What to do when you ….

… loose your creativity??  Well, I sit down to copy a card.  Have you seen this beauty from Sharon over at no time to stamp?  Beautiful.  So I re-created it using Stampin’ Up products.

This 1st card is the almost exact case.  

This card was me moving things around a little since I stamped the bird down to low to have the sentiment in the same place as Sharon’s card.
card measures 5.25 square.  Let me know if you like it.


Stamps: Always, Priceless, Best Yet (Hostess)

Paper: Riding Hood Red, Black, very vanilla

Ink: Black

Accessories:  new striped ribbon from the holiday mini, hodgepodge hardware, slot punch

Another Convention WOW swap

I am on my way to convention and I have a few treats pre-loaded in my blog to share.  The next few posts will be projects I am swapping or giving to team members.  

This is a card I made for Amy Celona’s Wow card swap at convention.   I changed up the swap card just a little from the one seen here in the photo.  On this card I used the fiskars threading water punch.  For the swap cards I used the new Stampin’ Up! Scallop edge punch.  And instead of punching the holes I used the white gel pen and doodled circles.

The clouds were made with a punch out from the scallop punch and some bashful blue ink and a sponge.  Sponge over the edge and keep moving the template around the page.


Stamps: Always

Paper: Whisper white, Chocolate Chip, bashful blue

Ink: Chocolate Chip, bashful blue, Old Olive

Accessories: Wide Chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon, slot punch, Fiskars scallop edge punch, scallop punch out for clouds and a sponge corner rounder 

Mothers Day

This was one of the designs included in my Make it for Mom Class.  There were several Mother’s Day cards that I used as part of the class…which means not everyone got the same design.  This card measures 6×3.


Stamps:  All Holidays, Always

Paper: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Soft Sky, soft sky designer Prints paper

Accessories:  Wide ribbon, white embossing powder
