Animal Outing Stampin' Up Ginny Harrell Birthday cards

Today I am sharing a card created using the Animal Outing stamp set. A few weeks ago a friend asked me to make a card for her sister’s birthday. Her only request was that it have an animal on it. Out came this stamp set and the rhino made the cutest card. What do you think? I like it. He is such a cutie.

This is a new stamp set and new Designer Series Paper. Love new toys.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy Stamping!

Springtime Foils & Stampin’ Blends

Happy Monday, Stamping Friends. I am back today with an easy WOW card for you to create. Springtime Foils is one of the new Sale-a-bration free items. This Designer Series Paper is shiny and smooth and oh so pretty. It makes lovely cards when left plain, but WOW cards when you color it with Stampin’ Blends.

Here are my cards:

Blends Coloring Tips

Tips for adding color: Start with the lightest color and add the darker highlights. Go back over it with the lighter color to blend and smooth the colors. The more you work with the colors the prettier it looks. Because this DSP is smooth you can even go back over the colors a few hours later. I found that waiting for the colors to blend and dry was helpful. Then you can go back and smooth the colors out if needed. The sentiment can be placed wherever you want. I looked at the flower to leaf balance and then decided where to place the sentiment.

Do you love these cards?

I sure do. So much so I have already mailed the birthday cards to friends!

Stampin’ Up! Product List

Beautiful Day and Beautiful Vacation

Case the Catalog

We are still enjoying our vacation, so it seems a good time to share a card using BeautifuI Day stamp set. Our vacation has been beautiful. I wished for snow and I got it. Actually, we almost had too much snow as it got sort of slippery. 

Casing the catalog is one of my favorite ways to get out of a card making slump. You can take the catalog design and copy exactly, or you can use the design to inspire you to create something entirely new. Do you ever CASE the Catalog? 

Here is my take on the card on page 26 of the 2018 Occasions Catalog. You can use the Blends pens to color the flower or use Brusho for a different look. Either way both cards come out lovely.

Change the cardstock color and get a different card! To create this card you will use Cherry Cobbler Blends.

For the second card  you will use Rich Razzleberry Blends.

Which is you favorite color?

 Stampin’ Up has provided a video on how to use the Brusho on this card. I love how they give us so much information and inspiration on how to re-create their designs or as a starting point for our personal crafting. Enjoy!

Our time in Paris is about to come to an end. My husband is already trying to figure out how to get us back sometime soon! Can you tell we both love living in Paris? I am almost ready to be at home and get back in my craft room. I am also ready to have my own bed and pillow. Those little creature comforts we all enjoy!

Below are some photos of our trip. The snow is so pretty.
