TBT Liberty For All

Hi!  I decided to do a Throw Back Thursday with a twist.  This card wasn’t made back in the day – but it is using 2 retired stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!  I was playing around for a design for my son’s Thank You cards for his Eagle Court Of Honor and here is what I designed using the Liberty For All and Wonderful Words.

 SU! Liberty For All, Wonderful Words

What do you think?  The card stock colors and markers are all current – Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Real Red, Whisper White and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper (tho it is hard to see the sparkle of the stars in this picture).  I really like how this turned out – now to see if it passes approval.

One last note for you today, Bonus Days are here!!  From now until July 31, for every $50 US you spend in one order (prior to S/H and tax) you will earn a coupon from Stampin’ Up! for $5 to spend on an order August 2-31st.  How cool is that?  Just shop on-line here:  Teresa’s On-line Store

Mixed Textures

Hi!  How are you today?  Did you check out the Team Stamp It! New Catalog Blog Hop yet?  If not, check out my post from Saturday and make sure to leave a comment so you can be entered into the give away!

Today, I have a card for you featuring the new Mixed Borders set.  I love that the border stamp has an opening for your sentiment.  I paired the set with Timeless Textures.

MixedTextures_small_wm  Trying to work on my “collage” technique – slowly getting there – but it does take a bit.  If you haven’t noticed, my style is more “clean” – but I do like how this one turned out.  What do you think?

I’ll need to make a few more of these cards as I have some special people I need to thank!

Thanks for stopping by!

Little Lady Bugs

Hi!  Had a little bit of time to craft today and made this card using the hostess set Love You Lots.  Such a cute set!

SU! Love You Lots

I used the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack for my background layer.  I also used the new Brights Enamel Shapes next to my sentiment – these embellishments are so fun!  Just a little bling to finish the card off.  What do you think?  A quick and simple card for today – easy to mass produce if you have a need.

Did you know that when you join during the month of June you can choose an additional 2 stamp sets for your starter kit?  Hurry, tho, because the offer  ends on June 30th!

Post-It Holder Thanks

Hi!  I first saw these cute holders posted by Liz Miller.  When I checked out her blog post, she thanked Carrie for the idea and tutorial.  So – thank you both Liz and Carrie!  These are perfect for end of the year teacher gifts!  You can find Liz’s creation here, and Carrie’s video tutorial here.

SU! Thoughtful Banners, Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack

As these are gifts for teachers, I did use retired Designer Series Paper on one of them and then the family (Subtles and Brights) Designer Series Paper Stack for the other three – but you can always switch out your favorite!  I forgot to snap a picture, but there is a little pocket on the back side of the holder that will fit a gift card.

Here are a few more:

SU! Thoughtful Banners, SU! Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack

I did use the new Thoughtful Banners stamp set and coordinating punch for the sentiment.

Then check out my link on the right to view it on-line!  Want a hard copy?  Send me your address, and I’ll get one out to you.  Or – if you are local to Northboro, MA – join me for my New Catty Kick-off Party on Saturday, June 11 from 7-9pm.  Just send me a quick note to let me know you are coming.

Here’s a card I made to showcase a few new stamp sets and some of the new In Colors.  They are FUN!!

SU! Painter's Palette, SU! Love & Affection, SU! Thoughtful Banners

I combined 3 stamp sets for this card – love how well Stampin’ Up! products coordinate with each other.  The easel and background splatter on the base are images from the Painter’s Palette set.  The flowers are from Love & Affection and colored with In Color markers and the sentiment is from a MUST HAVE set called Thoughtful Banners (it also has a coordinating punch!)  The card base is the new Sweet Sugarplum.  If you look closely at the flowers, you also get a peek at Dapper Denim, Emerald Envy, and Flirty Flamingo.  The Designer Series Paper panel on the left shows Peekaboo Peach.  So a little look at all the new In Colors.

What do you think?  In love with the new products yet?  Ok – maybe it is a little early since that catalog only went live a few hours ago – but trust me – you will LOVE it!!!  Shop my on-line store to get your new In Colors and stamps!

KyliesBlogHighlight

Hi!  I am participating once again in Kylie’s Blog Highlight that you can find here.  The theme this month is “Thanks”!  If you like my card, I’d appreciate it if you would hop on over to Kylie’s blog and click on the little heart in the upper right corner of my card to give it your vote.

SU! Six Sided Sampler. Gorgeous Grunge, Bold Butterfly

I sent this card to Lyssa Zwolanek to say thanks for the new blog header, watermark, and signature you now see on my blog.  Don’t they look great!! I love how they turned out!  I used the colors I had asked her to use for my blog and, of course, it wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t add on a butterfly  The idea for the card is CASEd from the 2015-16 Annual Catalog.  I am sad to see the Six Sided Sampler set on the retiring list – as it is fun to play with and so easy to use.  If you don’t own this set yet, you have until the end of this month to purchase it before it is no longer available.  Just click on the set below to get to my store.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will pop over to Kylie’s and not only vote for my card, but check out all the other great cards made using only Stampin’ Up! product.

Bluebirds

Hi!  Welcome to Wednesday!  Today I am playing along with the Global Design Project challenge #GDP031 – Nature Theme card.

SU! Hardwood, World of Dreams, Greetings Thinlets

I went with the World of Dreams  stamp set – just love those images and they are perfect for this challenge.  Spring is slowly making an appearance – well, she made one then left for a bit when Mother Nature decided to drop snow on us again last week.  But, as I type this, I hear the birds chirping and the sun shining.  We have had a nest a few times in a tree by our porch and it is fun to watch the little ones hatch and grow.  I am hoping we get some again this year.   Anyway, I colored my image with my markers – colors are Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Island Indigo and Old Olive.  I used the Lots of Labels thinlets to cut it out.  The background is the Hardwood stamp inked in Crumb Cake and stamped on a Crumb Cake layer.   The sentiment is die cut using the Greetings thinlets.  I actually cut two and glued them together to give a little dimension to it.  A button and linen thread finish it off.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card!

Butterflies

Hi!  Thanks for stopping by today.  Today, I am playing along with the #GDP029 color challenge.  Here are the colors for today’s challenge:

GDP029 Colour

I admit, I struggled a little bit trying to come up with a stamp set to use for this challenge.   I settled on Papillon Potpourri – a favorite of mine and the little butterfly.

SU! Papillon Potpourri, Endless Thanks

I stamped my butterflies in Early Espresso then colored them with Tangelo Twist and Bermuda Bay.  A little hard to see in this picture, but they are popped up on dimensionals.  The background is the debossed side of Elegant Dots (yes, I really do like that look).  Here is a close up:

SU! Papillon Potpourri, Endless Thanks

You can see the debossing much better and get a feel for the popped up butterflies.  The sentiment is from Endless Thanks – another great set as I just love the font.

I do wish to thank everyone who placed  an order, held a workshop, or joined my Stampin’ Up! team during Sale-A-Bration!  I appreciate the support!
