Special Reason and Stylish Stems

Today’s post uses one of the bundles from the Occasions Catalog which will be retiring on May 31st – so there is still time to get it!

It was a really overcast and dull day and I had it was one of my rare days off from the tax office.  I needed some brightness and sparkle in my day so headed straight for the glimmer paper – you might need some sunglasses for these ones as they have a lot of sparkliness! (its a word…. honest!)

Card Challenge and new Sale-a-bration goodies!!

Sunburst Sayings and Timeless Textures + video~ Stampin’ Up!

Every so often my Stampin’ Up! grandma organizes an event for her team to join in, back in January she organized a card swap using products from the Occasions catalog.

Each person had to design and make a card for each person ~ there were 15 this time, we send them to her she sorts them and sends them back and we all get 15 different cards in return.  This is one of the lovely things about being part of the SU family!.

Sky is the Limit ~ from Stampin’ Up!

This is one of the exclusive Sale-a-bration stamp sets, which is available until February 15th, more details on how you can get your hands on this one is at the bottom of the post!

Sunburst Sayings ‘ Thank you’ ~ Stampin’ Up!

I am not a great fan of January – after the glitter and shine of the holiday season with Thanksgiving and Christmas the house always looks so quiet and plain.  So today’s card uses lovely oranges and yellows and a pop of glimmer paper.

Bermuda Bay Birthday ~ from Stampin’ Up!

Black, White and Bermuda Bay – a lovely combination for this birthday card.  Black is not a color I naturally reach for but it does give a certain elegance to most things ~ I think this would have been a very elegant card…….. until I added the stamped balloons to make it a little more whimsical!

Party Wishes ~ from Stampin’ Up!

Don’t you just love cup cakes?  I thought it was the best thing ever when it became popular to have cup cakes instead of a big birthday cake and then I went to a wedding where there was cup cakes for the guests and a small cake for the bride and groom to do the ceremonial cut.

So when Stampin’ Up! came out with the Party Wishes stamp set with a itty bitty cup cake and then a punch to cut out that itty bitty cup cake I was doubly thrilled!
