A lighthouse

2017_06_14IMG_0501 Who doesn’t love a lighthouse? Do you hear the beach calling your name? It sounds a lot like what you hear when the Stampin Up High Tide #143006 stampset is calling to you.Do you hear the beach calling your name? It sounds a lot like what you hear when these stamps are calling to you. Cammie answered all the calls with this one.  She brayered the background and then added the sand and lighthouse from the High Tide stamp set.  The focal panel is mounted on marina mist cardstock textured with the Cable Knit Imperial Embossing Folders #1435337 to complete the nautical look.

In Color Celebration

2017_06_12IMG_2188 I wanted to make a card to showcase all the new In colors (2017-2019) from Stampin Up: Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, and Tranquil Tide.  I used the now retired Botanical Blooms stamp set and coordinating Botanical Builder Framelits  to make a bunch of flowers and leaves.  I used the fabulous new Wood Textures DSP #144177 as the background and added 2 pieces of 5/8 inch Burlap ribbon #141487 to anchor the flowers to.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful You #143004 stamp set to create this bright and beautiful card.

Sending Sunshine

2017_06_11IMG_2184 The Daisy Delight Stamp set and the coordinating Daisy punch available in a Stampin Up Bundle #145361 were my favorite items in the new Stampin Up 2017-2018 catalog.  I must not be alone in that because the Daisy punch is already on back order and unavailable to order until late June.  Oh well, I was able to make this sweet card using the  Daisy Delight bundle.  I textured the background with the Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #141468. I stamped the daisy image directly onto a piece of Delightful Daisy DSP#144137 then cut them in half and layered them and added a 1/2 inch circle Punch #119869. I added the sentiment from the Sunshine Sayings #141591 stamp set.

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.

Gorgeous Girl

2017_06_08IMG_2143 Today’s card is a beautiful card using the Stampin Up Beautiful You #143004 stamp set.  I stamped just part of the girl and then added a hand drawn gown with the Stampin Up Water color pencils #141709.  The whole card is added to a piece of pink glimmer paper.

Oh So Succulent

2017_06_5 Today’s card is a CASE (Copy and Steal Everything) card that I saw on social media.  The card uses all the now retired Stampin Up products from the So Succulent Suite.  The background DSP is from the Succulent Garden DSP collection. The pot was cut using the Layering Circle  Framelits #141705.  The inner circle of dirt was stamped using an image from the High Tide #141705 stamp set. The succulent plants were cut using the Succulent Framelits, then stamped the tips using the image from the Oh So Succulent stamp set. I inked the edges and layered them to make the perfect succulent.

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.
