A Very Special Birthday Message

Blend Well

I’m bringing Crazy, Mixed Up Love back! I’m so glad this stamp set is still available in digital format. I’m going to tell you why in a moment, but first I will tell you that we have the best digital software for recreating a stamp from the past.

It’s called My Digital Studio and you can get a FREE trial. My favorite thing about Stampin’ Up! is that even after a stamp set retires it’s often still available in digital format. That’s how I was able to make this sweet card. Now on to my story.

TRUE STORY: You Can’t Make This Up

I received an email from Joe (aka Yossi), a very thoughtful gentlemen (from New York) who is surprising his girlfriend (Estee) with a special gift. Can you guess what it is? Maybe Joe will stop by and tell us what he got her.

To personalized his card, I placed the letters of both their names inside the blender because they blend well together. Isn’t that cute! It simply warmed my heart that he took the time to find her the perfect card.  You can see the original card here.

MAGGIE’S THOUGHTS: Simple Suggestions

  • When snipping out images use Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop them off the card to give it a little 3-D action.
  • If your image has a large portion that is a dark color, stamp it in different color and snip it to make it to come to life.


A shoutout to Estee on her birthday, enjoy your special day and know that your one of a kind card was made especially for you. You are definitely special. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
