Birthday Card and Coordinating Gift Bag with Stampin' Up! Ride with Me

Birthday-card-gift-bagWe took a fun "ride" yesterday afternoon on Facebook Live with the Stampin' Up! Ride With Me Bundle [151106].

This great bundle and it's versatile, too!  It's not only great for birthdays but also fall-themed and Christmas cards!  Here's a Christmas card sample from my Christmas in July series.

Birthday-card-ride-with-meThe birthday card above was simply stamped and colored with Stampin' Blends. You'll have to watch the video to see my reason for choosing this particular color.

Gift-bag-ride-with-meThe gift bag above shows an alternative use of the truck die and was inspired by a project in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.

In the Facebook Live recording below, I mention a special guest that teams up with me in a recorded video of the making the 3D truck.  You will have to tune back in tomorrow to see that! 

Here's the recording for these two projects.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!
