Skull and Crossbones

2013_09_26IMG_3598Today’s card took me less than 5 mins to make from start to finish!  I like to create a simple and quick card but love it when it turns out cute too.  I used the Witches Brew Washi Tape #132156 to add to the background and then topped it off with a punched sentiment from the Tags 4 You #131820 stamp set and the coordinating Label Bracket Punch #132153.  All these items are available from the Stampin Up Holiday catalog.  Please note: the Tags 4 You stamp set  and the Label Bracket punch are a bundle and save item.  When purchased together, (wood #133293 & clear #133294) you save 15% off.  The items in the holiday catalog are available for a limited time- 2 January 2014.

Stripped Birthday Basics

2013_09_29IMG_3605Nothing screams birthday like the bright and fun colors in the Stampin Up Birthday Basics DSP.  I love the fun patterns in the birthday paper but used caution to not over do it; so I used strips of the patterned paper and added a textured layered fun flower using the Blossom punch #125603,  the Pansy Punch #130698 and the 7/8″ Scallop circle punch #129404 for the center.  I layed the flower along the contrasting Scallop edge border #119882.  Super easy and a great way to use up scraps.

Tag it-I dig you

2013_09_28IMG_3607I used the Gingham Garden DSP #129310 from the Stampin Up annual catalog to create this countryside garden card.  I used the Chalk Talk framelit #129983 to make the tag that I stamped the shovel image from the Tag It #130303 stampset.  The Tag It stamp set is the charitable stampset that supports the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  For every Tag It set sold Stampin Up donates $3 to RMHC- to date Stampin Up has donated over $1,000,000 to RMHC.

To complete the card I added paper ruffle using the edge of the Tea Lace Paper Doilies #129399 and made a sunflower from the 1 3/4 ” scallop circle punch #119854.

Freakin Love you

2013_09_27DSCI04332013_09_27DSCI0434 For today’s card Cammie drew her inspiration from the card on page 37 of the 2013-2014 Stampin Up annual catalog.  She stepped it up by using used the all new Stampin Up Thinlits Circle card die#133480 that cuts, scores and creates a card that flips in just 1 easy step.  The real red cardstock was textured with the woodgrain textured folder #127821.  The flappable circle  has a heart cut from scrap DSP using the Hearts a Flutter fra,elits #130159 on the front side and the flip side has the Yippee-Skippee #131344 stampset stamped multiple times.  She finished the seam with hearts punched using the small heart #117193. Super fun and cute card.  There is also a thinlit label diecut card 133479 that is equally as cute.

Welcome Baby

2013_09_23DSCI0343 Cammie supplies a couple of local shops with her cute cards.  One of the demands is to have baby cards available.  Baby cards are tough to make but once Cammie purchased the Baby Prints #125472 stamp set from Stampin Up she was able to keep up with the baby demands.  The background is whisper white cardstock is textured with the Alphabet Press #130816 and the crushed curry cardstock is textured with the Square Lattice #119976 folders from the current Stampin Up catalog.  Cammie stamped the hand and foot prints and then fussy cut them out before adding them to the card front.  She finished the card with the cute sentiment cut into a custom banner.

Christmas candle punch art

2013_09_25IMG_0595 Today is the 25th and that means time for a Christmas card posting.  Can’t believe it is just 3 months from Christmas and I already have some of my this year’s cards done! Sorry for the horrible picture for today’s card but I wanted to focus on the main punch art piece.  The background DSP is from a now retired Christmas line from last year’s Stampin Up catalog.  The poinsettias were created using the mini Christmas punches (no longer available), the candle is made from the Ticket Duo Builder punch #126883 and the flame is the mini ornament punch (no longer available.  The candle is mounted on a window frames collection framelit #129021 and pierced using the coordinating Festive paper piercing pack #127857.  I truly love creating punch art.

June Cleaver days gone by

2013_09_24mwwlife_2_2_2-027 (2)2013_09_24mwwlife_2_2_2-027 (1)I always look forward to Tuesday’s because that is when Stampin Up introduces the new weekly MDS downloads.  To stay in theme Tuesday’s are when I post my digital works.  Today’s My Digital Studio 2 page layout uses some fun vintage paper aka Domestic Goddess  from a few catalogs ago. June Cleaver I am not but I love this paper line and especially love the fact that with digital DSP I can use it forever!

For today’s page I combined several of the Domestic Goddess papers and added the old time pictures for the book for my mother in laws 80th birthday.

Be sure to check out the newest downloads for MDS available on the Stampin Up site.

Given enough coffee…

2013_09_22DSCI0421… I could rule the world, temporarily.  Although I don’t drink coffee, I love this saying and almost everything else about coffee except for the taste.  On the otherhand, my other sisters love coffee and Cammie sure had the perfect blend to make today’s card.  She textured every layer of this card using different Stampin Up textured folders.  She used the Perfect Blend #131392 stampset to make her cup and sentiment.  She stamped the sleeve on DSP and cut out the cup and sleeve.  Cammie mounted the sentiment on Punched Label Bracket #132153 punch.  Cammie used the Chevron border punch #132154 to accent and draw attention to the sentiment. Both punches are only available in the Stampin Up Holiday catalog and available for purchase through 2 January 2014.

All things bright and beautiful

2013_09_21IMG_3368Lately I have been spending a lot of time playing with paper and have had a great time doing it.  I saw a layout using the 4 panel design and thought I’d give it a try with the Quatrefancy Specialty DSP #130141 from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  I paired the DSP with the coordinating Mosaic Madness #130249 stampset and punch #131267.  I  absolutely love the clean and bright finished card.  If you like the Mosaic Madness products be sure to Bundle them.  You can save 15% when you purchase the Mosaic Madness Stamp set and the Mosaic Punch together (clear bundle #132733 & Wood bundle #132734).

Sweet Sylvester

2013_09_20DSCI0426Hello Sylvester!  Cammie has done it again by creating punch art using simple shapes and Stampin Up framelits and punches. The Ovals Framelit collection #129381 the suite of oval punches and a whole lotta of imagination and creativity allowed Cammie to create this super cute card.  Love how she swapped the colors to make it gender specific!
