B.Y.O.P. Graduation Card

It has been some time since I have created anything with the B. Y. O. P. (buy your own present) stamp set so I thought I would pull it out and play with it.

I don't think I had used the grad one previously and it is that time of the year, so I created this.

I chose these colors because I made it for a color challenge that included; Tempting Turquoise, Real Red and Black.

Rainbow Encouragement Card

When I saw this rainbow set in the catalog, I knew I had to have it! Then I just got busy with other things and hadn't had a chance to use it. I finally pulled it out and made a quick card with it. I love the encouragement in this sentiment.

I stamped the rainbow on Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment is stamped on vellum. I attached the vellum to the Whisper White cardstock with the ribbon.

Boys Will Be Boys Thank You card

Today I am going to share a card that my daughter-in-law made to send to the children that came to my grandson's birthday party.

She used the Boys Will Be Boys stamp set from Stampin' Up! It was perfect because he loves Lego! I don't think there are many boys that don't. Even my boys like Legos, and they are all grown up!

Stamp With Trude, Stampin' Up!, Thank You card, Legos, Boys Will Be Boys

This Boys Will Be Boys stamp set is going away at the end of the month, so get it while you still can! It is even on sale right now.

A day late, but in the ballpark! 

Do you have one of those lives? Not enough hours to do everything you need to do let alone do the things you want to do?

Sometimes things crowd out my blogging. Some things in life just can't be put off. So, here it is, late again but I think it is worth the wait. This card is my take on a card that is in the annual catalog. Can you find the original? 

Timeless Love, Anniversary card, Stampin' Up!, Stamp with Trude, floral, watercolor technique, Tuesday Tutorial

This is the Timeless Love stamp set. It is in the 2016 annual catalog and is also in the new 2017 catalog.

March Paper Pumpkin Remake

I just figured out that I hadn't shared the March Paper Pumpkin with you. This is my version of the kit, which is a little different than the actual kit. You can see the actual kit on Pinterest or You Tube.

Paper Pumpkin, March 2016, Stampin Up, Stamp with Trude, Thank you card, You're Sublime, Chalk Lines

The kit came with cards that were meant to be for birthdays or other occasions when a person would include gift cards. The small ones are the actual gift card holders. I created them to use separately. The large card became a Thank you card because I use quite a few of them ☺. Have to thank my great customers, you know!

I used the You're Sublime stamp set that will be carrying over to the next catalog. The border at the bottom is the chalk lines stamp set and it is on the retiring products list.

Sorry I don't have a current Tuesday Tutorial for you this week. I may or may not be able to get one posted this week. It is one of THOSE weeks. I did get my Stampin' Up! Preorder sent in today for the new annual catalog! Can hardly wait to get my hands on some new colors and products!

Have a blessed day,
