Stampin' Up! the Old, the New, the Beautiful

Beauty of the Season

A cardinal is singing his cheerful tune even as I write today's post.  Beauty of the Season is a Sneak Peek stamp set great for making Christmas Cards.  And its available to you now.  I also used the soon to Retire Stamp set, Christmas Messages.  And finally, I added random beautiful things from my stash. Put it all together in an eclectic combination for a beautiful Christmas Card in July.  Let's take a closer look.

Beauty of the Season

I colored my Beauty of the Season cardinal with Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie and Smoky Slate Bendabilities markers.  Mr. Cardinal was stamped on Typset Designer Paper which looks and feels like it came straight from a vintage book.  I wasn't sure if the Blendabilities would work on this lightweight paper, but they performed beautifully.

My accents were random pieces of glimmer paper, baker's twine, seam binding and sequin trim.  With a little bit of crumpling, tying, tearing, piercing, embossing and bending and lots of glue dots my card was complete.

Would you like a peek at the inside?

Christmas Messages

My first Christmas verse is also from the soon to retire Christmas Messages Stamp set.  I picked up some gold sequins that were lying on my desk and dotted them across the inside, just because I could.

As always, a complete list of supplies are listed at the bottom of the post.

Hand Stamped Invitation with Sketched Birthday

Sketched Birthday

After a summer off, our small group from church is getting back together.  Yeah, this calls for invitations.  Afterall, that's what I do as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  My Sketched Birthday & That's the Ticket stamp sets were just what I needed to make cutie-pootie invitations.

Sketched Birthday

Finally, an opportunity to use the cute "You're Invited so come" stamp from the Sketched Birthday Stamp set.  I've used this set numerous times for birthday and such.  To highlight the fun invited font I stamped a second time on Real Red Card stock and trimmed off the bottom and the top. 

That's the Ticket

Confession time here, I would have bought the Sketched Birthday set just for the polka dot balloon.  It's pure sweetness.  I colored my balloon with Daffodil Delight Blendabities Markers.  Notice that I left a small white patch to represent light hitting the balloon.

An event like this calls for cute tickets.  First, I stamped my tickets with my That's the Ticket stamp set on Kraft card stock.  Did I mention that I really love the new Kraft card stock?  Then, I punched with the  Ticket Duo Builder Punch.
