SU "A Cherry on Top" #5


This last card (for now) using the designer paper is basically a CASE of a card I saw on Pinterest.  Some of the paper from the 6 x 6 pack had been used previously and now 5 more cards have been made.  

Since it is group of papers I have had for a long time, I wish the paper had all been used up.  However, there are still some sheets left.  If anyone wants what is left, I'd gladly give it up for the cost of sending it to you.

Thank you for coming by today!

2 BIRTHDAY CARDS - SU Vases & "A Cherry On Top" #3


In the summer after my 6th Grade year of school, I attended a church camp for a week.  One of the girls from another town and I quickly formed a friendship. For several years our parents would arrange for us to stay at each other's homes for a few days.  I was in her wedding three weeks after I got married.  Along the line we lost touch when she moved out of state but Facebook reunited us.  Today is her birthday and although I didn't get it sent off in time, I'm in hopes she'll get it the day after.

The vases and the tulip blossoms are popped with foam dimensionals.


This card was made using strips of the "A Cherry On Top" designer paper.  Very quick and easy!

STAMPIN' UP! - A Cherry on Top #2


I had some small scraps of this designer paper so I used them to make the candles.  The flames are actually the "bird wings" from the SU punch.  When I bought this designer paper, I also got Washi Tape with the same designs and ribbons in three of the colors.  I've hardly used any of the ribbon but tied a knot, trimmed the piece and tucked it behind the sentiment banner which was popped with two dimensional foam squares.

A WEEK OF STAMPIN' UP! "A CHERRY ON TOP" Designer Paper



Recently I watched a video of Lisa Curcio making a card and stamping her own background on a birthday card.  This is my version of what she made.  I didn't have the same banner she used so I made my own.  I liked her suggestion of stamping at an angle multiple times.

There are several family birthdays during August so one of my family members may likely be the one to receive this card.

Thank you for coming by today!

THREE INSPIRING IRIS CARDS


This is a partial CASE of one I saw on Pinterest.  I really like the colors used for the flower.  It doesn't show very well in the pictures but I lightly sponged some of the Balmy Blue around the flowers.  (see 2 more below)


Using SU Heather Highland and two-step stamping for the flower.

Can you believe it?  Tomorrow is AUGUST 1ST!  Thank you for coming by today!

USING A CARD PIECE


This stamped piece has been on my table for a long time.  I don't remember what stamp or stamp set it came from, but it was time to move it.  I quickly colored it with SU blenders and matted it with the Old Olive card stock to add to the white card base.  One more card done for Easter 2021.
