Birthdays in January

Every New Year brings lots of birthdays to celebrate, mine included.  I think that I have 7 family and friends celebrating their birthdays this month.  :)  One of my New Year's resolutions was to make cards and send them out.  Below are a couple of birthday themed cards that I have created.  Some of my first card creations for 2014.


You will see that the colour schemes are the same (Very Vanilla card stock, Bermuda Bay card stock, Crisp Cantaloupe card stock).  There are also some differences, the top card has not been textured embossed and the bottom card has.  The top card has an extra set of card stock strips and the bottom card does not.  I guess you could say that the bottom has the "Step it Up" technique, using the same layout but stepping it up a notch (for example embossing).



Stampin' Up! supplies used:
Stamp set:  Wacky Wishes (Hostess - retired), Create a Cupcake
Paper: Very Vanilla card stock, Bermuda Bay card stock, Crisp Cantaloupe card stock
Ink: Bermuda Bay Stampin' Write Marker, Crisp Cantaloupe Stampin' Write Marker, Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Marker, Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker
Accessories:  Big Shot Die Cut Machine, Apothecary Accents Frame Lits, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Perfect Polka-Dots Embossing Folder (Bottom card only), Rhinestone Jewel, Cupcake Builder Punch

Happy Stamping!

Happy New Year!


I hope all of you enjoyed your Holiday Season and rang in the New Year in a memorable way!  Wishing you all the best for 2014.  I was a little late getting a start on my Christmas cards so at the last minute I ended up making some Happy New Year cards.  The above card is what I made.  I always have fun with the embossing technique.  Whether it is using an embossing folder with the Big Shot or heat embossing with Embossing Powder, the results always make me smile.

What is your New Year's Resolution?  I would love to hear about it.  Please feel free to post in on my stamping blog.  I have a couple this year!  One of them is to send more cards out.  :)  I always start good and then end up forgetting or not sending them.  Especially masculine type cards.  So my Stamping New Years resolution is to send more cards to people to help brighten their day.  Which means posting more of my creations on my stamping blog which then in turn hopefully inspires you.

Stampin' Up! Supplies:

Stamp sets:  Wacky Wishes (Hostess - retired), Happy Hour
Paper: Whisper White card stock, Brushed Silver card stock
Ink: VersaMark Pad
Accessories: Big Shot Die Cut Machine, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Scallop Edge Punch, Apothecary Accents Frame Lits, Silver Brads, Paper Piercer

Happy Stamping!

October Christmas Card Stamp Camp - Rescheduled to November 17, 2013

Happy Thanksgiving Monday!  I hope you have enjoyed some time with your family and friends for a big turkey feast this Thanksgiving weekend.  :)

My next Christmas Card Stamp Camp is on Sunday, November 17, 2013.  Below are 2 of the 3 cards we will be making.  I hope you are able to join me for some Christmas card stamping fun.  At this Stamp Camp we are going to make 8 Christmas cards (4 each of 2 different designs shown below) as well as 4 Occasion cards for a total of 12 cards.  For the month of November the Occasion card will be a card of your choice.  I know a couple of people celebrating birthdays in November so I thought it might be fitting to also make birthday cards along with the Christmas cards.  If you have another occasion that you would like to make a card for, please feel free to do so.  I will have the card layout and all of the supplies ready for you to make but you can choose what occasion you want it to be.  :)  I will try and post the 3rd card designer (Occasion Card) over the next couple of days.
