Petal Pallete Birthday Card

When I saw this suite I was so intrigued because I was excited to use my new Stampin Blends Markers. This suite is perfect for it. Th images are so easy to color and blend and it comes out beautiful every time. 

I just love how these cards came out. And I have already given them away. The purple flower above was given to my grandma who celebrated her 78th birthday recently. She loved it and the unicorn I crochet for her. 

Now of course once I come up with a design I have to try it in different colors. So I have lots of pictures attached to this blog.

Simple Teen Card

I got excited when I saw this stamp set in the new Sale-a-bration catalog. I loved the shoes! Reason being is that I wear this style of shoes with everything. I love my converse and am known to wear them from all my friends and family. 

I loved this stamp and card idea for those teenagers in our lives. Now not every teenager is like this but usually they don't appreciate the work we put into our cards. So when I came up with this design I wanted it to be as simple as possible yet catches their attention even if it's just for a minute. 

This was a fun card to make. I use our Blender Pens to color in the shoes. I love how this detail showed up and it makes the shoes stand out perfectly. 

Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 
score 4 1/4
Lemon Lime Cardstock: 2 1/4 x 4
DSP: 3 3/4 x 1 1/4
Whisper White (inside): 4 x 5 1/4

Panda Birthday Card

Nothing is cuter then pandas dancing around a birthday card. 
I loved how this card came out and it was so much fun to make. 

I did see this design on Pinterest but no link to any blog or video. But I loved the idea to incorporate the pandas all over the card. 

This was a very easy card to make and my group of ladies loved it. What I like most about it is that it can go to anyone of any age. A fun birthday card at best. 

Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2
score at 4 1/4
Thick Whisper White (2): 5 3/8 x 4 1/8
Markers: Flirty Flamingo, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Temping Turquoise

Thank You Panda Card

January is my birthday month and I have been celebrating a lot. I turned 35 this year and am super excited for whats to come. 
To celebrate my birthday I had a craft party. I invited my group of ladies and we celebrated the new year and being together after a long hiatus. 
Of course during all the fun I forgot to get pictures. 

To thank my ladies for celebrating with me I made this cute Panda card. I am obsessed with this Party Panda set and I have so many ideas that I want to make with it. This is one of those sets that will never leave my stamp collection. I will use it until it breaks. 

I made the cards using Stampin Up Note Cards. I love using these. They make such a simple card or quick note for someone. I had so much fun making these particular cards and writing a special message to each person. 

One trick that helps this card stand out is how I colored the panda. I used the new Stampin Blends Markers and only made a simple line to highlight the panda and give it a more realistic feel. Something so simple can add so much detail. 

Hope you enjoyed!!

Join My Team During Sale-a-Bration

I am back!
I took some time off during December however it wasn't planned that way. I ended up getting busy making Christmas presents and it took up all of my free time. However the break was needed. 
But now I am back and the new Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration is in full swing. 

This year is going to a special one. I just celebrated my 35th birthday and getting ready to celebrate 5 years of being a Stampin Up Demonstrator. 
I can't believe it has been 5 years! 
In those 5 years I have loved and learned so much when it comes to crafting and expanding my business. One goal I have made for myself now is to grow more in Stampin Up and first with a team. 

I currently don't have a big Stampin Up Team. I have had people sign up with me in the past and have dropped for whatever reason. No fault of their own of course but I have wanted to build a solid team to craft with. 

During Sale-a-Bration is one of the best times to sign up to become a Stampin Up Demonstrator. 
For $99 you will receive $125 worth of any Stampin Up items that you want, PLUS ANY TWO STAMP SETS FOR FREE. And FREE SHIPPING! 
You can't ask for anything better then that. 

Now there is no need to make this about a business. You can easily sign up and be a hobby demonstrator and simply buy craft items at a great discount. 
You also get to see and purchase products before anyone else and attend OnStage twice a year. 

Please consider signing up to be a part of my team. I am here to help in anyway that I can.

November Thank Cards - For my customers

I am all about being thankful in November but I am always thankful for my customers. 
I love each and every customer that shops with me. I always appreciate their business and for choosing me to be their Stampin Up Demonstrator. 

Whenever you shop with me I send out some sort of thank you gift in the mail by either the end of the month or beginning of the next month. I try to change it up a bit each month as well. Usually I will send out a set of card, around 3-4, or a treat. But I always try to make the effort to send something out. 

These are the card sets going out for those that shopped with me in November. I wanted to use up the rest of my autumn DSP and make small notecards for everyone. 

If you would like to receive a goodie from me each month just simply click the "Shop with Me" to the right and make a purchase. I don't have a minimum for your purchase. Any amount is fine to be able to receive a goodie from me for the month. 

Cardstock:  3 1/4 x 4 3/4
Designer Series Paper:  3 1/8 x 4 5/8
Scraps of Very Vanilla and matching Cardstock

Hope you enjoyed!

Colorful Birthday Card - Using The Stampin Blends

I am loving these new markers. 
They make my stamp images stand out and make the color in my cards pop. 

With this card design I couldn't choose just one color. It was hard to even narrow it down to these 4 colors. But I love them none the less. 

My New Years Resolution is to be more active in my Stampin Up business and also send out more cards. I make a lot of cards but end up keeping them. I sometimes can't part with my artwork and I keep it and no one gets to see it but me. 

That is actually the worst thing I can do. So I have made myself promise myself that I need to send out more cards. I have all my birthdays planned out for the year and I'm ready to clean out my stash. 
Enjoy the pictures below.
