Number of Years & Counting...

I had a special card request for someone who was turning 95!!!  This is a rare occasion, so I made a special card just for them :)  I pulled out the Number of Years stamp set and Large Numbers Framelits.  The colors are Tranquil Tide, Very Vanilla and Early Espresso.
I love the Wood Textures Design Series Pack!  Those 6 by 6 inch pages are double sided with woodland wonder.  This is the perfect design series paper for making guy's cards.  Here are all of the Stampin' Up! items I used for todays card.

Coffee Cafe' for #GDP096

Today I am playing along with the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP096This week we are CASEing a gorgeous project by Tanja Kolar, an oh-so-talented member of the Global Design Team. Here is the project this week that you can CASE:
CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit Remember that when you CASE a project you can take what you like from the design and make it your own. It might be the stamp set - the colors, the layout, the flowers, whatever you like that has inspired you to make a card of your own. To play along, head over to the Global Design Project and see what the design team came up with this week. 
I chose to case the layout of Tanya's card using the Coffee CafĂ© stamp set and coordinating Coffee Cups Framelits.  This was one of my absolute favorite items in the Stampin' Up! annual catalog!!!   I love how the coffee cups in the Coffee Break DS Paper cut out perfectly using the framelits dies.
This embossing folder in the background was a gift I received from someone who happens to know how much I love all things coffee.  It turned out so cute as the white on white background of this card.  It definitely makes me want to make a Starbucks run :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Here are all of the Stampin' Up! products I used for this card.

Carols of Christmas for #tttc006

Today I played along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  Make sure to head over and play along!  For this challenge, the board was created by Design Team Member Shannon Fralish.  Take some inspiration from the challenge board below, using three elements in a row of your choice. Whatever row inspires you is what you are challenged you to create! 
I chose the diagonal line across the board using the shadow, fuzzy, and wood grain trio.  The background edge was die cut in Smoky Slate using the new Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies that are on a special pre-order for demonstrators only in July, but will be available for everyone to pre-order on August 1. 
The background die cut shadows over the Bermuda Bay card stock base.  I stamped the sentiment in Bermuda Bay onto a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Wood Textures paper stack and then I embossed this piece with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.  
I used the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies for the background trees that were cut out using the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  The trees look like they are covered in snow this way.  Then I added a few Pool Party Sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment along with two Enamel Shape stars to the background border.  Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Just Add Color for #GDP095

I am loving the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP095 this weekThis week we are going to have a blast with the theme of Kids!  What comes to your mind when you think of this theme?
We TOTALLY can't wait to see what you come up with.  To play along, head over to the Global Design Project and see what the design team came up with this week. 
I used one of my favorite design series paper stacks from Stampin' Up! called Just Add Color for this fun interactive card.  I made it for a little boy whose birthday is coming up the end of July.  He will love pulling out the four little coloring pages and being able to keep them inside his "card". 
The Circle Tab Punch made it super easy to create little handles to slide each piece in and out of the plastic sleeves.  The Happy Birthday is a die cut from the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die from Stampin' Up!. 
This was such a fun Kids Project to make.  Here is a picture and a list of all the supplies to make this interactive card.
  • Card Base: 6 inch by 12 inch card stock, scored at 6 inches
  • Two pieces of ribbon 24 inches each
  • Four punched circle tabs
  • One Die Cut Happy Birthday Thinlits
  • Four 4-3/4 inch by 4 inch pieces of Just Add Color Design Series Paper
  • Four 4-1/4 inch by 5-1/2 inch pieces of card stock
  • One piece of 5 inch by 5 inch ds paper for front of card
  • One piece of 5-1/2 inch by 5-1/2 inch card stock for front of card
  • Four clear plastic envelopes 4-1/2 inch by 7-1/4 to flap end, then cut to 5-1/2 inches on non flap end
  • Tear and Tape Adhesive
