Bye Bye Banner


Of all the items on the Stampin Up retirement list, I am saddest to see the Banner Punch go.  It is going out with a bang though because it is one of the discounted items on the retirement list.  So be sure to get yours before it is gone forever.   To properly say goodbye, I made a fun birthday card using the now retired Perfectly Artistic DSP and many banners that I layered using both sides of the Bermuda Bay piece of the DSP.  I randomly added sequins and a piece of bakers twine.  To create the Bermuda Bay glimmer tape I used a dauber inked with Bermuda Bay ink onto the white glimmer tape.  The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes #128748 stamp set. The Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set is  a very versatile stamp set and is a must have set.

Retiring List

Stampin Up has lots of stamps and other stuff on the new new retirement list. As sad as that is that some of our favorite things will soon be gone but on the upside, Stampin Up needs to make room for new products coming soon in the all new annual catalog.  Be sure to check out the whole list of items that will be gone forever and even better some of the retiring items are discounted up to 50 percent off.

2fer Masculine Birthdays

2015_05_11IMG_7126For today’s post I am showcasing 2 cards that use the same Stamp Up DSP-Best Year Ever. The Best Year Ever DSP was part of the annual Stampin Up Sale-a-Bration and is no longer available; however any of the wonderful DSP’s can be used to duplicate both these cards.

For the first card (on the right) I used the Stampin Up On Film Framelits #132969 to frame the adorable Cheerful Critters Photopolymer stampset #137932. I colored the shirt and added a sentiment in his sign and matted it on a piece of pool party cardstock and a piece of hello honey satin ribbon #133671.

2015_05_09IMG_7124For the 2nd card (on the left) I kept it simple and just used the Best Year DSP as the main layer then added a strip of white matted on espresso and then added coordinating punched banners #133519 and layered them. To add interest I stapled the top banner using the Stampin Up handheld stapler #139083.

Banner Wreath

2014_11_15IMG_4697 The Stampin Up banner punch #1335519 is the feature of today’s post. I punched a lot of mini banners and formed a multi layer wreath.  I added a piece of real red retired ribbon, colored rhinestones and added it to the wood grain #127821 textured layer and added a holiday sentiment to complete this classic holiday card.

Hello sunshine


It has been a long winter & spring break is here so that must mean we can expect more cold weather but if we think sunshine maybe it will come.  Today’s card is a fun one using the banner punch (free item) #133519 to create the sun rays.  The center of the sun was punched with a circle punch from the fabulous water color wonder DSP #132994 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog. The smoky slate background was textured using the Decorative Dots texturing folder (free item)#133520 and the clouds were cut using the Word Bubbles framelits #132968. I framed a whisper white cardstock strip with 2 pieces of Tangerine satin ribbon (retired item) and stamped the sentiment with the See Ya Later #133533 (free item) stampset to complete this al occasions card.

All the free items used in this card are part of Stampin Up’s on going sale-a-bration.  For every $50 spent in merchandise from the annual catalog, the occasions catalog, online clearance rack, or  MDS digital downloads you can earn free products from the Stampin Up Sale-a-bration catalog.  Sale-a-bration is not over yet but it will be soon- March 31st is the last day to take advantage of this great offer.
