It’s that time of year where Dad’s Grandpa’s, Brothers, Uncle’s and the like are celebrating a day that’s all about them- Fathers Day! And who couldn’t use a masculine card idea, am I right? So I’ve made this adorable Shirt & Tie Card for you today. Girls are SOOOO much easier to create and buy for. I am always looking for new ideas for my husband for Fathers Day or Birthdays. Guys are hard. What about you? Do you have any ideas you could share with me on gifts or cards that are masculine?
Below, you can watch the video on how to create this Shirt & Tie card. The dimensions for the card itself are 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.
Slide the card over to the 1″ mark on your Stampin Trimmer and the proceed to cut 1″ off the back of the card. (on the top)
Next, take your card front and line it up at the 1″ line again on the trimmer. Cut over to 1 1/2″ on each side. But don’t cut off! This is so that you can fold your collar over.
The tie was 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. The video will show you how to fold it. Enjoy!
Well, who woulda thought? The Daisy Delight Bundle has been a top seller already! The catalog just came out, but the stamp set, paper and matching punch are super popular! I don’t have the stamp set or the punch (YET), but check out this paper. I just LOVE the navy and yellow together. It’s such rich colors that just pop off the paper- dontcha think? And the Butterfly’s go perfectly- I mean, it’s a summer looking card with summer insects right? Wait- is a butterfly an insect? It is, right?
I’m just loving this color combo! I’m not much of a pastel type person- so these colors SPEAK to me. If you are a pastel person though- not too worry, there’s some of that paper in this gorgeous pack too. Check it out…
Thanks again for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this Delightful Daisy DSP card and will come by again soon! Remember… Think It! Ink it! Happy Stamping- Angela 😉

The new Live May class features the stamp set Cool Treats!

In this class, you will leave with 4 cards, a cupcake holder and as a bonus, you will also get a Wink of Stella pen and roll of White Bakers Twine!

The online class with videos will be up shortly, so make sure you are a subscriber on my newsletter to get updated information!
Hello there. With the warmer temperatures brings new and exciting card designs. I got you covered for the summer. Take a look at this ice cream card design. Looks good enough to eat doesn’t it? I don’t know about you but ice cream is my weakness and I have a really hard time resisting it when it’s put in front of me. But don’t worry, I’m not going to eat this card. Unless it’s a week I’m doing the Dr. Oz detox and then all bets are off.
You can picture the taste of these can’t you? I mean the peach colored popsicle is definitely an orange creamsicle right? The green ice cream is totally mint chocolate chip with that chocolate dipped stuff on top. And the other one is definitely a raspberry sorbet of some sorts. Yummy. Oh nuts, now I’m hungry.
In this card I used some of the In-Color Designer Series Paper, Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Cool Treats stamp set.. Now this stamp set does come with the coordinating die, but I didn’t use them in this card. You can see all the supplies I used below. It’s all about the layers. Bring on SUMMER! Product List
What’s up everybody? Who is a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber? Who got the February kit and wants to make more cards using the same stamps? Well, today is your lucky day! I’ve got an Paper Pumpkin Alternate Card for you!
This is the same stamps set and ink – just a different card. What do you think?
So obviously, we used some different cardstock and tools to make this card, but we used the same stamp and ink pad. I think it came out super cute and could be used for anybody- but because of the colors, it’s perfect for the guy in your life!
The “CELEBRATE” was just stamped repeatedly down the left hand side of the card and then the words “Happy Birthday” were cut out with scissors. It didn’t need to be cut out but it adds some texture to the card.
Hey party people! ha ha ha… I’ve got lots o’coffee going on today! Woohoo… Anyhow, this adorable card was made in one of my library classes last month. It’s a cute little thank you using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlit Dies.
It actually came together pretty fast. I embossed the paper first in the Big Shot machine using the brick embossing folder. By the way, you’ll want to use the extra thick white card stock because this is a one layer card and you don’t want it to be flimsy.
Next, I stamped the three different colors as a background. You see how it didn’t stamp in-between the bricks? I should have stamped it first probably. Maybe that was another day I had too much coffee?
Then we use the Big Shot machine again to cut out the swirly thingamajig’s. That’s a technical term by the way. You’ll want to glue those down using either liquid glue, fine tip glue, or glue dots and roll up the glue dots so that they are really little. If you do use the multipurpose glue (which is my favorite by the way), make sure you use hardly any at all so that big clumps of glue don’t come squeezing out the sides.
Then we stamped the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo. Use your scissors to cut up the individual words., Looks like a typewriter, doesn’t it? Reminds me of a ransom note, ha ha. The list below is all the supplies I used with this project. You can click on the images to see them closer or purchase!
Hey friends! Today I want to talk a little bit more about this 3D Easter project that we made during a Thursday Theater a few weeks ago. It looks like an adorable carrot and we made it using the classic sour cream container technique. You can check the original post here.
How many of you have used the sour cream container technique? It’s super fast and easier than you think! To begin with, you can use any size of paper you want, so long as it’s a square. For example, this was 6″ x 6″. You could do 4″ x 4″, 12″ x 12″, 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″, and so on. This was a big “carrot” so to speak so I went larger than those little bitty containers.
The trick is where you place the adhesive! Let’s take a look at this diagram to give you a better idea of what I mean.
So you start by placing your adhesive down first. Something like Tear and Tape works best because the tape has a cover on one side that you have to rip off. You can keep it covered until you’re ready to use it.
Then, you roll it into a tube and glue together on the long strip side. Then, simply press on one side that will be your bottom to adhere. The top side will adhere in the opposite direction, but you don’t want to glue it or push it together until you’ve filled it with your goodies 🙂
That’s all for today! I hope you enjoyed this Sour Cream Container project and will come by again soon! Remember… Think It! Ink it! Happy Stamping- Angela 😉
Hi there everybody! Today Stampin’ Up! released it’s retiring products list and I can promise you that the quickest things to go- are going to be all things related to the 2015-2017 In-Colors. In fact, some of these are already backordered.

Take a glance and if you see something that you’ve had on your wish list- DON’T WAIT! Like, seriously, grab it A.S.A.P. because they will be gone before you know it.
You can also join me on Thursday, while I go through the entire Annual and Occasions Catalog on Facebook LIVE at 11 a.m. EST. Make sure to have your catalog and a highlighter or sharpie ready to mark everything as retired.
Hi Friends. This card has a cute little story to it. I needed to make a thank you card for my Aunt & Uncle. You see, we moved about 2 years ago and it happened to be 6 houses down from them. They are the best- always inviting us over, plowing our driveway during snowstorms, and lots more. But the other day I went to get my mail and you’ll never believe it….
I went to my mailbox and there was a dozen eggs in there! Ha ha ha- Ahhh the country life. My Uncle has chickens and they have been producing more than they can eat. So, he dropped the eggs off in my mailbox! Aren’t they the best? If you’ve never had fresh eggs- I highly recommend it. So much better than the ones in the store. Heck- if my husband wasn’t opposed to it, I’d get chickens myself! He thinks they stink but I could put them in the way back of the yard!!! Although- my doggies may think differently- he he.
SO, you can see where the inspiration for this card came into play, right? They are good “eggs”. You can scroll down below for all the supplies I used in this card.
Hey there friends. Sale-A- Bration has wrapped up for another year at Stampin’ Up! but that doesn’t mean it’s done for you guys! I’ve got some surprises in store just for my customers. But first, let’s chat about these cards- a Taco bus? Too stinking cute! And interactive!
I made girl and boy cards because we have so many birthdays coming up and it’s just easier to give gift cards. I wanted something cute to move on the card so I added a tag. Now, I can stick a glue dot to the tag and attach my gift card for them to pull out!
I mean, can we “taco” ’bout how awesome you are? LOL! This set is the coolest. It’s called Tasty Trucks and it was one of the free sets during Sale-A-Bration. I love it. Sometimes I sell some of my retired sets because I can’t show them to customers anymore. I mean, I “can”, but I don’t want to show you something that you can’t buy! In any event, I think I’ll be hanging onto this one for awhile!
It’s an interactive card. See that tassle? The tab pulls out which is adorbs! Take a look.
Ok, so the details:
This is a flat card, it doesn’t open. So the base is your typical card size of 5 1/2″ x 4 1/2″
Pink or Blue Layer: 4″ x 5 1/4″
Yellow Layer: 3 1/8″ x 4 1/8″
White Layer: 3″ x 4″
Tag: 2″ x 4″
I colored them in using a Blender pen and inks shown below. The little circle notch was the 1/2″ circle punch. Let me know if you have any questions- I would love your comments. Product List
Thanks again for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed these TACO BUS projects and will come by again soon! Tomorrow I will be announcing a special just for my customers in April! Remember… Think It! Ink it! Happy Stamping- Angela 😉
Hello everybody! I hope you are having a wonderful week! Today I’m going to share with you what we talked about during Thursday Theater- Paper Piecing.
You can see all these awesome projects in the video below. We made 3 gorgeous cards!

Friends- remember these In Colors are retiring in May. Make sure you have the ink refills for your ink pads soon! Two of them are already on back order and soon they will be completely sold out. It happens every year- sometimes before the Retiring List even comes out! Make sure to protect your investment! Those pads are no good to you once they are dry!
