Endless Birthday Wishes ~ May Photopolymer Stamp Set

I love the font on the new photopolymer stamp set for May.  Endless Birthday Wishes is so cute it might be one of those that sells out quickly.  Even the polka dot background included in the set will give it that extra subtle pop.  Click on the link below to view more details.

Hello, can you hear me?

Remember back in the day, actually yesterday, when you’re on your cell phone and the connection goes bad and you find yourself saying, “Hello, can you hear me?”  Well today I’m sharing a smart phone card that the recipient surely won’t have a problem communicating.  Needless to say if you’ve been following me for awhile, I’m in love with MFT (My Favorite Things) products.  My newbie for this month is the Smart Phone Die-namics using pictures.  A list of supplies will be at the end of this post.

March 1 pic

This card is a standard A2 (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″).   The background is clear embossed with MFT’s Jumbo Abstract Art stamp set. The photo is covered with a transparency to look more realistic.  It doesn’t photograph well, but looks cool in person.

This one was used as a card by itself.  I used the SU silver glimmer paper for the front of the phone. The chat bubbles are included with the Smart Phone die-namics set.

This is the inside of the card using the fun Friend Request stamp set that matches the die.

A Valentine Kiss

Who would have ever thought you love stamping so much that you would “KISS” your stamp.  For Valentine’s Day I’m bringing back an old technique presented by Stampin’ Up’s Emily Montoya.

I hope everyone gets to enjoy this sweet day with that special someone in your life.  If not, chocolate is a great substitute.  Happy Valentine’s!

January Scrapbook Class

This month I created clean and simple holiday pages.  The simplicity of my pages allow the girls to add more embellishments and bling.

Christmas 1

Christmas 3

Christmas 2

Highlights:  The Christmas tree was a die from Memory Box.  After it was cut out, I kept the stencil on it and added some light molding paste.  After that I carefully removed the stencil and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on it for the snowy, glittery affect on the tree.

Check out the great textured background behind the tree using the SU Stylish Stripes embossing folder.  I’m a big fan of My Favorite Things (MFT) products. The dies used are the Icicle Border, Winter Wreath, Banner Fishtails and December Memories.

I didn’t have time to post the December scrapbook class so I’m adding it to this post.

Thanksgiving 1

Thanksgiving 4

Thanksgiving 3

Stamps/Dies: MFT Autumn Wreath die and Thankful Leaves and matching dies

SU Ink: Early Espresso

Paper:  SU Cajun craze, Early Espresso, Crushed Curry, Old Olive
