Happy Tuesday! Our weeks just keep flying along, don’t they?
I mean – I put my Christmas tree up yesterday!
😂😂😂 Made you look at the calendar, didn’t I?
But you KNOW that’s right around the corner! Once the kids go “back to school” – however that looks in 2020! – it’s a down-hill slide to the furor of the holidays! 🙂
One holiday that comes year-round (okay – it’s more of an “occasion” than a “holiday”!) is…birthdays! And that’s what I made for today – a birthday card using a sweet little stamp set in the Annual Catalog called…Hooray to You! What? You missed it? Check page 104. Yup – I think a lot of folks might have paged right past it – but…I love it. Especially when you add a little Flowers for Every Season DSP! Take a look-see:
Happy Friday!! I hope you’ve had an awesome week. And are looking forward to whatever “the weekend” means to you these days! 🙂
If you were able to join me for my YouTube video yesterday – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me! If not, but you’d like to see the replay…here ’tis!
The new Flowers for Every Season Suite (coming soon – like 3 Jun – in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!) is the DSP that showcases the new 2020-2022 In Colors. This gorgeous, flower-strewn paper, showcases the new colors perfectly. I used it – and the coordinating Flowers For Every Season Memories & More Card Pack – to make a super easy fun fold card for you. Take a look-see:
How pretty is that paper? Every one of the new In Colors – prefectly blended by the genius Stampin’ Up! designers!
This card is super easy! I started with a regular 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ card base and scored and folded it at 2 1/8″ and again at 6 3/8″.
Next, I matted two pieces of the Flowers for Every Season DSP on Just Jade card stock (Bumble Bee for the video card) and then adhered them to the gates with Liquid Glue.
I used Memories & More Card Pack elements – matted on Just Jade (or Bumble Bee) – for the panels. Each panel was cut down to fit. When I adhered the panels – the top one is adhered on the left-side gate and the bottom sentiment panel is adhered only on the right-hand gate.
I tied a little bow out of the one of the new 2020-2022 In Color RIbbons and adhered it with a Glue Dot. A 2020-2022 Enamel Dot finished off the card front!
On the inside, I matted a Whisper White panel on the appropriate mat-color and then into the card base with Liquid Glue. Then I added one of the pretty stickers from the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Card Pack. And…that was it for the card. Easy peasy!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another of the flower stickers on the front…
…and a little more of the DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I love this beautiful Flowers for Every Season DSP – it looks like a wonderful cottage garden – a new one on every sheet! And the Memories & More Card Pack (not just for scrapbooking!) is amazing – chock-a-block full of designs in small and large formats, flower, leaves and sentiment stickers, and sentiments!! I hope you like!

That moment in the morning – is it REALLY morning if it’s still dark outside?? – when your mom INSISTS upon getting up – turning on a light – and getting dressed. Going to sit with that danged cat and drink coffee – then get on that cursed machine…. ;(
