Epic Retirement

Today we will take a break from the bright, bold flowers of the Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper and instead take a look at the awesome background stamp Crackle Paint in the upcoming Occasions catalog. Isn’t it a great backdrop for this card?  A coworker/friend commissioned a male retirement card and told me the retiree liked guitars. I decided to pull out retired stamp sets for the retirement card. See what I did there? Ha Ha Ha! I am too funny! I also decided to use some retired cardstock, ink, and candy dots, too. Don’t let your retired products get dusty, folks! There’s still life left in them! I just love how this card is truly a mix of old, current and upcoming products.

Eclectic Threading for SUOC197

I had just been looking through some previous posts and came across this one that I did threading on. I just love the effect. I wanted to feature threading on another card and decided the Stampin’ Up Only Challenge #197 Favorite Florals (SUOC197) would be the perfect opportunity. Their challenge is to use a floral set in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. You can visit their page and play along, too!  The card just started flowing along and before I knew it, there wasn’t any actual stamping on it! A sentiment banner saves the day!

Oh Happy Day! Club Thank You Cards

My club members’ orders were delivered yesterday by that beautiful man in brown…and I happily settled in to my crafting area to make their Thank You cards. I don’t know how it is for you, but stamping relaxes me so much and simply makes me happy 🙂  I decided to make 3” x 3” cards so I could use the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack and make matching envelopes. I added gold metallic thread and sequin trim for sparkle…and they turned out super cute!  The only problem I had was deciding which sentiment to use in Thoughtful Banners – there are so many! And I just love the fact that the stamp set is photopolymer. I was able to bend the words into a curved shape so it would nicely fit the banners.  Another bonus to the clear photopolymer is that I had punched out 3 of the banners and then decided I wanted to stamp the outline on them. No sweat! Since I can see right through the stamps, there was no problem lining them up!  Love that we can buy the stamp set and punch together as a bundle and save 10%, too!
