Multifold Birthday Card

I found a tutorial online and recently made a mulifold birthday card. Mine is a bit different but very close to the one I saw online. I used my papers a bit differently and got ahead of myself and had to edit my card to make it work. But I think you get the gist of it. It is tied shut and it hold a giftcard!

Enjoy Life with Share What You Love DSP

Have I mentioned how happy I am that this stamp set carried over from the Occasions mini catalog? It is a great set with so many looks. This card uses the candle stamps (the same ones that also make the blowers). Add a flame and they are candles!

Dragonfly Dreams

I have been outside kayaking a lot lately with my hubby and there are so many dragonflies here near the lake. I had one sit on my foot the other day and take a ride with me. It was such a pretty blue thing. Anyway, it was my inspiration for this card.

Enjoy Life with Share What You Love DSP

I finally got around to opening and acutally cutting my new DSP. I am such a DSP hog. I never want to use it! I am really going to try to do better this year! I made this card using some of the products that were available for pre-order and now are in the catalog. One cool thing about this package of DSP, besides that it is so large, is that it goes with 13 colors of card stock! This one features Blackberry Bliss but I could have used any of those other colors using the same layout!

PP400 - A Celebration Theme Challenge with Jaydee

I am today playing with this challenge. I have been gone as in out of the country for a week and enjoyed a bit of scuba diving (20 dives). I had to wait for week 2 of the challenge to play along. I made a Dragonfly Dreams card for this challenge using some retired SAB glitter paper and it took me a while to piece it together but the results are stunning (IMHO). Enjoy.

Swirly Bird

I had the Swirly Bird out for a challenge and decided to make another card while I had it out. I cased one from an older catalog changing the colors. It is so bright and cheery!

Another Daisy Delight

I made one more Daisy Card using just current products. I really think this stamp set is a keeper for so many occasions. This one is a thank you card for a friend. The senitment and the flowers are all from the same set so it has extra value in my book. Colors used: Whisper White, Old Olive, Momento Black and Berry Burst (stamped off for diffent colors).

Daisy Delight

This is such and easy layout. I could literally do lots of cards with almost any image with this layout. This one uses some retired DSP but he images are all relevant. No sentiment so it could be used for any occasion. I love the Night of navy cording. Colors used are: Whisper White, Garden Green, Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight.

My annual 4th of July card

Well, I make one every year. This year I have literally nothing that looks like fireworks so I improvised. I started with Real Red card stock and added stripes using the silver sequin trim. The start box is Night of Navy with white glitter paper stars. Quick and easy.

One More Bubble Over

I will be showing just one more Bubble Over and that is all of that one for a while (I think). It is a fun and versatile set. Too bad the DSP has not returned. This one uses the In Color Lemon Lime Twist and I used the DSP and the framelets to cut out the bubbly bottle. I added a little Dazzling Diamonds to the bubbles to make them fizz!

Stamping Like Crazy!

I have been stamping like a crazy woman since last week. I guess I have made more than 40 different cards since last week. I am not working much this summer and I have lots of time on my hands. Today I spent the whole day trying to find my new In Color markers (never found them). I am thinking I did not notice they were absent from my order! Oops! I will call SU tomorrow. They are so good to us!

I will be showing another Bubble Over card today. I am still using the recently retired DSP but it is still so handy!  This card features the sparkly ribbon left over from Sale-A-Bration also. It goes pretty well with the Calypso Coral card stock.

More Lilypad Lake (with egrets)

This is the last one for the month of June (I think). I cannot seem to get my fill of this wonderful set. If you live near a lake then this is a definite for you!
