Forget the cake

2015_01_26IMG_5369 Today’s post is a simple layout for a birthday card but it as always the layout can be applied to any occasion.  I used the Stampin Up Large Polka dot textured impressions folder #133739 and a strip of Sweet Taffy DSP #133693.  I cut a label using the Chalk Talk Framelit #129983.  I added the stamped image from the now retired Making Spirits Bright #135089 stamp set and colored it with Stampin Up Blendabilities.  I added some ribbon and sequins to give it some texture to complete a fun birthday greeting.

Cocktail Birthday

2015_01_16DSCI0801 (2) Cammie loves to combine multiple stamp sets and dies to create her cards. For today’s post features the Stampin Up Making Spirits Bright #135086 stamp set that is no longer available. She used the Stampin Up stamp-a-ma-jig #101049 to perfectly align the cocktails and the HAPPY HAPPY sentiment from the Happy Winter stamp set that is no longer available.  She completed the card by adding the Little Letters Thinlits #133730 for the birthday card.

Making Spirits Bright

2014_12_07IMG_5713Today’s post is a simple design that works perfectly when you have a stack of cards to make.  I decided on a traditional theme and textured the background with the On Point Textured Impressions  Embossing Folder #135876 from the Stampin Up Holiday catalog.  I added a piece of plaid DSP from the Trim a Tree DSP paper stack #135824. For the main feature, I cut a tag using the Chalk Talk Framelits #129983 and then stamped the image with the Making Spirits Bright #135089.  I used the Stampin Up Blendabilites markers to color in the image and to “colorize” the rhinestones. I added a piece of the beautiful gold satin ribbon #134547 to complete the festive tag.

Time to Get Toasty

2014_11_24DSCI0800 Today’s card is definitely a creative play on words that makes for a great fall card.  The  background paper is from the Stampin Up Color Me Autumn DSP #135820 paper pack.  To add the bonfire Cammie used The Great Outdoors #126562 and masterfully colored in the bonfire.  She dialed up the Hello Fall sentiment using the Rotary Alphabet stamp #133769 and the Time to get Toasty sentiment is from the Making Spirits Bright #135089 stamp set in the Stampin Up holiday catalog.

Love the creative use of combining these 2 stampsets to create a wonderful autumn card because nothing says fall like a nice and toasty bonfire.

Bring on the Boos

2014_10_31DSCI0787 Happy Halloween one and all.  Since it is Halloween it is time to bring on the Boos.  First up is Cammie’s very creative rendition.  She used various sizes of circle punches and even the bird wing punch to make eyes of all shapes and sizes.  She even added the fun googly eyes.  The sentiment “Bring on the”  is partially stamped from the Making Spirits Bright #135089 stamp set in the Stampin Up holiday catalog.  The BOOS is cut using the Little Letter Framelits #133730. 2014_10_31IMG_5679

I was so inspired buy Cammie’s card coupled with the fact that I bought the Making spirits bright stamp set specifically for the Bring on the Boos image and did not get around to using it until last minute when I decided to make my Bring on the Boos card. However, for my card I randomly stamped the BOO! image in 3 colors of ink from my Sept Boo-tiful My paper pumpkin kit. For the inside of the card I stamped the Bring on the Boos image from the Making Spirits Bright holiday set.

2014_10_31IMG_5684Finally, I am posting a Bring on the Boos card that I received from a customer, Elizabeth Mara.  She used the Halloween image from the Making Spirits bright stamp set and lightly colored in the booze in the glass and matted it on orange cardstock and tied with a sweet bow of bakers twine and then added it to the black chevron#127749texture embossed background layer.

So there you have it! 3 ways to bring on the Boos!
