Number of Years

Number of Years 50th Card Sharp

It's been a little while since I've been able to spend time in my Stampin' Room (explanation at end of post), but I did want to make a special card for my sister who celebrated her 50th Birthday last month. The new Number of Years Stamp Set and coordinating Large Numbers Framelits Dies were perfect for this occasion!! With no time for creating, I looked to Pinterest and my fellow demonstrators for something awesome to CASE (Copy and Share Everything!) I saw this card design created by B.J. Peters, loved the layout and colors, so I made just a couple simple changes and voilà! A fun 50th Birthday Card!!

The coordinating stamp set and framelits can be found in the Occasions Catalog on page 11. Even better, you can purchase them in a discounted bundle or separately!

Also LOVE the sentiments that come in this set! Here's the inside of my card...

Number of Years 50th Card 006

The fun It's My Party Designer Series Paper Stack is another new item in the Occasions Catalog (pg. 5). I love the colors and patterns in this stack of 48 sheets of double-sided designs!! Also check out the new Balloon Bouquet Punch (pg. 13).

Sorry for the somewhat blurry photos. My edited images look great, but when I add them to the blog post they're turning fuzzy :-/ Click on the image for a close-up view.

To my subscribers...So sorry my regular posts have gradually diminished over the past few months. Between fighting a very persistent case of bronchitis (which still isn't gone!), the holidays, renovating our lake house, and now caring for my grandson 4-5 days a week thru April, there simply hasn't been time for stamping. With the exception of the bronchitis, I love doing all of those things almost as much as I love stamping. Wish there were 5 of me : ) Please know that I still check my emails and blog comments regularly and do my best to respond within 24 hours. I will also continue to share new Stampin' Up! information as it is made available and new project ideas when I am able.

Thanks so much for your understanding

Join me for a Shoe Box Swap!

Image result for Shoe Box

What is a Shoe Box Swap?

Design a card and pre-cut all the supplies for the other guests (maximum of 8) to make your card. Bring it to the event in a Shoe Box (or any box). The box will be passed from person to person so each guest can create your card design. If 8 people sign up, you will leave with 8 different handmade cards (your sample + 7 designed by the other guests)!

Need design ideas? Check out Pinterest and just type the name of the stamp set you're using in the search box. You'll find a lot of inspiration there! Or you can even copy a card design you like.

DATE: Thursday, February 18th

TIME:  7:00 pm

PLACE: My Home - 16333 Barton Street, Overland Park, KS

RSVP:   Email me by no later than Thursday, February 11th!  
                                                    Space will be limited to 8!

Once I receive your RSVP, you can expect an email from me on Friday, February 12th, with the total number of guests to prepare supplies for.


  • Your finished card sample as an example for guests to follow.
  • All pre-cut supplies for each guest to make your card.
  • All inks, embellishments, dies, punches needed to create your card.
  • An envelope to go with your card, enough for all guests.
  • Your favorite adhesive (SNAIL, Liquid Glue, etc.)

     *Be sure to label each of your supplies (stamps, ink pads, tools, etc.)
       with your name so you are sure to leave with your own supplies!


Card bases (already cut & scored) must be made from Stampin’ Up! card stock. I will have my Big Shot available, but please bring any dies/embossing folders needed to create your card.

Cards can be simple one layer designs or layered, but should be your best work, meaning something that you would appreciate receiving in a swap or sending to your family & friends.

Cards must use a Stampin’ Up! stamp/stamp set for the sentiment. Preferably a current stamp, but retired Stampin’ Up! is okay too.

Your “shoe box” does not have to be an actual shoe box. Any small container that will hold all your card supplies is fine.

Pre-cut supplies do not have to be packaged separately for each guest, but do place each stack of pre-cut layers in a separate plastic bag to keep them organized and easy to find in your box.

Double check that you have ALL of your card supplies, tools, & accessories prior to coming!

Bottled Water, Coffee and a Snack will be provided.
