Timeless Poppies


For Cammie’s August workshops she packaged all the card kits in a beautifully decorated Stampin Up Standard Storage Case #119105. She created layers using the Timeless Textures #140514 stampset.  The main piece is stunning and features layered Poppies (retired Pleasant Poppies stamp) but it actually was designed as a card so that it can be taken out and added to a card base.  What a great idea!  The August cards we made in class were equally stunning and will be posted soon.

Swirly Bouquet

2016_08_26IMG_1169I went a little wild using the all the new Stampin Up in-color inks and some of the images from the Swirly Bird stampset #141749 to randomly stamp images and the rose bouquet.  To add texture to the roses I added the swirl centers cut from the coordinating Swirly Scribbles Thinlits #1471497 and glimmered them up using my new found favorite tool- Wink of Stella pen #141897.  The Swirly Bird and Swirly Scribbles work well together and as luck would have it Stampin Up offers them as a bundled item.  When you purchase them together #142353 you can save 10%.

This Christmas Wrap


At my  Christmas in July workshop last month I wanted to feature the new Christmas DSP from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  The paper is called This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper #141628 and is a lightweight double sided Christmas paper.  I just cut strips and wrapped the candy nuggets to show off the designs.

Tiled Birthday

2016_08_24IMG_1140Nothing screams birthday like candles, confetti and more!  Today’s card features the now retired It’s My Party DSP from Stampin Up.  The tiled layout features 4 pieces of the fabulous paper.  In the center I built a layered element using the scallop circle and circle punches and then added the sentiment from the Thoughtful Banners #141614 stamp set and punched it out with the coordinating Duet Banner punch# 141483.  Super fun card

Banner Birthday


I love the Stampin Up Pop of Pink DSP#141648 that is featured on today’s birthday card. For the main focal piece, I textured a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock using the Festive Textured Impressions Embossing folder #141471.  I then used the Best Badge punch #140633#140633 to create a window to display the coordinating sentiment from the Badges and Banners stamp set #141605.  Once it was matted on black cardstock I added a few little hand cut banners from scrap pieces of the pop of pink DSP

29 again?


My  dear friend Kim is  celebrating a milestone birthday today! In her honor,  I will be posting a few cards over the next 3 days to make her birthweek complete!  This card uses the now retired It’s My Party DSP from Stampin UP.  I paired that with the Number of Years #140653 and the coordinating Large Numbers Framelits #140811 to create the focal panel. Happy birthday Kim!

Thank my lucky stars


Todays post is a blast from the recent past.  All products were from the Stampin Up 2016 Occasions catalog Going Places product suite. The background was textured with the World Traveler Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  For the main panel, I showcased the Going Places DSP in strips and and accessorized with stamps from the Going Global and scattered a few punched stars.
