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 –...

Happy Stampaversary, Ann!

Happy Stampaversary, Ann!

Can you believe that Ann has been a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator for 20 years? And in April, she’s been doing it full time for 15 of those 20 years. I don’t know what most people would do but Ann took the day off. And then she went to bunco. It wasn’t the highlight of her day. Actually, making this card was the highlight of her day. That, and watching a movie with my favorite huMAN. She also thought about what would be an awesome special to offer you to celebrate her 20th Anniversary with Stampin’ Up!. (The only thing she’s done longer is be married –...

It’s Not Just for Birthdays

It’s Not Just for Birthdays

When Ann and I first saw the Amazing Life stamp set, we thought that it was pretty much for birthdays with a few things thrown in to make the birthday card around a theme – like flowers for spring and 4-leaf clovers for St. Patrick’s Day. Amazing Life #148750 It’s a Valentine Card Idea! All of a sudden, we got an idea to use the Amazing Life Bundle for something other than a birthday card. When you add the Stitched Rectangle Framelits to the Amazing Life stamp set, you get a bundle. You can save 10% by buying them together as a bundle. And this is what we came up with. See...

Giving a Valentine Wish

Giving a Valentine Wish

I can’t tell you how much I’ve wanted Ann to use this Life is Grand stamp set. And offering a Valentine Wish is perfect to make your card stand out. This is a perfect card for someone who has a birthday near Valentine’s Day because you could actually use this for Valentine’s or for a birthday. Who’s on Your Wish Granting List? And what kind of wish would you grant them? Would it be a Disney trip? Would it be a new car? Would it be buying them a new outfit or taking them to lunch? Or would you wash their dishes? (Sometimes that’s the perfect gift –...

Incredible!  Like You!

Ann and I simply adore the greetings in today’s featured stamp set, Incredible Like You. We weren’t sure about the flowers and everything, but not the verdict is in! We Love Them! But more important – what do you think? Can you spot the TWO free items on the card? I think I’m loving this card and would love to send it to each of you! But the best I can do is to send those of you on our mailing list a special card tutorial that I don’t share elsewhere.. Are you on the list? If you haven’t been receiving these mostly weekly card tutorials in your inbox, you...

Do You Need a Masculine Valentine Card?

Do You Need a Masculine Valentine Card?

As crafters, we can sometime stumble on doing those man cards. You know – masculine cards. The ones for your own favorite huMAN. Yes, I know how you crafty ladies are. Many of you love the purples and the pinks. Most of you like all those flowers. But What Does Your Man Like? Now, I shouldn’t bark in generalities. Let’s face it. Nothing is always or never. Nothing is all black or all white. But I can almost guarantee that if you put a car on his card, his heart will go pitter-pat. He doesn’t even have to be a car collector or a car enthusiast for this to work! It must...
