Fabulous Birthday Cards

Remember to Create!

Hello Stamping Friends,

This week with the Sisters in Stamping we are sharing fabulous birthday cards with all of you. Being that everyone has a birthday each year, these are probably the most needed cards every year. 

This is definitely a very girly card.  I suppose I should have added some dazzling diamonds to make it a bit more sparkly. You can never go wrong with more glitter. (That's my motto!)  I used the Best Dressed Designer Series paper to start with my colors and then I just continues with the stamp set from the suite. I colored the perfume bottle, lipstick, and the flowers with the Stampin' Blend markers. To finish the lipstick off, I used the Wink of Stella shimmer pen to add some sparkle to the purple lipstick. Shimmery lipstick is just better.  Those three pieces are cut out and attached with dimensionals.

Then just start layering to give your card the complete finished look. The more layers the better, or so I think. The old olive strips are layered between the blackberry bliss and the highland heather layers for a little different look. Usually I would layer those behind the bottom layer.

I hope you enjoy this card. Thanks for visiting and be sure to come back soon. Don't forget to head over to the Sisters in Stamping blog for more birthday inspiration.

Designer Series Paper Makes Creating Easy

Remember to Create!

Hello Stamping Friends,

Welcome to another great week with the Sisters in Stamping. This week we are letting the designer series papers do the work for us. Creating with these papers is so easy. They help with colors, stamp choice, and overall layout.


I used the Peaceful Poppies designer series paper to create this Sympathy card. I can not tell you how much I dislike making these card, but I know how much they are appreciated by the recipients when they lose a loved one. They are necessary but thinking why they need to be sent is just too sad for me. 

For this card, I made the designer paper the main thing you see and then added some punched circles for the greeting with one little cut out poppy to bring it all together. Of course, the greeting is attached using dimensionals. I also took the mossy meadow Stampin' Write marker to doodle around the edge of the white circle. Without it, it was just to bland. It really brought the whole project together. I also punched some leaves to stick behind the greeting to add a little more. 

Don't forget to head over to the Sisters in Stamping for more designer series paper inspiration. You won't be disappointed.

Happy Mail

Remember to Create!

Hello Stamping Friends,

I know, I have inundated you with a lot of hearts lately, but this is probably the last one this year. I made these adorable little mailboxes for my class and a few of my friends. I loved making them because the supplies were minimal, effort was minimal, but the finished project was a wow. My kiddos at school were gushing over them. They were so excited to have their own mini mailbox. Several of them said they are going to ask to mount them outside their bedrooms so they can get notes. Not so sure how the parents are going to feel about that. 


The neat thing is that you can make each one look a little different than the others by switching up the sides of the designer paper you choose. I also wrote their names on the hearts on front door, just took a picture before that step to preserve their privacy.


Look how different each one of them are, yet they all look awesome together.


By the way, these adorable little, plain white mailboxes have been hoarded in my stamp room for years. Not sure what I was waiting for, but this year I said, "Enough is enough. I'm going to use them." Please tell me you have hoarded items in your stash too.

February is All About Love

Remember to Create!

Hello Stamping Friends,

Happy Valentine's Day! Hope you celebrated sweetly with your loved ones. Remember it's for all your loves, not just a significant other. Since February is all about love and our blog hop with the Stampers Dozen Group falls on Valentine's day we just couldn't help ourselves. We had to share projects that are promoting the love.


If you saw my earlier post today with the Sisters in Stamping, you saw a very easy card to create. Well, this card is no different because it is just as simple. I used the From My Heart Bundle to create the card. I let the designer series paper do most of the work for me because it is beautiful. This paper is a specialty designer series paper, so those little hearts you see on the background are metallic and raised. The heart the greeting is on is also metallic. The awesome thing about that heart is that the paper consists of rows of hearts that match the heart punches perfectly. I love the easy coordination of products. Stampin' Up! makes crafting so easy by taking so much of the guess-work out of creating.

Stamping From the Heart


 Hello stamping friends,

Welcome to another Fabulous Friday with the Sisters in Stamping and Happy Valentine's Day to you. This week we are sharing some great heart projects. So from my heart to yours, I hope you have a fantastic Valentine's Day.


This card came together so quick. I used the From My Heart Suite Bundle. Most of the card consists of designer series paper. The only stamp I used was the greeting, "From My Heart To Yours." The center heart is actually punched from the designer series paper in the bundle. The coordination of products is great in this bundle for making projects come together so seamlessly and effortlessly.

Don't forget to head over to the Sisters in Stamping blog for more ideas with heart.

Once again, Happy Valentine's Day. Thanks for stopping by. See you again soon.
