Crate o’ Macrons

2017_07_21IMG_2352 I was at an event recently and had one of these adorable mini macrons and it was as good as it looked.  So when I worked up this crate using 4 pieces cut from the Wood Crate Framelits #143730. I decorated the crate with flowers from the Number of Years #140653 stamp set and added the cute mini felt bows #144217. I knew the macrons would fit perfectly and the colors looked good too.

Delightful Daisy Bag

2017_07_20IMG_2349 I wanted to showcase the Stampin Up Delightful Daisy DSP #144137 at a recent workshop so I used a whole sheet to make the simple treat bag.  I tied the bag closed with a piece of the gorgeous 1/2 inch Tranquil Tide Finely Woven ribbon.  I added a daisy punched from the Daisy Punch #143713 complete with a Gold Faceted Gem #144141 for the daisy center

Daisy Note cards

I made these sweet 3 and simple inch X 3 inch note cards featuring the Stampin Up Delightful Daisy DSP #144137 and the coordinating and oh so popular Daisy punch #143713.  And if they are not cut enough, I stored them in a wooden crate using the Stampin Up Wood Textures DSP #144177 and the Wood Crate Framelits #143730 and lined with a Delicate Doily #141701.

Scream for Ice cream

2017_07_16IMG_2384 Happy National Ice Cream Day! I know that I will be celebrating this day with some sweet frozen confection especially since we have spent the last week in the heat and humidity without Air Conditioning! For this card I used the now retired Stampin Up Tasty Treats DSP as the background and then used the Tasty Trucks stamp set (also retired) to create the ice cream truck complete with handwritten sentiment!

My favorite ice cream is any flavor from Jeni’s Ice cream or mint chocolate chip. Enjoy the day and leave a comment of what your favorite flavor is.

Color Theory Smiles

2017_07_15IMG_2332 Everything about this card makes me smile.  I started out using the ever so popular and super fun Color Theory DSP #144193 for the background and the monochromatic “paint chip” panel.  I  cut the Adirondack chair using the Seasonal Layers #143751 Thinlits and added the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons #143726 Photopolymer stamp set.

This little light of mine

2017_07_14IMG_2220 Today I am featuring another great look with the High Tide #143006 stamp set from Stampin Up.  I paired the stamp set with the fabulous Wood Textured Designer Series Paper #144177.  To create the paneled look I simply created my beach scene then cut the strip in 3 equal sizes and lined it up on the mat.  Love the look!
