Colorful Seasons

2017_08_19IMG_2331Today’s card starts off with the all new Color Theory DSP stack #144193 from Stampin Up. I added the Adirondack chair cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits #143751 and the sentiment from the coordinating Colorful Seasons #143726 stamp set.  This card is so quick and easy it truly makes me smile.

Cherry On top

2017_08_17IMG_2382 I have had a ball this summer playing with the now retired Stampin Up Tasty Treats DSP.  I made a mistake and ordered 2 packages so I have had to use the paper for summer birthdays, national icecream day cards and today’s card is an all purpose friendship card.  The sentiment is from the Cool Treats #142982 stamp set in the Stampin Up annual catalog.

You Dazzle Me

2017_08_16IMG_2405 Today’s post is a simple one using a piece of retired Stampin Up DSP.  I added a touch of the new Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, ink and ribbon to make it pop! The sentiment is from the Stampin Up Pocketful of Sunshine #143719.

Late Grad card

2017_08_15IMG_2204 Today’s post is the last of the graduation cards I made for the 2017 season. This card is simply but packs a punch and signifies not only the end of a school year but the start of a new one.  I used the Stampin Up Large Number Framelits #140622 for the numbers and I rolled a piece of scrap  white textured with a retired TIEF into a diploma.  I added the graduation cap using a 1″ square punch and a modified circle.  Good Luck to all graduates in 2017 and to all kids starting a brand new new school year.

Tool Cool

2017_08_14creamsicledayIMG_2371 I needed a quick summery birthday card for a young boy so I decided to go the cool route using the Stampin Up Tasty Treats DSP (retired) as the background. I added the sentiment from the Cool Treats #142982 onto a Stitched Shapes Circle element #145372. Simple, Cute and Cool is just the way summer birthdays should be.

Hammer Time

2017_08_13IMG_2234As  always  I needed a masculine birthday card so I went to my go to masculine stamp set.  The Stampin Up Nailed It stamp set and coordinating Build It Framelits are retired but I love them too much to stop using.  I paired the stamps with the Warmth and Cheer DSP and the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to create a real manly card.  I added the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes #128748 stamp set to complete the card.
