Monday Makes – Big on Birthdays Card

Hi there…it’s Monday again, another weekend has come and gone and we are almost at the end of April.  Where did the time go?  For today’s card I started to make a one layered card and then I lane swerved into another direction.  It’s funny the things that come into your head when you are creating.  The card to day is peachy, fun and full of techniques.  Even Quinn the crafting kitty held my hand for a little part of it.  Check it out.

Monday Makes – Cool Treats Card

Hi, it’s me again.  I hope you had a restful weekend.  Now to get into the groove of crafting for those summer birthdays don’t you think?  I used the Cool treats suite and I will be really honest here, I wasn’t sure about this purchase.  I was like…ice cream?  Really?  However, once I started playing with it I found that IT WAS SUPER FUN!  I am not joking, it’s crazy the things you can come up with.  I have to suggest that if you are on the fence with this one…take the plunge it’s a lot of fun.  Here’s the card.

Monday Makes- Another Dragonfly Card

Hello thank you for stopping by.  I really am trying to use other stamp sets but I keep coming back to this one.  I have to say it is quite versatile and a lot of fun to work with.  Have you gotten this one yet?  If this stamp set and die are being carried over into the new catalog, I can guarantee you it will not be bundled.  Stampin’ Up!® likes to give us deals when items first come out so if you want both of these best to get them now before the 10 % discount goes away.  The ink Mint Macaron is also going to be retired when the new catalog comes out June 1st so you may want to check your reinker status.  Once it’s gone it’s gone for good.  Enough doom and gloom, check out today’s card.

Monday Makes – A Balloon Adventure Card

Hi and welcome to the wonderful world of balloons and focal points.  At least that is what I am demonstrating today.  The card today is featuring the stamp set balloon adventures and I used the punch too!  By having the background in a neural colour the punched out balloons and the card stock really do their job by popping.  Check it out.

Monday Makes – Simple Dragonfly Card

Hello and thank you for stopping by.  I appreciate you coming here every week.  For today’s card I am doing another “SIP” card.  For those of you who don’t know, SIP means = stamps, ink and paper.  So another clean and simple card (CAS) I don’t know when we crafters got into abbreviating everything…it has made me ponder on what the English language will evolve into?  I probably shouldn’t write what ever pops into my head but sometimes, you know, it just has to come out and I feel safe with you.  You won’t tease me too much, right?  Ok, want to see the card?
