Masculine Card With TGIF Challenge #44

Today's card will be one that I potentially make for our Stampin' Up team demo swap. I may have to make a few more extras also, as we have lots of boy birthdays in our family. I never seem to have enough boy cards laying around as they all get used up!

If you noticed the nice glitzy shimmer on the robot in the close up, that's the new Wink Of Stella pen. This pen makes it so quick to add that little extra pizzazz to your project.

For inspiration today, I decided to combine this card with the TGIF challenge #44. This was a mix up challenge from previous weeks, so I basically combined the layouts from TGIF challenges #42 & #43. You can click on the icon below to see what it's all about. It's super fun!
Feel free to contact me (email:carebearstamps@gmail.com), if you are interested in learning more about Stampin' Up!, would like to invest in some new products, host a workshop, or sign up with our team. I'd love to share this hobby with you.

Pot O' Gold - Something To Say Stamp Set By Stampin' Up!

Now that Valentine's Day is over & February is nearing the end, I feel like it is fair game to share this cute little 3-D pot of gold with you all. I have had it staring at me in my craft room for quite some time & I'm sure that any day now my little people will steal the gold chocolates out of there. 
The inspiration for this project came from Create With Dee. She has a great video tutorial on her blog that shows you how to make the rainbow using the Stampin' Up! Circles Collections Framelits. I decided to take that rainbow and transform the idea into a 3-D pot of gold. The Fringe Scissors helped with my grass, and with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack I was able to create these cutsie clovers. How do you think it turned out? Now I just need to get me a leprechaun and some real gold!

If you are interested in learning more about Stampin' Up feel free to contact me today (email:carebearstamps@gmail.com). I'd love to help you out with your papercrafting needs!

Thanks for stopping by & happy stamping!

Happy Together - Pedal Pusher Stamp Set By Stampin' Up!

I'm back at it with some inspiration to share. This cute card was made as part of a challenge that my up-upline Kristine Burns offers once a month. She'll mail us a few supplies, we then combine those items with whatever we have in our stash, and we come up with our own creation. It's always so neat to see how everyone has such different ideas. Kinda like life I guess?
When this little bicycle built for two came out, with Sale-A-Bration's 2nd release of free products you can earn, I knew I had to have it! You can get yours free too with a product purchase of $60 during Sale-A-Bration! It comes with a few different sentiments, making it oh so versatile. The doily, and the lacy mint macaron ribbon add that extra bit of frill! As for the wee flower embellishment, I backed it with mint macaron paper. I like my flower petals to be filled with colour!
Feel free to contact me (email: carebearstamps@gmail.com) if you are interested in learning more about Stampin' Up!, or if you wish to host a party, place an order, or join my team.

Happy Crafting!
