A Patriotic Stamp Off Challenge

Good morning and Happy Friday to everyone.  Today is our day for our Stamp Off Challenge with Buffy, Jackie and me!  Today we are doing a patriotic challenge.

Here is my card:

I just realized as I was posting this that I did absolutely no stamping with this card.  It was super easy to make.  I used Blueberry Bushel, Poppy Parade and Whisper White cardstock.  I like the Poppy Parade better than Real Red and the Blueberry Bushel instead of Night Of Navy because they are a little brighter.

To make this card I first embossed a piece of Blueberry Bushel cardstock using the Oh My Stars Embossing Folder.  Then I cut it at a diagonal and attached it to a piece of 4″ x 5.25″ Whisper White cardstock.  I cut three 1/2″ strips of Poppy Parade cardstock and adhered them to the Whisper White.  The word celebrate is from the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies.

Now let’s go see what kind of patriotic card Buffy and Jackie made.  I am sure you will love them!

Saying Goodbye To Cool Treats

I was thinking as I was typing this that I was just saying goodbye to the stamp set called Cool Treats and the matching dies called Frozen Treats when I realized there is a lot more on this card that is retiring.

Cool Treats is one of my favorite sets.  It is just so much fun and reminds me of summer months.  Of course, ice cream is one of my favorite things so that helps too.  It is definitely a stamp set I will be keeping forever especially since it has matching Framelits.  Both of these items are still available (at least today they are).

The colors I used on this card are Sweet Sugarplum and Peekaboo Peach.  These are two of the InColors that are retiring too.  The Designer Series Paper I used is in the 2018 Occasions Catalog and is called Picture Perfect.  Lastly, the Ticket Tear Border Punch I used is also retiring!  The good news is the Oh My Stars Embossing Folder is being carried over into the new Annual Catalog that begins June 1st.

Here are a couple of cards I made in the past that used Cool Treats.
