Up Up & Away Birthday Card

Up Up & Away
Have you ever seen a picture or a sunset and had the compeling urge to hole up in your craft room?  I hope today's Creativity Blooms Color Combo inspires you to create.

Robin's Card Making Tips

  • My background is the Tasteful Trim die and the Inlaid Embossing Techinique.  For a video tutorial on this technique Click Here
  • The Up Up & Away stamp set reflects our happy theme.  Hint:   When stamping the balloon, try stamping the basket first and then attaching the balloon.  
  • For Whimsy add buttons and shimmery ribbon

Punch Art Nurse Card

Punch Art Owl Nurse


A Punch Art Owl nurse is a cute way to send Get Well Wishes.  Today's card goes to a team member who is under the weather.

Robin's Punch Art Tips

  • My Owl was punched with the Owl Builder Punch first with Snow Festival Designer Paper and again with Whisper White.
  • My Wings and branch were punched with the Bird Builder Punch
  • To fashion a nurse's hat, I punched a second Whisper White breast with my Owl Builder Punch, then flipped it upside down on her head.
  • My red cross is from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack
  • What's an owl without googly eyes?  Googlies are found on page 27 of the Holiday Mini.
  • Her "clipboard" was stamped with a greeting from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp set.
