Stake Your Claim


I really dig the Stampin Up No Bones About it #138756 stampset that I used to make this card. I have used this set for every dinosaur lover young and old on my card list. The dinosaurs were embossed using white embossing powder.  For the bones I used pieces of the Tree Builder punch #138295 buried beneath the mound of dirt. I added a fun pick stamped using the Stake your claim #139447 stamp set and cut using the coordinating Handpicked Framelits #137361 to mark the treasures!  The sentiment was from the No Bones About stamp set and was the perfect choice to complete this “dino-mite” card.

It’s a Garden Party

2015_08_01IMG_9986 For all our workshops we have a theme and then provide cute decorations, workshop packaging and other theme related goodies.  For my garden recent themed party I made this gorgeous flower using the new Cotton Paper Assortment #138308 and the Bouquet Bigz die #137367 from Stampin Up. Each petal of the flower was stamped using the Build a Bouquet (no longer available) stampset.  The Cotton paper is light weight and sturdy and is perfect for cutting accents with the Big shot.  I added a pipe cleaner for a stem and attached it to the bottom of a Cheez-it to go container that resembled a flower pot.  My Cheez-it loving customer loved her personal surprise at the garden party.

2015_08_01I also gave each guest a cute little flower in a paper pot and I added a garden stake cut using the adorable Handpicked Framelits #137361 that I embellished with images from the now retired Tag It stamp set including the super mini garden spade!

Sweet as Can Be

2015_07_15IMG_7880 Today’s card is a cute and sweet card I made for some of my summer birthday cards.  The basket was made using 1/2 of the Stampin Up Berry Basket #137366 and then I stamped the Hardwood #133032 stamp to give it a realistic look.  I filled the basket with Strawberries punched using the Sweet heart punch #133786 and the Decorative Dots #133520 Textured Impressions Embossing folder. Each strawberry is adorned with the Itty Bitty Accents #133787 and a circle and the leaves from the Bird Builder Punch.  I added the sentiment from the From the Garden #137139 (now retired) and then cut out using the coordinating Handpicked Framelits #137361. Love how berry cute this card came out!

From the Garden

2015_06_09IMG_7902 Today’s post is my favorite card from my recent Blooms and Blossoms workshop where I featured the Fresh from the Garden stamp set (now retired) and the coordinating Handpicked Framelits #137361.  The background DSP is also just recently retired from Stampin Up called Painted Blooms and it was truly gorgeous.  In the new Stampin Up catalog there is some equally beautiful called English Garden DSP #138440 that would fit the theme of this card. The fun part about this card is that I tucked a seed packet in the faux basket cut from the Stampin Up Berry basket die #137366.  I added detail to the basket buy stamping the Hardwood Background #133032 and trimmed it with a piece of rose cardstock
