Birthday Card for a Sweet Girl

Today’s card isn’t for a kid like yesterday’s card was. This gal is grown up and taking on the world. My human sister is rocking the world so of course, we had to make a special card just for her. And Glimmer Paper is perfect to make this card sparkle! We sent it in a Priority envelope so that we could put lots of layers on it. Lots of Dimensionals. I wonder if this stamp set is going to be on the retiring list that’s due to be announced this month after Ann returns from the Stampin’ Up! convention. Do you have any guesses? This might be a good time to take a...

Spring Kids Birthday Card

Spring Kids Birthday Card

If you watched all of yesterday’s video, you might notice that Ann was talking about alternative pets. There was a lot more chatter about squirrels, chipmunks, hamsters and guinea pigs than Ann shared onscreen. There was so much that it inspired Ann to make a special card with a squirrel type character on it. (If you like it, I told her to do it.) Isn’t it cute? I do have to admit that I don’t know what kind of animal it is, but it’s still cute. Don’t you agree? We tried something new when we colored this guy. It’s got some really tiny places to color...

Grapefruit Grove is Growing on Me

It was such a great day yesterday. We shared almost 20 swaps made with Sale-A-Bration items. And that’s not all! Ann shared some ideas with the new Stampin’ Up! Storage that’s going to be available for all of us on April 1st. You can watch the show on YouTube here. You’ll be able to see what’s coming up and how you can get it. That is, unless you want to wait until I bark about it here later. In the meantime, here’s a fun birthday card idea using the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper that is now back in stock. It’s so bright and springy that it will...

Masculine Card Video

Did you see the card in yesterday’s post? I was sworn to secrecy so I couldn’t tell you that we had a video of it that we planned to release. We just had to wait until today. You see, Ann had to make three of the cards! So why not shoot two videos in one? We’ve done it before with a small video inside of a video. This time, you can watch Ann color the car or assemble the card or watch them both at one time! You can watch the video below or watch it on YouTube.

Making a Masculine Birthday Card for Car Enthusiasts

Ann and my favorite huMAN are going out to eat with friends to celebrate everyone who has a March birthday. (They’re celebrating Ann’s too because there were calendar complications last month.) So Ann need birthday cards for THREE guys! Yowzah! I hope they won’t mind all getting almost the same card. This is what we came up with. This car was colored with Real Red Stampin’ Blends. Another card had a Cherry Cobbler car. The last one has a Balmy Blue car. Don’t you just love the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper in the background? It gives it such a classic look...

Make a Punch Cake While You Can

Make a Punch Cake While You Can

Two popular punches sold out almost immediately once they were released in January 2019. The Butterfly Duet Punch is expected April 1st. The Cake Builder Punch appeared this week and is already on the low inventory list. And, of course, the same goes for the Piece of Cake Bundle. (Bundling the stamps and the punch together will save you 10%.) So, before this vanishes, we thought we’d make a card. I hope you like it because I’m not sure that Ann was really listening to what I was barking about what I wanted. You see, today is her dear friend’s birthday and the card...
