Best Dad Ever Father's Day card

Best Dad Ever Father’s Day Card

Best Dad Ever Father's Day card Just stopping by for a few minutes to share this ‘Best Dad Ever’ bowtie Father’s Day card from Stampin’ Up!  You can find all the details here.  I hope this will inspire you to remember the dads in your life this weekend.

I’m traveling today so not much time to write.  As I mentioned yesterday, I drove to Nashville to be here for my niece’s bridal shower earlier in the week and I was supposed to have gone home two days ago, but my family just kept talking me into staying just one more day!  Before I knew it I had been here all week and I’ve got to get home and back to work!

It’s been so fun being here.  We have watched movies, visited and played a lot of Settlers of Catan.

Have you played Settlers of Catan?  It’s addictive!  It starts out slow but pretty quickly it starts to get really interesting and then it’s over, which just makes you want to play again.  We changed the rules a little though because we were too competitive and it caused problems.  I’ve known families that stopped playing it because it was causing so much animosity.  So I came up with new rules that we adopted that make it a more friendly game.  We do not use the robber at all and I’m sure purists wouldn’t approve of my new rules.  Not using the robber does change the ability to stop someone who is racing ahead but in the spirit of family fun, the changes are worth it.

OK, enough about all that.  Have a wonderful weekend with the fathers in your life and don’t forget to get that hand-stamped Father’s Day card made!  Do it today before you forget.  What are you doing for Father’s Day?

Mosaic Madness Bridal Shower Gift Card

label love mosaic madness gift card

I cannot even tell you how much fun I had playing with these new products!!! Label Love and Mosaic Madness stamp sets with the matching embossing folder and punches, and new colors – Crisp Cantaloupe, Smoky Slate, Pistachio Pudding, and Coastal Cabana.

Remember my cute niece Danideej from here, here and here. She’s getting married!!  I went to Nashville, Tennessee, to attend her bridal shower, and I wanted a special card to include with her gift. I made this card with Danielle in mind.

label love mosaic madness gift card

This card measures 4-1/4″ square. The white panel is 4″ square and embossed with the Modern Mosaic embossing folder.  I always trim out my panel first before embossing.  If you do it the other way around, you run the risk of damaging the embossing while you’re trimming – so cut first.

I also decorated a standard-sized envelope to match the card by stamping Crisp Cantaloupe three times without reinking which created this shaded design.

This cute, clean card is easy to make with the matching stamps and punch.  I simply stamp the mosaics in the colors I wanted and quickly punch them out and adhered them to the embossed background. Easy peasy!

By stamping the Label Love ‘just for you’ twice in Smoky Slate and Crisp Cantaloupe and then punching and trimming, I made this two-tone tag.  The natural trim is an unexpected element, which is what I was going for.  I love the texture and contrast.

My son James graduated from high school last week and my mother needed a graduation card to give him.  When I looked in my card stash all I had left were girlie grad cards.  There wasn’t much time to whip something together so I grabbed the My Paper Pumpkin starter kit and made a couple of quick changes, and voila, a graduation card!

And this is the change I made to create a graduation card.

To create the graduation card I just stamped the congrats grad stamp from the Blue Ribbon stamp set in Old Olive  punched it out with the 1-1/4″ circle punch and layered it on with a dimensional.  (Blue Ribbon stamp set wood-mount #125979 or clear-mount #125981)

MDS Comfort Cafe Birthday Card

Digital Tuesday – A MDS Happy Birthday

MDS Comfort Cafe Birthday Card

This is the fabulous card my sister gave to me for my birthday.  She designed these 5″ x 7″ birthday cards in MDS and then sent them straight from the software to Stampin’ Up! to be printed.  The printed cards are really nice and they come with envelopes too.

She used the Comfort Café digital dsp for the background on the front, the back and the inside.  She added a Crumb Cake band across the middle front, a Very Vanilla decorative label punch and a Night of Navy happy birthday stamp from the Engraved Greetings digital stamp brush set.

MDS Comfort Cafe Birthday Card

After adding the background to the back she included a Night of Navy filled punch with her initials to personalize her creation.

She kept it simple on the inside with more dsp at the top and a ‘make it a good one’ greeting.

Make a few of your own birthday cards and order them today so you’ll always have what you need on hand.

It’s the very last day to order from the retiring products list!!  In fact, the Spring catalog has already expired with this fun Sunshine and Sprinkles paper featured on today’s project.   But it isn’t too late to order the Pretty Postage stamp set and the Petal Card double punch!

I folded up the punched petal card and slipped the 1″ square punched happy birthday greeting from Pretty Postage inside.  I attached a loop of ribbon behind the tiny greeting to allow it to easily be pulled out.  The banner across the front is from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set.
