Stampin Up Happy Anniversary – Wildflower Fields

Just a quick card for today! I needed a quick anniversary card and I love the Number of Years stamp set as a go to! I also love the Wildflower Fields stamp set which you can get free for Sale-A-Bration with a $50 purchase! For my inspiration for this card, I used this card by Craft-somnia Momma. Again, I found it on Pinterest!

I used our watercolor paper for the background and just used an aqua painter dipped in Calypso Coral and drew lines across. I didn’t care if they were straight or not since that’s the beauty of it! I also used Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry ink pads. Aren’t those little wire bows darling? I finished it off with some cute accessories like the Metallic Sequins and the Tea Lace Paper Doilies.

You’ll notice below my new format for the products I used. It’s a “shopping list”. I had to switch to this since My Stampin Blog is now charging users $9.95 per MONTH. That’s just not feasible for me right now so I decided to just jot down the list of products, item #’s and their price for you. You can then click and print, save to your computer, mobile device, etc.

Also, since it is so small, I’ll try to list only the stamps and the accessories on it so I can use a bigger font. Otherwise the more items I put on there, the smaller it has to be. Hope this helps some of you!

Mojo Monday #435 – It’s My Party Birthday Card

Hi Everyone!

A new week has gone and that means it’s time for another Mojo Monday sketch challenge!

Julee over at Mojo created a fun panel sketch for us to play with. You should play along too and use up some of your stash! 😉 If you haven’t played in challenges before and you’re not sure what to do, just send me an email and I’ll help you through it! They are fun and sometimes there’s even a contest to win prizes! 🙂

I used the It’s My Party design paper stack for this card. This paper pad is such a great deal! You get 48 – 12″x 12″ sheets of design paper for $26.00. That’s only $0.54/sheet! You need this paper, it’s so cute and has some great designs! Plus there is a whole slough of It’s My Party products to coordinate with this lovely paper.

I made this card for my awesome husband. He’ll only be 33 in a couple weeks! (wish I was still in my 30’s!) Maybe then I’d have enough energy to chase my toddlers around lol!

I used the Party with Cake clear mount stamp set for this card and the Number of Years bundle (has stamp set and framelits!). The panels of design paper are cut at 2″ x 4″. The center Mint Macaron square is 3-1/4″ x 3-1/2″. The Whisper White square is 3″ x 3-1/4″.  I also used a hint of the  clear Wink of Stella on the numbers, can you see the shimmer below? I just LOVE this stuff!

The ink pads I used for stamping:

  • Basic Black Archival
  • Melon Mambo
  • Mint Macaron
  • Crushed Curry

Paper Craft Crew Challenge PCCCS181 – Number of Years & Valentine’s Day

Hi Everyone!

So I’m finally participating in the challenge over at the Paper Craft Crew!  Pam, aren’t you proud of me?? My hope is to be a regular participant! Pam Staples and I go way back…well back to 2011, where we first met. We were roomies for my first Stampin’ Up! Convention year, which was such a great one. (had a little drama at the house we rented from another roommate, but we all survived! ha!)  Overall it was a great experience! That’s what I’ll always remember. We’ve been Facebook friends ever since! 🙂

This was such a cute sketch that we had to play with. I had to make an Anniversary card for my sweet friend Dixie, who’s been married 33 years today! She is the sweetest little lady and makes beautiful hand-knit items. If you need a special hand-knit gift, she’s your lady! Check out her site HERE. (I’m working on her website – trying to make it better, still in the works!)

I love this stamp set Number of Years and the matching Large Number framelits. Even though my framelits are on backorder and still in the mail! You can’t really tell I “fussy” cut the 3’s can you?? Ugh, such a pain lol. I’ll be making more birthday and anniversary cards when I get the framelits! 😉 I just love this color combo though…and thanks for the great sketch Pam!

Happy Valentine’s Day too! It’s funny how the dynamics of a relationship change. Now instead of a quiet, romantic dinner for two, it ended up being a loud, fast paced spaghetti dinner for 4! It was great and fun spending the time with my loves…just not your typical V-day dinner. Even though we had a cartoon on in the car on the way, my son still fell asleep! (He’d gone all day without a nap) So when we got there my husband carried him in and he was a little cranky. He perked up though, especially after the offer of a little Sprite.

And of course I had to include a picture of THIS face….and a little selfie action. Not sure why my husband didn’t get the wear pink or red memo…

 

 

Thanks for stopping by! And Happy Valentine’s Day!

Here’s what I used to make my card:

Minnie Mouse Turning One Card -Number of Years & Large Framelits

I made this sweet Minnie Mouse birthday card for my friends daughter that just turned one. They LOVE Disney! Our circle punches are perfect for making any size Minnie or Mickey!

I used the Number of Years stamp set from the Occasions catalog. Finally a good sized, easy to use number set. 🙂 The framelits match and if you purchase as a bundle you save 15%! (Just like Geico! Lol)…but everyone knows that. 😉

The design paper is retired but I needed something with polka dots and this Halloween paper from last year was perfect! (Happy Haunting)

I made the bow with the mini heart punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and finished it with a pearl. I love how simple and sweet this card is!

Here are the products I used to make it:
