To Market To market

2015_10_12IMG_9003

Sometimes the Stampin Up paper is just too pretty to cover up.  For today’s post this Farmers Market DSP #138448 speaks for itself and can stand alone to make a beautiful card.  I just added a piece of ribbon and a layered element using the retired Homegrown stampset.  This card was one of many simple Farmers Market cards.

English Garden Happy day

2015_09_29IMG_9081

When I need a quick card, I like to pull out pretty Stampin Up DSP and work some magic.  The Stampin Up English Garden DSP #138440 collection has beautiful colors and floral design that it is the star of today’s card. The English Garden paper  the English Garden DSP can easily stand on its own – lending any card instant color and charm.  I added a piece of satin ribbon to soften the paper even more and added a simple sentiment.

Classic Butterflies

2015_09_27IMG_9090

The Stampin Up Watercolor Wings #139424 two step stamp set makes making butterflies a snap.  I paired the Watercolor Wings with the Bold Butterflies #138135 Framelits.  The butterflies were adhered to the Textured Brick Wall background and the sentiment is from the watercolor wings stamp set that I hand cut into a banner.

English Garden DSP

2015_09_22IMG_9096 When I am in a design funk, and need a card I often turn to a pack of Stampin Up DSP and combine 2 patterns.  For today’s card, I used the beautiful English Garden DSP # 138440 from Stampin Up.  I added a piece of whisper white ribbon to hide the seam and added an layered accent using the retired doily and other punches. Simple and sweet cards can start and end with beautiful DSP.

Fluttering Tunnel card

2015_09_20IMG_9099For today’s post I wanted to create a tunnel card.  The card base is whisper white and textured with the Stampin Up Fluttering Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, TIEF,#139304.  I added a piece of retired scallops dot ribbon to anchor the butterfly to.  The butterfly was stamped with the Stampin Up Watercolor wings stamp set #139424 and cut with the coordinating Butterflies Thinlits die #137360.  The Watercolor Wings  Photopolymer Stamp Set makes making classic butterflies even better using a two set stamp set that allow you to overlay images that you can combine over the base image. Using colors and images you want to create the butterflies you want with endless possibilities.  The Butterflies Thinlits dies is on clearance this week so be sure to check out the Stampin Up weekly deals

The outside of the tunnel card is the classic card but when opened up the tunnel is created.For the hole, I used the Stampin Up Oval #129381 and added a lacy butterfly cut using the Bold Butterfies #138135 framelits2015_09_20IMG_9100.

Brick Wall climbers

2015_09_17IMG_0049

Today’s post is truly awesome and with all the detail this card looks realistic. The background is the fabulous Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, TIEF, #138288.  Cammie did a fantastic job sponging the grout and adding texture with the Gorgeous Grunge Stampset #130514. She made a trellis using the now retired Lattice Die.  The flowers were stamped using the Stampin Up Awesomely Artistic #138694 stampset. Cammie colored them, handcut out each cluster and added them to the trellis to create this divine all occasion card.

Silver Lining

2015_09_16IMG_9093

The Stampin Up Sprinkle of Life #139971 photoplymer stamp set is the main feature for today’s post. This set sprinkles positive thoughts wherever you want and is chock-full of positivity that you’ll want to share with everyone. As an added bonus for each Sprinkles of Life set sold
Stampin’ Up! donates time and money to support Ronald McDonald House Charities. To date we’ve contributed over $1,000,000 to RHMC and their network of local RMHC Chapters. When you buy the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set, we donate a portion of the proceeds to RMHC.

For the background DSP, I used a piece of the Cherry on Top Designers Series paper stack #138443. I stamped clouds and raindrops on the main panel and punched the cloud using the coordinating Tree Builder Punch #138295. The sentiment is stamped on a scrap piece of pool party cardstock and hand cut into a banner.
