Here is another fun Valentine we made at our Stamp Camp Luncheon this month using the SU Crazy Mixed Up Love set. I used the colors at the Dynamic Duos Black Tie Challenge #87 using Melon Mambo… and you can even add a dessert option of an umbrella! I was going to use the SU Rain or Shine set with the umbrella and thought some of my design team members might use it….well, it turns out I could have used it. Make sure you check out what the DT over at Dynamic Duos came up with this week…

Stampin’ Up recently gifted some retired products to their demonstrators, and I must say I am very grateful since I missed this the first time around…their Simply Scrappin’ Kits. I opened the Bandstand one and found some neat stuff! I needed to make a set of thank you cards for the Friday Mashup #144 where Lisa asked us to:
Create a project with “Stars.”
Create a set of “Thank you Cards with Matching Envelopes”.
Or Mash it Up and create a set of “Thank you Cards & Envelopes using Stars.”
I did accomplish the ‘mashing’ by adding a color coordinating embellishment to each envelope with star confetti to fall out when it is opened…
ok, maybe that was a wee bit of cheating…heeheehee.
Hello, friends! I tucked in tonight after running around like crazy in the freezing temperatures all day…brrrrrrrr. I cozied up with some new posies from the SU Occasions Catalog. I have been itching to use the new SU Hardwood stamp so I used it as a background with the sweet sentiment from SU Too Kind. Ever play around so long with a card and nothing comes together? That is what happened with this card…I just couldn’t get what was in my mind onto my card so I just finished it and moved on…I did use the colors from ColourQ # 225 this week as inspiration.
P.S. Don’t forget about the Weekly Deals…Give me a call 724-323-2296 or send an email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in ordering from me…or visit my ONLINE STORE.
Awesome job last week crafters- all your entries for Dynamic Duos made it very hard to narrow down winners- every submission was fabulous! Well, you did a bang up job with Summer Starfruit/Garden Green- what have you go up your sleeves for this week’s Dynamic Duos Challenge #86 of Pool Party/Pink Pirouette? We can’t wait to see!
I used the ever popular and oh so lovely, SU Hearts a Flutter- I know you all must be beyond surprised! Oh, and another surprise…I added in some SU Banner Blast banners from Sale-a-Bration coming up soon !
This was a difficult card to photograph with its light colors. I could not seem to get the Pool Party horizontal banner to be focused…please forgive my photography skills, friends!

This card is for all of my stamping gals who came out last week for our 1st Annual Stamp Camp Tea Luncheon…I LAVA YOU! I am just so blessed to know each and every one of you. I wish all my blogging friends could have shared in the day as well- I guess in a way you are since this is one of the cards we stamped together at the luncheon;) I thought this was a fun card to spotlight for Heidi’s Friday Mashup #143 challenge this week:
Create a project using the Colors “Coastal Cabana, Real Red & Crumb Cake.”
Create a project using “Hearts & Arrows. “
Or Mash it Up and create a project using “the above colors along with Hearts & Arrows.”
Ok, I am considering the DSP design to be arrows- yeah, that’s my story and I am sticking with it!
