Tutti-Frutti Quilt

2018_04_30The Tutti-Frutti DSP #145606 from Stampin Up just makes me smile.  I used it to make a quilt style card just simply by using all the fruity papers with the Stitched Shapes #141708.  The sentiment is from the coordinating Fruit Basket #145833 stampset.

Double Wine

Its funny how sisters think alike,  Today’s post are two cards created by both Cammie (card on the right) and I using the Half Full #144996 Stampin Up stamp set.  We worked on these independently but they ended up with the same color scheme and layouts. Cammie added more detail to her banners using the now retired Gourd Goodness and Glad Tidings stamp sets.  Her leaves were cut using the Seasonal Layers #143751 Thinlits while mine were stamped using the Painted Harvest #144783 and punched with the Leaf Punch #144667.

Fun Fold Apron card

I used 2 of my favorite products in the Stampin Up Occasions catalog:  The Apron Builder Bundle #145986 and the Tutti-Frutti DSP #145606.  The good news is both the Apron Builder Framelits and the Apron of Love stamp sets will be carried over in the 2018=2019 Stampin Up catalog debuting on June 1st.  For this card, I made an apron into a card that opens and the kiwi panel also opens so that you can add a  note on the inside.

Bottle cap fun

2018_04_27IMG_3170 Today’s card is a simple and clean design featuring the retired Bubbles and Fizz DSP from Stampin Up and the Bottles and Bubbles Framelits #145663.  The bottle and the bottle cap accent were cut out from the DSP using the matching framelits.  I added the sentiment cut using the Celebrate You Framelits which were available during Stampin Up Sale-a-Bration but will be carried in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.

Tutti-Frutti Birthday

2018_04_26IMG_3121 I really liked the Tutti-Frutti #145606 DSP from the Stampin Up Occasions catalog but it will soon be retiring along with the Fruit Basket#145833 stamp set  and the coordinating Itty Bitty Fruit Punch  Pack #145657. I used all three products to create today’s card.  This card was fun to make and really reminds me of slot machines in a casino of which I am never a winner!

Picture Perfect Christmas

2018_04_25IMG_3151 In order for me to keep up with sending hand made Christmas cards to all my family and friends, I make an appoint to come up with at least one design per month and I make at least 8 of each design.  Today’s Christmas post (because it is the 25 th of the month) features the Picture Perfect Birthday #145519 stamp set from the Occasions catalog in traditional Christmas colors.  The bows on the base piece were stamped using the new Stamparatus tool that will be available for purchase in the new 2019-2019 Stampin Up annual catalog.  The bow in the middle row was stamped and then hand cut out.

Apron Craze

2018_04_24IMG_3096 I have gone wild with the Stampin Up Apron Of Love stamp set and coordinating Apron Builder Framelit #145661.  With this Apron I embossed it with the Stampin Up Logo from the now retired Workshop Words stamp set and then filled the pocket with tools from the Crafting Forever #143955 and other scraps.  I used the fabulous Painted With Love DSP #145580.

Creative Apron

2018_04_23IMG_3081 I have had so much fun creating aprons with the Apron Builder #145661 Framelit,  I used retired Sending Love DSP for the background and the apron pocket.  I embossed the sentiment from the Crafting Forever #143958 stamp set.  The Apron Builder Framelits and the coordinating Apron of Love stamp set will be carried over in the new 2018-2019 Stampin Up annual catalog beginning on June 1st.

Panda-monium

2018_04_21IMG_3035 Happy 60th birthday to our sister and my Stampin Up Upline Cammie!! For today’s post, I cut thin strips from the Color Theory DSP #144193 to look like bamboo and then added the adorable pandas from the now retired Party Pandas stampset.   I love this card because it reminds me the wall paper from my childhood bedroom.
