Udderly Fantastic JoAnn

Today’s card will deviate from the fall/winter cards most people post during this time of the year. My sweet friend, JoAnn, is a huge cow fanatic…anything and everything that looks like, or even appears to look like, cows make her giggle with happiness. The woman even has a MOO-ing ringtone on her phone! She’s quite a lively, fun person and you can’t help but to laugh when you’re with her. I had no choice but to make her a cow Birthday card…and this stamp just screams happy, bright colors. I added a little bit of the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint on the daisy for some dimension and some Wink of Stella to the leaves and rain boots. Hilarious!

Fashionably Late Birthday Card

Let’s admit it. We’ve all done it. We’ve all had a moment where we realized that someone’s Birthday just happened and we forgot about it. Just because you forgot to give a card by their Birthday doesn’t mean you can’t send them belated well-wishes. This card is fun to color and I added Wink of Stella for a glittery effect that will still make them smile…even if it is a day or three late.

Wink To My Person

As soon as I laid my eyes upon the beautiful, new Modern Heart set on page 51 of the Annual Catalog, I knew I had to have it. The sentiment “You’re My Person” is totally something I would tell the special someone I was thinking of when I bought this set. I stamped the heart in Memento Tuxedo Black so I could color it with a rainbow of Stampin’ Blends. After coloring it in, I covered it in sparkly Wink of Stella. The Stitched Shapes square die I cut it out with is a great little touch and the bright Bermuda Bay Designer Series Paper and Mini Striped Ribbon are the perfect amount of boldness. I added the sequins knowing my person doesn’t really care for sequins all that much, but I liked them being white so they would take backstage to the heart. The inside sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and I added a ½” strip of the DSP along the bottom. The card base is 4 ¼” square and is the perfect size for this fun heart. I think my person will like it!

Layers of Kitty Hellos

Aren’t these kitties just too cute? It’s one of those stamp sets I rarely turn to. Why? I have no idea. These kitties make me smile. I used some retired (ret) Designer Series Paper that I was hoarding and the card came together quite quickly. I couldn’t decide which color I liked best for the kitties, so I tried out a few options. I’m leaning towards the gray, but would’ve liked it a little lighter. You can’t see it in the photo, but all the flowers have Wink of Stella on them. The shimmer is so pretty in real life. Next time I feel like coloring, I will dust off the coordinating set Bella & Friends and color in some cute puppies!

Daffodil Delight Sympathy

It’s never enjoyable when you need a sympathy card. And, unfortunately, it’s been very difficult these past couple weeks as I’ve lost one family member and two church family members, along with a friend who also lost a close family member. I’ve had several cards to make, including this one that I made for my mother. She loves yellow and I thought this would bring a little love in her mailbox.

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!

Sweet Cupcake Easel Card for the JOS Hop

january banner
It’s time for another The Joy of Sets Blog Hop and I’m betting you’ve hopped over here from Andrea Parr. If not, then let me tell you that this month’s theme is to make an Easel Card with something you’ve received free. I’ve chosen a Sale-a-Bration stamp set called Hello Cupcake. It is just darling. I wanted to keep with the #simplestamping theme that Stampin’ Up is promoting, so I chose to keep the embellishments to one item…sequins! I am in love with the adhesive-backed sequins. So easy – just peel off the backing and pop those little iridescent lovelies all over! Be sure to head on over to Maria Vanderform’s blog post next!
