Affectionately Yours

I wanted showcase the beautiful Affectionately Yours DSP I  #141632 from Stampin Up for two cards for two different occasions. I created the striped piece using the image in the Thoughtful Banners #141614 stamp set and coordinating colors of ink to match the DSP.  I added words from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and used the coordinating  Duet Banner Punch to accent the occasion.  The Thoughtful Banners stamp set is as diverse as the people in your life and has  has everything you need to make a banner to celebrate everyone and everything you love.

Forever in Blue Jeans


I love denim so I decided to try my hand at making a pair of blue jeans by randomly stamping the hatched image from the You’ve Got This  #139572 background stamp in dapper denim ink onto marina mist cardstock. For the belt loops I punched Classic Label #141491 and the belt was textured using the Woodgrain #127821 Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  For the pocket I stamped the image from the Badges and Banners #141605 stamp set and punched it out with the coordinating Best Badge punch #140633. The sentiment is also from the Badges and Banners stamp set and punched with the Duet Banner punch #141483.

Believe in This Christmas


It’s already the 25th of the month and that means it’s time for a Christmas post. It is only September and I have most of my Christmas cards done for 2016 because I committed to making some each month and at least one per card workshop and that has really paid off.  This card features the This Christmas Specialty DSP #141628 in the Stampin Up annual catalog.  The main focal panel is stamped using the tree from the Thoughtful Branches #144328 stamp set .  The cardinals were also stamped using the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and cut out using the coordinating Beautiful Branches Thinlits#143538.  For the sentiment banner , I used the Thoughtful Banners stamp set #141614 and punched it out using the coordinating Duet Banner Punch #141483.  The sentinment is from the now retired Good Greetings stamp set.  Before adding the banner, I added wisps of Cherry Cobbler and Emerald Envy Metallic Thread #142003.

Tiled Birthday

2016_08_24IMG_1140Nothing screams birthday like candles, confetti and more!  Today’s card features the now retired It’s My Party DSP from Stampin Up.  The tiled layout features 4 pieces of the fabulous paper.  In the center I built a layered element using the scallop circle and circle punches and then added the sentiment from the Thoughtful Banners #141614 stamp set and punched it out with the coordinating Duet Banner punch# 141483.  Super fun card

Pop of Pink Hello


I just love the Stampin Up Pop Of Pink DSP #141648 that I used as for the striped layer and the accent strip.  I used the Best Badge Punch to cut a window in the black cardstock and then stamped the bird cage with the coordinating Badges and Banners stamp set #141610. For the sweet sentiment I stamped it with the Badge and Banners set and then used the Duet Banners punch #141483 to create the cute banner.  I finished the card with a piece of mambo and black bakers twine.

The Badges and Banners stamp set is everything you could ask for in a stamp set.  The set is versatile, fun, and covers most occasions from celebrating the arrival of a new baby, letting  a friend know that you love them,or wishing someone a great day. When paired with the coordinating punch #142334 you can save 10 percent.

Pineapple thanks


Today’s post features all things new from the Stampin Up 2016-2017 annual catalog. I started by texturing the cardstock with the all new Petal Burst #141493 Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I then stamped the pineapple base using the Stampin Up  Pineapple #141743 stamp and hand cut it out. I stamped the leaves of the pineapple top  2 times and then hand cut out and popped them on top of one another for texture. I added the Thoughtful Banner sentiment using the Thoughtful Banner #141614 stamp set and the coordinating Duet Banner punch #141483.  The Thoughtful Banner stampset and Duet Banner can be purchased as a bundle #142330 to save 10%.
