Happy Wishes Stamp Set Card

Make Your Own Stamp Pad

Make Your Own Stamp Pad With A Baby Wipe For this technique, you need a pack of baby wipes and reinkers in Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Rich Razzleberry.  Simply fold one baby wipe over so there are several layers.  Make stripes of the three colors with the reinkers right next to each other on the wipe.  You are going to use this as your stamp pad.  Ink up the large "Happy" sentiment and stamp on whisper white card stock.  Cut it out with the Lots of Labels Framelit. Simply mount the layers on the card as shown in the picture with Stampin' dimensionals. Very little work but a lot of impact!

Amazing Moms

Mother's Day is one of those holidays that has become so commercialized people have really forgotten what is about. One of the best ways to show mom that you really care is to take the time to do something special with her. Flowers are always nice but moms really appreciate the time you spend with them. Make a memory. Give it a try and make her a handmade card! You don't have to be an artist. Let's just take the time to make her feel special.

At times, it can seem like there are really limited options out there for making a masculine looking card. Stampin' UP has done a great job by creating this bundle of products to do just that. Appropriately named the Nailed It Bundle, this stamp set and coordinating framelits make this task simple. Pair it with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder and you have a great looking card with minimal effort. But no one else will guess that!
