I had a friend text me on Sunday that she needed a romantic, sophisticated wedding card using the Tiffany blue color.  Well, this is my first attempt.  What do you think?  In real life, it’s really sparkly and pretty.  I’m not sure if it’s romantic or sophisticated.  Please leave me a comment at the top of this blog post.

Because my Stampin’ Up! order doesn’t arrive until tomorrow, I had to use some retired products.  The ribbon and the banner framelit have retired.  Everything else is current. The “congrats!” is from the Happy Happenings set.  You should get that one if you don’t already have it.  I used Pool Party ink, Versamark and clear embossing powder on the sentiment.  I always think anything embossed looks fancier.  The Bloomin’ Heart framelit is amazing and so easy to use with the Precision Base Plate.  I used my Pool Party marker to tint the Rhinestones.  The embossing folder is called Elegant Dots.

Punchy Flower card!

StampinUp quick and easy 3x3 flower punch card created by demo Beth McCullough. Please see more card and gift ideas at #StampingMom

I’ve been MIA for a few days because after Sean left Wednesday evening, I spent all the time I could with Abby on Thursday and Friday.  We shopped, packed, crafted and went to lunch.  Superman and I made her favorite last couple meals including Cauliflower stir fried “rice” with beef and broccoli, Cayman eggs and homemade hamburger pizza.  Abby also got all her laundry done and cleaned up her room.  I didn’t realize it could be that clean and organized.  Now that I know it’s possible…

On  Saturday Abby took the SAT college entrance exam and then Superman and I spent ten hours driving Abby to camp, helping her get settled, taking  Ryan and Abby out for dinner and then one last trip to Walmart for extension cords, trash can etc. and then the long trip home.  It was hard to leave Abby there to be a camp counselor this summer.  My other kids have never been gone for the summer at such a young age.

The three of us remaining at home (Superman, Keegan and I) will be up visiting our two middle kids in Okoboji soon.  It will be quite an adjustment for Keegan to have to absorb all the parenting and advice Superman and I still feel the need to impart.  He’s never been our only kid at home.

Anyway I need a bunch of cute and easy cards to send encouragement to my kids while they’re serving the Lord at camp.  Use Your Stuff has a great color challenge this week.  Please stop by and play along.

I used Stampin’ Up retired colors Green Galore and Orchid Opulance and current color Bermuda Bay.  The two outer flowers are punched with the Flower Medallion punch.  I also used the Pansy punch and Petite Petals for the smaller flowers.  Quick and easy, but Abby will love it!

I have so much more I want to tell you, but Superman is waiting for me to watch a movie with him.  Please subscribe to my blog and I’ll be back with more stamping ideas and a few more stories of our crazy life.

Hope you have a great day!


Beth 🙂
