Stampin’ Up Very Versailles with Fanciful Fragrance

July 19, 2019

I paired the Stampin’ Up Very Versailles stamp set with the Fanciful Fragrance stamp set.
The two stamp sets complement each other nicely.

I used a strip of Woven Threads DSP and some Woven Threads Sequins with some tiny pearls.

Darn, I forgot to use the neat sentiment in the Fanciful Fragrance stamp set  (below) that says “From, Me”.
I will add it to the lower right corner before I send it:)

I made a festive Accordion Fun Fold using the Stampin’ Up For The Win stamp set.

How did I  do it? Well, here is a video…

Stampin’ Up Silhouette Scenes Bundle

July 15, 2019

It doesn’t get any easier than this little cutie!
When I saw the Stampin’ Up Silhouette Scenes Bundle in April, my first thought was a sun behind the trees with the girl swinging…
and yes, it took me a while to do it and post it!

I simply die cut out a circle from a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock and inlaid the same sized So Saffron circle. I die cut the tree branch and placed it (not adhered it) on my blue cardstock. I then put it in my Stamparatus for placement of the girl swinging from the tree branch.  I removed the tree branch and stamped the girl about 3 or 4 times for a deep black silhouette to match the cardstock tree branch. Just one of the many reasons I love my Stamparatus! I knew she would be hanging from the tree perfectly since I used my stamparatus so all I had to do was adhere the black tree branch! A simple sentiment finished it off:)

Stampin’ Up Very Versailles

July 12, 2019

I totally fell in love with this stamp set when I first saw it…Stampin’ Up Very Versailles.

I just started layering the images and voila, it was done. I stamped the small script first in Soft Seafoam then stamped the leaves in Mint Macaron. Then it needed a bold pop of color so I used Soft Suede to stamp the top and bottom scrolls and the medallion. I tried Crumb Cake first but it was just ok, the darker Soft Suede ink and card base ended up being just right! A simple little Stitched Nested Label Die popped up with some twine and gold metallic pearls finished up the card. I stamped some Mint leaves inside on the inside with a Soft Seafoam “Thinking of You.”

Looking at the photo…I think my next card will have some distressed edges on it!

Thanks for stopping by, friends…

Stampin’ Up Band Together in Gold

July 1, 2019

Happy Monday, friends! Hope you all had a great weekend.
I had two fun stamping excursions- a stamping trade show on Saturday and a Stampin’ Up Social event on Sunday that included a piece of Key Lime pie:)
You have heard about Golfing Widows…well, Jim was a stamping widower this weekend!
I wanted to share this beauty that got my daughter’s stamp of approval on Friday while she studied in my craft room.  I love crafting with her company.

I intended to white wash the gold embossed flowers on the crumb cake panel like the catalog sample but changed my mind and left it just embossed.

Of course, you know Cindy cut the gold label out of the gold panel on the black card base and cut the white label band out of the white panel behind the crumb cake panel. I used my retired Hexagon Punch to put pennant ends on the white label band. It added a nice touch.

Such a great bundle…I have loved using it!
