Summer Mini – A Little Bit Of Magic & Elements Of Style

I used a stamp set A Little Bit Of Magic from the Stampin’ Up! Summer Mini Catalog.

A Little Bit Of Magic


Summer Mini Catalog #120033
















 Cardstock used is crushed curry, lavender lace, old olive and  naturals white .

The image was colored with  Stampin’ Up Classic inks, in the same colors as the cardstock. Using the aqua painter .

 I distressed the edges of the two layers using the Stampin’ Up! cutter kit.

And the background was embossed with the Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folder – Flowers

The next card didn’t turn out so well. I tried something different . I used the top note die to make this card. Attaching two of the die cuts using glossy white paper. I used the brayer on the tope note die with Bashful blue and Always artichoke classic ink. Right away after I did that. I used my spray bottle and spritzed some water onto the top note. Using the flowers from the Elements Of Style stamp set. I stamped the image and colored it in with the aqua painter. Using Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery and Rose red.

Paper Punched Sheep

I was perusing the gallery at splitcoaststampers and I saw this adorable card and just had to make/ case  it .I’ve seen this sheep before all over the internet. I’m not sure who came up with it. But it’s super cute.  I used a few of the scalloped circles . Broke down the fibers on the paper and tore each layer apart. So is looks fuzzy-ish. I love the punched art. And I love punches. They make for quick fun cards.

For this card.I used a scrap piece of patterned paper. not sure who makes it.  Stampin’ Up! Kraft paper, Basic Black And Whisper White.I added a black button and some white grosgrain ribbon. totally easy and super quick.  I cut the miss ewe using my cricut and some Basic Black paper. Of course I add to add those fun googly, wiggly eyes.

Here are the punches I used ( All Stampin Up Punches )   


I think It may need some doodle lines around the card. So I will probably add those and see how it looks.

I’m still offering a Free 2010-2011 ( once available ) For any on line orders of $30.00 or more you can place your order here  The catalog will ship seperately. Once I receive the New Stampin’ Up!

Gable Box With A Card

Gable Box & Card

Here’s a sweet Gable Box Template . I made the box and the card with Certainly Celery Patterns Designer Series paper. I punched out an oval shape. And added clear window sheets  to make a window on them both.  I also used the Stampin; Up! Little leaves die and the Embosslits Beautiful Wings die ( found in the occasions mini catalog ) to dress up the window a bit.  Another simple and quick idea.
