Happy Birthday!

I wanted to share with you a card I made for my friends birthday!

This is a three tier card and was very easy to make once I got all the measurements right!

It was fun and very challenging to find different things to put on each tier as

each tier is smaller than the one before it! This card ends up being 4 1/4 x 4 but

with a little adjustment to the measurements, it could be about any size you want it to be. I can't wait to play with it and make some more cards in different sizes.
So be watching for them in the future. Maybe, if I get the chance, I can do a tutorial on it!

Let me know if you would be interested in that!
Stamp sets I used for this card are: Stampin' Up! Crazy for cupcakes (111618)
I also used a sale a bration set
called Happy Moments.
If you would like to earn this set or any
of the other Sale a bration sets, ask me how!
Everyone loves to get something free and
Stampin' Up! makes it easy.
So don't wait, sale a bration doesn't last for ever!

I hope you enjoy today's post!

Until next time....

Happy Valentines Day!

Hello, my name is Shelly and I am a paper and ribbon Hoarder!

Stampin' Up! has such wonderful papers and ribbons... I buy and buy and buy

but I never use them because if I use them, then they are gone! So then what ends

up happening is that I have stacks of retired Stampin' Up! Designer series papers.

Last night, I sat down to make my husband a Valentines card and I MADE myself

use some of the retired papers I have. I thought I would share the card with you. Although

the designer series paper is retired, the ribbon and stamp set that I used is not.

The name of the stamp set I used is "Love you Much" (113756) The ribbon is Chocolate chip double stitched grosgrain (111849). I also used the scallop border punch (112091).

I really enjoyed putting the different pattern of paper together. It felt good to create again.

Seems like the last few months I have found myself in a dry spell. Maybe the ideas will start

flowing freely again and I can start posting here more regularly!

If there is something that you would like to see me post her or do a video on, please leave a comment and let me know! Until the next time....

Snowy Wonderland!

Today's post will not be stamp related but I wanted to take this opportunity to share

with you the beauty of Snow in the South! That's right, here in South Carolina we occasionally

get some of that beautiful white stuff called SNOW!

I had to take pictures because chances are, tomorrow it very well could be totally gone! So enjoy the pictures and I will be back soon with some more stamping projects and videos!

New Video

Good Morning stamping friends!
I can't wait to show you the new unmounted stamps that Stampin' Up! is now carrying.
I have never been a fan of unmounted stamps but I am very excited about our new line of stamps. The cases they come in are so streamlined. This is going to make storing them so much easier! They are going to take up much less space... ooooooh, that means we can buy MORE stamps! lol
This is just a short video showing you how to adhere the stickers to the backs of t he unmounted stamps. I hope you enjoy it and be be watching for another video real soon!
Until then,
Go get your fingers inky!

Haitian Relief

In addition to donating a portion of sales, Stampin Up bought supplies for 5,000 hygiene kits to be sent. Employees gathered in the Distribution Center at Stampin' Up!, giving their own time to pack the hygiene kits to be sent to Haiti. What was scheduled to take several days was done in one day, thanks to the compassion and commitment from Stampin' Up! Employees.

Stampin' UP! in my opinion is a wonderful company to work with. I am proud to say that I am a demonstrator for Stampin' Up!

If you would like to help out with the relief efforts and also enjoy a new stamp set, click here to order this wonderful set!
