Hello Friend

2019_05_26IMG_4370 My monthly Christmas card post is a day late because I had to pay tribute to my baby sister who had a milestone birthday yesterday.  I love this card so much and plan to make it again using traditional Christmas colors.  I used circle punches for the nose and heads. The hats are made using the cupcake dome framelit from the retired cupcake cutout dies.  The pool party hat is textured with the Cable Knit Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #143537.  The striped hat is cut from a piece of the soon to be retired How Sweet It Is #148568 Stampin Up DSP. I added the ruffle using the scalloped edge framelit from the Be Mine Stitched Framelit Dies #148527. The sentiment is from the Well Said # 148796 and coordinating Well Written Framelits #148534

Stacked Cupcake

I wanted to make a bright and fun card for my sisters 50th birthday and I think I succeeded.  I used the now retired Hello Cupcake stamp set and the coordinating Cupcake framelits to make this card.  I started out with a unique fun fold card using the soon to be retiring How Sweet It is DSP and then began layering the cupcakes one on top of the other to make a big cupcake!

Smores

Well 50 years ago today my baby sister Blair was born.  To commemorate her birth I had custom made smores made from our local bakery. I had pictures printed on the marshmallows and graham crackers and they turned out great.  I will post a birthday card later today! Happy 50th birthday Blair!

Happiness Blooms Fun Fold

2019_05_24IMG_4481  I love to make fun fold cards and love it even more when the collapse down to fit in an envelope for mailing and then stand up on their own for displaying.  This is the case with today’s card.  I used the soon to be retired Happiness Blooms Memories and More cards #148531 to create this fun card.

Butterfly Fold

For today’s card I am featuring a fun fold card that allows you to see both sides of the beautiful DSP papers.  The front of the cards are the same layout and feature the retired Botanical Butterfly DSP and soon to be retiring Gingham Gala #148554 DSP from Stampin Up and I used various stamps and dies to embellish the card.

Broadway Birthday

2019_05_22IMG_3894 Today’s card features the Stampin Up soon to be retiring Broadway Bound #146277 DSP.  This paper is awesome because it has bright party designs on one side, all-occasion designs with gold foil on the other side—all you need for glitzy and bold projects! I added the gold foil sentiment cut from the retiring Happy Birthday #143700 Thinlit die.

Sending Love

2019_05_21IMG_3941 The All My Love DSP is on the Stampin Up last chance list.  I really love the hearts and floral combinations in the DSP collection.  I paired it with  Be Mine Stitched Framelits and the Well Said #148796 stamp set to make a fun greeting.
