Stampin' Up! Cards and Celebrating a Birthday...


...Not my birthday but that of our first born!  She's a mighty little thing with strength in faith, strength in joy, and strength in deed!  We are so proud of her and we're preparing to celebrate with her this evening.

Since we're on the subject of birthdays, I wanted to share some birthday cards from the past that you could very easily adapt using current Stampin' Up! products.

  • Love this one using the Circle Thinlits Card Die HERE.
  • A mixture of colors from our Brights Collection with a Teeny Tiny Wish HERE.

  • Neutrals mixed with metallic and glimmer combine for this elegant card.

Be sure to check out the ink and inspirations February Class to Go where you can learn to create a beautiful birthday card using the Butterfly Basics set!  See the details here!

Thanks for celebrating with me and these Stampin' Up! Birthday card ideas!


Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree Card Idea and Video Tutorial

Stampin-up-sheltering-tree-emboss-resistToday's Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree card and video tutorial features a handmade card that I revealed as a sneak peek of the Occasions Catalog over a month ago. 

At that time, there was a request made for a video to demonstrate the how-to for this technique. Emboss resist is one of my favorites but the real magic here is from the combination of ink colors for the background.

View the video tutorial below or HERE over on my You Tube channel.
