Patterned Occasions Thanks a Ton Friend

Here is another version of a card we made at our Graham class last week.  Same layout – different view.  I love when we find card layouts that are so versatile.

This card was made with the Patterned Occasions Sale-A-Bration set and Tiny Tiny Wishes from the 2012-2013 Catalog.  Again, I hate the colors did not come out as well as I had hoped.  I really need to invest in a better camera and photography station.

I shared this card with my dear friend Charlotte who gave me some inspiration for some of my political friends.  I’m going to have to play around with MDS and come up with her fantastic idea.  I’ll share it with you soon 🙂

Patterned Occasions Smarty Pants

I wish the Calypso Coral, Soft Suede, and Pool Party paper would have come out a little better in the picture.  I am horrible about ordering Designer Series Paper (DSP) – I mean horrible.  So, I often find myself creating my own DSP with embossing folders or stamps.

We made a few different designs of this card using the Patterned Occasions set out of the Sale-A-Bration set at our Graham class.  I am sending this version off to Operation Write Home.  Ken bought some index cards and wrote several notes on them for me to give the girls when they need a pick me up or did some special.  I thought what a great card for our Military to send home to a child or adult when they did something special.

Pin Wheel Wishes Your Way

I just love this card – so glad I found the idea from a fellow demonstrator named Mary!  That’s one of the best parts of being in the Stampin’ Up! family.  When the mojo just isn’t there, which quite frankly – I’ve had a super hard time finding it; I can turn to another demonstrator for inspiration.

We made this card at our Graham class on Sunday.  Wishes Your Way is a set of all occasions greetings.  The gals used the birthday, thinking of you, or the encouragement phrase.   This was also one of the cards some of the gals created for Operation Write Home.  Bet you are wondering how we made the pin wheels aren’t you?  We used the fabulous new pin wheel die out of the spring catalog!

Oh Whale

I just love, love, love the Oh, Whale.  This was a super fun hearts candy box cover we created out our Graham class on Saturday.  When you pull the ribbon our box of hearts comes out.  This is the perfect Valentine of boy or girls, kids or adults.  I had to had a little bling with a rhinestone.  I think it adds just a bit more too it.  I’ve got to get busy, I need to make 20 of these for Jackie to give out at her Job’s Daughters meeting.  Oh gosh, we still need to make Valentine’s for her class, her Girl Scout troop, and Wynter’s cheer team.  I guess, I better get on that!

Cross My Heart

I’m excited to share my love of paper-crafting for a cause that is very close to my heart.  At our Graham class we will begin to create an additional card to be donate to Operation Write Home (OWH).  OWH provides handmade greeting cards to our military serving overseas to send home to loved ones.  This non-profit is important to me on many levels and even more so now.  Please consider being a part of this cause and whether you join us monthly on your own.

I just think Cross My Heart is the cutest dang set ever!  It’s great for kids, adults, word lovers, non-word lovers, word search lovers – A-N-Y-O-N-E!

Vintage Verses in a Collage Curios

Here is another card we created at our Lakewood stamp camp.  What is great about this card is how easy it is to mass produce and a great way to introduce new stampers to several different products and techniques at one time without overwhelming them.  Let see, we did two step stamping, using a boarder punch, a regular punch, using markers on stamps, and huffing.  The comment made to me after I sat with a first time gal was, “Wow I really can stamp!”

Recover Rapidly

Jackie made a card last night for a friend at school who fractured her leg.  I have to say – I am not impressed with the color choice.  blue and orange – ugh!  I am a crimson and silver kind of girl 🙂  Blue and orange are Jackie’s school colors and the colors of our rival high school.  It just kills me to dress her in blue and orange.

I have to say the card came out great!  She choose an image out of the Patterned Occasions set you can choose for free from the Sale-A-Brations catalog.


* sorry for the blurry picture – Jackie took the picture and sealed the card up before we could get another picture.

Whole Latte Love

We had a great time Saturday afternoon at the Lakewood stamp class!  Lots of laughs and a few new gals joined us as well.  I have really fallen in love with the Pattered Occasions set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  There are so much fun uses for the different stamps – covers just about anything you you may need.  I love all the texture and color in this card.  What makes this card so great to me is it can be used as an anytime love card – not just for Valentine’s.

Hearts a Flutter

I have to admit when Stampin’ Up! began to create bundles with stamps and framelits, I fell in love!  I am completely addicted to framelits.  I think I love them as much as I love my children.  Hearts a Flutter stamp set and framelits is the perfect set to have in your collection.  pennants are so trendy right now.  This bundle makes it so easy to quickly create a pennant.  This is one of the cards we made in the Lakewood class today.  Did I also mention how much I love the More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper is?   Gosh, I sure am saying “love” a lot in this post.  Maybe its all the chocolate, sweathearts, and Valentine’s day that is making me go all mushy!
