Fancy Schmancy

2014_03_27IMG_0622 Today’s post is an out of the ordinary for me.  I am really not a gold fan but this card came out great and is all product from the Stampin Up occasions catalog.  The card base is the gold foil sheets #132622 embossed with the Ampersand #132970 and then the Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape #133000.  I added a hand cut a banner and added the sentiment from the Happy Watercolor #133191 stampset and a gold bakers twine #132975 bow.

This card turned out great and would be  great for  golden anniversary.

Your Lucky Day

2014_03_17Shamrock On 001

Happy St.Patrick’s Day and it is a lucky day because you will be getting 2 cards today in one post.  How’s that for luck?  The first card is a real creative gem by Cammie.  She got her shamrock on by using the Ampersand textured folder #132970  from the Stampin Up occasions catalog and then colored the giant Ampersand with a basic black marker.  She added the Keep Calm sentiment from the now retired Keep Calm stamp set. She used an alphabet set for the Rock and then made a shamrock from the retired triple heart punch but any heart would work.


2014_03_17MG_0922The second card is one of my St. Patrick’s Day designs.  I used all  the Oval Framelits from the Stampin Up annual catalog and layered the rainbow of colors on top of one another.  Once I had all 6 layers, I cut the oval in half to get the rainbow.  Warning it is really hard to cut through that many layers with a std trimmer so I pulled out my big table top trimmer to get the job done with a clean cut.  I made the clouds using the Word Bubbles framelits #132968 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog.  I added the sentiment in one of the clouds from the See Ya later #133533 stampset (free item) from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  The gray  background  (smokey slate) was textured using the now retired rainy day clouds textured folder.

Hope you day continues to bring you lots of luck and plenty of green beer!
