Birthday Card Swap Ideas From the Alaska Incentive Trip!

Hey there! In case you are wondering why I no longer use "Stampin' Up!" as the beginning of my blog post title, I recently found out that using "Stampin' Up!" in my URL was prohibited in the Demonstrator Manual. I want to be compliant with all of Stampin' Up!'s rules, so I immediately made the change. I'm STILL using ALL Stampin' Up! ALL the time, so not to worry!

Today I have a fun group of birthday-themed swap inspiration to share with you!

First, a cute little pink (but not drunk!) elephant from A Little Wild combined with Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper. The greeting is from Special Celebrations.

Next, this swap combines the Best Bunny Bundle (stamps and punch) with Pocketfull of Sunshine!

Bike Ride Stamps and Build a Bike Framelits are combined with Detailed With Love and the Detailed Trio Punch:

The Botanical Bliss Bundle (stamps & framelits) are combined with Stitched Labels Framelits:

Sponging, punches, and creative use of the Fine Tip Glue Pen combine with a Special Celebrations greeting for a lovely card!

Enjoy Life and Country Road Cruise Swaps!

Hey there! I'm back again today with more cruise swaps to share with you! Today's creations were made with the Enjoy Life  and Country Road stamp sets!

The creator of this fun silhouette-style card sponged multiple colors to create an lovely sunset look, using a punched-circle-mask to create the setting sun!

The inside revealed more sponged sunset layers and a continuation of the sentiment on the front!

I love the weather vane stamped directly on the Wood Textures Designer Paper! A bit of Linen Thread tied in a bow is a lovely textured touch!

Stampers Dozen Blog Hop August Color Challenge!

970616_10152216696390070_1901389811_n

Hey there and welcome to the August edition of the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop! Our theme this month is this Color Challenge:
36358443_10212498301161140_7104681394340626432_n

So summery, don't you think?

After I pulled out all three colors of card stock and inkpads, I was stumped for  a bit. My first thought was a floral set, but then I pulled out the Time for Tea bundle!

I embossed the Crumb Cake layer with the Climbing Vine Textured Impressions folder, then used stamped-off Crumb Cake ink on the backgrounds of the white doily cut with a Spot of Tea Framelit behind the teacup and the greeting punched with the Pretty Label Punch. I added a Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle bow for more girly-ness!

Inside I used another lovely sentiment from Time for Tea.
