Happy Tails

NC Demos Blog Hop – Cute Critters

Today’s card is part of the NC Demo’s Blog Hop. This month’s theme is cute critters, and since I’m a dog-lover, I designed my card using the new Happy Tails Bundle!

Remember, today is the FINAL day of Sale-a-Bration so get those last-second orders in by midnight so you don’t miss out! Not sure what to order? Try this adorable bundle out!



In case you’re wondering who are the NC Demos… We are a self-managed group of Stampin’ Up Demonstrators that live in North Carolina, USA. We have our own Facebook page where we set up events for fellow demonstrators to attend, we share project ideas and business tips as well.

Today’s card uses the Happy Tails bundle with some of our FREE Sale-a-Bration Designer Series Paper called Painted Seasons. You can earn this paper for FREE by placing a $50 order – but you better hurry, Sale-a-bration ends tonight (March 31st) and this paper will be GONE!

The Happy Tails bundle has a great punch that will cut your dog AND a cute little heart too! The stamp set has multiple pattern options for your dog so you can make most any breed / color you want… so many possibilities… I used a simple masking technique on the sentiment to cover up the word “Heart” because I wanted to use the little heart punch in its place… I think it gives it such a cute touch.

You can purchase all the items I used on this card from my Online Store by clicking the links below. My store is ALWAYS open!

Now, Hop on over to the next blog to see what other cute critters some of my fellow NC Demos created!

Abstract Impressions

Wow, its been a while…

I have been in craft-room-renovation-mode since the first of the year, and although it didn’t require a full construction crew and engineers, it was a slow process because I was doing it all myself and I went through EVERYthing I had and purged a lot of things – this was so refreshing to do!  I will post pictures and details soon…

Now to today’s projects… Its one of my favorite times of year, Sale-a-Bration PLUS we have a wonderful Occasions Catalog.  As much as I love these products, I think we tend to overlook our still fabulous annual catalog this time of year.  Its been raining 4 out of the 7 days here for weeks, and I needed some brightness in my stamping life… so I thought I’d #bringthecattyback with these three cheery cards and do some #loveitchopit with my Garden Impressions designer paper.

All of today’s cards are fairly simple, and only require stamps, paper, ink and your trimmer.  That’s right, no punches, and no Big Shot!

CARD 1:

The first card features some Calypso Coral with a pop of Daffodil Delight.  Don’t you just love that sentiment: “If flowers were hugs, I’d send you a thousand”?!

CARD 2:

My next card is a bit more bold with the Melon Mambo.  The vellum helps draw your eyes to the stamped image and sentiment… and it just gives it that perfect little touch, don’t you agree?
