Take Two Tuesday! Bella style.

Seems I am finally getting back on track--Monday Mailer and Take Two Tuesday!  Yippee...I am so proud of myself, lol.

It has been a couple of weeks so I will answer that question--what is Take Two Tuesday? Each Tuesday I randomly--kinda 😏-- pick an older card from my stash to re-create using new products and ideas.  I have to admit that sometimes I like the old card better than the re-creation--but sometimes not!  At the end I always ask for your thoughts about which one you like best.  Kind of fun.

So here we go .....

My first picture is both cards together....

I actually think both cards are cute this week.  I didn't really think about the fact that the original card is a non Stampin Up image.  The paper is Stampin Up though.  I think that little dog came from a dollar bin at JoAnn's if my memory serves me correctly.  I thought that all of the little piece made the card adorable.  And the dog image too so I decided to stay with the dog theme and use Bella from Bella and Friends  Isn't she cute as can be????

I see now in the picture that maybe the words thank you should have been down a bit lower--I may have to change that after posting.   Other than that I think it turned out pretty cute.  The papers are from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Love the fun colors!

So here is the weekly question...

Here are the supplies used on the new card ....

Using the newest Paper Pumpkin to create a few Make it and Mail it cards for today!

I had fun playing around with this month's paper pumpkin kit.  I did not make the projects that they designed for us--I always have to be different, lol.  So I made my own designs.  I actually have six made so far but I am only going to share the two that are getting mailed out today for my Monday Mailer.  I will show you the rest another day--maybe Wednesday??!!

So the first card is for a friend's birthday.  It is not someone that I normally send birthday cards to but this is a milestone one so I thought it would be a nice surprise!

How fun are those cakes?  It is fun to play around with these kits because everything you need is included except for a block and I added a black marker and ink pad.  Just because--everyone has that.  I did not want to add anything else though so that my Paper Pumpkin customers can re-create these cards I made without having lots of other supplies.  So I hope my friend who is turning 50 likes this card.

Here is one more card from the kit that I made for a friend of my son's who jut graduated!  So proud of him.  One more year for my son--he should have been graduating with this group but I held him back in second grade--so one more year.  Anyway, here is the card I am sending to him.

I thought I would show you the cards that were supposed to be made with the kit--because they are pretty awesome too.

Here are the supplies used....you can join the Paper Pumpkin kit club anytime and pick and chose the months you want to get!  If you don't want it next month just let them know.  Then start again the following month!  I love the surprise each month so I NEVER say no!

May your glass always be half full....

I love this.  I am one of those people who always likes to find the best in things and also always try to understand both sides of any issue but keep up beat as much as possible.  That is one of the reasons I love this stamp set so much.  Ad of course I love wine too--so that helps! 😁

Today's card uses the same set as my last post but in a little different way.  I mixed the wine glass  with some of the new Share What You Love Specialty paper..which by the way is amazing paper.  My favorite ever!  Thick and stunning.

Isn't this a fun card?  I love the mix.  I used  an older I spy sketch for the layout.  I love sketch challenges and have not had much time to play along with them lately.  But I do pin the ones I love and look back--when I remember!  😉

Here are the supplies used on this card--in case you want to recreate it yourself.

A card for my wine business partners....

Just making up some cards for my friends and team mates in my wine  business!  This card is specifically for a friend who joined the club but not my team (yet).  The cool thing is  if you join the club and get two friends to join your wine is FREE!  Sounds crazy, but it it is true.  This friend is a red wine lover so she chose to have all reds delivered to her home each month! You can get half and half or all white or all red.

Anyway, back to the card.  I had  so much fun coloring these images with my stampin  blends.  I just love these fun markers.  So worth every penny!  I love that there are so many new colors in this catalog!

Don't you think this is a fun card?  Couldn't be much easier (unless  that was designer paper--that would be crazy easy)

I hope my  friend enjoys it.  Want to make it yourself?  Here are the supplies used.  Product List
