Happy Birthday Darling Daughter!

I really thought I would have time to blog this week at my daughter's  but we have busy, busy, busy! I haven't even made it to the new fabric store yet (Sunday, I think)! Yesterday a couple of her stamping friends came over and we stamped our little hearts out! When they left DD and I just kept stamping:D Finally about 7:30 I started making mistakes so decided it was time to quit! Whew!!! 

One of the cards we made yesterday I need to wait to show you because it is a swap card that dear Mieka showed us. It was VERY time-consuming but what a great result!!! However, I have other cards to show and will be making more today! Whoo Hoo!

DD is off to a Birthday Party Coffee Morning with the neighbor ladies this morning. Can you believe that two of her neighbors have the same birthday as she does--TODAY! And another one is Monday! My granddaughter got sick yesterday so stayed home from school yesterday and today. Sooo, gramma is having some granddaughter time while daughter is celebrating her birthday:)

First card is the card I made my daughter for her birthday.

She loves the Dress-up Framelits so decided to use them to make her card! I added some Glimmer Paper and Bling to make up for the fact that I reminded her of her age on this card:0

For this card I used the following Stampin' Up! supplies:

  • Paper: Midnight Muse, Pink Pirouette and Basic Black card stock; Silver Glimmer Paper
  • Ink: White Stazon
  • Occasional Quotes stamp set (retired)
  • Other: Dress-up Framelits, Typeset Alphabet Bigz Die (thank you, Barb) and Basic Rhinestones
Next up are the cards I made and gave to her neighbor-friends...

I CASEd a card I saw on Pinterest done by Jackie Topa at Addicted to Stamping! The link will take you to her blog post with video! I LOVE the videos!!! Thanks, Jackie!

The one on the left is made using Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade (retired) and Whisper White card stock; the middle one is made using Bashful Blue (retired), Midnight Muse and Whisper White card stock; the one on the right is made using Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade (retired) and Whisper White card stock. I used the NEW Envelope Punch Board to make the closure! Stamp set is Flower Shop and I used the Pansy Punch to punch out the popped-up flowers.

Check out what the inside looks like with the Starbucks Card in the pocket! Jackie shows a male version on her video. I may make several of these for Christmas gift cards!

Have a great day!
