Perfectly Artistic Sky

For todays post I paired 2 of the no longer available Stampin Up Sale-a-bration items to make a masculine birthday card.  Both the Sky’s the Limit and the Perfectly Artistic DSP work together to send the perfect message to our niece’s boyfriend Austin who is celebrating his 22nd birthday today. To put this card over the limit, I added a vellum propeller attached with a mini brad.2016_02_22IMG_0566

Winter Wonderland


Today’s card is a great Thank you card featuring the retired Wonderland stamp set from Stampin Up. For the sentiment, Cammie used gold embossing powder to make the message stand out.  This card is sized to fit in a standard business size envelope and it is fun to switch the card sizes up from time to time.

Humming Birds


Today’s post is another Stampin Up Picture Perfect #140520 card that features the Picture Perfect Stamp set in the Occasions catalog  The images in this set really come to life because of the 2 step stamping technique and then heat embossed to add more textureer. The swirls from the Everything Eleanor #131987 added classic elegance to the all occasion card.

Hope Like Crazy


Today’s post is a gorgeous brayered card that I received from Cammie for Valentine’s Day but it would be a fantastic pick me up card for any occasion.  To make the seashell heart, Cammie stamped 2 conch shells from the now retired By the Seashore stamp set twice and the heart is embedded in her beach scene.  The white sea foam was created using the resist technique with the Gorgeous Grunge #130514 stampset and her white gel pen.  The sentiment is from the Picture Perfect # 140520 stamp set.

Today’s card is a simple card that can be used for any occasion and features the retired vellum from last years Stampin Up Sale-a-bration.  This card is sure to spread happiness to anyone who receives it! The 2 color blocked rectangles help the card pop.  The red layer features a row of hearts cut using the hearts border in the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits die #137547.  The sentiment is from the Stampin Up Lovely Amazing You #140594 stamp set.
