I'm back and it's not scary, it's halloween

Long time no post, I know.... but I am back.  I took a little time off from stamping this summer but I am back in the groove again.

This a halloween swap I created using kidoodles stamp set from Stampin Up.  Tough to tell from photo but I embossed mask in black embossing powder and cut out and popped up on dimensional.  I did not have any current halloween dsp, so I created my own with card stock and new embossing folder, called Chevron.

Baby shower card

I made this card for a baby shower inspired by new ribbon in the occasion mini pleated satin ribbon- so fun.  The stamp set is baby bundle from Stampin Up.  I haven't used stamps to make a background in forever and I use to do it all the time when I first started stamping.  A tip is to stamp in groups of three making triangles so it looks random.

Happy Spring- Punch art sunflowers

Happy Spring! This is a card I made for a swap.  I love sunflowers and these are super easy to make.

1) use scallop punch for daffodil delight cs, then use scissors to cut scallop lines
2) punch 1 -1/4 circle in chocolate chip and use white gel pen to make polka dot centers
3) I chose to use old olive grosgrain ribbon to make stems and leaves.

Still time to sale-a-brate, Vintage style

Sale-a-bration goes through the end of March, so still time to get some FREE sets with every $50 purchase.
This is one of my favorite SAB 2012 sets called Fresh Vintage.  Plus you got to love Stampin Up's wonderful coordination of colors and designer papers. I used sale-a-bration everyday enchantment designer series paper and also SAB everyday enchantment ribbon pack too!

I couldn't decide on a sentiment, so decided to leave it as a blank card.

Valentine's birthday

My brother's birthday is on Valentine's day, so had to do something different than red and hearts.  He loves to snowboard so I used a retired stamp called snowboarder and lovely as a tree.  I cased Brenda Westcom's card from stampin connection and changed out DSP to well worn.

It's the most wonderful time of the year, getting FREE stuff from Stampin up with every $50 you spend.
I used an exclusive SAB set called  outline occasions.  And of course you know I love using designer paper to get my color palette from.  So, I used SAB designer series paper  Every day enchanted elegance.  I came up with simple easy card adding a little bit of pool party bakers twine.

quick but elegant sympathy card

Unfortunately I needed sympathy card for a friend who's father passed away.  Inspired by Mocha morning speciality paper- which is raised velvet... it was a great base to keep it to a simple card.  I used the designer frames embossing folder and just cut out the raised oval frame and stamped sentiment and used my extra large oval punch and done.
