Sending Smiles

 Good Morning & Happy Fri-YAY!

The weekend is here! Do you have any fun plans?
No plans here other than a quick trip out this evening to get a new pair of sneakers.
I know, real exciting! LOL
It's to be cloudy with off & on showers all weekend so maybe we will get the bikes out at some point. We've already rode bikes in the rain, just have to make sure we aren't getting any storms!

Today my card is a pretty one using a new stamp set from the new 2022-2023 Stampin Up! Annual Catalog. It also uses some new In Colors...



The colors are from the new 2022-2024 In Colors, Orchid Oasis and Parakeet Party.
The stamp set is the Sending Smiles set with it's coordinating Sending Dies.

Card Details:

Stamps: Sending Smiles
Ink: Orchid Oasis, Parakeet Party
Cardstock: Orchid Oasis, Basic White, Vellum, In Color DSP
Accessories: Sending Dies, Scalloped Contour Dies, In Color Enamel Dots, Mini Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Aren't those colors pretty together?!
They sure are bright, fresh & very fun and perfect for some summer time projects!

Simple Birthday Cards

 Hello & Happy Thursday!

We've been having a lovely stretch of weather here in PA but today the clouds are to roll in with showers the next few days. They say it won't be a total washout like last weekend was so I am hopeful that we might be able to try another bike ride. Last evening we loaded the bikes up and went to the Rail Trail for a ride. The weather was a 10 plus! It was the first time we had the bikes out in almost a year and I hope that we can get back at it on a regular basis. I am hurting a little today but happy that we took that first step to getting back at it. I enjoy it and I wish I could share the sweet fragrance of the honeysuckle blooming alongside the trail. It was not overwhelming but such a sweet smell. I really love this time of year for many reasons!




Today I have a set of cards that my card lady requested for her June cards.
She loves hydrangea's and has some in her yard.
She wanted a simple pack of Happy Birthday cards using the Hydrangea Hill DSP.
This pack of paper is retired but that does not matter to her, she says to use what I have on hand and keep them simple.




Card Details:

Stamps: Pansy Patch
Ink: Gorgeous Grape
Cardstock: Gorgeous Grape, Basic White, Hydrangea Hill DSP (retired)
Accessories: Circle Layering Framelits, Brushed Brass Butterflies, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

When I deliver a card order to my card lady she always tells me how she loves the cards I made for her. She was pretty thrilled with this set because she loves the paper but also loved the cute butterfly embellishments! I love them, too! 
They lay flat and do not bulk up your projects! The perfect little add on!

He's All That

 Hello & Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a nice weekend! It was a pretty dreary, rainy one here in PA.
Friday & Saturday it rained all day! We had over 4 inches of rain since Friday morning.
 
Yesterday turned out to be a nice day! We took Bailee out to the Rail Trail for a nice walk which she enjoyed but it played her out! She was a happy girl getting out for a long walk after 2 days of constant rain.

Today is my dear, sweet hubby's birthday! 
Ryan requested a card for him last week so this is what I made him.




I used the new He's The Man Suite from the new 2022-2023 Stampin Up! Annual Catalog.
This suite of products was ordered during preorder since I knew Shawn's birthday & Father's Day was coming and this suite of products are right up his alley!

Card Details:

Stamps: He's All That
Ink: Cajun Craze
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla, He's The Man DSP
Accessories: All That Dies, Rustic Metallic Dots, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Shawn is a huge fan of cars so I knew this suite would be perfect for him.
There are bits & pieces in the DSP that can be used for scrapbooking, too!
I think the set of dies are amazing and very versatile! 
I can see them used with many other stamps not just this masculine stamp set.

You're Amazing!

 Hello & Happy Saturday, Everyone!

Another very rainy day here in PA!
We've had over 3 inches of rain since 5am Friday morning. It's crazy that it has rained constantly! It sure makes for a dreary day!

I have a quick card to share with you today that just brightens the day!
It uses the retired Create With Friends stamp set that I grabbed on my last order and I dd not have time to add it to my Retiring Series.



The Create With Friends stamp set was a Million Dollar Sales Achiever set that was created by Jennifer Cotton. It is loaded with lots of words to create many different headlines on your cards. I am sad that I snagged it once it retired but I will use it as often as I need it! I thought it would be perfect to use for a Stamp Day w/ Friends invite if and when I get back to having them. I have not had my stamp friends here since the beginning of December and miss them terribly. With Covid flaring up and Gigi's health going downhill, I just stopped. Maybe soon I may surprise the girls with an invite!

Card Details:

Stamps: Create With Friends (retired), Sweet Strawberry (retired)
Ink: Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party
Cardstock: Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party, Basic White, Pattern Party DSP (retired)
Accessories: Strawberry Builder Punch (retired), Tasteful Labels Dies (retired), Iridescent Rhinestones, Mini Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue
