Hello My Pretty

2014_10_31IMG_5629 I love the Musical Wicked and I saw this witch on another demonstrators site so I modified the punch art to fit on a standard card and made it my own.  I used this as one of my Halloween card designs and was happy with the turnout and glad that I could use mostly retired Stampin Up products.

Hope your Halloween is Wicked.

Beach Baby Beach Baby

2013_08_04IMG_34902013_08_04IMG_3491 Today’s post is my super summer card that I made so I could use up scraps and old DSP.  Very little stamping which is fun sometimes to just use pretty papers.  I made the bathing suit by using the Dress Up framelit #130101 from the Stampin Up annual catalog.

DSCI0390

I modified the dress by making the leg holes with the 3/4 inch circle punch.  What a fun way to send some Random Acts of Kindness with a fun card sure to delightthe recipient. Cammie loved my card so much that she flattered me by CASING my card and making it her own by adding a beach ball.

Fashionably Late birthday

2013_03_24IMG_1140Today’s card features all things from the Stampin Up Spring catalog and features the All Dressed Up Stamp set #129174 and coordinating dressed up framelit #130101.  Buy the bundle #131095 and save 15%.  I made lots of these cards using 1″ scraps of DSP and then coordinated the dresses to match.  This card uses the super bright and fun Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP #126922. I cut a 1″ strip from the card base and then embossed it using the needlepoint border #129383 before adding the mannequin and dress.  Of course I had to add some rhinestone bling to fancy up the party dress!

All Dressed Up

2013_01_30IMG_0929This card is another one that I created using the Dressed Up Framelits #131095 and a Paper Doiley #129399 from the Stampin Up Spring Catalog.  The card base is very vanilla and then I did a whisper white Vintage card front with a peek-a-boo cut from the Labels framelits.  I added the black mannequin and cut the dress from whisper white left over by cuttiing the hole.  I adorned the dress with mini pearls and then folded the doiley to make the skirt. I added a pool party belt and flower madefrome the new 7/8 ” mini scallop circle punch.  I added the sentiment congratulations…. all dressed up and somewhere to go from the coordinating All Dressed up stampset #129174.

I am in love with these dresses and am thinking I might do an all dressed up workshop.  The possibilites with this set is endless.

Pattern of Friendship

2013_01_26IMG_0922 Happy Birthday to my neighbor and dear friend Lynne.  Lynne is an avid seamstress and I always make her a sewing related card.  I think I collect way too much sewing stuff because I would love to be able to sew.  In fact when I grow up and retire, I plan to take sewing lessons and quilting.  Oops, I am gettiing off track.  When I received the new Stampin Up Spring Catalog I fell in love with the All Dressed Up stamps #129174 and the coordinating Dress Up Bundle #131095.   The background DSP is from the fabulous Print Poetry DSP Paper Pack #129312.  How cute is the sewing related paper?  I also cut the dress and apron from thie Printed Poetry workshop.  I pieced the apron to the dress and then hid it with a piece of primrose satin stitched ribbon and added a flower at the waist.  The dress was added to the manequin that was embellished with pearls.  The sentiment is from a retired Stampin Up set called Pattern of Friendship.  I stamped the sentiment on a piece of the  Canvas Creations sheet.  I then edged the canvas with pinking sheers.  I love this card and know that Lynne will too.

Warning….. I am obsessed with this die so there are many more dress cards forthcoming.  I am thinking it is related to my paper doll obsession from my youth.
