Balloon Bouquet

2016_09_28img_1161

Nothing screams birthdays like balloons! For today’s post, I added a balloon bouquet stamped using the Stampin Up Balloon Celebration #140675 and the coordinating Balloon Bouquet Punch to float some good birthday wishes.  The  retired It’s My Party DSP added some fun to this birthday card.

Bee Happy

2016_09_26img_1313

I was cleaning up my craft table and found some pieces of DSP and cardstock that reminded me of bees so I pulled out the Stampin Up Hostess set- Pun Intended # 141804 stampset to add the bees.  Once they were colored in, I added the gold Wink of Stella and used the piercing tool to make the trails. To fill in the spaces I added the smiley faces from the retired Sale a Bration Hello stamp set.  The sentiment from the retired Stampin Up Picture This stamp set ties it all together!

Believe in This Christmas

2016_09_25img_1453

It’s already the 25th of the month and that means it’s time for a Christmas post. It is only September and I have most of my Christmas cards done for 2016 because I committed to making some each month and at least one per card workshop and that has really paid off.  This card features the This Christmas Specialty DSP #141628 in the Stampin Up annual catalog.  The main focal panel is stamped using the tree from the Thoughtful Branches #144328 stamp set .  The cardinals were also stamped using the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and cut out using the coordinating Beautiful Branches Thinlits#143538.  For the sentiment banner , I used the Thoughtful Banners stamp set #141614 and punched it out using the coordinating Duet Banner Punch #141483.  The sentinment is from the now retired Good Greetings stamp set.  Before adding the banner, I added wisps of Cherry Cobbler and Emerald Envy Metallic Thread #142003.

Halloween Night

2016_09_24img_1462

I wanted to get in the Halloween spirit so I decided to create a card with a whole lotta new Stampin Up product.  I started by layering 2 pieces of Halloween Night #142022 DSP. I created the spooky fence using the Classic Label Punch #141491. The Tree is cut from the Beautiful Branches #143538 Thinlits.  I added the skulls from the Mr. Funny Bones #142245 stamp set and then handcut and placed on the fence posts.  The moon is punched from a piece of Pumpkin Pie Glimmer paper #142029 and added a bat punched from the retired Stampin Up bat punch.

Peaceful Night

2016_09_23img_0153

Today’s post is a real beauty and believe it or not Cammie used the retired Stampin Up Joyful Season stamp set to create this beautiful all occasions card.  The Joyful Season stamp set is a Christmas stamp set that Cammie chose to use in a non traditional way.

The hills are alive

2016_09_22img_0206When I saw this beautiful card that Cammie created I immediatly thought of the Alps and broke out in soung singing tunes from the Sound of Music.  To create this scence Cammie used the In the Meadow #140751 stamp set to bring the tranquility of the great outdoors and added color to make this card come to life with her brayering and sponging skills.
