Zoo Babies Birthday Card

This card was inspired by Amy Koenders. Her cheerful color combination of Marina Mist, Smoky Slate and Crushed Curry was perfect for this birthday card! The card features "Zoo Babies" and "Remembering Your Birthday" stamp sets. Although the embossing folder and ribbon are retired, substitutions could easily be made for both.

Double-Slider Card from a Friend

I (Scot) was so thrilled to receive this card in the mail yesterday from my friend and fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator Sarah Edwards. This is a double-slider card - tutorials can be found on YouTube, and I believe that Sarah watched the one done by Linda Bauwin. She used the Build a Birthday stamp set and the Lots of Labels Framelits. LOVE IT, SO COOL!!!

Painters Tape Background Stamping Technique

Check out our first Stampin' Siblings video - Painters Tape Background Stamping Technique. This was used on one of the cards that Scot did for our Stamp Across America event a couple of weeks ago. Here is the completed card:
The painters tape background and fox are on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock and Stampin' Dimensionals were used to layer it. The fox is one of the images from "The Wilderness Awaits" stamp set. The greeting is from the "Wetlands" stamp set. The card is finished off with some of the new silver thread. We hope you found the video tutorial useful.

Get Well Soup Pouch

This pouch was made with the Envelope Punch Board, and is the perfect size for a packet of chicken soup. The pouch is decorated with the "Get Well Soup" stamp and die cut with the Lots of Labels Framelits. The background piece of So Saffron cardstock was embossed with the Happy Heart embossing folder.

Little Letters Thinlits Monogram Note Cards

The Stampin' Up Little Letters Thinlits are perfect for making monogrammed note cards. These note cards also feature the Lovely Lace embossing folder, and embellished with Pearl Basic Jewels and 5/8" Very Vanilla satin ribbon. The letters were punched out with the 1 1/4" scallop circle, and layered on the 1 1/2" circle and 1 3/4" scallop circle. These could be easily created in bulk as a great wedding or birthday gift.

If at First You Don't Succeed...TRY, TRY AGAIN!

It's been quite some time since our last post here, but once again, we recently returned from the annual Stampin' Up! Inspire.Create.Share North American Convention and we're feeling motivated to try this again! I'm sure most of you can understand how life can get in the way and priorities get shifted, but it would be our pleasure to share our stamping passion with the world on a regular basis! Before the Stampin' Up! Convention started last week, we had the pleasure of collaborating with some of our friends to host a stamping event, Stamp Across America. We had lots of enthusiastic stampers that joined us over the two-day event, and to say that we had an ABSOLUTE BLAST would be an understatement. We are so grateful to those who supported our event, and for all of the friendships that we've formed with these BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE! Here are some photos from the event, including a couple of the cards that Kira and I designed.
