Happy 75th Birthday

Milestone Birthday Card

Hello Friends,

Yesterday, I posted a Birthday Card for my 3 year old granddaughter, Brooke.  Today, I made a Milestone Birthday Card for my Mom who will be turning 75.   For today's Milestone Birthday Card I used the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp set and the Large Numbers Dies.  It's not everyday that you turn 75.  Such an occasion calls for something special.

Here's Mom holding Baby Brooke, so the picture is about 3 years old, but captures Mom doing what she loves best-cuddling a baby.  Happy Birthday, Mom!

Milestone Birthday Card Tips

I started by watercoloring my background with Tempting Turquoise Ink.  I like to squirt a little re-inker on an acrylic block and wash with an Aqua Painter.  Hint:  Clean up as soon as you are done or you may end up with a Tempting Turquoise hand.  Don't ask me how I know.

The Rose Red "75" was cut with the Large Number Dies.  I made a scalloped frame for it with the Layering Squares dies.

Next, I stamped flowers and leaves in Rose Red, Crushed Curry and Pear Pizzaz.  Hint:  Stamp off the bottom layer for a lighter shade.  Then stamp the outline full strength.  I fussy cut the flowers and arrange them on a snippet of crunched doily.

For a complete list of supplies or to order online, scroll to the bottom of today's post.

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.
