Love Never Melts

2019_01_30MG_3679 When I saw the now retired Spirited Snowman in the Holiday Catalog I knew I was going to use it for my one of my Valentine designs.  I used some other retired products to accent the love theme.

Natures Poem

2019_01_29 Today’s post features the Nature’s Poem DSP #146338 from Stampin Up.  I stamped the feathers  with the now retired Making Every Day Bright stamp set , colored them with Stampin Write Markers then added a piece Striped Burlap.  The sentiment is from the Country Home #147678 stamp set onto a coordinating piece of DSP and then cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372 and a few extra feathers punched using the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch.

2019_01_28MG_3575 I used the Tropical Chic #146277 stamp set and the Tropical Chic Thinlits #146831 from Stampin Up in a non tropical way to create this lovely sympathy card.  The sentiment is from the now retired Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

Put on a Party Hat

2019_01_26IMG_3890 I have been into using up my DSP lately to make cards with minimal stamping.  I used the cheerful Broadway Bound DSP #145372 from Stampin Up to create this fun birthday card.  I added a pennant cut from a retired framelit and added a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings #146664 stamp set.

Happy Christmas

2019_01_25IMG_3783 It’s the first 25th of 2019 so that means its Christmas card posting time! Today’s card uses all retired Stampin Up products including the gold edge card base and the beautiful All is Bright DSP.  I added a doily and and a Stitched Shapes circle #145372 Framelits with the Happy cut from the now retired Merry Christmas Thinlits.  I also used the coordinating Merry Christmas (retired) stamp set for the Christmas Sentiment.  For the pop of color, I added the holly stamped with the Spirited Snowman (retired) and real red rhinestones.

Nailed It

2019_01_24IMG_2236 I needed a masculine card for a kid who just graduated from college and got a job as a contractor in the building industry in Columbus.  I pulled out my now retired Nailed It stamp set from Stampin Up and created this fun card.

Eclectic Layering

2019_01_23 This card blew me away when I received it from a customer.  This card is full of texturing using the Eclectic Layering Thinlits #143774 from Stampin Up.  What is so fun is the coral floral section was creating by making a mask using the Eclectic Thinlits and then she filled in the mask with colored embossing paste that had been colored with a few drops of calyso coral reinkers. She added other embellishments from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  This card inspired me to order the embossing paste #141979 from Stampin Up.

Piece of Cake

2019_01_22IMG_3892 Today’s post is a quick and easy one with minimal stamping.  I used multiple patterns from the Stampin Up Broadway Bouund #146277 DSP collection to create the background.  I fussy cut a piece of cake from the paper and popped it using Stampin Dimensionals.  I added the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings #146667 stamp set.
