Heartfelt Sympathy

It is always a sad time when love ones pass away. 

Close as a Memory is a beautiful stamp set to use to create heartfelt cards.

Add some texture with the new Stampin' Up! background I textured plates

I also added a little dimension to this card using the paper-piercing tool and pad from my Crafters' Tool Kit along the edge of the inner piece of cardstock.

Get Well Face card

Here is a cute get well card that is sure to brighten some ones day.

To create this face you will need the Pick A Petal stamp set, it is not just for creating flowers, and a brand new pencil eraser for the small dot in the eyes.

For the base of my card I used a stamp from the Itty Bitty Backgrounds stamp set. The get well soon words are from the Sincere Salutations stamp set.

Large Cupcake Card

What a  YUMMY Card. This large cupcake looks good enough to eat. 

I stamped the Simple Birthday Thanks stamp on both Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip card stock. 

Cut around the line. 

Textured the bottom of the cupcake using my paper crimper

For this sparkling cherry, I first colored in the cherry with the Real Red Stampin' Write marker, then covered it with Two Way glue and the red glitter from the Fine Galaxy Stampin' Glitter.

 I attached it to my card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Good Friend tote

A while back I had recreated the tote box made at Leadership.
If you don't all ready own the Scallop circle punch it is definitely one to add to your wish list. I used it to create leaves in the trees and a nest, folding it over.
I didn't have some of the supplies needed, so I improvised. 

I made my own Designer Paper for the sides using the adorable stamps in the Good Friend stamp set.

Happy Easter

Wishing every one a HAPPY EASTER!
Rejoice in the season.

This is my Easter card I sent to friends and family. Since the outside said you crack me up, I decide to put a different knock, knock joke into each card.

Here is one of my favorites.

Knock, knock!
Who's there?
Heidi who?
Heidi the eggs around the house.

Happy Birthday Mom

Here is a beautiful Spring card.

This card is on its way to my mother. It is her Birthday today. Her favorite color is purple, so I used
Pale Plum and Perfect Plum card stock.

The tulip bulb is created with the
wide oval and oval punches.

You could substitute Happy Easter instead of Happy Birthday.

I want to thank Marcia for inspiring me.

Easter envelope basket

A cute Basket made from an envelope, yes I said envelope. 

Lick it shut then using the Tag punch, punch away some to create a handle.

Use your punches to create an adorable bunny for the front.

I would love to say this was my idea but it was actually a swap shared at leadership. 
I do not know who the original creator was.  
But I totally LOvE it!

You crack me up!

Here is a cute Easter card.

Inspired by a few others who had created cards that opened.

I stamped the images from A Good Egg stamp set.

Even including some words when the egg is opened. 

I used the beautiful Pink Flamingo Designer Series Paper to dress up this egg.

Ears wishing you a 
happy day.

To make this carrot you will need the  Stampin' Up! Pennant bigz xl die. The back piece is cut slightly smaller than the front, allowing it to lay flat.

Thank you to my good friend, Fairle, for sharing this adorable carrot project.

I changed mine just a little. I wanted to stamp on this cute bunny from the Animal Crackers stamp set.
