Make A Wish Birthday Card !

Hey Stampers,

I know - a post 2 days in a row !! Who knew !! The card I am sharing with you today is a quick and simple one I made with my Club Girls. One of my fav stamp sets in the Occasions Catalogue is the Perfect Pennant set. It is SO versatile, and has some prat all around images. I paired it with the Birthday Basics DSO for this card. I am so going to miss all of the retiring 2012-2014 In Colors, aren’t you ?? Take a look at this cute card !!

Isn’t that fun ? I love the birthday candle DSP. So cute ! And there is nothing that the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch doesn’t make better, am I right ?? Love how this card came together - this design could be changed up with all kinds of different stamps, DSP and embossing folders. Love it ! 

Thats it for me today. And its almost the end of the month - make sure you head over to Catherine and Cathy Create to enter our monthly challenges to win a prize !! Our prize for this month is the Filmstrip stamp - which is not retired AND out of stock !! Awesome !! Have a great day and Happy Stamping !!

Grungy Take Care Tree

Hey Stampers,

I don’t know about you, but to me there is NOTHING as inspiring as a visit to Pinterest. There is an endless supply of amazing projects to fire up your creative juices ! On a browse a few days ago, I came across an awesome card by Cindy Lee. She paired the awesome Gorgeous Grunge set (one of my top stamp sets for sure) with the soon to retire Take Care set. Her card was made in September, so hers was a Fall version. It was so cute !! I decided to spin it into a Spring version - and LOVE how it turned out !! Take a peek !!

Is that not SO cool !?! I am so in love with all the great splatters in the Gorgeous Grunge set. And I two toned them in Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi here to give some more dimension. And the Itty Bitty Punch Pack (RETIRING - saw it isn’t so !!!) added the cute flowers. I don’t know what I’m going to do without those punches !! So if you need them, get them FAST before they are gone forever !! 

Well thats it for me today - going to enjoy my Sunday with my 2 fav men ! And maybe even get in some crafting - yay ! Thanks so much for dropping by today and Happy Stamping !!

Undefined Minnie Mouse

Hey Stampers,

In case you are not aware - I am a Disney Fanatic. If you have been coming here for a while, you can probably remember me mentioning at least one trip to Disney World every year (usually two). So when Stampin’ Up! came out with the amazing Undefined Stamp Carving Kit, I KNEW it was finally my chance to get some Disney stamps !! But, even thought I bought this kit months ago, I didn’t get a chance to use it until today. AND I AM HOOKED !! I did 2 simple stamps, a Mickey and a Minnie. Take a look !!

I am so happy with how this Minnie turned out !! I stamped her onto the Polka Dot Parade DSP (that is sadly retiring) and cut out her cute bows with my Paper Snips. Isn’t that adorable !?! I can see me using this awesome stamp a WHOLE lot !!

Here is a picture of the Undefined kit with my 2 stamps I made !! Love them !!

And here is a second card I made today using the stamp. So cute right ?? I am so sad the Polka Dot Parade DSP is going, it is so perfect for my Minnie Mouse !! And check out the way I made Mickey’s out of the Rhinestones !! Love it.

Well thats it for me today !! Thanks a lot for dropping by and Happy Stamping !!

Eggstra Spectacular Treat Holder

Hey Stampers,

Thought I would stop by and share the fun treats for my Easter table this year ! I got this awesome idea from Sandi MacIver. She created these adorable little treat holders that she called Egg Crates. Click on over to her blog to see the video on how to make them yourself !! Take a look at my fun take, using the Eggstra Spectacular and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets !!

Aren’t they great ?? I used lots of fun Eastery colors - Pool Party, Blushing Bride, Wisteria Wonder, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz and Crisp Cantaloupe. Love those colors together !! Here is a close up of my fav combo of Pool Party and Blushing Bride:

How easy were these to make !! They hold a Cadbury Cream Egg just PERFECTLY ! And I love the little bunny with his Rhinestone tail, don’t you ?? And the splatters from the Gorgeous Grunge set add such great interest to the holder itself. I just love them !! Yet another fun project proving how essential the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch is, right ??

Well thats it for me today - why don’t you try to make some of these for your Easter table ?!? Have a blessed Easter and Happy Stamping !!

Too Kind Easter Treat

Hey Stampers,

Easter is this weekend, so I will be showing a couple fun Easter projects this week ! The one I am sharing with you today is a sweet treat I made for my son’s babysitter. I love how it turned out, take a look !!

Doesn't that look cute ?? I made this super easy and yummy Easter Marshmallow Bark, filled up a large mason jar and decorated it ! Very easy way to give a Easter gift. The fabric covering the mason jar is retired SU Twitterpated fabric, tied with (also retired) Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon. See this next pic for a close up of the tag.

One of my favourite flower sets in the Annual Catalogue is the Too Kind set. Isn’t it beautiful on this tag ? The Chalk Talk framelit also layers so great with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Adorable ! 

Thats it for me today - thanks a lot for dropping by and Happy Stamping !!

Heartfelt Easter Banner

Hey Stampers,

I had a couple free minutes yesterday (and yes that is ALL the time this cute project took) so I decided to make a cute easter banner using the Heartfelt Banner Kit that I earned for FREE during Saleabration ! I am one of those people that do decorate their house for Easter - complete with a little “bunny village” that I put on my mantle in the living room ! I thought that this fun banner would look just darling underneath it - what do you think ??

Is that ca-ute or what ?? The sample pic that came with it showed attaching your own photos to the banner, but I used my Cricut to cut out the word Easter with my Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz and Coastal Cabana cardstock. Then I stamped them for some interest with a tiny heart stamp (from the SAB set Banner Blast), a polkadot stamp (from the Perfect Pennants set) and the Chevron background stamp. They turned out SO awesome !!

Here’s a little close up to show you some of the detail. I thought it needed a little bling (doesn’t’ everything ??) so I added some Silver Glimmer paper hearts and butterflies. LOVE this fun and quick project !! 

Thanks so much for dropping by today - why don’t you make something beautiful for your house today !! Happy Stamping !!
