First I would like to share with you a picture of Blake. When we got home yesterday it was raining (again) and Blake used my new Stampin' Up! umbrella, which matches the Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp Set.
Now that you've all seen my awesome umbrella I want to show you a 3D item you can make on your own using the Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp Set (113734 $24.95). I had a couple minutes last night to play and I made a new coaster box to hold scissors and adhesive for my clubs and make and take classes.
Speaking of card clubs. . . have you saved your spot yet??? I still have room in my 3rd Tuesday of the month and 3rd Wednesday of the month clubs. Let me know if you'd like more information and/or to join!
OK . . back to my coaster box. At first I was going to use the Urban Oasis Designer Paper, and then I decided just to stamp onto Whisper White card stock using Baja Breeze, Pacific Point and Kiwi Kiss classic ink pads. I use Baja Breeze Ribbon to tie the 5 coasters together.
If you haven't seen how to make a coaster box before make sure to watch the video below!
These boxes are so easy to make and make wonderful gifts. You could fill a cello bag with candy and give one to your mother for mother's day! And speaking of mother's day don't forget to pick up a Stampin' Up! gift certificate for your mother or let you special someone(s) know that they can get you a Stampin' Up! gift certificate from me! If you have any questions, please ask!
Thanks for stopping by today!!!

Last weekend I had the chance to participate in a card swap. I love swapping ideas with other demonstrators, because they usually use stamp sets I don't have yet. Plus they give me inspiration!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Are you wondering how I got the stem brown? Well that was very easy. I inked the image with Kiwi Kiss ink and then I used a Blender Pen to remove the ink from the stem. Finally I used my Chocolate Chip maker and colored the stem!

For Blake's birthday party I make a Happy Birthday Blake banner using my Big Shot and Pennant Die. Also used was the Scallop Circle Bigz Die and Serif Essentials Bigz Die. I know the Serif Essentials are a big investment, but they are so worth it.
I wanted to use some bright colors, so I dug into my card stock supply and got out some in colors: Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss and Tangerine Tango. Other supplies used to create this banner are: Jumbo Eyelets, Crop-a-Dile, Ribbon and Tombo Multi Liquid Glue.
I'm sure it's hard to see the detail in the pictures, so here is a close up of the B in Birthday. You can see I used 2 Jumbo Eyelets (Pewter) on each pennant.
The Blake banner I did a little different, because I am going to hang it in Blake's room after the party. I only used the colors: Pacific Point and Kiwi Kiss.
Here is a close-up of the B in Blake. You can see I used 3 jumbo eyelets on each pennant. Also used on the Blake banner was the Scallop Circle #2 Bigz die. I used it for the scallop circle on the end of the pennant.
AND . . . I wanted to make sure to send everyone home with a little something so I got out my new die the Pillow Box Bigz Die, which you will be seeing LOTS of it. This was the 1st project I had a chance to do with it, and I LOVE IT!!! Inside each one was a little bit of Blake's Easter Candy. . . it was either give it to my family or send it with my husband to his work. . if it stays at my house it gets eaten. . and we can't have that.
Thanks for stopping by today, and if you have any questions, please ask! BTW - I am thinking about offering another big shot club if anyone is interested please contact me. I will need to work out the price again, but basically it's a 4 month club where you pay 1/4 of the starter kit each month. The 4th month you will have your very own Big Shot. This is the best way to get the Big Shot without taking a huge hit to your stamping budget.
Have a GREAT day!
p.s. Those of you who have registered for the Scrapbooking event tomorrow I'll see you at 2pm!!!

When I was looking at my stamp sets I didn't have any stamp sets that really welcomed a new neighbor. Stampin' Up! does have a stamp set in the catalog I just do not own it . . . yet. :o) I did get the Welcome from the Warm Words stamp set and the houses are from the Neighborhood Jumbo Wheel. I used the Eyelet Boarder Punch along the bottom of the Kiwi Kiss Card Stock and I used my Aqua Painters and ink pads to color the house. I finished the card by adding some Kiwi Kiss Ribbon around the top.
Very fun and fast to make. I think this card would also make a very cute "We've Moved" card to announce your new address.
**Card Club Update**
I wanted to let you know that there is still room to join the next session of card clubs that start next month! Currently I have spots open in my Tuesday & Wednesday groups. PLEASE NOTE - that the Tuesday club has been changed to meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month and the Wednesday group has always been scheduled for the 3rd Wednesday of the month, so no change there. Tuesday has 7 spots left and Wednesday only has 4. - - Current Club Members. . . if you get a friend to join card club you will receive a FREE package of 8 1/2 x 11" card stock (5.50 value). There is not limit to the number of package you can earn.
**Make and Take Reminder**
My next make and take class is scheduled for May 2nd. Cost is $25.00, because you will be receiving a whole package of Rub Ons to use on your projects. We are making a Gift Sack Scrapbook and a Top Note Box. These items will be very similar to the ones shown in the photo below. Please register by Thursday, April 23rd, so supplies can be ordered.
**April Workshop Help**

The designer paper used is Urban Oasis and the top layer of the butterfly is Velum.

Here are Blake's eggs.
I'm glad you stopped by to take a peak into my Easter, now on with the card sample. I was needing a quick and fun birthday card and here is what I came up with:
Stamp Set: On Your Birthday
Card Stock: Regal Rose; Basic Black; Level 1 Print Pack (Hostess DSP)
Ink: Basic Black
Punches: Round Tab; Scallop Oval; Large Oval; Small Oval
Other Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals; White Gel Pen; Silver Brad; Valet (Ribbon Originals)
I also wanted to share a close up of the purse. The purse handles were done by first punching the small oval out of basic black card stock and then punching the large oval over it. This gives you a nice handle for your purse, which is a round tab punch folded in half. The Black is from the Ribbon Originals Valet set. I really need to get using these before the new catalog comes out and they are gone!
New Catalog starts July 1st. Remember ALL card club members get this catalog for FREE!!! Clubs are forming now, please let me know if you're interested.
Have a GREAT day!
