Happy Bee-day


Today’s birthday card mixes some old Stampin Up product with new to create a very punny card! We can all appreciate a good pun. The Pun Intended #141804 stamp set is sure to make you chuckle and smile. Spread that cheer using this set to make a wonderfully punny card. The background DSP is from the retired Back to Black paper.  For the focal panel I randomly stamped the bees from the Pun Intended, colored them and then added Wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle.  I  setalso added randomly stamped mulit colored party hats using the retired 2016 Occassions Hello stamp set. The sentiment is from the Pun Intended set.  For fun, I fringed the bottom layer of the card using the Stampin Up Fringed scissors #133325

Bee Happy


I was cleaning up my craft table and found some pieces of DSP and cardstock that reminded me of bees so I pulled out the Stampin Up Hostess set- Pun Intended # 141804 stampset to add the bees.  Once they were colored in, I added the gold Wink of Stella and used the piercing tool to make the trails. To fill in the spaces I added the smiley faces from the retired Sale a Bration Hello stamp set.  The sentiment from the retired Stampin Up Picture This stamp set ties it all together!

Hello Birthday Girl


It’s already day 4 in my birth month posts and today is a super simple layout featuring some of the new products in the Stampin Up Occasion catalog and free items from the on going annual Sale-a-bration.  The background DSP is from the free Wild Flowers DSP #141022collection in the SAB catalog.  The sentiment from the Hello Stampset is also from the SAB however it is no longer available because it was a limited item.  Don’t worry though Stampin Up has added 3 new items that are free during the remainder of the annual SAB campaign. To complete the card, I added the sweet flower cut using the Botanical Blooms framelits dies.

Conversation Hearts


Today’s post is a sweet alternate way to use my January Cute Conversations My Paper Pumpkin Kit.  Rather than making the heart garland or treats as proposed in the kit, I decided to pair the big hearts with the Stampin Up It’s My Party DSP paper stack # 140552 from the Occasions catalog and the Cherry On Top #138443 DSP from the 2015-2016 annual catalog.  The hello greeting is from the Hello #141240 stamp set in   Stampin Up Sale-a-bration catalog and the You’re Sweet sentiment is from the Cute Conversations paper pumpkin kit.

The Hello stamp set is free during sale-a-bration for every $50 spend in merchandise, you earn free product from the SAB catalog.  However the Hello stamp set and a few other items will be replaced with new items on Feb 16th so be sure to check out the limited SAB items and stock up.

Hello My friend -Doily Workshop

For the Hello Doily workshop, Cammie and I created cards using anything doily related.  This included the flirtatious DSP, the doily triple punch, the delicate doilies stamp set, and the doily border punch.  Since we live in separate states 1400 miles apart we come up with a theme and then create our designs and then we prep the kits and host the workshops using all the cards created.  We can say that we keep the USPS in business with all the mailing back and forth but it makes for a fun workshop.

Today’s post is one of my cards featuring the my friend stamp set and the doily border punch and surprising I even used eggplant cardstock, which is out of my comfort zone.  Stay tuned for more of the cards from the hello doily workshop in subsequent posts.
