Stamp-A-Stack Heartfelt Blooms Simple Stripes

The March Stamp-A-Stack was on Saturday. Since it's the last month of Sale-A-Bration, I decided we would do three cards with S-A-B items. Here's the first one, which is CASE'd (Copy And Share Everything!) from a swap I received from Lisa B.

Colors: Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Whisper White

The embossing folder is 6 x 6, so you can put your card stock in it in either direction. I decided to make two samples so I could show it both ways. Which do you like better? I like them both and can't decide!

Paper Pumpkin April 2017 A Sara Thing- Part 2

Yesterday I shared the cards I made with the April 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit "A Sara Thing" according to the directions. Today I'm sharing the rest of my cards. They're basically the same with minor variations.

The last heart I colored with Stampin' Blends 

"Friend Ever" is from the August 2014 Paper Pumpkin kit, "Seriously Amazing". The stamp is actually "To The Best Friend Ever" but I only inked up part of it.

"Sister" is from "Thoughtful Banners" in the Annual Catalog

"Son" is from the May 2014 Paper Pumpkin Kit "Hey Man".

Paper Pumpkin April 2017 A Sara Thing

I need to get caught up with my Paper Pumpkin kits again! I was trying to share them in order, but that didn't go so well for awhile. I'll try to do better, but no promises! Anyway, I left off with March 2017, so here's April 2017, "A Sara Thing". This kit was designed by Sara, who is the CEO of Stampin' Up! and Shelli's daughter. Shelli started Stampin' Up!almost 30 years ago!

Here are my cards following the directions:

Even after making all of the cards in the kit, I had enough Washi Tape to put some on the insides:

Tomorrow I'll share the rest of my cards!

If you like this kit, I have another brand new kit FOR SALE! It's still sealed and comes with the stamps, watercolor pencils, and ink spot. I'm asking $17 plus postage.

Chase's Magical Day Picture Perfect Castle Birthday

Our son Chase turned 22 last week. He's always been in to magic, wizards and knights, so of course I had to buy the Magical Day Bundle and make his card with it! I found a really cute card that looks like a castle and has a drawbridge that opens on Pinterest, so I followed the directions from Susan L. and made my own version. It's customized for Chase!

The front of the card

Open up the side flaps...

...and lower the draw bridge!

Colors: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Smoky Slate, Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White

Chase's favorite color is green, so I used several shades. His girlfriend has dark hair and loves purple. And the pony he had when he was growing up was black with a blaze and two hind socks.

Did you notice I turned the unicorn into a horse?

I covered the horn with Washi Tape,

inked up the stamp,

took the Washi Tape off and stamped- no horn!

Used the framelit to cut it out,

then trimmed off the horn.

Jazzy and Chase!
