Donut birthday

2017_12_04IMG_2893 Happy 17th birthday to my sweet donut loving niece Meredith. I was inspired not only by her love of donuts but a card that my friend Sheri made using Stampin Up punches to make a box of sweet donuts,

Heavy Metal wreath

2017_12_1IMG_2861I made this wreath  using the Stampin Up Leaf Punch #144667 and 3 different metallic papers to form the wreath.  I used the retired ribbon in gold and silver to complement the wreath.  The birthday sentiment was stamped in gold and silver to complete this stunning birthday card.

McYum

2017_11_13IMG_2814 I wish I could take credit for this creative use of the Stampin Up Coffee Cafe Product Suite but I saw this on Pinterest and knew I had to recreate the card for a masculine birthday card. I get a kick out of creative ways to use product other than how they were intended. I started with a piece of DSP from the Coffee Break collection #144155. From there I just went to town stamping images from the Coffee Cafe  #143677 stamp set and the coordinating Coffee Cups Framelits #143745 and assembled my burger, fries, and drink.

Be Creative Everyday

2017_11_12IMG_2575 I love the sentiment on this card and have made that my mantra.  For this card, I used a piece of the Wood Textures DSP #144177 to create my crafting surface.  I then stamped the tool container from the Crafting Forever # 143955 Stampin Up stampset.  Once I water colored the supplies I hand cut out the tools and placed it on the table and added the sentiment.

The Crafting Forever is a fun set  that will remind you how much you love stoking your creative fires.

This Little Piggy

2017_11_11IMG_0585 Cammie started out creating the background of today’s card with a touch of water color using the Watercolor Wash #138704 background stamp.  She then stamped and hand cut out the flying  pigs from the This Little Piggy #143919 Satmpin Up stamp set.  She scattered the sentiment about to create a card that is sure to make the recipient squeal with delight!

Wine Not celebrate

2017_11_8IMG_2855 Happy birthday to my oldest friend, Kim.  By old I mean the friend I have known the longest (plus she is older than me by a few months) -45 years but really who’s counting?  When I saw the sentiment in the Stampin Up Half Full #144996 stamp set from Stampin Up I knew I had to have it. For this card I pulled out my Copic Markers, although the new Stampin Up Stampin Blends would work well too, to  color the images to make this card.

Color Theory Card Pack

2017_11_04IMG_2685 I recently had a Color Theory workshop and this is one of the cards using the Color Theory Card Pack #144210 from the Stampin Up Memories and More collection. I started the card with a piece of the Color Theory DSP Stack #144193 and then added 2 of the cards from the Color Theory Card Pack and a doily.  The sentiment is from the Colorful Seasons #145348 stamp set.  It is great how all these products work so well together and make card making a snap!
