Catalog Case

Good morning, today I have quick card for you. I think we sometimes over look the Note cards on page 160.  They are a great price at only  $5.95 for 20 cards and envelopes. We used them the other night at club and made this simple little birthday card based on the card on page 44 of the Catalog. We used Melon Mambo, So Saffron and Gumball Green ink pads and Stampin' Write Markers. The Happy Birthday is from the Bring on the Card Stamp Set and was stamped in Basic Gray Classic Ink. We used two punches the Petite Pennants Builder and the Circle from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. We added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the tops of the hats to add just a bit a bling. As quick as these cards are to make you could make a whole bunch in a variety of colors to have on hand for all those last minute birthday card needs.
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day! Tonya

Another Star!

Good afternoon, I have another star card for you today. This one is from Stamp Club and since I am sure you want to know all the fun supplies that it uses I will get right to it. The card stock is Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Summer Starfruit, and Pool Party, the designer series paper is Comfort Cafe. For Big Shot items I used the Chevron Folder and the Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die. I used three punches including the Petite Pennants Builder, 1 3/4" Circle and 1 3/8" Circle Punch. The stamp set is Petite Pairs that was stamped with Midnight Muse. The Chevron Folder was sponged with Soft Suede Classic Ink and Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon was added to the card. All supplies are available through Stampin'Up! and I can help you place your order either giving me a call or email me. You can also order online anytime night or day at Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Tonya

Summer Smooches Headband and Flower

 Hello, long time no post. Sorry about that. I do have things to share and more that I am working on but no time to write posts. Wish they would just write themselves. Today I wanted to share with you a headband and flower that I made recently to match the skirt I made for my daughter in this post. I found the headband idea on Pinterest and then added the flower which can be moved to either side as it has a pin back on it. The fabric is our Summer Smooches and then I added Brights Designer Buttons in the center of the flower. I love that the headband is reversible and either I or my daughter can wear it. If you would like your own headband let me know and I will be happy to make one for you. It can have a flower or not and I will make any color that you want. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Tonya

Blog Hop July Style

Hello and welcome to another round of Blog Hop. If you are joining me from Rose's Blog thank you for stopping by and if this is your first stop then just follow click on the next button at the bottom of this post and it will take you on your way to Dawn's Blog. I can't wait to see what everyone has made today. I made three projects for today one with the help of my daughter. I love to get to stamp and create with her. The first is our cupcake topper which will look cute of the cupcakes we finished yesterday. We started with a sucker stick and then embellished it with the Petite Pennant Punch, Baja Breeze Seam Binding, the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set and Bitty Banners Framelits, Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Fancy Fan Folder, perfect Polka Dots Folder, Rhinestones, Baja Breeze and Primrose Petals Stampin Write Markers, Patio Party Designer Series Paper, Summer Starfruit Card Stock, Baja Breeze Card Stock, Midnight Muse Card Stock, Whisper White Card Stock and Primrose Petals Card Stock.
 Our second project continues with the Birthday/ Cupcake theme and is a mini card that will be perfect for a gift. The card is made using the Petal Cone Die. I cute the base of the card out with Whisper White Card Stock and then added all the extras. The Designer Series Paper is Patio Party and the icing on the cupcake is Primrose Petals Card Stock that has had texture added with the new Fancy Fan Folder, 2 Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds. To make the cupcake liner look more realistic I first punched the top with the Scallop Punch then scored it with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and folded it accordion style an added it to my base with Sticky Strip. I stamped with Itty Bitty Banners Sentiment with Midnight Muse on Whisper White Card Stock and cut it out with the Bitty Banners Framelits.  Now on to our final project which is a great card for a guy or for the 4th of July.

With no star punch currently available I wanted to make one with what Stampin'Up! does offer so my star is made using the Petite Pennants Punch, Cherry Cobbler Card Stock and Crumb Cake Designer Series Paper. Just punch out five and attach them at the corners for a star. The sentiment which is inked with Midnight Muse and Cherry Cobbler Stampin Write Markers is from the Word Play Stamp Set and was punched out with the 1 3/8" Circle Punch. I wanted a rustic look for this card so I used the direct to paper technique on the Midnight Muse Card Stock with the Craft Whisper White Stamp Pad and added the drag marks before I did some paper piercing on the top right hand corner. I added just a bit of Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine before adding the Crumb Cake base and this card is ready to send to a special Birthday guy in my life. Well, thanks again for stopping by and please be sure and leave us a message and let us know you were here. Have a great day, Tonya

A Change of Punch

 Good morning and Happy 4th of July. I hope whatever your plans are that you stay safe and enjoy yourself. I am sharing two cards today with the same layout and supplies except the flowers are made with different punches. I think I like the upper card the best but let me know what you think. I saw this layout on several cards and the idea to use the Scallop Circle Punch and the Blossom Punch with the Betsy's Blossom Stamp Set has been floating around the so I am not sure who originally thought of it but thank you to whoever did. The large flower looks really nice punched out. The other supplies include Sahara Sand Card Stock, Whisper White Card Stock, Baja Breeze Card Stock, Floral District Designer Series Paper, 1/4" Stitched Whisper White Ribbon, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punches, Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, Bitty  Banners Framelits, Itty Bitty  Banners Stamp Set, Summer Starfruit Classic Ink Pad, and Midnight Muse Classic Ink Pad. I will be sending these cards out to my customers that ordered last month as I thank you for their order.
Tomorrow is blog hop day and this month we will be using the theme of America/Birthday's so please stop back by tomorrow and see what I have to share and then take the journey to see what the other blog hop participates also made. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day, Tonya
