Happy Day to everyone! The layout of this card is called a "Joy Fold". I have to tell you, I wasn't having a lot of joy while making it! Measuring and I have never been the best of friends, I usually eyeball things. The tutorial on SCS uses specific directions, so I that I'd better comply if I was going to make this work! I think the picture looks better than the real card....maybe it will grow on me. Usually, when I don't really like how something turns out, others do! Weird, huh.
Anyway, here goes: The cardbase is Ruby Red layered with Apricot Appeal, both from Stampin' Up! Patterned Paper from the Spring Stack-DCWV. ( I just love these....they are a great value!) The stamped image is from the $1.99 bin at Archivers. Brads and Ribbon are Making Memories. I used a Sharpie to put polka dots on my white ribbon to give it some pizazz. I think I will try this "Joy Fold" thing again, maybe I will have better luck and it will come easier!
Gotta go mow the lawn....have a great day!

Well, this was REALLY fun. It reminds me of my daughter. I know she will like the design, although she is not always a real "PINK" girl. Sorry, Beck...... The stamps are from the "Retro Boutique" set that I purchased from GinaKDesigns.
I used my Berry Bliss DP from Stampin' Up! (can't seem to get away from that stuff lately!) The ink and cardstock (Pink Passion) are also from Stampin' Up!. The card base is Confetti Cream. For the rectangle, I used my good 'ole Fiskars Edgers. (those have been around awhile, huh) and for the circle, my Small Scalloped Nestibility. The ribbon is from Offray and the Brads from JoAnne's. i working on another card from this set......it is so fun!
Have a wonderiforous day!! Thanks for stopping by!

(Can't be all bad......) I enjoyed using by Berry bliss DP on this card, Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip cardstock are used for the card base and for layering. The sentiment is from a Linda Grayson stamp that I have had for years, but haven't used much, just inked up the words with a marker and tada...worked for this card. The flourish is from a Heidi Grace clear stamp set, it is stamped in Close to Cocoa ink. The cute little square brads are from JoAnne's.

Today's card is a card to self.....it says " Age is only a number-mine is unlisted." It is a wacky sort of card, but sometimes days are like that!!

They colors on this second picture look a little different, I'm sure it is because I put the card up against a different color to shot the single card.
Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, well it is cool in the stamp room! I have been doing some computer work for my hubby and his partner, so it cramps my creativity a bit.......thinking too hard is BAD.....the days seem to go so quickly and I don't seem to get much done.
Today my card can be used for either an anniversary, feminine birthday or maybe even a sympathy card. I will be using it for a friend's anniversary next week.
My Sis and I went to Archivers the other day and I am anxious to use the new clear stamps I bought there. I can see MANY clear stamps in my future!
Stay cool and have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
