Plaid Thanks

2020_01_03IMG_4895

I needed some Christmas thank yous so I wanted to create something quick and easy so I used up some plaid scraps from the Wrapped In Plaid DSP from Stampin Up. I cut the plaid using the Stitched Nested Labels #146828 Dies.  I cut the sentiment using the Word Wishes Die and a Stitched Rectangle Dies #148551.  I added a few gold sequins to jazz it up just a bit!

Beautiful Bouquet

2020_01_02IMG_4891 For todays card post I did no stamping! I created the textured background with the Basket Weave 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I used the Stitched Nested Labels Die to serve as the anchor for my bouquet of flowers cut using the Bouquet Bunch Dies #143659 from Stampin Up.  I added a mini pearl in the center of each flower to add some texture.

2020 Calendar Cards

I am obsessed with calendars and every year I make calendar cards to send out to family, customers and friends so they can start the year off right. This year, I bought a non SU easel die for the base but then decorated it using Stampin Up products.  I used the gorgeous Perennial Essence DSP #149100 and then added the sentiment from the A Wish for Everything #149320 stamp set and then added a layered daisy punched from the Medium Daisy Punch.

Upcycling Christmas cards

2019_12_30MindiIMG_4932 (1) My friend Mindi saves all her Christmas cards from year to year and then repurposes them into her own cards.  She started with a card base from the Night Before Christmas cards and envelopes #150440 from Stampin Up.  She then hand cut out the snowman from an old Christmas card and added it to the card front along with the sentiment.

Great job Mindi!

Crafty Tree

2019_12_28IMG_4887 I made today’s card for one of my very crafty friends for Christmas.  I had good intentions of making several of these cards but ended up with just one because it was so tedious to make.  I stamped the re-inker images from the Stampin Up It Starts with Art #149303 stamp set.  I colored the bottles with Stampin Blends then cut them out using the coordinating Arts and Crafts Dies #149580.  I then arranged them in  a tree shape and decorated with bakers twine, buttons, and sequins.  The star was cut using the Stitched Stars Die #150653.

Free as a Bird

Today’s cards are 2 beautiful cards featuring the Free As a Bird #149468 Stampin Up stamp set.   Cammie also used the Peaceful Boughs #150541 stamp set. She added springs cut from the coordinating Beautiful Boughs Dies #150661.  The greetings were from the Itty Bitty Christmas #150513 stampset.  The matted focal panel was popped onto a cherry cobbler layer embossed with the Winter Knit 3D #150645 embossing folder.

Holly Jolly Christmas

2019_12_25IMG_4881 Merry Christmas one and all! Today’s post  I started with a piece of Let It Snow DSP #150393 from Stampin Up.  I stamped the sentiment from the Holly Jolly Christmas #150471 stamp set directly onto the patterned DSP.  I created a hand cut snow mound and added Santa stamped from the Holly Jolly Christmas stamp set, colored with Stampin Blends and then cut out with coordinating Jolly Season #150648 dies.
