Simple Saturday

It doesn't get any easier than this card! I used designer paper from the Big Top Birthday pack that had the pennants on it and adhered it to Real Red card stock. I embossed white card stock with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and punched clouds out using the Cupcake Punch. I stamped Happy Birthday on one cloud that was not embossed. The clouds were added to the already decorative designer paper, and the card was complete!

Enjoy your Saturday...I hope you find some time to stamp.

We are off to a soccer tournament and praying that Lily does not get hit in the hand with the soccer ball as she got her cast off yesterday!

Wedding Cake

This card was created for the wedding theme challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments (HSSTC 117). I dry embossed vanilla card stock and used the 1 1/4" square punch to punch out the squared and adhered them to black cardstock. The scalloped circle was made using the Pennant Die. I stamped the cake from Love & Laughter on Vanilla card stock and punched out with a circle punch. Small punched flowers with pearls were added to the top of the cake and a black satin ribbon bow was adhered to the card. This sketch is an older one from MOJO Monday.

I received the new in-colors and some other new items I was able to pre-order. I'm hoping I get to play with them soon!

Razzleberry Fifth Avenue Floral

I must be on a Rich Razzleberry "kick" as the card I made yesterday also used this as the primary color! This card was made at my stamp club last week. It uses one of my favorite sets, Fifth Avenue Floral which is retiring:( The Movers and Shapers die was used to create the "cut-out". That die is retiring, too. This round of retirements, I had a lot of my favorites that are retiring. I guess I'll have to find some new faves.

Razzleberry Graduation

This card was designed for the challenge at Create with Connie & Mary (CCMC#200). The challenge was to create a celebration card. This card is for my niece's graduation. The layout for this card is from I Spy Sketches (ISSC#14). It is hard to tell from the picture, but the card base is Whisper White with a layer of Razzleberry that was embossed with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder adhered to it. The banners were made using the Petal Cone Die and the paper is Summer Smooches (you will be able to order this June 1!). I stamped the saying from the Word Play stamp set in Lucky Limeade. Framelits were used to cut it out, and I added a layer of Tempting Turquoise that is paper pierced behind it. A Tangerine Tango flower using the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch (soon to be retired) was adhered. 

Stampin' Up News:
Retiring Items can be ordered through May 31. The new catalog will be out June 1! 

Personal Note:
Hello Friends! I'm sorry I've been so sporadic with my postings lately. I hope to get on a more consistent basis again. Spring is busy for us with the three kids in soccer. We had a game last night, two games tonight, practice tomorrow night and a tournament this weekend. It will be fun! Lily will hopefully get her cast off Friday:)
