Coloring Inside the Lines

2017_04_20IMG_2070 I finally got around to using the free Sale-a-bration DSP Color Inside the Lines that is no longer available.  I cut the 12×12 DSP to 4×5.25 inches for the card front.  I colored the flowers using Copic markers and the cut the dragonfly using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits #142749 and the sentiment from the coordinating Dragonfly Dreams #142924.

Good Egg

2017_04_07IMG_0492 Today’s post is  a sweet card that Cammie made for Easter.  The Hello Honey strip is textured with the all new Hexgons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #143231.  The chick and the sentiment are from the now retired Hey Chick stamp set and the  carton of eggs are from the Perfect Mix #142933 stampset. Although this card is intended for Easter it could also be used for other occasions including birthday, thank -you and thinking of you cards.

Wear Red

2017_04_04IMG_0491 Today’s card is a great card with a fabulous statement! The sentiment is from a retired Stampin Up stamp set but the message is right on! The background DSP is from the Back to Black DSP collection that is no longer available.  The focal piece is from the Stampin Up Beautiful You #143637 stamp set from Stampin Up.

Tea-riffic Birthday

2017_03_30IMG_0859 I made this card for one of my tea loving friends and it uses the retired products from the now retired Have a Cuppa DSP and the rest of the products in the Have a Cuppa Suite of Products including the A Nice Cuppa and Cups & Kettle framelits dies.  I was sad that this suite only stayed around for a little while but dusted them off to make a tea-riffic birthday card.

Can Can Girls

2017_03_29IMG_2030 I have been inspired by all Cammie’s cards and others that I have seen using the Stampin Up Beautiful You #143004 stamp set that I decided to buy it and use it to make some cards of my own.  I  made my cards using the mask technique to stamp the girls in a row. I colored them in using the Stampin Up Watercolor Pencils #141709 and added the sentiments from the Beautiful You stamp set to complete the can can girls.

Life Looks Beautiful on You

2017_03_21IMG_0493Today’s birthday card post is a clean and fresh layout featuring the Beautiful You #143004 stamp set from the Stampin Up Occasions Catalog. Cammie used a retired DSP with bright and bold geometric designs and pieced the lady’s dress from a coordinating pattern.  The sentiments in the Beautiful You are fabulous for all the women in your life.  I especially love the fonts used in this set.
