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,

 WooHoo!  Do you love a great sale?  Stampin' Up! is having a 24-Hour stamp sale on select stamps today, October 23!  It's one day only, so if there's a stamp set or two that's on your wish list, scoop them up today and save 15%!  Here's a list of the stamps included in the It's Our Birthday Stamp Sale.  I also have a cute birthday card that I made for my soon to be 4 year old Granddaughter featuring 2 of our sale stamps-Pick a Pennant and Apron of Love.

Pinkalicious Birthday Card

I'm not sure if I like the inside or the outside of this Birthday Card better.  It's so packed with cuteness.  If you have any daughters or granddaughter you may have heard of Pinkalicious.  There's books and a TV show about her.  My 4-year old granddaughter, Brooke, just loves her.  She's also super excited about her upcoming Birthday, since the rest of her family all have spring birthdays and she has to wait all the way until fall.  It's finally her turn.  I thought that it might be fun to personalize her birthday card this year using the Pinkalicious theme and the Pick a Pennant stamps.


Apron of Love Stampin' Up!

Brooke also loves to help me bake almost as much as I love baking with her.  She's such a delight.  The Apron of Love stamps along with the coordinating Apron Builder dies were perfect for expressing my thoughts.  They're so stinkin' cute.  I feel an Apron of Love scrapbook page coming in the future.


Pick a Pennant Stampin' Up!

Since I'm going with a Pinkalicious theme, I used primarily pink inks with just a few other colors to add interest.  I used Powder Pink, Petal Pink, Melon Mambo, Lovely Lipstick, Daffodil Delight and Highland Heather inks.


Apron of Love Stampin' Up!

My Happy Birthday Sentiment is from the Better Together stamps.   

 

 So what's on your list? 

This is a 24-Hour sale so scoop them up while you can and Save 15 %.

 

Have a fabulous day,

How to Make Knock Knock Joke Cards

Knock Knock Joke Sliding Door Card

Hello Friends,

What is it about Knock Knock Jokes and kids?  They love them!  What if I told you that you could make your own Knock Knock Joke Cards for all the kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews in your life?   I honestly can't believe that I didn't think of using the Barn Door stamp set for making Knock Knock Joke Cards before.  Pair it with the A Little Wild Stamps and the Pick a Pennant stamps and you have a winner.  

Plus, let me let you in on a little secret....

Knock Knock Joke Sliding Door Card

Tomorrow, October 23, 2018 for 24 Hours Only Stampin' Up! is having a It's Our Birthday Stamp Sale and 2 out of 3 of these stamp sets will be on sale!

Knock Knock Joke Sliding Door Card

Let's get back to how to make these fun Knock Knock Jock Cards.  I started by coloring a couple cute animals with the A Little Wild Stamps.  I colored them with my beloved Stampin' Blends (Mango Melody Combo, Soft Suede Light, Daffodil Dark, Cajun Craze Combo) and set them aside.  My animals will be telling the joke since everybody knows that it takes two to do a good knock knock joke.

Next, make a Sliding Barn Door Card Base.  If you have never made a Sliding Barn Door Card before, you simple have to try it.  To see my tutorial on how to Make Sliding Barn Door Cards, Click Here.


Knock Knock Joke Sliding Door Card

 I used to Pick a Pennant Stamps to stamp my Knock Knock Joke.  Important Hint:  Cut a 4" x 2-1/2" piece of card stock, then stamp your joke so that half  shows up when the door is slid to the right and so that the punch line shows when the door is slid to the right.  As always, I included a card supply list at the bottom of my blog post for your shopping convenience.

 

 Put on your Party Hats and stop back tomorrow and save 15% off select stamps.  Celebrate  30 Years with Stampin' Up! with this 24-Hour Only It's our Birthday Stamp Sale.

 

Have a fabulous day,
