You’ve Got Style Birthday Card – Video Tutorial!

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

You’ve Got Style has been a very popular set in the recent Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue and today’s project features these funny old ladies!   Watch the video below to learn how to put together this quick and fun birthday card for someone who’d appreciate a laugh:

I chose Melon Mambo as my accent colour for the black and white base, but of course, you can choose any colour you think your friend would love.


Take a few minutes to see how quick this one is to finish and how to colour her up in no time:

Clean and Simple Colorful Seasons

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

You know that deck chair that is showing up all over the net?  (and here on my blog!)  Well the Colorful Seasons Bundle is actually quite a large die set that includes a scallop edge, the chair, leaves, snowflakes, and these beautiful flowers and branch:

I think this branch is absolutely gorgeous.

On this project, I wanted everything to be black and white with just the flowers standing out.  The pearls give it just a tiny bit of 3D to accentuate the focal point, too.

This would make a lovely sympathy card, or change up the words to be a thank you or birthday card.

I have used the new Garden Trellis Embossing Folder for the second layer in this project.   I thought it’s not only a pretty pattern, but it echos the clean feeling of these blossoms and branch.

This project is reasonably quick to complete.  I was thinking it would also make a super gift pack: do up a set of these, each card with a different sentiment from the bundle and each card with a different colour of flower.  Package them up together for an attractive gift.

Thanks for stopping by!  I’d love to have you in a class with me this August!

Kind regards,

You Move Me VIDEO – Interactive Pocket Card!

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Today’s share is featuring the new You Move Me Bundle from Stampin’ Up!.  This is a set that admittedly looks a little odd in the catalogue, but wait until you see it in action!  Quite unique, this interactive card will truly wow the recipient:

I’ve used Fresh Fig, Sweet Sugarplum, Soft Sky, and So Saffron in this project.

I’ve kept the front relatively simple; this project doesn’t lend itself to too many layers anyway.

The new Glitter Enamel Dots are just gorgeous!  I can see I’ll be using a lot of these!

So far the bird looks good, but nothing amazing – watch the video below to see her in action!


And the Very Vanilla piece inside pulls out (necessarily) and is in itself a folded card for your sentiments.  Check out how to make this quick project in the video as well as seeing the bird fluttering in action:

( I got a new phone case so I sound a bit like I’m under water; I’ll take the case off next video!! LOL)

Happy Birthday Gorgeous – with Free Video Tutorial!

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Happy first day of June and the first day of our new Annual Catalogue!  I had a great deal of fun putting through orders (mostly for myself!) this morning. There is nothing quite inspiring like a few new toys!

Today’s share is a fun Double Front Window Card using the new Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle:


Please also note the gorgeous, fantastic, versatile Wood Textures papers used here!  How I love these!  Wonderful with flowers, masculine, teens, baby — just anything at all!  I encourage all of you to put these beauties on your first order!


The front panel of the card features a window, which I encourage you to watch the video below to see just how I did that to create the matted frame.  The second layer of the card showcases a second wood print with a bit of stamping.


The Happy Birthday Die makes for a more interesting window here, but also consider you can cut the two words apart and use them separately for even more versatility!

Please take a few moments to watch my video and see how to make a card like this:


Thanks so much for stopping by – I appreciate each and every one of you!  I hope you are enjoying the new catalogue and I look forward to another Stampin’ Up! year of inspiration, laughs and fun!  Please join us for a class!
