Fortunate Break To Go

I’ve been so focused on all the fun new products in the 2018 Occasions catalog that I feel like I’m neglecting all the awesome products I have from the 2017-2018 Annual catalog. I’ve had this adorable set for a while but hadn’t inked it up yet. I thought it would be fun to color it with the Stampin’ Blends…and it was! The Wink of Stella on the heart on the take-out box gives it the perfect touch of dazzle and the little enamel heart is too cute!

Happy Early Caffeine Burst

A friend’s Birthday is right around the corner and I felt the Coffee Cups framelits would be perfect for her. I’ve been using up a lot of my Designer Series Paper lately in my efforts to #cutitdonthoardit, but I was really keeping a tight grip on this particular sheet of coffee rings. I just love it as the background and I’m so glad I used it, along with some Color Theory DSP for the cup. There’s a lot of dimension going on here, as I popped up the Crumb Cake oval, the cup, the sleeve and the lid. I think it allows the thickness of the Bitty Bow to fit in quite well. The Magnetic Platform is a dream come true, cutting out the shapes without the dies moving on me. I hope my friend likes her card as much as I enjoyed making it!

P.S. Big thanks to Hunter for telling me to put the ribbon behind the oval. I struggled a little with that placement!

To My Amazing Son

I had a wonderful time visiting my son this past Memorial weekend. He left the base and stayed with his sister and me at our hotel. It was a much needed vacation for all of us and it went by way too fast. I love to sneak a card into his suitcase any time he visits and I completely forgot to make him a card before his sister and I hit the road for the 14 hour trip. I know he’ll still appreciate it, though. By the time this blog post is published, he should have already received it.

To My Amazing Son

I made a fun Z-fold card and decided to rough up the edges a little.  Even though I have lots of awesome new products, these work together quite nicely for a classic masculine card.

Wisteria Weather and Reminiscing

We’ve been getting hit with so much rain today, that I thought it would be the perfect time to use my Weather Together set with the matching dies. I just love thunderstorms. I remember when the children were itty bitties and scared of the thunder. I would take them outside onto the porch, all of them trying to sit on my lap, and we’d sit there in silence together…watching the lightning and listening to thunder. Bittersweet memories…

Flourish Note

I have a friend that appears to be going through a tough time right now. I don’t know any specifics, nor do I need to. I just need to let her know she’s in my thoughts and prayers. I decided to CASE a previous card I had made (you can see it HERE). I decided against having a splatter background.  I wanted to keep it CAS (Clean and Simple).  I just love the sparkle of the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper and the random Rhinestones.  I’m sure my friend will appreciate it. Hugs to you!

Soft Sympathy

I debated on whether I should share today’s card with you, as it does include non-Stampin’ Up! items. I finally decided I would, though, because I do occasionally use other products.  I know you won’t be mad at me, right? This sympathy card is nicely balanced with clean lines and soft colors and makes a beautifully simple sympathy card.
