Just Sayin' .... Woo Hoo!

I was busy today pricing my stamps that I will be selling on Saturday at the Used Stamp Sale at Stamper's Alley in Mooresville.  There are going to be some great deal!  I have several boxes of stamps - all priced under $10 - most of them at $3 and $5!  I hope to get rid of them and have a little cash to buy some new stamps.  I got to look at the 2015-16 catalog today and found several things I want!  Can't wait to share it with you.  I don't think you will be disappointed in the new In Colors!

I also had a little time today to make a couple of cards.

I'm so sad to see these sets go away - Four Feathers and Just Sayin'.  (Although they won't be included in the stamp sale!  I'll still be using them from time to time.)

I used several stamp sets (as you can see from the list below).  I don't usually use so many but I was on a roll and just kept adding little elements here and there.  The birdie is from a hostess set that hasn't seen too much ink so guess I'll be holding on to it a little longer.

Perfect Blend 50th Birthday

Our doctor recently turned the big 5-0.  So I made a card for him.  I used the coffee cup from Perfect Blend since he is a big coffee drinker.  I don't have the Perfect Blend stamp set BUT I do have the digital stamp.  So, I printed out the coffee cups onto Naturals card stock and the wrappers onto green dotted DSP and cut them out.  I used the Chevron embossing folder for the green card.  Just Sayin' stamp set has gotten to be one of my favorites!!  I used it for the "you're how old" along with the matching Word Window framelits.  I die cut the "5" and the "0" using the retired Bigz Die.

Stamp Club Cards

This week was Stamp Club and we had fun making a gift card holder (thanks to Allison!) and three cards using stamps and bundles from the Occasions Catalog.  I had a lot of DSP to use before it retires.

This is a Gift Card holder.  The gift card slides in behind the stars.  It is super easy to make using SU's note cards.  You get 20 notecards and envelopes for $5.95!!  What a deal!  Think of how many of these you could do at Christmas.  This is another great use for the Envelope Punch Board.  I used Retro Fresh DSP for the card...  The Tangerine Tango star (Perfect Pennents) is hand cut and the two gold paper stars are punched using a retired SU Star Punch.  We also used the DSP to make a liner for the envelope.  "Woo Hoo" is from Just Sayin' bundle (stamps and framelits).  To make the Gift Card Holder, cut away 1 3/4" from the front of the note card.  Make the file folder tab using the Envelope Punch Board.  Decorate.  Use Red Line tape for the sides.

This card will be my mom's Mother's Day card.  I used Afternoon Picnic DSP on the card.  The card and the Arrows embossed piece are Very Vanilla.  I used the Banners framelits to cut out the large and smaller banners.  The little flags are punched with the Flag punch from Sale-a-bration but it will in the new catalog this summer.  I used the Itty Bitty punches for the little flowers.  I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of DSP.  I also used a scrap of DSP for the top of the Vanilla banner.  Everything is popped up with dimensionals.  The pearls are some non-SU ones that I had in my stash.

 The card above is the one we made in club but I also stamped the one below as a sample.  This is a technique I hadn't done before called Telescoping.  I found it on Splitcoast and it is so easy!!  I stamped "Oh Happy Day" in Smoky Slate twice onto white card stock.  Then use the Sunburst framelits - from one stamped image cut the largest and smallest circle.  On the second stamped image, cut out the middle image. Then you just put them together like a puzzle.  The DSP is from the Watercolor pack.  There are so many pretty pieces of paper in this pack of paper!  The three smaller circles are stamped and cut out with the framelits.  The "celebrate" is back with a scallop circle punch.

On the card above, it is hard to tell but I stamped the one circle in Tangerine Tango and the second one is Calypso Coral.  It was not enough of a contrast.  Next time I think I'd like to try to totally different colors.

The final card was the Just Saying' Rainbow card (bundle).  You can check out the other ones I have done and the information HERE.

Word Bubble Rainbow Love

Welcome to spring!  Yesterday and today were beautiful days!!  I'm loving it so far.  The weather man is calling for rain on Friday and Monday and the temps to drop next week - highs only in 60s.  So guess I'll enjoy it while I can!!

The beautiful sunshine prompted me to create a bright and cheery card.  In fact, I loved it so much, I could't stop and made 3 cards using the same theme.  I may be doing this one in club this month.  We'll see!

I used the Word Bubbles Framelits and the Just Sayin' stamp set.  They can both be purchased as a bundle from the Occasions catalog for $37.25 (clear) and $43.95 (wood).  This set did not grab me when I first got the catalog but I have really used them a lot.  Check out my "rainbow" cards using the framelits and stamp:
