4 months down


Well April is over and we turn the calendar page to May. It’s my embellished calendar page featuring the Abstract Impressions #147513 and the retiring Detailed Dragonfly #142749 Thinlits from Stampin Up.  I added some Gold Faceted Gems #144141 to the pre-printed flowers.

Bee Mine

2018_02_14IMG_2982 Happy Valentine’s Day.  For today’s card which is my favorite Valentine card I made this year It’s always fun to send punny Valentines and this one is no exception. I made an eclipse style card using the Large Letters Framelits #141712 and the Bubbles and Fizz DSP #147244 from the  Stampin Up Sale-A-Bration catalog. The Bubbles and Fizz DSP is one of many free items you can earn during the Stampin Up annual Sale-A-Bration campaign ongoing now thru March 31st.

To achieve the Eclipse look I cut several layers of letters in black and 1 layer from the Bubbles and Fizz DSP and then stacked them and placed them back in the spot on the card front.  It sounds more confusing than it is.  I then stamped the bees using the Dragonfly Dreams #142924 stamp set and cut them out using the coordinating Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits #142749.  I looked thru all my stamps and found the “Mine” in the now retired Crazy Mixed Up Love stamp set and hand cut a banner to place over a punched heart.  Hope your day is filled with love, flowers and chocolates!

Detailed Dragonfly

2017_07_08Richard GaraIMG_2215 I just love the details on this card just by simply using Stampin Up Framelits which also makes it quite easy.  I started with a circle cut in the top layer using the Layering Circle  Framelits #141705.  I cut 2 of the dragonfly flights from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits #142749 and glued then to the card front and cut away the excess and then layered a piece of Watercolor Wonder DSP (retired) beneath  the circle to create a sun effect.   I then cut out the big dragonfly and add a strip of rhinestones to “bling” it up! The sentiment is from the now retired Sweet Essentials stamp set.

Coloring Inside the Lines

2017_04_20IMG_2070 I finally got around to using the free Sale-a-bration DSP Color Inside the Lines that is no longer available.  I cut the 12×12 DSP to 4×5.25 inches for the card front.  I colored the flowers using Copic markers and the cut the dragonfly using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits #142749 and the sentiment from the coordinating Dragonfly Dreams #142924.
