Easter Treats for Friday

Easter is right around the corner and the Sisters in Stamping are posting Easter treats for Fabulous Friday projects. Here is my project for this week--

 I made a little carrot using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch (#133324, $22.95). After I punched it I ran it through the BigShot with the Fancy Fan embossing folder (#127751, $7.95).
 I sure hope that this punch makes the new 2014-15 IB&C, I think it would make fabulous gift tags for Christmas presents.

I tucked a small Lindt milk chocolate bunny inside and stamped Happy Easter, tied it up with 3 pieces of 3/8" Stitched Satin Gumball Green Ribbon. Which reminds me that ribbon will be retiring soon along with stamps, Designer Series Paper and accessories-- the Annual Retirement Sale. Stampin' Up! has changed both categories, stamps and accessories to WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. The list will be posted this coming Monday April 21, send me a note and I'll make sure you get a copy hot off the presses.

Thank-you for dropping by--
Happy Stamping, Karla c(:

Quatrefancy Friday

Well hey there! It's Friday once again and the Sisters in Stamping are using pretty paper. Here is my card for this week--

I used the stamp set Hello, Lovely (2013-14 IB&C, pg.22) and Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper pack (#130141, $12.95). I used a technique I have wanting to try for some time now called Starburst. I found this video by Dawn O. that gives fantastic instructions, it was easy and fun to put this card together.

Happy Stamping! See you next week-- Karla c(:

Spring Fever for Friday

    I don't know about you but I'm really tired of snow. I picked Spring cards for the Fabulous Friday post this week on the Sisters in Stamping blog hoping that just the mere thought of flowers and butterflies would brighten my spirits. Here is my project--

    The original idea came from a card that my good friend Jen Sannes sent to me a couple of months ago-- it was SO DANG CUTE I had to CASE it!! I used Sahara Sand and Wisteria Wonder. Speaking of Jen, she has started a new venture here is a link for you to go and check it out-- leave a comment for her so she knows you stopped by!

    You will have to go over and check out what the other Sisters have made. Come back for next week for some projects made with Designer Series Paper.

Thank-you for coming by!

Easter Cards for the Sisters in Stamping

We still have snow on the ground here in South Dakota, but you can tell that Spring is right around the corner. Time to start getting those Easter cards made, which is exactly why the Sisters in Stamping are giving out ideas this week. Here is my card--

We made this card last night at my Stamp-A-Stack (last Friday of the month) and it was a big hit. I used the new Hardwood background stamp from the Spring Mini Catalog-- first time and I really like it! I hope it makes it into the New 2014-15 IB&C.

Thank-you for coming by! Karla c(:

Pinterest Inspired Friday

Hello- and welcome to today's Fabulous Friday post from the Sisters in Stamping. It's Debbie's turn over at the Sister's blog and she picked a card or project that is inspired by something I've pinned over at Pinterest. Here is my inspiration pin--
love this color palette - shades of coral and mint
Isn't a beautiful cake? I just loved the softness of the colors and all of the ruffles as soon as I saw this Pin.  Here is my 8x8 scrapbook page that I created using this picture as inspiration--


We made this page at the last Mother Daughter Stamping Class. I used some of the paper that is part of Sale-A-Bration (purchase $50 of Merchandise, pick a free product as a thank-you). Which reminds me
  SAB ends March 31, 2014.... contact me today if you'd like to place an order. I repeated the ruffle theme from the cake with the 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim in Crisp Cantaloupe (#130021, $8.95) along the side of the Whisper White piece of card stock. 


The heart accent on the side was made using the arrow from the Thinlit Card Die set called
 Label Cards (Item #133479, $32.95). I punched 2 holes in the heart (Full Heart, #119883, $16.95) cut the arrow in 1/2 and used some glue to stick it down on the back side. I think it turned out really cute and the girls really enjoyed making it.

Thank-you for stopping by and make sure you come back next week to see some awesome Easter cards.
Happy Stampin' -- Karla c(:

Happy Heart Day!

Well, hey there and welcome! The Sisters are showin' off some Valentine card this week, here is my card--

I used the Sale-a-Bration stamp set called Banner Blast and the coordinating Banner punch to make this fun little Valentine. The little itty bitty heart is from the Owl Builder (#118074, $16.95), I used Red Glimmer paper (#121790, $4.95)-- it's exactly what this card needed, a little sparkle!

Hope you are having a great Valentine's Day! Happy Stamping, Karla c(:
