Creative Day

2019_04_19IMG_4342 Today’s post is probably the favorite of the cards that I made Cammie for her upcoming birthday.  I textured the card front using the Tufted Embossing Folder #146335.  I then cut a window with the circle using the Layering Circle Framelits # 141705 and then layered scraps of ribbon underneath the card front.  I used the Crafting Forever #143958 stamp set to stamp, color and hand cut out the pot of tools.  The sentiment is also from the Crafting Forever stamp set stamped onto a Stitched Shape.

Gala Butterflies

2019_04_13IMG_4126 For today’s card I started out with the Lace Dynamic embossing folder # 148530 and then added a strip of Botanical Butterfly DSP (retired) from Stampin Up.  For the butterflies. I stamped the image I used the Butterfly Gala #148580 and the coordinating Butterfly Duet punch #148523.  The sentiment is from the Meant to Be #148626 stamp set.  I added a piece of the Sale- a- Bration ribbon that is no longer available to complete this all purpose card.

Dont Worry Beach Happy

2019_04_10IMG_0895 Today’s post is a true beauty with lots of layering and textures.  Cammie began by texturing the background with the retired embossing folder.  For the focal panel Cammie used the Rectangle Stitched Dies to create her beach scene.  The beach scene was created using the Artisan Textures #146570 and the Beach Happy #148585 stamp sets.

Happy Birthday to my amazing husband who has been by my side through thick and thin.  These cards are my alternatives to the Feb Grown with Kindness My Paper Pumpkin kit.

Simple Stamping

Stampin Up has been promoting simple stamping to make cards.  Just a stamp set, ink and cardstock.  I took this challenge to heart and creating my beautiful flight of butterflies featuring the Butterfly Gala #148580 stamp set.   I was so happy with the result!

Let’s get together soon

2019_04_07IMG_3954 Today’s card is one that really makes me happy.  I recently retired from my civil service job of nearly 35 years so I send this card to a few retired friends so we could get together to catch up.  This card features one of my favorite Stampin Up stamp sets -Love You to Pieces# 148394 and the coordinating Puzzle Pieces framelits #146493. I used the All My Love DSP #148576 as the background for this card.
