Color Theory Blossoms

2017_10_16IMG_2686 For today’s card, I was drawn to the card in the Stampin Up annual catalog on page 146 featuring the Color Theory DSP #144210 and the Seasonal Layers Thinlits #143751.  Love this product suite and the DSP.

This little piggy

2017_10_11IMG_0584I squealed with excitement when I saw how cute this card turned out featuring the This Little Piggy #143919 Stampin Up stamp set.  Cammie was not “aFrayed” to start off by creating a burlap layer using the Burlap #143982 background stamp. The frayed edges and rustic image will set the tone  with the look and texture of burlap without the weird smell of old potato sacks! She then created the focal panel using her masterful brayering skills and completed the card with the birthday greeting cut using the Happy Birthday Thinlits #143700.

Hooray it’s your day

2017_10_08IMG_2638 I love simple layouts for my card designs and this one is a classic layout that packs a whole lotta punch. I used the a strip of the Merry Little Christmas DSP #144621 and added  a thin daffodil strip just beneath to make it pop. I hand cut the sunflowers from the Painted Autumn DSP # 144613 from Stampin Up and then added a black mat and re-cut them out again.  I added the sentiment  to a double matted Stitched Shapes Framelits #144613.

Delightful Birthday

2017_09_28IMG_2590Today’s post is another CASE (Copy And Share Everything) from page 80 of the Stampin Up 2017-2018 annual catalog.  I used scraps of leftover pieces from the Delightful Daisy DSP #144137 and the Wood Textures DSP #144177 to create the layered background.  I added a floral embellishment from the Bunch of Blossoms #141573 stamp set and the coordinating Blossoms Builder #141469 punch. I wrapped a piece of the 1/4 ” Copper Trim before adding the oval with the birthday sentiment from the Cool Treats #142982 stamp set.
