Christmas Tree Wrap

2015_03_25DSCI0802 It is the 25th of the month so I am dedicated to posting a Christmas post. Today, I am featuring the Christmas package that I received from Cammie this past Christmas.  Cammie started with a basic kraft package and she wrapped some kind of green twine used in gardening to form her tree.  She added many bows to decorate the tree and topped it with a gold ribbon topper.  The package was wrapped so cool that I did not want to open the package.

2015_03_05IMG_7037When I opened up the package I was completely surprised because Cammie took my favorite card ever that she made and had it made into an 8 x10 canvas print. Wow was it ever cool and a great gift idea.

Balloon Soiree

2015_03_24IMG_7008Todays card is a real girlie birthday card.  I paired the Gold Soiree DSP #133697 with the Celebrate Today and Balloon Framelits Bundle #138869.  I used the Stampin Up Gold Foil Sheet #132622 to make the gold balloon.  I added Bakers twine to each balloon to make a fun birthday card. I liked how this turned out so much that I cannot wait to make a masculine version.

Irresistible Birthday

2015_03_23IMG_6998 For todays card I used a classic layout featuring 2 patterned papers from 2 different DSP collections in the Stampin Up Sale-a-bration catalog.  The upper layer is from the Best Year Ever DSP #138633 and the bottom layer is from the yummy Irresistibly  Yours #138635 DSP paper collection.  What makes this card so fun is the Irresistibly Yours paper is a white paper with glossy white pattern that is revealed with a coloring technique-sponging,brayering, spritzing or coloring with Stampin Up Blendabilities.  I used the brayer with Crushed Curry ink and the white dots really popped out.

I separated the 2 DSP papers with a piece of satin pool party ribbon.  The happy sentiment is cut with the Hello You Thinlits and the coordinating Crazy About You #138859 stamp set.  The Hello You and the Crazy About You Stampset are a Bundle and Save item when purchased together (wood #139324, clear #139325 and Photopolymer #138873) you can save 15%.

Bright and Eclectic birthday

2015_03_22IMG_6991 I made today’s card using the Kinda Eclectic stamp set #135350 and some bright Stampin Up inks.  I added a punched circle center and a Starburst Sayings #133185 stampset and coordinating Starburst Framelit #132967. I added a trio of coordinating banners punched from the Banners Punch #133519 and the sentiment is from the Banner Banter #134060 stamp set to create this simple, bright and fun birthday card.

2015_03_20IMG_6970 I used my yesterday’s card as my inspiration for today’s “stepped up” birthday card. I kept it mostly the same  but added another layer and changed the color scheme by reversing the colors one the Best Day Ever tag.
