Reel Fun with Balloon Framelit

Hi Stampers,

I have had this card in my head for about a week. I should have made it last week for Grads & Dads week but just ran out of time. My husband, along with his love of beer, also LOVES to fish!! This is a perfect summer activity and today is the first day of summer!!!!


I made the bobber out of the retired balloon framelit. I cut a slit in the paper to place the bobber in. I also used "reel" fishing line too!!! LOL The sun is from the retired set Kinda Eclectic.

Hi Stampers,

One of my co-workers had to undergo an emergency tonsillectomy. I had to make a card for our department to sign. We are quite a large department with  55+ employees. My card might look kind of juvenile but I think it is cute and appropriate. I used the retired Party Pack punch (balloon) for her tonsils and the bell punch for her neck. 


I used 12 x 12 paper and cut it down to 5-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4". I glued the two pieces together to make it bigger.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #235-Mixed Drinks


Hi Stampers,

Back for a sketch pad challenge for the DOStamper Stars group. In keeping with today's theme, I made a Father's Day card for my hubby. He has worked so hard for this award card. He practices and practices to hone his skills and I am finally praising and recognizing him for his talent. I know he will appreciate this card and probably even get a little teary eyed when he sees it. 



I used Wink of Stella on the "suds" but it doesn't really show up.

I used the new Color Theory DSP and mini chevron ribbon along with the glitter enamel dots. The sentiment is part World's Best Trophy and Labeler Alphabet stamp sets. The World's Best Trophy stamp set you get 53 stamps!!! Well worth it's weight in gold IMO!!!

Father's Day Six Pack


Hi Stampers,

Today for my Grads & Dads blog post, I made a cute Father's Day six pack. That's right, my hubby's favorite---a six pack of beer!!! This card originated from the card I posted for Easter below.


Instead, I used the cute jar framelit and silver foil sheets to cut out the beer cans. TIP: When cutting out die cuts with the gold or silver foil I place a sheet of copy paper over it then place the cutting plate on top. Any marks you have on your cutting plate will not show through on the gold or silver foil paper. 

I also used the Foil Frenzy Speciality DSP again along with the new mini gift bows. BTW, I think these are SO ADORABLE!!! They are definitely one of my favorite new embellishments.


This card does fold flat and fits in a regular A2 envelope. However, with the gift bows I would probably hand deliver so they do not get ruined in the mail.


I used the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.


I also have a template for you to download for the measurements along with tutorial for the Easter Basket Card/Six Pack.

Graduation Twist Card


Hi Stampers,

Welcome back to Grads & Dads week. Today, I have a graduation card. I have been meaning to try this technique for so long and just thought I don't have the time. Actually, it is not time consuming at all but VERY ADDICTING!!! My head is spinning with all the ideas for cards using this technique. I am sure there are tons of names for it but I am calling it a Twist Card.


I used the new gorgeous foil frenzy speciality DSP from the new catalog. This paper is great for 3D projects--nice and thick!!! I also used the sentiment from Happy Celebrations. Open the card and this is what you see-the banner twists and opens to this:


Before I get a bunch of emails telling me I have lost my mind I think I better explain. LOL This is the first year in a very long time we have no openhouses!!! BUT-I know of at least 2 for next year so I used 2018. I cannot believe I already have a card made a year in advance!!! THAT NEVER HAPPENS!!!LOL

I hope you give this technique a try!! They are so fun to make!!

DOStamper Stars Card Swap-In The City

Hi Stampers,

In most Stampin' Up! groups, there is always swapping going on. What is a swap? A theme, color or stamp set is chosen for the group. You then create and make however many are in the group identical cards. In this instance, 13. You then send all your cards to the hostess of the swap who "swaps" them out and mails them back to you. When you receive them, you will have received 13 different cards; one from each swapper. Make sense?

What is great about participating in a swap, you get many cards of stamp sets you don't have to own so you can display them. Let's face it---you can't possibly afford to own all of the sets in the catalog!! I would love to but my wallet says NO. LOL

This is one I just participated in with the DOStamper Stars group. I used the hostess set In The City. This is such a versatile set with so many stamps!!! I needed a wedding card and hence, this is what I came up with.


I just love the little limo stamp!!!


Here's all of them before I mailed to the hostess


I hope this inspires you in some way!!! You can order everything to make this card from my online store.


 Thanks for stopping by!!!



Cool Treats

Hi Stampers,

This card went great with yesterday's weather here in Michigan. It was sunny and almost 90!!! Yikes!!! Too hot for me to be outside. At those temps, I either have to be in a pool or by a lake. Or in yesterday's case----in air conditioning!!!

The Cool Treats bundle is so cute. I am so happy that this set was carried over to the new annual catalog. I have seen so many fantastic cards made with this set. With summer here, I will be reaching for this set a lot!!!

You can now order this set now!!! The new catalog is LIVE!!! If you need a catalog please shoot me an email and I will get one to you!!!



Did you know you can order any of the products to make this card (with the exception of the retired dsp) from my website? Don't forget to go place your order now!!!

Thank you for visiting my blog!!!


Father Tom

Hi Stampers,

This year on April 22, my older brother Thomas was ordained as a priest. We are very proud of him and his love for God. Because we couldn't make it, of course I had to make him a card. Well, what do you make a priest? Looking through Pinterest was really of no help until I saw this shirt card. I just added the white collar. I used a retired Stampin' Up! stamp  set Trust God and stamped God Bless You on the inside. 




I hope I was able to inspire you in some way. This card format would be great for upcoming Father's Day. 

Thank you for visiting my blog!!


DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #232-Happy Celebrations


Hi Stampers,

What a colorful combo we have this week for our DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. I finally got to ink up a new set that was in the Occasions catalog and will be carried over to the new on June 1. I am always in need of birthday cards so that is what I went with.



You emboss first with the coordinating embossing folder and then stamp with the inks. They emboss quite deep. I noticed I did use a little too much pressure on my stamps and the ink got inside the grooves of the debossed area. Oh well. I'm still happy with it.

Don't forget you only have 6 more days to order from the Occasions catalog!!! Place your order now!!!
