Loss of a Furry Friend

Seems like I’ve had to make too many pet sympathy cards lately 😦 I created this one using the retiring Playful Pet DSP. Sweet Tea was a princess & deserved a Flirty Flamingo colour themed card. The black DSP is from the tiring True Love DSP. I added a little texture to the banner using the Tasteful Textile EF. That cute little resin heart is on the retiring list & is currently on sale.

Simple Thank You

I created this simple thank you card using the soon to be retired Dandy Garden DSP & retired Silver Foil paper. The dragonfly was punched out using the Dragonfly Punch & coordinating Dandy Garden DSP. It was adhered to a circle die cut from the retired Stitched Shapes circle. I added a ladybug trinket currently on sale & retiring soon! The sentiment was inked in Misty Moonlight.

A Cheery Hello

I cased this card from Pinterest using the retired Memories & More set. It coordinates with the Dragonfly Garden & Garden Wishes stamp sets. I punched out the dragonflies using the Dragonfly punch. I heat embossed the “hello” in white on Mossy Meadow cardstock. I tied a simple bow using retired Mossy Meadow trim.

Hello, Friend

I saw this one on Pinterest & fell in love with it! The colours are the new 2021-2023 In Colours (Polished Pink, Pale Papaya, Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent & Fresh Freesia). The center flower is from the Meadow dies #155852 I glued to the negative circle cutout. The sentiment is from the amazing Biggest Wish stamp set #155052 on page 63 of the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue.

Class of 2021

OK, this is not a Stampin’ Up! card. However, I could not resist making this one! I did use the Tasteful Texture 3D EF on the black cardstock. I added a little bling using the Genial Gems in the corners.

Stitched Nature

I saw this on Pinterest & knew I had to case it. I loved the colours & simplicity of this card.

I used the retired Stitched Shapes to die cut the circles for the lake & sun. I used the Stitched Triangles to create the trees. The strip in the middle is Grey Granite cardstock. I thought about stamping “happy birthday” on middle strip but decided to keep the front clean & stamped the sentiment on the inside.

Game On

I cased this card for a playful Father’s Day card. I used the retired Game On stamp set using Black Memento ink with the sentiment inked in Real Red. The plaid paper is from the retired Perfectly Plaid DSP. I embossed the black background using the Tasteful Textile 3D EF. I loved the classic look to this card.

Party Puffins

Our niece just celebrated her birthday. I found this card on Pinterest & knew I had to case it for her. The black & white paper is from the retiring True Love DSP. The Party Puffin #155054 was stamped using Memento Black ink then coloured in with Stampin’ Blends. I added Wink of Stella to the candle flames & the dots on the party hat. The Happy Birthday sentiment was heat embossed using white embossing powder on Pool party cardstock then die cut using the Stitched Rectangle dies. I used a retired silver thread for a subtle flare behind the sentiment. The Basic White stamped image was die cut from the Stitched So Sweetly die set.

New Home

I needed to create a New Home/Congrats card for a coworker who just bought her new home. I cased this one from Pinterest. The cute home was die cut from the retired Trimming the Town DSP using the Coming Home dies. I used the coordinating Trimming the Town DSP for the playful polka dot accent. The background was embossed using the Brick & Mortar 3D EF.

Magnolia Sympathy

Sympathy cards are always the hardest cards to make. We lost a very sweet aunt in May. I wanted to create a card to celebrate her gentle soul. I used the Love You Always Foil Sheets #154286 which are set to retire on June 30th, currently on sale for $5.00! I embossed the foil sheets with Magnolia 3D EF #149579. The sentiment is from the new Inspired Thoughts stamp set #155536 die cut using the Stitched So Sweetly die set #151690. The accent flower is a sticker from a retired Memories & More set that coordinated with the Magnolia set.
