Club Cards for April

These are two of the cards I think we will be making for our Stampin’ Club in April (the 18th!!).  I’m not sure yet if these are it, so stay tuned…


This one I CASE’d from Michele Force, almost exactly! 🙂  I just loved the colors and only make a few small changes.


Stamps: Big Bold Birthday (Make a Wish), Simple Birthday Thanks (the large cupcake stamp)

Cardstock: Brilliant Blue, Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Real Red

Ink: Basic Black, Brilliant Blue

Other: MM eyelets, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, 2 Way Glue, Crop-A-Dile, Dimensionals, Paper Crimper, Real Red 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon, Large Oval Punch, Linen Thread

This is the 2nd card—I’m really not sure about this one yet…


This one may wind up on the back burner until closer to fall and if the set makes it into the Fall/Winter Catalog 🙂

Stamps: Trendy Trees

Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive, Whisper White

Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Close to Cocoa

Other: 1/4 Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, bone folder (for scoring), dimensionals

I’m off to finish cutting more paper for some other cards we will be making! 🙂  TFL!

3 Tiered Cake Card

I just got my new 3-D Tiered Cake Die delivered Friday, and thought I would make a cake! 🙂


I used Pacific Point Cardstock for the inside and Good Morning Sunshie DSP for the “icing” on the sides.  Kiwi Kiss Ribbon finished it off.  This is my third attempt at making a cake, when the directions say to use card stock–use cardstock!! 🙂  After making two other cakes, one entirely out of DSP and one entirely out of cardstock, and this one a mix of the two, this one looks the best and folded the best.  So, the moral is, use cardstock for the inside and DSP for the decoration.  Also, another tip is to pull up just a little on the tab in the middle when you unfold it–it helps to get everything straightened out again.  Make sure you use sticky strip!

This looks overwhelming to make, but actually after making 3, it becomes quite fast and you can put all the sticky strip on at once and peel it off as needed.  The only problem I had was when the die cut the paper, in some places it would cut instead of score and I did have to use small pieces of scotch tape to make sure everything would hold together, but you can’t see it from the outside!! 🙂

The Tax Man Cometh…

I love tax time–how many people can say that?!?!  I love the refund that I get from him!  Oh, the benefits of having a child! 🙂

He brought me enough money to buy myself a new Bind-It-All Machine—pink, isn’t it a beauty??


So naturally, I had to make something with it! 🙂


I used the Old Olive DSP, Pretty In Pink for the scallop, Whisper White for the circle, and the flower stamp is from Happy Heart Day.  I also used Pretty In Pink 1/2 inch striped grosgrain ribbon, Wild Wasabi 1/2 inch striped grosgrain ribbon (retired), Chocolate Chip 1/4 inch Grosgrain Ribbon, Pretty In Pink 1/4 Grosgrain Ribbon, Old Olive Poly Twill Ribbon (retired) and Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon and Stampin’ Dimensionals and my Sakura Gelly Roll Clear Star Pen, and white 1/2 inch “O” wires, the Bind-It-All Machine (zutter), coasters

The coasters came from the Target Dollar Spot last summer–they had round and square ones and they are the perfect size for this type of project! 🙂
