I have been itching to play with the new Apron of Love bundle. So, I finally thought these colors were perfect to design with!
I started by cutting the apron from the Sale-a-Bration Designer Series Paper, Bubbles & Fizz.
I used the hostess set, Yay You, to stamp the hearts on either side of the strip of Lemon Lime Twist (it’s part of a card from the Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes, a free Sale-a-Bration item).
The trim along the bottom of the apron is the same as the Calypso Coral trim along the side of the Lemon Lime Twist strip. It’s one of the framelits included in the set! So are the cute little utensils and the apron pocket! This set is just adorable!
Check out the other Design team cards on our blog. You can show off your creations on our Facebook page this week!
I decided to not create a valentine or love themed card! Because we still need other types of cards!
I went with this lovely –
A nice mix of colors, products and patterns! The Designer Series Paper isn’t really that at all! It’s part of a card from the Sale-a-Bration item, Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes. I just trimmed the card down and used both pieces here!
The black and white Designer Series Paper is the Petal Passion. It’s part of the Petal Passion Suite – such gorgeous items in this suite!
Simply created card!
The other Design team members created wonderful cards as well. Please check them out here. Want to play along with our challenge? You can do so on our Facebook page! Hope to see there!
I have been playing around with the Beautiful Day stamp set again. This time, I designed a card for try Stampin’ on Tuesday and our newest challenge –
These are the best sketches! Clean. Simple.
I designed this card –
It is quite similar to the one I created on Saturday.
I used the same colors, because these are great colors, and the same butterfly only in vellum here. I stamped the butterfly and let it dry. I turned it over and used the Stampin’ Write markers to color the sections on the wings. Flipped over, it gives it a stained glass effect. So pretty!
And, you guessed it, I did fussy cut the butterfly out. Again. Tip if you cut it out, cut out the antennae first. Its way easier.

We always need masculine ideas! Those seem to be the most difficult to create.
I am trying to go through my Paper Pumpkin stash and use some of the kits. I created this –
Guys like to know they are appreciated too! So, a thank you card was more than winner!
This card is from the Bold Botanicals kit from August 2016. Currently, I can feature a class using this kit. I just repurposed some the pieces to create the design. Here is what the kit looks like –
I do love these monthly subscriptions, just like with lots of my Stampin’ Up products and other craft stuff- I don’t get around to playing as much as I should or need to!
