Calypso Coral and the Botanical Framelits

Good Morning!
I wanted to share this gorgeous card, I saw on Pinterest. I love the heart die in the background, which is layered on the Butterfly EF. Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive  colours complete this card. I think its stunning!
If you live in Canada...and want any of the Stampin' Up products please leave a comment and I will get back to you!
Enjoy your day!

Happy Birthday with Balloon Celebration

Good Morning!
I have a ton of DSP. I need to use it up!! This card features Balloon Celebrations, and I used the outline stamp, and then punched out the balloon, using a bit of my DSP! I made several of these cards, as I like to swap, especially for birthdays!
Come back again another day and see what I have been up to!

Pink meets Balloon Celebration

Good morning!
I chose this card for today! Again, I am using the Balloon Celebration stamp set. The embossed piece is the star EF from Stampin' Up.A little glitter cardstock to spiff the card up. Easy peasy lemon squeasy. I used the star punch, and the balloon punch as well.
Pinterest Inspired.
Enjoy...happy card making!

Balloon Celebrations

Hey All!
Today my card was inspired by Pinterest!! Shocker!! lol
I love the way this card turned out. Balloon Celebrations stamp set was used. I am enjoying using the 2 step balloon stamp, Its very easy to use. Just stamp off, to get the lighter colour underneath! There are lots of embellishments as well, a little more than I generally use. The new shiny enamel dots are great to work with! A few rhinestones made their way to the card as well. If you notice, there is a small embossed piece on the card as well. The designer of the card, called it an "art piece".  This is one of my favourite cards!
Enjoy! I hope you make a card today!

Brown Monochromatic Revisted

So I participate in swaps. I love cardmaking, and this gets me doing it. A few years ago when I started out with Stampin' Up I made the top Brown Monochromatic card. It has been sitting around for awhile...I keep looking at it, thinking its a masculine card. Yesterday as I was searching my stash, I came across the top card. I thought...oh...I can use this one. Looking at it, I thought it was pretty plain, so I decided to pull out my Botanical Builder dies and spiff it up a bit. I pulled out my stash of brown scraps and cut away! I am really happy with the way it turned out, no longer a masculine card...and soon will be off on its way to its recipient!
Have a great day!

Awesomely Artistic

I made a page on FB. I had been thinking about it for a long time. I am hoping people will post their CAS creations, or originals, so we can be inspired to Stamp. My first post was Awesomely Artistic. I got busy and inked up this stamp set, and came up with this beauty, which I CAS'D. I think it is gorgeous! lol. My embossing folder is different than the one I CAS'D but I love how it turned out. I am in a swap group...and I think the gals will get this one in the mail too!
Happy card making! Maybe you can join us on FB too.

Awesomely Artistic 2

I made this card for a swap. Awesomely Artistc was used. I don't know if you can tell, but the corner is folded back, giving it a unique look.

Have a great day, and may you create a card or two!

Birthday card for Weston

My grandson Weston recently celebrated his 6th Birthday. This is the card I made for him. Balloons are punched from the Balloon punch, stars on balloons are from Birthday Celebration, and I used the star embossing folder on the white background.
I hope you like...I did see this on Pinterest first.
Happy Card Making!
