Good morning everyone! How are we all doing this fine Monday morning? I’m doing well, I had a nice weekend with some fun time on Saturday and some creative time on Sunday. It was a very nicely balanced weekend, something that I am not usually able to achieve. So I don’t know if you noticed but I got a little bored with the blog look. I opened up My Digital Studio and played around and this is what I came up with. What do you think? I know Affection Collection is “Vintage” but it’s still one of my favorite sets. Leave me a comment to share your thoughts on the new look.
Before I get to today’s card I have two exciting things to share with you!
First up is the Dude! You’re Welcome Kit! A kit designed by men for men because “Real Men Build Cards” Check out the fun video…
I say it’s about time! It’s a fun way to give a guy a creative outlet. And gentlemen, the more you order the better! 🙂
Stampin’ Up! has also announced a new subscription service called My Paper Pumpkin.
Each month you will get a kit that will enable you to create some cards or another surprise project. The cost… only $19.95 per month and that includes shipping! How cool is that?!?! Everyone needs to experience a little creativity and what better way than to get a box of supplies with everything (except adhesive) that you need to make a project! You can sign up by clicking here. As a special bonus you will receive a Clear Block D in your first kit. There is also an option for a trial kit if you just want to take it for a test drive coming in March. What a great way to spend about 30 minutes, being creative and making something that you can give to others or keep for yourself. When you go to the site and decided to sign up (you know you want to!) choose me as you Demonstrator, Justin Krieger – Bethpage, NY! I’ll answer any questions that you have and also will have samples of the kits each month right here for you! Think you are too busy for a little creative therapy each month… think again!
Now off we go with today’s card. I saw the All Dressed Up Framelits, Pop’ n Cuts and Stamp Set in the Spring Catalog and thought now why would I order that?! That’s way too girly for me! Then I thought, well I have a lot of female friends that would probably appreciate a card made with these fashionable items, so I caved! I made this card for a friend of mine at work for her birthday. The base of the card is Primrose Petals Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Very Vanilla with the Elegant Bouquet Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The pretty dress and dressmakers stand are cut out with the Dress Up Framelits Dies, the stand in Crumb Cake and the dress from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack. A thin piece of Silver Glimmer Paper is used for the belt. The flower is Primrose Petals punched out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and a Basic Jewels Rhinestone is adhered in the center. For the greeting I stamped the happy birthday from the Made for You Stamp Set in Gumball Green. The Print Poetry Designer Series Paper makes a great print for the dress and the card was super simple to make and my friend really liked it and I hope that you enjoyed it too! Thank you so much for spending some time with me today, I always appreciate your visit! Have a great day!
