Fast & Fabulous Friday - Flirty Flowers

Over the weekend, my daughter came home for a visit to attend her best friend from high school Katie's wedding.  I cannot believe how quickly the girls have grown!  Katie is like a second daughter to me and it was fun attending her wedding.  Obviously the best part was getting Cassidy home for a few days which should explain why I missed Tippin' on Tuesday this week.  I had hoped to get something ready before she came but it just didn't happen.  I hope you all understand family first!

In any event, I am back with Fast & Fabulous Friday.  Today's card is a birthday card using the Flirty Flowers stamp set and embossing with the copper embossing powder.  I love that Stampin' Up! has added copper to the metallics that we have available.

Fast and Fabulous Friday Featuring the Pocketful of Sunshine Set for a Graduation Card

As a card maker, we are supposed to send out cards, aren't we?  Last year, I committed to mailing birthday cards to all of my friends and family whose birthday I knew and I made it!  This year?  Not a one, I don't think.  I have been terrible!

I had a couple of friends' daughters graduate from college in May and I needed to get cards out to each of them.  I didn't want a traditional graduation card and decided to do something with the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set.  Since I would be sending a check to each of them, I thought this was the perfect stamp set and coordinating dies to work with.  I was in such a hurry to get them out (since I am a few weeks late) that I forgot to take pictures of the cards before I mailed them so I had to screen capture one from my video to show you here.  A big thank you to you as filming this video got me creating the cards and getting them out - who knows how late they would have been otherwise!

Tippin' on Tuesday - A Magical Mermaid with a Marbled Background Technique

One of the first things that I was excited about when going through the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog was the inclusion of several new background stamps.  The one that really caught my eye was this Marbled stamp.  I immediately had several ideas to share with you using the stamp.  Today I am sharing the first one.

Fast & Fabulous on Friday - Another Edition of "What's in the Box?"

Are you as excited as I am about playing with all the new products from Stampin' Up!?  I am already having a great time creating projects with the new products and will be showing those to you over the next few weeks.  However, in the interim, check out today's video of more of the new products from the annual catalog.  This haul is much more than the last one I showed you and probably everything I will order until the holiday catalog comes out.  After watching the video, scroll down further for more inspiration with a recent card I made.  Happy Friday!

 This card was made using the Tuscan Vineyard stamp set and makes me think of the movie Under the Tuscan Sun.  I attempted to color the home on this set in the same coloring as the home in the movie.  The patterned paper at the bottom is a retired paper, however, the new Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Pack would work perfectly.
