2Fer Happy Things

2015_05_24IMG_70132015_05_24IMG_7020Today I am posting 2 cards in 1 post featuring the Stampin Up Adventure Bound DSP paper stack # 137780
that is currently available in the Stampin Up Occasions catalog. The Adventure Bound DSP has 48 sheets of 4 each of 12 double-sided designs of 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ paper and are great for card fronts or backgrounds.  There are no delicate flowers or soft colors with this DSP; instead the DSP is  bold spirited graphics are  and the right choice for  making  Father’s Day, graduation, or other masculine projects. . Both cards also feature the now retired A Happy Thing Sale-a-Bration stamp set.

Both cards have similar layouts and crop the bird in a circle.  The card on the left uses the soon to be retired Starburst Framelits #132967 for the bird to perch on top of the woodgrain DSP while the card on the right the circle is cut into the birch tree and the bird is nesting inside.  For the sentiment I used the soon to be retiring stamp set, Lots of Thanks #129687.

Lemons Journal

2015_04_20DSCI0806 Today’s post is a fabulous journal that Cammie made using the Stampin Up kraft journal #135718 as the base.  Cammie always has a fresh journal in her purse, car, house to keep herself organized.   She also likes to give them as gifts so she always makes them so she has a few on hand.

This journal  has a pool party base layer that is silver embossed using the Stampin Up Gorgeous Grunge stamp set #130517.  The rest of the journal was designed using the now retired Sale-a-bration products: Irresistibly Yours DSP cut into a banner and sponged with pear pizazz ink to reveal the white embossed leaves on the DSP.  The other banner was stamped with versa mark using the Stampin Up Happy Thing stamp set and then embossed with silver embossing powder.  She finished the journal by adding the sentiment multiple times across the bottom of the journal in random pattern.

When Life Gives You Lemons

119856

2015_04_15IMG_6984 Happy Tax Day! I thought it was appropriate to brighten up a sour day like Tax Day with a cheerful card using the now retired A Happy Thing stamp set.  I randomly stamped the lemons on a card panel.  After coloring the lemons with the now discontinued Blendabilities markers I filled in the “white space” with the Love Life sentiment.  I double matted the panel on daffodil and pool party with a scalloped edge using the Scalloped Edge border punch #119882.  I added the Thank You sentiment inside a large oval #119855 and then nested on a scallop oval #119856.

So when life gives you lemons, make lemonade or a card with lemons!2015_04_15IMG_7021

Hello Blue Bird

2015_04_08IMG_7011 I love the bird in the A Happy Thing (no longer available) stamp set that was available during the Stampin Up sale-a-bration.  I made some gift sets using the bird image from the A Happy Thing stamp set and will share them with you over the next few months.  For today’s card I used the Birthday Bash #137783 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog.  On the main panel, I stamped the bird and colored it with the no longer available Stampin Up blendabilities. The crushed curry banner was cut using the banner in the Stampin Up Mini Treat Bag Thinlit #137547 and the hello sentiment was cut using the Hello You Thinlit Dies #137363 available in the Stampin Up occasions catalog.
