Cindee Wilkinson designed this fun card and I made it at her house a couple weekends ago… how cute is this little artist's easel!? I'm sure anyone would love to receive this hand stamped birthday card!
The chalkboard part is embossed with White ink and White embossing powder on the Chalkboard paper! We used the Balloon Bash stamp set on pg 13 of the Occasions catalog – it's only available until June 2nd.. here is the ONLINE STORE link!
The Artist Easel part is so easy..
1. Cut your cardstock to 4-1/4"x11, and fold cardstock in 1/2.
2. To create the woodgrain, put some Soft Suede ink onto your Woodgrain embossing folder and then place your card into the folder, run it through the Big Shot, and voila.. you have embossed woodgrain!
3. Use the Decorative Label Punch to punch right in the center of the 4-1/4" width of the card!!
And you know.. it's always helpful to have a doggie helper sleeping on your foot while you craft.. right!? thanks Jessie!
Thanks Cindee for the fun card design and fun day at your house!

I'm just thinking these are WAY too much fun!! AND I love that I don't have to cut or measure ANYTHING!

Today is a special day… Mother's Day! Happy Mother's Day to all of my "mom friends"! I also realized it's 5-10-15 which is just a SUPER cool date!! I was guessing there might me lots of weddings going on today because of the cool date, So.. why not share a wedding card I recently made!?
As I mentioned in this previous blog post, our niece Amy just got married… and of course I had to create a handmade wedding card for her… I used the beautiful "For the New Two" stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog and Calypso Coral ink and embossing powder to make it really special!
I wish we could have handed this to Josh and Amy in person, but, unfortunately, the 3 of us ended up SO sick that Easter Weekend and had to miss the wedding, but we wish them all the best and send all our love!
This is Amy and Josh with my father-in-law (her grandpa) who married them. My father-in-law is a Lutheran minister and has married all of his kids and grandkids.. what a neat honor!
Do you love Card Kits!? I do!! After over 20 years of teaching classes and prepping the supplies for everyone else, I TRULY love it when I can sit down and open a package or box and just CREATE with the kit supplies!! Thank you Stampin' Up! for the great Hooray It's Your Day card kit!!! See it on pg 16 of the Occasions catalog or here in my online store. It's not in the new catalog.. so grab one now if you want it!
The cards above are the popular File Folder Pocket Cards that come in the kit.. there are also 15 other cards in the kit. If you want to make File Folder Pocket Cards but don't have this kit, you can also make them with the Envelope Punch Board, please WATCH THE VIDEO here for instructions.
Aren't the embellishments cute!? The kit comes with fun accessories like wooden elements, stencils (masks), tags, word bubbles, die cut balloons, number stickers, twine and more!! That's in addition to the supplies to make 20 card and envelopes!
I also "embellished" by adding scrap strips of Sweet Dreams designer paper with the Stampin' UP! stapler to the front of the pocket card!
TIP: Use the Liquid Multipurpose glue (sparingly!) to add the wooden elements.
Grab the matching stamp set HERE online, too.. you'll be happy you did!
Hooray It's Your Day stamp set, #137164, only $13.95
I love the card above.. I used the sunburst mask to add some sunrays to the tag, then stamped It's All About You today and the stars over the background!
See 2 of my other Hooray It's Your Day cards here:
In my Stampin' UP! world, my thought is: just add a pop of black and you have a great project.. so I added the black and white Stacked with Love Washi Tape to these cards! It's on pg 5 of the Occasions catalog and also is not in the new catalog that starts on June 2nd.. so get it now if you want it! #137789 here online.

Our niece, Amy, recently got married to a super guy named Josh.. and for her bridal shower, I sent her THESE THANK YOU NOTE BOXES made from empty Project Life boxes. Below is the card I mailed with the boxes for her bridal shower.. I think you could also use this for a wedding card!
The background is stamped with a limited time offering stamp called Something Lacy.. I'm really sad that it's only available until June 2nd!!! You can see it in my online store here! I stamped it in Crisp Cantaloupe ink on Whisper White paper then layered it onto a folded Crisp Cantaloupe folded card. Crisp Cantaloupe is one of my all time favorite colors.. I'm sad it's retiring too!!
Below is the 411 on creating this card.. the sentiment is from the "For the New Two" stamp set which I'm happy to tell you will also be in the new Stampin' Up! catalog!! yay!!!
I used 3 sweet little ribbon flowers on this card.. they were from the Artisan Embellishment kit that sold out quickly… I am learning that it's important to get Stampin' Up! products quickly after they are released because so many from the Occasions catalog sold out quite quickly this year!
I love the 3-1/2" x 5" Stampin' UP! Whisper White Note Cards.. If you have ever received a customer Thank You card from me, chances are you've received one of the note cards. I LOVE them.. really thick sturdy white cardstock and a great size for stamping and decorating!
Below you'll see 2 versions of one note card I designed for Customer Thank You cards featuring the beautiful Butterfly Basics stamp set and Butterflies Thinlit dies.
