Handmade Card for a 3 Year Old

Handmade Card for a 3 Year Old

Hello Friends,

One thing that I love about making handmade cards is that you can personalize them.  For week's now our Granddaughter, Brooke, has been telling us that she wants Pink  and Purple and Blue Balloons and donuts with sprinkles for her birthday.  Every time we talk to her, she rattles off the same colors, so thought that it might be fun to make a Birthday Card with Pink and Purple and Blue balloons.  Believe it or not, I fussy cut the bears, the squirrel and the bunny from the Birthday Memories Designer Paper.  The Birthday Friends dies cut the balloons, presents and hats.

Brooke

 

Who can resist a face like that?  Brooke loved helping me baking on our last visit to her house.  The flour on the end of her nose only adds to her charm.  Happy 3rd Birthday, Brooke!

Personalized Birthday Card

I made the her Birthday Card extra big (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") because kids seem to think big is better.  Inside I inked up stamps from the Birthday Delivery stamp set in....you guessed it....Pink and Purple and Blue inks.

You're Awesome

Coffee Cafe Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

You're Awesome!  I'm glad that you stopped by to take a peek.  Today's card was made with the Coffee Cafe stamp set, the Great Big Greetings Stamp set and the Quilted Christmas designer series paper stack.  I'm not a big coffee drinker (shocking, I know), but I really am fascinated with the Coffee Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cups framelits dies.  Let your imagination decide what's in your cup.

Heat Embossing Transforms Your Cards

Stamping the top on vellum and embossing in white makes a really sweet top to place over what looks like creamy goodness.

While I had my heat tool out, I performed just a little more Heat Embossing magic with my Great Big Greeting sentiment "You're Awesome".  This time the embossing was done in Gold.

Brennan

It's been a crazy, busy summer and autumn here at our house.  I just got back from a week of catching up with family in Florida and this week, I've been busy making memories with this little guy.  Brennan just turned 6 this month and was quite anxious for his  turn at Nana and Papa's house.  I feel so blessed that I am able to adapt my work schedule to allow time for the truly important things in life. 

If you're looking for a way to bring in a little extra cash over the holidays with an adjustable work schedule, I'd love to talk to you about becoming a Stampin' Up! DemonstratorFind out More Here.

Life is a Beautiful Thing

Colorful Seasons Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Just a quick post today.  We are just getting back from a memory making trip to Georgia visiting family.  We had a wonderful time just hanging together.  So today's card is just a quick and easy card  made with the Colorful Seasons Bundle.  Life is a beautiful thing.

We just love this goofy family.  Left to right-Levi, Jonathan, Lincoln, Lacey and Julie.

We enjoyed lots of baby cuddles with our newest granddaughter, Lacey.

And just did a lot of nothing that added up to a whole lot of something.

Colorful Seasons Stampin' Up!

And now just a bit about today's card.  I have a complete list of supplies at the bottom of this post, but here's the highlights.  "Life is a Beautiful Thing" from the Colorful Season stamp set is embossed in Gold on Garden Green.  Cooper Trim adds just a little more dazzle.  The deep embossed leaves were done with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder.  And the Adirondack chair was cut with the Seasonal Layers die.

You may have noticed that I used Kraft Card Stock for my card base.  If you love it as much as I do, you will be happy to know that it is back in the Holiday Catalog in a combo pack (Merry Little Christmas Card Stock Pack) with Old Olive.  The yummy green and white plaid paper (Quilted Christmas) is also from the holiday catalog.

 

Color Throwdown

A Big Thanks to Color Throwdown for their Color Challenge or may never have gotten my creative juices going this morning.  The colors are green, Kraft and White.
