Christmas In July 2018

2018_07_21MG_1621 I am kicking off Christmas in July week by posting Christmas cards. For today’s card I went vintage Christmas by pulling out a piece of the now retired Season of Cheer DSP from Stampin Up.  I fussy cut out the poinsettias and tucked them beneath the label with the Christmas sentiment.

Birthday Bows

2018_07_20MG_2961 Today’s post is another example of the power of the paper! This retired Picture Perfect Party DSP screams birthday so no other accents are needed.  I added the textured layer with the Simple Stripes #145648 Textured Impressions Embossing Folder beneath the DSP panel and then layered the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday #145519 stamp set.

Statement of the Heart

2018_07_19_IMG_3453 I made this card for a dear friend and Stampin Up customer who like me loves all things Stampin Up so I decided to use new products from the Stampin Up 2018-2019 annual catalog and make her an easel card to display on her mantle.  The beautiful paper is from the Share what You Love DSP Collection #146926. The sentiment is from the Statement of My Heart #148108. I personalized her name and added flowers by stamping them with the Make A Difference # 146676 alphabet stamp set.  To add even more elegance to the card I added the Share What You Love Artisian pearls #146927 to the centers of the flowers and the dotted i!

So many candles

2018_07_16IMG_2956 I am truly loving my posts this month featuring cards using mostly pretty papers from Stampin Up.  The now retired Picture Perfect DSP paper says it all for today’s card. I stamped the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday #145519 stamp set directly onto the patterned paper.

A Girl’s Best Friend

The main reason that I bought the Eclectic Layers Thinlits #143774 from Stampin up was for the diamond shape so I could make engagement and wedding cards.  Today’s cards show case 2 versions of the diamond using the glimmer paper.  The background paper is from the now retired Painted with Love collection and was perfect for the diamond ring.
