Botanical Butterflies

2019_05_20IMG_4374 I am clearing out some of my retired DSP to make room for all the new papers coming with the new Stampin Up catalog.  Today’s post is all about the retired Botanical Butterfly DSP.  I used 3 patterns from the collection for each of these cards even the butterflies were punched out from the DSP using the Butterfly Duet punch #148523.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings #146667 stamp set.

2019_05_19IMG_0925Today’s card has a lot of layers and features the soon to be retiring stamp sets 25 Again #146435 and Artisan Textures #148534 from Stampin Up. The focal panel is placed on top of a pearlized doily. The main panel is textured with the Oh My Stars  Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Hippo Thanks

2019_05_18IMG_3907 I have a real thing for patterned paper and I think Stampin Up’s 2018-2019 paper collection was one of the best yet and I am sad to say good bye to most of the DSP.  I used the heck out of the already sold out  animal expedition DSP.  I added the sentiment from the Animal Outing Stamp set onto a stitched circle.

A great BIG birthday

2019_05_17IMG_4358 I will be sad to see the Large Letters #141712 dies to retire once the new catalog debuts in June.  I paired them with the Birthday Cheer stamp set #148604 which is also going away as is the How Sweet It Is DSP #148568.  I added the birthday sentiment cut from the Well Written dies #148534 to create a very Happy birthday card.

Geared up for the beach

2019_05_16IMG_0936 Cammie’s card combines the Geared Up Stampin Up product suite with the Beach Happy stamp #148585 set to create a very fun masculine card.  She started with a piece of the now sold out Classic Garage DSP and then added the gear layer cut from the Garage Gears Dies #151812.  The focal panel uses the direct to paper technique to create the gorgeous skyline and then stamped the palm tree from the Beach Happy stamp set. The card was stamped using the Geared Up Garage #148590 stamp set and the custom paint job was accomplished using the Stampin Blends and Chalk Marker,

Happiness Blooms Shaker card

2019_05_15IMG_4440 For today I wanted to shake things up a bit by creating a shaker card using the Happiness Blooms Memories and More Cards #148531 from Stampin Up. For the sentiment inside the card I even cut one of the cards into strips. I also included flowers punched with the sold out bloom punches and sequins.
