Share it Sunday Blog Hop: Stampin' Up! Handsomely Suited Birthday Card

Hello and Happy Sunday! Today I'm super excited to be participating in the Share it Sunday blog hop! The card I designed for this blog hop also corresponds with a challenge I have for you... My team has played "Craft Roulette" by rolling dice to determine certain card making parameters, and it is now my week! The challenge is to use Secondary Colors (orange, green, purple), use a Direct to Paper technique (ex: sponging), make it Masculine, and to use Ribbon. The challenge is posted in my Facebook group, so come along and participate by posting your own card following these parameters!

Swaps Saturday: Samples from 8 Stampin' Up! Sets

Hello and happy Saturday!

I participated in a couple of different card swaps recently (most of them for the new January - June 2021 Mini Catalog but a few also feature Annual Catalog products). Today I'm sharing samples from 8 (yes, EIGHT!) different stamp sets! There are a total of 10 samples on today's post. In the watermark of each photo, you can see the original person who created the swap.

The stamp sets used in these swaps are: Cute Fruit, Heartfelt, Hydrangea Haven, Love You Always, Oval Occasions, Sweet Ice Cream, Tasteful Touches, and Valentine Keepsakes.

I hope these cards provide you with a lot of inspiration - I know I find inspiration from them! I love the color combos these demos used on their cards and can't wait to CASE ("Copy and Share Everything"). Thanks for stopping by my blog today!


Stampin' Up! Hey Birthday Chick Birthday Card

Happy Monday! Today I wanted to give you a sneak peek at the AMAZING new dies that Stampin' Up! is coming out with for the super cute Hey Birthday Chick stamp set!

If you're still on the fence about this set, maybe this card will "uplift" you and convince you that you need it... 😉

JANUARY PAPER PUMPKIN BLOG HOP: Stampin' Up! Always in My Heart

I am so thrilled to be participating in a Paper Pumpkin themed blog hop today! The card I made for this hop was inspired by January's Paper Pumpkin, but actually doesn't use any of the elements directly from the kit. Instead, I found inspiration from those cards and created this one with the Always in My Heart Bundle from Stampin' Up!

Stampin' Up! Pretty Perennials Birthday Card

Every month, my team picks out some colors and does a Color Challenge! In December, we chose Highland Heather, Balmy Blue, Mint Macaron, and Petal Pink as our colors. The challenge is to use at least two of the colors to make a card, but I always like to challenge myself to use all four of the colors. For this birthday card today, I tied in those four colors with Bumblebee and the new Pretty Perennials bundle!

Two Card Tuesday: Stampin' Up! Handsomely Suited Birthday Cards

It's time for another Two Card Tuesday! This one is a bit different, because I didn't follow the same card layout, but rather created two birthday cards using the same suite. These cards both use items from the Handsomely Suited suite which is on pages 66-67 of the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog.

The first card I'm sharing was a card I made for a swap. The second card was made for some men in my life who have upcoming birthdays this month! Be sure to keep scrolling to see both cards! Products used can be found under each card.

Stampin' Up! Handsomely Suited Dentist Retirement Card

Earlier this month, I found out that my Dentist who I've seen my whole life is retiring just three weeks before my next visit. Big bummer! When I heard, I KNEW I wanted to make him a dentist-themed card using the brand new Handsomely Suited suite (more specifically the dies). I'm excited to share that card with you today!

The new Mini Catalog launched yesterday, and I had such a great time creating projects to share with you using some of the AWESOME new product!
