Life is Grand with Simple Stamping

Sometimes a simple wish is all you need to make a birthday special. The fun way to switch up this card takes very simple stamping just one more step. There are so many options for this card with any of Stampin’ Up!’s beautiful DSP. I fell in love with the Painted Seasons DSP that was part of this year’s Sale-A-Bration offerings. Sometimes I wish paper could stick around just a little longer.

By simply trimming the card front in half and turning it sideways a fun and different look is created. Now all that is left is the decision of which side of the DSP you will let show. The best of mix and match.

Check out the instructions attached for an easy way to adhere the inside piece neatly under the front of the card.

It is so easy to make a variety of looks from the same pieces of paper! Each piece of DSP will create 3 cards! A great way to use up your stash 🙂

Luck of the Irish

Is March the luckiest month of the year?  The Irish in us would say YES!

This card has a little of everything to celebrate the hopefulness of March:

  • fun Irish colours (why else would we put orange and green together?)
  • good luck wishes (I’m wishing that winter will be over soon)
  • the four-leaf clover (not a shamrock, but close)
  • the pattern of a European football in the background (I mean everyone loves soccer, right?)

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  Sláinte!! But remember the real Irish don’t drink green beer!

Scrapbooking for the weather

Good morning everyone!

We are into our second snow day this week and the dogs are happy to see a foot of snow rather than a sheet of ice.  It brought to mind my December Scrapbook Class, so I thought I would share.  My crazy bunch of beagles have always loved a good snowfall.  They are now 10-1/2 years old and they still bound around like these pictures from when they were only 6 months old… maybe not for quite as long though 😉

Watermarked(2018-12-15-2107)
At this point the Spirited Snowmen and the Snowflake Trinket are retired products but the fun remains! I used various Blends colours to dress my snowmen for the cold.

Have a great day whatever your weather!

Hey Love for the Paper Craft Crew PCC325

This week’s Paper Craft Crew PCC325 came across my Facebook page at just the right moment this morning.  I was heading to my craft room on this very icy day to work on my cards for the ENSS Lunch Break Card Class.  As you may know I try to give this group one card to make (because it’s a high school lunch break) but show them different things they can do with one set of paper.  I immediately saw that this sketch would offer that opportunity.

PCC325

The class is a Valentine’s Day theme and the Hey Love stamp set is just the right amount of cute for the group!  I am also very happy to say that over the four cards I used every stamp in the set!  That hardly ever happens….

Here is my card for the sketch:Watermarked3(2019-02-06-1527)

Happy St. Mother’s Day

My mother is a saint!  Well, at least I think so! Plus, she’s married to an Irish man.  And I think she should be recognized more often than just one day a year!

When I saw this sentiment in the new Well Said stamp set and dies, I knew that this was the card for her.  Perfect for Valentines Day, St. Patrick’s Day or Mother’s Day.  Maybe I should make 3… heehee.

I’m not usually one to get the heart sets but since I didn’t have any, this one made it into my craft room.  The very first thing I was trying to do is find a use for them other than the obvious.  This cute little shamrock made with hearts was what came to mind.

Now I’d better get to work on my other heartfelt creations!  Have an inky day 🙂
