This fashionably dressed mother and daughter are from the Beautiful Moments Stamp Set.
Side by Side
I had fun dressing them, like paper dolls, using the “paper-piecing” technique with Tropical Oasis Designer Paper.
I first stamped the mother and daughter in Early Espresso Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I stamped the mother and daughter on the DSP, and fussy cut the dresses.
TIP: It feels weird cutting off their heads, arms and legs, but you have to do it!
After gluing the dresses in place, I colored their skin with the Ivory Stampin’ Blend, and their hair with several colors named in my Product List below.
I used the largest Stitched So Sweetly Die for cutting.
The background is a Soft Sea Foam card base, stamped with palm trees from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.
“Side by Side” is from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set, cut with another Stitched So Sweetly Die. This sentiment is perfect, don’t you think?
Today’s card was inspired by the Paper Player’s challenge, “Fashion Fun.”

Bzzzz, bzzzz, these bees are busy, making a card to be sent to someone endearingly named “Honey.”
The bees liked that I stamped them in Early Espresso Ink, rather than black, for a change. And, I appreciated how still they sat while I cut them with a Detailed Bee Die.
We made the see-through flower and leaves with Poppy Moments Dies, using Thick Whisper White Cardstock, and Pear Pizzazz Cardstock. I used the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder on the leaves to contrast with the smooth Whisper White background.
To make the honeycomb, I used a Detailed Bees metal die as a stencil, and applied Daffodil Delight Ink with a Sponge Dauber. The bees thought my method was crazy, but they liked the way it turned out.
Do you see how the honeycomb resembles the shape on the right side of this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge?
Finally, I needed the word “honey,” which I made using the letters from the Hand-Lettered Prose Die Set. To make the letters “soft” like the honeycomb, I applied Daffodil Delight Ink to Thick Whisper White Cardstock with a Sponge Dauber. That area beneath the “y” is what I used for the flower’s center.
This card makes the bees happy, and I hope it does the same for the “Honey” who receives it.

Today’s project is a winter time, masculine, birthday card.
It developed because of the parameters set by the Fusion challenge, where I used the theme, photo, and the sketch.
The first thing I did was use the Majestic Mountain Die to cut the tree from Copper Foil. After seeing the photo, how could I not use this tree?
Next, using the largest Layering Circles Die, I cut a circle from Basic Black Cardstock, keeping one edge straight, as it is in the sketch.
The background is the wonderful, burlap, Pressed Petals Designer Paper, which I glued to a Basic Black card base.
“Happy Birthday” is from the Clubhouse Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink on the burlap DSP, and cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die. I layered the sentiment on Basic Black Cardstock for thickness, and placed it on Mini-Dimensionals.
Adding five, black, sequin, stars was the final touch.
Thank you for visiting me today. I hope I’ve inspired you with this masculine card. Clicking on the pictures in my Product List will take you to my store for shopping. Thanks!
Raise your hand if you love birthday cake! And, decorated with gorgeous flowers, who could resist?
3D Birthday Cake
This cake happens to be in a FREE Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Happy Birthday To You. Plus, Stampin’ Up! has recently released “Product Coordination,” available to Demonstrators now, and customers February 4th, which includes Birthday Dies. You can check out the Birthday Dies in my Product List.
Before using my new Birthday Die to cut the cake, I stamped it in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and colored it with four Stampin’ Blends: Light and Dark Rich Razzleberry, Dark Poppy Parade, and Light Old Olive.
The cake stamp already has a stand, which I snipped away, so I could place the cake on its new, die-cut stand. I used Nobel Peacock Foil in Old Olive, so the stand would have nice shine. I glued the stand to the bottom of the cake, and rounded both with my fingers, making it 3D. Placing Foam Adhesive Strips in the center guaranteed it would hold its shape.
For the background, I used a piece of 6X6 Regals Designer Paper, which I cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Die. This stripe is from the previous catalog, but you can see the four new patterns in my Product List. I glued this to Old Olive Cardstock, on a Thick Whisper White card base.
“Happy Birthday” is from the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set, stamped in memento Black Ink, and cut with a Stitched so Sweetly Die.
I’m celebrating with Global Design Project’s theme.
Thank you, Paper Players, for the beautiful colors.

I know it’s early, but this Clubhouse Bundle makes such perfect Father’s Day cards, I had to do it!
My inspiration for today’s card was the sketch at TGIF.
This fantastic golf club from the Golf Club Die Set came to mind, and I cut five from Silver Foil. Then, I glued the golf clubs to Seaside Spray Cardstock that I cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die.
I used the second largest Rectangles Stitched Die to cut the background from Whisper White Cardstock. How do you like the embossing? It’s the new Absolutely Argyle Embossing Folder, which coordinates with the Clubhouse Bundle. I photographed my card on an argyle design from the Country Club Designer Paper. Isn’t it great how Stampin’ Up! coordinates everything?
“Happy Father’s Day” is from the Clubhouse Stamp Set, stamped in Garden Green ink, and cut with a Golf Clubs Die. The Garden Green Cardstock surrounding it was also cut with a Golf Club Die.
Before gluing the Argyle background to the Thick Whisper White card base, I wound Metallic Silver Thread around the middle, and taped it to the back. To complete the card, I positioned the golf club rectangles on Mini-Dimensionals, and glued the sentiment in the middle.
Thanks for checking out this masculine card. The Clubhouse Bundle is great for birthday cards also, and you can see details of my supplies by clicking on the pictures in my Product List.

I’ve already made several cards with the Special Someone Stamp Set, and I couldn’t wait to make another, using the Special Day Dies that just arrived in the mail.
Raccoon’s Special Day
The first thing I did was stamp the raccoon in Early Espresso Ink (the detailed stamp), followed by Sahara Sand (the solid stamp). This “two-step” stamping is easy to do with the Stamparatus positioning tool.
It was so much fun using the die to cut the raccoon from the Thick Whisper White Cardstock. Then, I stamped the sentiment in early Espresso Ink, and cut it with this really cute “comment” die. Since I have lots of talking animals, I was very excited to discover this die in the new set!
For the background, I combined Bird Ballad Designer Paper with Be Mine Stitched Dies.
Raccoon wanted to complete his sentiment on the inside with “Happy Valentine’s Day.” It’s from the Meant To Be Stamp Set, as well as the small Pool Party hearts, and the heart decorating the envelope flap.
I HAD to try out two more new dies. Isn’t that little bow fantastic? There are 17 dies in the Special Days Die Set, and if you click on the picture in my Product List, you can see all of them.
Raccoon and I thought this week’s CAS(E) this sketch would be great for his Valentine.
Thank you for stopping by. I know Raccoon is very proud of his Valentine, and was excited to share it with you!
