For today’s card I used the Stampin Up Butterflies Thinlits #137360 to create a mask. The black background is the now retired but on the Stampin Up Clearance Rack. I then used the butterfly stencil and chalk inks to dauber the butterfly on the chalkboard background. For extra emphasis, I added a coordinating butterfly and a strip of rhinestones for the body. To complete the look I added a banner with a sentiment and some coordinating ribbon
Today’s post is a simple layout for a birthday card but it as always the layout can be applied to any occasion. I used the Stampin Up Large Polka dot textured impressions folder #133739 and a strip of Sweet Taffy DSP #133693. I cut a label using the Chalk Talk Framelit #129983. I added the stamped image from the now retired Making Spirits Bright #135089 stamp set and colored it with Stampin Up Blendabilities. I added some ribbon and sequins to give it some texture to complete a fun birthday greeting.

Well today is the last day of another successful Stampin Up Sale-a-bration. You have until midnight Mountain Time to place an order to receive the free SAB items. I thought I would say goodbye to SAB with today’s card featuring mostly SAB items. For the swampy effect, I used the Gorgeous Grunge #130517 to stamp the background of this card using monochromatic color-pool party ink on pool party cardstock. I added a strip of sweet sorbet DSP #133521 (free SAB item) to create a “lily pad” I then created the alligator using the Petite Pennants Builder #122362 punch for the head, the teeth were cut using the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die #120893 and the eyelids were punched using the Owl Builder #118074 punch. For the body I used the Chalk Talk #129983 and stamped the See Ya Later #133533 (Free SAB Item) and then textured the head and body with the Decorative Dots #133520 (Free SAB item) to give it the alligator feel. I got really creative by wrapping the DSP around the back of the card and added his tail punched from Petite Pennants Builder punch. I think this made for a cute surprise and a fond farewell for the Stampin Up Sale-a-Bration. See ya later!
Cammie drew her inspiration for today’s post from page 99 of the Stampin Up annual catalog. The card is heavily layered and starts with a smoky slate card base that is textured with the Pretty Prints folder #132175. She added a mambo edge piece cut from the scallops edgelets #127019. The crushed curry piece is stamped using the Shop Around #129587 stamp set. Next she added a mambo piece cut from the Chalktalk framelits #129983 and then threaded with 2 sizes of ribbon. Finally, Cammie created an Island Indigo window using the chalk talk #130634 stampset and coordinating framelit #129983 and then used a 1 3/8 inch circle punch to create the window so she could add the chalk talk sentiment behind it. Remember to bundle your Stampin Up products when you can and save 15%.

Flu season is in full swing in Central Ohio and we are hoping our flu vaccines protect us from getting the crud. Today’s card is a get well card I made to have on hand when I need a quick card. I was cleaning out my ancient Stampin Up DSP and made a bunch of cards to use it up. So you could substitute any DSP and it would be just as good. To make the tissue box I just punched a Hexagon #130919 shape from a coordinating DSP and punched a hole in the top so that I could add a piece of real tissue. I put the completed box on a tag cut from the Chalk Talk Framelits #129983 and added a sweet get well sentiment to complete the card.

I used the Gingham Garden DSP #129310 from the Stampin Up annual catalog to create this countryside garden card. I used the Chalk Talk framelit #129983 to make the tag that I stamped the shovel image from the Tag It #130303 stampset. The Tag It stamp set is the charitable stampset that supports the Ronald McDonald House Charities. For every Tag It set sold Stampin Up donates $3 to RMHC- to date Stampin Up has donated over $1,000,000 to RMHC.
To complete the card I added paper ruffle using the edge of the Tea Lace Paper Doilies #129399 and made a sunflower from the 1 3/4 ” scallop circle punch #119854.

I always tell my friends and customers if I get a card in the mail or if they want to be featured on my blog, the card or project must use mostly Stampin Up products. Today’s card is just that, my friend and customer, Sherry Rider made a birthday card for her daughter and she used mostly Stampin Up products. The card features the Mosaic Maddness stampset #130249 and the coordinating Mosaic Punch #131267. Remember if you bundle the Mosaic stamp and punch you will save 15% (wood bundle #132734,clear bundle #132733). Sherry also took advantage of the Chalk Talk bundle (wood #132731, clear #132730) to stamp the Big day sentiment from the Chalk talk stamp set #130634 and then cut it with the coordinating Chalk Talk framelits #129983 and she finished the card with Cherry cobbler Bakers twine #123125.
