A Sara Thing

2017_08_20IMG_2355 I have been on a roll lately completing my Stampin Up My Paper Pumpkin kits.  Today’s post is from the April 2017 A Sara Thing kit.  This card was done as instructed which is not what I usually do.  I prefer to challenge myself to come up with alternative ways to use the kits

Colorful Seasons

2017_08_19IMG_2331Today’s card starts off with the all new Color Theory DSP stack #144193 from Stampin Up. I added the Adirondack chair cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits #143751 and the sentiment from the coordinating Colorful Seasons #143726 stamp set.  This card is so quick and easy it truly makes me smile.

Cherry On top

2017_08_17IMG_2382 I have had a ball this summer playing with the now retired Stampin Up Tasty Treats DSP.  I made a mistake and ordered 2 packages so I have had to use the paper for summer birthdays, national icecream day cards and today’s card is an all purpose friendship card.  The sentiment is from the Cool Treats #142982 stamp set in the Stampin Up annual catalog.

Tool Cool

2017_08_14creamsicledayIMG_2371 I needed a quick summery birthday card for a young boy so I decided to go the cool route using the Stampin Up Tasty Treats DSP (retired) as the background. I added the sentiment from the Cool Treats #142982 onto a Stitched Shapes Circle element #145372. Simple, Cute and Cool is just the way summer birthdays should be.

Wood you be my friend

2017_08_12IMG_2337 This card was the easiest one I have done in a while but I just wanted to showcase the Stampin Up Wood Textures DSP #144177.  All the papers speak for themselves and need nothing more than a sentiment to complete a very masculine card.  The sentiment is from the Sheltering Tree #137163 Stampin Up stamp set.

Sweet Watermelon card

2017_08_11IMG_2478 I love getting the My Paper Pumpkin kits from Stampin Up in the mail each month and was so excited for the One in a Melon kit except it was intended to be used as a gift bag.  I decided to cut the bag down and use it for the background layer.  For the main panel, I just stamped the images to make my watermelon slices every which way. Super cute and easy.
