Finally had a day at home alone! Feeling fully recovered and truly in the mood to craft! Plus, I need Birthday Cards! Almost out! Yikes! That is not a good thing! Going to order some of the Sale-A-Bration birthday themed items today! WooHoo! There is some seriously cool stuff in the Occasions catalog for Birthdays! You can check it out Here.
But, before I do that, I wanted to show you a Thank You card that I did a tad differently than the last one in this style. I think I may like this one better! One of my favorite techniques is to do the “stamping off”, where you ink the stamp one time and then stamp it 2 or 3 times. In this case, I stamped it 2 times, with 2 different colors. I used the new In Colors from Stampin’ Up!- Dapper Denim and Sweet Sugarplum. The swish is from the stamp set Work of Art. Card base is the Sweet Sugarplum cardstock cut at 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 and scored at 5 1/2 to fold top down style. I used the 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper stack for the worded paper behind my sentiment. I also ran the sentiment through the Big Shot using the Softly Falling embossing folder. I just like how it came together! What do you think?
Now I am off to make Birthday cards with the Swirly Scribbles thinlits that I got from the Year-End closeout and haven’t gotten to use yet! I am so excited! I’ll post them as soon as I get them made!!
Materials used to make this card can be found Here, they include:
- Work of Art clear stamp set
- Dapper Denim and Sugarplum Ink pads
- 2016-2018 In Color Designer Series Paper
- Sweet Sugarplum cardstock
- Big Shot

Enjoy your Tuesday!
Yesterday I had to whip up a birthday card for the neighbor boy across the street that wants to be President some day! He was having a Patriotic Birthday Party! My son was invited. We gave him 2 books on President Lincoln, one of his favorite Presidents. His cake was a decorated as the American flag, so in keeping with that theme, I made this card for him. He turned 8.
I used a number of stamps from different sets. I started with Real Red cardstock for the base and Whisper White to stamp on. I used the Dapper Denim for the blue, and Real Red for the swash. The swash came from Work of Art, the star came from an old camping set called Under the Stars that I had on my counter, since I am working on a camping gift album. The ‘For You’ came from a Paper Pumpkin set, August or September of this year. I distressed the Whisper White cardstock with the Dapper Denim using a dauber.
I just kept it simple and stayed within the theme of his party. I like how it came out!
Enjoy your Monday!!

My leader, Darla, challenged our team to do this challenge…so here is mine…
Across the bottom…ribbon, embossing folder, and rhinestones. I also used the new In Colors Dapper Denim and Sweet Sugarplum. And I used one of my favorite techniques where you ink your stamp once and then stamp it 3 times without re-inking! Looks so cool, don’t you think?
