Creative Day

2019_04_19IMG_4342 Today’s post is probably the favorite of the cards that I made Cammie for her upcoming birthday.  I textured the card front using the Tufted Embossing Folder #146335.  I then cut a window with the circle using the Layering Circle Framelits # 141705 and then layered scraps of ribbon underneath the card front.  I used the Crafting Forever #143958 stamp set to stamp, color and hand cut out the pot of tools.  The sentiment is also from the Crafting Forever stamp set stamped onto a Stitched Shape.

Best Bunny

2019_04_18IMG_4424 Today’s card is the third Easter card I designed this year and it features the Painted Seasons DSP that is no longer available from Stampin Up. The base layer is textured using the Basket Weave #146841 Embossing Folder.  I added a Stitched Shapes (discontinued) Circle to use as an anchor for the bunny punched from the Bunny Builder Punch #147039.  Behind the circle I added the stems cut from the Well Written dies #148534.  The sentiment is stamped from the Itty Bitty Greetings # 146667.

Bunny Trio

2019_04_17IMG_4421 For today’s card I simply stamped the images from the now retired Basket Bunch stamp set from Stampin Up.  I colored the bunnies with copic markers, hand cut them out and popped them on the stamped grass. I added a few flower sequins and stamped the greeting from the now retired Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Carrot Wreath

2019_04_16IMG_4419 For today’s Easter card, I finally broke down and bought the wreath template from Gina K.  The template and the Stampin Up stamparatus make creating a wreath super easy and the elements are perfectly spaced! I used the images from the retired Stampin Up sets -Basket Bunch and Painted Season.  For the center bunny I used the Best Bunny 147136 and the coordinating Bunny Builder Punch #147039. To finish the Easter  card, I added a piece of the Gingham Gala # 148554 and a piece of coordinating SAB ribbon.

Jungle celebration

2019_04_15IMG_087446916 To set the scene for today’s card Cammie used the giraffe print die from the Animal Friends #146823 Dies from Stampin Up. She also added a strip of DSP from the Tropical Escape DSP #146916.  Cammie then used the Animal Expedition DSP #146902 to die cut the giraffe and also hand cut out the cute little frog. The leaves were cut using the Animal Friends dies and the sentiment is from the Picture Perfect Birthday #146916 stamp set.

Life is Grand

Today’s post is the same design just used different colors to showcase the Gingham Gala DSP #148554 from Stampin Up.  I love that the focal piece allows both patterns of gingham patterned paper.  The butterflies were punched out of the Botanical Butterfly DSP (retired) using the Butterfly Duet #148523. The sentiment is from the Life is Grand #148523 stamp set.
