Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Bundle

July 13, 2020

The Stampin’ Up! Pampered Pets Bundle is just too cute, for sure….just melts my heart!

Cats and dogs got equal footing in this set!

Although I stamped my own background, the Playful Pets Designer Series Paper is just out of this world adorable! I just could not bear to cut into it, yet! The expressions on the dogs and cats is priceless- and that dog with his paw up cracks me up! I love the small patterns sheets of DSP along with the big images of the playful pets:)

The Playful Pets Suite has cute little silver Stampin’ Up! Playful Pets Trinkets with hearts and bones! And the Playful Alphabets is just essential for me lately- used it on about 5 cards last week. The 3/4″ letters are the perfect size to fit various words and symbols on cards!

A simple inside greeting…

Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Bundle with Lasting Elegance Dies

February 21, 2020

I love gray and white together! I used the Lasting Elegance Dies along with the So Sentimental Bundle to create this simple elegant card. My intention was to make a wedding card for my stash but ended up with a friendship card:) I love that the Lasting Elegance Dies has that versatility.

I used a corner die on the inside which adds such a lovely touch.

The Last a Lifetime Stamp Set that is bundled with the Lasting Elegance Dies is just beautiful. Take a look:

But as you can see, the dies work well with any stamp set like I used on this card:)

Stampin’ Up! Under my Umbrella with Pleased as Punch DSP Sale-a-bration Coordination coming on Feb. 4th!

February 3, 2020

Oh my, the Stampin’ Up! Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper available tomorrow- February 4th -with Sale-a-bration Coordination is so cool!

I used the umbrella patterned paper on this card with the Under my Umbrella Bundle. There are 12 pieces of 12″ x 12″ paper in the Pleased as Punch DSP- 3 coordinate with the Umbrella Builder Punch, 3 with the Heart Punch Pack, 3 with the Tulip Builder Punch, and 3 with the Sale-a-bration offering Small Bloom Punch. And, of course, each piece has a great pattern on the back, too!

The Under My Umbrella Bundle includes the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set and the Umbrella Builder Punch. Line art images are fun to color and easy to customize for any occasion. The greetings in the stamp set work perfectly for thinking of you, sending love, wedding, or baby projects. Stamp the raindrop or flower images repeatedly to create backgrounds. You can also use them to decorate the umbrellas or the rain galoshes.

I paper-pieced my galoshes on the inside of the card with a pattern on the back of the Small Blooms pattern in the Pleased as Punch DSP. Just stamp the image of the galoshes on the Whisper White card base and then stamp the image on a scrap of the DSP. Fussy cut the galoshes along the stamped lines on the image and pop it on the image you stamped on the card base. I love how it is so easy because if you “cut outside or inside” the lines, it all works out when it is placed on the stamped image:)
