Butterfly Card

This is an idea I lifted from Cindee Wilkinson's Blog I changed up the colors a bit, weird how that Dusty Durango & Melon Mambo can go together! I love the new Butterfly Punch too, sure adds easy deminsion to the Flight of the Butterfly Stamp Set. Hope you like it! Keep stampin', and have fun.....

Check this out~

My awesome Brother-in-law built me a ribbon rack and a punch rack. How cool are these? I feel so spoiled and love it! Thanks Mike, you're terrific.

Don't look at my mess ... just check out the terrific racks! Mike is amazing, I just tell Judy what I want, and viola ... he builds it for me. It's so much fun to have a twin and especially one that has such a giving hubby. He spoils us both, kinda like my hubby.... Thanks Mike ~ thanks Judy.

Favor Box

This is a favor box I made using the new Bigz XL Die Fancy Favor. So easy. Then I punched a part of the embossed Whisper White Card Stock created with the Final Press Embossing Folder and punched out a scallop circle and mounted it to the front with deminsionals. I added some See's Lollipops covered in celophane and tied with Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon. The DSP I used for the box and scallope circle was To The Nines Specialty Paper.

Keep creatin' .. have a GREAT week!

best wishes Card

Hi Stampers ~
Today I created a card! I used the new embossing folder Final Press and the new in colors Rich Razzleberry & Crushed Curry. I colored the Country Morning Stamp with watercolor wonder crayons. The best wishes is from the stamp set Short & Sweet and stamped with the new in color Rich Razzleberry and I punched it out using the Word Window punch and mounted it on Rich Razzleberry paper punched from the new Modern Label which was also mounted on the Movers & Shapers die of the same shape. I also used the Rich Razzleberry Dotted Swiss Ribbon in the center of the card. Mounted it all on a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" base of Crushed Curry. Have a wonderful day and hope you're stampin' too! :o)

Used the Bitty Box & Envelope Bigz Die to cut an envelope and made a 2x2 card to fit inside. This matches the box I made yesterday, enven used the Sizzlet die Thanks on the front of the envelope to match the one I did on the front of the Bitty Box. I used the same DSP and the stamp set Great Friend for the words.
Keep stampin',

Little Thanks Box

The picture on this one isn't to great (sorry), but this new Bigz Die Bitty Box & Envelope is so easy to use (envelope not in the picture). I used the new in color DSP Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay. I used the Melon Mambo Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon and the new little Sizzlet Die Thanks. Around the bottom I attached a strip of Razzleberry Lemonade DSP and used the scallop punch on the top side. Hope you can see it okay?? Happy Stampin', Julia

Friend to Friend

I got new Stampin' Up! goodies today! I love the textured impressions embossing folders. One of the new ones I got today is the Elegant Bouquet (Stampin' Up! Exclusive) ... how easy this card was to make. Embossed a 4" x 5.25" piece of Crushed Curry CS, cut a little window with the Modern Label, and stamped friend to friend from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set with the Crushed Curry Cassic inkpad. Used the in color Soft Suede CS for the card base, tied a little ribbon with the dotted swiss Soft Suede ribbon ... and viola ... a card.
Hope you all had a SAFE and Happy Stampin' Day!

My Take on the little "nugget purse"

Thanks for sharing this idea with me Judy (my twin) ...I know you found it on SCS but I didn't see a name listed. She cased it from someone else on there and the idea goes forward ~ that's what is so awesome about creating, and especially with Stampin' Up! ~ we all share and feel honored when someone wants to duplicate our creations. I used the new DSP Razzleberry Lemonade and a little pink brad and the liner is the new in color textured paper Melon Mambo. The little handle for the purse is the Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon.

The trees were stamped with VersaMark and embossed. The trees were a stamp from the Lovely as a Tree set. I used the new Soft Suede card stock. The Hostess Set Kind & Caring Thoughts for the Best Wishes and Whisper White CS for the card base. Bashful Blue Taffeta ribbon. This is for my B-I-Law. Sure are a lot of Birthday's this time of year??

Happy Stampin'
