Monochrome Celebrations

I am really loving how this card turned out.  I am planning to make a whole set in all of the new In Colors and give them as a gift set.

Just Jade is definitely becoming my favorite In Color this year.  Which do you like best?

Hooray for Hippos!!

As soon as I saw the Hippo and Friends bundle in the new Annual Catalog I knew I had to have it!  It was designed by Million Dollar Achiever Stampin Up Demonstrator Robyn Cardon.  I love how versatile the dies are…tons of label options!  The hippos and unicorns are so adorable!  I know I will be using this set a lot!

Here is a cute baby card I made recently.  I used my Stamparatus to do the 3 part stamping for the Hippo.  I first stamped the sold image in Gray Granite.  Then the body outline in Smoky Slate and finally the mouth and eyes in Smoky Slate.  Using the Stamparatus made it so easy to line everything up perfectly!

I hope you enjoy this card!

Love You More

My two youngest children are 14 years apart.

And the best of friends!

Whenever they say Goodbye they do the “Love You, Love You More, Love you Most” game.   So when I was playing around with the Nothing’s Better Than set I came up with this idea.  I plan to have Logan help me make a more feminine version to send to his big sister!

I am loving the new Playful Alphabet dies!

Happy Birthday America!

20200704_100659 (1)

Today in America, we are celebrating Independence Day!  Normally there are parades, festivals, and fireworks.  This year.  Not so much.  We have actually found some fireworks still happening if you stay in your car.  So we will be doing that at least.  John is a huge fan of fireworks, so we always see them whenever we can.

Today’s card was for a recent swap I participated in, and will be used later for an organization in Wisconsin called Badger Honor Flight.  The team I belong to donates hand made cards to this organization.  They are responsible for arranging for veterans to travel to Washington D.C. to see the memorials built in their honor.  We make sure that everyone on the plane on every flight gets a card from us during ‘mail call’.  Sadly the flights were canceled this year starting in April due to Covid-19.  Hopefully they can begin again next year.  If you want to donate cards to our cause please send me a message and I will provide the information.

Below are the items I used for this card.  Remember if you click on the images it will take you directly to my online store!

Have a great weekend and if you are in the U.S have a safe and happy holiday!
