Stampin' UP! To The Moon stamp set was used for this card. I created the night sky background paper as well. This fun fold is simple and helps showcase whatever you choose to put on the front.
I saw the Days to Remember set in the new catalog on page 18. It is a calendar set that I thought was really cool, but it immediately overwhelmed me! All those numbers for the dates, how did it work? How would you line that up to get the dates you needed. It was just scary and I kept moving.
Well, I happened to find a post on the demonstrator site where another demo shared how to line it up!! The key is to go across the stamp pad on the narrow side!! You line up your numbers according to where your weeks start!! Piece of cake once you see it. So, I thought I'd show you the visual here so you too can be amazed at how easy it works and not shy away from a set you might get a lot of use out of!!
I had to cancel my May classes due to my stepfather passing away and my dad needing my help during the same timeframe. It was a crazy month! I can always push the stamp a stack cards to other months, but not the Paper Pumpkin. Those cards are specific to a monthly kit. I had these cards designed for the "So Cool" kit. I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out. I especially like the flowers created from the kiwi popsicle! I'll figure out what to do for the customers that missed out on the in person class and get moving onto the May kit. I'm starting to feel like I'm close to being back on track!
Stampin' UP! Poinsettia Petals and coordinating dies was used to create this card for a May sketch challenge. I hope you are able to make your own creations using this layout.

I also made this card into a gift card holder where the poinsettia portion lifts up.
I wanted to show you this card I made and gave to a boy at school. He had found a bag on the playground. He picked it up and put dandelions in it. He had it all twisted up. I told him thanks for picking it up and took it to throw it away for him. On our walk inside I was stretching the bag around and we were talking about how cool the flowers looked in there. I told him I was going to take a picture of it and make something with it.
Well, I did. It is rough, because I printed the picture on plain paper, but I used it for the background paper. I created a thank you for him with the dandelion stamps and wrote him a little note inside. He thought that it was pretty cool I did that for him. It made my day to see him with such a big smile!
