Happy Birthday! Big Day!

1 crafts 2015-02-23 019

Today’s card is my favorite of the cards that a few gals created this past weekend at my Birthday Bash Stamp Camp. Adding a bit of glitz and glam are what take this card up a few notches however, the overall design is super simple! I may have edited this photo a bit too much because the full card below is definitely more true to the real card. I’m sorry! I used the Coastal Cabana DSP from the 2013-2015 In-Color Paper Stack.

One of the best things about this card? The stamps! I got this “Big Day” stamp set for FREE with the current Sale-A-Bration promotion.

Blendabilities are the star of this show. I used a few different sets to color the cake image and the sentiment. The cool part?! I used darkest shade of the Coastal Cabana Blendabilities to color 2 large rhinestones that “hold” my sentiment in place. I love these darn Blendabilities. They make creating matching elements a breeze!

PERSONAL UPDATE:  I am sorry for what seemed like I took a vacation. I had a lot going on in my little ole world over here.

  • My kids are finally all better and went to school all week last week. Whew!
  • We did some car shopping last week and finally got a new one. I am super happy. I got a SUV (we got rid of our OLD yucky van)!
  • YAY! My daughter’s 10th birthday is this week. Eeek! I can NOT believe she is going to be 1-0 in just 2 short days! We all say it but, really how does time fly this fast? We are doing our first Slumber Party this weekend. Oh boy–lots of screaming young ladies–that my hubby is not looking forward to, LOL.

All in all everything is going well and busy and I am getting back into the swing of things! I hope that all is well with you!

In keeping with the style of this card. I am going to keep this post quick!

But, in case you are wondering, here’s my update on the kids: Jacob is finally back on his feet–whew, it only took 5 WHOLE days! And, Allison came down with the same bug late Tuesday evening. This nasty stuff comes on without a real warning. It just happens. She is doing better today (but, I have learned that this bug likes to play tricks on your body…one minute you are alright and the next your tummy hurts). I can not wait to be FREE of this yuckiness!

I hope that you and your family have avoided this stomach bug all together because it is NOT fun!

Have a wonderful *heart* day!! 137779S

Eat MORE Cake; One Tag Fits All by Stampin’ Up!

1 crafts 2015-01-12 003

I am having some more fun with this One Tag Fits All stamp set. I have said it already but, really this set is versatile. I have already created 2 birthday, 1 thank you, and 2 Valentine cards with this set. If you think about I have already paid for the set if you figure I would have had to spend $3 to $4 to purchase just ONE card (and I have to say that MY cards are better than a “store” bought one-that’s my opinion).

I created this card with a simple design in mind. With minimal embellishments I believe I still conquered a cute and stylish card.

Instructions:

  1. Cut Bermuda Bay cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″ and score at 5 1/2″.
  2. Run a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece Pumpkin Pie cardstock through the Big Shot with the Decorate Dots embossing folder.
  3. Layer that embossed cardstock onto a piece of 3 3/8″ x 5 1/8″ Whisper White. Next, adhere those layers to the card base.
  4. Cut a piece of Designer Paper to 3 3/4″ x 3″ and adhere that over the embossed cardstock. Add a 3/8″ x 3″ piece of Coastal Cabana to cover the seam. Place two Candy Dots on the ends (they look like brads!)
  5. Stamp the “eat cake” image onto Whisper White cardstock, color image with Blendabilites then, punch it out with the Note Tag Punch. Punch another tag out of Coastal Cabana cardstock. Adhere those tags together slightly off center so that the blue sticks out on the left side of the white tag.
  6. Use dimensionals to adhere the tag to the card.

You have a completed card unless you decide to continue and add a little stamping to the inside of your card! 🙂

I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! Below are the supplies that I used to complete this project.

Happy Saturday!!  I have a quick post for you today on a simple Christmas card.
You will be able to crank out a bunch of these in no time!
Supplies you will need:
  1. Cut your Crumb Cake cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″ (score @5 1/2″).  Cut your Whisper White layer to 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  2. Punch a 2″ circle in lower right of card.
  3. Stamp your snowflakes on both the card base and the inside layer.  I set my layer inside to see where I wanted to stamp those snowflakes.
  4. With your card closed stamp through the hole on the front to get your sentiment where you want it being careful not to move it while stamping.  I didn’t attach it just in case I messed up (then I could flip it over and use the other side).
