Joy Tidings

2015_05_26_SnowmanFor those of you wanting more Christmas posts and were waiting for the post on the 25th todays post is for you.  I had to post my sisters birthday card yesterday on the 25th of May so this month the Christmas post was delayed. This card is absolutely adorable and designed by Cammie.  I love the non traditional color scheme that Cammie used.  The smoky slate background was created using the Stampin Up Hearts and Stars decorative Mask #133777 and whisper white craft ink.  The top border was created using the Confetti Stars Border Punch #135861. Cammie used a piece of Tangelo Twist ribbon #133669 on the tag and on the card front to separate the base from the star border.  The Island Indigo tag was created using the Stampin Up Tag Topper Scalloped Punch #133324 and then she used her circle punches to create the whimsical snowman.

Stars and Stripes 4ever

2015_05_25IMG_7152 A great big birthday shout out to our baby sister Blair and a happy Memorial Day to everyone!  Since it is memorial day and Blair’s birthday I thought a stars and stripes card would be perfect for the day.  The starts and stripes panel started out as the Stampin Up Irresistibly Yours DSP that was part of the Sale-a-bration and no longer available but good news, the new catalog has the resist paper with different designs.  I used a brayer to color the stars and stripes and then added the sentiment from the Stampin Up Bravo photopolymer stamp set #135380.

2Fer Happy Things

2015_05_24IMG_70132015_05_24IMG_7020Today I am posting 2 cards in 1 post featuring the Stampin Up Adventure Bound DSP paper stack # 137780
that is currently available in the Stampin Up Occasions catalog. The Adventure Bound DSP has 48 sheets of 4 each of 12 double-sided designs of 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ paper and are great for card fronts or backgrounds.  There are no delicate flowers or soft colors with this DSP; instead the DSP is  bold spirited graphics are  and the right choice for  making  Father’s Day, graduation, or other masculine projects. . Both cards also feature the now retired A Happy Thing Sale-a-Bration stamp set.

Both cards have similar layouts and crop the bird in a circle.  The card on the left uses the soon to be retired Starburst Framelits #132967 for the bird to perch on top of the woodgrain DSP while the card on the right the circle is cut into the birch tree and the bird is nesting inside.  For the sentiment I used the soon to be retiring stamp set, Lots of Thanks #129687.

You Made My Day

2015_05_21DSCI0812 Today’s post is a beautiful and multi layered card that Cammie made to show case the Painted Blooms DSP #137784.   Cammie used the Butterfly Basics Photoplymer Stamp set #137154 to texture the tags and the Daffodil cardstock.  The tags were created using the Ornate Tag Topper Punch #137416.  Cammie then cut a lacy butterfly using Butterfly Thinlit #137360 and added a sentiment onto a hand cut banner.  She finished by adding layered Boho Blossoms punched flowers.
