This set is turning out to be one of my go to sets from the OC, Picture Perfect Birthday, page 5.  I used the Stamparatus to perfectly place the images and the colors I used were Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Pacific Point.  The background paper is from the DSP Stack Tutti Frutti 6X6, page 29 of the OC. I used both Whisper White regular and Heavy card stock for my base card.

This is one of my favorite Thinlit sets, Celebrate you pg17, from SAB.  I embossed the butterfly, from Beautiful Day, pg 26 OC, with Copper embossing powder.  I used watercolor paper and filled the image with water.  I then sprinkled Brusho color, pg 20 OC, on the water and used an aqua painter to move the color around.  Colors I used were Brilliant Red, Yellow and Gamboge.  After the image was dried, I sprinkled yellow on the front of the card and gently spritzed with water to provide the background.  I selected Basic Black card stock for the sentiment and cut it out with the Big shot, pg 209 of the AC. Multipurpose adhesive sheets, pg 203, AC, were used to adhere the sentiment to the card front.

I created this fun card with the stamp set, We Must Celebrate, page 39 OC.  The sentiment is from the SAB catalog, page 17, which you can get FREE with a $100 purchase in product.  I used Myths & Magic, glimmer paper, page 37 OC, for the sentiment.  I embellished with Glitter enamel dots, page 196 AC.  In addition, I used the SU Blends, page 30, OC, to color the images.

Here I covered a pizza box (carried over from the Holiday catalog – Mini pizza boxes (8) use product code 44645, $6.00) with the DSP Painted with Love, page 19 of the OC.  I put this on the sides and top of the box.  We made this at Camp on Saturday and everyone fell in love with this DSP.  I used the Ombre ribbon, page 198, in the AC.  Cut the heart out from our Gold foil paper, page 194, AC with our framelits, Sweet & Sassy page 214, AC.

I am in love with the DSP, Painted with Love, page 10 of the OC.  It is my fav paper ever.  I used this as background on this card stamped with last year’s stamp, Bloomin’ Love, page 88 of the AC.  I used Whisper white card stock and cut out the hearts from the DSP using the Big shot Sweet & Sassy Framelits on page 214 AC.  In addition, I embellished the front of the card with the Metallic Enamel shapes, page 196 of AC.  I used the Framelit to cut out the banner from the set Large Numbers Framelits, page 215 of AC.

This set is so awesome!  You can find this set, Coffee Cafe’ on page 31 of the AC.  It has matching dies, Coffee Cups Framelits, page 213, matching DSP, Coffee Break, page188, Corrugated Elements, page 196.  It also has a Cardstock pack that matches all the colors in the DSP.

The best part: You can bundle the set and dies and receive a 10% discount.  This is going to be a fantastic item for the Holidays.  I can see this being used for SB gift cards, etc.  The coffee splatter is made with our new Embossing Paste, page 201.  I dyed the paste with Soft Suede ink.  The stencil, however, is not SU.   It is Tim Holz and I have had it a long time for use in my Art journals.

Card stock used is Very Vanilla over Soft Suede and based on Crumb Cake.

I really love this incolor and will be sorry to see it go.  But we do have some beautiful new incolors to replace the outgoing ones.  Certainly makes it interesting every year.  Fortunately there were no changes to our core colors this year.
I used a mint macaron wash for the background on whisper White card stock and die cut the flowers and leaves with the Stylist Stems Framelits dies on page 42 of the OC.  I used the SAB glimmer paper in addition to the Mint macaron sheer ribbon found on page 178 in the AC.

I am really disappointed that this set, page 48 of the OC is retiring.  As far as I know, the Build it framelits dies have already been sold out.  Since this is such an awesome masculine set and it went over so well with just about all of our customers around the world, maybe SU will think of designing another set with matching dies in the future.  I am hoping that maybe they will decide to come back with this set.  Wouldn’t that be nice.  Wishful thinking!
Colors I used were Soft Suede, Smokey Slate and Crumb cake.  I added the Urban Underground Embellishments on page 47.

This was created with the stamp set Dragofly Dreams, page 26 in the OC.  I used black embossing powder and tempting turouoise ink.  I used the Metalic enamel shapes, page 177 of the AC.  One really great set because of the fantastic sentiments and will be very versatile because of it.  In addition, it has its own diecuts, Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits on the same page and can be purchased as a bundle with a 10% discount.  This set will be held over, along with the thinlits to the new annual catalog.  However, the bundled discount will not be available after May 31st.

My youngest, Maureen Erin (Mo), will be 29 today and I am so blessed to have such a thoughtful and loving daughter.  She is also a Demonstrator and so much fun to be around.  My oldest daughter, Amy,  also a blessing, is a Demonstrator but she lives in TN and I do not get to see her as much.  However, we all try to plan SU conventions and on stage locals together.  We all love Stampin’up! © and look forward to doing all things that bring us closer together.  This is just one of the ways and it is so rewarding.

Ok, I am obsessed with this stamp set, Nailed it, page 48, oc.  I love the fact that there are die cuts that go with these stamps and I think I have made at least 5 or 6 different cards with them so far.  The possibilities are endless.  What I love about this set are all the embellishments, washi tape and DSP that you can use with it.  These are all listed on page 47 along with the lovely embossing folder, Hexagons Dynamic Textured impressions.  In addition, another stamp set in this same catalog, Urban District can also be combined to make dozens of masculine cards for Dad or the men in your life.  Save 10% by buying the bundle.

I cased this card from a You Tube video a while back and now I cannot find the name of the person who created it.  If any of you out there know who I owe this inspiration to, please let me know so I can give her credit.
Both the dies and stamp set can be purchased together to save a 10% discount.  I used silver foil, Island Indigo, and Whisper White Card stock.  In addition, I used A little Foxy DSP, page 174 in the AC.  The embellishments, Urban Underground, page 47, are from the OC.  This is the coolest bundle, I love everything that goes with it.  No problem making masculine cards with this set.

This has got to be one of my favs in the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  I used the Hexagons Dynamic Embossing folder found on page 47 of the OC for the background by brayering the inside of the EF in Delightful Dijon ink.  I used the Stitched layering oval dies for the images and sentiment.  Whisper white CS and Delightful Dijon finished off the card.
