Number Of Years

Number Of Years, Happy Birthday Everyone

I love it when Stampin’ Up! has a stamp set that can be used in a lot of different ways.  One of these sets is called Number Of Years and is in the new 2016 Occasions Catalog.  This stamp set has large numbers 0-9 as well as the ordinals (nd, st, th, rd) and some cute sentiments.  It also has some two step stamping flowers.  Two step is where you use two or more stamps to make an image.  The flowers I used in this card are two step stamps.  The leaves and branches are one set and the flowers were actually 3 different stamps.

The big Happy Birthday stamp is from a hostess set called Happy Birthday Everyone. You can only buy this set with a qualifying order(s) of $150 or more.

Another Your Presents

Your Presents, Happy Birthday Everyone

Wow.  It is hard to believe how quickly 2015 went.  What a year it was!  Madelyn, my first grand child was born!  There is nothing better than being a grandparent.  It is just awesome!

I know I have used this stamp set called Your Presents a lot lately but I can’t help myself.  I love it.  It is just one of those sets that can used for years to come.  It is not trendy and will never go out of style.  It retires on January 5th and I want to remind everyone that if they want it, they need to order it before it is gone forever.

The happy birthday sentiment is a Hostess Set from the 2015 Annual Catalog.  It can only be purchased with a qualifying order of $150 or more.  It can be one person’s order or a group order as long as the order reaches that amount.

Happy New Year, everyone!

A Washi Butterfly

Washi Tape, Happy Birthday Everyone

I made this card for my friend, Sherry.  Yesterday she had a big birthday.  I mean BIG BIRTHDAY!  I won’t tell you how big but just know it was BIG!  The good thing is she is still very young at heart.

I thought this Happy Birthday stamp would be perfect for her BIG birthday since, well, it is a big stamp!  It is from a hostess set that is in the Annual Catalog called Happy Birthday, Everyone.  You can only buy this set if you either host a party that has $150 in sales or make a purchase of $150 or more.

I cut out the butterfly using the Butterflies Thinlits.  Then I lightly traced around it onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock so I could correctly place the Washi Tape.

I hope you had an awesome birthday, Sherry!

Happy Birthday, Everyone

Happy Birthday Everyone

This card uses a hostess stamp set from Stampin’ Up called Happy Birthday, Everyone!  It is a great set to own.  I love the large Happy Birthday stamp that comes with it.  The only thing is there is good news and bad news associated with the set.  The bad news is you can’t just outright buy this set.  In order to be able to purchase it, you have to either have an order that is $150 or more (you can do that by yourself or you can get some friends to place an order with you) or you can have a stampin’ party.  You have to earn Stampin’ Rewards to purchase this.  If you are interested in learning more, feel free to contact me.

Somehow Madelyn got her hands out of the swaddle.  It makes her look so sweet and innocent (which she is!!).

Happy Birthday Everyone!

Happy Birthday Everyone

This is another card we made at our monthly Club Meeting.  I love this card because it shows off so many of the new products in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog.  First, there is the awesome hostess stamp set called Happy Birthday, Everyone.  You can only get this set with an order of $150 or more.  Remember you don’t have to order alone to make this goal.  You can get some friends to place an order together and then earn this set.

I also used a new Embossing Folder called Brick Wall (surprisingly enough!).  This folder is larger than our regular folders.  It is actually 6″ x 6″ so you can emboss a larger piece of card stock.  Lastly, but certainly not least, we used the new Banner Triple Punch to make the banners.  It is so easy to do.  If you like banners you need to get this punch.  It is amazing!

It’s A Wild Happy Birthday

It's Wild, Happy Birthday Everyone

Stampin’ Up! has some new background stamps that are lots of fun.  One of them is called It’s Wild and it is a big bold zebra striped stamp.  Background stamps are great for adding color and designs to a card without using Designer Series Paper.  This card was super easy to make. I stamped the background using Watermelon Wonder, a new In Color.

Then I used the hostess set called Happy Birthday, Everyone for the sentiment.  You can only get this stamp set from purchasing $150 of product by yourself or with some friends.  If you do that, you can get the stamp set for as little as $9 in Stampin’ Rewards.
