You gotta love this time of year with Stampin Up!…this card was made utilizing a variety of products from their big Sale-a-bration and Occasions Mini Catalogs.  The designer series paper is called Everyday Enchantment and was from the Sale-a-bration catalog (which unfortuntately ended March 31st).  However, the good news is that all of the other items used to make this card are still available in the Occasions Mini and Idea Book! 

Supplies used:
Old Olive and Bashful Blue Card Stock
Mixed Bunch Stamp Set and Punch
Pear Pizzaz Pleated Ribbon
Eyelet Border Punch
Everyday Enchantment Brads and Paper
Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder


Great Mother’s Day or Birthday Card!  This card was CASE’d from a post on pinterest. The flower portion of this card slides into the flower pot.  You can find templates for the flower pot on my pinterest site (Lynn Dunn). 🙂  This was a challenging card to put together.  I am working on other ideas for the leaves as I was not extremely thrilled with how they turned out.
Supplies include:
Everday Enchantment Designer Series Paper
Bright Buttons
Red Riding Hood Ribbon
Marnia Mist, Peach parfait, Red Riding Hood, Garden Green and Pretty in Pink Card Stock

“Rue Des Fleurs” is one of my fav stamp sets from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I love the vintage look which this set really captures.  The background stamp is called “En Francais” and is stamped in crumb cake ink on very vanilla card stock. Once the background was stamped, I used the umbrella stamp from the Rue Des Fleurs set and stamped, in soft suede, over the top of the background. I colored in parts of the umbrella with a blushing bride marker.

Supplies used to make this card:
Crumb cake, very vanilla and blushing bride card stock
Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper
Antique Brads
Blushing Bride Poly Stitched Ribbon, Victoria Crochet Trim and Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon
Inks:  Crumb Cake and Soft Suede

This card took first place, WOO HOO, in our demonstrator swap contest during the month of January.  I designed it in accordance with the Sale-a-bration products which was our theme for the month. 

Supplies include:  Everyday enchantment designer series paper and brads, bashful blue & early espresso card stock, designer frames, and the pleated ribbon.  The stamp set is “The Language of Friendship.”

Valentine’s Day Card

Supplies:  Heart Framelits, Modern Label and Word Window Punches, Dazzling Details Cherry, P.S. I love you stamp set, rhinestones, Polka Dot Designer Series Paper, Victoria lace ribbon, Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder, Red Riding Hood and Confetti White Card Stock.

Grateful Bird

Love the new elegant bird die from Stampin Up! So easy to use and really makes a statement on my cards.  Colors used:  Bravo Burgundy, Per Pizzazz, and River Rock.  The Bird’s wings are made with the new Sale-a-bration DSP.

The Earth Laughs in Flowers

Yep…working with the Fabulous Florets stamp set again!  Love this set!  So many designs, so many possibilities.  We will put this card together at one of my upcoming card classes!

Thoughts and Prayers

I had the opportunity to put this card together at one of the classes I attended. We used the “thoughts and prayers” stamp set, coloring all of the leaves and the trunk of the tree with the Stampin Up markers before applying the stamp to the paper.  Great technique! I also like the paper crinkler that we used on the brown background paper.  🙂

Pretty in Pink

My mom and I put this card together over the weekend.  Simple, but pretty! I used up a bunch of scrap paper putting this together which was very cool!  We used the butterfly punch and the Fabulous Florets stamp set to design the butterfly on this card. 

Halloween Birthday Fun

Fun little Halloween Birthday card I put together for a friend of my mother. I used some older designer halloween paper and the Vintage Vogue stamp set.  I also used Crystal Effects on the “F”…it gave it a 3-D look, very cool!  Unfortunately, I put the crystal effects on after I took the picture.  🙂
