     I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Stampin' Up demonstrators and other individuals who have shared techniques on You Tube.  As you can see on this blog I am learning so much from you!  Thanks so much!

    I made this group of 5 birthday cards using Stampin' Up Field Flower stamp set with Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Up ink for the flowers and Old Olive for the stems.  The bases are from Recollections yellow card stock.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up Love Label stamp and punch set.  Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie ink was used for the sentiment pieces.  

    Here are 2 tea match books I made for Christmas gifts.  I love making these for people! 

Joy fold Christmas card

     I really enjoyed making this joy fold Christmas card.  I learned the technique on You Tube and want to thank the person who came up with the idea!  I love it!

    I made this sample Christmas card for a set of 5 pre-assembled kits for my friend to make.

This is a birthday card I made last month.  I really like the paper clip bicycle on it.

Sympathy card

    This is a sympathy card I made last night.  It is made big enough for a group of people to sign.

Recollections ivory color shimmer paper for picture and label. 
Stampin' Up Whisper White card stock for mat 
Stampin' Up Hostess Simply Sketched stamps 
Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie ink for the top part of the picture

     This is a waterfall card for a 50th Anniversary.  The squares each have decades from 10  to 40 and the long piece says "Golden Anniversary" with two small gold hearts at the end.  I loved doing this for friends of ours who are celebrating 50 years of marriage tomorrow!  It was so much fun to design and put together for them!  The card base is brown paper from Recollections, The lighter paper is champagne color shimmer paper from Recollections embossed with Cuttlebug Swirl embossing folder.  The brown 3/4" x 4" piece is adhered with heart shaped brads. Inside the card are two embossed gold hearts on the bottom left side.

This is a Christmas card using the A Round Array Stamp set, rhinestones and sentiment from Stampin' Up.  I'm sorry I do not know what set the sentiment is as it was pre-stamped when I received the kit. The card stock is also from Stampin' Up. 

     Here is a collection of 5 cards on yellow card stock bases.  They are stamped with Stampin' Up Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Classic inks.  I used the Field Flower stamp set and Love Label stamp sets from Stampin' Up.   

  This card was made for a young boy.  I'm sorry  the top edge was cut off in the picture.  I sponged it with blue ink for sky and antique linen distress ink for the bottom half.  There is a piece of gray card stock for the road with a bicycle paper clip.  The sun was stamped with Daffodil Delight ink (Stampin' Up) on yellow card stock.  The picture was adhered to a rust color card stock (Recollections).
