Masculine birthday

Gotta love a good masculine birthday card.  I found this one on pinterest and decided to recreate it.  It's so hard to make cards with a masculine touch, at least for me it is.  I really like how this one turned out though, i looks just like a mans shirt and jacket.  ;)

Daffodil Birthday

Ever since I bought the Stampin' Up! Betsy's Blossom stamp set I feel like the only stamp I have used out of it is the bird, so I decided to make a card with the little flower.  This card was a snap, but lookes fancy I think, just the kind of card I like to give.  I also used the daffodil delight seam binding, love love love the bright color on a delicate ribbon.

Birthday presents

Here is a cute card I made as part of a card variety pack I sold.  I was asked to make two 10 card variety packs, one all different birthday cards, the other all different anniversary cards.  I love these kind of card orders because it's not the monotony of making the same card over and over.  This card used dsp for the "presents", taffeta ribbon, and a cute little button, so easy!

Primrose Core'dinations card stock

I have been wanting to try out the Stampin' Up! core'dinations paper since I got it.  This one is the primrose color.  I ran it though an embossing folder and then sanded over it to create the cool distresssed look.  Here I am again using the Oh Hello stamp set, love it.  This is another cute case that was a super easy card to put together in a pinch, enjoy.

Coral pop

I saw this card on Mary Fish's blog and instantly wanted to make it.  She has the MOST amazing cards, her layouts and color combos are to die for!  This color combo was one that I love but would have never put together on my own, I just had to see it in i made it!  I not only love the way it turned out but it has become one of my favorite cards.  Thanks Mary for your amazing inspiration.

Real Red

 Here is a cute and quick card I made the other day that uses the new Stampin' Up! Oh, Hello and Hearts a Flutter stamp sets, along with the coordinating dies.  I cased this card from pinterest and I just love the color combo.  Apparently my customers did too (This card sold two days after I made it!)

all dressed up

I have been wanting yo use the new Stampin' Up! dress up framelits dies ever since my friend Alyssa at mommy, etc bought them ;)  After using them I am totally obsessed.  They are so cute, totally not something I would have originally bought, but I am in love!  I made this card and ended up selling it the very next day, seems I'm not the only one in love.

bring on the cake

When I saw this card I just knew I had to remake it!  there is very little stamping on this card but you don't miss it when you have this great dsp to work with.  Cutting out the cakes wasn't too bad, took just a few minutes and once you stick everything together it turns out to be an awesome card.

flower friends

Here is a card I made that was super easy to put together.  I am submitting this card to this weeks Black Tie Fridays challenge, ribbons, buttons, brads (choose two).  This card took just a few minutes and uses very little supplies.  I'm still mixed on the Stampin' Up! two toned ribbon.  It's a neat idea but it very thick ribbon and seems to overhwelm the cards I put it on.  I do like the idea of a ribbon that is two toned though, it matches with more and can be more versitile.

gold birthday

Well Stamp camp is done, it was a huge success!  We had a sold out venue and recieved so much positive feedback from our customers.  I'm looking forward to our next event!
Here is a card I made just messing around with the new hearts a flutter stamp set and framelits.  I saw the inspiration for this card on pinterest and gave it my spin.  This picture truly doesn't do the gold cardstock justice, it's got a great sheen to it in person.  Thanks for looking.

Oh, Hello

Here is a card I am entering in this weeks colourQ color challenge.  I originally saw this card on pinterest and when I spotted this weeks colourQ challenge I knew it was meant to be ;)  Just a few minor tweeks to give it my own spin and tada, a beautiful card that will also be a great sample to put out at stamp camp.  The colourQ challenge is always a hard one for me because it incorporates so many colors, but I really wanted a challenge this week so I went for it.

oops, I forgot to post yesterday!

Well stamp camp is this sunday and I have been slammed trying to finish all the prepwork!  I had this card waiting in my que and totally forgot to post it yesterday, oops.  I saw this card on pinterest a while ago and wanted to recreate it, I love the color scheme.  It is not a combo I would normally put together but I really like the soft colors with the pop of the orange.

For my Mom

Here is a card I made last night while I was watching the Bachelor, yes I watch that cheesy reality show and yell at all the people on it while my husband laughs at me!  Anyways, it was such a simple card I was able to multitask and add to my card samples.  I got the inspiration from a card on pinterest, simple and bold, especially with the black background.

Another patterned occasion

Here is a card that I did for this weeks Mojo Monday challenge and Dynamic Duos challenge. The colors look a bit vibrant here, more so than normal, I struggles to get a good picture...I wish I had a better setup for taking my pictures, I'll have to work on that.   I am pushing myself to do at least one challenge per week, it helps me to keep keep my inspiration and it gives me more great samples to display at stamp camp.  I used the Stampin' Up! sale-a-bration stamp set patterned occassions, which I am totally in love with, enjoy!

A friend

Here is a card I made for a sample to show at Stamp Camp...this Sunday! I cased it from a card I saw on Pinterest. I took the overall idea but simplified, it was a very intricate card. I am in love with this color combo too.
