Tutti-Frutti Birthday

2018_04_26IMG_3121 I really liked the Tutti-Frutti #145606 DSP from the Stampin Up Occasions catalog but it will soon be retiring along with the Fruit Basket#145833 stamp set  and the coordinating Itty Bitty Fruit Punch  Pack #145657. I used all three products to create today’s card.  This card was fun to make and really reminds me of slot machines in a casino of which I am never a winner!

Picture Perfect Christmas

2018_04_25IMG_3151 In order for me to keep up with sending hand made Christmas cards to all my family and friends, I make an appoint to come up with at least one design per month and I make at least 8 of each design.  Today’s Christmas post (because it is the 25 th of the month) features the Picture Perfect Birthday #145519 stamp set from the Occasions catalog in traditional Christmas colors.  The bows on the base piece were stamped using the new Stamparatus tool that will be available for purchase in the new 2019-2019 Stampin Up annual catalog.  The bow in the middle row was stamped and then hand cut out.

Apron Craze

2018_04_24IMG_3096 I have gone wild with the Stampin Up Apron Of Love stamp set and coordinating Apron Builder Framelit #145661.  With this Apron I embossed it with the Stampin Up Logo from the now retired Workshop Words stamp set and then filled the pocket with tools from the Crafting Forever #143955 and other scraps.  I used the fabulous Painted With Love DSP #145580.

Creative Apron

2018_04_23IMG_3081 I have had so much fun creating aprons with the Apron Builder #145661 Framelit,  I used retired Sending Love DSP for the background and the apron pocket.  I embossed the sentiment from the Crafting Forever #143958 stamp set.  The Apron Builder Framelits and the coordinating Apron of Love stamp set will be carried over in the new 2018-2019 Stampin Up annual catalog beginning on June 1st.

HB 2 You

2018_04_22IMG_3040 Today I am featuring all things Bottles and Bubbles and excited to announce that the Bubble Over #145868 stamp set and the coordinating Bottles and Bubbles #146082 Framelits from Stampin Up will be carried over to the new 2018-2019 Stampin Up annual catalog starting June 1st. I layered a few different pieces of the Bubbles and Fizz DSP and a Starburst #143717 punched piece to create the background. I used the Large Numbers #140622 Framelits and the Celebrate You Thinlits that were available during Sale-a-Bration but will be carried over in the new catalog too.

Panda-monium

2018_04_21IMG_3035 Happy 60th birthday to our sister and my Stampin Up Upline Cammie!! For today’s post, I cut thin strips from the Color Theory DSP #144193 to look like bamboo and then added the adorable pandas from the now retired Party Pandas stampset.   I love this card because it reminds me the wall paper from my childhood bedroom.

Cut out to be friends

2018_04_20_edited Anyone who knows me knows that I love scissors in all shapes and sizes.  So when Stampin Up introduced the Crafting Forever #143958 stamp set I had to have it and today’s card showcases that set.
