Inlaid Framelits

I’m calling the technique used in this card an Inlaid Framelit.  On a rare occasion believe it or not, I do come up with a concept on my own.  Of course it came about accidently but hey, it did come about no less.    And it’s not to say that someone else has not already used this same concept but I can honestly say that I didn’t copy it.  Sooo…I am patting myself on the back.

I first cut out the center with Whisper White.  Then with the same label framelit, I cut out the mat with Calypso Coral.  This cuts out the center of the label to accomodate the Whisper White label.  Next I used the framelit one size larger and centered it over the previous cut.  This embossed and cut outside of the mat.

A Cherished Friend

One of the best things about stamping with Stampin’ UP! is the people you get to meet.  I have met so many wonderful people since I have been stamping.  It is always a pleasure to get together and stamp or have dinner just to gab.   Judy Sumner is one of the friends I have made stamping and I treasure every minute we spend together.  Earlier this month she had a birthday.  Now that I’m thinking about it, she didn’t mention her age but that’s really not that important is it?  Your only as old as you feel.  I digress.

Anyway her birthday happened to fall on our monthly demonstrator dinner and challenge so we were able to celebrate her birthday and talk shop at the same time.  I saw this card many months ago and was saving the concept for a special occasion.  Judy is a cherished friend.  I can’t think of a better occasion.

Summer Picnic

Summer Picnic


This card takes me back to my childhood when my mom took my brothers and me to Forest Park several times each summer.  Along with my grandma, aunt and cousins, we would to the St. Louis Zoo and then have a picnic lunch in the park.  Those picnic lunches of bologna sandwiches with semi-cool koolaid make me wince just thinking about it now but at the time, we were in high cotton. 
The Domestic Goddess DSP reminds me of our picnic table cloth. When I saw this card on Mary Fish's website I knew that I had to have it. We made this card at my September Stamp Camp. Everyone enjoyed building the flower using the Blossum Petal and Scallop Circle Punch.
