International Bazaar Loves Pool Party

Featuring: Guest Stamper, Debra

Pool Party Anniversary5


International Bazaar Designer Series Paper is a classy backdrop for this lovely Anniversary card.  The layout is very functional for an at-work-pass-around card as the multiple panels are minimally jazzed and ready for signatures.  What a thoughtful way to celebrate an employee’s one-year anniversary with the organization.  I love unexpected recognition, I’m sure the recipient will be delighted!  You know you have a great hobby when the results can be shared to spread smiles!

Thanks for sharing, Debra!

One Happy Couple: Baja Breeze & Rich Razzleberry / TECHNIQUE: Quilting

Rich Razzleberry Anniversary2


This is one happy couple! Baja Breeze and Rich Razzleberry are a truly fabulous pairing.

I used the Quilting Technique to combine two different patterns from the Floral District Designer Series Paper to create my own design.  Then I die cut my “quilt” with the Label Collection Framelits along a bias to create diamonds of color.  I added a layer of Baja Breeze to bring out the flowers of the DSP.  In the background I used the Flowering Flourishes Wood stamp set to create monochromatic texture.

To create a “quilt” illusion you will need a square punch and coordinating cardstock.  I used 2 different patterns in the above project, but I have seen as many as 3 or 4 different patterns used at a time.

STEP 1: Cut out squares from each pattern.  Quantity depends on size of quilt.

STEP 2: Add Snail Adhesive to your base cardstock.  LOTS of snail!! This is a great way to use up any scraps because the base color will not be visible.

STEP 3: Start in one corner and adhere the squares in an alternating pattern to fill the base.  Make sure to align the squares with no space in between them.

STEP 4:  Trim your “quilt” with framelits or your  Stampin’ Trimmer to create a textured element for your next project.


Happy Engagement, Tami & Armando!



With this card, I burned some midnight oil to get my card out asap following the big announcement!  I am so excited for my dear friend, Tami and her wonderful fiance Armando!  This couple is very special to my husband and I was so excited to make this card for them to celebrate their engagement.

Best Wishes!

An Elegant Twist on the Patio Party Suite

Night of Navy - Anniversary

The *NEW*  Patio Party Suite has the most versatile designs in the Stampin” Up! Designer Series Paper.  In this card, I used the Chinese lantern design as a back drop, framed with whisper white card stock that is embossed with Perfect Polka Dots on the left side.  The blue heart polka dot designer paper, also found in the Patio Party Suite,  created a subtle surround for the greeting.  This elegant greeting stamp is found in the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set.  The embellishments include Marina Mist 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon and Dazzling Details gel on the polka dot embossing.
