This card was inspired by the birthday coming up at our house. I thought it would be perfect for my boys to give to their dad. I like the sentiment from the Suite Sayings set with the tie-dyed shirt. I bought the Custom Tee set exactly for cards that can be difficult to make like teen cards and masculine cards.

The Tie-Dyed stamp set is perfect to use with the Custom Tee stamp set and both of them are retiring. In fact, right now it is better to purchase the Custom Tee set and the coordinating T-Shirt Builder Framelits separately because they are both on sale before they retire. 

The background is done with a splotch stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge set and the stars sponged on with the stars decorative mask and a sponge. I like the pop of the Tangerine Tango stars and sentiment on this card. You can find another Custom Tee card on my Facebook Page today.

Have you ever tried making a card with a unique fold? The Z-Fold card is the perfect card to start with because it is so easy!! Combine the fun Z-Fold card and the Carousel Birthday set, and you have a party. This card feels like you are heading to a circus, well definitely a celebration.

Scroll down to see a video tutorial on how to make this card.

How to make a Z-Fold card with the Carousel Birthday Set by Stampin' Up!. Find supplies at www.shopwithmystamplady.com
The video tutorial below walks you through this card, but the folding is only two measurements. Fold the 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock in half at 5 1/2″ and then score the card front 2 1/2″ over and then fold the front back on itself. That’s it! Then embellish and decorate the card as you wish. I added the 3 3/4″ X 3 3/4″ flap to the front for my focal image.

Don’t miss all the great products that I used here that will be retiring on May 31st. Many of them are currently on sale. Scroll down to find the links to the supplies in my online store.

It’s graduation time, and I have several cards to make for graduates from different schools. It is so awesome that when you make your cards, you can personalize your graduation cards with the specific school cards. I love using the Large Number dies for adding the class year to a graduation card. I will be giving this card to my nephew.

Stampin' Up!'s Number Of Years Graduation Card. Find supplies www.shopwithmystamplady.com

I used the Lucky Stars (retiring) embossing folder to add the raised stars to the Basic Black and the Stars Framelits (retiring) to cut out the Silver Glimmer stars. Stars work so well for graduation cards, so I am glad I have the Stars Framelits. It is nice to have the different sized stars to work together. To make your graduation cards quickly, use the same layout and change the colors. You can always design each card specifically for each graduate if you have more time. You can find all the links for the products I used listed below.

I love the 3-dimensional boxes that you can cut with the Big Shot, but sometimes I wish you could do more with the dies. The Window Box Thinlits Dies is one collection that works great for a 3-D box and you can use the dies in your cardmaking. I also like that the assembled box is not too small.

Scroll down to see a video tutorial on how to make this card.

Window Box Thinlits Dies With Eastern Beauty stamp set and Mini Tassels Stampin' Up! Shop at www.shopwithmystamplady.com

I combined the Window Box Thinlits with products available in the Special Eastern Palace Bundles right now. I love the laser cut look you get with the large detailed die included in the Thinlit set. It is easy to highlight the design with a piece of cardstock because the way the die cuts out the design. This is a simple card that looks very elegant.

Be sure to watch the video tutorial to see additional ideas for using the Window Box Thinlits to make cards.

I love products that can multitask. The Birthday Blast stamp set and the Star Blast Framelits work very well for celebrating birthdays but they are also perfect for other celebrations. My first card is great for a child’s birthday and then scroll down to see how else I used the stamps and Framelits.   The greatest thing about the stamp and Framelits is that they are marked way down. So do not buy the bundle, but purchase the stamp set and Framelits individually.

What child, or adult for that matter, doesn’t like a little sparkle and glitz? I used the Silver glimmer paper to cut out the number and some of the stars to fit into the star blast die-cut. Kids also seem to really like to see the birthday number on cards, but we can probably agree that most adults are fine with skipping the birthday number on a card.

I used bright colors perfect for a child’s birthday celebration. You can also cut out a few more of the Star Blast shapes and decorate the gift for spectacular coordination.

The Birthday Blast set can be used for occasions other than birthdays. I sent this card to one of my downline that promoted to the Silver level.

I live near Lake Superior, which can feel like a seashore, but we don’t have all the unique fish and shells like you can find in the Seaside Shore stamp set. I love this stamp set and the coordinating By The Shore patterned paper, paper is retiring May 31st, work together to make gorgeous projects.

Scroll down to see a video tutorial on how to make this card.

Masking with Seaside Shore and By The Shore paper from Stampin' Up!. Find supplies from www.shopwithmystamplady.com

I decided to mask the fish to create depth on the card front because I didn’t want to fussy cut the fish. Masking is so easy once you have your masks made. Make your masks once with Post-It Note paper or masking paper and then use them again and again until they wear out. I just keep my masks in with the stamp set so they are ready to go the next time I pull out the set.

The anchor is stamped off on scrap paper to make it lighter behind the sentiment. The softer image adds nicely to the circle cut with the Stitched Shape Oval.

I like the Custom Tee and T-Shirt Builder Framelits because you can make fun unique cards for teens, boys, and anybody that enjoys a fun card. This is one time you do not want to purchase the bundle because the stamp set and Framelits are marked way down.

Stampin' Up! Custom Tee and T-Shirt Builder. Find supplies at www.shopwithmystamplady.com

I used the retiring In Colors for this set of 3″ X 3″ gift cards. I backed each card with a piece In Color cardstock and the corresponding paper from the retiring 2015-2017 Designer Series Paper Stack. I used Watermelon Wonder and Tip Top Taupe to create this little card. It is a feminine card with the T-Shirt cut from patterned paper.

For this boy’s birthday card, I used Tip Top Taupe, Delightful Dijon, and Real Red. The sports jersey is perfect for a boy’s birthday. In fact, making cards for teens and boys is what attracted me to this set.

The last card is created with Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, and Delightful Dijon. The set includes the fun little sayings to stamp on the t-shirts so you can create projects for so many different people and occasions.

I had so much fun creating these little 3″ X 3″ gift cards and using up some of my retiring In Color paper. I will be back later this week with a couple of full-size t-shirt cards.
