Dashing Deer

I just received from the man in brown my pre-order from Stampin Up for the Occasions Holiday Catalog.  Dashing Deer caught my eye and I quickly made this card! I only used the matching framelits but the stamp set is fantastic too. Great Sayings!


The card base is Basic Black with a Granite Grey Mat rounded off on two corners. The deer and flourishes are from the Detailed Deer Thinlits.  Don't you just love the Broadway Bound Special Designer Paper with the gold, gray and black random dots!

Until next time!

Triple Folded Halloween

A friend of mine suggested I try this card and guess what, I did! I am sorry to say I don't have many Halloween stamps so I had to improvise until I get some stamps. It folds to a 4 x 4 card.




This is cut from a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock. It's scored at 2", 4", 8", 10" - rotate paper and score at 4" and 8" then cut out the 4 corners and start folding!  It is a really cute design and later I think I may try a spring, flowered card instead of Halloween. It was a fun card to try.

Until next time have a blessed day!

A different kinda card...

One of my Stampin Up buddies showed me this card and naturally I had to try it. I plan on adding a sentiment in the bottom and adding embellishments on the two blank folds (green mat). The base is Rich Razzleberry with Mossy Meadow as the second color. The Designer Paper is from Share What You Love and it is gorgeous.




The card is 6 x 6 and I made an envelope for it. If you don't decorate the envelope, you actually can mail this card or embellish the envelope and hand-deliver. I hope you like it as much as I do. Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Sympathy

This card was actually CASE'd from the catalog. I needed a quick sympathy card and it fit the bill! I used the new Stained Glass Vellum Paper Stack, Granite Gray for a card base and Basic Black for the cut out.


It's not my style of card but I do love the new Stained Glass Vellum Paper Stack. It is so easy to color using the Blends on the BACKSIDE of the paper and then the front looks like the black lines are embossed! Oh and I tried the new mats for using your framelits as embossing tools ... note the gray strip above the black cut-out. It is embossed using the same framelit.

In order to get the vellum on the mat, I painted the Mono-glue on the back side fully covering the picture and that way the glue does not show. Don't know who came up with that but it sure does work.

Have a great day!

Until next time have a blessed day!

Oldies...

Well ladies I found this card base (color unknown) and the mat and the frame I cut from the new Stitched Seasons Framelits. It's all dressed up with the Various Vases. I cut the Tranquil Tide 'leaves' from those Framelits as well.


The vases are Cajun Craze; the mat is Sahara Sand and I found this matching printed piece to complete the look. I did NOT put a sentiment because I think it would do well as a birthday, sympathy, note card, etc. But there is room for one.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Bokeh Background stamp!

This is our third Stamp A Stack Card (Saturday, Aught 18). We'll make 4 of these and it would be beautiful in different colors too.


These are two of the new colors at Stampin Up - Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather. I used the Various Vases (by Mary Fish). There a number of vases you can use and sentiments and flowers!

Until next time have a blessed day!

Another Sample

Again using the Broadway Designer Paper this card can be a note card, a masculine card or just to say I'm thinking about you.


There are so many classy designs and the gold foil sets it off!

Until next time!

Happy Birthday

This card is made from the new Broadway Bound Designer Paper. It is gorgeous and very classy! I cut the front about 3/4" off and put Whisper White inside. There is plenty of room to right a note, send as a birthday card, masculine card - all by changing the sentiment.


This will be one of our August Stamp A Stack cards and we'll put different designer paper on the front for different occasions. I used gold paper for the Happy Birthday Framelit.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Joy & Noel

Joy & Noel is a new set included in the NEW and upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog which will be out toward the end of August and order-able September 1. I don't think order-able is a word but it was a fun one!


The mat paper is the new designer paper - Under the Mistletoe. It has lots of beautiful Christmas papers included. I used some old, retired Confetti Stampin Up paper which I hated to see it go. I know you will love the new catalog and the new fun stamps.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Postcard Pals

Another Postal Pal card that I am saving for any occasion and can add the sentiment later. I think we will be doing these at our next Stamp A Stack in August.



The Pelican is so cute. I think they all are just darling and great for coloring. They would make a nice gift set! (idea). I used the new Stampin Up Blends and I understand more colors maybe in the future.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great stampin' day.

Until next time!
