Girl You are Fabulous

Todays card is another one from my Retro Fresh workshop. I am sure you can tell that I loved the cards I made for this workshop. I hope you are not getting too bored with the these cards because I think I made about 12 card in all.  All of them were centered around the Retro Fresh Designer Journaling Tags #133526.  Stampin Up made it so easy because easy because everything in the Retro Fresh  collection in the Stampin Up occasions catalog coordinates with the cardstock in the Stampin Up catalog.  The main panel was matted on coastal cabana cardstock and I added a few hand cut banners from coordinating cardstock and a piece of the naturals Chevron ribbon #132982 and Gold Baker’s twine #132975.  To bling it up I added a flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes punch and basic rhinestones #119246

Awesome Sauce

2014_04_11IMG_1088

Today is  Tuesday and digital download day at Stampin Up so be sure to check out  the newest downloads for MDS available on the Stampin Up site.  I don’t have an MDS card or project today but as today’s card indicates MDS is “Awesome Sauce” and really fun to use to create digital projects.

Todays card is another one from my Retro Fresh workshop.  This workshop was one of my best and the most fun for me to create in a long time.  It was fun for me because the main image of this card and all the others in this card suite were from the Retro Fresh Designer Journaling Tags #133526.  Stampin Up made it so easy because easy because everything in the Retro Fresh  collection in the Stampin Up occasions catalog coordinates with the cardstock in the Stampin Up catalog. To create the “splats” I used the gorgeous grunge #130517 stampset and then added the layers of the Retro Fresh elements from the Journaling tags. As I said in the last post using these cute Retro Fresh tags, I overlooked them in the Stampin Up occasions catalog until I saw a fellow demonstrators use of them on a card I was hooked and planned an entire workshop around them.

Banner Birthday

2014_04_21IMG_1121 Today is a BIG birthday shout out to my Older sister and Stampin Up upline Cammie.  I made a special card for Cammie’s birthday using the now retired Sale-a-bration Banner Blast stamp set and coordinating banner punch.  I used one of Cammie’s favorite color combos to make her card even more special.  The card was a simple concept lots of monochromatic banners but preparation was a bit time consuming.  I am very happy with the turn out.

Happy Birthday Cammie.  Hope your day is filled with lots of stampin!

Eggceptional Hoppy Easter

2014_04_20Eggstra Special Since today is Easter I thought I would post 2 cards from Cammie.  The first card is a pretty “eggceptional” card.  Cammie brayered the background and made clouds using the Word Bubbles Framelits #132968 and added the grass using the super popular Fringe Scissors #133325 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog. She added eggs using the ovals framelits #129381 and the Gorgeous Grunge #130517 to decorate the eggs.

 

 

2014_04_20Hoppy Easter Today’s 2nd Easter card is  a real cutie.  As usual she brayered the sky and carrot field and then added the cute bunny from the Eggstra Spectacular #133071 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog  Cammie used a retired alphabet die set to cut out her sweet sentiment.

Hoppy Easter one and all.

Candy Basket

2014_04_20_20140413_0907404_04_20 Two postings from baby Blair in 24 hours is pretty incredible.  Here is a pix of the Pinterest inspired candy Easter baskets that Blair made for our twin niece, Claire and nephew, Dylan. Movie Theatre size candy boxes make up the foundation of the basket and a nerd rope forms the handle.  And if that is not enough candy, then she filled it with all kinds of confections.

Happy Easter

Bunny Bags

2014_04_19IMG_1185 Check out these cute bunny bags I made for my sisters and a friend using the muslin bags #132160 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog. The bags were fun to make but the hard part was prepping the bag by removing the cord and ripping the channel for the cord away that is why I just made 3!!! I used a template to make the nose and ears so I could easily dauber the ink and then hand drew the rest of the face.  I filled them with black jelly beans for my sisters and chocolate and regular jellybeans for my friend.  Hope they enjoy them.
