Out with the Old…In with the New!

Time to get back to some Stamping!

I have been on the road quite a bit in the last few weeks.  I started in Chicago (where I call home) and went to Akron, OH for a family wedding.  Stayed in Cleveland with family for a week and then headed to the Outer Banks with family for a week in the sun.  I thought I would be able to do some stamping, but family time and enjoying the shore took precedence!  I, however, am back to playing in my craft space!

NOTE:  for the newer products or any with current items, I have included the hyper links to take you directly to my Stampin Up Store where you can acquire these great products!

The Old…….

Geez, I have been on the Fence with picking up the Occasions Carousel Birthday…and made the jump right before it retired….I am  just starting to play with it and glad that at the last minute, decided to snap it up!  Note:  something speaks to you….don’t ignore it.  Unfortunately, this set is no longer available, but had to share……

I totally CASED this card but credit goes to Pinterest Stamper Stampin Smiles by Jackie.

The New….

I was lucky to be able to attend Onstage in Minneapolis this year….and picked up a few things in April.  The Daisy Delight Stamp Set with the Daisy punch were some of my early acquisitions.  A fellow team member (Penni Behr)  created this beauty and I CASED it with a few changes…..

Couple of notes.

  • The flower is stamped twice an then cut out twice
  • I added the green center in Pear Pizzaz
  • The leaves are stamped on Old Olive with Old Olive and fussy cut
  • The Happy Birthday is cut out twice.  The top layer is Pear Pizzaz and the bottom layer is Old Olive.  This was done for contrast
  • The layer papers are Whisper White embossed with the Petal Burst embossing folder (5 X 3 3/4)
  • The middle layer is Daffodil Delight (5 1/4 X 4)
  • The card base is Old Olive (11 X 4 1/4 scored at 5 1/2)

And one more…..


And who doesn’t love Eastern Palace?  The card below was created by my upline, Connie Stewart and is another CASE.  I have yet to really dig into this set, but think that the possibilities for color, media (think watercolors…) and adaptation of the many stamps, will keep anyone creating for quite some time!

This card started with a Whiseper White Base, A square Melon Mambo base layer and a Whisper White slightly smaller (by 1/4″) Whisper White base.  This is where the thinlets —2 used together), created the cut outs.  A little stamping and a Silver Glimmer banner to seat the greeting….poof!  Complete!
