Yesterday I shared the card that I created April’s birthdays that I’m sending out and so today I thought I’d share the wonderful cards that I received for my birthday last month. It was such a wonderful surprise each time I found one of these special little envelopes in my mail box. Such happy mail from my friends and fellow stampers! And a wonderfully uplifting experience as we were transitioning through March to the shelter in place we have now.

So on to the fun part, sharing with you! I’ll start with the fancy folds

This first card uses the It Starts with Art stamp set (149303) and it’s coordinating dies. Can you see the sheen on the ribbon? Both the Clear Wink of Stella and our Fine Tip Glue Pen has been used to add some shimmer and shine!

This next card uses the Daisy Lane stamp set (149325) and it’s coordinating Daisy Punches.

The Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper (149478) adds a bit of interest and the Layered Leaves 3D Embossing Folder (152321) adds some texture to this lovely little card.

And this next card is soft and lovely

Done in Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz it uses our Tin Tile 3D embossing Folder (151801) and the Healing Hugs stamp set (148223).

And finally this fun easel card using the scallop circle as it’s base – fun right?

Decorated with the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper (151324) and stamped with the Painted Poppies stamp set (151599) and coordinating Painted Labels Dies (151605). These dies are currently on back order but will be back in stock soon for ordering!

And how about a couple more cards using these products?

This last card cleverly uses the See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper (149443) from the Annual Catalog.

And here is another card this time using the Night of Navy patterns from the paper along with this lovely image from the Beautiful Moments stamp set (151677). I just love how versatile this Designer Series Paper pack is!

Here is a card using one of my favorite stamps, Waterfront (146386). A great set for creating scenes like this one.

How about this lovely card using the Lovely Lilypad products that were available during Sale-a-bration last month.

and another using the Happy Birthday to You stamp set that was added to the Paper Pumpkin Kit. I just love how our products work together!

And finally some kit cards – using past Paper Pumpkin Kits among others. This shows you just how great our Paper Pumpkin kits have been and the variety you can expect when you subscribe.

I love how kits make crafting so easy to do!

Whew! That’s all I’m able to share for today, (my internet is giving me fits right now) – But stop by my Facebook page where I’ll be sharing all the cards I received this year.

Team Time Sharing

Tomorrow is my team craft time, I really enjoy this afternoon of crafting together. It is a purely social event when we gather, bring project we are working on and enjoy each others company. Thinking about it earlier today made me realized I hadn’t shared some of the wonderful projects my team shared with me earlier this month.

So here we go – I love the variety of the projects they make. Such talented stampers they always inspire me with their projects.

This first card is a Pop Up Card that uses the Sailing Home Bundle (151066) and other items you can find in the Suite (152175).

Here is the inside – fun right? And did you know that the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper (149481) is part of our Buy 3 Get 1 Free September Designer Series Paper promotion?

And here is a cute movement card using the Over the Moon stamp set (149331)

I just adore these little cows.

And here is a great use of those scraps you have laying around – a strip card using the sentiment from Free as a Bird (149468)

And how about this over sized card using the Daisy Delight Stamp set (143669) and coordinating punches (143713 and 149517) done in Gorgeous Grape?

And finally a fun fold card made with the lovely See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper (149443) another of our wonderful Papers that is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free Designer Series Paper Promotion this month and the Butterfly Gala stamp set (148580).

Well that is it for today – tomorrow I’ll share some of the swaps I received recently.
