Cheerful Basket Happiness Card

With summer almost over, my thoughts are turning to Fall.  I am really looking forward to the cooler weather.  It’s been quite a hot summer.
This week I have chosen the Cheerful Basket bundle item# 158680, that you can find in our Annual catalog.  I love the wicker basket and all the stamps and sayings.  
The first card is a basket of blueberries.  I did not color them apples this time. The cat is adorable and I am really a dog person. I chose the happiness saying, that can be for any occasion.  
Remember I told you I used the Sale-a-Bration Soft Succulent and Pool Party card packs. I am trying to create ahead, because I will be packing up soon for our move.  Well, the card packs were so popular, that they depleted their stock quickly.  Remember, Sale-a-Bration is only for two months, July-Aug. So when their supply runs out, Stampin’ Up! doesn’t have time to reorder and get it shipped. If you have other favorites you want to earn for FREE, don’t wait.  
I actually have an extra pack, so I will enter your name to win a pack of these great cards and envelopes with every $50- order or more during August.  You will also earn a FREE Sale-a- Bration product with every $50- order.  Order $100- and your name will go in twice and you will earn 2 $50 products or 1 $100-  product. Remember to use my Host Code BSRCG739 if your order is under $150-.  If it is over, don’t enter the code and I will still enter your name.

Sweet Candy Canes Treat Pocket

The new Mini Pocket Envelope makes gifting so easy.  The dies cut a small pocket die you can add a treat, candy canes or a gift card. We all like gifting at the Holidays.  This Mini Pocket die set will make your gift look great!
I also like the saying die that you can add ribbon through or turn it vertically and you can add a candy cane through the holes.
The item number is #159167 in our annual catalog.
I love my newsletter subscribers!

Sweet Candy Cane Wonderful Time of the Year Card

This will be our last week for Christmas in July.  
I have chosen the Sweet Candy Cane bundle and have designed a card and treat pocket for you.  
The Bundle is item #161052.  Don’t forget to select your FREE Sale-a-Bration product when you place an order for this bundle. 

I love the sparkle on this card.  I used the new red and white glimmer paper that is in our Holiday Mini catalog.  I love sparkle at the Hoidays.  There is a great die in the bundle that cuts the diagonal stripes you see in white.  It allows you to stamp the sentiment right on the diagonal piece.  Love that.
I used the white glimmer circle to separate all the red in the card and the candy canes.  
I also colored one of the opel gems to make the gems more red and white like the card.

He’s The Man Gift Card Holder

I have a really simple gift card holder using two products.  I am using the really cool He’s The Man Designer paper and our new Mini Pocket Envbelope Dies.  What could be easier?
With Father’s Day fast approaching, it seems perfect to give the men in your life a gift card to their favorite store.  I put an Amazon card in mine.

This easy die set has everything you need to make a fast and easy gift card holder.  Today, I made one for the man in my life, using the He’s The Man Designer paper.  
I didn’t even use a stamp.  The designer paper comes with two pages of cut outs that work for many occasions.  I literally made this in 5 minute.  
The Mini Pocket Envelope Dies would work great inside a card too.  You can just glue it to the inside of a card and you have both a gift and a card all in one.  How great is that?
You can order it on my webpage at  Please remember to use my Host Code.

Cute Graduation Card

I know many of you have graduations happening in your family, so I decided to make a cute graduation card using our Sweet Songbird Bundle.  This set has a matching punch to punch out different parts of the bird.  Today, I only punched out the wing and stamped the rest.  You could always stamp the wing and cut it out.  If you like to punch better than fussy cutting, you can save 10% by bundling the stamps and punch together and buying them as a set. This adorable bird is so cute and makes a great graduation card too. Read more for Instructions & Supply List.

Speedy Recovery

I have a new stamp set to share with you today. It’s called Speedy Recovery.  We all need a good stamp set to send recovery wishes.   It’s on page 76 in our new annual catalog.  I have had some friends and family that have needed surgery recently and I have heard of friends getting the flu and colds lately.  So, this set came in handy to send them get well cards.  The first stamp I liked was the bunch of cut flowers.  I stamped the flowers first in Memento ink and colored with my Blend markers.  I cut the circle using the new Stylish Shapes dies on page 175 Item #159183.  I love the stitching on the dies.  You get 6 circle dies and 5 square dies along with nice label dies.  These stand-alone dies can go with so many of your stamps.  I love it! See Instructions and Supply list, Click Here!
You can also use this stamp for anniversary or birthday cards.

I also cased this cute tissue box card and changed a few things to make it my own.  Either of these cards should make your sick or recovering friends feel better. I used more of the Tea Boutique Designer Paper. See Instructions and Supply List, Click Here!
