A Sweetie Pie Thank You

This girl is in Photopoly Stampin' Heaven!  I used the sweet little Sweetie Pie and Sweetie Pie Frames stamps to make this month's Thank You cards for my customers and I just can't be more pleased with the way they stamp!  Crisp and clear and they stick like crazy to our clear blocks.  No more stamps popping off and going skitty-wampus across the card and making a mess!

I picked the cute little curly haired girl, since she looks most like me right after a perm! 

The card begins with Pistachio Pudding cut at 6" x 3" and scored at 3".  The DSP is Sweet Sorbet from our Sale-a-Bration event that just ended and is now retired.  I stamped the girl with Baked Brown Sugar and the Frame and Thank You with Crisp Cantaloupe on Whisper White card stock and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Super simple!

Thank you for looking in today.  If you can't wait to get your hand on these Sweetie Pie stamps, just click the pictures below to go directly to my store!  I look forward to having you as a customer, then you too will receive a little thank you card from me, made especially for you!

Here Comes Peter Cotton Tail

Here is another Easter Card I worked on this past weekend.  This one will be going to a young man who just moved to Kentucky with his Mom and Dad.  It will be his first Easter where there could actually be beautiful green grass to hunt the eggs.  Unless it snows again, that is!  From dry Arizona desert to beautiful seasons!

You can find instructions for using the Elegant Butterfly for making the Bunny Ears HERE from my Easter Bunny Mini-Cups.

The next two cards are Linda's rendition of my card.  She had some great old DSP with clouds on it so she used it for the background (don't tell her the clouds are upside down on the boy card though... *wink*).

The zig zag watercolor wonder DSP is just perfect for an Easter Egg, don't you think?  So cute!

She'll be sending these to her niece's and nephews.

Thank you for looking in today.  If you have any last minute bunny cards to make, these are fast and easy and I hope you'll enjoy making them as much as we did!

Happy Hump Day!

Blessed Easter

Just when you think you're done with a specific holiday, you need some last minute cards... that's where I was this weekend.

I have to say, I'm really tickled with how this turned out.  Click on the picture to see it bigger.  You'll see that I stamped extra tulips and after coloring them I cut them out with my paper snips and popped them up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I also popped up the Wisteria Wonder framelit with Dimensionals.

Stamp the tulips with StazOn Black ink and color in with our Blender Pens by dipping into the top of your ink pad (after squeezing it together to put some ink on the lid).  Ask me how if this is something new to you.  I love to watercolor this way.  So soft and pretty!

Thank you for looking in today.  Check the chart below to see what was used to make this card and you can click on any item and it will take you to my store to shop.  I look forward to being your Stampin' Up! Representative!

More Cute Little Tribbles!

I still love this cute little card I cased from my Upline - Lorri Heiling!  I changed embossing folder since Sale-a-Bration is now over and the great little folder I used before is no longer available.  Although I still love it and will be using it.  Maybe it will end up in the new Annual Catalog on June 1st.

This card is for my step-Daughter, Jennifer.  I don't think she reads my blog, so I think I'm safe to post it.  LOL.  We're going out to lunch for her birthday today (Sunday) and I'll be giving it to her then.  I wanted the inside to be happy birthday, but I also wanted it to be fun, so I put my brain in gear and came up with the insides below.

Now, I bet you are thinking, "I don't think I've seen that stamp before."  and you'd be right, sort of.  The "you can never have too much happy" comes from Yippee Skippee and the "birthday" comes from Remembering Your Birthday.  The "birthday" is actually Happy Birthday, but I only inked up the "Birthday" and lined it up under the "Happy".  Awesome!

The cute little critter is actually a pretty little flower turned upside down from Simple Stems.  Cute!

Do you ever wonder what colors to put together to make the perfect combination?  The answer... COLOR COACH!

For this card I started with the ribbon, it is Pear Pizzazz.  So I pulled out the Color Coach and looked up Pear Pizzazz and as you can see from below, the Creative Combination is Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry and Tempting Turquoise.  Perfect!

Thank you for looking in today.  Have a wonderful day!
