Come Sail Away Fun Day

I have a super quick and easy masculine card for you today.  I love the Sailing Home stamp set for creating masculine cards.  Just a couple colors of ink and a few stamps and viola — a fabulous card.  Most of the cards I’ve created with this stamp set and designer paper have been shades of blues.  This time I used Mossy Meadow and I love how it turned out.

Welcome Little Bug

It seems to be a baby boom time.  I have stampers who are becoming grandmas — some for the first time, co-workers having babies – two are first time mommies.  I thought the Wiggle Worm stamp set was perfect for this little girl baby welcome.

Wiggle Worm Stamp Set, 2018-2020 In Color 6" x 6" designer paper, Baby, Stamp with Peggy
The Black, Whisper White and Lovely Lipstick color combo is perfect for a sweet little girl.  Lovely Lipstick designer paper is from the 2018-2020 6″ x 6″ Designer Paper Stack — I love these prints and they were great with the lady bug.

Magnolia Blooms Missing Middle Card

I love the Magnolia Lane Suite but there is another stamp set that coordinates with this suite that you won’t find in the Annual Catalog.  The Magnolia Blooms stamp set can be found in the Experience Creativity brochure that is geared toward new stampers.  It’s a small brochure with just a few stamp sets/kits so it isn’t so overwhelming.  This great brochure has a few exclusive stamp sets that can’t be found in any other catalog and the sets are amazing!!!  What makes it even better is Stampin’ Up! has created kits from these stamp sets.  The Magnolia Blooms Kit is the stamp set, note cards with envelopes, Clear Block D, 2 Stampin’ Spots (mini ink pads), and a Snail Adhesive — everything you need to make 10 cards with envelopes and have a stamp set, block and inks left to use over and over.

Today’s card features the Magnolia Blooms stamp set with the Magnolia Lane Designer Paper and I have some directions for you for this missing middle card.  I hope you have as much fun with it as I did.
