Springtime Foils Stylized Birthday Cards

It’s almost that time to send out birthday cards again and so today I’m going to share with you the #imbringingbirthdaysback card that I designed for April. I couldn’t resist using the Springtime Foil Specialty Designer Series Paper that is part of the Sale-a-bration choices since it is just so gorgeous!!!

Here is the card

And it was soooo easy to make! Each card looks a bit different since I used the flowers from the sheet of designer series paper that I cut out and simply colored them in with my Blends. Love the look!

This paper is also great for all kinds of techniques too! The options are endless since it has a glossy type finish and is a heavy card stock.

Check out the tutorial for this card below – and if you are wanting some of this paper for yourself, don’t delay since it is only available while Sale-a-bration last so there is only a few days left to year yours since Sale-a-bration ends March 31st at 11:50 pm (MT)

Seaside Shore

The other day I ran across some wonderful cards that I set aside to share with you and totally lost track of. Do you ever do that? I always think I’ll put it someplace safe so I’ll remember, but then I can’t find it! Sigh.

The good news is I found them now, so I’ll be sharing these and other wonderful cards that I’ve received in swaps over the next few weeks.

Today’s cards use the Seaside Shore stamp set found on page 93 of the Annual Catalog. It’s filled with wonderful bold images and a fun sentiment too. Perfect as we head into the warmer months.

This first card  was done in classic Black & White and includes lots of texture. I’ve included the supply list for you below.

And how about another monochromatic card done in Bermuda Bay – so bright and vibrant!

And here is another card Sandy gave me in a different swap using the set. It is a fancy fold – I really like the way she used the patterns to show off the stamped images.

Sandy made 3 cards with totally different looks using the same set – don’t you love that?

Anna made this wonderful birthday card using the Stylized Birthday (141828) as it’s focal point.

And my final card was given to me by Mary. I love the way she used Butterfly Basics (13881/138816/137154) image for the background netting. How cool is that?

Consignment Sale ends tomorrow

As I mentioned earlier in the week our Spring Consignment Sale ends tomorrow with 1/2 price day. There are still some wonderful deals – so why not stop on in between 9 and 2 tomorrow?

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Seaside Shore (141622/141625)

Stylized Birthday

Today’s card is a fun one – And it uses one of my favorite stamps Stylized Birthday. I worked on this particular card recently at the DIY Weekend I attended. (You can read more about that event here.)

I love the bold graphic images mixed with the wonderful font for the birthday greeting. How about you?

There is a lot going on right now with Stampin’ Up! and it has been a rather crazy week here for us with the awful weather that has rolled through the southeast – we’ve been lucky here in my area, just high winds today now. So as I’m getting ready for On Stage I thought I’d give you a few quick reminders now about what is coming up as we transition to our new 2017 Annual Catalog.

A Few Quick reminders for you:
  • April 8th – Demonstrators attending On Stage (My team and I are headed to Savannah, yippee!), will see the new 2017-18 catalog first!
  • April 10th – At 1 pm MST, demonstrators are allowed to share sneak peeks of the new catalog items they saw while at On Stage and the catalog will be online for demonstrators only.
  • April 10th – At 1 pm MST the retiring list of stamp sets and accessories from the 2016-17 Annual Catalog and previous publications will be posted.  I will post  that list on my blog and also email it directly to you as soon as I can.  Please remember that retiring items are always available while supplies last, so be ready and be quick!
  • April 10th – May 31st Retiring products available while supplies last.
  • May 31st – Last day to order from the 2016-17 Annual Catalog
  • June 1st – BEST! DAY! EVER! First day for customers to order from the all new and wonderful 2017-18 Annual Catalog
As I am sure you can guess, being the first to see this new catalog or any of our new products is a VERY EXCITING and a BIG PERK that my team and I enjoy very much – after all who wouldn’t want to be first?!  If you feel this is a good time to join Stampin’ Up! and my team, The Blue Mountain Stampers, you too can be first in line for all the newest cool stuff!
Join in the next few days and you’ll get to share the On Stage excitement with us on April 14th at my special team event!!!
