Nothing is better than Black and White or in this case Black and Ivory to make a fun all purpose card. I used the SU striped textured impressions folder to serve as my guide to cut strips of the fabulous Modern Medley DSP #126926 between each stripe I then used the Flower shop #130942 stampset and the Coordinating Pansy punch #130698 to make a perfect bold statement on this card. I added a birthday sentiment and love the way it all came together.
Happy birthday to our friend and Stampin Up customer Jenniffer Evans. Today’s post is a fun look at how using the same layout but switching orientation and colors can change the look. Cammie used the Hexagon Hive Thinlit #132965 available in the Stampin Up Occasions catalog to cut the card front to make her male and female cards. She used random hexagons in mambo and tangerine for the gal card and island indigo and gumball green fro the guy card. She added the sentiment ( A Dozen Thoughts #131059, Yippee Skippe #131344)to a punched Decorative Label #120907 and embellished accordingly.
The Hexagon Hive really makes a great impression and looks like a lot of work but really it is just a die. Here’s a tip to make your life much easier when using the die. Add a piece of wax paper to between the card stock and the die before cutting it with the bigshot. The wax paper makes it so much easier to get the intricate hexagon piece out of the die.
I love birthdays and celebrate my birthday all month long! As luck would have it March is my birth month so I plan to show case a lot of birthday cards this month. Today’s card is a fun card I made using randoms scraps. I made the “birdday” birds using various sizes of circle punches and the wing from the Stampin Up Bird Builder #119191 punch. The party hats and beaks were hand cut in triangles an I had drew their stick legs. The added the sentiment to complete the card. Super easy and a fun way to use those scraps that are not quite big enough to use but you don’t want to throw away. Happy Bird day month to me!
Stampin Up’s MDS software and downloads make it so easy to design the calendars. Today’s post is the March 12 X12 calendar page for my 2014 Calendar. I and kept it simple by using the quote from the 2013 quotable calendar download and the chalkboard DSP from the School Days download. It’s quick, fun, and quirky all in one.
Speaking of MDS, remember today is digital download day at Stampin Up so be sure to check out the newest downloads for MDS available on the Stampin Up site.
The card in a box concept is popping up all over Pinterest and Stampin Up demonstrators blogs so I had to get in on the action! I love it. The card folds up flat but when opened it pops open and stands on its own. It looks difficult but it really is not that bad after you make your first one you get the hang of it and then it gets contagious.
For the pop up piece I used the Sweet Sorbet DSP #133521 and the Flower Shop#130942 stamps and coordinating Pansy Punch #130698 to decorate the inside of the box and the main panel. I added a blue bird using the Season of Friendship (now retired) stamp and the coordinating Bird Builder Punch #117191.
This was really fun to make and its even mailable which makes it even more fun to receive.
