So Much to Love

2018_08_17IMG_3437 Today’s card is all about Abstract Impressions for creating a card with a lasting impression.  I paired the Garden Impressions #146289 DSP with the Abstract Impressions #147513 stamp set from Stampin Up to make a card with a statement.

BFF treats

2018_08_16IMG_3129 The Tiny Treat Acrylic Treat boxes  #141699 from Stampin Up make the cutest quick and easy gifts for any occasion.  I made this one for a friend in need of some lovin.  I simply wrapped a strip of paper (now retired Tutti – Frutti) around the box.  I filled the box with fruity Mike and Ikes and then wrapped a coordinating ribbon around the box and tied it with a bow.  I added the sentiment from the Apron of Love #145835 stamp set from Stampin Up and had a perfect treat.

Eclectic Leftovers

2018_08_15IMG_3389 Today’s post is is a simple card that I made using leftover pieces had laying around on my table and decided to use them on a card rather than pitching them out.  Since the leftover pieces were cut from the Eclectic Layers #143774 Thinlits from Stampin Up, I used the mosaic piece to cuet the window from the layer and used a scrap of the now retired Naturally Eclectic DSP behind the panel and then added the floral and leaf embellishments.  The sentiment is from a Paper Pumpkin stamp set and stamped on a Pretty Label #143715 punched piece.  I think I did a fine job creating a treasure from what would have been trash.

More Nautical Fun

I really got a lot of  “Nautical” mileage from the April 2018 You’re My Anchor My Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin Up.  Today’s post are 2 alternated designs using the stamps to create the backgrounds and then the rest of the cards are done using leftover paper and elements from the kit.

Share What You Love Florals

2018_08_13IMG_3420 The Floral papers in the Share What You Love #146926  Specialty DSP collection from Stampin Up.  I especially love this piece of the handpainted flowers in the blue greens,  For this card, I used lots of layering card stocks (tranquil tide, mint macron and white)to bring out the rich colors of from the floral piece.  The Mint Macron layer was textured using the Layered Leaves #143704 Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. For the sentiment I stamped the image from the Picture Perfect Birthday #145519 stamp set onto a Stitched Shapes #145372 piece and I added a piece of Tranquil Tide ribbon to add a little texture to an otherwise simple layout.

Blue Moon

2018_08_12IMG_0719 Cammie created the marble looking background using the Stampin Up Brusho Crystals # 144101.  The Brusho Watercolor ink crystals are sprinkledthem directly on water-washed paper and watch the colors burst to form unique and gorgeous looks.  For the focal panel Cammie put her sponging skills to work along with the Waterfront # 144101 to create this tranquil beach scene.
