click on the photo to see the details
This double pop-up card is made with the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set by Stampin' Up! This card is made with the same template as the previous card. When you pull up the message in back the center "Merry Christmas" pops up. The "Merry Christmas" stamp is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set by Stampin' Up! The stamps in that set are perfect to fit in small places.
I used Garden Green cardstock and printed paper from the Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper set.

I used the Make a Cake and the One in a Million stamp sets by Stampin' Up! to make this double pop-up card.
This pop-up card looks complicated but it really isn't. I had fun making it. When you push the top card down into the pocket the message card above the cake also disappears.
I also used Soft Suede ink, Perfect Peach ink, and the polka dot embossing folder.

family reunion

Husband out flying his pirate ship kite
I haven't posted any new cards for several days because I was playing at the beach. Well, most of the time I was having fun visiting and laughing with my cousins, aunts, uncles, parents and siblings. The beach wasn't as fun this week as it was last week because the wind was too strong. When we went down to the beach for a walk we got sand blasted!

Giant paper cupcakes
Aren't these cupcakes cute?! We were at a baby dedication and someone had made these to use as decorations, along with the pots of giant paper flowers in the background.
I think I was told this was an idea from the internet...possibly Martha Stewart, I'm not sure. I just think they turned out very cute.
The base is accordion folded paper covering a cottage cheese carton. The top is made with punched paper circles covering 1/2 a sphere of Styrofoam.

You can use a die cut for the snowflake on this card, or you can use a Cricut or punch. It is not a complicated card. It goes together quite quickly. I used an epoxy sticker in the center of the snowflake.

All Occasion Stampin' Up! Card Stampin' Up! greeting card by Trude Thoman

Cheery Hello card. Lively color combination for the hot days of summer! 
It was 91 degrees  today and finally just had to go down and sit by the river for some cool air. Sometimes I miss having an air conditioner in the house, but definitely not the electric bill that goes with it!

I believe the stamp is a retired Stampin' Up! stamp.

Floral Fancy Card

I made the tag with the embossing/stencil folder by Sizzix (I think that is who makes it). The folder cuts the tag and embosses it with one pass through the Big Shot. Then you open the back door of the folder before you remove the tag from the inside of the folder and apply color to the stencil areas. It turns out really neat. I made another card with a different embossing folder and stenciled it. Loved how it turned out too.
