Cake Soiree Birthday Card

Today I’d like to bring to a super sweet birthday card with one of my favorite In-Colors at the moment: Berry Burst.  And it just so happens to be MY BIRTHDAY today!  Woohoo!

Doesn’t this color look fantastic with that yummy cake?  And, it uses hints of the Sweet Soiree Embellishment kit to add just the right amount of fun!

This card features a bunch of embellishments: mini sequin trim, tassels, ribbon, pieces from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment kit…Do you like to feature embellishments on your cards?  What’s your favorite way to make your card stand out?

Be You-nicorn Card

I told that I’ve been having fun with this Magical Mates bundle right?  Seriously, it’s been so fun to play around with.  This is another one of my “bin cards.”  I found many of these pieces in my extras bin and created a fun unicorn card with it!  Hope you like this pretty unicorn card!

Of course, I couldn’t resist using the Blends to color in and shadow my little unicorn friend.  Isn’t she pretty?  I think she kind of looks like she’s showing off with her eye closed and head tilted back like that.  What do you say?  haha

A reminder also that it’s one of the last days to take advantage of Sale-a-bration and also to get my free gift to you with purchase! Shop here: Megan’s Online Shop

Beautiful Peacock Meets Celebrate You Thinlets

This beautiful creation started with some scraps from my bin!  I keep a small plastic container beside my BigShot and if I don’t have a lot to run through I’ll usually run an extra diecut or two through and then throw them in the container afterwards to hopefully inspire a complete creation sometime.  And, most of these items were in that plastic container!  Woohoo for using up odds and ends!

This card is a combo of the saying and background bits from the Beautiful Peacock Stamp Set and the Celebrate You thinlets.  Both of these items are still available as freebies from SAB with a $50 or $100 purchase!

I like to think of this card of a reminder of how God creates beautiful things out of what we sometimes see as a mess.  Our God is a big God!  Amen?

BRUSHO meets Rose Wonder

IMG_8706

I just love this pairing of our new Brusho with the Rose Wonder die cut image!  What do you think?  It’s a little artsy, and not at all hard to do with the new Brusho powders.

Watch all about Brusho here: Stampin’ Up Brusho Video

Super, super easy to accomplish, but with WOW results!  Who doesn’t love that?

To use the Brusho, simply tap some powder in the general areas that you want the rose color, then the leaf color.  Spritz with the Stampin’ Spritzer and allow to air dry.  If you would like to use the Heat Tool to speed up the drying process, feel free!  Then I would use the Fine Tip Glue pen to adhere the rose die cut image onto your card.  Finally, do your stamping LAST so the spritzing doesn’t make it run.

Enjoy!

Don’t forget my March special….

Petal Palette From the Heart Card

Today I’m bringing you a card from my most popular, by far, bundle of the Occasions catalog!  The Petal Palette Bundle!  It has such sweet and soft images that are fun to stamp as solid or to color in.  IMG_8720

I just love stamping sayings on cards that are good for many occasions.  This would make a perfect card for many such occasions.  Who would you send this card to?

Thanks for stopping by!

Let the Good Times Roll – Stampin’ Up

IMG_8697

I’ve got a doozy of a card for you today!  This one features the Let the Good Times Roll bundle and lots of bright colors!  Wouldn’t this just be the highlight card for a little person’s birthday!?!?! 😉  Or at least I’d like to think so!  hahaIMG_8698

The inside pop-out mechanism can be a little tricky to put together, but if you watch the YouTube video made by Stampin’ Up, you’ll be in a lot better shape: Let the Good Times Roll Video  Ultimately, I had a super fun time making this card and it will be feature at my upcoming Fancy Frills class on Friday!  I hope the ladies love making this card!

Don’t forget all March orders are eligible not only for Sale-a-bration goodies, but also for a FREE gift from me if using the hostess code!  The fun adhesive backed sequins were used to decorate the front of my card!

Lots of Lavender Sympathy Card – Stampin’ Up

I really don’t like to think about needed Sympathy cards, but they are nice to have on hand when you need them, am I right?  It’s tough to create them when the occasion arises, but if you always keep them on hand, then you’re prepared.  Today, I have for you a super simple, easy to replicate Sympathy card.

IMG_8729IMG_8730

This card uses the Sale-a-bration Freebie stamp set Lots of Lavender as its feature stamp set.  The flowers do not need colored in as it seems, but are stamped!  The soft colors really speak comfort to me and that’s what I’m hoping would be passed on to the receiver as well.

The little notches in the edges of the card are done with a 1/2″ circle punch and allow the linen thread to stay tucked in nicely on the side of the card.  No getting stuck on the envelope!

Hope you like today’s card!

Joyfully Yours,

Megan
