EEK-Its halloween time

2015_09_30IMG_9080 Today’s post is a super fun card to remind me that my favorite holiday is fast approaching!  I dusted off the now retired Stampin Up Spooky Bingo Bits and punched each image using the Stampin Up Hexagon punch #130919.  I assembled the pieces on the Textured Brick Wall #138288.  The orange and black striped DSP is from a long ago retired Halloween suite of DSP.  It feels good to bring out the old and combine with new to create a cute card.

English Garden Happy day


When I need a quick card, I like to pull out pretty Stampin Up DSP and work some magic.  The Stampin Up English Garden DSP #138440 collection has beautiful colors and floral design that it is the star of today’s card. The English Garden paper  the English Garden DSP can easily stand on its own – lending any card instant color and charm.  I added a piece of satin ribbon to soften the paper even more and added a simple sentiment.

They say it is your birthday

2015_09_28IMG_9097 Lots of fun products from the Stampin Up annual catalog  were used to create this super cute card.  I started with a whisper white background and then stamped confetti using the Sprinkles of Life #139447 stampset.  I added to strips of DSP from the Cherry On Top #138443 and used the Stampin Up Fringe Scissors #133325 and a piece oof Cherry on Top Cotton paper to a fringed strip. I used the Stake Your Claim #139447 stampset and the coordinating Handpicked framelits #137361 to add a sign.  I added a couple more party accents using Washi Tape and by rolling the fringed cotton paper using basic toothpicks

Classic Butterflies


The Stampin Up Watercolor Wings #139424 two step stamp set makes making butterflies a snap.  I paired the Watercolor Wings with the Bold Butterflies #138135 Framelits.  The butterflies were adhered to the Textured Brick Wall background and the sentiment is from the watercolor wings stamp set that I hand cut into a banner.

Artichoke Thanks


Once again I went to the Stampin Up Farmers Market DSP collection to make this card.  The DSP is so fantastic that it really does not need much to make a nice card.  I added the artichoke stamp from the now retired Home grown stamp set.

2015_09_26IMG_9001 For similar card. I used the now retired DSP and randomly stamped artichokes from the Homegrown stampset and then added a strip of always artichoke cardstock and the Fabulous Four stampset #134171

Greetings for the Season


It’s the 25th of the month again so that means it’s time for a Christmas post. For this card, I used retired DSP and lots of stars in all shapes and sizes and a Christmas sentiment to complete the design.  This card is perfect for re-creating multiples for your Christmas greetings.

Brick Wall Birthday


I love it when I can combine multiple products and make a super fun birthday card.  The background is from my new favorite TIEF from Stampin Up- the Brick Wall #138288. I added another favorite- Typeset DSP#133704, to serve as the mat for the main panel. For the flower I stamped it using the You’ve Got This #139575 stampset , then colored it using Copic markers and handcut it out.  The sentiment is from the Stampin Up hostess set called Happy Birthday, Everyone #139171 and the butterfly is from the Best Thoughts #139234 stampset.

English Garden DSP

2015_09_22IMG_9096 When I am in a design funk, and need a card I often turn to a pack of Stampin Up DSP and combine 2 patterns.  For today’s card, I used the beautiful English Garden DSP # 138440 from Stampin Up.  I added a piece of whisper white ribbon to hide the seam and added an layered accent using the retired doily and other punches. Simple and sweet cards can start and end with beautiful DSP.
