Southwestern Beauty

2019_04_30IMG_0909 Today’s post is a real beauty that Cammie created featuring the Flowering Desert #148700 Stampin Up stamp set.  I especially love this card because I am in awe of the saguaro cactus.

Butterfly Beauty


For Today’s post it is all about the Butterfly Beauty #151819 Thinlit from Stampin Up.  I cut both pieces and and adhered them together.  For the background, I added a piece of the Botanical Butterfly DSP (retired) and a frame created using the Rectangle Stitched Thinlits #148551 and then added the butterfly piece.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings #146667 to create this beautiful card.

Part of My Story

2019_04_28IMG_4349 Today’s card is a simple design that showcases the now retired Botanical Butterfly DSP.  For the sentiment, I combined the Part of My Story (retired) stamp set with the Well Written #148534 on to a Stitched Shapes (Retired) circle and a Scallop Circle Framelit mat.

Amazing Life Note Pad

2019_04_27IMG_4344 During the purging process of my craft studio I uncovered a lot of treasures.  I found several blank note pads and decided to use the Amazing Life #148750 Stampin Up stamp set to decorate all the sides of the note pad.  I just stamped the images and then used the Stampin Write markers to color in the flowers.

I also found these bare fry containers that I used to decorate for my friend who loves Cheez-its.  I used the Amazing Life stamp set2019_04_27IMG_4346and then modified it to add my hand written banner. I added  a butterfly from the Butterfly Beauty #151819 Thinlits.  I added a bag of cheez-its and tied with ribbon for the perfect packaging.

Alpine Christmas

2019_04_25IMG_3790 For today’s Christmas card, I started out using a piece of the retired Festive Farmhouse DSP from Stampin Up.  I added a Stitched Shapes Circle (retired) to anchor the die cut sled and wreath from the Alpine Thinlits (retired) and the coordinating Alpine Adventures (retired) stamp set for the sentiment.

So Happy You’re in My Life

2019_04_23IMG_4336 I love the big bold sentiment in the Amazing Life #147136 that I simply just paired it with a strip of paper from the Happiness Blooms DSP #148795 from Stampin Up.

Hoppin By

2019_04_21IMG_4416 Just Hoppin by to wish everyone a Happy Easter.  Today’s Easter card is my favorite of the 4 designs I made this year and it features bunnies punched using the Bunny Builder Punch #147039 and the Gingham Gala DSP  #148554. The clouds on the base layer were done using the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and the Embossing Paste.  The sentiment, the bunny tails and the grass were stamped using the Best Bunny #147136 stamp set.
