Sweet Get well card


Today’s card is a get well card that I received from a dear friend and fellow stamper, Sheri. This card retired Stampin Up DSP and the main panel is stamped with several Stampin Up little image stamps and tied with a bright ribbon.  The sentiment is from the now retired Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Beam of light


Here’s my final card that I made usjng the Stampin Up Hostess Pun Intended #141804. We can all appreciate a good pun. This set is sure to make you chuckle and smile. Spread that cheer using this set to make a wonderfully punny card. To make the beams I just masked off the area with post it notes and then brayered the beam.  I added the sentiment many times and then removed the post its.

Bee Mine


Happy Valentine’s Day! I used up some old Black and White DSP for the background.  For the main panel I randomly stamped the bee and heart images from the Stampin Up Pun Intended #141804 stamp set.  I colored the bees with a Stampin Write marker and added Clear Wink of Stellac#141897 to the wings.  I punched a Sweet heart and added some Black Metallic Thread #141695 behind the heart and then the sentiment from the Pun Intended stamp set.

Turn on the love


Today’s post is another one of Cammie’s Valentine designs.  She started off by texturing the background with the Falling Petals #142761 Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from Stampin Up.  If you look closely it really looks like falling hearts which makes it perfect for Valentines day! For the main panel, Cammie sponged  circular rays of light in a rainbow of colors and then added the stamped image from the Pun Intended #141804 stampset.

Expression of Love


For some of my Valentines I used the Stampin Up Playful Palette DSP to cut the large square and the heart.  I paired that with the Painter’s Palette #141907 stampset to distress the background, for the sentiment and the cute thumbtack. Below is another version of the valentine using the same supplies.  I just switched up the design.2017_02_12img_1286

Lava You


Today’s post is a wild, crazy and quite groovy retro post that Cammie came up with for Valentine’s Day. She started out by texturing the real red cardstock with the new Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #142761.  She used the Tie Dyed # 143008 stampset to create her own DSP and then cut out the border using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits #141497 and punched out the lava lamp using a variety of punches.  Cammie got real creative with the sentiment by combining the love and congrats from the Sunshine Wishes #141489 to make her lava word.

Unique Valentine

Today’s posting is same layout done 2 ways and uses a lot of retired Stampin Up products. The background is textured with the all new Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #142761 from the Stampin Up Occasions catalog. The falling petals look like hearts so that is why Cammie decided to use it for her Valentine.  The DSP is very old stampin Up DSP that Cammie stamped directly onto.  The bird is from the retired Season of Friendship and the foliage on the left is from the In the Meadow #140751 stamp set and the foliage on the right is from the retired An Open Heart stamp set.  Cammie added 2 red glimmer punched hearts.  Although this card was intended for a Valentine, I think it could be used as an all occasion or even a sympathy card.
