You Rock!

One of my favorite new stamp sets from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog is Music From the Heart.  This extremely versatile set features musical instruments, music notes and cute phrases.  I made this card for my classical guitar-playing brother:

Yeah, OK, it says "You rock!" and he plays classical, but as far as being a brother, he really does rock!

I love the guitar, but I really love the piano keys!

Stamped several times side by side, I then cut close to the edge of the paper to make the ripply edge.

I also stamped the music notes randomly around the Whisper  White cardstock to create my own background paper.

The guitar was stamped and fussy-cut, then mounted with Dimensionals to a Basic Black banner (using the Banner Triple Punch) which was adhered to a black oval cut with the Stitched Shapes dies, and then on to a Bermuda Bay Layering Oval.

The greetings were stamped using Tuxedo Black ink directly onto Bermuda Bay cardstock.

Wishing my brother a very happy birthday!

Music from the Heart is available now.

It's Beach Bag Time

The All Dressed Up dies make an adorable beach bag:

The purse die can be made a few different ways, and I saw a similar idea on Janet Wakeland's site.  Had to make them for my Card Club gals.

I started with cardstock, two pieces of 5-1/2" square is perfect to make a bag.  Cut out, put together and decorate!  What could be easier?

I paired my All Dressed Up dies with the In the Tropics dies (for the flowers and "aloha").  The buckles on the straps fo the bags are cut with Gold Foil using included dies.

Here's my rainbow of colors, filled with chocolates.  They were a hit at my party!

All Dressed Up and In the Tropics are available in the January - June 2020 Mini Catalog now.

Be Bold

I love the new Dressed to Impress suite of products from Stampin' UP!  With feminine images, bright colors and fun sentiments in bold fonts, these stamps are sure to make any girl happy.

How fun is that?

This was one of the cards we made at my last Card Club, and they turned out so cute!  The predominant color is Lovely Lipstick, which is the shade of the wonderful background designer series paper in the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper.  This paper is a FREE Sale-a-Bration offering with a qualifying purchase, and it's just gorgeous!

Then there's that frame - the lovely Heirloom Frames and embossing folders creates a look that sets off any feature.  The rose at the top of the frame is included in the Dressed to Impress stamps and is easily cut out with the coordinating All Dressed Up dies.  As is the lipstick:

Stamped and colored with Stampin' Blends in Smoky Slate and Lovely Lipstick, it's a cinch to cut out with the die.

A snip of the Polka Dot Tulle ribbon and some glitter enamel dots finish off this card, perfect for my daughter, who loves bold lipsticks!

All products are available now; check out the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog and the Sale-a-Bration offerings today!
