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.

This card was created using the set, Cookie Cutter Christmas, page 6 of the HC.  The sentiment is from the set, Oh, What Fun, found on page 31 of the AC.  I used the Warmth & Cheer washi Tape from the HC, page 13 of the HC.  This is one of those Clean and Simple cards.  Hope you like it.

I painted this tree, from Santa’s Sleigh, on water color paper and then cut it out with the matching Thinlits dies, page 24 of the HC.  Tha Santa was stamped from the set Cookie Cutter Christmas, also on water color paper, and cut out with the matching punch, page 6 of the HC.

I used the negative piece of the cut out tree as a stencil, and sponged the tree on the card front.  I then, popped up with dimensionals, the cut tree and laid it on top of the stenciled image.  The sentiment is from the set Reason for the season, page 34 of the AC.   I thought it needed a little something so I added the Brights Sequins, page 177 in the AC.  It sounds like a lot of work but it was pretty simple.  What do you think?

Every now and then I like to do a clean and simple (CAS) card.  This stamp set, Cookie Cutter Halloween, page 53 of the HC, fits the bill for CAS.  Here I used the little scarecrow and colored him with our markers, and punched him out with the Cookie Cutter Builder punch, page 6 of the HC .  For the background I used the set Gorgeous Grunge, page 123 of the AC.  In addition, also from the AC, the sentiment is from the set Endless Thanks, page 42.  Hope you like it!

The background is created using the DSP, Halloween Specialty, page 51 of the HC.  The stamp sets used are Cookie Cutter Halloween, page 53, and Sweet Home, page 40, of the HC.  The cute little spooky house is cut out from the DSP above.  I just love this pack of DSP, it is so versatile that you can use it both for Halloween and Fall cards.  Of course, the little Mummy is cut out with the Cookie Cutter punch on page 6 of the HC.

I made this card with the set Cookie Cutter Halloween, page 53 of the HC, and Teeny Tiny Wishes, page 90 of the AC.  I sponged leaves cut out with the Leaflets Framelits, page 193 of the AC, with Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry.  The embellishments are the Delicate White Doilies and the 2015-17 In-color doilies both on page 175 of the AC.  I used the Burlap Ribbon 178 of the AC in back of the sentiment.  DSP is In-color 2015-17.

It’s a funny thing about Halloween cards.  I love to make them but I rarely send them except to little ones.  They are so much fun to put together and I always end up with a ton of unsent cards so if you need some let me know.  I also have friends that do not celebrate this Holiday so they are not interested in making Halloween cards.

This card is made with the stamp sets Cookie Cutter Halloween, page 53, Jar of Haunts, page 55, and Ghoulish Grunge, page 52 of the HC.  I just love the little spiders, they are so stinkin’ cute!  If you love Halloween and making cards you will be in love with everything SU put together in this HC.  So much to pick from being scary to being cute and funny.

I love these little guys from the Cookie Cutter Halloween set on page 53.  They also go with the punch on page 6, both in the HC.  Here I used the leaves from the stamp set, Vintage Leaves, page 37 in the AC.  I used the In-color DSP Delightful Dijon page, 169 in the AC.  In addition, I used the Ghoulish Grunge stamp for the background.  This set can be found on page 52 of the HC.  Love this set and hope they carry it over after the Holidays.

From the HC, this 3D item is what we made at Camp on Saturday.  The DSP is Halloween Night Specialty paper and I cut the bag out with our Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, page 191 in the AC.  I used the Scalloped Tag Topper punch, page 186 to make the tag and decorated it with the stamps from Sweet Home.  The Bow is made from the new Halloween Night Baker’s Twine and fastened with the Gold Binder clips, page 177.  Imagine how cool this would be filled with candy for that special little Trick or Treater.

These little guys are so darn cute.  They are from the stamp set, Cookie Cutter Christmas in the HC and so is the sentiment.  The DSP is Candy Lane Christmas and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  I cut these guys out with the matching Punch, Cookie Cutter Builder, also in the HC.  You can buy both the stamp set and the punch as a bundle and get a 10% discount.  Great deal!

13. August 2016 · Comments Off on Fancy Flowers · Categories: Cards · Tags: , , ,

I created this card using the images from the set, Flower Shop, page 105 with the matching Pansy punch, page 187.  I was really in a punch type mood all this week.  Maybe it was because I rec’d my new goodies last week that included new punches and decided that I haven’t used my old ones in awhile.
The leaves are cut out with the Framelits, Botanical Builder found on page 194 and stamped with the set Botanical Blooms, page 142.  I added Enamel Shapes, page 177, to the center of the flowers.Colors used were Burmuda Bay, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Basic Black Achrival Ink.
The background paper is from Pop of Pink Specialty DSP, page 172.  In addition, I added the new Black Metallic thread, page 178, behind the sentiment, found on page 86 with the Tin of Stamps set.

I got the idea for this card from the gallery in Stampin’ Connection.  I had saved this to my favorites on my Mac, but I cannot remember who the demo was.  If you know, please let me know so I can give her credit.  I have changed most of the stamps used, and the sentiment, except for Butterfly Basics, page 113, and Flower Shop, page 105, and colors have been cased.  Grateful for the inspiration.

This little racoon was made with the awesome stamp set, Foxy Friends, page 57 and the matching punch, Fox Builder, page 188.  You can make all kinds of critters with this punch.  You can get both the stamp set and the punch in a bundle with a 10% discount.  A great deal.  I also used the stamp set My Hero, page 209, which is the Ronald McDonald Charities set.  SU donates a portion of sales of this set to the RMHC.  Many images in this set go with our punches and dies.  Colors I used on this card besides Basic Black are Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy.

I created this card with the set, Bunch of Blossoms, page 69, that also comes as a bundle (142345), with the matching punch.  You can build up your flowers as I have in this post or you can stamp them, two step.  Either way they are lovely.  You can make a variety of flowers and the sentiments in this set are an extra added bonus.  The washi Tape can be found on page 179 and is called Playful Palette.

I know, isn’t this the cutest little fox you have ever seen?  You are going to see plenty of little forest animals this new catalog year.  This set is called Foxy Friends and can be found on page 57.  There is an entire two page spread just on this set with the matching punch.  You can get this set and punch at a discount if you buy them as a bundle (142326).
That is what I did and used both to cut out my little fox.  Everything is there for you, it’s a real no-brainer.  See all the different animals you can make with this set and the punch.  Unbelievable!  The sentiment I got from the new set Flourishing Phrases, page 49.  I used the DSP, A Little Foxy paper stack on page 174.

We made this card at our Friday night club.  It is a large stamp from the new catalog to be released on the 1st of June.  Please contact me if you need one.  On this one I used Crushed Curry and Emerald Envy.  In addition, I used the metallic sequin emellishments.  The corners were cut out with the Curvy Corner Trio punch.  This punch is retiring and you can still get it on the retiring list through the end of May.

I have some people who tell me their favorite color is Melon Mambo.  I love it too and that is why I used it on this card.  All of the images below, including the sentiment, is being carried over to the new catalog.  However, the polka dot DSP is new and you are going to love this pack.  Colors are white, black and Melon Mambo.  So cool!

Y’all know how I love vintage…….well this card just screams vintage!  I used the DSP, English Garden, page 142 and typeset, also in the AC.  I punched the flowers out with the Flower Medallion punch, page 167 AC, and used a vintage brad in the center.  Ribbon is Sahara Sand 7/8″ Lace trim, page 159 AC.  Sentiment is from Suite Sayings, page 41 of the OC (being carried over to new catty).

I have enjoyed using this set, page 35 of the OC.  Especially because of the matching Framelits.  Here I used the Gold Vellum DSP and embellished it with gold Thread and Mint Macaron Enamel Dots, page 6 of the OC.  Behind the vellum I used the white corrugated paper, page 148 of the AC, and the gold foil DSP, same page.

This set is a hostess set that you can find on page 51 of the OC.  You can only get this set if you are a Hostess of a workshop of $150 or hold a book party of $150, or if you are a member of one of my clubs.  These ladies all get the opportunity to be a hostess every six months.  I used Mint Macaron and Smoky Slate.

I just found this card and realize I never posted it during Sale-A-Bration, which is now over.  But those of you that were able to get this set will have another idea of how to use it.  I also used the glimmer tape that they offered the weeks ending SAB.  The DSP is from the Stack of DSP called Going Places, page 39 in the OC along with the Bow paper clips found on page 9.

This stamp set, First Sight, page 36 of the OC, is the perfect set if you are thinking of sending cards to your Mom, someone you love, or your BFF.  I used the colors Tempting Turquoise, Calypso Coral and Sahara Sand.  The DSP is from the Sweet Li’l Things, page 143 n the AC.  The flourish can be used on a variety of cards for all occasions.  To give it more texture I used it Sahara Sand full strength and stamped off.

Here is that set again, Party Wishes, page 5, OC, and the match DSP, It’s My Party is used on the background.  So festive!  Who wouldn’t love this card on their special day?  The balloons were punched out with one of the punches from the trio Party Punch Pack, page 4.  The fancy pre-tied bow is from the kit, Love Blossoms Embellishments, page 17.  I think that really sets this card off, don’t you?  My Friday night ladies loved it!
