Hand Delivered Graduation

2018_09_30IMG_3481 I simply love the Hand Delivered Hostess Stamp set #146808 from the Stampin Up Annual Catalog.  Today  I used it to make a graduation card.  Yes I fussy cut the pile of books and added them with Stampin dimensionals to make it look like a more realistic load.   The background paper is from the Share What You Love DSP Specialty #146926 paper collection from Stampin Up.

Starbucks Anyone?

Book folding has  become a passion for me and believe it or not it requires little supplies and is much easier than it looks! Recently I made this book fold book for my friends birthday who loves Starbucks.  I even covered the book with a Starbucks bag.  As I folded each fold I wondered if the Starbucks logo had a meaning.  Turns out, in 1971, Starbucks (then a mere fledging coffee shop on the Seattle waterfront) was looking for a logo, something that would embody the seafaring history of its home city. … Heckler “pored over old marine books until he came up with a logo based on an old 16th-century Norse woodcut: a two-tailed mermaid.”  So now you know!

Left over Blueberries


Today’s post is a card made using the left over embellishments from the Picnic Paradise My Paper Pumpkin kit.  It is so fun to stretch the My Paper Pumpkin kits by coming up with alternative designs.

That’s a wrap

2018_09_27IMG_3134 I made the cutest gift bag using now retired Tutti- Frutti DSP from Stampin Up and the fabulous Apron Builder Framelits #145661.  Its hard to see but I used the Apron of Love stamp set to randomly stamp images on the tissue paper.

Open the Door

Show someone that your door is always open for Christmas and any other time of year by using the Barn Door #145862 stamp set and coordinating Sliding Door Framelits #145662 from Stampin Up. For added texture I opted to add the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to give it a more rustic feel.

Tis the Season

2018_09_24IMG_3521 Another fun Christmas card using the Under the Mistletoe DSP #146921 from Stampin Up.  In fact I used all 12 patterns on 1 card by just using a little piece punched with the Classic Label #141491 punch.  I textured the card base using the now retired Pine Bough Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The tree was punched using a retired punch and I added a small piece of the Leaf Ribbon #146905 and the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings #146667 stamp set fits perfectly in a classic label punch.
