One of my favourite occasions for cardmaking is when someone is celebrating a birthday.  Fun…bright….happy! Love it!  For this card I simply added strips of washi tape to a piece of cardstock and then ran it through my bighshot using a framelits from the Chalk talk framelits.   It is looking quite gloomy outside today so I might add a bit of ‘happy’ to my day by making some birthday cards in my studio.  Enjoy your weekend!

Products used for this card include:

Oh- I just found these shots of my kids from Book Week 2013.  The kids dressed up as the Fantastic Four.  I enjoy dress ups for the kids- but I love it even more when it is EASY to prepare their costumes.  The number 4s on the kids chests were cut out in a matter of minutes using felt and my Bigshot.  I just love it when I can use my Stampin’ Up! supplies for a number of different projects…not just cards, scrapbook pages and gift giving!

Christmas 2013

Here is my Christmas Card for 2013.  Yes- I know….I know…Christmas was months ago but I’ve just been sifting through photos on my computer and wanted to share this anyway!    Perhaps it may even give you some ideas for Christmas this year.  Why not Pin it on Pinterest for later in the year!?

I always feature a photo of my kids on my Christmas card and then I usually add stamped images and other embellishments.  It can be a time consuming process when I have loads of cards to create…thank goodness I love it so much.

This year  I used My Digital Studio to create my card.  I had to print off photos anyway so figured I may as well add some embellishments digitally seeing as I have My Digitial Studio at my fingertips.  I had the main area printed and then adhered the images to my Stampin’ Up! cardstock.  Voila!

Here’s a card I made for my gorgeous husband recently.


The greeting is from “Perfect Pennants” which you can view in my online store by clicking on the image

The paper in the background is from the “Sweet Sorbet” Paper pack and I got this absolutely free as it is a sale-a-bration item.   You can choose exclusive products like this for FREE with every $90 purchase.

One of my favourite tools I used on this card was the Scalloped Tag Topper punch from the Occasions Catalogue.  You can purchase this punch in my online store.    The idea is to make fun tags with these but I chose to punch both the top and bottom for my card.  My kids have even used my punch to make bookmarks for themselves.

Another fun tool I used on the card was the White Stampin’ chalk Marker for a fun chalkboard effect.  These are available for only $5.95
