Stamp-a-Stack In Color Butterfly Basics Butterflies Thinlits

 I resisted this set for so long! I didn't think I'd use it and I figured the Thinlits would be too putzy. I'm glad I caved and ordered them both! There's a good variety of stamps in the set- it was fun layering them for this card! And the Butterfly popped right out of the die when I used wax paper with it. I just had to pop a few little pieces out which wasn't hard at all. I will miss these In Colors! They worked so well together!

Stamp-A-Stack Just Kidding Work Of Art

I love this stamp set! But I didn't want to make everyone color it in, so I decided to use the background stamps from Work Of Art to color the background for the main image. Just make sure you stamp off so the ink isn't too dark.

Guy Greetings Hats For Grandpa

A slightly different version of the Hats card:


Colors: Early Espresso and Very Vanilla

My scalloped chipboard frames are all used now! Woohoo!

Guy Greetings Car For Dad

The car didn't fit in the frame, so I put it below and stamped DAD in the frame. Changes the look a little bit!

Guy Greetings Tools

At the February Stamp-A-Stack, we made this card using Guy Greetings. I decided to make a few more that are similar to show more of the stamps in the set. The frame is a piece of chipboard that I colored with Blendabilities before Stampin' Up! announced they were going to be discontinued.

Paper Pumpkin March 2015 Sew You - Part 2

Yesterday I shared the first 4 cards I made using the March Paper Pumpkin kit Sew You. Today I'll be sharing the other 5 cards I made. The kit came with everything to make 9 cards. Rather than sewing (so not my thing!) I used Stampin' Write Markers to color the "YOU" on these cards:

Daffodil Delight:


The inside:


Pool Party:


The inside:


Real Red:


The inside:


One of my nieces is graduating from college today, so this is the card I made for her. The school colors are green and white. I used Garden Green and White Baker's Twine:


Another niece will be graduating from high school in a couple of weeks, so I made her this card. The school colors are orange and black. I used Pumpkin Pie but the Baker's Twine is Tangerine Tango:


For the last 2 cards, I also used Crazy About You (in the Occasion Catalog) and Pure Gumption (retired). The letters are colored and then I used Baker's Twine.

Paper Pumpkin March 2015 Sew You - Part 1

I started working with the March Paper Pumpkin Kit "Sew You" right after I got it. I'm not into sewing (other than fixing ripped dog toys and sewing on an occasional button) so I had a hard time with this one. But after seeing some other ideas for the kit at the Creative Connection and the Stamp Share For Leaders event, I decided it was time to work on it again! Today I'll share 4 cards I made with actual sewing on them and tomorrow I'll share the rest.


Here is my sample, following the directions:


For this one, I did the stitches going straight across the letters using retired (so it didn't matter if I goofed up!) Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine:


Here's a close up of  the Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Sticker I used over a star I punched from Pear Pizzazz (a close enough match to the twine) card stock:


On this card, I did the stitches as "X's":


For this card, I sponged the bubble with Bermuda Bay Ink and used Bermuda Bay Baker's Twine


Check back tomorrow to see more of these cards!
