Stampin’ Up! Owl Congratulations

Hello and happy Sunday! Well, there is nothing like living in the Midwest. Yesterday it was 70 degrees and today it is sleeting…=( So since I am stuck inside, I wanted to share a card I made this week for my cousin who just announced that they are expecting a baby! I started out with a base of Crumb Cake and then added another layer that I embossed with clear embossing powder and the Simply Stars stamp set. Next, I added a large circle and stamped the owl from the set Fox & Friends in Summer Starfruit. I added a small button tied with some Baker’s Twine and also a banner with the congratulations from the set Delightful Dozen. I am submitting this card at the challenge Anything Goes at Stampin’ For the Weekend. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend!

Stampin’ Up! Stars for Baby


I wanted to play along with the challenge at Less Is More since I hardly ever have baby cards on hand. I also thought the color challenge at Stampin’ Royalty was perfect for a gender neutral card. I used the set Simply Stars and stamped them in Pool Party, Tangerine Tango, Sahara Sand and Lucky Limeaid (substituted for Pear Pizazz). I stamped the sentiment from the set Sweet Essentials on a simple flag. A small candy dot adds a little pop. Thanks for stopping by!

Stampin’ Up! Simply Stars Gift Bag


Today is my husband’s birthday so I decorated his gift bag with Stampin’ Up! supplies. I love doing this because I think it adds a hand made touch and really shows that you took a bit of extra time to make it special. I kept it simple starting with some a Gumball Green flag embossed with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder.  Next, I stamped the sentiment in Basic Gray on a circle of Pool Party. This stamp is from the 2014 Occasions catalog and will be available to order in January! I added a Basic Gray banner and stamped a couple stars from the set Simply Stars in Crushed Curry. Thanks for stopping by!
