Star Wars Birthday card-Punch Art

Hey Guys!

Ever year I make a Star Wars Themed Birthday card, you can see one here, here and here. So, after MUCH thought and stress……(I am NOT a Star War fan myself) this is the card I made this year:

And the inside:

To make this card I used only current supplies from Stampin’ Up!, I took a picture of all the dies all ready to go (except for one triangle that I had to fussy cut to get it the right way).


Funny how this goes each and every year……
I think for MONTHS trying to think which Character I can make, then it gets down to the wire. So, after a lot of research, I finally pick which one I’ll do. It’s trial and error, but it ends up a labor of love. My daughter is going to frame all of them at some point, so I want them to be worthy!
Of course, when Isaac goes to open the card, he BARELY pays attention to the card at all! He is just too excited about the $5.00 I always put inside. Then, my daughter calls him back after he runs off with the cash, and makes him look at the card! hahahaha Eventually, I figure that he will appreciate the effort taken for the cards, but for now I know that MY baby girl loves them! 🙂
Any ideas for me for NEXT year? It’s never too early to start planning!

Happy, Happy, Happy Meer Kats!

Hey Guys!

I’m sure I am not the only one who loves the Stampin’ Up! stamp set The Gang’s All Meer! This stamp set makes me smile. It’s easy to create a card using these happy little guys. Saw this card on Pinterest and decided to jump off from Christine’s card, here is her card:

To make it mine, I decided to change it up a bit:

I love layers, almost every card I make has at least one layer, most have more! Do you find it as hard as I do to NOT have layers? Or to even make a card without doodads all over it…….that’s me in a nutshell!

The inside of the card is super cute too!
