Painted Autumn

2017_09_30IMG_2639 Despite the record high temperatures we have been experiencing in Ohio recently, it is officially fall.  I used the Painted Harvest #144613 DSP from Stampin Up to add the fall flavor to this card.  I used the 1/4″ Copper Trim #144179 to hide the seam. I added a coffee cup cut using the Coffee Cup Framelits #143745 and stamped the sleeve using the Merry Cafe #144965 photopolymer stamp set.  To complete the card, I hand cut pumpkins from a piece of the painted harvest DSP.

A little bit Country

When I received the invitation to my cousins wedding, I knew that I was going to make a card for the lovely bride and groom to match the invite.  I used the Wood Textures DSP #144177 as the background and then had cut the antlers.  Once I had the antlers in place, I cut a sunflower out of a piece of the Stampin Up Painted Autumn DSP #144613 and then I added the hand cut roses and a mini tag with Mr and Mrs tied with a wee little linen bow.  To complete the card, I added the embossed sentiment.

Congrats Brad and Steph! The wedding was gorgeous and a beautiful evening.

Delightful Birthday

2017_09_28IMG_2590Today’s post is another CASE (Copy And Share Everything) from page 80 of the Stampin Up 2017-2018 annual catalog.  I used scraps of leftover pieces from the Delightful Daisy DSP #144137 and the Wood Textures DSP #144177 to create the layered background.  I added a floral embellishment from the Bunch of Blossoms #141573 stamp set and the coordinating Blossoms Builder #141469 punch. I wrapped a piece of the 1/4 ” Copper Trim before adding the oval with the birthday sentiment from the Cool Treats #142982 stamp set.

Thanks A Latte

2017_09_27IMG_2594 Today’s post is one from my recent CASE (Copy and Share Everything) class.  I used the Stampin Up annual catalog on page 30 to design my card.  The paper is from the fabulous Coffee Break #144155 DSP.  I used the Coffee Cafe stamp set #143677 and the coordinating Coffee Cups Framelits #143745 to complete this fantastic thank you card for any coffee lover.

Quick and Bold

2017_09_26IMG_2600 Lately the trend has been to stamp a bold font directly onto a patterned paper.   So I decided to try it using the now retired Botanicals For You (now retired) font directly on a piece of the Delightful  Daisy DSP #137547.  I added a piece of coordinating ribbon to finish the look on page 80 of the Stampin Up annual catalog.

HO X 3

2017_09_25IMG_2455It’s already the 25th of the month so that means time for a Christmas post.  I went with a traditional color scheme with lots of layers and textures.  I started out with red base and used the Softly Falling #139672 TIEF from Stampin Up to texture the base layer.  I added an emerald envy green layer textured using the Holly TIEF #141634.  The sentiment is from the Greetings from Santa stamp set and layered on a seties of circles from the Stitched Shapes Framelits #141634 and the coordinating Layering Circles Framelits #141705 and finished up with a sweet bow from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit #137547.

Daisy Thanks

2017_09_24IMG_2605 For today’s p ost I used mostly products in the Stampin Up Delightful Daisy product suite.  The background DSP is from the Delightful Daisy DSP #144137.  I also added a strip of black and white polka dot from the now retired Pop of Pink DSP.  I stamped the daisy and leaves using the Daisy Delight #143669 stamp set and then punched it out using the Daisy punch #143713.  The sentiment is from the Daisy Delight onto a hand cut banner and I finished by adding sweet bow from thick bakers twine.
