Birthday Club Cards

I joined a monthly birthday card club and each month I get to set three complete strangers a birthday card.  How does it work?  Once you join the club you’re assigned to a team.  You have to read the rules and then agree to follow them.  Basically, you send a card monthly to the people assigned to your team.  On my first month I sent these cards. I plan to surprise one or all of my birthday pals with a special engraved item.  If you’re interested in the birthday club, check out the group on Facebook at The Birthday Club.

  

How many of you buy the 12″x12″ designer series papers and then up with half or more than half left over at the end of the year?  It’s happened to me more often than not.  But now with making cards for the birthday club, I don’t think I’ll have much left over (LOL).

The Details:

  • Use the Reverse Side of the Design Series Paper.  Stampin’ Up! designs their products so that it all pretty much coordinates.  I used both sides of the paper to use up my paper.
  • Coordinating Colors.  To coordinate the contrasting colors, I used the colors from the main layer used on the card.  How easy was that!?  VERY EASY!

A LOOP HOLE THAT GETS YOU $26 IN EXTRA PRODUCT & FREE SHIPPING  You’ll NEVER ever have to make any sales and you just let your membership expire and do it as often as you’d like without any penalties.  Here’s how:

Stamp Ink Paper: Girls Night Out

Why have you not heard from me in a month plus?  I took a month off to be with family.  My dad turned 90 years old and we had to celebrate in Gatsby style.  Then a week later a nephew married his high school sweetheart and it ended with a trip to Mexico.  But I’m back and I’m happy to announce that I have added a laser cutter to my craft room.  Yes, a laser! I’m not leaving my first love….stamping. But the laser will be incorporated into my handmade cards. I truly can’t wait to show you what I come up with.  But first, let me tell you about my wine bottle.

What Are the Details:

  • From the Half Full Stamp Set.  I used the our improved Stampin’ Blends to color in the bottle using the darker color for the lip label and the lighter one for the bottle.  I didn’t do any fancy coloring because quite frankly, I’m no coloring expert, but I don’t need to be!
  • Click  on markers on the left to view the Blends.
  • Quilt Top Textured Impression Embossing Folder.  I embossed the Basic White cardstock and used the flat side of the raised impression becuase I forgot to stamp the sentiment before running it through the Big Shot.  I didn’t correct it because my goal is to show you that you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to make pretty handmade cards.  It’s easy and that’s the point.  Stop being intimidated!
  • Colored Sequin.  I’m not going to comment on these because they are not Stampin’ Up! (LOL).  However, you can take a look at all of our Embellishments here.
  • Cherry Cobbler Cardstock: Did you know this cardstock is available in 12″ x 12″?  I used Cherry Cobbler because I think a darker wine (not my favorite) looked better than a white or blush wouldn’t you agree? (LOL)  I initially was going to make it a white on white card, but I wanted to line it to match as a frame.  I could be wrong (but I don’t care, it’s my card…lol), I think it forces the wind bottle to become the focal point.  Do you think it really matters though?  I mean, what the heck is a focal point anyway?  HAHA

Use Host Code above when you place an on-line order via my on-line store, but only if it’s under $150.  Do not use if your order is more than $150. You will receive additional Host Reward.

Stamp Ink Paper – Fall

Have you tried the Seasonal Layers thinlits?  All I can say is that for the first time using it, I’m in love and I don’t even know what I’m going to make next! HA! Does it look like a Fall card to you?  It does to me and isn’t that all that matters? LOL

Join us this week at Stamp Ink Paper and showcase your Fall themed cards.

The Details:

  • Tree Branch.  Many may think that the tree branch should be sideways but, guess what?  It’s not a branch in my eyes…it’s a really skinny tree and the leaves/flowers are falling off.  But yes, it can be used as a tree branch, a skinny tree branch (HA).  
  • Make a Couple Pop.  To give the card a little pop, I added Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on’ to two of the flowers.  When I say that the photo truly doesn’t do the card justice, I really mean it.  Gosh, I wish I could send it to one of my visitors, just so you can see for yourself.
  • Paper Tree.  The thin tree was made with the thinlit as mentioned above and it wasn’t stamped, but cut with the Wood Textures Designer Series Pack.  All of the product used to make this card is listed below.  If it’s not there then you missed out because it’s either retired or no longer available.

Use Host Code above when you place an on-line order via my on-line store, but only if it’s under $150.  Do not use if your order is more than $150 because you’ll receive your own additional Host Rewards.
