A Birthday Celebration the Stampin' Way!

Welcome to the February Stampin' Celebration sketch challenge (SC123).  

My husband's birthday is today and so I knew I wanted to make him a birthday card!  This was a great sketch for his card!

For this card I pulled out the Big News Stamp Set from Stampin' Up (2015-2016 Annual Catalog)!  I embellished it with stamps from the 2016 Occasions Catalog from Stampin' Up, Balloon Celebration and Timeless Textures.  The color scheme is Pear Pizzazz, Island Indigo and Lost Lagoon.

A fun card and I hope he likes it!

Have a great day!

More Hugs and Kisses

I couldn't resist, I really liked the arrows in the Stampin' Celebration inspiration challenge so I decided to try to make them with paper!

The arrows were made with the chevron border punch from Stampin' Up! 2015-2016 Annual catalog and the hearts from the Circle Card Thinlits Dies.  I stamped Tip Top Taupe cardstock with the Hardwood Background stamp using Early Espresso ink.  

I like the fun look of the card.  Happy Day to you!

Stampin' Celebration Hugs and Kisses

Wow, February already!  And time for this month's inspiration challenge from Stampin' Celebration (SC122)!

I was drawn by so many elements in these pictures, but my favorite was the arrows!  I love the rustic look of them.  I also saw some clothes pins arrows at Target in the dollar section and I was excited to recreate them for this project!

The bag has very little stamping, only the strings were stamped using the Balloon Celebration stamp set from the Stampin' Up! 2016 Occasions Catalog. The rest was die cut using the Mini Treat Bags Thinlits dies, the Circle Card Thinlits dies and punches.  A pretty quick and fun project to make!

Hope you are inspired to play along with us!
