cousin's wedding.  Of course I have to make them a card, but I did not get a chance to do it last night so I had to come up with something quick this morning.  I looked through my stash and thought I would use some of my old Making Memories rub-ons along with an SU punch to make this quick, but very cute wedding card.  Also, since I'm sure the happy couple will be getting many cards with images of brides and grooms, cakes, hearts, etc... I thought I would create one that is less cliché.

Have a great weekend!

Ghoulish Greetings Wednesday

Happy Hump Day!

Over the weekend I made a card for the MFT Weekly Stamp Club Challenge.  I really liked the layout so I made a Stampin Up version of the card using two of the new holiday stamp sets (Freaky Friends #135158 & Ghoulish Greetings #136664).

I also used the new designer series paper Motley Monsters #135819 - I love this paper, it is so cute for halloween & little boy pages/cards.

Okay, here you go... I'm off to work now...

MFT Weekly Stamp Club Challenge

Hello All,

Today I am posting a card that I made for the MFT Sketch Challenge.  I haven't participated in one for a while, but I decided to enter the challenge this week.  I really like the colors on this card and can see repeating this card in the future.

Supplies:  MFT Watercolor Backdrop & Art Expressions Text Stamps, MFT Paintbrush die set, Stampin UP ink & cardstock.

Check back on my blog on Wednesday and I will post another version of this card using all SU materials.

Have a great week!

Oldie but Goodie


I love this retired paper from SU - Kaleidoscope.  When it came out, I purchased several packs for a stamp camp that I hosted and since I had about a half of pack left, I thought I would make some cards to give away as gifts from the remainder.  I paired the paper up with a current stamp set - which is really my favorite (Fabulous Four #134174) and I really like how these came out.  This could be a very masculine card if you use masculine colors as I did in one of the samples below.

I am on a mission to use all of my patterned paper that has retired. Truthfully, it's been kind of hard since I really love all the new stuff, but I figure I can make the same style of cards with different PP to use with gift card packs.

Here they go...

Celebrate You !


So I just got back from the SU Convention a week ago, and am totally re-inspired to create and more importantly SHARE my creativity with friends and family.  I am planning a Stamp Camp for sometime in August and have 3 themes to plan for: (1) Clean and Simple Cards and (2) Project Life by SU and (3) Holiday Stamp Camp.

Here is a very simple yet cute and clean card using our new Washi Tape.  I can see this being a bit hit with my customers as this is a 5 minute card (at most)  I can see everyone whipping these up in a flash when they need it.  It also stars my favorite word sentiment stamp at the moment - Fabulous Four (item #134174).

Here it is:

Supplies Used:
Whisper White CS #100730
Strawberry Slush CS #131295
Beach House Washi Tape #133689
Silver Glimmer Paper #135314
Itty Bitty Accents Punch Star  #133787

Have a great Sunday!
