Tea Time


I know, I know - there is NO sentiment. I left it out on purpose so this card can be a birthday, sympathy, note card, etc. You just never know what kind of card you will need next.


The base is Whisper White (Sorry it looks Very Vanilla on the scan. I cut the frame using the largest stitched frame die with the smaller one inside to make a cute frame. It is adhered the Dimensionals.

The stamp set is Tea Together and cut with matching framelits. All images were colored using the Blends. The mat paper is retired. I love this stamp set!

Early Christmas

This cute stamp was given to me - and I loved it. Thank you, Shirley. I plan on making some more for Christmas but I wanted to share this one. The base is Very Vanilla and the mat (which has the stamped image) was distressed on the edges and dragged over the Gold stamp pad to give it dimension and it was adhered with Dimensionals.


Hope you like it. It is really a cute stamp.

Until next time have a blessed day!

'Princess Scarlett'

I love this picture of Miss Scarlett. I used two programs to remove the background and insert the cherry blossom trees. Turned out lots better than I thought.


The base is Rich Razzleberry with a sheet of matching Designer Paper (retired). I added the butterflies with pearls as an accent. The title is a Free download from Treasure Box Designs!

Peace

A friend of mine gave me a few of her old stamps Sunday and I made this card for Christmas. I love the stamp and design. I used Very Vanilla paper and distressed the mat after coloring. I then ran gold ink around the edge.


I wish I had been more careful distressing the paper but I still like it! The mat is on Dimensionals.

Miss Josie lost both front teeth at the same time.


I don't think I posted this already but if I did it's called a 're-run'!

Makes a great gift!

Climbing Roses

This set, Climbing Roses, is retired but I still love it. It is fun to color and has matching framelits. The base is Grapefruit Groove with matching Gingham paper from a 6x6 paper stack.


I really fell in love with this card. I had enough of the gingham to line the envelope top only. I used the Light Calypso Coral to color the flowers and Granny Apple Green for the leaves. The frame is on Dimensionals and cut using the largest and 3rd largest stitched rectangle dies.

Geared up Garage

Geared up to celebrate! This is one of the best masculine stamp sets from Stampin Up. It also has a matching 6x6 paper pad.


The little wrench accents the black ribbon streamer. All the images are from that same stamp set. the Gas Can and Tool Box were colored with Stampin Up's Blends. I used the punch to punch the sentiment and I punched it twice to cut it down. Then I punched the gray mat leaving it full size! Worked perfectly!

Retirement

On to Adventure is the stamp set that is featured on this card. The base is Blueberry and the images are on Very Vanilla. The set has two gals and two guys and is really great for retirement or moving on in a new job or just moving.


I used a makeup brush to add the blue for the sky. Look how smooth it is. Sequins were added for accent and the sentiment was stamped with Garden Green.

The Spirit of Love

I know its a bit early for Christmas but could not resist. The set is from Stampin Up 2000 - The Spirit of Love. I stamped it in gold and there is a beautiful verse on the inside. I used the Rainbow die to cut the top and bottom of the image.


I stamped the envelope with a tree from the Cuckoo Clock dies and the image is mounted on gold paper. Lovely!

Trucks Galore

Two things - the little packing box that is exactly like a Stampin Up Box is so cute for small gifts. The truck is a 3D Framelit. I think I am doing something wrong 'cause I can't get the tail gate to do right but my grandkids love 'em.


The first one (Lovely Lilac - retired) was just for practice. The Delightful Daffodil truck was done correctly and stamped BUT I still am having issues with the tail gate. Will try one more time. Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time have a blessed day!

Bird Ballad

This card was made using the envelope and cardstock base from the Bird Ballad. It is so nice and could also be done as a Rustic Retreat card. I used the Free as a Bird stamp set and the matching dies for the focal point on the card.


It also comes with envelope (already cut) inserts to match up with your card. I also put a white insert inside to write your message.

Bird Ballad

Don't you just love the Stampin Up Card Kits. Besides getting lots of cards you get everything to make them. This card is from the Bird Ballad Kit. It contains the new laser cut cards with matching scalloped envelopes.


I lined the laser cut side with a piece of the new Magnolia Designer Paper and fussy-cut the magnolia on the front. Its adhered with Dimensionals. I used a retired laser label for the sentiment.  I'll be making lots more of these.

Another Rustic Retreat

Cherry Cobbler stamped with the Buffalo Check background stamp is the base for this card. The leaves were cut from gold paper from Floral Framelits.


The images are all from the Rustic Retreat. I made a fluffy bow using brown baker's twine for accent. I think it makes a nice Christmas Card especially masculine.

Blocking different colors or papers is a great way to use scraps and still make an attractive card.
