Easter Easel Card and Update

It's time for a fun card idea.

An Easel Card.

An Easter Easel Card.

This card is 4 1/4" X 11".


I used my New Favorite stamp-The Background stamp-Hardwood (w) #133032 $17.95, (c) #133035 $13.95.

I just cut out the bottom part of the card-not too much or your easel will fall over or look really odd!

The colors are Crumb Cake Cardstock (#120953 $6.95) and Crumb Cake ink (#126975 $5.95). I used a scrap card that had the background stamped on it and cut out strips. I pieced it together and then added the flowers-Flower Shop (w) #130939 $23.95, (c) #130942 $17.95 with the bundled punch (page 95 of the catalog). I also used the new Petite Petals (w) #133152 $15.95, (c) #133155 $11.95 with bundled punch (page 33 of Occasions Catalog). The greeting is from Delightful Dozen (w) #128547 $32.95, (c) #122652 $24.95.

I added a few pearls to the small flowers:


I hope this inspires you to create a Beautiful Spring Card.

Sadie’s Birthday Party

Party, Party, Party!

It was Sadie's 7th Birthday, and I was invited to be her entertainment!

10 Very Excited and Very Busy girls made Magnetic Boards from Galvanized Roof Flashing. They enjoyed the Bottlecap magnets too.

I'm afraid I did not get many pics of the "work in progress" but I did manage a few. Hey, I was BUSY with this group. And to think I brought an extra project in case they finished super fast. Not so, and we only had time for the one project.

The whole group busy working:



The Birthday Girl-Sadie-diving into Rhinestone Bling.


Inside those Goodie Bags, Generally No Candy for little one's, Only Stampin' Up! goods and American Made products.


A pic of the Goodie Bag topper:


A group shot of the "Very Serious" Group:


THANK YOU SADIE for letting me be a part of your Birthday Celebration. I Had fun. I hope you and your friends did too.


Would You like to have a Kid's Party?

A Floral Birthday Card


Bring Spring on. I think it will be at least 50 Degrees today. I am Ok with that. Just filled all my bird feeders, had to take a break for two weeks due to Deer coming out of the woods and taking them over. I am going to have to get more suet, my supply of 80 are gone. The woodpeckers are flying all around and giving me the eye, if that's possible. Since there are no flowers breaking the ground yet here in Lake Geneva, WI, I am putting them on cards. Just a fun idea I found once again on Pinterest. I forgot to pin her and have no idea who to give credit to, sorry. Have you been on Pinterest. Seriously-A Huge Suck of Time but so much easier then cutting pics out and filing them away or putting on a corkboard. This saves Paperwork, printing costs and just takes up a little time in your day. If you are a New visitor-Make sure you have plenty of down time to enjoy it. CLick here 'cause I'm on Pinterest-and you can click on my Pinterest Widget on your lower left of this blog. You can check out what I like.

Ok, On to the card at hand:

A Floral Birthday Card

I made a second one and added a bit of Strawberry Slush ink on the edge with a sponge. It adds just a bit of color against the white Cardstock.

BIG SHOT ETC: I used the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder #117335 $7.95

BUNDLE & SAVE 15% with this Set and Punch: #132727 $33.95 (Wood Bundle), #132726 $28.75 (Clear Bundle).


The White Cardstock is cut in 1/2.

Fold one peice -5 1/2" X 8 1/2".

I cut 1" off the 5 1/2 of the front of the card.

Now run it through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder.

Stamp out different colored flowers.

Punch out.

Now-Handy Tip Alert:

This particular set can be bundled with the punch. But, did you know in order to line up the punch perfectly, you need to have the stamp stamped right?

Let me show you.

Look at where I placed a Black Dot. Look at every flower stamp and you can see where the Punch will line up.

See how the Punch will line up. Perfect punching every time.

Time for Spring Treats


Its Day 4 of my Birthday Blog Candy Giveaway.

Time for Spring Treat ideas. Of course with Easter around the corner, there is a huge choice of candy to choose from. In my creative stamping world, sometimes those candies dictate how I create my projects. This stamp set is a Sale-A-Bration set and I put it together and put it in the drawer about 2 months ago. That would almost be Serious Oops, if I had gone the entire 2014 SAB season without playing with it. It's a nice set & FREE with a $50.00 order. It's the You're Lovely Stamp Set (w)#133575 or (c) #133578.

Here is my Sweet Treat Creation:


Our bags were revamped and very sleek looking. 4" X 6" #102757 $4.50 for 50 bags. Perfect to display these Dark Chocolate Cadbury eggs. The only complaint I have is that most of the Cadbury eggs were broken, boo hoo. I only could save 1 other treat bagful. Of course the broken ones don't go to waste, they will just have to be eaten. Darn. They just were not pretty enough to be given out.


I stamped the image twice, once in Marina Mist and then in Staz-On Black. I colored the flowers and then cut out each one and placed on the blue image. I did not use the sayings in this stamp set but used my go to set-Teeny Tiny Wishes. This was the first Catalog year it became available in Clear mount. (w) #128748 $36.95, (c) #127802 $26.95. I still use wood for many of my word sets but I am thinking I just might like to have an extra set in clear.

Do you like Wood or Clear or the New Photopolymer sets? I do prefer Wood for stamps when I am going to do 3-D projects or Multi -Media because I use paints with them and they hold up better then the cling type. It all depends on preference.

The Big Shot was used here. I used the Coordinating Deco Labels Collection #130102 $24.95. The large Framelit was used for the topper, I cut it out and then scored it. Place on top of the bag and then stapled. To hide the staple I then stamped a Large Circle (2 1/2" Circle Punch #120906 $16.95) in Whisper White Cardstock and glued it down. Then I cut out a smaller Blue one to frame the stamped image. Cut it in 1/2 and separate and glue the white smaller piece to it. Easy and it adds to the image.


If you would like to place an order with me, click here, or below each of my Posts. The You're Lovely stamp set as I wrote before is Free with a $50.00 order. Place an order of $100 or more, you get 2 Free SAB items to choose from and so forth. AWESOME, but only 10 days left.
