How fun are lemons when it starts to feel like summer?? We made this card for my Stamp a Stack of cards a few weeks ago. This card is simple to make with the Lemon Zest stamp set and coordinating Lemon Punch! The lemons have the thick black and white striped paper from the Petal Passion DSP (that is retiring! -sniffle!) that anchors the main images. Then the petals and lemons were stamped with Old Olive and Daffodil Delight. To create depth, we used dimensionals.
Next, we wrapped Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the Whisper White piece of paper. To finish the card, we added Basic Rhinestones and a bright Lemon Lime Twist card base!
Such a fun card for a birthday-and uni-sex too!

The Picture Perfect Party Suite has been one of my favorites from the Occasions Catalog! There is still a month left that you can purchase the wonderful products from this suite and the whole catalog!
I made this card for another SWAP for Stampin’ Up’s OnStage earlier this month. I love how the colors pop and celebrate your recipient’s big day! For the candles, I stamped off the solid image and used full strength ink for the patterns. Next, I used the new Stamparatus to line up the Happy Birthday going down the side! Then I ran the Berry Burst strip of paper through the Big Shot with the Sequins Dynamic Embossing Folder. This was followed by the Myth & Magic glimmer paper, the Picture Perfect Party DSP pack, and some Silver Baker’s Twine!

I have always admired people who make quilts! I have even thought of trying to make one. But, I need another hobby like a hole in my head! Giggle!! So, I decided to use the Tailored Tag Punch to make my panels and then I glued the pieces down in a semi-random pattern. I trimmed off the excess and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder.
To add extra detail to the sentiment, I used my Rich Razzleberry Marker to make faux stitches. A little ribbon and it was done (with no Wink of Stella!!) Shocker! This is the technique card for stamp club this month.
Be sure to get your retiring colors before they are gone! And I added links to the retired list for both the Occasions Catalog and the Annual Catalog 2017-2018! You can have it shipped to you even if you are not local to me!

Fruit Basket is one of those stamp sets that I passed by in the Occasions Catalog and then I started seeing a ton of super cute cards made with it! And then, one of my customers ordered the Tutti-Fruiti DSP pack! I HAD to get the whole suite after that! The suite includes the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack, Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon, Adhesive Backed Sequins, DSP, and Washi tape! There is a set of Tutti-Fruiti Stampin’ Spots too!
The Sale a Bration Basket Weave Dynamic Embossing folder is carrying over to the NEW catalog!!! So, I whipped this card up! I started by stamping some berries and then embossing with Silver Embossing powder over them to make the basket! Then, I stamped & punched out some berried to layer on top. I added some DSP and a Lemon Lime Twist banner for the sentiment! All done! I love how it turned out!
You may have heard the news, but in case you haven’t: the NEW catalog will have NEW colors!
I will post some teasers of new colors when my pre order arrives!!! I can’t wait! But I highly encourage you to stock up on re-inkers, markers, paper, and stamp pads now!

I love how easy it is to make an elegant and graceful card with the Beautiful Peacock! This is one of the FREE choices from the Sale-a-bration catalog with a $50 purchase! It is a photopolymer set which makes it easy for lining up Eastern Palace DSP. I used Versa Mark and Gold embossing powder for the swirly part of the feathers.
Then, I used coordinating Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide to complete the small flower details around the feathers. Finally, I topped it off with the 1/8″ Fresh Fig ribbon!

I love it when I am working on one project, then cut out a piece from the Big Shot, and then a new idea hits me! I saw the negative of the Petal Branch from the Petals & More Thinlit dies and immediately saw this card!
It was such a simple card to put together too! I just popped a piece of Copper Foil in the background and matted it with Early Espresso. A little Linen Thread and a sentiment, finished! And it’s masculine! Those are usually my hardest to design!
The pictures do not do the copper justice at all! It really pops in person!
My son has grown up around me making crafts with Stampin Up! products. He wanted to make his friend a birthday card, so off to my room we go. He usually goes through my pieces that don’t make it onto a project and scrap paper. But I am so proud of what he made!!
He tells me he wants to be a Stampin’ Up! demo when he gets older! Ha! I will see what he says when he’s 18! Until then, I will eat up these moments!
