Crafty Turnabout Birthday

I have a coworker that routinely requests special cards for people. I love making them because she always gives me ideas of the recipient’s likes and hobbies. (And it doesn’t hurt that she always so graciously says she loves my cards.) This card is for a fellow Stampin’ Up Demonstrator, so we decided to go the crafty route. I really wanted to use the Concord & 9th Crafty Turnabout stamp set and coordinating dies. I used a Turnabout stamp once before. You can see that blog post here. It is so neat how you ink it up and stamp it 4 times, turning it between each color. You can learn more about them here. We decided we would trick her by using non-SU stamps and dies on the front. I hope she likes it!

Irresistible Baby Feet

Oh my! Is there anything sweeter than tiny, irresistible baby feet? Especially those tiny heels? OMGoodness! I love baby heels so stinkin’ much! Ok…back on track… I love the effect of color resist and the retired Irresistibly Yours paper has designs pre-embossed and ready for color. This was a Sale-a-Bration item in 2015 and it has sheets embossed with 6 different patterns. I love little stars for little boys, so it was a no-brainer. I thoroughly enjoyed making this card and I hope the recipients liked it!

Daisies by the Bay

Over and over I tell myself that I don’t need any more flower sets. But the new Daisy Lane stamp set kept calling my name. And for there to be two Daisy punches now just takes the cake! No…don’t get it!  But it’s so pretty! No…you don’t need more flowers! But there are TWO punches that match! Ugh. Yes. You know me too well. I am the happy owner of the Daisy Lane set as well as the punches and I have no regrets.

Daisies by the Bay
I have 6 awesome ladies that join me for stamping fun 7 times throughout the year (my stamp club) and I just knew we would be stamping daisies! The flowers are each stamped twice and punched out. Before gluing the two layers together, we used the Bone Folder to curl each petal downwards. The flowers are popped up on Dimensionals to keep the curl from going flat. Such a neat touch!

Not a Team Player Today!

So I actually AM a team player, but had to title today’s card this. Why? Because both the front and inside sentiments are actually only half of the stamps. I made this card for my boss’ Birthday, but not in time to take it to work for the rest of the department to sign. So, had to leave that part off. Then, when deciding on the inside sentiment, I chose to use only part of that as well. It was super easy – I just placed a sticky note over the part I didn’t want to show up. Inked it up, removed the sticky note, and voila! Below the card photos are the complete stamp sets. I just love these! I can’t stand how stinkin’ cute the office chair is. Ok. I’ll admit it. I wanted the set just for that one stamp. And check out the sentiments in Here’s a Card. Some of them are downright hilarious! Definitely my kind of stamp sets. And if you look closely, the Night of Navy cardstock layer is embossed with the Subtle 3D folder to emulate the fabric on a real chair. Details Details!
