Nesting Envelopes

2014_08_15IMG_3629 Today’s post was voted the favorite card from my “the envelope please” workshop that featured the fabulous must have Stampin Up envelope punch board #133774.  For this card I used now retired but ever so cute Birthday Basics DSP for this card.  Like all Stampin Up paper, each DSP paper pack all coordinates with one another so it makes planning a card easy.  The card base is a pouch made using the envelope punch board complete with file tab! The party hat envelope(also created with the envelope punch board) tucked inside the pouch is another card that holds a gift card.2014_08_15IMG_3633

The card is decorated with DSP and the sentiment is stamped with the Just Sayin’ # and then cut out using the coordinating Word Bubbles #132968 framelits. Finally the outer most mailing envelope was cut and lined using the envelope punch board.

This card was fun to create but even more fun to receive!

Stripped Birthday Basics

2013_09_29IMG_3605Nothing screams birthday like the bright and fun colors in the Stampin Up Birthday Basics DSP.  I love the fun patterns in the birthday paper but used caution to not over do it; so I used strips of the patterned paper and added a textured layered fun flower using the Blossom punch #125603,  the Pansy Punch #130698 and the 7/8″ Scallop circle punch #129404 for the center.  I layed the flower along the contrasting Scallop edge border #119882.  Super easy and a great way to use up scraps.

Balloon Birthday

2013_09_11IMG_3601 I love using the Stampin Up DSP for a card layer and then making an element from the DSP using punches.  For today’s card I used a piece of DSP from the Birthday Basics collection.  I then created a balloon bouquet  using the small oval #120908 and the feet from the owl punch #118074.  I added Calyspo Coral Bakers Twine #125573 and anchored it to a layered embellishment using the Apothecary accents #127003, 7/8 ” Scallop and a  Bitty Banner with a birthday sentiment.

Love it and made it in multiples to have on hand for graduations, birthdays and other celebrations.
