Happy Birthday Gorgeous Card by Ginny! Let me show you some simple stamping you can do in minutes.

Hello everybody! This is Ginny Stewart, Connie’s daughter, here for my last blog post while she is on vacation. But we don’t have time to be sad because we have a fabulous happy birthday card to create today! Sometimes the best cards appear when the idea in your head is COMPLETELY different than what is created. This card was created when I was trying to make my Watermelon card that I showed you on Thursday (As you can see very similar color pallets). When I was searching for a watermelon stamp I came across the Beautiful You Stamp Set and I fell in LOVE! I thought the women in the set were so cute and vintage and if you thought my mom liked the vintage style, you should see my closet! I also loved the sentiments in this set because what girl doesn’t want to feel gorgeous on their birthday? I’m actually giving this card to my sister for her birthday so lets hope she doesn’t read this post before then!

Hello everybody! Today I’m going to show you how to make the sweetest watermelon greeting card!

For those of you who don’t know, I am Ginny Stewart, Connie’s daughter, and I am taking over her blog while she is away on her Stampin’ Up! cruise. As some of you may know I have been working for my mom as her personal assistant. Well, one day as I was cleaning her stamp room I was putting away a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock and I was determined to make a watermelon card. I didn’t know what I was going to use or what it was going to look like, all I knew was I will create the cutest watermelon greeting card on the entire planet, and I think I accomplished my goal!

This watermelon greeting card is perfect as a birthday card, thank you card, or friendship card.

 Let’s get started with this Sweetest Watermelon Greeting Card!

Today I’ve got some ADORABLE little love notes to share with kids! It’s the perfect Tuesday tip video for Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Youth Ministers….anyone who has kids in their life –so all of us!

Hello everybody! This is Ginny Stewart, Connie’s favorite daughter. This week I am going to be taking over my mom’s blog while she is on her Stampin’ Up Greek Isles cruise because I wanted her to be completely stress-free on her vacation.

For this week’s Tuesday Tip I’m showing you some amazing ways to brighten your child, grandchild, or any other loved ones day! Over my years, my mom would always sneak cards into my backpack or lunchbox to surprise me throughout the school day. Some would be for holidays, like Valentine’s Day, some would be encouragement cards to support me in an event at school, and some would just be random notes to say “I love you.” No matter what the occasion was these love notes would always brighten my day, no matter what hardships I had encountered that day.  

While some may think when your kids or grandkids get older (especially Junior High and High School) that they won’t want to receive love notes and cards like this because they are “too cool for school” but I can assure you that your kids will love it. Even as a senior in High School, when I would receive a card from my Mom I would show my friends and say, “Look at how cool my mom is”! Many times my friends would be jealous that their parents weren’t as cool as mine. The best part about doing this is that it is super easy!

Adorable love note cards you can make for the kids in your life you want to encourage.

The Blueberry card you see in the pictures my mom made me for my first day of senior year, and she made it out of a Paper Pumpkin Set (one of the best ways to create a gorgeous card for any loved ones). Another great option if you don’t have the time to create a full card is, you guessed it, Flash Cards! A quick sentiment, a fun stamp, a sweet note, all adhered on a gorgeous piece of cardstock, it’s a piece of cake! Ooh now I want cake… But seriously guys, Flash Cards are the best way to spread the love! They take minutes to make, they are guaranteed to bring a smile to anyone’s face, and they are small enough that they can be hidden well for the ultimate surprise. I have a list below of some of my favorite places where I think you could hide these cards for your kids, grandkids, and other loved ones!

  • Backpack – use different pockets
  • Lunch box or bag
  • Attach it to a snack cake or fun sized candy bar (my favorite!)
  • Sneak it in a text book
  • Tuck it in their notebook or folder
  • What about hiding it in their jeans pocket the night before?
  • Slip one in her purse
  • Put it in the cup holder of their car 
  • In a care package being sent to the homesick college student
  • On a coworkers computer or desk (Everyone needs some encouragement sometimes)

Which of these love notes is your favorite? Would you make these for the kids in your life? Let me know in the comments below!

 

Whether you make these love notes to be A2 size or with the flash card method they are cute and well received greeting cards!

The handmade cards were awesome and I loved them but the little Flash Cards were fun too.

  • Colored Cardstock – 2 ¾” x 4 ¼” 
  • Whisper White or Very Vanilla Cardstock – 2 ½” x 4″

The Flash cards were quick and easy and Mom could tuck them in different places for me to find.

I promised to share the video links of a couple of the cards that my Mom made too. 

  • Heart Card – CLICK HERE
  • Hedgehog Card – It’s not the actual card but very similar – CLICK HERE

While Mom is away, she said that all commission from this week’s sales will go to help me build up my college fund. YAY! So if you have a wish list of products you have been putting off buying, now would be an amazing time to purchase it and I would greatly appreciate it!

QUOTE OF THE DAY – “You know that place between sleep and awake, that place where you still remember dreaming? That’s where I’ll always love you. That’s where I’ll be waiting.” – Peter Pan, Hook

“Ohana means family, and family means no body gets left behind or forgotten.” – Stitch, Lilo and Stitch

“I would rather die tomorrow than spend a hundred years without knowing you.” – John Smith, Pocahontas 

I couldn’t decide between these three quotes because they all have such amazing messages about love and family so I thought why not put all three (these would also be good messages to add to your loves notes flashcards). Thank you all so much for joining me today I appreciate it so much! I am so excited to see you all again on Thursday so I can show you guys this SUPER cute card that I created! I hope you all have an absolutely fantastic day and I’ll see you soon!

I want to show you the easy handmade cards I created in today’s video. Can you see how beautiful those gold sheet strips are. WOW a little goes a long way! Great card making ideas!

Here is my simple version

but if you want to step it up just a tad, add a simple knot of Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon. Look how it ties in that Gold Foil Sheet strip!

Here I just flipped over the Designer Series Paper and used the pattern on the opposite side. How is that for a simple card design?

You can create 10 of each card with just one sheet of the Designer Paper. Pretty cool, am I right?
