5 Minute Baby Card

Holy Moly, humans! I can’t believe how fast this card went together! It was actually less than 5 minutes! And not more than 7 minutes including selecting colors and cutting the card stock! It even has green on it so we won’t get pinched today! That’s how important color is! It sure was nice that we had Balmy Blue cardstock and Granny Apple Green card stock and ribbon. Perfect match for this quick and cute card for a baby shower. All the new mom has to do is take the gift card off the front of the card and go shopping! If you don’t have all of the cardstock colors,...

Making a Best Friend Card

Do you have friends that are really more like family? If you live near your family, you may only have a few. If you don’t live near your family, I hope you have a lot of them! Here’s a simple card you could send to all of them! I’ll let you in on a little secret… The leaves were actually leftovers! We used Stampin’ Blends to color on Shimmery White Card Stock to make them. They were actually cut off of another project – I think the one we featured in this post. As we near the end of Sale-A-Bration, please be aware that things are selling out. There are...

It’s Easy to Make a Quick Masculine Birthday Card

It’s so easy to make a masculine card when you have the right tools. You may have noticed that we use our Big Shot on the vast majority of our projects. When Stampin’ Up! first started carrying the Big Shot, Ann didn’t even know they existed! She can still remember when Stampin’ Up! Co-Founder and then CEO, Shelli Gardner, demonstrated it at their convention in Salt Lake City. Ann went back to her hotel room and couldn’t wait to call some of her friends. And that’s what made it so quick and easy to make this masculine card. We’ve got over 285 other...

Quick, Simple, Easy Birthday Card

What do you do when you need a quick gift? A gift card? What do you do when you need to make a quick handmade card? Well, I’m about to share with you just how we did that. First Ann went to Starbucks and picked up a gift card. It had to be one that Ann liked the saying and how it looked.It had to have colors that complimented Stampin’ Up! colors. Then she came home and made this in minutes. Why would we pick this color combination? Well, because it is a perfect match for the Starbucks gift card Ann picked. How did Ann attach the gift card inside the card? 3 Mini Glue Dots were...

Making Valentines with Leftover Stamping Supplies

We’re really on a roll now! This is not the first time this month that I’ve made a card with leftovers. And it’s not the first time this month that we’ve made a card with no stamping. You can see the original card in this post from last month. You’d be surprised how fast we made this so that we could get it in the mail to my human sister and her family. It’s just a little love note to let them know that we’re thinking about them. First we made it this way. When Ann thought that there were four people in the family – 2 adults and 2 kids –...

Same Stamp Sets, Different Day

The card we featured in yesterday’s post was so popular, that we’re using the same stamp set to make today’s card. Now, remember that this is a sneak peek of one of the sets that you can get free with a qualifying order on Friday. It comes with a coordinating pack of Designer Series Paper that we used in today’s card. You can see the video at the bottom of yesterday’s post where Ann shared the set, the Designer Series Paper and some other things that will be available Friday. We’re thinking that most of you will use this for a birthday card. Ann and I have...
