Spreading Christmas Cheer

2017_07_25IMG_2171 Every July I host a Christmas in July workshop and piggy back that with a week’s worth of Christmas cards on our blog.  Today’s card kicks off the Christmas in July posts. Most of the products for this card are no longer available but love how this card came together.  I started off with a piece of the Pop of Pink DSP and then added a banner and several random pieces of ribbon, The intricate rectangle was cut using the Cheerful Tags Thinlits and then I added the sentiment using the coordinating Here’s to Cheers stamp set. I added some holly using the Holly Berry Builder Punch #141843 and a few pieces of rhinestone bling to complete the card.

Wood Textures Manly card

2017_07_24IMG_2344I brought the look  of the outdoors inside with these natural, rustic patterns in the Wood Textures DSP papet stack from Stampin Up #144177. So many designs, so many colors, so many uses. Fronts and backs are similar grains and colors for ideal use in die cutting. I combined 2 patterns for todays card and embossed the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons #143726 stampset to create the sign.

Washi Tape roundup

2017_07_23IMG_1139From time to time, I like to use products that have not been used in awhile.  Today’s card is just that!  I was reorganizing my embellishments and came across this suite of long retired Washi Tape and went to town creating the card base with layers of tape.  I added a sentiment and a little punch and had a quick and cute card!

Baking Makes Life Sweeter

2017_07_22IMG_2180 Today’s post is another one of the cards I made using the now retired Perfect Mix stamp set from Stampin Up.  I hand cut each image and placed it so that it looked like a table complete with a cute table cloth.  The sentiment is so true!

Crate o’ Macrons

2017_07_21IMG_2352 I was at an event recently and had one of these adorable mini macrons and it was as good as it looked.  So when I worked up this crate using 4 pieces cut from the Wood Crate Framelits #143730. I decorated the crate with flowers from the Number of Years #140653 stamp set and added the cute mini felt bows #144217. I knew the macrons would fit perfectly and the colors looked good too.

Delightful Daisy Bag

2017_07_20IMG_2349 I wanted to showcase the Stampin Up Delightful Daisy DSP #144137 at a recent workshop so I used a whole sheet to make the simple treat bag.  I tied the bag closed with a piece of the gorgeous 1/2 inch Tranquil Tide Finely Woven ribbon.  I added a daisy punched from the Daisy Punch #143713 complete with a Gold Faceted Gem #144141 for the daisy center

Daisy Note cards

I made these sweet 3 and simple inch X 3 inch note cards featuring the Stampin Up Delightful Daisy DSP #144137 and the coordinating and oh so popular Daisy punch #143713.  And if they are not cut enough, I stored them in a wooden crate using the Stampin Up Wood Textures DSP #144177 and the Wood Crate Framelits #143730 and lined with a Delicate Doily #141701.
