Our theme this month is perfect – All About You!

I took this a little personally. I made three projects translating some of my favorites in stamped card form.

I am here because…..

I.

Love.

To Stamp.

I literally create something everyday. Yes, every day.

This is a little booklet created for my stamp club 6 ladies. They each made one at the first class in July. They can jot down stamps they ‘need’.

Next, a favorite drink of mine……

libbystamps, stampin up, Coffee Cafe Bundle, Coffee Cafe, Coffee Cups Framelits, Timeless Textures

Coffee!

Current love? Cold brew. Shared with a friend, my daughter.

….and, this bundle – it’s one of the best in the catalog!

I love flowers. Tulips more specifically and the color black.

These Tranquil Tulips are a favorite stamp set of mine! Isn’t this just gorgeous??

Daisy, Congrats to You!

Hello stampin’ friends! Time to share a card I created for Create with Connie and Mary  and our newest color challenge that started today!

I pulled out the card stocks as a starting point. I always do with color inspirations.

After plying around with a few different ideas…..I settled on this –

libbystamps, stampin up, 2017-2018 Catalog, Banners For You, Bunch of Banners Framelits, Color Theory DSP, Daisy Punch, 1/2 Circle Punch, CCMC

Super adorable in person! The color balance is really nice here. You need it with these deep tones.

libbystamps, stampin up, 2017-2018 Catalog, Banners For You, Bunch of Banners Framelits, Color Theory DSP, Daisy Punch, 1/2 Circle Punch, CCMC

The Color Theory Designer Series 6×6 Paper Stack really help that balance of color. I couldn’t resist using the Daisy Punch either. I added a tiny ‘stem’ partially up next to the Designer Series Paper.

The leaves are from the Banners For You stamp set as well the sentiment and, of course, the banner!

This came together so nicely, I think I’ll have this on the Card Buffet this Sunday!

Did I inspire you with my colorful card? The Design Team did a great job with the colors this week. Check out their cards at Create with Connie and Mary .

  • Stamp Set – Banners For You

Happy Hour with You

I have a fun card today for a new Create with Connie and Mary  challenge!

Isn’t this a great layout? I love the different shape in the center. Sort of tapered in.

I knew I wanted to use this new Color Theory Designer Series Paper stack again. It’s one of those 6×6 stacks!

And, for some reason, I decided to go with this Mixed Drinks set!

I had Cherry Cobbler still on the table and thought, perfect for a red wine color! So I went with the beer and wine!

Of course, they are fussy cut! I wouldn’t have it any other way! Just kidding, the framelits do spoil us!

What a fun card to leave for your someone special! Perhaps even to initiate a date, with a drink too!!

This is a great layout! The other Design team members did some fabulous creations using it. Check them out on our Create with Connie and Mary. And, if we inspired you, link up a card on our Facebook page.

Supplies –

  • Stamp Set – Mixed Drinks
  • Card Stock – Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
  • Ink – Memento Black, Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry

Watercooler Wednesday 127 – Judy’s All About Birthdays Challenge

Been a few days since I posted. Good to be back. I’m sharing a card created for Watercooler Wednesday.

Our theme this week was chosen by  Judy  –

Everyone loves a good birthday challenge! I went with this –

libbystamps, stampin up, Happy Birthday Thinlits, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Happy Birthday, Balloon Builder Punch, Color Theory DSP, Pretty Label  Punch, WWC, gift card holder

A fun take with this Happy Birthday thinlits set. I separated it to do a little something extra with it! I placed it side by side. The DSP I used the same sheet, just reversed one of them to use the other side!

Also super fun because it’s a . . . . . . . . . . .

libbystamps, stampin up, Happy Birthday Thinlits, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Happy Birthday, Balloon Builder Punch, Color Theory DSP, Pretty Label  Punch, WWC, gift card holder

Gift card holder!

I used the standard size card. I just scored, folder over, punched and adhered the flap to create a pocket for the gift card! So easy!
