You Rock!

Hi Stampers!

For today's card I went a little out of my comfort zone.  I worked with a very bright, masculine color palette.  I really love the new Layered Letters Alphabet stamp set from the 2015-2016 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog.  It's probably my favorite alpha set ever.  It's a lot of fun to play with.  Great for cards, but it's also a large enough size that it would look great on a scrapbook layout!  I'm definitely going to have to try that!

Do you have this alpha set?  Do you love it?  If not, what's your favorite alpha stamp set?  Let me know in the comments! :-)

By The Tide Class II

Hi Stampers!

I'm back with another card from the By The Tide class I held.  This is another card that I cased from the Create with Connie and Mary blog.  This is a great masculine card to give a special guy!

You can stamp the three focal images on Crumb Cake card stock and then frame the images within the the square punch.  The script stamp is also included in the stamp set.  It makes a great accent to your card.

I stamped the fish on the card interior too!

Of course, I stamped the fish on the envelope as well.

Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla (Interior), Chocolate Chip
Stamps: By the Tide, Just for You (retired)
Ink: Chocolate Chip

By The Tide Class I

Hi Stampers!

This is one of the cards that we made at my By The Tide class.  I cased this card from the Create with Connie and Mary blog.  I love how this lobster looks when embossed with the Tangerine Tango Stampin' Emboss powder.

Here's a close up of the embossed lobster.  Look at how detailed these stamps are!  

I couldn't resist...the card interior needed a lobsty as well!

Okay....I needed a lobster on the envelope too.  I couldn't help it!  He's so cute!

Cycle Celebration!

Hi Stampers!

Have you seen the Cycle Celebration stamp set in the 2013-2014 Idea Book and Catalog?  I love this set.  It was on my first order from that catalog.  Here is a masculine birthday card that I created using that stamp set and the Birthday Basics  Designer Series Paper.  I love that the DSP coordinates with the stamp set.  It makes creating beautiful cards super easy!  You may notice that the sentiment in the stamp set is much longer than just Happy Birthday.  Using your Stampin' Write markers allows you to ink up the entire stamp, or just the parts that you want for your project.  

I used the pewter embossing powder for the bicycle.  It's my favorite embossing powder out of all the colors Stampin' Up! carries.  It's super versatile!  I then added two Bermuda Bay candy dots to the centers of the wheels to give some added diminution.

Stampin' Supplies:
Card stock: Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, Bermuda Bay, Crisp Cantaloupe, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Birthday Basics
Stamps: Cycle Celebration
Ink: Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, Versamark
Other: Finishing Touches Edgelits, Sponge Dauber, Pewter Embossing Powder, Brights Candy Dots, Heat Tool, Paper Snips, Dimensionals

I'm Leaving on a Jet Plane and April Birthdays

Hi Stampers!

Today will be the last live post I make while I'm still in this country!  I'm heading out to Italy for vacation!  YAAAAAYYYY!!!!!

I will try to schedule some posts ahead of time to post on the blog while I'm away.  That way you will still have some stamping projects to look at while I'm gone.  :-)

If you wish to place an order while I am away, please do so on my online store.  I will not be able to place orders for you while I'm away.  If you have any issues with orders, please send me an email and I will take care of them as soon as I get back.  

To stay up to date with any promotions that may begin while I'm away please check the SU Homepage (

Now on to today's card.  This card is 100% a CASE.  Sadly, I do not know who created this little gem! If it was you, please let me a comment so I can give you credit!  I had gone to an event my upline was holding and she had displays set up of the swaps she received at the Leadership event.  This card was one of them so I snapped a quick pic on my phone and recreated it at home.  Here is the picture of the card that I made for my cousin's birthday!

The Basic Black Decorative Label punch out was cut in half and used as wing on either side of the sentiment.  I like how the black really stands out against the white background.

Cardstock: Whisper White, Old Olive, Basic Black
Designer Series Paper: Polka Dot Parade
Stamps: Make a Wish
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Basic Black Stampin' Write Markers
