U R my Anchor

2016_06_19IMG_0865

Today is a bittersweet day for our family.  My niece, Elizabeth, is being inducted into the 3rd Company at the United States Naval Academy class of 2020. I- day is the first day of her plebe summer and to honor the naval tradition, I am posting a nautical card featuring the Guy Greetings stamp set #138825 from Stampin Up. For the background paper I layered several pieces of the now retired Going Places DSP from Stampin Up. To complete the nautical look, I added a knot from twine.

Anchors Away Elizabeth!

Today’s post is a simple layout featuring the Stampin Up Balloon Celebration #140675 on the main panel that Cammie brayered for the sky.  The balloon was stamped and then punched using the coordinating Balloon Bouquet punch #140609 The sentiment is also from the Balloon Celebration stamp set/

Simple and Mailable

I wanted to clear out some of my old and retired kiwi kiss paper so I decided to use the now retired The Sky is the Limit stamp set from Stampin Up to randomly stamp the planes all over the card front. The sentiment was stamped and then cut it out using  a Chalk Talk Framelits die #129983.  Perfect almost one layer masculine card which is rare for me but the USPS will be happy!

Chosen Path

Today’s post is all about the beauty of brayering and inks to create a beautiful scene.  For the sentiment, Cammie used the now retired Adventure Awaits stamp set from Stampin Up to complement her card.

Chasing Your Dream

2015_10_10IMG_0028Today’s card is another cute card that Cammie made using the Stampin Up Giggle Greetings #131862 stampset on the heavily layered Lots of Labels #138281 focal piece.  The background DSP is now retired but used for inspiration for all the circle punch accents.

Back To School

2015_09_06IMG_9089 When I opened the Schoolhouse DSP from the Stampin Up catalog I knew I was going to use the ABC sheet and make back to school cards.  Our whole adult family loves back to school time because that means shopping for cool school supplies. I mean you are never too old for paper, pens, clip boards, Sharpies, staplers etc or are you? I also knew that I wanted to use the Stampin Up For the Teacher stamp set that I ordered over 3 years ago and never used.

So I set out to make a card for my friend that is a dedicated 1st grade teacher.  I messed around with the stamp set and could not come up with a design so I googled and blogged and alas I found the cute idea for the clip board and pencil on a fellow demonstrators -Pink Buckaroo, blog. I combined her layout and was able to use my For The Teacher stampset.  The fun feature for the clipboard is that I used the silver foil paper from Stampin Up and the Scalloped Tag Topper #133324. For the pencil I used the Handpicked Framelits #137361.  Thanks for the inspiration Pink Buckaroo.
