All Things Tropic

2018_09_11 For my card today I used the entire product line from the Tropical Escape  Suite from Stampin Up.  I used the Tropical Escape # 146916 DSP and then added a piece of the Granny Apple Green 1/2 in Textured Weave Ribbon #146920.  For the floral cluster, I stamped the images with the Tropical Chic #146750 stamp set and cut them out using the coordinating Tropical Thinlits #146831 Dies and anchored them to a Stitched Shapes #145372 piece and a Scalloped Circle #141705 mat.

Tropical Goodness

2018_09_01IMG_3554

For today’s card I randomly stamped the leaf images from the Tropic Chic #146753 stamp set from Stampin Up.  to get the texture I then used the Tropical Thinlits #146831 and the Big Shot Embossing Mats #146327 so that I could use the framelits to emboss the background.  This technique using the Embossing Mats allows you use your framelits for more than cutting.  I added the sentiment is from the now retired So Many Shells Stampin Up stamp set.

So Much to Love

2018_08_17IMG_3437 Today’s card is all about Abstract Impressions for creating a card with a lasting impression.  I paired the Garden Impressions #146289 DSP with the Abstract Impressions #147513 stamp set from Stampin Up to make a card with a statement.

Share What You Love Florals

2018_08_13IMG_3420 The Floral papers in the Share What You Love #146926  Specialty DSP collection from Stampin Up.  I especially love this piece of the handpainted flowers in the blue greens,  For this card, I used lots of layering card stocks (tranquil tide, mint macron and white)to bring out the rich colors of from the floral piece.  The Mint Macron layer was textured using the Layered Leaves #143704 Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. For the sentiment I stamped the image from the Picture Perfect Birthday #145519 stamp set onto a Stitched Shapes #145372 piece and I added a piece of Tranquil Tide ribbon to add a little texture to an otherwise simple layout.

Bright and Beautiful

I have started to feel so comfortable mixing patterned papers together because Stampin Up makes it so easy when they coordinate their DSP collections.  For today’s card, I   wanted to use the new Mango Melody cardstock from the Stampin Up’s recent revamped Brights Collection.  I textured the base layer using the Petal Burst #141493 Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. As luck would have it Mango Melody is one of the colors in the Garden Impressions #146289 DSP collection.  For the sentiment I stamped images from the Abstract Impressions #147513 stamp set onto a Stitched Oval #145372 and then added the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday #145519 stamp set.2018_07_12IMG_3448

Naturally Eclectic

2018_07_03IMG_3406 What I truly love about pretty paper is that it can stand alone and make a beautiful card.  The case in point is today’s card featuring the gorgeous paper from the now retired Naturally Eclectic DSP collection from Stampin Up.  I added a ribbon (my second love behind paper) and the sentiment from the Barn Door #145865 stamp set stamped onto a Stitched Shapes #145372 piece and matted on a Starburst #143717 mat.

Best Dad Ever

2018_06_17IMG_3048 Happy Father’s Day.  Today’s card is my favorite one I created in my masculine workshop class and my favorite card using the Stampin Up Apron of Love #145835 stamp set and the coordinating Apron Builder Framelit #145661.  The checkerboard background was done using the Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372 and is the perfect setting for the BBQ card.
