Simple Halloween Cat Card


I have for you a very very simple card. I don't see Halloween a time for giving cards, mostly for treat giving. But it is nice to have a card ready for the occasion. 


This card is super simple and can be massed produced for a party or large group.
An idea that can be used it giving it the parents that take their kids trick or treating or even the houses you visit as a thank you. If your a demonstrator put your business card inside. I'm sure it will get someones attention. 


Measurements:
Whisper White Card Base: 8 1/2 x 5/1/2
Score: 4 1/4



Hope you enjoyed!

Pink Sunflower Card


When I saw this set I knew that it would make beautiful sunflowers. But I didn't want to always make yellow sunflowers. Thank goodness for Pinterest. It was easy to look up different sunflowers and different ones that other Demonstrators have already done. 


My favorite color is Pink so of course I had to make some pink flowers. 
Also I don't have a sympathy card and I have recently seen a lot of these type of cards on Pinterest so I figured I needed to make one. 

This card came out better then I expected. Just a beautiful card. One thing that makes this card stand out is the way that I cut the flowers. When you fussy cut anything out usually you leave a type of border around the image. I saw online that with this particular flower if you cut right up to the image line and not leave a border then the flowers have a more realistic feel to them. I found this to be very true. I felt the flowers popped so much better then when I would cut a border. A nice simple trick to try on your next fussy cutting.


Measurements: 
Early Espresso Card Base  8 1/2 x 5 1/2
score 4 1/4
Very Vanilla: (2) 4 1/8 x 5 3/8  and  3/4 x 3 1/2
Wood Textures DSP: 4 x 5 1/4
Scrap of Whisper White for flower stamping 
Scrap of Lemon Lime Twist for leaves



Hope you enjoyed!

I can't get over how fun and simple these cards were to make. I loved the simpleness of these cards and it would be very easy to produce multiples for a set. 

And just a reminder that you can purchase this stamp set with Stampin Rewards that you can earn but only from $150 or more order with Stampin Up. 


I'd love to earn your business, so if you don't have a Stampin Up Demonstrator I'd love to help you out with any questions you may have.

Dare to Dream Card #2


Here is card #2 of the Dare to Dream series. This care uses the same concept as the one before just different colors and flowers. 
The font is what sold me on this stamp set. I loved the big words and how the font makes them stand out against the other text in the set.

Don't forget about the coordinating video that follow.

Dare to Dream Card #1


I recently got the Dare to Dream Stamp Set (143769) and I absolutely love this set. This stamp set has beautiful script that would make great note cards with. 
This set is a Hostess Set. The way to get this set is by Stampin Rewards. You would need to place an order of $150 or more to earn Stampin Rewards. With those rewards you can purchase the Hostess Sets and you have several to chose from. 


This stamp set was a lot of fun to play with. I made a total of 3 cards that display a very easy and simple design. Each card will be posted to the blog and each one has a coordinating video.

Foxy Friend Baby Card

Since I noticed that I didn't have enough baby cards on my blog I felt I needed to continue. I wanted this time to use the Foxy Friends Stamp Set (141549) and make baby cards using these cute animals.



 I used the same card concept as the Moon Baby card with the window sheet. I love this design. It makes for such a cute and detailed baby card that anyone could love.  







 I ended up still using the Moon Baby stamp set with the Foxy Friends to add a little something cute. It totally makes the card pop now. 

   
                                         
                                                 


        
                                              


















(These are the same measurements from the Moon Baby Card)
See Hello Baby Card Video Here 

Measurements:
Card Base: 11 x 4 1/4
score: 5 1/2
cut 2 inches from score line and 2 inches from cut piece
(When I folded this card I made the cut at 2 inches. So the top and bottom of the card are 2 inches.) 

 Window sheet: 3 x 4 1/4
Very Vanilla: (2)   4 1/8 x 1 7/8
DSP: (2)   4 x 1 3/4

Inside Very Vanilla: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8

Hope you enjoyed!

Hello Baby Card (video)





















  I noticed on my blog that I have never made a baby card. How can that be? I have made so many cards in my many years of being a Stampin Up Demonstrator but not a baby card. Well of course I had to change that.


I got this idea from a few cards I saw on Pinterest. It was hard to narrow it down to any one design so I decided to narrow it down to just one stamp set. I love the Moon Baby Stamp Set (143085). It is an absolutely adorable baby stamp.



















I had so much fun making this card. It wasn't in my initial design to add so much detail but I couldn't help myself. I just kept going. And the detail makes such a difference from what I came up with in the beginning.

Card Base: 11 x 4 1/4
score: 5 1/2
