Stampin' Up! Color & Contour

I decided to break out the Color & Contour bundle.  I really like the big scallop border punch.   Because it is so big and bold, I wanted to use bold, bright colors.  The "hello there" greeting is from Sweet Strawberry stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Majestic Mountain

Our son-in-law, Jim is celebrating a birthday and this is the card we sent him.  He loves the outdoors.  He likes hunting, fishing, golfing, sports.  So I wanted to reflect that in his card.  Mountain Air certainly fits the bill!  You probably noticed  there isn't a greeting.  I just couldn't decide where to put it so I stamped it on the inside.  Sometimes cards really don't need a greeting....

Stampin' Up! Floral Heart

This card is on it's way to my brother and sister-in-law for their 51st Wedding Anniversary.  We haven't seen them in over 18 months.  We couldn't celebrate their 50th Anniversary last year so we are hoping that in the near future we can get together with them.  

I was struggling with designing a card for them.  I just seemed to have lost my mojo for a bit.  Does that ever happen to you?  When it happens to me, I open up the catalog and look at the samples.  Our Creative Team at Stampin' Up! continues to inspire me!  I CASE'd (Copy and Share Everything) from the Annual Catalog (page 74).  I changed it up a bit with a different color card base and die cut the heart from the Gold Metallic Paper instead of the Pink.

Stampin' Up! Handsomely Suited

This is such a fun bundle - I'm glad that it is carrying over.  I will miss the designer series paper, though, as it is retiring at the end of June.  Just think of all of the different outfits you can make: Santa, a Leprechaun, a lab coat, sports shirts, even a dress!

I need to give credit to demonstrator Jaime Babarczy (Stamp it up with Jaime) for this card.  It is a pocket card!  The Night of Navy cardstock it 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2".  The fold is at the bottom to form the pocket.  The Basic White cardstock is 3 1/4", scored at 5 1/2" and is the card. How clever is this!
