Cheerful Giggle Greetings

I made this cheerful get well card for a friend who needs some cheering up! 
I used bright colors and the Gorgeous Grunge stamps set to accompany the Giggle Greetings stamped images.
Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White are about a cheery as I  can get!  The little chevron-style arrow came from the Circle Card Thinlits set.
The greeting on the Window Frames (framelits) Collection was purposely stamped on an angle to give the card some interest.  The Festive Paper Piercing pack around the Cherry Cobbler window frame provides detail. The Decorative Dots TIEF  adds needed texture to the background.

I always welcome your comments!

Bloom With Hope

This pretty card was made with a new Hostess Set, Bloom With Hope. Inspiration came from the catalog photo on  page 240.
The flowers were stamped with Momento ink and colored with a Razzleberry ink refill and an Aqua Painter.
Two oval framelits formed the frame, and the background paper is the lovely Fancy Foil Designer Vellum in gold.
The Happy Birthday greeting is embossed with gold E.P. and curved to make a flared banner.  It was attached with glue dots.

Bloom with Hope beauty

The idea for this card came from the one page 55 of the new catalog.  I decided to use the lovely flower from Bloom With Hope hostess set for the main image, and changed  the card from a square to a regular A-2 size. 
The white speckles were made with the Gorgeous Grunge set, and the greeting is from the Apothecary Art stamp set.
The small banner punch was used for the ends on the white strip.

I love using card ideas from our Stampin' Up! Catalog.

Petite Petals Plus More

While  browsing through the new catalog I found a card on page 125 that I liked. When I started to make my card, I decided to step it up a bit. 
Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig and a stamp from Summer Silhouettes I created the background for the small area on the front.  The Chalk Talk Framelits, Petite Petals stamp set and punch, and Bitty Banners stamp set and Framelits completed the front.  The  beautiful swirl is from Everything Eleanor.

The inside of the card was stamped with the same swirl.  I like to decorate the inside, stamping lightly so it can be written over if necessary.

List of Supplies:

Stamp sets: Petite Petals, Itty Bitty Banners,  Everything Eleanor, Summer Silhouettes
Card Stock: Crisp Cantaloupe, Garden Green, Calypso Coral, Whisper White
Ink: Crisp Cantaloupe, Garden Green, VersaMark,
Accessories: Gold EP, Bitty Banners Framelits, Big Shot, Heat Tool, Stamp-a-Ma-Jig, Basic Rhinestones, Stampin' Dimensionals

This is my first attempt with the Blended Bloom stamp set.  I stamped and embossed the flower on Vellum card stock, then colored it on the back with markers.
I cut it out and attached it to the fancy foil designer vellum card stock.
The other panels are embossed Decorative Dots with the TIEF folder, and two strips of the Watercolor Wonder metallic gold Washi tape.The remaining card stock is Hello Honey , Whisper White, and Basic Black.

Traveler for a Friend

I have a friend who will be going on a mission trip to another country.  I thought this traveler card would be appreciated.
The card stock is Sahara Sand, Crisp Cantaloupe, Whisper White and Basic Black.
The dsp is the recent Sale-a-Bration paper....I really loved using it!
I used a computer generated sentiment since I didn't have anything suitable in my stamp supplies.

The new Sunburst Framelits were used to make the circles. I found a cute card layout by Mary Brown and adapted it to my card.

I'm looking forward to using this stamp set again soon.
Thanks for stopping by!

Congrats to the Graduate

This is a case of a grad card that was posted by Mary Rindal on Stampin' Connection. I made a few small changes using stamps and supplies I had on hand.

The Mortar board grad cap is from the current  set Pure Gumption.(#132067 w or 126317 c). 

I'm so glad I have the Typeset Alphabet Bigz dies. They are perfect for 2014 numerals on this card. This set will be retiring in just a few days, but you an get it on sale right now! (Item # 12553).

The  Fancy Fan embossing folder was used to make the gold strip under the 2014.  The Congrats, Graduate sentiment is a retired stamp I go to for grad cards whenever I need one.

Gold and Black school colors were popular this year for 3 graduates I was sending cards. The  gold foil sheets will continue to be available in the new catalog, #132622.
