Brighter Days to come

2017_05_18IMG_2168Today’s post combines the soon to be retiring Cupcakes and Carousels DSP Paper Stack #142744 with the Beautiful You #143004 stamp set from Stampin Up.  I   combined 3 patterned papers to create the background.  I then stamped the girl with the umbrella on a piece of very vanilla cardstock and then 2 more times on scraps of Cupcakes and Carousels DSP.  I hand cut out the dress and the umbrellas and pieced them back onto the girl on the vanilla cardstock to dress her up like a paper doll.  I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful You on a circle cut with Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372.

Be sure to check out the Stampin Up Retirement List to get some of your must haves before they go away on May 31st.  There are some items that are even on sale so hurry up and place your order.

Sharing in Sorrow


A beautiful sympathy is the perfect way to show you care.  Cammie created lots of texture using brayering, daubing and other inking techniques.  The stamp set being featured is the Thoughts and Prayers #128751 stamp set from Stampin Up.

Remember When

Today we all remember where we were on 9.11.2001 when the US was attacked by 4 coordinated terrorist attacks on the morning of 9.11. Our lives were changed forever. Today, I remember with a post using the now retired Flowering Fields stamp set by Stampin Up.  Take time out and pause in a moment of silence for all those that were lost on that horrific day. 2016_09_11img_0869

Serene Thoughts

This is one of my favorite cards that I have made in awhile.  It features the Stampin Up Serene Scenery DSP paper stack #141642 and the gorgeous hydrangea was made using the  Thoughtful Branches stamp set #143539 and the coordinating Beautiful Branches Thinlits. The sentiments are the only thing that are different on these 2 cards.  I used the retired Stampin Up All Boxed Up stamp set and the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets.

The Thoughtful Branches and Beautiful Branches Thinlits is only available in August so just 2 more days and it will be gone. It is such a great bundle so get in now1
