Number of Years

Hello! Our Grand Niece turns 1 today and this is the card I made for her.

I know this doesn't look very child like, but I wanted to feature the new In Colors and the Number of Years stamp set. I decided to stamp a bunny from a retired set and make it look like it was sneaking out of a flower garden so it was a little more appropriate for a one year old. Oh, well...

Stamp Set: Number of Years
Paper:  Powder Pink, Whisper White
Ink: Powder Pink, Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig, Berry Burst
Big Shot:Large Numbers Framelits

Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy your weekend.

DSC#240 Daisy Crate

Hello! What fun I had with these three colors today! Decided to do something different this week and made a 3D project using the new Wood Crate Framelits, Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy punch.

The daisy stamp set and punch were two things from the new catalog that I told myself I was not going to buy. I mean I already had too many retired flower sets, why would I need another, right? Well, you know how it goes...people start posting all their fabulous creations and before you know it, you are online ordering it! LOL So, the flower has a punch, but I hand cut out the leaves. I wrapped lollipop sticks with a 1/4" piece of Old Olive cardstock and then attached the flowers with a glue dot, one in front of the stick and one behind. Don't you just love the Gold Faceted Gems in the center? Guess what? I finally remembered to stamp on the crate before I assembled it! Yippee! 

Stamp Set: Daisy Delight
Paper:  Old Olive, Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry
Ink: Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry
Big Shot: Wood Crate Framelits
Punch: Daisy
Extras: Glue Dots, Gold Faceted Gems

Thanks so much for stopping by, I truly appreciate it.

Lit Me Up Jar

Hello!  I've been meaning to post this project for quite awhile and never seemed to get around to it. Today is the day, I'm doing it! I thought this turned out pretty good. I used it to hold money for a birthday gift.

I used the Lift Me Up stamp set and the coordinating Up & Away Thinlits Dies to decorate the jar.

Here's another view. The cloud was perfect for stamping the Happy Birthday on.

One last view from the top - can't leave the lid plain now, can we? Altering containers is one of my favorite things to do.

Stamp Set: Lift Me Up
Paper: Garden Green, Cherry cobbler, Crushed Curry, Whisper White, retired DSP
Ink: Night of Navy

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today.

DSC# 239 Flourishing Phrases

Hi!  As you can see today's challenge is a Sketch Pad. Here's what I made...

I stamped the flower image from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set onto Wisteria Wonder and the leaf image onto Wild Wasabi cardstock and then glued them onto my card base.  The flower and leaves were cut out using my faithful Big Shot and the Flourish Thinlits Dies.  Look at that, I added an embellishment!!! It's one of the White Perfect Accents. I really like these because they are pretty flat and safe for mailing.

Stamp Set: Flourishing Phrases
Paper: Whisper White Thick Cardstock, Wisteria Wonder, Wild Wasabi
Ink: Wisteria Wonder
Big Shot: Flourish Thinlits Dies

Thanks so much for joining us today, hope you enjoyed the blog hop!

Happy Birthday Gorgeous

Hello!  Today I am sharing a birthday card I made using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set. This is a new set not only has some pretty flowers, but a couple of balloon and nice sentiments too.

Don't you just love the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP?  The Crushed Curry Mini Chevron Ribbon is very soft and wonderful to work with. I stamped off once before stamping the flower and leaf base. The detail stamp was done full strength. The Scalloped Tag Topped punch was used on the sentiment layer.

Paper:  Crushed Curry, Whisper White, Whole Lot of Lovely DSP

DSC#238 Delightful Daisy Treat Bag

Hello!  Boy, I panicked when I saw this week's challenge. We are moving soon so I haven't been ordering much Stampin' Up! (believe me it's killing me!!) and I wasn't sure if I had any current embellishments. Thank heavens I have been hoarding my Gold Binder Clips!!!  LOL 

I was thrilled with how this treat bag turned out. I used the Delightful Daisy DSP, Big Shot, Mini Treat Bag Thinlites Dies, and the You're So Sweet (sentiment) & Happy Birthday Gorgeous (flowers) stamp sets to make it. Couldn't resist tying a retired piece of ribbon to the binder clip! A Blender Pen was used, along with my Daffodil Delight stamp pad to color in the two flowers. The good thing about this challenge is that I will be able to see all the cool embellishments the others have used and I can add them to my wish list. ;)

Stamp Sets:  You're So Sweet, Happy Birthday Gorgeous
Paper:  Delightful Daisy DSP, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink:  Old Olive, Daffodil Delight
Big Shot: Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies
Extras:  Gold Binder Clips, Retired Ribbon

Thanks so much for taking time to stop by, I really appreciate it!

Another 4th of July Wood Crate

Hello!  I cannot stop making these cute little crates, so I thought I would share one more with you.

You are probably thinking that this is just like the one I posted Wednesday night, but it is a little different. This time I stamped the crate with red flowers and I changed my colors to Real Red and Dapper Denim. Also I used Whisper White cardstock for the crate itself and White Baker's Twine for the bow.

Also, I copied Dawn Olchefske's idea and stamped Dapper Denim stars on the sides of the crate.  I was pretty excited that I remembered to do all my stamping before gluing it together! LOL

That's it for today. Hope you all enjoy your 4th of July!
