On the Ocean Handmade Card

On the Ocean Handmade Card

To be honest, I’m not quite sure why the One the Ocean stamp set caught my eye, but it did.  May it was the water stamp, I do like the swirls in that particular stamp!  Maybe it was the water and boat dies that coordinate with the set.  Who knows!

In any case, I did buy the bundle and I have had opportunity to create one card with it so far which I thought I would share it with you.  I created this card as an example of a new fancy fold I was sharing with my Technique Club earlier in the month.

Nested Friends Thank You

Nested Friends Thank You

For some reason the bird stamp sets always seem to catch my attention.  I’m not sure why.  I’m not a bird watcher and I can’t name birds other than a few basic kinds, but I do seem to like decorating with them and making cards with them.

All that to say, of course the Nested Friends stamp set caught my attention in the mini catalog.  I particularly like the fact that there are dies to cut out a nice nest!

Here is a card we made with the Nested Friends stamp set in the Fancy Folds Class recently.Continue reading

Hoot Hoot You’re so Cute!

Hoot Hoot You’re so Cute!

Have you noticed the Adorable Owls which are free with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration?  Those little guys are pretty cute, aren’t they?  I need to spend some more time with them.  Things like taxes have been taking up some of my creative time lately.  Blah!

I did make this one card which is quite simple and easy to make.Continue reading

Greatest Journey Suite from Stampin’ Up!

Greatest Journey Suite from Stampin’ Up!

The Greatest Journey stamp set is a fun one, but when you add in the coordinating dies it gets so much better!  The stamp set didn’t particularly strike my fancy at first until I saw the dies.  The dies add so many more options to this set!

You can check out the entire Greatest Journey Suite on pages 58-59 of the Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog.  I’ve just posted a picture of the stamp set and dies below for you.

Taco Fiesta Handmade Card

Taco Fiesta Handmade Card

I haven’t posted a project in forever, I know.  Rather than making excuses, let me get right to showing you something new!

I have two cards to share with you which were made with the new Taco Fiesta stamp set which can be found on page 48 of the Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog.  What a cute set!  Have you noticed it?  Honestly it can be easy to overlook the sets that don’t have an entire suite of coordinating products like the dies and Designer Series Paper, but don’t overlook this one, especially if you like tacos!  (I happen to be  huge fan of Mexican food myself!)Continue reading
