Pretty Kitty – Pull Down Card

I was at a craft convention and saw a card with a pull down window ( I don't know what else to call it) and it had a pile of kittens.  This is my version of that card using Stampin' Up! products.

Pretty Kitty Jeannine Tarrio Stampin' Up!

This is the card with the wiindow pulled down:

Pretty Kitty Pull Down Jeannine Tarrio

I used Stampin' Up!'s Verticle Greetings stamp set and Stampin' Up!'s Pretty Kitty stamp set.   My window piece is about 2 1/2" x 5" scored at 1/4" on three sides and a 1/2 circle punched at the bottom.  You can make the window holder and pull down any size by working your dimensions out from the opening.  You just need to allow about a 3/8" border around the opening  on 3 sides and score. On the bottom end leave 1/2" and punch 1/2 a circle. Then allowing a 1/4" tab for adhering with Tear Tape, cut cardstock or Designer Series Paper.

I also stamped a kitty and saying on the inside.

Celebrate Birthdays or the 4th of July?

This was one of the cards I created for my June clubs.  I combined Stampin' Up!'s Jar of Love with Birthday Banners to create my card.

Jar of Love, Jeannine Tarrio, Stampin' Up!


It is a shaker card and is so much fun to make. I used the brights sequins and the Confetti Punch for the inside of the jar. Also, window sheets and Stampin' Up!'s new Foam Adhesive Strips.

A Sparkly Hydrangea For Your Birthday

I inked and sponged Stampin' Up!'s Brick Wall Embossing Folder to create the background for my sparkly hydrangea card. Using the clear Wink of Stella pen over the stamped petals. The die cut flower is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. And I found a happy birthday that fits perfectly in the "brick".

Happy 4th, Mother’s Day – You are totally awesome…

Once you read my post you will understand the title.  I haven't blogged much lately, so I am trying to catch up on my Stamping Up! project/card items.  All my pictures (okay, most of my items) have been photographed before I gave them away . So I will be trying to catch up and all projects will have some details, but not as elaborate as if there were only one project.
First, Happy 4th of July! I created my basket from a Stampin' Up! Whisper White envelope.  It is quick and easy to make.
