We Create June Blog Hop

This is my third of three posts today for Three post Thursday and new catalog launching!! This is a blog hop for We Create!

I went with one of my favorites from the catalog so far, the Lovely Words Thinlits –

libbystamps, stampin up, BFBH, Wood Words, Lovely Words Thinlits, Fresh Florals DSP

A simple card showcasing the cutout words.

I paired the framelits with a sentiment from Wood Words. I used two new In-Colors here too, Powder Pink and Berry Burst.

I stepped up this card by adding the 1/8 Silver ribbon. Surprisingly, it curled when I ran it quickly along a pair of scissors! I also added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

We Create May Blog Hop

This is my second of two blog hops today! I’ve got a couple of great cards for We Create Bloggers!

For this duo of cards, I used new products!

I was on the fence about this new bundle, Eastern Beauty, but once I saw all the samples………I just had to get it!

This is my simple card –

And, one super cute –

libbystamps, stampin up, Basket Bunch, Basket Bunch Bundle, Basket Builder Framelits, Succulent Garden, We Create

The first card was on my March Card Buffet. People loved it!

The Basket Bunch Bundle is an absolute must have from this Occasions Mini catalog! I loved the simplicity of the first card, until………until, I added the designer series paper. The addition made the card really cute!

Make a Wish, We Create March Blog Hop

Save the best for last? Um, maybe. This is the third post for today, and it’s for We Create Bloggers!

e7ca1-wcbh2016

I decided to go with the same layout this month and use different color schemes.

Here is the first simply sweet card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Window Shopping, Window Box Thinlits, Brights DSP Stack, Playful Palette, We Create, birthday

I say sweet because it uses Sweet Sugarplum and the new Sale-a-Bration glimmer paper pack you can get, For Free.

My other card is geared to be a bit more masculine and uses the Bermuda Bay glimmer paper and coordinating DSP.

libbystamps, stampin up, Window Shopping, Window Box Thinlits, Brights DSP Stack, Playful Palette, We Create, birthday

Yes, both of these, plus Mint Macaron Glimmer paper come in the 6×6 Glimmer Paper Assortment, 12 sheets, 4 of each color!

libbystamps, stampin up, Window Shopping, Window Box Thinlits, Brights DSP Stack, Playful Palette, We Create, birthday Two great cards. One great layout!

We Create the Love for February Blog Hop

This is the third post, another blog hop, you’ll be seeing from me today!

I’m feelin’ the love in this post. I’ve gotten to be a crafty little one lately!

e7ca1-wcbh2016

These two cards are for We Create! Our theme we work with is to either create a card then step it up or create two cards using the same layout. I chose to sort combine the two ideas.

Here is my first card, filled with love of course!

libbystamps, stampin up, sale-a-bration 2017, SAB17, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Double Take, Any Occasion

It’s stamped repeatedly. So simple, adding a silver heart highlighting ‘you’.

libbystamps, stampin up, sale-a-bration 2017, SAB17, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Double Take, Any OccasionThis one is stamped directly on the Whisper White card front. The heart is stapled on with the mini stapler for an edgy look. Although, you can barely see it!

The next card is a stepped up or stepped over version –

libbystamps, stampin up, sale-a-bration 2017, SAB17, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Double Take, Any Occasion

I added a Real Red heart and tiny stamped hearts for added effect.

libbystamps, stampin up, sale-a-bration 2017, SAB17, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Double Take, Any Occasion

This one is mounted using Dimensionals onto a Dapper Denim base.

libbystamps, stampin up, sale-a-bration 2017, SAB17, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits, Double Take, Any Occasion

Together both cards are simply stunning. Great masculine cards for any occasion too.

Food Truck Fun for We Create, Blog Hop

This is the second blog hop and post you’ll be seeing from me this New Years day!

Wahoo! I’ve gotten to be a crafty little one lately! With new, upcoming stuff!!!!

e7ca1-wcbh2016

This is for We Create! Our theme we work with is to either create a card then step it up or create two cards using the same layout.

So what I did was to combine both ideas into one theme.

Here is one of my cards –

libbystamps, stampin up, Tasty Trucks, Stitched Shapes Framelits, A Little Foxy DSP, Envelope Liners Framelits, We Create, SAB 2017

I used an upcoming free stamp set you can earn during Sale-a-Bration! It’s too cute!

libbystamps, stampin up, Tasty Trucks, Stitched Shapes Framelits, A Little Foxy DSP, Envelope Liners Framelits, We Create, SAB 2017

See. Same layout, similar card, one simple, one a little more fancy!

I even went so far as to create envelope liners!!!

libbystamps, stampin up, Tasty Trucks, Stitched Shapes Framelits, A Little Foxy DSP, Envelope Liners Framelits, We Create, SAB 2017

I figured, why not? I have SO much DSP that is retired……..I should just use  it –  like this to create a really nice ensemble while it’s still current!

libbystamps, stampin up, Tasty Trucks, Stitched Shapes Framelits, A Little Foxy DSP, Envelope Liners Framelits, We Create, SAB 2017

Love this colored one too! So fun and bright!

libbystamps, stampin up, Tasty Trucks, Stitched Shapes Framelits, A Little Foxy DSP, We Create, SAB 2017

And together, what a cute set of cards!!!! Wouldn’t you agree?

Step It Up Reindeer, We Create Blog Hop

This is the second blog hop and post you’ll be seeing from me!

Wahoo! Been a crafty little one lately!

e7ca1-wcbh2016

This is for We Create! Our theme we work with is to either create a card then step it up or create two cards using the same layout.

This time, I chose to create a card and make it twice using the same layout. Here is the fist one –

libbystamps, stampin up, We Create, Red Foil Sheets, Pom-Pom Trim, Festive EF, Candy Cane Lane DSP, Cookie Cutter Builder, Cookie Cutter Christmas, Layering Ovals Framelits

It is sort of simple in design until you open it –

libbystamps, stampin up, We Create, Red Foil Sheets, Pom-Pom Trim, Festive EF, Candy Cane Lane DSP, Cookie Cutter Builder, Cookie Cutter Christmas, Layering Ovals Framelits

It’s a gift card holder! And, it used the same size card stock as a regular card, it’s just scored differently!

The other card uses the remaining half of the Real Red card stock –

libbystamps, stampin up, We Create, Red Foil Sheets, Pom-Pom Trim, Festive EF, Candy Cane Lane DSP, Cookie Cutter Builder, Cookie Cutter Christmas, Layering Ovals Framelits

It’s a way fancier front, but it uses the same basic layout.

Here, you can see the two next to each other –

libbystamps, stampin up, We Create, Red Foil Sheets, Pom-Pom Trim, Festive EF, Candy Cane Lane DSP, Cookie Cutter Builder, Cookie Cutter Christmas, Layering Ovals Framelits

What do you think? You like? The cards are sort of stepped up and sort of stepped over!

I love both of them! The retired Red Foil Paper (it’s still on the Clearance Rack) and Pom-Pom Trim was a great added bonus here!

I’d love to read what you think before heading over to Julie’s blog to see what she created.

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Cookie Cutter Christmas
  • Dies – Layering Ovals Framelits
  • Punches – Cookie Cutter Builder
  • Card Stock – Real Red, Early Espresso, Crum Cake, Whisper White
