Stampin’ Up By The Bay Sale-a-Bration Gift

January 21, 2018

Good Monday Mornin’, friends! I have a sweet notecard for you today.

I made this card using a FREE stamp set you can get as a gift during Sale-a Bration!

You can see ALL the fun offerings for Sale-a-Bration HERE.

Of course, you know by now that I am loving my Rectangle Stitched Framelits.
And, I think the majority of the cards I make has a Stitched Shapes Frame in one way or another.
The stitches give a wonderful finished, professional look, don’t you agree?

The serene scene in this stamp set lends itself to a thinking of you/sympathy/get well card.
I used the Well Said Bundle for my sentiments. I will be using that one a lot on my cards!

Take a look at the Well Said Bundle:

In case your brain is like mine and finds it hard to read the die cut words …they are:

happy, you, birthday, thanks,baby, sympathy, hooray, love, wishes, miss, friend, bride, groom, and welcome
with a bird, a butterfly, posies, and leaves thrown in for good measure!

Thanks for  buzzing by, friends…

Stampin’ Up Let It Ride Stepped Up

January 18, 2019

WAIT…you have not seen this one…

I am sure you all have made a card and then came up with a way to step it up days or maybe even weeks later? Well, this time it was a week later.
I used Early Espresso as my card base instead of white. I think it worked with the horse color.
I inlaid the Rectangle Stitched  frame with the horse image inside a rectangle I die cut out of the green/blue panel.
This was my first one.

I also wanted to add something to the inside of the card so I repeated the outside on the inside.

My original inside:

 I then inlaid the image inside another green/blue panel like the outside.

I am happy with both but really love the second one with the darker base and matching inside:)

See this post for the materials.

Stampin’ Up Wonderful Romance with Rose Trellis

January 14, 2019

I combined two beautiful new bundles from the Occasions Catalog to make this elegant card. Of course, I was so excited to use the floral image from the Wonderful Romance bundle but also wanted to use the trellis, leaves, and the label from the Rose Trellis dies.. so I did!  The layering ovals fit nicely inside the gold foil label die cut, too! Now, I want to use all the other neat images and dies in both sets…make sure to check them BOTH out:)

Stampin’ Up Let It Ride

January 11, 2018

Stamp, color, die cut…done!

I was so pleased how this turned out.
After working with Balmy Blue over the past few weeks, I am so in love with it.
To be honest, I went through a slight mourning period when Soft Sky and Marina Mist left.
But, I must say, Balmy Blue has filled the void! It is so peaceful, it should be called Calmy Blue…

Remember that Stampin’ Blends bleed because they are alcohol based markers.
So, I stamped and colored on a separate piece of Whisper White Cardstock and die cut it with the Rectangle Stitched Thinlits.
I think I may add a Balmy blue Border around the inside on my next card, don’t you think that would be just perfect?

Thanks for stopping by…
