Stamp Set Summer Silhouettes

A Little Something When Things Get Rough

You know you are obsessed when things are not just yellow but Daffodil Delight or Tangerine Tango instaed of orange.     You know you are very obsessed when you buy things because they are Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango or any of the other Stampin' Up colors. Have you ever done that?  Well, I definitely do  and so now you know i am obsessed, just in case you did not already know that!

I found this nail file and knew I had to buy it because it coordinated so well with Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Rich Razzleberry!

Nail file

I made a topper using the Labels Collection Framelits stamped with the Summer Silhouettes stamp set leaf.   The flowers are punched with the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack and the little butterfly is from the Beautiful Wings embosslit.   The plastic bag is what the nail file was already packaged in.  All I did was open it and attach the flap to the inside of the topper.  Wouldn't this make a fun little gift?   I am thinking of cheesy little sayings like, "to help make things a little smoother" or "for when things get rough"  would be fun to place in the bag or on a tag.

The world is a colorful place and I love that I have these Stampin Up! names of colors that I can use and you instantly know what I mean.   It is almost like our own not so secret code.  Well, I am off to run some errands and will keep a lookout for more little gift items that I can dress up.  Stay tuned cause you know I am going to share them with you.

Summer Silhouettes and the Floral District DSP

Today’s card is made with the Summer Silhouette set.  This set was on and off the list for my first order from the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog.   Did I really need another flower set?  I know silly question!  The answer is there is always room for another flower set.   Besides it is another training tool since it is another example of doing the 2 Step, 2 Step Stamping that is!

Sharon’s Stamping tip: I just love it that the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack fits around these flowers from the Floral District DSP!  Don’t look underneath the Pumpkin Pie card stock there are probably some flowers missing from the DSP!

I used the new Essential Paper-Piercing Pack, Pierce Mat, and Paper Piercing Tool to make sure my brads were evenly spaced.  I love the new Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack!  It is so much bigger which makes it easier to use.  There are lots of templates so you can pierce around lots of different punch and Big Shot shapes.  There will be more templates to come so get your Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack, Mat, and Tool now!  You can order online at my store or call me and I will be happy to help you!
