Petite Petals Birthday

Petite Petals, Stampin' Up!

Mike & I are in Virginia Beach for a conference, so this will be a quickie.  (The card and post!)  We got here a little after 1 a.m.  Everything seems to happen at the last minute when you’re trying to get out of town.  Our plan was to leave at 1 or 2 in the afternoon, but that certainly didn’t happen.  It was closer to 8 p.m.

I have been having a lot of trouble with my phone.  I think it’s because I haven’t updated, but I have so many Amelia pictures that I need to sync to my computer, I don’t have enough memory.  Anyway – it’s not ringing about 3/4 of the time.  I set the alarm last night for 8:30 this morning, and I was so mad because it didn’t go off.  Stupid phone.  Then I double checked, and realized I had set it for 8:30 p.m.  Oops.  Sleepy Buffy!  (Note:  Just got back from a “mobile tricks and gadgets” seminar, and the presenter said to wait a couple more weeks before you update to ios 8.  There are lots of bugs, and bugs with bugs.  I think they’re working on 8.3 right now.  Maybe 8.5.)

This is just a really cute but quick and easy all-occasion card.  If you wanted to make it for a man, use linen thread or frayed burlap, change the colors a little and use the Wetlands or maybe the Traveler set.  I used Petite Petals set with the coordinating punch.  You can easily cut 1″ squares with your stampin’ trimmer, but I used the 1″ square punch.  If you’re using an image that’s a little larger and you don’t want to cut it out, you can punch the image with the 1″ square punch, then layer to a punched postage stamp.

I finished it off with a little Bermuda Bay 1/8″ taffeta ribbon.  If you’re like me and forget to cut your paper at 4-1/4″ x 11″ (so the ribbon will easily wrap the front of the card), you can use the 1/8″ handheld circle punch to punch a very small hole at the fold.  The ribbon will slip right through, and no one will notice the punched area.

Hope you’re having a wonderful day!  Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.

  1. Hi, Buffy. Nice postcard. I have been reading your blog lately and have found many beautiful handmade things. I have not even looked through the Pinterest stamping thread all this time. You mention that you attended a seminar on mobile tricks and gadgets. Do you work in mobile industry? Because I do. I write blog posts for mobile app developers. It is always nice to meet a colleague. I am looking forward to your new posts.

      Hi! Thanks for your comment. The seminar was about using mobile gadgets for business. I think this was from several years ago, so I can’t remember all the things we learned (which are all probably obsolete by now!). I will definitely check out your blog!
