Moon Baby Cuteness


I couldn't bear to part with the Moon Baby stamp set when it retired, so here I am creating with it-win!! I'm sure I will use it a lot. Aren't those clouds adorable? They are cut from the Up and Away Thinlits that go with the stamp set Lift Me Up (see yesterday's post if you missed it). Those clouds are invaluable for any sky scene, whether you stamp them first or just cut them out easily with the Big Shot. My card was inspired by Carl Arneson and I found it on Pinterest.


You can't really tell, but I used Wink of Stella on the clouds and the moon, baby and star. I love the sprinkle of shine it adds.

Thanks for looking! Go create something today! Shop with me any time.

Catalog Inspired Lift Me Up


This card was in the Annual Catalog. I didn't have the same paper to peek out from the beautiful Whisper White balloon, or the ribbon to go alongside the cloud strip, but I made do and I love how it turned out.


This stamp set, Lift Me Up, is not new this year, but I spent the last year debating if I should buy it or not. When I earned some merchandise from my team leader, I knew that it was time for this set to be part of my library of bundles. Those shapes are easily cut after stamping because of the matching Up and Away Thinlits.

Thanks for looking today. I hope I lifted your spirits! I'd love to read your comments, so please take a moment to leave one.

Painted Harvest Birthday


I like to CASE cards, which means Copy And Share with Everyone. Sometimes I have time to sit down and stamp, but no ideas on what do make. I will search Pinterest (using a stamp set name) and see what others have done. I can make the card exactly like they have, or change it up a bit.


Other places for inspiration are my fellow demonstrators and their blogs or the Annual Catalog that Stampin' Up! puts out with wonderful photos to help us all create. This time I used the Stampin' Success Magazine, which is mailed to all demonstrators. I made the card pretty much exactly as they did. I love that it only takes a 3" x 3" square of the In Color Designer Series Paper. That means from every 6" x 6" piece of the paper, you can make 4 of these cards. The rest is stamping! I used the Painted Harvest stamp set for the flower and leaves. My sentiment is from Special Celebrations stamp set.

By using the Stamparatus, I lined up those 2-step stamping flower petals and was able to place the middle of the flower in the perfect place every time. Making multiples or having the ladies make this card at my workshop has never been easier!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a great day.

Nugget Firecrackers


Yesterday I showed you a #freedom card made using the scraps from this project. I found the idea for this shape of treat giveaway on Pinterest, thanks to Kay Cogbill.

There is a very thin strip of card stock between the nuggets that is topped with two stars. (I used Tear and Tape to secure the candies together and catch the 1/16" star wand. 

I made my own paper by stamping on Very Vanilla card stock. I cut the paper into 1" strips and wrapped them around two Hershey Nugget candies.


I used the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set. Two of the candles were my firecrackers, and the sprinkles and baby triangles were my sparks. I used Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler inks to stamp.

I'm glad you came by today! Thank you! Please leave a comment so I know you were here, won't you?
