CYCI12 In Colors 2012-2014

Hello crafty friends,

The CYCI12 challenge is to use the 2012-2014 Stampin' Up! In Colors.  I always need birthday cards on hand and had yet to use my Six-Sided Sampler Stamp Set so it was a perfect fit for me to be able to design a card for the challenge that could incorporate all 5 In Colors: Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Midnight Muse and Summer Startfruit.

For this card, I used the following Stampin' Up! Products:

Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple and Whisper White Cardstock
Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals and Summer Starfruit Ink Pads
Birthday Greetings from Wetlands Stamp Set
Flower from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack
Thread Linen
Jewels Basic Rhinestone
Large Oval Punch
Scallop Oval Punch
Stampin' Pierce Mat
Paper Piercing Tool
Stampin' Dimensionals
Mini Glue Dots 
Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (2014 Sale-a-bration).

Enjoy and good luck at the challenge.  Head on over to to enter your card!

Stampin' Up! Live Stamping Event - 3/26/2014

Happy Friday!

I've been on vacation all week and can hardly believe it's Friday already!  On Wednesday, Stampin' Up! held several live YouTube Stamping Events.  I watched two of them live, starting at 4:30 Pacific time.  It inspired me to create some cute gift packaging and cards using the Tag-a-Bag Gift Bag and Tag-a-Box bundles, as well as some of my Sale-a-bration products. 

During the 10:00 airing I won a prize, the Good As Gold Sale-a-bration Card Kit!  My upline, Heidi Boos won one as well (

Here are the items I made:

Here are the prize winners!
Here's the live stamping event (my name is at approximately 29 minutes in):
Have a great weekend and create something!  Speaking of Sale-a-bration, it's almost over!  Contact me at by March 30th if you'd like to place an order.

Pokemon Card In A Box Birthday


This past weekend was my daughter's birthday and she loves Pokemon (that was the party theme), so I had to make this card.  I found a download online, printed it on Whisper White cardstock, and then  proceeded to cut all (9) images by hand.

Have a great day!

CYCI11 Think Spring!

Wow, it's Spring and I could not be happier!  This is my first card design for Can You Case It?, and I am so honored to be in such talented company.

I'm happy about Spring and celebrating life, but have to admit I am getting nostalgic about Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration being almost over.  So I had to make my Spring card using some wonderful Sale-a-bration items (free with $50.00 purchase through March 31st).

For today's card I used the following Stampin' Up! Products:

Hardwood Stamp Set
Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral Cardstock
Calypso Coral and Soft Suede Ink Pads
Hooray for Parties Digital Ensemble
Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack, Summer Starfruit twine and cork flower
Ticket Duo Punch
Banner Punch

Happy Casing and Happy Spring!

Look Who Is Helping Me Sort Stampin' Up! Orders!

Happy Sunday my crafty friends,

Didn't today just fly by losing that hour?  Why do they do that on a weekend?  Anyway, yesterday I was sorting my Stamp Club orders with a little help from my baby (she's 14 years old) Bella.  What a silly girl!  Oh, and Jasper had to check out what she was doing.

Have a good one!

February Stamp Club Fun!

Last night we had our February Stamp Club meeting and we made 3 cards, one for St. Patrick's Day using Punch Art, Dry Embossing and Paper-Piercing, and two birthday cards.  One using the Starburst technique and the other some heat embossing in gold.

We had a wonderful time.  These ladies are fun!

Have a great rest of the weekend friends,
