Stampin’ Up! Meet the 2016-2018 In Colors!

Good morning, y’all!  It’s the first day of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog – have you already placed your orders?!? I have!! 🙂

I thought I’d share a few little Thank You note cards that I made – they’re all the same cute butterfly design, with some Painter’s Palette and Perfectly Wrapped stamp set images thrown in.  Take a look-see:

So – I started with Whisper White Notecards and Envelopes.  Each card has a Whisper White card front and a mat in one of the five new In Colors:  Flirty Flamingo, Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Painter’s Palette Fun-Fold Card!

Happy Hawwwmp Day!  The week is half over.  Or…considering that I have Friday off – it’s Over-The-Hawwmp Day!  And I have the weekend off.  And Monday!  So…I am totally psyched to have 4 entire days – in a ROW! – to rest and sleep and make cards and maybe….join 3 million of my closest friends to eat at The Olde Pink House again….  and – did I mention sleeping? 😉

Today’s card is really fun.  And so ridiculously easy that if you haven’t ever made one – the second that you see the “trick” you’ll be all “why the heck didn’t I do that sooner??”  I used a couple of stamp sets on this one….Painter’s Palette (new on 1 June), Suite Sayings, and Watercolor Words.  Take a look-see:

So – before I show you the innards, let’s talk about the front, okay?  I started by SNAILing a piece of Very Vanilla card stock to a Flirty Flamingo mat. And then to a Basic Black mat.

Stampin’ Up! In Which I CASE Myself with Painters Palette and Large Numbers!

‘Sup, y’all?  Everyone getting ready to head back to work?  Me, too.  Bleh.  But, I put beef stew in my crock pot so I’ll have dinner all ready when I get back to the hotel tonight – Yum! 🙂

So, last week, I had my cards with me in my bag, and I showed them to my two friends at work.  They were both suitably impressed – doesn’t take much, they don’t realize that the tools I have at my disposal can make me look like a card-making-genius – and I kind of keep that to myself! 😉  And they both requested a card.  The first is the anniversary card I shared with you yesterday.  And the second – which you’re fixin’ to see, is a birthday card for the second guy’s daughter – who’ll be turning 7 shortly.

Now – this is the same guy that, while we were on a previous trip, got a whole bunch of SU! stuff from me for his wife and daughter.  Apparently, his daughter is very artsy and really loves making things.  He was immediately taken with the Painters Palette card I showed you on Friday.  And when he asked for the birthday card – requested one just like it!  Only with a birthday sentiment!

I asked what colors his daughter liked – he said pink.  So, I told him I’d change up the colors – including the card base.  And he said – no – he liked the black background and he knew his daughter would, too!

Since the customer is always right….and it’s a custom card….well, I gave him what he asked for!  This time I added a sentiment from Circle of Spring, some Hearts and a Bitty Butterfly.  She’s still a little girl, after all (seven is still a “little girl”, right??)!  Take a look-see:

See?  Looks eerily familiar, doesn’t it?  Good eye. 😉
