Just Floating By – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello Stampers,

I decided to not be so serious in my stamping today.  You really need to lighten up your attitude when you are creating juvenile cards, right?  I used the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set, 149367 and surrounded this cute walrus with additional ice in the water.  Although his piece of ice is extremely little he seems quite chill about it, probably because he is a good swimmer.  Don’t you just love all of his fat wrinkles, lol.

Frosty Winter Woods – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello Stampers,

Once again, I am inspired by what is happening around me.  This morning I woke to our first snowfall this season.  The snow is beautiful but very chilly, just like my card today created with the Winter Woods Stamp Set, 147661.

Holiday Treat – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello Stampers,

My card today is all about the festive white and red stripes.  Sometimes all it takes for a scene to look well balanced is to repeat a pattern.  I repeated the stripes in the card layout, ribbon and of course, the candy cane.

Adding simple well placed shadows sure helps with creating a bit of depth in the scene also.

Stampin’ Up! hit the ball out of the park with the Cup of Christmas Bundle, stamps and coordinating dies, so fun to work with!  This card would certainly be a treat for someone on your card list too.

Penguin Kisses – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello Stampers,

Have you picked up the darling Playful Penguins stamp set yet?  I used it here to make a Winter Anniversary or Wedding Card.  I decked out the layout in Designer Series Papers and trimmed it in Copper Foil to give it that super special/fancy touch.

Also used an easy masking technique in order to pose the penguins together and give the scene some great depth.
