Hit the slopes


Well now that Thanksgiving is over its time to go all out on Christmas cards.  Today’s card is one that Cammie created using the super fun Snow Place #139738 stamp set from Stampin Up. This set is so versatile and these snow buddies will help you share your love for all things wintery and cool. They’re chill on Christmas cards, party invitations, and tags. And they’re equally awesome on winter scrapbook pages and anywhere you just need a snowman.  The ski slope was created using the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #139672 and from there Cammie went to town creating with the Snow Place stamp set.

Thankful Grateful Blessed


This card is simple in design but took me forever to be happy with the finished design.  The  Petals and Paisleys DSP from Stampin Up is so stunning with the copper foil images that is should be able to stand alone but I decided to embellish it with the coordinating Paisleys and Posies #142196 stamp set and the coordinating Paisley Framelits #141849 and just the right mix of Copper foil!

Thankful for You


For today’s card, I paired the Stampin Up Totally Trees #14le 2198 stamp set with the gorgeous fall DSP Petals and Paisleys to create a beautiful and simple thank you card.  The trick with using multiple patterned papers on the same card is to separate the layeres with a coordinating mask.  If you are wondering how I got the perfect stitched look on the focal square I used the new Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372 from Stampin Up that were available for a limited time but are now currently unavailable until they are re-introduced in Jan 2017.

This is one of my favorite stamp sets in the Stampin Up Holiday catalog.  The Totally Trees #142198 is perfect for all seasons because there are so many trees of all shapes and sizes!

Go Buckeyes


Anyone living in central Ohio knows that today is the Big Game to beat TTUN (That Team Up North)!  For those that don’t care about the game and live in Columbus it’s the perfect time to shop because no one will be out!

The Ohio State University removes all “M’s ” from campus signs during beat *ichigan week ; so I find it only fitting that I should make a card to wish the Buckeyes a big win and hope Penn State loses to Sparty so that OSU can play in the Big 10 Championship game. My card is simple and uses the 2 1/2 ” circle punch and the wide oval for the buckeyes and the letters are cut from a retired alphabet set.

Affectionately Yours

I wanted showcase the beautiful Affectionately Yours DSP I  #141632 from Stampin Up for two cards for two different occasions. I created the striped piece using the image in the Thoughtful Banners #141614 stamp set and coordinating colors of ink to match the DSP.  I added words from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and used the coordinating  Duet Banner Punch to accent the occasion.  The Thoughtful Banners stamp set is as diverse as the people in your life and has  has everything you need to make a banner to celebrate everyone and everything you love.

Paisely Wreath


Happy Thanksgiving one and all.  Sorry for the crooked picture.  I mailed the card before I checked the quality of the picture. This card looks simple but took a lot of effort to complete because the intricate design of the leaf made cutting a challenge…. even with the Big Shot -so I just made 1.

For today’s card I used lots of leaves cut from the Paisley Framelits # 141849 and formed them in the shape of a wreath.  I randomly added sequins left over from the October My Paper Pumpkin kit.  I created a window using the Classic Label Punch #141491 and added the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set (retired).

Cinderella Pumpkin

Today’s post is a result of both Cammie and I blogging and seeing what other creative people are doing with Stampin Up products.  I must admit when I saw this pumpkin I immediately thought it was pretty enough to be Cinderella’s pumpkin. Essentially the cards are the same (Cammie’s is on the left and mine is on the right).

We started out by texturing the background with the Woodland Texture Impressions Embossing Folder #139673 and then stamped the leaf image from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set (retired).  For the gorgeous pumpkin we used the Beautiful Branches Thinlits.  Cammie added a sentiment from the Suite Seasons #142206 in the hand cut frame from the Christmas Pines stamp set #141851.

Forever in Blue Jeans


I love denim so I decided to try my hand at making a pair of blue jeans by randomly stamping the hatched image from the You’ve Got This  #139572 background stamp in dapper denim ink onto marina mist cardstock. For the belt loops I punched Classic Label #141491 and the belt was textured using the Woodgrain #127821 Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  For the pocket I stamped the image from the Badges and Banners #141605 stamp set and punched it out with the coordinating Best Badge punch #140633. The sentiment is also from the Badges and Banners stamp set and punched with the Duet Banner punch #141483.

Artistically Pleasing fall card


Today’s card is full of texture from the razzleberry background that was textured with the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #143537 from the Stampin Up Holiday catalog. She then the main panel that Cammie made using the direct to paper method and lots of color.  She embossed the flourish from the now retired Everything Eleanor stampset in espresso powder.  To complete the card she cut leaves from the retired Beautiful Branches Thinlits from espresso cardstock and gold foil to create this stunning card.
