Today I am featuring another card featuring using the yummy Stampin Up Moonlight DSP paper stack #133701. I can’t help myself because I love this stack and especially love the Hello Honey new in color. I really think it goes with all the new in colors and most of Stampin Ups colors. I textured the background with my new favorite textured impressions embossing folder, Large Polka Dot #133739 because I love love love polka dots! I added a strip of the polka dot Moonlight DSP and finished the card with a bow cut from Lost Lagoon cardstock using the Gift Bow die #129977. For the center of the bow, I added a flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack #133787.

When the new 2014-2015 Stampin Up annual catalog debuted in June, the first things I ordered were the fabulous Beautiful Bunch #134282 stamp set and the coordinating Fun Flower punch #133785. I also fell in love with the Moonlight DSP paper stack #133701 and made today’s card with my new stuff. I think the Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss rock when used together! Behind the punched flower I added a flower shaped with the Gold Metallic Bakers Twine #132975. Love the look!
Your eyes are not deceiving you. That is a Christmas tree that I had set up for my recent and most successful Christmas in July workshop. My customers love and look forward to the Christmas in July workshop and I decided this year to use what I had on hand since Stampin Up’s annual catalog has a limited offering of Christmas stamps and other stuff and the new Stampin Up holiday catalog is not available yet so that makes it hard to have a Christmas in July workshop. I had a fun time looking beyond the stamp or framelit and create a card that was not intended for the stamp. Plus Cammie helped out and sent me kits from her successful Christmas in July workshop and the cutest Elf treat box from the all new Fry Box XL die #132966. Cammie’s Christmas cards were posted a few days ago and mine will post soon.
So today I am show the details of what each guest got for attending this workshop. Each guest got a white elephant stamp set wrapped in the comic section of the news paper and I made a hand made bow from retired Stampin Up DSP, a brown paper bag with all their workshop items inside. The brown paper bag was stamped with a Christmas greeting and tied with a piece of the 5/8″ Gold Satin Ribbon #134547. Each guest also got a bonus Paper Pumpkin card to make and the cutest elf treat container filled with chocolate. It was a lot of work to get ready but it was a fun event.
I needed a quick thank you card and my goal was to find an unused stamp set and use it so today’s card is it. I bought the Blooming with Kindness #126422 stampset a long while ago and never used it. So I used the big blossom and stamped it in 3 different inks, added a sentiment and a coordinating ribbon and card was complete. Love the quick and easy cards!
Today’s card is a quick card using old retired products. The card could easily be reproduced by using updated and current supplies. I used Washi tape to make the candle and the flame is made with the wing from the Bird Builder punch #117191. I added a sentiment using a now retired set called Bring on the Cake.
