I created this card for a 2017 Occasions card swap with 18 other Maine Demonstrators from all different parts of the state. Everyone chose a different stamp set, mine was the Nailed It Bundle.
Inside my card I stamped Happy Belated Birthday.
Here are the directions:
1. Emboss DSP with Hexagon Dynamic Folder.
2. Adhere DSP to card front with Multipurpse Liquid Glue.
3. Stamp screwdriver on Island Indigo CS.
4. Die cut screwdriver from Silver Foil and then die cut screwdriver handle from Island Indigo. Trim handle and glue to silver screwdriver.
5. Stamp saying in Black on Whisper White CS.
6. Attach screwdriver to White CS with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then stamp screws with Smokey Slate.
7. Glue to Island Indigo layer, then glue to card.
8. Add embellishment.
I will post the rest of the cards in future posts.
Another card I created using Stampin' Up!'s Sealed With Love stamp set. I love making fancy fold cards and this one is no exception. Lots of little details which I love and you can find on most of my cards!
I used the same products as I did for yesterday's card plus Pink Pirouette Cardstock (111351), Pink Pirouette Classic Stampin' Pad (126956), Delicate White Doilies (141701, and Metallic Enamel Shapes (141678). Wouldn't you have felt special if you had recieved this card on Valentine's Day?
Stampin' Up!'s Sealed With Love stamp set isn't just for Valentine's Day. It can be used for a birthday, anniversary, miss you, or just because card.

I have fallen in love with Stampin' Up!'s Windoow Shopping Bundle. It can be used for much, much more than just another box. If your signed up for my monthly newsletter, then you saw the card and instructions using one of the dies from this bundle. Below is a box I created:
1. First die cut 2 of the window box dies with Mint Macaron cardstock. Then die cut the design on the box top.
2. Using the box top as a guide, cut a piece of Island Indigo cardstock to fit inside the cover.
3. I cut out 6 squares 1 /12" x 1 1/2" each from Blooms and Bliss DSP. Then die cut each square using one of the side dies.
4. Glue DSP to the box. Note: if using a directional pattern the side attached to the bottom piece is in the right direction. For the sides attached to the top piece reverse the pattern, so when attached together all sides will be going in the same direction.
5. Stamp scrap and die cut for tag.
6. Trim side flaps off ends of box bottom ONLY.
7. Assemble box and tie on tag with Baker's Twine or gold cord. Watch video below for assembley directions.

Enjoy making your own special gift box.
This is a card I made using Stampin' Up!'s Best Birds stamp set. We have been watching the birds at our feeder and have seen the usually wrens, chickadees, finches, and blue jays. I was hoping that with warmer weather we would start to see some robins – ain't going to happen for a while!
Mother Nature has decided to give us all the snow we didn't get so far this winter in February. We received 6 snowstorms in 10 days! Over 60" of snow in some areas. So what else could I do? Produce a little magic – card, that is.
The magic begins:
Every time I see the "magic" I smile. You can find instructions for making this type og card by searching the web or YouTube for magic card instructions.
