Best Thoughts


I always try to have sympathy cards on hand so I am ready to pop a card in the mail.  For today’s card I used a strip of Irresistibly Yours DSP and brayered it with Wisteria Wonder ink and I added a piece of coordinating ruffled ribbon along the edge.  For the main panel, I used the Stampin Up Painted Petals (now retired) stamp set and paired it with the Best Thoughts #138700 stampset.

The Best Thoughts stamp set is one of Stampin Up’s all new Hostess sets in the 2015-2016 annual catalog.

Stars and Stripes 4ever

2015_05_25IMG_7152 A great big birthday shout out to our baby sister Blair and a happy Memorial Day to everyone!  Since it is memorial day and Blair’s birthday I thought a stars and stripes card would be perfect for the day.  The starts and stripes panel started out as the Stampin Up Irresistibly Yours DSP that was part of the Sale-a-bration and no longer available but good news, the new catalog has the resist paper with different designs.  I used a brayer to color the stars and stripes and then added the sentiment from the Stampin Up Bravo photopolymer stamp set #135380.

Lemons Journal

2015_04_20DSCI0806 Today’s post is a fabulous journal that Cammie made using the Stampin Up kraft journal #135718 as the base.  Cammie always has a fresh journal in her purse, car, house to keep herself organized.   She also likes to give them as gifts so she always makes them so she has a few on hand.

This journal  has a pool party base layer that is silver embossed using the Stampin Up Gorgeous Grunge stamp set #130517.  The rest of the journal was designed using the now retired Sale-a-bration products: Irresistibly Yours DSP cut into a banner and sponged with pear pizazz ink to reveal the white embossed leaves on the DSP.  The other banner was stamped with versa mark using the Stampin Up Happy Thing stamp set and then embossed with silver embossing powder.  She finished the journal by adding the sentiment multiple times across the bottom of the journal in random pattern.

Birthday Cake Case

2015_04_13DSCI0815 (2) Today’s post is a card that Cammie made as a CASE (Copy and Steal Everything) from the Stampin Up Sale-a-Bration catalog featuring the Big Day #139109 (No longer available). Cammie started with a crumb cake base and textured it with the Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folders #133739 .  The scalloped edge piece, Cammie used the Stampin Up Scalloped Edge Border Punch #119882  on a piece of the Irresistably Yours DSP.  The DSP was colored using Stampin Up blendablities markers (no longer available).  She also used the Blendabilites to change the color of the sparking dots on the card.  The dots were punched from silver glimmer paper and then colored with the blendabilites to make a custom color.

Although a lot the items used on this card are no longer available we like to show samples for those customers who have ordered products and are wondering what to do with it.

Irresistible Birthday

2015_03_23IMG_6998 For todays card I used a classic layout featuring 2 patterned papers from 2 different DSP collections in the Stampin Up Sale-a-bration catalog.  The upper layer is from the Best Year Ever DSP #138633 and the bottom layer is from the yummy Irresistibly  Yours #138635 DSP paper collection.  What makes this card so fun is the Irresistibly Yours paper is a white paper with glossy white pattern that is revealed with a coloring technique-sponging,brayering, spritzing or coloring with Stampin Up Blendabilities.  I used the brayer with Crushed Curry ink and the white dots really popped out.

I separated the 2 DSP papers with a piece of satin pool party ribbon.  The happy sentiment is cut with the Hello You Thinlits and the coordinating Crazy About You #138859 stamp set.  The Hello You and the Crazy About You Stampset are a Bundle and Save item when purchased together (wood #139324, clear #139325 and Photopolymer #138873) you can save 15%.

Irresistibly Yours

2015_02_04IMG_6902I needed a  sympathy card and wanted to use some of my new stuff so today’s post is what I came up with.  I started out by brayering the Free DSP-Irresistibly Yours #138635 paper with 3 shades of blue ink.  The DSP is white with white embossing so that as you colorize the embossed image resists the ink to reveal the pattern. I used a paper towel to buff the image.

I stamped a flower in Black ink from the now retired Stampin up Watercolor Wonder stamp set. I added 3 pieces of the 1/8″ black taffeta ribbon #119261.  I added a beautiful butterfly cut from the all new Butterfly Thinlits Die #137360 and added rhinestone accents.  I used the Stampin Up blendabilities to colorize the rhinestones.  Warning the Butterfly is an intricate piece so you will need to add a piece of wax paper between the cardstock and the die to make it easier to remove the little detail pieces.  Also the Butterfly Thinlit is available as a bundle and save item with the Butterfly Basics stamp set #138316.  You can save 15% when purchasing them together as 1 item number (wood: #139322,Clear#139323 & polymer #138865)

The beautiful Irresistibly Yours DSP is available in the Stampin Up Sale-a-bration catalog as a free item with every $50 spent you can select an item for free.  The Sale-a-bration campaign is ongoing thru 31 March and is a great time to stock up and get free goods too!
