Pop of Pink Birthday girl

2017_06_29IMG_2152 Black and White cards speak to me and are my favorites to make because you can add a pop of color to make a bold statement.  This card features the now retired Pop of Pink DSP from Stampin Up. I dressed the stamped Beautiful You girl #143004 stamp set using scraps of melon mambo and white dots from the Pop of Pink DSP collection. The sentiment is one of the fantastic expressions from the Beautiful You  stamp set the fonts are just as gorgeous as the lovely ladies.

Dragonflies in Flight

2017_06_27IMG_2161 Today’s card is all about the Dragonfly Dreams # 142924 stamp set from Stampin Up to create the textured background on the crumb cake cardstock.  I added scraps of DSP and ribbon and the flight of dragonflies from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits #142749.  The sentiment is from Dragonfly Dreams and stamped on a hand cut banner to create a great birthday card for just about anyone on your card list.

Baking Makes Life Sweeter

2017_06_26 I was sad that Stampin Up did not carry over the Perfect Mix stamp set in the new 2017-2018 annual catalog.  I paired the stamp set with the now retired  Succulent Garden DSP to create a retro and fun card for a baker!

Candle Jar

2017_06_25IMG_0463 It’s the 25th of June which means it is just 6 months til Christmas and its time for my monthly Christmas card post. We tend to put things we love into jars: fireflies, potpourri, buttons, fruits, and candles. Today’s card features the Jar of Love #141587 stamp set and the coordinating Every Day Jars #141490 Framelits from Stampin Up.  The candle is from the Jar of Cheer stamp set that is now retired.

Touches of Texture

2017_06_24IMG_0543

To Most of the textures and elements on today’s card post were achieved using the Touches of Textures #141934 stamp set from Stampin Up. To add even more character, Cammie added the dragonflies from the Dragonfly Dreams #142924 stampset to create this life like meadow landscape.

Upcyled Dragonfly

2017_06_23IMG_0553 Today’s card is a fabulous card with a textured background using a piece of a flap on a Stampin Up shipping box.  Cammie added wisps of thin strips of grass and the dragonfly stamped using the Dragonfly Dreams #142924 stamp set and coordinating Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits #142749 to create this stunning card.

Simply Sweet

2017_06_22IMG_2078 I received this sweet card as a thank you from my friend and customer Sheri.  The card is so simple but oh so delicate with all the elements to create a layered look without all the fuss and minimal stamping is involved. Sheri pulled various Stampin Up products from her stash and created a clean look.
