Oh Happy Day Treat Bag

2015_05_05IMG_6918Happy Cinco De Mayo! Today I am posting a cute retirement card I made using the Stampin Up Mini Treat Bag  # 137547for the envelope. The DSP is retired from Stampin Up several years ago and the Sentiment is from the Starburst Sayings #133185 and cut out using the coordinating Starburst Framelits #132967.  Both the Starburst Sayings and the Starburst Framelits are on the soon to be Stampin Up retired list. I added some remnants of ribbon and closed the bag with a mini clothes pin #133764.

For the card inside, I kept it simple and2015_05_05IMG_6920 attached coordinating banners punched using the Stampin Up banner punch #133519 and a piece of fringed ribbon to the end of a tooth pick. I anchored the toothpicks with a banner cut from the soon to be retired Bitty Banners framelits #129267 and stamped the sentiment using the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set #128748.

Balloon Celebration

2015_05_04IMG_7043 May brings flowers and balloons for Mothers Day, Graduations and of course May birthdays and the Stampin Up Celebrate Today #137138 stamp set came to the rescue for me to make a stack of multi-purpose cards.  I used the now retired  Irresistibly Yours DSP and sponged ink to reveal the embossed dots on the pear pizazz balloon.  The pear balloon and tails were cut using the coordinating Balloons framelits #137362.

The Celebrate Today and the Balloon Framelits are available as a bundled item and you can save 15% when purchased together as a single item number.

Just Sayin Hello

2015_05_02IMG_7133 Today I am just popping in to Say hello and good bye to some of the Stampin Up products that have retired or are on the current retired list.  The Best Year Ever DSP is from the recent Stampin Up sale-a-bration.  I punched a hole in the DSP Strip using the 2″ Circle Punch.  I then added a piece of coordinating DSP from the Best Day Ever under the main DSP to accent the multi-layered hello.  The hello was cut multiple times using the Hello You Thinlits #137363. I added the sentiment from the soon to be retired Just Sayin’ #133203 stamp set. I framed the sentiment using the Bitty Banners Framelits # 129267 and added a flower punched from the Itty Bitty Accents punch.

Be sure to check out the Stampin Up retiring stamps and accessories before they are gone forever.  Some of the retiring embellishments have already sold out and lots are discounted so get em while you can!

Just Because

2015_05_01DSCI0813 Just because Cammie loves the Stampin Up Butterfly Basics # 137154 stamp set she made a monochromatic panel using the fern image from the Butterfly Basics stamp set. She matted the focal panel on basic black cardstock and then added it to a pool party card base that has been textured with the Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #132174.  She added the Just Because sentiment from the now retired A Dozen Thoughts stamp set.

This card is a quick and easy all purpose card that can be used for any occasion just by switching out the sentiment.
