Dragon Punch Art Card


Yesterday was Beckett's, one of the grand Randall's and also one of my daycare angel, birthday party and he loves alligators/crocodiles. I bought him the Crocodile Dentist game and wanted a card to go along with it.  So, where is the first place I go for inspiration?  Yep, Pinterest!  Who doesn't love Pinterest.  

If you would like some ideas and inspiration I have a pinterest page called Stampin Scrapper.  Click HERE to check it out.

I found this adorable punch art, which I love doing, created by Alex's Creative Corner.  She created a great template for you to know what punches she used to make it.  A lot of the punches are retired, but I know a lot of you love Stampin' Up! punches as much as I do, and you may still have them.  If you don't have the exact ones, you may have something similar that you could use. Here is her picture of her template.  

54017b936d0c991bc607769112b90ed2Isn't this wonderful.  It didn't take me long at all to create this card.  I used the Garden Green and Pear Pizzazz cardstock for the majority of the design.  I sponged it using the Old Olive ink.  

It made my day when Beckett saw my card and his eyes lit up.  He loved it and so did everyone else.  Yay!


What a fun filled two weeks I have had.  Emily came home from Texas on Monday, June 12th and the fun started!  We went up to Michigan to see my family and go on a wine tour with the ladies in our family.  We had so much fun!  I was able to get more polish pottery, eat at fabulous restaurants and spend a lot of time with my family.  It doesn't get any better than that.

We came home on Father's Day and spent the rest of the day with Mark.  He had made us a wonderful dinner when we got home.  I think it might be a little backwards.  I am pretty sure I was suppose to do that for him.  While Emily was here she got to see a lot of her friends from college as one of them got married over the weekend.  I was so happy for her that she got to see them.  It is hard when you live so far away from everyone.  They made wonderful memories that she will have forever.

We also had our second Disney meeting with the Randall's.  If you don't know who the Randall's are let me share the short version of the story.  6 years ago Todd and Kumiko came to see me about taking care of their new baby, Beckett.  I was thrilled to be able to have him in my daycare.  Fast forward to 3 years ago when Todd started talking to me about God, my experience with my walk with Jesus and going to church.  Todd started to join us on Sunday mornings and was baptized two years ago.  Through all of this they have become our family.  We call their children, now 3 of them, our grand Randall's.  They are like our grandchildren and their last name is Randall.  So if you ever here of me saying the grand Randall's now you know who I am talking about.  Here is a picture of them with Erica. 


Aren't they so cute!  I just love them!  We will be going to Disney with them next year and it is going to so fun to see it through their eyes.  I still remember the first time we took Emily and Erica and watching their expressions.  A memory I will hold forever.  We are a little bit of Disney fanatics in our household.  This will be our 7 time as a family and Mark and myself have gone there 8 times.  It is truly magical!

Emily is going back to Texas today :(  It won't be long until we see her again.  Actually it will be in 5 days!  We are going to head to Texas this weekend to help her move into her new apartment and have some more family time.  I can't wait!  

Here are some pictures of when we were on our wine tour in Michigan.  The scenery was beautiful, wine delicious (so I was told) and the weather was perfect.  We had a lot of laughs, reconnected and just truly enjoyed each other.  




Thank you for stopping in today and I hope you have a marvelous Monday and week!

Do you need an easy peasy birthday card?  I have the perfect one for you.  This card could be masculine or famine depending on the colors you use.  You could even dress it up more with a ribbon or rhinestones.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Marina Mist Cardstock #119682

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Pool Party Cardstock #122924

  • cut at 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

I used the Marina Mist and Pool Party to stamp the front of the card. The Happy Celebrations stamp set is a two step stamp set.  You stamp the Marina Mist part first and then Pool Party.  You are finished! Wasn't that fast and easy?

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.  We had a great time spending the afternoon with the grand Randall's.  Yesterday, I got to see one of my good friends, Lisa, get baptized.  It was such a wonderful event.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a marvelous Monday.

Cool Treats Birthday Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Cool Treats #142982, Frozen Treats Framelits #142756, Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper #142770, Occasions 2017, Birthday card, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to

One of the new stamp sets in the Occasions catalog is Tasty Treats. This is such a fun set with matching framelits, washi tape, designer series paper and sprinkles embellishments.  On this card I used the designer paper and the framelits.  One nice thing about this set is that it is photopolymer.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Pool Party Cardstock #122924

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953

  • cut at 2" x 1 1/2"

Watermelon Wonder Cardstock #138334

  • cut at 3" x 3 1/2"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 2 3/4" x 3 1/4"
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper #142770

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 5 /14"

I stamped the "Happy Birthday" in the colors of Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party and Watermelon Wonder.  I stamped the first one in Peekaboo Peach and then the Watermelon Wonder.  That way it is easier to center the one in Pool Party.  

To make the ice cream I first used the solid image stamp.  I put ink on it and then stamped it on a scrap piece of paper and then onto my whisper white paper.   This is called "stamping off".  Then I inked up the spiral stamp and stamped it directly onto the solid image I just stamped.  I popped both of the ice cream cones.  

For the inside of the card I stamped the ice cream cone and a sentiment from the stamp set.  You can also use the ice cream cone for your envelope.  

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!

School Bus Card

FullSizeRender (1)

Our daughter, Emily, started her first year of teaching this year so I wanted to make her a card congratulating her and to give her encouragement.  I wasn't sure how to make a bus card, so I went to Pinterest, Google, blogs and Facebook.  I found this card and decided this is the one I would make.  Now, a month later, I can't find it back.  I am not sure who designed this card, but I am very appreciative of them sharing.  If I find out, I will update this post to include their information.

You will need the following materials:

Daffodil Delight Card Stock #119683

cut at 6 1/2" x 8" score at 4"

  • scraps for four 1 3/4" circles

Basic Black Card Stock #121045

  • cut three 1" squares
  • cut three 1/8" x 6 1/4" strips
  • scraps for four 1 1/4" circles
  • scraps for four 1/2" circles

Basic Gray Card Stock #121044

  • scraps for four 3/4" circles

Real Red Card Stock #102482

  • scraps for 1 hexagon (I used a retired punch) 

Fold the yellow paper along the score line and measure the left hand top corner at 2" vertical and 1 3/4" horizontal.   Cut that section out and round the corners with the Project Life Corner Punch.  

To decorate the card I did it in the following order:

I used snail adhesive except for the stop sign I used a dimensional.  

  • adhere the black squares for the windows
  • adhere the black strips (for these I used our Multipurpose Liquid Glue)
  • sponge around the yellow circles with the Daffodil Delight ink
  • adhere the yellow circles on the front of the card first, we will be putting wheels on the back of the card also.  Then adhere the ones on the back lining them up with the front ones you have already adhered.  Cut both, the front and back, to line up with the bottom of the card.  Continue doing the front and then the back so everything lines up even.
  • adhere the 1 1/4" black circles
  • adhere the 3/4" gray circles
  • adhere the 1/2" black circles 
  • adhere the red hexagon

For the stop sign I used a white gel pen and drew on the lines and wrote the word STOP.  

You will notice by the size of the card, you will have to make your own envelope for this card.  I used our envelope punch board to make mine.  

This is a great card for a teacher, aide, bus driver or a student. 

Thank you for stopping by today and have a wonderful week!

Look Who's Turning 2


At the beginning of each month I try to make all of the my cards that I need for my family and friends for that month.  This month my niece's little girl and one of my daycare angels turn 2 and this is the card I made them.  Do you know what stamp set this little bear came from? It is from the Cookie Cutter Christmas!  It is so nice that you can use this stamp set for something different than just Christmas.  

To make this card you will need the following supplies:

Pink Pirouette Card Stock #111351

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" top layer
  • cut at 1 1/4" x 2 1/2"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" for the oval
  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4" inside the card
  • cut at 2 1/4" x 2 3/4" for the bear

I stamped the little bear in Crumb Cake ink and his nose and eyes in Early Espresso.  The Confetti embossing folder gave the pink layer texture.  

One thing nice about this card is you can just change the number for the  different ages of the little angels in your life.  

Did everyone have a wonderful holiday weekend?  We had a pretty good weekend even though Mark was sick from food poisoning and Erica's allergies were awful.  I got a lot done in my craft room for upcoming events.  I am excited to show you what I have been working on.  You will see them in the upcoming days and weeks.  

Thank you for stopping in today!

Do you remember the Dancing with Elmo that was popular in the 90's?  Erica was 1 or 2 and we got her one for her birthday that is in November.   We had no problem getting it and there were a lot on the shelves.  Then it came out that it was the most popular toy of the Christmas season and everybody wanted one.  Some people were even paying hundreds of dollars for them.  I wish we would have known because we would have picked up more.  LOL

When I went to make this card, it reminded me of that time.  One of my daycare angels, Alice, loves Sesame Street, especially Elmo.  I had some Elmo wrapping paper for her birthday gift so I had to make a card that matched it.

You will need the following products to make Elmo:

Real Red Card Stock #102482

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 4" x 5" this is for Elmo

Daffodil Delight Card Stock #119683

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Scraps of:

  • Basic Black card stock #121045
  • Pumpkin Pie card stock #105117
  • Whisper White card stock #100730

To make this card I went online and looked up images of Elmo and found this one.  I have had this template for at least 5 years, but I am sure it is on there somewhere.  You know they say, once on the internet, always on the internet.  I cut out the image that I had printed on copy paper and then I flipped it over so the the front was laying on the Real Red card stock.  I wanted to trace it this way so that if any of my pencil marks showed it wouldn't matter because it was on the back.  For the mouth I put a piece of black paper to cover the opening (this is a great way to use one of your scrap pieces).  

The eyes were made with a 1/14" circle punch and 1'2" circle punch was used for the black circles.  The nose was hand cut after I traced it onto Pumpkin Pie card stock (another great way to use up scraps). To trace the nose I put down a piece of pumpkin pie card stock, the template and then a piece of copy paper.  You can see the design through the copy paper and I used a pen to press hard so it made an imprint on the orange paper.  I used our paper snips from SU (which are the best scissors I have) to cut out the nose.  All of these are adhered with snail adhesive.

I used the Crazy About You stamp set for the Happy Birthday and punched it out using the new Classic Label Punch.  To get the black to frame it, I adhered it to the black and then cut around it.  

We have had a busy weekend around here.  We have had the Grand Randall's since Saturday morning and it has been a lot of fun.  I forgot how much work it is to take 3 kids places and how much you have to take with you.  I don't know how I would take 6-8 kids with me everyday to the pool.  One thing I know for sure I was a lot younger. LOL

Thank you for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Cinderella's Carriage



I am on a roll with the Disney cards this week!  I saw this one on Pinterest and fell in love.  Of course I did, it's Disney!  I went on Pinterest to get some ideas for cards to display at my Open House and came across this one.   I just went back to try and find it so I can give credit to the creative person who came up with this idea.  I definitely did not design this, but I definitely CASE'd it!  

The carriage is made out of Gold Glitter Paper using the Swirly Scribbles Framelits to cut them out.  Then I used a retired little punch to make the starts out of the Soft Sky Card Stock.  I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere them to the white paper.  At first they didn't want to stick, so I put a clear block (the ones we use with our clear and photopolymer stamps) on top of the for a minute or two and it worked perfect.  

To get the lines in the whisper White I used my Stampin' Up! trimmer, best one I have ever used, scoring blade.  I made the score lines at 1/4" and 1/2" from the edge of the paper.  

The birthday sentiment is from the Circle of Spring stamp set.  When I need a small, but not tiny, sentiment that is the first stamp set I go to.

Here are the measurements for this card:

Soft Sky Card Stock #131203

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • scrap for the stars

Whisper White Card stock #100730

  • cut 2 at  4" x 5 1/4"

Gold Glimmer Paper #133719

I also made one using the Emerald Envy Card Stock.  I like the both, not sure which one is my favorite.


Which one is your favorite?

It is Thursday and we are still in Texas with Emily.  No I am not working while on vacation, I scheduled these post to be put on my blog while I was gone.  I know some of you thought I was.  LOL

We are probably very hot as it is suppose to be in the upper 90's all week.  We are heading back on Saturday morning.  Please keep all of us in your prayers on Saturday, as it is going to be a very difficult.  I am tearing up already as I write this.  Nope, not just tearing up, I just had to take a break from writing this and have a mini meltdown.  I can remember all the emotions she is going through when I left my home town almost 30 years ago and now I am understanding what my mom went through.  IT STINKS!  I know she is right where God wants her to be and He has wonderful plans for her!  All of us are very at peace with her moving we are just going to miss her SOOOOOOOOO MUCH.  Thank God for texting, FaceTime, emails, instagram, Facebook and whatever else is out there.  

I hope everyone is having a good week!  Just think tomorrow is Friday!

Minnie Mouse!!!



We are Disney Fanatics in this household.  Mark and I have been there 7 times and the girls 6.  I am thinking we might be going back again soon.  Yay!  I have made all the daycare angels Disney crazy too!  You gotta have a little fun in life!  

The first thing I thought of when I saw the Swirly Bird stamp set and the Swirly Scribbles Framelits was Mickey and Minnie Mouse!!!  I love this card, it just makes me so happy!

To make this card, which is pretty easy and would make a great kids card, You only need one ink, 3 colors of paper, 2 of which are black and white, and some ribbon if you want it to be a Minnie card.  How easy is that!!!  Here are the measurements I used to make this card:

Basic Black Card Stock #121045

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 1/2" x 4"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

Brights Designer Series Pack #138434 - I used Real Red

  • cut at 2" x 4"

I think I used about 12-14 inches of the 5/8" Organza Ribbon for the bow.  

For the inside of the card I used the smallest and the next size up to make a little Minnie Mouse.  Here is a picture so you can see what I did 


Too Cute!!!!

Have a wonderful Tuesday!  

Happy Stampin!

My last card from my Kids Card Class.  I love punch art so this class was a lot of fun for me.  To design this card I looked on Pinterest for ideas and used a little from this card, a little from that card and a little of my own to come up with this card.  One thing I like about this card is it could be for a boy or girl.  Olaf  makes me happy just looking at him.  One of my little girls in my daycare saw this card and started singing "Do You Want to Build a Snowman".  She was so cute!  

This card is not a normal size.  I couldn't make him to fit on a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card, so I ended up with a card measuring 3 1/2" x 7 1/2".  We used the envelope punch board to make our envelope for this card.  

The measurements for this card are:

Whisper White Thick Card Stock #140272

  • cut at 7" x 7 1/2" score at 3 1/2" - I don't use my bone folder on the thick card stock as it usually looks rough on the edge.  I just use my fingers to crease it after I have scored it.  

Designer Series Paper Pack - Brights #138434

  •  cut at 3 1/4" x 7 1/4"

Other paper used:

  • Basic Black
  • Basic Gray
  • Early Espresso
  • Pumpkin Pie

Punches used:

I used the Gift Bow Bigz Die to make the head of Olaf.  You will use the piece that makes the loops of the bow.  You will round the piece you cut on each end to shape his head.  You will want to keep the end pieces that you cut off, so you can use one of those for his teeth.  You will need to round the corners of the little piece for the teeth.  

The Bird Builder Punch was used to make his arms.  You are going to punch out the branch using Early Espresso Card Stock.  I then used our Paper Snips Scissors to trim the leaves to look like branches.

Owl Punch for the eyes

7/8" x 1 3/4" Oval Punch for the mouth, punch one in white and basic gray

1/3" x 2" Oval Punch for the oval under his nose

1/2", 1 3/8", 1 1/2" Circle Punch for the body and buttons

I used the retired 3/4" x 15/16" Oval Punch, but you could use the 1" circle punch for the feet.   

I drew the nose free hand and then cut it out.  I used dimensionals on the back of Olaf to attach him to the card.  Also, on his mouth and the oval under his nose.  The white on his buttons was put on using the  chalk marker.  You can use any stamp set you would like on the inside of this card to make it a birthday, congratulations, get well, really anything you would like. 

If you have any questions on how to make this card, please feel free to contact me and I will help you..  It is really easy to assemble.  What takes time is the punching of all the pieces.  When I made this I made 4 of them at the same time.  That way I have extras on hand when I need them.  

Thank  you for stopping by today!

Happy Stampin!
