Happy Birthday Debby!

Tag Talk

Today is my friend Debby’s birthday!  Debby is one of my Club members who has been with me for a very long time.  She makes the most beautiful cards and I love it when she shares them with me.

I made this card for her using the new Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Tag Talk.  It matches the Label Bracket Punch so all you have to do is stamp and punch!  You have to love it when you don’t have to cut something out.  I used the new Embossing Folder called Large Polka Dot and a piece of Designer Washi Tape from the Beach House collection.

Happy Birthday, Debby!  I hope your day is wonderful (and that your husband gives you something different than a tractor!)!

Fantastic You!

Fabulous Four

Sometimes I have a little trouble coming up with good color combinations.  This is where the Stampin’ Up! Color Coach is so useful.  I just look up a color on it and it gives me a couple of different options.  I would never have put Calypso Coral with Island Indigo but it doesn’t look too bad at all.

The stamp sets I used for this card are Fabulous Four and Petite Petals.  Petite Petals has a matching punch also called Petite Petals.  I used the new embossing folder called Large Polka Dot and finished off the flowers with some Candy Dots.  I do have to say, those are the best inventions.  You don’t need extra postage on your cards because they are not full brads.  Blog Signature-001

Flower Patch Club Card

Flower Patch

This is the second card we made at our monthly Club Meeting.  It uses the new Photopolymer Stamp Set called Flower Patch and the matching Framelits called Flower Fair.  Both of these sets (the stamps and the Framelits) have a lot of pieces to them.  The stamp set has 19 stamps and the Framelits have 11 pieces!  They are great to use together because you don’t have to fussy cut anything out.  The Framelits do that for you.

The background of this card was also made using a new Embossing Folder called Large Polka Dot.  The colors we used are Wisteria Wonder, Crisp Cantaloupe, Coastal Cabana, Old Olive and Crushed Curry.
