This is the card that wlil be good for any age...guys or the ladies..

& a bit closer...

This is one of those super cute sets with a mouse, walrus, gerbils, & XXXXX--it's great for guys, gals, kids, & teens! A really good one to have in your stash.

The background here is the Painted Texture embossing folder....gives some texture but doesn't overpower your focal point which is relatively small on this card.  

Now if we are sending this to a guy we may want to substitute another color for the Pretty in Pink--so we could go with Daffodil Delight or Coastal Cabana for a more male appeal.

The verse can be switched out with any of the other verses in this stamp set t0 fit your occasion--just measure the sentiment and cut the white cardstock to fit.  Another technique for this is to stamp the sentiment on white cardstock then cut out with your Paper Snips--you can even cut out the words separately or in phrases with rough cuts (not precise rectangles) and postion them randomly to give it a less formal appearanced.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.

Stop by Thursday to see what we're creating with this set!

Designing a Beautiful Birthday Card with Poised Peony Stamp Set

Today we're Designing a Beautiful Birthday Card with Poised Peony Stamp Set. Tuesday we used this same set for a pretty little All Occasions card--if you missed it check it out here Click here to see Tuesday's card.

This set is one of those simple beauties with three frequently used greetings--"hello," " birthday" and "in my thoughts." These verses can cover just about any occasion or situation you may encounter. And, as we mentioned Tuesday the script is a perfect match to the line drawings of our images.

Here's todays creation...

Small

And a bit closer look...

Small cu

One of my new favorite color combos is Navy and Yellow and one of my favorite new yellows is Lemon Lolly...so this card displays them both quite nicely.

The background of navy and white designer series paper is from the Mediterranean Blooms DSP. Amazingly this set of paper has a gorgeous array of yellows, oranges, and navy on one side and the other side of all of the designs is a wonderful set of Night of Navy and white. Some of the images are quite large and others, like these, are relatively small. This gives us a selection of patterns that coordinates very well.

We've used some of the new Gold & Silver Trim Combo to enhance the small flower. It's approximately 1/8" wide.

The embellishment dots are the Opal Rounds Assortment in the Mediterranean Blooms Suite of products. We rarely have Navy embellishments so I was particularly happy to see these--a perfect enhancement for our yellow & navy card.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.

Creating an All Occasion Card Using Stampin'Up! Poised Peony

Today we're Creating an All Occasion Card Using Stampin'Up! Poised Peony stamp set.  This little cutie can be easily missed in the new Stampin'Up Annual Catalog on page 28. Sometimes our eyes get drawn to the colorful images and we simply miss something else.

Here is the stamp set...

And a bit closer.

If you enjoy coloring this is one of those line images on which you can use those Blends to shade a bit--the petals lend themselves quite nicely to shading....and, if not, then just color with one of the blends and it will look lovely also.

One feature I love with this set is the perky script that is just perfect with these line drawings--it really coordinates quite nicely.

The Country Lace Designer paper peeping from behind the focal point adds just that touch of interest that makes the card grab your attention instead of fading into the background.

Check out that fantastic embossing folder--Dashing Designs 3D embossing folder--isn't that the perfect background.

Then we topped it all off with the 2024-2026 In Color Glimmer Gems...sparkle, shine and matching color (Petunia Pop)!

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.

Creating Another Easy Card for Men, Teens, & Kids with Adventurous Sky Bundle

Today we're Creating Another Easy Card for Men, Teens, & Kids with the Adventurous Sky Bundle. Last Tuesday we created a card great for all occasions...if you missed it check it out here Click here to see Tuesday's card.

As we mentioned Tuesday this is a brand new set in the Stampin'Up! new Annual catalog--if you don't have a copy contact me and we'll arrange to get a copy to you ([email protected]).

This is the stamp set we're playing with this week...

Here's today's simple & quick card...

 

Circle

& a bit closer...

Circle cu

We designed the 'frame' using a stitched circle (Stylish Shapes) to open up the 'plane in the sky' view.  Setting the clouds and plane on the Boho blue layer underneath provides all we need for a beautiful sky setting.

Note the embossed top white layer. This was created with the Metal Plate embossing folder that we used on Tuesday's card. But it certainly has a different appearance, doesn't it? That's because we turned it to the 'backside' after embossing with the folder and we get a 'pillow' type of embossing.  This nicely embeds the sky scene we created.

We used the birthday greeting but this card also lends itself to one of those designs that you can create several for your stash and just add the appropriate greeting when you need the card.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.

Stop by next week to see what we're creating!

2 planes

& the closer up view

2 planes cu

This is a super design that can use a variety of greetings---one of those cards that you can have several in your stash to put on the greeting needed at the time you need to send it.

The embossing on the card front is the Metal Plate folder--just enough "maleness" to be perfect for matching the designer paper.

This DSP (a new one) is Take to the Sky.  The section in this card is one of those on the sheet with multiple ready to use pieces you just simply cut from the sheet and use as a layer--ready to go.

Here's the complete set

This is the sheet from which we cut the diamond Boho layer in the upper right corner..there are several terrific pieces ready to go plus 6 tags at the bottom of this sheet.
