Simple Detail Floral

2017_06_09IMG_2182 I used the Detailed Floral Thinlits #141482 to show case the new Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, the 1/2 inch Finely Woven Ribbon#144135, and the Itty Bitty Felt bows #144217 from the new 2017-2018 Stampin Up annual catalog.  I added a flower stamped using the Bunch of Blossoms #141573 stamp set and punched using the coordinating Blossom Builder Punch #141469.

Happy Dance

2017_05_31IMG_2137 Well today marks the last day to get Stampin Up items from the Stampin Up 2016-2027 annual catalog and the occasions catalog.  For this card I used the Cupcakes and Carousels DSP #141587 and stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful You #143004 stamp set.  I stamped the dancer on a square cut Stitched Shapes Framelits and matted it with a bigger scalloped square.

Be sure to check out the Stampin Up Retirement List for any thing you have been thinking of getting because after today those items will be gone forever.

One in A Dozen

2017_05_16IMG_2158  I have been having a lot of fun with combining the patterned papers in the Succulent Garden DSP #142778 paper collection.  I used a piece of retired ribbon to serve as a barrier to the 2 busy patterned papers.  I stamped the image from the Perfect Mix #142933 onto  a piece of the Watercolor paper and then colored the image with ink and an aqua painter pen.  I cut the focal piece with the Layering Ovals Framelits #141706 from Stampin Up.

The Succulent Garden and the Perfect Mix stamp set along with 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.

I added the mixer from the Perfect Mix # 142933 stamp set on to a Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372 square and matted with the  Layering Squares Framelits #141708.  I colored the mixer with Stampin Write markers.

Lava You

2017_02_11img_0484

Today’s post is a wild, crazy and quite groovy retro post that Cammie came up with for Valentine’s Day. She started out by texturing the real red cardstock with the new Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #142761.  She used the Tie Dyed # 143008 stampset to create her own DSP and then cut out the border using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits #141497 and punched out the lava lamp using a variety of punches.  Cammie got real creative with the sentiment by combining the love and congrats from the Sunshine Wishes #141489 to make her lava word.

Today’s post is a throwback to a favorite retired Stampin Up stamp set-Painted Petals .  The Painted Petals set allows you to create layering without creating excess  using the images of the stamps.
