Hello Sunshine

I'm having so much fun with the "Sunshine Wishes" thinlit! For this project, I also incorporated the new "Swirly Scribbles" thinlit as well. (I'm keeping my Big Shot busy!) These fun flower bursts on a white card stock background really make them pop! I used the water color technique on the "sunshine" cut out again for the ombre color. This simple, but bright card, would brighten anyone's day!

Happy Birthday Beth!

One of my zoo friends is having a birthday today, and over the weekend in my crafting free time I decided to make her a birthday card and coordinating 3D treat. The "Confetti Celebration" stamp set is such a fun birthday stamp set. It's been a while since I've really had a birthday stamp set that I'm excited to play with, but this one is so fun I had a lot of great ideas when I ordered it.

This shaker card is easy to make, but still gives off a fun "wow" factor for the recipient. To learn to make your own, check out Stampin' Up!'s official YouTube video tutorial. I took Stampin' Up!'s example from the catalog and added some Bermuda Bay to it and changed the ribbon to coordinate. Since I don't have the new Sprinkles punch, I improvised and punched stars from a retired small star punch.

No birthday card is complete without a coordinating 3D treat! I love the new Popcorn Box Thinlit. I bagged up some peanut M&M's for my friend to finish it off! Happy Birthday Beth!

Sending Sunshine and Hugs

I recently had a good amount of time to spend in my craft room, and new product lent itself nicely to new ideas and creativity. It's nice to get the juices flowing again, and not for any sort of agenda other than to be creative on my own pace. :)

One of the first things that I found in the new Stampin' Up! catalog that screamed "MUST HAVE" is the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies and coordinating stamp set "Sunshine Sayings." I am in love with the word cut outs from the thinlit die, and took Stampin' Up!'s idea from the catalog and used the water color technique onto the "sunshine" cut out to add an "ombre" faded look to the word. In fact, this card is an example of a CASE (Copy and Share Everything)--I just tweaked the colors of their example, but it's basically the same thing.

A Flamingo Day

Stampin' Up! has a brand new catalog as of June 1, and it's jammed full of awesome new goodies! One stamp set that is quickly becoming a favorite of mine is "Pop of Paradise." I've been seeing flamingo stuff all around, and this stamp set lends itself to some really cute stamping projects.

These projects are what we created in my most recent stamp club night a few weeks ago. The French fry die cut was retiring so I wanted to get one more project in with it. To add a little cohesiveness to the envelope, I just added some of the "Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack" to the flap.
