Birthday Bash Stamp a Stack!!!!

I will be holding my August Stamp a Stack on the 25th at my good friend Valerie's house! We are making 5 different birthday cards: 2 each or 4 each. We created a birthday card for everyone: general, male, female, boy, and girl. I will be holding a make up stamp a stack on September 11th and 13th at my home for anyone that can not make it on the 25th. RSVP now because space is limited.

Our hopes with the stamp a stacks is for you to stock up on cards to eliminate having to run to the "store" (scary to us stampers) and get a so so card. You can now have a stack of handmade cards to give. Stay tuned to find out about next months stamp a stack!

Now on to the cards:

The boy card uses the set Ahoy Matey and Map Jumbo Wheel. The card design is a diorama and a blast to create. Colors used were Real Red, Brocade Blue, and Very Vanilla.

Unfrogettable was used for the girl card. This card idea was borrowed from a fellow Splitcoast stamper. Colors used were Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss, Pretty in Pink, and Regal Rose.

The female card used the set Polka Dots and Petals. The new In Color: Groovy Guava was used (it is growing on me), as well as Certainly Celery, and Close to Cocoa.

Polka Dots and Petals was used in a different way to create our General Card. We used this fun whale from the Silly Sealife set with the new In colors Soft Sky and Blue Bayou. Another idea borrowed form splitcoast.

The final card is our manly card. It does not have a lot of stamping on it, just punching. We used the 3/4” circle punch to punch out Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie, Close to Cocoa, and Bashful Blue circles. A simple yet fun card to make. This card was also inspired by a splitcoast stamper.

What does your pizza say about you?

I wouldn't normally post these but omg..this is too funny. I actually laughed out loud when I read this because so much of it describes me to a T! Now the part you get to figure out is which ones?? LOL

What Your Pizza Reveals

People may tell you that you have a small appetite... but you aren't under eating. You just aren't a pig.

You are a very picky pizza eater. Not any pizza will do. You fit in best in the Northeast part of the US.

You like food that's traditional and well crafted. You aren't impressed with "gourmet" foods.

You are generous, outgoing, and considerate with your choices.

You are unadventurous and boring. You should consider staying home when taking a vacation.

The stereotype that best fits you is geek. You're the type most likely to order pizza to avoid leaving your computer.

Update and a few cards

Well things have been busy around here with an almost 3 year old. He keeps me on my toes. I have been stamping so check out my splitcoast gallery for some fun no layer card examples. I am having my second stamp a stack on August 25th. We will be doing birthday cards!! Keep checking the blog for samples and more information. Now for the goods...here are some of my latest creations. Some ideas may have been borrowed from fellow splitcoasters. Thank you!

This fun card I did with the neighborhood wheel and Tree for all Seasons. I think I have found a new favorite color with Mellow Moss and Barely Banana.

My first diorama card! Thank you Valerie for the help and inspiration. I had a ton of fun stamping this one.

This wheel rocks! I am loving the Neighborhood jumbo wheel! The road is just black paper with a white gel pen. Colors are bordering blue, ballet blue, chocolate chip (my fav) and river rock. A very FUN CARD to make.

Finally I end with a cute Thanksgiving Card using Carved and Candlelit and Baroque Motifs. Colors are Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Very Vanilla.
