She's a Pocketful of Sunshine


Pocketful of Sunshine Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Thirteen, do you remember turning 13?  It's the nebulous stage between little girl and woman.  Today's Pocketful of Sunshine Birthday Card is for my niece, Tori, who turns 13 this month.  The Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set is a fun choice for that in between stage.  It's cute, it's playful and it's just a little bit grown up.

Design Tips

Who doesn't love Polka Dots and checks?  I added a splash of checks by only inking a small portion of my Buffalo Check background stamp.  The polka dots were introduced with the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.

For texture, I heat embossed in White my stitched pocket stamps from the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set.  Then, I embossed the whole pocket with the Subtle Embossing Folder to make it look like fabric.

Every 13 year old girl needs a little bling, so I added Silver Pool Party Baker's Twine and a sprinkling of Iridescent Sequins.

Cutting the pocket with the Pocket Framelit dies creates a nifty pocket for inserting a little cash or gift.  The fold over tabs make a perfect pocket.

A complete list of supplies for today's card are listed at the bottom of this post along with clickable links for your shopping convenience.

I borrowed the bright and cheerful color combination of aqua, red and silver from this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.  I used Coastal Cabana and Real Red Ink and added a splash of silver with my silver pool party baker's twine.

Add a little sunshine to someone's life.  Make a card with the Pocketful of Sunshine stamps.

Have a fabulous day,

Picture Perfect Birthday Card To Make

Picture Perfect Birthday Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Can you believe that tomorrow is November already?  We have a boatload of November birthdays in our family.  So I have been busily making birthday cards in October to send out in November.   Now the trick is to actually get them mailed before the birthdays.  If you have a lot of Birthday Cards to make, I highly recommend the Picture Perfect Birthday stamps.  It has candles, bows, confetti, party blowouts and sentiments in fun fonts.  Plus, the Picture Perfect Birthday stamps is a gender neutral stamp set.  Today's Birthday card is all feminine and light, but yesterday's Birthday Card was rugged and handsome.

Card Design Tips

I lightly sponged my background with Coastal Cabana Ink, then stamped my confetti.

My Stitched Labels Dies came to the rescue once again, this time for the sentiment which I stamped with Gorgeous Grape Ink.

My bow and candles were stamped with Coastal Cabana, Melon Mambo and Gorgeous Grape Inks and fussy cut.

The Take a Pick Tool is such a time saver when it comes to adding sequins to your hand stamped cards.

How to Personalize a Birthday Card for Dad

Handmade Birthday Card for Dad

Hello Friends,

My Dad's Birthday is coming up next month and I thought that it might be fun to personalize his Birthday Card this year.  The key to making great guy cards is simplicity.  Fluff is out when making cards for the guys in your life.  Dad's Birthday Card started with the striking Broadway Bound Designer Paper.  The black, white and gold candles are a fabulous way to start a Birthday Card.


Handmade Personalized Birthday Card

To compliment the Broadway Bound Paper.  I cut a gold foil and a whisper white oval with my Layering Ovals Dies.  Next, it was time to stamp.  To personalize Dad's Card, I used the Make a Difference stamps to spell out Dad.  The Happy Birthday and the party blowout were stamped with the Picture Perfect Birthday stamps.  I gold embossed the party blowout fringe and fussy cut my party toy to place it where I wanted it.  And the "fabulous at any age" was stamped with the Itty Bitty Greetings stamps.


Hand Stamped Card Idea by Robin Feicht

Inside I stamped a simple birthday sentiment from the Picture Perfect Party stamps and my Handmade Birthday Card for Dad was done!  So the next time you need a simple and quick card, pick a paper and start stamping.
