50th Birthday!

Today we celebrate another of my husband’s siblings turning 50. Five of the six have entered the fifty club now. I love Stampin Up’s Number of Years stamp set as it’s fun to be able to put the actual number on the card…unless it’s your own. Ha! I layered the numbers for more depth and adhered those and the banners with foam tape.

Pool Party is one of my go-to colors. It goes great with last years’ dsp. The embossing folder is from Cuttle Bug.

Thank you for stopping by…have a great day!


Peekaboo Birds

The Best Birds bundle of stamps and coordinating dies from Stampin’ Up came out in June. It’s been on my wishlist since then and I finally ordered it. So looking forward to using this set! (Pg 53 in the annual catalog #142315)

The bird was colored with Crumb Cake and the branch with Soft Suade and Wild Wasabi. The dsp is from the Cupcakes and Carousels 6×6 stack in the new occasions catalog. The circle is a Stitched Framelets die. Love the Peekaboo Peach In-Color.


Sending Love

Stampin’ Up came out with a fun new Valentine stamp set “Sending Love” which is packed with lots of heart images and sentiments. The thinlet die set comes with hearts, arrows and envelopes…wow! I love Valentine’s Day and to me it’s a day of celebrating friendship. Looking forward to making more cards with this set for years!


This next card was made with the Bloomin’ Heart thinlet…in red velvet! The stamps used are from Sending Love. This thinlet cut right through the felt and came out real clean. Didn’t even use wax paper. The Seaside embossing folder gave just enough texture without being too busy. The ink and cardstock are in Pool Party. ¬†Thank you for stopping by!¬†img_0668


Hey Chick!

Each year Stampin’ Up has a Sale-a-Bration sale where you can choose an item from a special list of free products for every $50 you spend. They came out with this fun “Hey, Chic” set and I just love it!

I found the chicken wire stamp from Deep Red and the chicken wire embossing folder is by Cuttlebug.

The chick with the crazy hair might be my favorite. My grandmother’s neighbor had banty hens…each had a unique personality. They were fun to watch as a kid.
