Waterfront Birthday Card

The Waterfront birthday card in today’s post is a great card when you need a generic themed card.  It features the Waterfront Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Well Written Framelits Dies. Notice the card size.  It uses the 4″ x 6″ Night of Navy Card Base from the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Cards & Envelopes.  The Memories & More cards & envelopes simplify card making and offers two sizes of cards with matching envelopes.  

Waterfront Stamp Set Masculine Birthday Card

Since the card base is larger, a couple of cardstock layers fill the blank space.  Tan and navy are a wonderful color combination. Therefore, Crumb Cake cardstock is sandwiched between the Night of Navy layers.  Stamp the images from the Waterfront Stamp Set onto the Whisper White cardstock using a variety of classic stampin’ pad colors. Use a blender pen to soften any overlapping lines.  The color selection for the card above includes Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Shaded Spruce, Early Espresso, Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Crushed Curry.  When stamping the center mountain with the Crumb Cake ink, stamp off the image onto a scrap paper once before stamping onto the card. Stamp the mountains on the left and right without stamping off.    

After stamping the images onto the card, use the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add texture. Unfortunately the texture is not evident in the photo but it has the appearance of a linen paper. 

Birthday Wishes is cut from Night of Navy cardstock using Well Written Framelits Dies.  TIP: attach a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the Night of Navy prior to cutting with the framelits. This makes it easy to add the sentiment to the card front. 

The Waterfront Stamp Set is perfect for creating generic birthday cards and is my go to set for masculine themed cards.  Order your supplies below under Project Materials.

Thanks for stopping by!  See you on Friday with a new project idea.

CASE the Catalog – Signs of Santa

This week’s CASE the Catalog features the Signs of Santa stamp set and the Santa’s Signpost Framelits Dies.  The card is on page 18 in the Holiday Catalog.  Though we are still having summer temperatures here in Georgia and the calendar says it’s Fall, I am busy prepping for the upcoming holidays including Christmas.  Yes, I know it’s not even Halloween yet but I promise additional Halloween projects will be posted soon.   Now on to today’s feature card…the base uses the 4″ x 6″ large note card from the Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Cards & Envelopes as shown on page 21 in the Holiday Catalog.  Not only is it nice to have a large card but the cut and scored cards are a great time saver.  Check out Santa – he’s cut from the Santa’s Workshop Designer Series Paper (DSP) using the coordinating Santa’s Signpost framelit.  Card making just got easier!

Signs of Santa Stamp Set


  • Signs of Santa stamp set and Santa’s Signpost Framelits  
  • Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Cards & Envelopes
  • Santa’s Workshop Designer Series Paper (red dotted DSP 4-3/4″ x 3″, green & white DSP 3″ x 1-1/2″) 
  • Whisper White Card Stock  (2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″)
  • Garden Green Classic Stampin’ Pad and Poppy Parade Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Stitched Shape Dies
  • Poppy Parade Textured Ribbon (approx. 8″)
  • Snail Adhesive and Stampin’ Dimensionals

CASE the Catalog Steps:

  1. Use the Santa die from Santa’s Signpost Framelits to cut Santa from the Santa’s Workshop DSP.  (or on Shimmery White CS stamp Santa with black Stazon Ink and use Aqua painter to color Santa using Real Red, Balmy Blue and Mango Melody inks.)
  2. Use the large square Stitched Shape Die to cut the Whisper White CS.  Stamp the sentiment in the upper right corner using Garden Green ink and attach Santa using Stampin’ dimensionals.
  3. To cut the tail in the red polka dot DSP, on the reverse side of the paper use a pencil to lightly draw a line 3/4″ long at the center of the 3″ side.  Use scissors to cut from each edge to the center point.  This will create a perfect inverted “v” tail.  Attach to the card front using snail adhesive.
  4.  Use snail adhesive to add the green DSP layer.
  5. Fold the Poppy Parade Texture Ribbon keeping the bottom portion approximately 1″ longer than the top.  Adhere in the center of the green DSP layer.
  6. Use dimensionals to attach the Whisper White layer over the layers to complete the card front.
  7. To finish card interior, use Garden Green ink and the “and more!” stamp to complete the phrase.  
  8. The envelope flap was stamped using Poppy Parade ink to stamp the North Pole seal.
Happy Stamping!

Memories & More

Creating Memories to Last a Lifetime

As with every new catalog, comes new card packs.  There are new Memories & More card packs in 2018-2019 annual catalog.  The best part about these new card packs is that they have been redesigned to support card making a little more.  Although they are designed for scrapbooking, it’s nice that they coordinate with some of our suites.   I do appreciate the Memories & More line because it makes memory keeping so much easier.  Since so many people either don’t have time to scrapbook or don’t know how, it’s great to have something that supports scrapbooking and helps guide even the novice scrapbooker.  

What Can You Do With Memories & More

These kits are the perfect way to create cards, tags, scrapbooking and anything you can think of using your adhesive.  There are envelopes, stickers and a variety of cardstock sizes of paper to all coordinate with our suites.  When you add a few of your own embellishments or accents, the possibilities are endless.  There are a few different card packs to choose from and each one coordinates with a suite.   Each suite has a number of products that also coordinate.  All of these products make it so much fun for any level crafter to have fun with.  They also make it easy to do projects with children and groups.

Stampin’ Up! put together this new video to give you an idea about what is new with the Memories and More line as well as show us some samples from the card packs.  Take a look as Tanner walks us through it:

You don’t have to be a scrapbooker to make use of any of these card packs.  Think outside the box.  You can check out all the Memories and More products in my store.  Use them for scrapbooking, cardmaking, tags, or anything you can think of.  If you need any assistance with these products, please don’t hesitate to contact me, I’m happy to help.
