Sometimes I get so caught up in the new catalogs and how much I love all the products, that I forget about the stamp sets in the Stampin Up! Annual Catalog. I was looking through my sets and found the set I used on this card. It is called Sea Street and is a perfect set to use for a masculine card or anyone who loves anything nautical. It has a lobster, crab, star fish, an anchor and a school of fish. I think it is really cute and I love the nautical flags that are included too. It is usually the set I use when Rob needs a card for some reason. He is a sailor so it is fitting.

This is the second card we made during our monthly Club meeting. It uses the stamp set called Four Feathers that is in the Holiday Catalog. This set has matching Framelits called Feathers Framelits Dies. You can save 15% by purchasing both as a bundle! The sentiment is from Hey You and is in the Annual Catalog. It is one of those hidden stamps (it is hard to see on the page) that I found and use quite often. There are three stamps in the set. The other two say Thank You and Congrats. Perfect for just about any occasion! I also used Bermuda Bay Bakers Twine.
I have a few friends who have birthdays in late November or December. One thing they all have in common. They do not like their birthday presents wrapped in Christmas paper and they don’t like Christmas themed birthday cards. I can’t really blame them. If their birthday was in April or June, they would not have their presents wrapped with Christmas wrap. Well, maybe they wouldn’t. I do remember wrapping my son David’s birthday present in Christmas wrapping paper but in my defense it was a double sided paper with a plaid on one side and Christmas trees on the other. I did use the plaid.
I made this card using Kinda Eclectic, Beautiful Bunch and Hey You stamp sets. All three of them are in the annual catalog so no worries about using Christmas themed stamps!
I know it is not summer. It is not even close to being Spring but I think you can use flowers year round. I used the stamp set called Beautiful Bunch to make this card. It has a matching punch called Fun Flower so you don’t need to cut it out by hand (because we all know how much I love doing that!). I think I must have failed cutting in Kindergarten because I am just not very good at it. No worries though! Stampin’ Up! makes so many matching punches, Framelits and Thinlits that there is no need to hand cut anything! Perfect!
This is one of the cards we made at our monthly stamp club meeting. It uses a new stamp set called Beautiful Bunch which has a matching punch called Fun Flower. We stamped the flower using Hello Honey ink on Hello Honey cardstock. The leaves were stamped with Old Olive and then cut out to look like leaves instead of flower petals. The Whisper White background was made using the Party Pennants Bigz L Die. This die has two shapes that look like this, one being smaller than this one. It also has two rounded edge shapes. You can use it to make a banner too!
Today is the birthday of a friend of mine (Sherry). I think I am still being a little rebellious about the change of season because I made her a summery birthday card. The colors started out as good colors for Fall but then I felt it needed a little pop so I added the Melon Mambo flowers. The kind of blew the Fall color idea. In any case, this is a simple one layer card. The sentiment is from the stamp set called Hey You. I honestly have no clue why it is named that, but in any case, it is one of those sets that is easily overlooked. It is on page 103 of the Annual Catalog and it is shown at 50% of it’s real size. Stampin’ Up! usually shows all their stamp sets at full size but for some reason this one is smaller. It is a great size for cards so check it out and remember it is really bigger than it looks.
Happy Birthday Sherry! I hope you have a wonderful day!
