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
