In addition to all these, Stampin' Up! also offers other specialty cardstock. So this card features Shimmery White card stock, and this is the first time I've used it. One of my friends used some on her card, and it looked absolutley fabulous. It's very glossy on one side, almost like photo paper, and is flat (as in not shiny) on the other. (See how shiny it is in the picture.)
So here's the card without the glare. Yes, it's for another family birthday: for a special person, my twin sister. She's classy, so I decided to use the simple elegance of the flowers from Fifth Avenue Floral and couple it with the Shimmery White card stock. The outside looks pretty simple, but the inside has a surprise!
Stamp Sets: Fifth Avenue Floral, Teeny Tiny Greetings
Materials: Brocade Blue card stock and coordinating ribbon, Whisper White card stock, Crystal Effects (for the center of the flower), and the Word Window punch (for the greeting and for the pop-up effect)

I added Frost Shimmer Paint to the butterfly with a sponge, to make it stand out from the rest of the card stock. The body of the butterfly (and the greeting) were punched from the word window punch. The greeting comes from a wonderfully versatile set called Teeny Tiny Wishes; it has something for just about every occasion. The flowers are from the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set.
It's easy to personalize cards with the Build-a-brads. Oh, and you can also use Stampin' Up! markers to color ribbon so that it matches the card stock. Enjoy!

I chose the one in So Saffron to match my kitchen and color preferences. You may choose from over half a dozen colors, and this piece of vinyl art costs less than $10.
I cut the emblem in half and then applied each half to either hemisphere of the pitcher.
I also wanted to try another quick project, so I decorated a Craft Keeper.
It was pretty easy, and I think it came out well.

Yesterday I wanted to make something, and I pulled out these decorative words that I purchased awhile back for a framing project that I haven't started yet. Anyway, I looked at them, and then opened up my cupboards and found my simple little milk bottle vase, just like the ones my dear friend Nancy always uses for wildflowers. I decided that's what I'd decorate, and then just had to choose which word to use (faith, hope, love, or life).
Yesterday something reminded that God is protecting us and caring for us, whether we are walking through easy pastures or dark valleys. So, I chose "faith." Whatever you are facing right now, keep holding on to Him, He always keeps His promises.
This Decor Elements set comes with the words: faith, hope, love, life.
It is available in these colors and sizes: Black, Chocolate, and Kraft
small ($4.95) and medium ($5.95).
Click here for more details.
I used the small Chocolate set for this project, as well as Whipser White 5/8 Satin Ribbon.
It's a high quality, double-sided satin ribbon that you may purchase for $8.95 for 15 yards.

Unwrap it from the package, and it opens into a bookmark to remember the special little someone.
The Certainley Celery pillow box was made using the Big Shot pillow box die; it's fabulously easy to use! Then I stamped the baby's initials on the card stock with the Define Your Life Alphabet set. The circle and star were cut from SU! punches.
Oh, and inside there was enough room for 2 balls of Lindt chocolate. The brown paper package (not tied up with string, ...) was whipped up from the extra wrapping that SU! uses when they ship packages. It's totally recycled and re-used, and more importantly, large enough to hold 2 Ghiradelli chocolates.
If you want to make pillow box favors for an upcoming party, shower, or wedding, please contact me soon!

I'm finally blogging again. I was pursuing a university course that took much of my free time. And then I felt overwhelmed by all the things I hadn't blogged because I wanted to show them properly. [The previous post was just a half-hearted attempt at a post.] So, that kept me from sharing what I've done. So, I'm going to just share what I want instead of feeling that I have to "catch up" or show things in "chronological" order. Oh my!
Anyway, I'm finally breaking ground, and this post is my attempt to get back into the habit of blogging again. I want to be sharing with you again, even if my posts don't live up to my idea of perfect. So, no photos today, just text, here I am again.
I have several evenings available to come over and show you and your friends techniques that you can use on dad, grad, and birthday cards. Just contact me so we can set up a date!

Here are some mini cards I worked on in yesterday's afternoon light!
Check out the Stampin' Up! home page for the most recent information about Sale-A-Bration and specials. I've been busy with a class and life, and kind dropped off the blogging world for a while.
