Happy 22nd Birthday, Jason!

Jb birdie punch art cardSo hard to believe my sweet kiddo turned 22 on Monday.. WHERE did all the years go?  One thing I REALLY REALLY love about him is his soft heart for all the sweet birdies and wildlife that visit our backyard. He enjoys feeding them daily and photographing them as well.  When I saw these birdy punch art ideas on the internet, I knew I had to copy them to make a card for Jason!

Bird punch art jason birthday 1

There wasn't a watermark on the bird punch art photo I printed out so I don't know who came up with these ideas, but thank you to whoever it was!

I created them with the Stampin' Up! Bird Punch (#117191) and the stamp from Flowering Flourishes #126365 / 126367  You can purchase then ONLINE HERE

Inside of Jason's Birthday card:

Bird punch art jason birthday 2

These are some of the birdy photos we've taken in the backyard.. enjoy!

Have you played with the fun Core'dinations paper from Stampin' Up!?

Core dinations cardstock
It is currently offered in 3 colors in the Stampin' Up! Spring catalog on pg 12.

Sab stamp a stack hexagon core dinations

As you can see from the cards above, the beauty of this cardstock is that the core of the cardstock is a lighter color than the outside.. so when you use a Stampin' Up! embossing folder and the Big Shot to emboss the paper, then SAND it with the Sanding Block, you reveal the lighter color!

Core dinations block honeycomb

Core'dinations Embossing Instructions

1.  cut Core'dinations paper to size

2. insert into embossing folder

3. dry emboss in the Big Shot

4.  sand with Sanding Block (#129367)

5. wipe with Core'dinations Dust Buddy (#129366)

Here are more samples I made showcasing a variety of embossing folders:

Spring Flowers for my friends in the snow

I've heard from so many friends who are still getting snow, and so many of you have shared your amazing snowy landscape photos with me over the last few weeks.. I really enjoy seeing them... but... I'm also very happy to be here in California in the sunshine. 

We worked in the garden yesterday... our 25 year old fence is going to be replaced and we have to take all the vines down that are basically holding up the fence! LOL So we filled our "green can" with clippings and will do it again until the fence is free of vines. Hubby is afraid it will all just fall over before the contrators come.. so we are leaving some vines up for now to hold it all up.

Since we enjoyed many hours in the sunshine and blue sky, I thought I'd share some garden photos with you .. hope this brings a smile, and some warmth to my friends in the snow...

Dahlia 1

Blanket flower patty bennett

Dahlia 2 patty bennett

Gerbera daisy 1 patty bennett

So if you are housebound in the snow.. I hope you are enjoying STAMPING TIME, and if you have a chance to get out in the sunshine, I hope you are enjoying that too!

We are in the last few days of Stampin' Up!'s 2013 SALE A BRATION so I thought I'd highlight my very favorite FREE Sale a Bration product..

the Happy Hello Card kit!

  Happy hello floral framelits 1

I added some happy designer paper from the Summer Smooches package (#125409) in 1/2" wide strips, some pretty Daffodil Delight Stitched ribbon (#126872) and die cut flowers using the Floral Framelits (#127012), Secret Garden framelits (#129372) and Polka Dot Parade DSP (#126902). I cut a 4-1/4"x5-1/2" piece of Real Red cardstock to back the card with.

Happy hello floral framelits 2

This happy card is topped off with a stamped and punched HELLO greeting from the FREE Pretty Petites Sale a Bration set and punch.

Happy hello secret garden 1

My 2nd card is a variation of the first one, but I stamped the Secret Garden flower images (#129144) on the Polka Dot Parade DSP and die cut them with the Secret Garden framelits (#129372).

Happy hello secret garden 2

(card inspired by Connie Collins)

I punched leaves with the Blossom Petals Builder punch (#121808) and added the pretty Delicate Detail Lace Tape (#130966) just under the piece of blue tulips.
