Musical Season

2018_02_25IMG_0666 I thought this card posted but it somehow got hung up duirng my flu crisis so I am posting it late. It’s already past the 25th of the month so that means it’s time for a Christmas card post.  Today’s card is one that Cammie made using all retired products from the 2017 Stampin Up Holiday catalog.  She started with a Tranquil Tide card base and added a piece of the Merry Music DSP.  For the sentiment panel, Cammie featured the Musical Season stamp set and then cut the French horn using the Musical Instruments Framelits.

Life is Beachy

2018_01_28IMG_0663  Just trying to think warm thoughts living vicariously through Cammie’s beautiful beach scene cards using the So Many Shells #143695.  This card is perfect for Cammie’s first winter in Galveston where snow is unheard of!  The sentiment is from the now retired Stampin Up Beachy Little Christmas stamp set.

Bring On the Snow

2018_01_26IMG_2689 This winter in Columbus has been cold and snowy and I am ready for warm weather.  Until then, I guess it will continue to snow so I embraced it with today’s post using  the Stampin Up Memories and More Color Theory Card Pack #144210 to create this simple card.  The Color Theory Card Pack contains 52 Double Sided cards that are intended to be used for scrapbooking and memory making.  The 4″ X 6 ” cards are perfect for creating card fronts  and combining with other coordinating supplies to create a quick and easy card. I added a smaller card and a few clusters of snowflakes cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits #143751 complete with bling centers.

Smitten with Coffee

2018_01_13IMG_2927 Before putting away my Christmas stamps and dies I decided to make a few winter themed birthday cards using the Christmas products.  I started off by texturing the background with the now retired Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from Stampin Up.  I also cut the mittens from the now retired Many Mittens Framelits that are perfect for holding a warm cup of coffee or hot chocolate cut from the Wood Textures DSP #144177 using the Coffee Cups Framelits #143745.  The sentiment came from the now retired Smitten stamp set.
