Here is another card from a favorite set in the NEW Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog, Dino Days.
Isn’t she just so cute with her pearls?

Of course, this card easily becomes a boy card with a switch of
the Designer Series Paper and the color of the dino!

Stampin’ Up Hand Lettered Prose Dies in a Frame

July 5, 2019

 

It may seem simple but…it did take a little time!

Ever since the catalog came out, I have been itching to make a frame using
the Stampin’ Up Hand Lettered Prose Dies.

I finally did it!!

My suggestion is to cut all your Rococo Rose letters, then your Pear Pizzazz letters, then your Pool Party letters, and then your So Saffron letters. The opening on this frame from Ikea is 5″ x 7″ just like in the catalog sample. I drew a pencil outline on my black cardstock of the opening. I arranged the letters so they fit and glued down the Z first. Then I lifted each letter one at a time and adhered it to the black cardstock. In the small spaces scattered throughout, I used the stitched felt embellishments from the Follow Your Art embellishment Kit.

My first time using the Stampin’ Up Hand Lettered Prose Dies- I love them!
The stamp set they are bundled with is super cute- it is called Praiseworthy Prose.

But the dies are a great value for stand alone alphabet dies with the addition of symbols, too.

Thanks for buzzing 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!

Stampin’ Up Band Together in Pink and Green

June 28, 2019

Happy Friday to you, friends! I have a pretty pink and green card for you today using
the Stampin’ Up Band Together Bundle.

If you have perused through the catalog as many times as I imagine you have…
you would have seen the card designs on p. 121 where I got my inspiration.


I love all three cards they presented as samples!

I used Flirty Flamingo and Mint Macaron on this card instead of the Soft Seafoam I was going to use. While I was traveling on the train to Pittsburgh last month, I had worked on some cards so I took my Soft Seafoam and Highland Heather ink pads with me. Somehow, I managed to forget them so no creations since then using those colors- can’t wait to get back and see where I left them!!! Though, in the end, I am thinking that the darker Mint plays better with the Flirty Flamingo than the softer color of Seafoam would have so… it worked out:)

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

Don’t forget Stampin’ Up added some new things to the Clearance Rack.
