Make Your Dreams Happen Graduation Card

Sunny Days Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Today's card is fun and simple to make.  I think it would make a great graduation card.  Simply stamp your Lemonade Stand from the Sunny Days stamp set and color with watercolor pencils or markers or a combination of the two.  Love the childlike sun and lemonade stand!  And the font for the sentiment plays well with the picture images from this stamp set.

Sunny Days Stampin' Up!

I made my card base with Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock (retiring).  It's a splendid color to pair with the Lemonade stand and sunshine.  To add a bit of texture and interest, I embossed the bottom of my Card base with a Petal Pair embossing folder.  For a final pop of color, I let a few Gingham Gala sequins skip across my card front.


Retiring Stampin' Up! Craft Supplies

The Sunny Day Stamp Set, the Petal Pairs Embossing Folder and Lemon Lime Twist card stock and ink are all only available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST or June 3, 2019 (whichever comes first.)  Scoop Up your must-have retiring Stampin' Up! crafting supplies before they are gone.   For your convenience, I've listed all the supplies for today's card below.



Have a fabulous day,

6 Treehouse Adventure Projects

  Treehouse Adventure Stampin' Up!

Welcome Tag 


Hello Friends,

As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator this time of year is exciting because demonstrators from around the world will be placing their preorders from the 2019-2020 Stampin' Up! Catalog.  While it is a time of anticipation, there is also a little bit of lament.  To make room for all our fabulous new Crafting Supplies, we have to say good-bye to some of our current favorites.  Today, I'm giving a final salute to the Treehouse Adventure stamp set by Stampin' Up! with 6 project ideas.

Treehouse Adventure Stampin' Up!

I really loved this card with the partial Buffalo Check background and the house being lifted with a bundle of balloons. Get the full Scoop


How to Make an Easel Card

You may remember this Happy Birthday Easel card from earlier this week.  Learn How to Make the Treehouse Adventure Easel Card

Treehouse Adventure Shadow Box Card

The real wow on this card is the inside.  It's a Shadow Box card that I made for our Pastor and his wife.  They were a wonderful team and we loved them dearly, but it was time for them to move on to a new adventure. Treehouse Adventure Shadow Box Card Details

What can I say?  My imagination runs wild when I use the bouquet of balloons from the Hand Delivered hostess stamp set with the house from the Treehouse Adventure stamp set. Get the Details
