Shine Bright Like a Diamond

2018_06_22IMG_3390 I had been wanting to use the now retired Naturally Eclectic DSP from Stampin Up but never got around to it until now.  I paired it with the now retired Your Priceless stamp set.  The diamond was cut using the Eclectic Layers Thinlits #143774.  I loved how this turned out and went to town using up the other patterns in the Naturally Eclectic DSP so stay tuned.

Double Daisy Delight

2018_06_05IMG_0734 (2) I love the clean and simple look of today’s card.  Cammie used her master brayering skills to create the variegated wide stripe to anchor the perfect and realistic daisies. The daisies were punched using the daisy punch #143713 and the 3/4 inch circle punch #119873.  The sentiment is from the retired Tin of Cards stamp set but any sentiment would do.

Cheers for Beer

2018_05_06IMG_0721 Today’s card is an awesome card for any beer lover in your life.  Cammie made this card for my husbands birthday but it could be used for any celebration including graduation and as my son calls it drink o de mayo!! This card uses the soon to be retiring Brick Wall textured impressions embossing folder.  For the focal panel Cammie stamped the beer image from the soon to be retiring Mixed Drinks #141928 stamp set.  She colored each beer mug with the appropriate color for a wide range of beer styles.  She hand cut the mugs and foam creating a perfect flight of beer,

Man’s Shirt Pocket

2018_05_03IMG_3203 Today’s card is a super cute masculine card that can be used for a man’s birthday, graduation, fathers day or any other manly celebration.  I textured the card base with the Simple Stripes #145648 Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I added a pocket and collar using the True Gentleman DSP #145593 and the Pocket Framelits #143750.  I made sure to not adhere the pocket down so it could be used as a pocket to slip a gift card or cash inside.  The pocket tag is stamped using the Pocketful of Sunshine #143719 stamp set.The sentiment label is from the Truly Tailored #145732 that will not be carried over to the new catalog.

Late Grad card

2017_08_15IMG_2204 Today’s post is the last of the graduation cards I made for the 2017 season. This card is simply but packs a punch and signifies not only the end of a school year but the start of a new one.  I used the Stampin Up Large Number Framelits #140622 for the numbers and I rolled a piece of scrap  white textured with a retired TIEF into a diploma.  I added the graduation cap using a 1″ square punch and a modified circle.  Good Luck to all graduates in 2017 and to all kids starting a brand new new school year.

Beautiful Life

Today’s card is just a fun card using the retired Serene Scenery DSP Paper Stack from Stampin Up as my background.  I then added one of the girls from the Beautiful You #143004 stamp set from Stampin to create a perfect card for any girl in your life for almost any event.
