Diamond in the Rough

2018_02_18IMG_0668edited This card is absolutely stunning features the direct to paper technique for the background.  Cammie made the pile of coal using black cardstock and white gel pen.  She added a great big diamond using Dazzling Diamond Glimmer paper and and the Eclectic Layers Thinlits #143774 and added the silver embossed sentiment from the You’re Priceless #143760 stamp set.

Naturally Eclectic

The Naturally Eclectic DSP from Stampin Up is the star of these 2 cards.  Cammie paired the DSP with the You’re Priceless #143760 photo polymer stamp set and the coordinating Eclectic Layers Thinlits #143774 to create cards for all the priceless gems and jewels in her  life.  These cards  most certainly show  how brilliant they really are!

Picture Perfect Party Hats

2018_02_16IMG_2973 Nothing screams birthday like a great big and bright party hat.  The Stampin Up Picture Perfect DSP #145559 has photographic imagery including party hats, party blowers, cake, donuts, balloons and more on one side and coordinating graphics on the flip side to make you want to party even more!   I trimmed the paper and added three rows of fringed paper that I cut using the fringe scissors.

Hogs and Kisses

2018_02_15IMG_2870 Today’s card is a simple and fun and will surely have the recipient squealing with delight. This  card features the This Little Piggy #143922 Stampin Up stamp set.  Cammie stamped the pig, hand cut it out and popped it onto a square.  She added some of the springs from the Boxwood Wreaths accents #144176.

Bee Mine

2018_02_14IMG_2982 Happy Valentine’s Day.  For today’s card which is my favorite Valentine card I made this year It’s always fun to send punny Valentines and this one is no exception. I made an eclipse style card using the Large Letters Framelits #141712 and the Bubbles and Fizz DSP #147244 from the  Stampin Up Sale-A-Bration catalog. The Bubbles and Fizz DSP is one of many free items you can earn during the Stampin Up annual Sale-A-Bration campaign ongoing now thru March 31st.

To achieve the Eclipse look I cut several layers of letters in black and 1 layer from the Bubbles and Fizz DSP and then stacked them and placed them back in the spot on the card front.  It sounds more confusing than it is.  I then stamped the bees using the Dragonfly Dreams #142924 stamp set and cut them out using the coordinating Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits #142749.  I looked thru all my stamps and found the “Mine” in the now retired Crazy Mixed Up Love stamp set and hand cut a banner to place over a punched heart.  Hope your day is filled with love, flowers and chocolates!

Be My Valentine

2018_02_12IMG_2993 Today’s card is a simple one featuring the gorgeous Painted with Love #145580 DSP from Stampin Up. I stamped the heart from the retired Be My Valentine stamp 2 times and cut out the heart and then cut out the banner and added it to the heart.  To finish I added a little bit of bling sequins to make the card shine.

Heartfelt Love Notes

2018_02_11 I have been receiving My Paper Pumpkin almost from the very beginning and I still get giddy inside when my bright orange box arrives each month.  Usually I stop everything and open up the kit to see whats inside and then make at least a few of the items as designed.  I save some stuff to do alternate designs but this months Valentine kit – Heartfelt Love Notes came at the perfect time for me to have enough valentines to send out.  Yay! I made 14 of the 16 cards as intended and saved the last 2 for something outside the box.

Peek a Boo Heart

2018_02_10IMG_2994 For today’s card, I wanted to showcase the beautiful Painted with Love DSP #145580 so I decided to add a window using the Heart Framelits so that I could show off a coordinating pattern from the Painted with Love collection. I added a sweet little bow leftover from the the January My Paper Pumpkin kit.
