Creating Again!

I'm BACK!!!!    Sorry it's been so long since I've posted.
  Sometimes my stamping and crafting has to take a backseat.  I appreciate you continuing to check back here.

This card takes advantage of several items from the 2013-2014 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog
  • 2013-2015 In Colors: Baked Brown Sugar, Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana
  • Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder 129984
  • Apothecary Accents Framelits Die 127003
  • Strawberry Slush 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Ribbon
  • Decorative Label Punch
  • Sassy Salutations Stamp Set
Do you like the strip background paper?  Yep, Strip, not Stripe!

It's made from strips of Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, Pistachios Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe glued onto Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock.

The greeting is from Sassy Salutations Stamp Set
 Sassy Salutations

On sale through the end of June
How about this stretchy ruffled ribbon? 
Look at the textures here.  You just don't get that with a store bought card.

To get me creating again I looked to these challenges to get me going.
 Create with Connie and Mary Challenge 
and the
Fab Friday Challenge

Just one more quick THANKS for visiting, commenting, and checking in on me when I don't post for a few days. 


  1. What a super simple card that is so fun!! Love the strip paper and the layered ribbon! Thanks for playing the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!

  2. Thanks Deb!!

    I've not posted directions yet (they are coming!) I guess you could tell, the background paper is just tiny strips of the New In Colors glued to the Brown Sugar...THANKS for noticing.

  3. Oh how fun is this! I love how you made your 'background' paper and the fun layered ribbon...too cute! Thanks for playing along this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

  4. Oh wow, no wonder I didn't recognize your dsp, lol! You created it yourself!! How very clever... love it and the layered ribbon for a double ruffle effect! Cool! Thanks for joining us this week for the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

  5. Great use of supplies! The half framelit shape as a background for the sentiment is awesome. Also love your ribbon treatment! So smart to double the ruffled trim up like that to make a wider ribbon! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

  6. Very cute, Mary! I love what you did with the ribbon, and your custom-made dsp looks amazing. Very clever! Thanks for joining us at Fab Friday!

  7. I love the way you created your own striped background paper! I was thinking to myself...what package is that DSP from? Then I read your post and found out you made it...perfect! Thanks for playing the Create with Connie & Mary sketch challenge this week!
