Expectant Mother Cards

Wonderful Moments Stampin' Up!

Hello Friend,

There's just something sweet about Expectant Mother cards and I love the pregnant mama stamp in the Wonderful Moments stamp set by Stampin' Up!.  We love to send baby cards, but why not send a handmade card before the birth of the baby?  We are expecting a new grandson in June, so this card will be mailed out to my sweet daughter-in-law, Bethany.

Pregnant Mama Card Tips

Everything is white except for a few accents to highlight the pregnant mama.

The added texture from the Ruffled Embossing Folder and the stitched rectangle bring the white to life.

Hint:  When coloring the mama, leave just a teeny bit of white to highlight her baby belly.

 

Wonderful Moments Stampin' Up!

Most of today's card supplies will be carrying over to the new Stampin' Up! Catalog, but the Ruffled Embossing Folder and the Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon are on the Stampin' Up! 2019 Retirement List and will only be available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.  Want to make this card?   For your convenience, I've listed all of today's cards supplies at the bottom of this post.

Color Throwdown

Thanks to Color Throwdown for today's playful color combination of orange, yellow and blue.  For accents, I used Calypso Coral and Pineapple Punch Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots.  Night of Navy is my feature color.  I colored her dress Night of Navy and, just for fun, I added a bit of Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon.

 

 

Have a fabulous day,

Paper Hoarder?

Animal Outings Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Are you a paper hoarder, um.... paper collector?  I challenge you to use that paper.  It looks so much better made up into a card, a scrapbook page or gift packaging.  And it's so much fun to share the beauty.  With the Stampin' Up! Retirement List announcement looming, I find myself scrambling to use some of my favorite papers that I know will land on that list.  This week watch for projects using the fun Animal Expedition Designer Series paper.  Doesn't the paper look so much better made up into cards rather than collecting dust in a drawer?

Animal Outings Stampin' Up!

And there are just so many reasons to send a card.  A few weeks ago, our son, Bryan, brought his tractor up to help us plant 1,600 new trees on our Tree Farm.  We certainly want to send him a Thank You card.  For his card, I paired the Animal Expedition Designer Paper with the Animal Outings stamp set and the Animal Friends dies.  I also use some of my beloved Lemon Lime Twist card stock as a card base.  Last week, I asked you which retiring 2017-2019 In Color was your favorite.  Sixty-three percent of you chose Lemon Lime Twist as your favorite retiring color.

Animal Outings Stampin' Up!

A few weeks ago our son and daughter-in-law, Ben & Emily, spent quality time together running an 8-K marathon.  That's another perfectly good reason to send a handmade card.  Again, I used the Animal Expedition Designer Paper,  the Animal Outings stamp set and the Animal Friends dies.

Hint: I used 2 different stamps to get my sentiment.  By inking just a single word I was able to not only combine words from different stamps, but I was also able to change the layout.  Ink the words that you want to stamp with a marker.  Stamp with Stamparatus, so that you can restamp if you miss a line.

Stampin' Up! Retirement List to be Announced April 15, 2019. 

Shop Early for the best selection.

Are you poised to jump on the Stampin' Up! Retirement List?  Some things will sell out very quickly once the Retirement List is announced on April 15, 2019.  We already know some of the products that will land on the list.  All of the 2017-2019 In Colors will be sayings their good-byes, including Lemon Lime Twist.  Any designer paper that includes retiring colors will also get the boot.  That means that the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper is a goner because it contains Lemon Lime Twist. 

 

 

Have a fabulous day,

Georgia Gifted Teacher of the Year

IMG_3060

My son, Jonathan, was named Georgia's Gifted Teacher of the Year!  We're so proud of him and such an occasion calls for a card.

Tree House Adventure Stampin' Up!

For years now, Jonathan refers to himself as Awesome at family events.  He signs his gifts from Awesome.  He signs his kid's gifts from Awesome's kids.  Today's Hooray! You ARE AWESOME Card keeps the family joke alive.


Treehouse Adventure Stampin' Up!

I don't know what it is about the Treehouse adventure stamp set, but I have a hard time keeping the house on the ground.  It does make a sweet Treehouse, but it's also fun to send it into the clouds.  I also know that the Treehouse Adventure stamp set was designed with children in mind, but honestly I have used this stamp set as much for adults as I have for children.

Treehouse Adventure Card Tips & Tricks

There are 3 stamps in this stamp set that are meant to be leaves for the tree, but with a little bit of imagination they also look like puffy clouds.

I sent the house soaring on an adventure with the balloons from the Hand Delivered stamp set.  I colored the balloons with a rainbow of colors using my Stampin' Blends.  Note: The Hand Delivered stamp set is a Hostess Rewards stamp set and is only available with orders over $150.
