Golden Sunset

2016_01_24IMG_0151

A picture paints a 1000 words and because this card is so stunning I am not going to go into much detail.  Cammie created the colorful sunset and features the now retired Stampin Up Wonderland stamp set. Sit back and enjoy this beautiful all purpose card.

Butterfly gatefold

2016_01_23

I am a big fan of fun fold cards and the gatefold with the “belly band” is one of my favorite styles to make.  I used the now retired Back to Black DSP from Stampin Up. I added a beautiful layered embellishment to the belly band featuring the Stampin Up Watercolor Wings #139424 Photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating Bold Butterly Framelits #138135.  The butterfly rests on a black circle matted by a melon mambo scallop circle.  The sentiment is from the Watercolor Wings and stamped in black on a hand cut banner.

Good Things

2016_01_21IMG_9101

Today’s card is a multi layered card featuring the Stampin Up You’ve Got This #139575 stamp set. This stamp set is perfect for sending your support and showing that you care. .

For the background of the card base I used the textured image from the set.  I added ribbon, washi tape and a piece of a paper doily before adding the stamped, colored and hand cut out large flower from the You’ve got this set and then I wrapped the layer with bakers twine. This card is sure to lift and encourage friends and family and overall making their day a little brighter.

Clearance Rack is Golden

2016_01_20IMG_7884

One of the great things that Stampin Up offers is products that are available on their Clearance Rack.  For today’s card, I used the Gold Soiree Specialty DSP #133697 from the Stampin Up Clearance Rack.  For the focal point I added Definitely Dahlia #139911 and a sentiment for a sympathy card to create a beautiful card.  The best part is that even the clearance items count towards earning free products during the Stampin Up annual SAB campaign.

Out with the Old

2016_01_18DSCI0822

January is a month when we like to spend time clearing out and organizing our lives.  The same holds true with card making.  Cammie was clearing up her workspace and had left over DSP from a retired paper stack so she hand cut banners from all the coordinating papers and then made a tag from the Stampin Up Ornate Tag Topper punch.  She added the images and the sentiment from the Lovely Amzaing  You photopolyer #140594 stamp set.
