Peace &Joy


Today is a simple holiday card in a non traditional color scheme.  I used the Stampin Up Swirly Bird #141749 stamp set to created the ornaments,  I added a piece of silver cording and the sentiment from the Good Greetings (retired) stamp set on the piece punched with the retired Washi Tape punch.  Easy Peasy!

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.

Festive New Year



It’s been a rough start to the new year and it is just a few hours old! Today’s late post still wishes you a happy new year! I love this card I made to bring in the new year.  It just screams for a fancy celebration.  The masquerade mask is made using the now retired Stampin Up mustache framelit and the Chalk Talk Framelits #129983 for the eye holes. I used the new coming soon blushing bride and the dazzling diamonds Glimmer paper to cut the festive feathers using the now retired Four Feathers Framelits.  I added a bow using the Silver metallic thread #138402.  The happy is cut using the Hello You Thinlits die #137363. The new year sentiment is from retired Good Greetings stampset. I added some randon colored sequins from my stash add just enough bling for a festive new year.

Christmas in July2015


Every July Cammie and I jointly host a Christmas in July workshop so that our customers can really get a jumpstart on their Christmas cards. So starting today and for the next 4 days we will feature Christmas cards that will be part of our Christmas in July workshop on the 26th of July.  Consider this a sneak peek of Christmas.

The Christmas in July workshop is the toughest workshop for me because I am just not ready for Christmas when it is hot outside.  I agonize also because Stampin Up has not introduced the full Christmas line up of new products so I challenge myself to use what ever I have on hand to make it Christmas.  So for today’s card I used a traditional color scheme of cherry cobbler and garden green for  my card. I textured the cherry cobble cardstock with the Stylish Striped Embossing folder #132174. I used the now retired Watercolor Winter stampset to randomly add pine branches on the focal panel.  I then cut an ornament from silver glimmer specialty paper using the Stampin Up Balloon Framelits #137362 The second ornament was stamped using the Celebrate Today #137138 and the now retired Good Greetings stampsets. The ornaments were popped on the card and then a string was hand drawn.  I am always happy to create a card using stuff I have on hand that is not for the intended use.

The Celebrate Today and the Balloon Framelits are a Bundle and Save 15% item from Stampin Up when the 2 items are purchased together using a single item #138869.

Stacked with Love Banners

2015_02_20IMG_6936 If you have been following my blog lately you may have noticed that I really like the Stacked with Love DSP pack from the Stampin Up occasions catalog.  For todays card, I used scraps and punched them using the Stampin Up Banner Punch #133519 from the annual catalog. I strung them together and placed them on the black background to give a chalkboard look.  I added the arrow from the What’s Up punch #133781 to highlight the Good Greetings (no longer available)sentiment.  If you take the sentiment away and replace it with a non Valentine greeting you can have a simple and fun card for most occasions

You better watch out

2014_12_24ChimneyDSCI0799 - Copy Happy Christmas Eve one and all.  Today’s post is a super cute one using all punches to create 2 cards: Santa going down the chimney and the other Santa coming up the chimney.

Cammie created the chimney / fireplace using the Ticket Duo Builder punch #126883from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  Cammie also used the Gorgeous Grunge #130517 stamp set to grunge up the mantle and the fireplace bricks. She created the background using the Good Greetings stamp set. Santa was created using a variety of Stampin Up punches.2014_12_24DSCI0805

Triangle Tree

2014_12_13IMG_4704Today’s post is a clean, simple and almost stamp free card.  I used a monochromatic color scheme and punched triangles in 3 shades of green using the  Stampin Up triangle punch #133375 and then formed a tree from the triangles. The tree trunk was punched using the banner #133519 punch.  Once I formed the tree, I ran it through  the Tiny Triangles folder #133740 and then added a gold foil star and a hand cut banner with a sentiment.

Since today I am featuring a Triangle tree card, I decided to also share a cute tree that IMG_6060I made using the Stampin Up Oct Cute as Pie My Paper pumpkin kit.   I did not use all the precut pieces from the kit to make the pie treat boxes so I created this cute  treat box for a Christmas treat for my Advent Calendar gifts.  I decorated the front of the box with a piece of DSP from the Under the Tree DSP #135835 in the Stampin Up Holiday catalog and then punched a peek a boo tree using the Tree Punch #135859.  To finish the box, I added window sheet and filled it with candy then wrapped a piece of ribbon around it and tied it with a bow.

Under the Tree

2014_12_06IMG_5319My #1 favorite thing in the Stampin Up Holiday catalog is the Under the Tree DSP #135835.  This paper is so yummy because it is cardstock weight kraft sheets with color print on one side and white printed patterns on the other. I used the paper as star accents and cut them using the Star Framelits #133723.  I paired the DSP with real red and garden green cardstock and embossed it with the Lucy Stars Textured Impressions  Embossing Folder #135817.  The large star is anchor to the sentiment and the super cute snowflake Frosted Sequin #135835.

Light Up My Life

2014_12_05IMG_6062 Today’s 2nd post is one of the adorable presents that I made for the Christmas Countdown Muffin Tin Advent calendar.  This tree was made using the October 2014 Sweet as Pie My Paper Pumpkin kit.  I stamped the flat box with random pine cones using the Christmas wishes #135107 stamp set from the Stampin Up holiday catalog.  I added random stars with using a star punch and the Star Framelits #133723 and then folded up the tree. I added a battery operated tea light that I wrapped with Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape #133000 to the bottom of the tree. I accented the tree with a real red button and a Good Greetings sentiment. When turned on the light shines thought the stars and makes for a cute mantel piece.
