Stampin’ Up! Saturday, Up Up and Away

Hello fellow stampers.  I hope you have a nice Easter weekend.  It’s going to be a busy one for me.  I worked today and came home to a family birthday.  I had so much fun putting together birthday presents for a step-granddaughter and step-daughter.

Tomorrow is Easter Sunday and I managed to take the day off of work to spend with family.  Al and I are making a big turkey dinner for my aunt, uncle and cousin.  Unfortunately my daughter lives 8 hours away and my son picked up a shift at work so it will be a small gathering.

I’ve been stamping a lot over the past couple of months.  Having this Stampin’ Up! set for quite some time, I decided to make a card for a variety of occasions.  I now tend to make 4 to 8 cards at a time because I already know the dimensions and have the dies/stamps out.  I stamped several sentiments on the inside–for congratulations, lifting me up, etc.  It is a very versatile stamp and die set.

I used River Rock paper and ink pad, and Real Red for the “Love.”

How are you spending Easter?  I’d love to hear from you.

Whoop Whoop, it’s the weekend.  Time to stamp!

Using Stampn’ Up’s Thoughts and Prayers set, I created 8 cards for my sympathy stash.

Here is a close up of one that I added buttons for the hand-delivered card.

Stampn Up Saturday – Tasty Trucks

The moment I saw this card I knew I had to CASE it and following the directions so generously supplied.  I’m always looking for unique cards to make my family and friends.  This one has an acetate window that I stamped Congratulations on it as this card is made for my daughter and son-in-laws wedding anniversary.

Why an ice cream truck you ask?  Well, they had a green ice cream truck waiting for us on the hot August wedding when we came out of the church.  Free ice cream for everyone.

I’m sure they are going to wonder if they will receive a card, other than an ice cream truck, for their anniversary, but I like the reminder of the fun we had.

At 2:00 this afternoon Al and I will be married outdoors in Niagara Falls, nestled in the woods with a small wooden chapel. Photos to follow.

Thanks for stopping by.

Stampn Up Saturday – Feathery Friends RAK

One of the stamp sets I wanted so, so bad was a hostess set and I never had a party.  I just attend them.  Well, my on-line friend Tina Zinck,of The Serene Stamper, who is an independent Stampn Up Demonstrator, gifted me with this stamp set, along with a card she made in this Eclipse video.  I am so blessed to have such a dear on-line friend.  The cool thing is she is Canadian, like me.  So if you’re looking for a demonstrator I would recommend using Tina.

This is the card I made using this stamp set, and I made five of these cards. and two similar thank you ones.

Thanks for stopping by

Stampn’ Up! Saturday, Lighthearted Leaves

Hello folks!  I had so much fun colouring my two cards using Stampn’ Up!s Lighthearted Leaves.  I used Copic markers to colour this time.  I used Technique Junkie Newsletters Modern Grid technique from April 2007.  I remember working on that technique for the newsletter and oh my how the time flies–it seems like yesterday Pat introduced us to this technique.  You can click on the highlighted words above to be taken to the technique.

Thanks for stopping by!

It’s a beautiful day

Hello fellow stampers and card makers.  Today I have a card to share with you that I made at a recent Stampn’ Up! cardmaking class.  I love the beautiful designer paper and how nice the sentiment coordinates.

Because I didn’t write down what products were used, I can’t tell you what they are.  So sorry.

Enjoy your weekend.

Stampn’ Up! Saturday – Baby Bear

*SCS Weekly Favorite

Hi folks.  Are you in love with this Baby Bear stamp set as much as I am?  I paired it with Technique Junkies Love Harlequin background stamp that you can get for 10% off just by using my code TJ10Beth.  I like this card so much that I plan to make ten more of them.  The girls at work are always after me for cards.

I made this card for my granddaughter’s first birthday.  She isn’t walking quite yet, and threw away her smash cupcake. She was not impressed with it at all.  Here are some photos of my children with Charlotte.

 

Proud mama, Sarah, with Charlotte.

Proud Uncle Adam with Charlotte.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend.
