Stampin' Up! cards

I love the new Bella Rose Designer Paper that Stampin' Up! is coming out with. The birthday wises card uses it and it also uses the new Wow Flowers set. I have been making these "scallop punch" flowers like crazy and think they are really cute. The Just a Note card uses retired Designer paper but I wanted to use the colors in it. Just a note is in the Elegant Cheer set.

I really like doing these little bags. Here is another one, this one is using retired Designer Papers from Stampin' Up!. Give these a try they are really fun to make.


I have finally had a chance to make something and I love this little bag. This is done with Stampin' Up!s new Designer Series Paper Bella Rose. I also used the Pretties Kit and White Grosgrain Ribbon.
I found these wonderful directions at:
Give Cami a visit and see all the great projects she has.

Here are two daylilies that have been blooming well in my garden. The one on the right is Broach Cameo but I'm not certain on the left one.

Another Card using Bella Rose

I have to admit that I CASE'd the sunflower card from Patty Bennetts blog. Please visit her at:

Stampin' Up! Cards

These cards are completed using the new Bella Rose Designer Paper that will be introduced in the upcoming Stampin' Up! Catalog and Idea Book. I have also used soon to be released stamp sets Heard from the Heart and Wow Flowers. New colors Kiwi Kiss and Riding Hood Red are the backgrounds for the cards.
For the Birthday Wishes card I used the white grosgrain ribbon that I ran across the Kiwi Kiss pad to give it the blotchy color. Punches used were Scallop Circle, Large Oval, Word Window, Round Tab and the new Scallop Edge Punch. Birthday Wishes comes from one of my favorites that is in the current catalog Elegant Cheer.

I had finished these layouts last week for a challenge on Club Scrap Chat. Our great-grandson at his first birthday. What a ball watching him go at that cake.

Christmas in July

I have started making Christmas cards so I thought I would post some. The top card is done with Club Scraps Matrix Kit. I used the Cuttlebug for the background, then used Stampin' Up! Craft White stamp pad to go over the snowflakes. The let it snow is from a retired Stampin' Up! set.
The Peaceful Wishes card is done with the new soon to be released colors from Stampin' Up! . I used Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss for both the card stock and the inks. I am really beginning to like these new colors. The Peaceful Wishes set will be retiring very soon but I'm sure that there will be another wonderful set to take its place for the holidays.

Flower Power Card Kit

I have not had time to add anything lately. I do now have a few cards that I have completed using the soon to be released Simply Sent Card Elements Kit Flower Power. This will be in the new catalog and idea book that Stampin' Up! will release in August.

I have a few more that I have made from the kit that I will get added later. I did not follow the same pattern for each card as directed in the kit. You are able to make 9 complete cards of the same pattern so I varied mine a little. I will still have 9 cards from the kit to show you
