Spread Christmas Cheer


I started out cutting all the gingerbread houses from a sheet of the Stampin Up Candy  Cane Lane DSP (no longer available).  I added the cut out house to a pole and an altered bell stamped using the Seasonal Bells  #142104 stamp set and then punched using the Bell Punch #141846.  I added the bow stamped using the Holly Berry Happiness #142061 and the coordinating Holly Berry Builder Punch#141843. The bird is from the Beautiful Branches stamp set  (retired). The sentiment is from the Stampin Up Tin of Tags #142180.  Lots of different products went into this card but it still turned out clean and simple!

Spooky Monsters


Today’s post is an example of using a product not as intended.  The adorable monster is from the now retired Beautiful Branches framelits from Stampin Up. The spooky sentiment is cut from the now retired Seasonal Frame Thinlits Dies from Stampin Up. Once the monster was assembled he was placed on a piece of the striped paper in the Pop of Pink Specialty paper collection #141648.

Apple for my teacher


Happy Labor Day! In Ohio, school has been back in session for over 3 weeks but back in the day we started after Labor Day.  I made this card for my dear friend who is a 1st grade teacher that puts her heart and soul into her classroom.  I started with a real red base and then layered a piece of retired Stampin Up DSP that  looks like the old paper we practiced cursive writing on. I used the Thoughtful Branches #143539 stampset to stamp the grass, apples and leaves.   For the sun, I used the Swirly Bird stampset #141749. To finish the tree  I cut the leaves and apples with the coordinating Beautiful Branches Thinlits #143538.  For the sentiment, I stamped it from the The Thoughtful Branches stampset and added a handcut banner and stapled it to the writing paper.  Good luck to all the teachers and students starting a fresh new school year.

The Thoughtful Branches and the Beautiful Branches Framelits were supposed to be available only in the month of August bur Stampin Up has extended it until supplies run out.  So there is still time but no way to tell how long the Bundle will last.

Simple Thoughts


Today is the last day to get purchase the Stampin Up Thoughtful Branches Bundle #144328. I used the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to texture the whisper white background.  I added scraps of color and popped the tree cut from the Beautiful Branches Thinlits.  The sentiment is from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set to create this color blocked thank you card.
