Moving Forward with a Blimpy Birthday

BDay Blimp1

Through the Making a Difference program, Stampin’ Up! partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). Each year, they design an exclusive stamp set to promote the partnership with RMHC, and donate a portion of the proceeds from the each sale of that set. To date, more than $95,000 has been donated from RMHC stamp set sales.

Mojo280SketchCard sketch brought to you at the Mojo Monday sketch challenge by designer Julee Tilman.  The card is for my newphew who at 21 isn’t a little boy anymore, but a young man who is pursuing his dream of someday becoming a major leage baseball player.  I know you can do it Nick!

An Antique Heartfelt Exchange

A shout out to all my PRETTY PALS at convention this year in Salt Lake City, Utah!  Wish I could be there, but instead I participated on a one-for-one card exchange with us PRETTY PALS who watch from behind the screen.  Whoever got it… I hope you enjoy it.

I used Real Red for the card base and embossed the Very Vanilla with the embossed Square Lattice folder.  The Antique Brads added the finishing touches.  I wanted the Heartfelt stamp to stand out so I stamped it in Real Red ink and used the Apothecary accents to cut it out.  Leave a comment and let me know if you you like it?

PPA 128 Color Challenge with a Kiss

Words of wisdom to the novice stamper… join in on the fun with a challenge… PAPER PALS ARTS is perfect!  It will not only motivate your creative side, it will make you think outside the box, and increase traffic to your blog (if you have one).  I’m a hobby stamper, but with my type A personality, I want to get better and better.  What better way than to participate in card color challenges.  This challenge was actually hard for me, but I got it done during my lunch break from work… =)

A co-worker mentioned to me, “I need to buy a card off of you for Valentine’s Day.”  I had to remind him that I don’t sell cards, I give them away.  So, Chuckie, if your reading this, leave a comment and it’s yours.

{LOVE}

[pinit]This card actually started out as a heart shaped card using my Big Shot Framelits Hearts Collection…. but I messed it up and cut too much off the top, so I got two heart scallops instead of one.  I’m not one to throw things out and start all over again, so I made use of  a mistake and instead made a prettier card than what I thought I was going to make.  After I put the sentiment and hearts together, it still looked plain, so I daubed a bit of Real Red Ink while holding a heart pattern.  The tiny flowers from the Itty Bitty Punch shapes and the square lattice embossing added the extra dimension I was looking for.

I daubed the second heart and aligned it on the inside for a personal Valentine note.  I almost don’t want to give it away, but if I don’t it will collect dust on my bookshelf instead of bringing a little bit of sunshine into somebody’s day.  Thank goodness for card challenges, without the Paper Pals Arts challenge, I would have never made a mistake that made the card even more beautiful… =)
