Live in the Sunshine

SUPER SIMPLE card but it showcases a little bit of everything...some DSP, Basic Rhinestones, the Framelit dies, punches and stamps of course.  I was inspired by a card on Pinterest from another stamp company and just changed them all over to Stampin' UP! products. I stamped the stem in Lucky Limeade.  I used the Stamp Sets Pursuit of Happiness (sentiment) and Raining Flowers (stem).  I punched out a 1 1/4 circle of International Bazaar DSP and then a 1" Early Expresso circle.  I cut a Daffodil Delight Apothecary Framelit and stamped the image in Basic Black.  And I just can't NOT use the Itty Bitty Punch pack on a card anymore it seems....anyway, I then added a couple of Rhinestones to them.

Blooming With Kindness

My next couple of posts are going to be August Card class cards because I have been working on 63 cards for my Hilton Head Trip and I am so excited to say they are all FINISHED!  Anyway, this is the first card I wanted to show because I love this stamp set and the First Edition DSP.  I paired it with my favorite red, Cherry Cobbler and the So Saffron ribbon (that is my first and most favorite color combo with some added brown) and Very Vanilla cardstock. I then sponged the outer edges of the DSP with Soft Suede ink and the sentiment is punched out with the XL Oval Punch.  You can't tell in the photo but I spritzed it with Champagne Shimmer Mist spray. Tommorrow I will show you another Pinterest inspired card. Have a great Friday!

Owl Punch Bat-Spooky~

Well, how's this for thinking outside the box? I wanted to make a bat out of the Owl Punch, but once I got him upside down, was trying to figure out the wings situation and not succeeding at that half circle punch out, and then another circle size, I decided, WHAT ABOUT THE ELEGANT BUTTERFLY punch? DING,DING! So, there folks is how the bat wings "evolved"...I used Night of Navy, So Saffron, Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black and Very Vanilla cardstocks. I stamped the Spooky from the Stamp Set Wicked Cool and punched half of it with the Fancy Label Punch. I used some Old Olive striped paper from the Pattern Pack DSP and tied some Polka Dot Black Ribbon on the front. (The Limb is from the stamp set Take Care). Hope you enjoyed today's share.
