Biker Dad's

Both my father and my husband's father own Harley's and love to ride. I bought this stamp set last year because I knew I could get a lot of use out of it! This year, I wanted to make Father Day cards with them and decided to go a bit rustic.

This card uses Soft Suede and Early Espresso cardstock along with the Newsprint DSP. I roughed up the edges, used some vintage brads and "VOILA"

We are celebrating Father's Day a bit early this year because we are heading to Florida next week for a nice vacation. I can't wait!

If you need to know about any more Stampin' Up products, take a look at the online store.

Retired Birthday Butterflies

I AM SO EXCITED! So today is June 1st... yes I know...stating the obvious...but for a Stampin' Up demonstrator today is almost like Christmas!

On June 1st, the Stampin' Up retired stamp & accessory lists become available to everyone, but for Stampin' up demonstrators, we get to peek at some of the stuff that will be in the new catalogue as of July 1st! I've been drooling over some of the stuff! I just have to say, it's going to be fantastic!

Here is a card I created a while ago for a certain someones birthday coming up. She knows how much I love butterflies. The product on this card is mostly retired, but I love to show it anyways. Lately I have lost my inspiration to create new cards, so this one is CASE'd as well, but I did change it up a bit.

Colors used are Kiwi Kiss, Bermuda Bay, Bashful Blue and Night of Navy. The ribbon on this card will be retiring come June 30th.
