Hello Sailor

2018_07_30IMG_1248 I was clearing out my retired Stampin Up DSP and came across this very old paper but new it was perfect for a new baby card and to showcase how wonderful it is to combine various patterned paper from the Stampin Up collections.

Lovely Fun Fold

Todays card is a fun  fold card featuring the now Retired Whole Lotta Lovely DSP from Stampin up. I added the sentiment from the now retired Thoughtful Branches stamp set.  The sentiment was added to an oval cut from the Stitched Shapes and matted with a scallop oval.  I then cut a flower out from the DSP to add even more beauty from the gorgeous DSP.

Feeling Blue

2018_07_28IMG_3440 I always struggle when it comes to making sympathy cards but when I saw these 2 gorgeous patterns in the Garden Impressions DSP #146289 from Stampin Up I decided it was perfect for a sympathy card.  I added the sentiment using the Make A Difference #146676 stamp set #146676.

Christmas Big Reveal

2018_07_25 I finally took advantage of the Stampin Up Buy 3 get 1 Free DSP sale and the box arrived with the beautiful new Under the Mistletoe DSP #146921 from Stampin Up. The paper is festive, traditional, dynamic patterns for your holiday projects but I chose to mimic or CASE (Copy and Share Everything) card from page 103 of the Stampin Up 2018-2019 annual catalog.  I paired the paper with the Labels To Love # 144970 stamp set and the coordinating Everyday Label Punch #144668.

Christmas Fun Fold

It would not be Christmas in July without at least one of Cammie’s Christmas cards using mostly DSP.  Cammie chose to do a fun fold card using the now retired Christmas Around the World DSP.  The sentiment is stamped from on the Snowflake Sentiments #144817 stamp set from Stampin Up onto the Tailored Tag #145667 punched piece on the handle. The handle lifts over and reveals the sentiment beneath.

Dreaming of a BW Christmas

2018_07_23IMG_3242 I love a black and white cards even at Christmas time.  Adding a pop of color (Old Olive) to this classic but retired Merry Little Christmas DSP from Stampin Up created a very fun Christmas card and using up old Christmas paper makes room for new Christmas  paper in the 2018-2019 Stampin Up Annual catalog and the soon to be released Holiday Catalog.  Speaking of the Stampin Up annual catalog be sure to check out the DSP Paper sale on going at Stampin Up.

Simple Joys of Christmas

2018_07_22IMG_3387 I hand make over 150 Christmas cards each season and make lots of different designs.  I try and make some simple ones because I make so many and today’s post is one of my simple designs using the now retired Foil Frenzy DSP from Stampin Up and wrapped the coordinating taffeta ribbon and tied a nice bow.  I added the foil snowflake and stamped the image from the Christmas Pines #142049 stamp set.  Once I complete the design I cut and prepare at least 3 more cards so that come Christmas time my cards are ready to address and get in the mail.

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.
