Good Morning Everyone! My Make It Monday share is a Flag Card created with the Stampin' Up! Scalloped Thinlits Die. It was inspired by Melanie Coverston ,but I made a few changes to make it my own. I used the Big Shot Machine to die cut the main scalloped layer in Whisper White. I then repeated the same step twice in Night of Navy and Real Real. Next, I used the negative pieces to fill in the flag. Mini Glue dots made this step easy. Finally, I attached my sentiment created with the Stampin' Up! Lots of Thanks stamp set, Star Framelits Dies, and New Banner Triple Punch. Let us not forget the dedicated men and women who sacrificed so much for our freedom!

Good Morning Everyone! My Try It Thursday share is another Encouragement Card created with the New Stampin' Up! You've Got This stamp set. I am addicted to flowers, so this set was a must. I created the background using the cross hatch stamp included in the set. I then colored, cut, and attached the flower image, to the front of the card; using Stampin' Dimensionals. I love how they give this card depth. Finally, I stamped my sentiment and embellished with Rhinestones. Each of the card elements came together to make a Clean and Simple Card!

Good Morning Everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! I spent mine playing with new goodies from the upcoming Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog 2015 - 2016. My Make It Monday share is an Encouragement Card created with the New Sprinkles of Life Ronald McDonald stamp set and coordinating Tree Builder Punch. With every purchase, Stampin' Up! will make a $3.00 donation to RMHC; which helps families all over. For this card, I used the new Cherry On Top Designer Series Paper for the background. I then stamped each of the ice cream scoops on card stock and punched them out. I repeated the same step with the cone, however, I fussy cut it with scissors. After assembling my ice cream, I added my sentiment and a banner created with the New Banner Triple Punch. My final step was embellishing with Baker's Twine and Candy Dots! Yummy!
