Clean & Simple Razzleberry - Awash with Flowers

stampin up, awash with flowers, scallop trim punch, sympathy cardHere is another card using the Awash with Flowers stamp set - a sneak peek set from the new Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog debuting in July. I also used the Scallop Trim Border Punch, which is one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration items you can choose with your qualifying SAB Order.

I made several of these Thinking of You cards and I do love Rich Razzleberry! After making several, I added some Crushed Curry small flowers which I loved- that extra pop of color really finished off the card. Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture of that card before I sent it off this weekend.

Color Challenge - Bella's Blossoms

stampin up, sale-a-bration, big shot, tiny tags, jewelry punch, bellas blossoms, whimsical wordsThis is a card I made for the Stampin Addict Color and Sketch Challenges. I used some Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog products and the beautiful Sale-A-Bration exclusive Whimsical Words, as well as another Sale-A-Bration option Bella's Blossom.

I can't stop using the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impression Folder from the Occasions Mini Catalog! I used it here on the Pretty in Pink layer. I stamped the sentiment, from the SAB exclusive stamp set Whimsical Words, in Chocolate Chip ink onto the Whisper White strip. Then I stamped flowers and blooms from Bella's Blooms stamp set in Pretty in Pink and So Saffron inks. This stamp set is just one of the many optional sets you can earn for FREE this month. The swirls peeking out from behind the Chocolate Chip mats are from the Bigz Tulipe Die for the Big Shot. Then I wrapped a knot of the Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon with a tag from Tiny Tags and the Jewelry Tag Punch. All of these are from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

Sale-A-Bration - Out of the Box

stampin up, out of the box stamp set, baby cardHow about this sweet card for a new baby? I used the Stampin' Up! Level I Hostess Set Out of the Box. I also used the PERFECT Textured Impressions Folder - I mean Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder! from the Ocasions Mini Catalog. I just love that folder - it is always just the right touch! And the small wonder sentiment is an exclusive Sale-A-Braiton set called Whimsical Words.

I stamped the elephant 4 times in different inks and then added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the flowers on his ears, punched him with my 1 1/4" Circle Punch and mounted him onto Gable Green 1 3/8" Circle Mats. I stamped the 'small wonder' sentiment onto the front of my Whisper White panel and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots textured impressions folder. A Ticket Corner Punch to finish off the corners and a quick and sweet card is done!

Black & White Thank You

stampin up, vintage vogue, kind & caring thoughts, thank you cardThis card is a CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) from a beautiful black and white non-Stampin' Up! card I saw. I use some Stampin' Up! retired paper and the new Vintage Vogue set from the current Occasions Mini Catalog, and a sentiment from Kind & Caring Thoughts, a Hostess Level II stamp set. That gorgeous ribbon is the Basic Black Satin Ribbon, also in the Occasions Mini Catalog. I added three half-back pearls, adhered with Mini Glue Dots, from the Pretties Kit to finish it off.

Color Challenge - Go Green

stampin up, go green, st patrick's day cardHere is a card I made for the Stampin' Addicts Color Challenge 45 this week - Glorious Green, Green Galore, Bermuda Bay, Metallic Gold - what a toughie! Of course, with these colors I had to use my Stampin' Up! Go Green stamp! I love these a la carte sets - individual stamps for under $10 each- and Go Green is a fun one from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

I punched out 4 Full Hearts from Glorious Green cardstock, then I ran them through the Big Shot with the Finial Press Textured Impressions Folder to add some detail. I sponged the edges with a Sponge Dauber and Glorious Green ink. I also used one of the stamps from Kind & Caring Thoughts to background stamp - I thought it looked clover-ish.

The lucky sentiment is from Define Your Life - this is a stamp set that I use so often!

SHOOT - Scrapbook Page

stampin up, big shot, scrapbook, sweet peaHere is a scrapbook page I made last night using some of the pattern paper from the Sweet Pea Paper Stack in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog. I cut one of the large print patterns in half at 6" and then trimmed 1/2" off the bottom so that it would mat onto my Taken with Teal cardstock page. A narrow strip of Dusty Durango cardstock covers that seam. I cut the title SHOOT letters out of another pattern from the Sweet Pea Paper Stack with the Serif Essentials die for the Big Shot. I outlined them with my Signo White Gel Pen, too.

Challenges - Happy Moments

stampin up, 2 step bird punch, stampin addicts, color challengeAt the Stampin' Addicts website, there are daily Stampin' Challenges where I like to get Stampin' Inspiration and ideas. These two cards are from the SA Color Challenge 44 last week - Dusty Durango, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Taken with Teal. I used my new Stampin' Up! 2 Step Bird Punch from the Occasions Mini Catalog for one card and the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration exclusive Happy Moments stamp set for the other.

The 2 Step Bird Punch punches out three pieces - the leafy branch, the bird body and the bird wing. I used some of the Sweet Pea Paper Stack for the background of this card. Then I punched my bird from Taken with Teal cardstock and sponged the edges of all the pieces. The wing is popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals. The branch is punched from Old Olive cardstock. I added a little sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes to the bottom of the main panel. I love that stamp set - it has a sentiment for nearly any occasion!

Nouveau Chic - Thank You

stampin up, nouveau chic, cardI stamped up this card last week, using up some of my pieces of the Nouveau Chic Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! I love the cool tones of this paper and had a lot of fun adding accessories to these squares.

I punched 1 1/4" Squares from different patterns of the Nouveau Chic DSP and also Scallop Punched a piece of the darker pattern paper from this pack. The Scallop piece is layered behind the top left square. I cut a thin strip of Very Vanilla cardstock and knotted it through a button for the top right square. I also stamped the sentiment 'for you' in Basic Gray ink over this piece of DSP. I tied a knot in a scrap of Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon and wrapped that around the lower left square. Finally, I stamped the silhouette flower image from Kind Thoughts, a Hostess Level III stamp set, in More Mustard ink onto a piece of More Mustard cardstock. This piece is layered under a Very Vanilla Hodge Podge Hardware frame and secured with Very Vanilla Brads from the same kit.
