Birthday Memories Suite

I was so excited when this set came in the mail!

At Onstage, they did such great things with it! The images are so cute, bright, and fun. I couldn't wait to play with it! So when it came, I looked at it and was so intimidated! I set it aside for 4 weeks before I could get the courage up to use it!

Well, last night I finally broke down and forced myself to create! I'm so glad I did! Here are some of the cards I made.

This first one uses the DSP paper. The only stamping is the banner. That was a little strange for me but the images are so cute that it makes a darling card. I popped up the banner and used one of the honeycomb balloons on it.

The next one uses the DSP images too.

Isn't she the sweetest! I used the ovals dies to cut out the cupcake frame and then her from the middle of it. I wish they had this stamp in the set. However, they do have one that uses the same die cut as she does.

So, as you can see, I think this is another winner set! Here are a couple more I made and I haven't even used the fox or cake stamp yet!

Aren't those gimmer dots amazing!

These products will be available in a few days (June 1) so if you are interested in any of them, let me know. Thanks for stopping!

Bring on the Snow!

  • Ok, don't. We just got rid of it and spring is finally here (I think!). But I couldn't resist scrapping these pictures when I saw the new product from Stampin Up! I knew they would be a perfect fit!

I just love the different snowflake dies.

And the cards from the set are just perfect!

I can't wait to use more of the products! But I can wait for more snow! Love, love, love the colors and the bundle. So many possibilities! Thanks for stopping by!

I have been having fun watercoloring in between trying to clear out old stamping product and homeschool books. I can only sort through stuff for so long and then need a little creative break! Here is a card I came up with.

This was so fun to make! It is my first attempt at this kind of card. I need to practice some more and my mind is already coming up with different scenes to try. Just wanted to share this one.

Thanks for stopping by.

New In-Colors

I finally got a chance to play with all of Stampin Up's new in colors. Wow! They are all great! And the new DSP Fresh Florals is beautiful.

The first on is Berry Burst! It's a yummy berry color and is beautiful. I used the retiring doilies and the Colorful Seasons stamp set for the sentiment and flowers.

The next is Powder Pink and is a soft pink. I used the Lovely Laurels thinlits  in this one. There are some really neat things you can do with these. I will share it in another post.

This one is Tranquil Tide. I love this color! I inked the edges with Soft Suede and Early Expesso to give it an antiquey look. I used the new copper trim and copper foil paper with the thinlit from Seasonal Layer thinlits.

Fresh Fig is the next up. Love the rich color! Looking forward to using this one again. Used the Detailed Floral thinlits here and fussy cut the flower from the DSP.

Last in Lemon Lime Twist! As I said earlier. I thought this would be my least favorite but I really like it. A very fun color!

Hope you enjoyed the peek at these new colors! Thanks for stopping!
