Crate of Thanks

2017_07_11IMG_2213 For today’s card I was inspired by the card on page 159 of the 2017-2018 annual catalog featuring the fabulous and new Wood Crate Framelits #143730.  I love this Framelit and thought I could do without the stamp set so I did not buy the coordinating Wood Words set.  Big Mistake!  It always seems like when  I don’t buy the bundle I regret it.

For this card, I stamped the background with an image from a stamp set that has been retired for years.  I think it is called Home Grown.  I then used the Wood Crate to cut it out from the Wood Textured DSP #144177 and made the crate.  I added the hand cut carrots and added carrot tops using the retired bird builder punch. I finished with a tag tied with linen thread.

To Market To market


Sometimes the Stampin Up paper is just too pretty to cover up.  For today’s post this Farmers Market DSP #138448 speaks for itself and can stand alone to make a beautiful card.  I just added a piece of ribbon and a layered element using the retired Homegrown stampset.  This card was one of many simple Farmers Market cards.

Artichoke Thanks


Once again I went to the Stampin Up Farmers Market DSP collection to make this card.  The DSP is so fantastic that it really does not need much to make a nice card.  I added the artichoke stamp from the now retired Home grown stamp set.

2015_09_26IMG_9001 For similar card. I used the now retired DSP and randomly stamped artichokes from the Homegrown stampset and then added a strip of always artichoke cardstock and the Fabulous Four stampset #134171

Homegrown Farmers Market


I love to mix patterned paper and Stampin Up DSP collections take the guess work out of the equation. Nothing says down home like gingham from the Farmers Market DSP #138448.  I added a strip of polka dot from the same collection and then used the now retired Stampin Up Homegrown set to add a country flair with a homegrown tomato for a simple thanks.

Homegrown Birthday

 The homegrown stamp set #120486 was one of my favorites from the Stampin Up IBC but one that I seldom use.  Today Cammie used the homegrown stamp set using black and white images and then layered it on top of a black top note #113463 and then onto a crumbcake card base.  She finished the card with a piece of  crumb cake 1/2 inch seam binding #122332.  Love this clean and simple card that I just may go dust off my homegrown set and play.

Color Coach Combo Challenge #1- More Mustard

Today’s post is the first of the color coach challenge using More Mustard, Cajun Craze, and Night of Navy.  I selected this color combination so I could use the beautiful Sunflower background stamp that I won in July at Convention.  I could not believe that Cammie had the same stamp set in mind and the cards look so different.  Yvonne’s twist on the color combination was also a fall like theme.  Three cards using the same combination and all look equally great!.  Tomorrow’s color coach challenge will reveal the cards using Tangerine Tango
