Silly Birthday Card


Good Morning!

Today I am showing you a bright and silly birthday card that I created for my 3GirlJam post (go visit me over there and leave me some lovin'!)

Anyway, I wanted to create a cheerful and bright card and I loved this sentiment from the Stampin Up! set, Bombs Away.  I'm not sure how I feel about the new polymer stamps from SU, but I certainly did love this set.  This would be a good card for one of my friends at work that just HATES to tell anyone her age.  

The doily, punch used to make the delicate butterfly, and cute little pearls are also from SU.  I made the flower with 3GirlJam Ice Blue Crinkle Ribbon, from the Hot & Cold Bundle.  Of course, this time of year, I'm choosing the "Hot", because I'm ready for more summer fun!  The center of the flower is a button from Pinque Peacock from their new May release.  Isn't it just delicate and wonderful?

While I was in Spain, I found myself inspired by all the bright and cheerful colors that dotted the  landscape.  Visiting a heavily populated area, it was interesting to see that so many people had bright summer flowers in little pots hanging outside their apartment windows.  No matter where, we all want a little color to brighten our days.

Anyway, hope you like my card today and it inspires you to make something bright and beautiful.  Have a wonderful weekend.  I'm going to be torturing myself with a half marathon on Saturday morning!  But today, well, I'm going to

Enjoy Today!

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do w

Unity Blog Hop

My project today is a little mini album I put together to give to my daughter, who is exploring the possibility of traveling across America from Washington State to Delaware in July. I wanted to give her something to log and journal her adventures! I used stamps from Unity Stamp Company's June and November Kits of the Month for the cover. Inside the cover, I put a little note. She plans to hitch hike which is extremely bothersome to me. I want her to be safe! Maybe I'll suggest flying out and renting a car and doing a rode trip with her! That would curb my fears and will also be fun! The journal block comes from their September Kit . Unity Stamp Company is featuring a sale on their previous Kits! This is the time to get them if you don't have ENOUGH! See their sales here: Sales at Unity The inside pages were not made with a KOM stamp, but this stamp is cool all the same. I love this flower . It's big and has many uses! To start at the beginning of th
