You’re a Cool Treat

2017_05_25IMG_2163 A big birthday shout out to our baby sister Blair. Just because Blair is not only the sweetest girl but also one of the coolest I made this card for her using the products from the Tasty Treats products suite from Stampin Up. The background paper is 2 selections from the Tasty Treats DSP #142770  collection. The ice cream treats were made using the Cool Treats #142982 stamp set and the coordinating Frozen Treats #142756 Framelits.

Here She is…..

2017_05_24IMG_2102 Happy birthday to my favorite pageant loving friend Cathy H.  I hope I made your day complete with your own birthday sash! When I saw the Custom Tee #142916 Stampin Up stamp set complete with a pageant sash I knew it was for you! I used a piece of retired DSP. The focal piece I used the stamped the Custom Tee and then used the coordinating Tshirt Builder Framelits #142754 to cut out the tshirt and the sash! To dress up the tshirt for a frilly pageant style look I cut out a piece from a retired die and laid it over the shirt and cut away the excess to create the perfect top.  I added the tshirt to a square cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits #142754..  May all you pageant dreams come true.

Stamp T

2017_05_23I used this card for my May thank you cards for placing a Stampin Up order. I randomly stamped the image from the now retired Stampin Up Designer Tee stampset. Then used the soon to be retired Custom Tee #142916 and the coordinating Tshirt builder Framelits #142754 to make the Tshirt with cute collar.

Be sure and check out the Stampin Up Retirement List for all the items that will no longer be available after May 31st.  As a bonus some items are even deeply discounted.

You’re Sweet

2017_05_22 The Tasty Treats Specialty DSP #142770 from Stampin Up was used to create this fun and sweet card by layering multiple patterns on on top of one another.  The sentiment from the Cool Treats #142982 stamp set was stamped on a circle cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372. The cute little strawberry was cut using the Frozen Treats Framelits # 142756.

Retro Kitchen tools 2

2017_05_20IMG_2156I have had a lot of fun playing with the Perfect Mix stamp set and paring it with the Succulent Garden DSP (No longer available).  Both items were in the Stampin Up Occasions Catalog and on the retirement list but it looks as if the Succulent Garden DSP has sold out. The background DSP is from the Succulent Garden DSP collection and then I created a strip of crumb cake cardstock and randomly stamped the images from the stamp set and then stamped the mixing bowl and spoon, colored them and hand cut it out and placed it on the card to make a geat birthday card.

The Succulent Garden DSP was on the Retirement List along with  the Perfect Mix stamp set ad other ith a lot of other great products are on the Stampin Up Retirement List and are discounted.  The items on the Retirement List are only available while supplies last or May 31st which ever comes first; so be sure to check it out and order sooner than later!

Custom Tee

2017_05_19IMG_2162 Today’s cards focuses on some of my favorite products from the Stampin Up occasions catalog that are retiring too soon in my humble opinion.  The background is created using 2 patterns of DSP from the Cupcakes and Carousels DSP Paper stack #142744.  The tshirts are stamped using the Custom Tee #142916 stamp set and then cut out using the T-shirt Builder Framelits #142754.  The middle T shirt and the swoosh behind the sentiment were done using the Baby Wipe Technique and the Tie Dyed #143008 and the Work of Art #134111 stamp sets.

Brighter Days to come

2017_05_18IMG_2168Today’s post combines the soon to be retiring Cupcakes and Carousels DSP Paper Stack #142744 with the Beautiful You #143004 stamp set from Stampin Up.  I   combined 3 patterned papers to create the background.  I then stamped the girl with the umbrella on a piece of very vanilla cardstock and then 2 more times on scraps of Cupcakes and Carousels DSP.  I hand cut out the dress and the umbrellas and pieced them back onto the girl on the vanilla cardstock to dress her up like a paper doll.  I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful You on a circle cut with Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372.

Be sure to check out the Stampin Up Retirement List to get some of your must haves before they go away on May 31st.  There are some items that are even on sale so hurry up and place your order.
