Stampin’ Up! Fiesta Like There’s No Mañana Birthday!

Good morning!  You know what day it is, so I won’t even tell you.

Naaah – gotta.  It’s HAWMMP day! 😉  And – it’s tamale.  Well, actually it’s today.  But yesterday today was tamale.  Which is also today.  Yesterday.

Or something like that…

I have no cute puppy pics for you today – sorry!  So, let’s just get straight into the card, shall we?  As some of you suspected, I used the Birthday Fiesta stamp set and the coordinating Fiesta Time Framelits (get it as a bundle for 10% savings!) for this birthday card today.  When I added a little Swirly Scribbles and some Festive Birthday DSP….take a look-see:

I started by SNAILing the wood-look paper found in the Serene Scenery DSP Stack to a piece of Crushed Curry card stock.  Then I started playing with stamps and dies.  I made a “sun” from two Swirly Scribbles dies – one in Crushed Curry and one in Pumpkin Pie (I figure that might be how the sun looks in Arizona these days!! 🙁 )  I adhered them in the “sun spot” with a little Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin’ Up! Detailed Floral Phrases Thanks!

Hello Monday and welcome to another week of card-making fun!  Oh – and work.  Always work!  Is it really any wonder that’s a four-letter word?? 😉

I hope that you all got your hubbys/dads/grand-dads suitably feted yesterday – we went and had dinner with our friends and it was a lot of fun.  We got to meet their newest addition – Jax – who is a son of their lovely lab Luke.  I know he was named as a tribute to his grand-dad, Black Jack – so it’s nice that they’re on their third generation of a really nice line of dogs.  He’s a chip off the ole block, for sure – quiet and calm.  Smart as a whip! And, of course – he’s as cute as he can be!! 


Now that you’re filled with “awwwwww” – let’s talk cards!  Today’s card looks like I spent hours.  And hours!  But that’s the beauty of this fun new Thinlit – the Detailed Floral Thinlits.  Just three pieces in the set and bing-badda-boom!  Instant wow!  And so many things you can do.  For this one today, I combined two of the dies with a sentiment from the coordinating stamp set called Floral Phrases – and added in a pretty paper design from the Serene Scenery DSP stack.  Take a look-see:

I started by running a panel of Pool Party card stock thru my Big Shot with two of the large dies from the Detailed Floral Thinlits set in place on the panel.  Now.  I don’t have the Precision Plate and I’m not sure that I’ll get it.  I will, however, be getting the new Big Shot Platform (item #142802, on page 190 of the new catalog).  It’s been re-designed (beyond the removal of the old tab system) to help the Big Shot cut evenly across the entire rolling surface.
