Detailed Dragonfly

2017_07_08Richard GaraIMG_2215 I just love the details on this card just by simply using Stampin Up Framelits which also makes it quite easy.  I started with a circle cut in the top layer using the Layering Circle  Framelits #141705.  I cut 2 of the dragonfly flights from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits #142749 and glued then to the card front and cut away the excess and then layered a piece of Watercolor Wonder DSP (retired) beneath  the circle to create a sun effect.   I then cut out the big dragonfly and add a strip of rhinestones to “bling” it up! The sentiment is from the now retired Sweet Essentials stamp set.

Kinda Ecclectic Mother’s Day

2015_05_13IMG_6982Happy Mother’s Day to all our blog followers that are mothers.  My mother’s day card features the Kinda Ecclectic #135347 stamp set.  The name of this stamp set kinda says it all. There’s a little of everything here, but they all work together for some unique layering and depth to your projects. I  layered my eclectic panel on top of a piece of the soon to be retiring Lullaby DSP #133695 and a sentiment from the now retired Stampin Up Sweet Essentials stamp set hand cut into a banner.

Six Sided wreath

2013_12_21IMG_0019

Today’s post is one that I made for my 6 sided workshop.  I used the Hexagon punch #130919 to punch 12 hexagons and then layered them to form the wreath.  I added the seam binding bow and accented the wreath with rhinestones that I colored with a red Sharpie marker.  I hand cut the banner and added a sentiment from the Sweet Essentials #126457 stampset.

Oh Washi Tree

2013_11_25IMG_3840Oh Washi Tree, Oh Washi Tree?  However green you are.  Today’s the 25th and just 30 days until Christmas so I am posting a Christmas card.  The card uses mostly old & retired products but is fun none the less.  The background paper is retired and the tree window was cut using the holiday dies from last season.  But underneath the tree I used some of the festive Christmas Season of Style Washi tape#132155 from the Stampin Up holiday catalog.  I topped the tree with a star punched out of the red glimmer paper #121790.  I added the sentiment from the Sweet Essentials #126457 stamp set.  This card was fun to make and easy enough to produce a stack for Christmas cards

25th of the Month so It’s a Banner Day

2013_08_25HappyHolidays_cammieIt’s the 25th of the month so it is truly a banner day for a Christmas card. For this card, Cammie used last years Stampin Up Christmas Cheer (now retired) DSP to make this super quick and easy card. The banner was hand cut and matted in Cherry Cobbler cardstock. The focal piece is an elongated Apothecary Accents framelit #127003 and she created an elongated window using the Word Window punch #119857.

This layout will work with any DSP and stampsets but why not get started on some easy Christmas cards using the new Christmas DSP in the Stampin Up Holiday catalog?
