Perennial Birthday Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Do you like stretching your crafting dollars?  Try dusting off old favorites to use in new ways.  Remember how hot the Stitched Be Mine and Stitched Labels dies were when they debuted?  We couldn't get enough of them.  The Stitched Be Mine dies were all the rage around Valentine's Day and we simply couldn't get enough of the Stitched label dies when they first made their appearance in last year's Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.

Perennial Birthday Stampin' Up!

Today, I paired these fabulous dies with a stamp set that's been around the block a few times, the Perennial Birthday stamp set to give them all a fresh new look.

They didn't enter the crafting world together or even at the same time, but on today's Perennial Birthday Card they look as if they were always meant to be together.

Here's a Few Card Tips

I stamped a band of whimsical images from the Perennial Birthday stamp set using Crushed Curry, Gorgeous Grape, Tuxedo Black and Sahara Sand Ink.  

Then, I colored the bigger flowers with Rococo Rose, Highland Heather, and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends.

To top everything off, I cut a whimsical selection of Whisper White shapes with the Stitched Be Mine and Stitched Labels dies to dance across the top of my card.  And finally, I fussy cut one little daisy just so I could pop it up.

Handmade Unicorn Birthday Card

Hello Friends,

What is it about Unicorns and little girls?  Little Girls and Unicorns seem to go hand in hand these days.  With that in mind, I wanted to make a unicorn Birthday card for my granddaughter's upcoming birthday, but I haven't ordered the new Unicorn stamp set yet.  But with a little creativity, I was able to make a Unicorn Birthday Card with the supplies that I already owned.  It's sorta like a Punch Art Unicorn made with dies and markers.

Unicorn Birthday Card Tips and Tricks

The Petal Pink polka dot background is from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.

The horn is Sparkle Glimmer Paper cut with the little Sailboat die from the Smooth Sailing Dies.

The unicorn ears were cut with leaf dies from the Natures Roots dies and Whisper White Paper.

The flowers and leaves were stamped with the Tea Together stamp set and the Tea Time Dies.  I colored them with Purple Posy, Rococo Rose, Highland Heather, and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends.

I free handed the eyelashes with my Basic Black Dark Stampin' Blend.

The Beautiful Bouquet stamp set provided the Happy Birthday stamp.

Good-Bye Foxy Friends

Foxy Friends Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

As we approach the end of the 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Catalog period, I thought that it would be fun to say a final Good-Bye to the Foxy Friends stamp set and the Fox Builder Punch.  We've had some good times together.  All Retiring product is basically AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES with a final adios on June 3.

Fox Tails Plant

Today's card was inspired by my Mother's Day Gift from my son, Bryan.  He called it a Fox Tails plant which really tickled me.  I love this quirky plant and it made me itch to pull out my Foxy Friends one last time.

Card Making Tips

I stamped my main images with the new Terracotta Tile Ink.  It's really a sharp color for our furry little friends.  Then, I cut them out with my Stitched Shapes dies so that I could pop them up.

I stamped a few more fox tails for good measure and added greenery with the Leaf Punch and a leaf stamp from the Foxy Friends stamp set.

My sentiment is from one of my favorite sentiment stamp sets, Beautiful Bouquet.

Foxy Friends Stampin' Up!

Time is running out for Foxy Friends and other retiring Stampin' Up! product.  Is there retiring product on your list that you will regret not purchasing before it is gone?  Now's the time to scoop it up.
