Back On Your Feet Trio – Card 1

Who doesn’t love a sweet card when you’re feeling down, under the weather, or have an owie? The Back On Your Feet stamp set on page 83 of the Annual Catalog fits almost any situation. There’s a tied up giraffe, hurt sloth and upside down turtle. I’ll be sharing cards made with the sloth and turtle in the next two days, but for now, here’s the poor little giraffe. He’s stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Stampin’ Blends. I thought it would be cute to add the braided linen trim to correlate to the knot. It’s difficult to see in the photo, but I also used the Subtle Embossing Folder on the black layer. Just look at that face – so sad! This could definitely cheer someone up!

Classic Class of 2019

I was commissioned to make a card for a college graduate. Back when my middle child graduated High School, Stampin’ Up! offered a “Class of 2015” stamp. Obviously after using it for that occasion, it started collecting dust. I spied it and thought, “Hey! I should cut the stamp apart!” And that is what I did. I finally thought outside the box. I also decided to use gold foil for the year and I think it is a great fit with this card. I used a little-known die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits collection that cuts a series of small circles. Using this on the gold foil paper made the circles look like metal brads and I just love the effect! The Take Your Pick Tool was a lifesaver in picking up those little circles and placing them on the glue dots.

Zoey is Koalafied to Party!

Back in January, my niece and her family were able to visit for a couple days as they traversed the country during a move from a hilly state to a mountainous state. My great niece, Zoey, had me read a book to her several times while visiting me. The main character in the book was a big-eyed owl. I had every intention of making her an owl card. That is, until I got Lawn Fawn’s Party Koala. And it’s so stinkin’ cute!

So Hoppy for Sale-a-Bration!

I am always excited about Sale-a-Bration time and that has not waned in 2019! Look at this adorable frog! So stinkin’ cute! He’s part of a stamp set called So Hoppy Together and the set can be earned for FREE with a minimum order of $50 (before tax and shipping). But wait…there’s more! I used another item you can choose from out of the brochure. The green and black striped Designer Series Paper is from the Botanical Butterflies collection that is also a Sale-a-Bration item.  The package contains 12 sheets of double sided 12” x 12” paper that has colored images on one side and black and white on the other. Love it when I can use my Stampin’ Blends and color it exactly to match my card! I decided to use the new Gingham Gala Sequins in Grapefruit Grove to give it a pop of color.  I really had a ton of fun with this Birthday card!

Birthday Dream Catcher Memories

I was so excited when I discovered this Dream Catcher bundle in the Annual Catalog this year. I always had a Dream Catcher above each of my children’s beds, and mine, from the time they were born. It comforted them many times when they had a hard time falling asleep at night. They are all grown up now, but their Dream Catchers are still in each of their bedrooms. And mine, too.

Retiring Painted With Love Suite

I am sad that the Painted With Love suite on pages 18-19 of the Occasions Catalog will be retiring on May 31st. It’s so cheerful and colorful…and can easily be used any time and not just during Valentine’s Day. I made this for a special someone and it came together just how I planned it in my head. The pop of gold hearts on the Specialty Designer Series Paper are accented perfectly with the random heart die cuts. I am very pleased with this one!

Lots of Fizzy Love

Are these boxes not adorable? They were a breeze to put together using the Lots to Love Box Framelits dies on page 19 of the 2018 Occasions catalog.  The sentiment on the banner is from the coordinating stamp set Sure Do Love You. Both of them are part of the Painted With Love suite on pages 18 and 19 and can be purchased as a bundle together to save you 10%, too! I decided to use the fun Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-Bration brochure. It’s free with a minimum purchase of $50.00. The double bow gives it a whimsical feel. I need to use that Bow Builder Punch a lot more!
