Happy 2014

2014_09_02IMG_4905 Today’s post is a late graduation card that my son got from my sister (his aunt) Blair.  As always we like to post things that Blair makes because she is part of the 3sisters2stamp team but she does not contribute too often but when she does it is cute.  You are not seeing things the “1” is really a $100 bill so that made the graduate really really happy!

Blair had a goal to make 14 cards in 2014 and think she is well on her way to making the goal since she had a lot of grads this year!  I am not sure of the exact # she has made but when she makes her goal I will post it!

So Sweet Work of Art

2014_08_31IMG_4911

Here I go again putting my Work of Art #134114 stamp set to work. As a tribute to the end of summer and my favorite fruit I made a yummy thank you card.  For the watermelon seeds, I used the heart from the Bitty Banner stamp set.

TBDBITL

2014_08_30IMG_4932 The Ohio State University Marching Band is truly THE BEST DAMN BAND IN THE LAND and today’s post is the card I made my son’s friend, Jacob for making the TBDBITL in the X row (trumpets). Jacob worked hard all summer practicing until he was perfect and selected as one of the 225 marching Buckeyes.  Bravo Jacob!

To make this card, I repurposed a card that I received from a friend and added Stampin Up cardstock and the TBDBITL letters cut from the Little Letters Thinlits #133730 and a handcut bravo flag using the A Dozen Thoughts #131059 stampset. 

Hopefully the OSU Buckeyes and the TBDBITL have a great year!

Fresh Prints Gate Fold

2014_08_29IMG_3643 Today’s post is a 2fer card.  Same design 2 looks.  For this card, I used the now retired Fresh Prints paper stack for both panels on both cards.  The gatefold card was created using the Stampin Up envelope punch board #133774. I added a black flower by stacking several layers from the flower Frenzy Die #133728.  The sentiment is from the Really Good Greetings #130333 stamp set and is placed on top of a basic black piece for Chevron Ribbon #130010.

I truly love this color combination and can attest that black really works with everything.

Busy Busy Busy

2014_08_28IMG_4916

I have really been working with the Stampin Up Maritme DSP #133696 lately and I must say when I saw this paper in the DSP pack I thought it was way too busy to use on a card but boyI  was I wrong! I just cut the paper into sections.  The red card base helps “quiet” down and balance the busy background. I added a sentiment from a retired stamp set ( I can’t remember the name) and added it to a hand cut banner with some of the Coastal Cabana Thick Baker’s Twine #135638 to finish the fun card!
