Its a Sara Thing- Take 2

2017_08_23IMG_2359 Here’s another super quick card made using the Stampin Up It’s  Sara Thing My Paper Pumpkin card kit.  The My Paper Pumpkin and other card kits from Stampin Up are a perfect way to have plenty of cards on hand for birthdays and other occasions.  The kits include lots of elements leftover so you can add some cardstock and other supplies to extend the kit even further.

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

You Dazzle Me

2017_08_16IMG_2405 Today’s post is a simple one using a piece of retired Stampin Up DSP.  I added a touch of the new Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, ink and ribbon to make it pop! The sentiment is from the Stampin Up Pocketful of Sunshine #143719.

Wood Textures Manly card

2017_07_24IMG_2344I brought the look  of the outdoors inside with these natural, rustic patterns in the Wood Textures DSP papet stack from Stampin Up #144177. So many designs, so many colors, so many uses. Fronts and backs are similar grains and colors for ideal use in die cutting. I combined 2 patterns for todays card and embossed the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons #143726 stampset to create the sign.

Crate of Thanks

2017_07_11IMG_2213 For today’s card I was inspired by the card on page 159 of the 2017-2018 annual catalog featuring the fabulous and new Wood Crate Framelits #143730.  I love this Framelit and thought I could do without the stamp set so I did not buy the coordinating Wood Words set.  Big Mistake!  It always seems like when  I don’t buy the bundle I regret it.

For this card, I stamped the background with an image from a stamp set that has been retired for years.  I think it is called Home Grown.  I then used the Wood Crate to cut it out from the Wood Textured DSP #144177 and made the crate.  I added the hand cut carrots and added carrot tops using the retired bird builder punch. I finished with a tag tied with linen thread.
