RemARKable Best of 25 Years Blog Tour

Hello and welcome to the latest RemARKable Blog Tour!  I just love seeing all of the fabulous ideas these ladies come up with each month, don't you?  This month we will be featuring the Best of Shelli stamp set. 

Best of Shelli
#133488  $14.95  Clear Mount Only
My little great-niece celebrated her first birthday this weekend, so I had the perfect opportunity to play with some brand new products when I made her card. 

I used the stacked presents stamp from the Best of Shelli Stamp Set for the front of the card.  I colored the gifts with Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, and Summer Starfruit Stampin' Write Markers.  I chose these colors to coordinate with the Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper. 

This card was made with the new Circle Card Thinlits.  I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these new dies.  Before, it used to take a long time, multiple measurements, and positioning the top cutting plate in just the right place in order to get a card that moves like this.  No more --- now it is easy peasy to make this fun fold card.  Plus, it comes with lots of extras that you can use to make fun projects.  (I will include the You Tube video at the end of this post so you can see how quick and easy it is to use these dies!)

I also used my new Envelope Liners Framelits Dies to line the envelope with some of the Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper.  It really gives a nice, coordinated look to the envelope, doesn't it?

The Envelope Liners Framelits Dies are in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  Here is what they look like:

Of course, I had to put some "bling" on this card because every girl (even one-year-olds!) love a little "bling!"  I used our Silver Glimmer Paper to cut out the "1" and the Modern Label Punch.  It gives just the right amount of shimmer and shine.

The "yay" and the Scallop Circle was part of the Circle Card Thinlits Dies.  You get lots of little extras with the Circle Card Thinlits Dies!

Now, it is time to see what Melissa Bollinger has created!

Here is the You Tube video Stampin' Up! made showing how easy it is to use the new Thinlits Dies!

Isn't my great-niece just the cutest baby?  Here she is all ready to eat her cake.  My niece stripped her down to her onesie and a bib since she loves to eat and she was sure the cake would be a hit!  Well........

NOT SO MUCH!  She was not a fan of getting dirty to eat her cake.  She is a little lady and prefers to use a spoon.
We only let her cry long enough to get a photo for her baby book, then Daddy fed her some of her
delicious cake while Mommy held her.
