Ready For Retirement!

Here is a card that I made for one of my friend's who is retiring this year.  I used a bunch of retired items on this fun card.  Ticket corner punch, almost amethyst and retired design series paper, great trio for a retirement card, don't ya think?

Speed Racers!

I found these fun glittery race cars and just knew they would match up with this racing ds paper for a cool boys birthday card!  The colors are garden green and crushed curry and pacific point and real red from Stampin' Up!

Meet The Minions!

These stickers were just too cute to pass up using on these fun boys & girls birthday cards.  The boys colors are marina mist and pear pizzazz and the girls colors are marina mist and melon mambo.  I also used the brand new washi punch from Stampin' Up!

Helpful Handyman!

If you are like me, you got to be dad's helper for all of those around the house projects.  I held the level, handed him the screw driver, and learned the difference between metric and standard.  He also taught me  "righty tighty, lefty loosey" and "measure twice, cut once".  And of course, there was always the don;t tell mom about this project...lol!  On this Father's Day I hope you get to celebrate your dad too :)

Vintage Thanks...

For this card I used Blackberry Bliss, Mint Macaon, and Basic Black to compliment these vintage stickers and this pretty paper.  The organza roses match the blackberry bliss so beautifully.

Handy Dad!

Here is a flashy Father's Day card for that dad who loves to tinker with all of the tools!  I used basic grey and real red along with these shiny tool stickers.  The sentiment is punched out using the large oval punch and is from the May Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin' Up!

If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

If you are like me, you are SUPER EXCITED for the new Jurassic World movie to come out this week!!!!!!!!!  So, for today's card I used one of my favorite new Stampin' Up! stamp sets called "No Bones About It" with some of the new In Colors and the Triple Banner Punch.  The fun thing about this stamp set is you can stamp the bones and then layer the dinosaur over them.  With this card I used a very light blue vellum and it can be lifted up to see the T-Rex bones as in the picture below.  Check out all of the great new items I used for this card at the bottom of this post.
