You've Got This Birthday Card

Welcome to my blog! Today, I am sharing with you a card created with the "You've Got This" stamp set from Stampin' Up. I wasn't going to get this stamp set because I have so many flower stamp sets already. When I was on the Pinterest website and seen cards other people have created using this set  just won me over to purchase it for myself.

These are the Stampin' Up! supplies used to create this card.

Cardstock: Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler, and Whisper White
Classic Ink: Cherry Cobbler and Night of Navy
Blendabilities (discontinued): Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive
Stamp Set: You've Got This and Happiest Birthday Wishes (retired)
Accessories: Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon (retired)

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my card creations. I hope you like what you see. You may also leave a comment if you would like, if not that is all right also.

Now go-n-stamp!!

Butterfly Berry Basket

Hello, everyone! Thank you for stopping by. Today, I am sharing with you a basket that is made using the Berry Basket Bigz L Die from the Occasions Catalog. I believe, there are a lot of things you can use this die for gifts, shower favors, to name a few. I don't know why, but I really like 3-D projects. Maybe, because they are more exciting than just a card. I know, it isn't just a card when you make them yourself. I too love giving cards and making them special for whoever it is I am making them for. I just still tend to like the 3-D stuff more.

This is a list of Stampin' Up! supplies needed to create this.
Cardstock: Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, and Best Year Ever DSP
Tools: Big Shot, Berry Basket Bigz L Die, Butterflies Thinlits Dies, and the Bigz Beautiful Butterly (retired)
Accessories: Artisan Embellishment Kit

I still have not totally decided what I want to put into this little basket. I am planning on giving it away as a gift, though. Please, leave a comment if you would like. If not, thank you for stopping by, anyhow. I hope you have been inspired to create a basket yourself!

Now go-n-stamp!!

Moon Lake Meets Wetlands

Wow! It has been a long time since I posted a picture of something I created. It had been a cold winter. I could not stand to be down in my basement for very long at all to create cards or post anything. That was even with a heater running.
I am happy to say that my craft room and computer are now moved upstairs to an unused room, since my children are grown. Now I have no excuse to not be able to post new things on my blog, at least for being cold that is. Now it would be because of being tired from work, watching my grandchildren, or who knows what else. I will try to do better though.
This is a card I had made for my husband in February using the stamp sets "Moon Lake" and "Wetlands." For the background I used the "Hardwood" stamp. Due to the fact that it has been a little while back, I have to guess a little bit with the colors. My husband saves the cards I make for him, so I know for sure I used Chocolate Chip, Tangelo Twist, and Whisper White cardstock. The ink choice was Memento Tuxedo Black. For the coloring I had used the Stampin' Up! Blendabilities, unfortunately, due to quality issues with these Stampin' Up! has discontinued them. I am curious to see if they come out with something else, instead. I hope so at least.

Now, moving on to the tools. Obviously, I used the Big Shot, along with the Oval Framelits. The duck I cut out by hand with Papersnips.
Well, there you have the details. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to leave them. Thank you for taking the time to look. Have a wonderful day.
Now go and stamp!
