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.

Are You a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber?

If you are a Paper Pumkin subscriber, what did you make with your March kit?  I had a lot of fun with my March kit, take a look at the the different items I created and I still shave some left overs to use. Paper Pumpkin is a monthly kit that comes in the mail and is a surprise each month. Each kit includes paper, envelopes, accessories, adhesive, stamps and ink to create the projects.

The March kit included the supplies to make 4 mini cards and envelope with belly band and 4 cards with an envelope printed on the inside and a pocket to hold a gift card.
