Let Them Eat – a Piece of Cake

My DSP (Designer Series Paper) stash is getting Out Of Control. I could (gasp) get rid of some, or I could just use it. Wait – what was the question?

The Botanical Butterfly DSP from the 2019 Sale-a-bration catalog is really versatile. One side of each design is a full color butterfly based design, and the reverse is a black and white design. Some are geometric, like these dots, while others would be excellent choices for coloring. I love it when our products can meet so many needs!

We did this in one of my clubs, and some of the crafters chose to use the reverse side with the colored butterfly design. It’s just a different look, and I love that they explored their own ideas.

Maui Stamper Stampin' Up! Piece of Cake


That little flower at the top of the cake seemed like the perfect touch to finish this sunny card. I stocked up on the black Rhinestone Jewels when they were on the Clearance Rack, and if you don’t have any you can always use a Black Sharpie to color a traditional Rhinestone Jewel.

The Wink of Stella just would NOT photograph but trust me, Santa is a-blingin’!!  It’s really quick and easy coloring with the Stampin’ Write markers too.

I want to point out the Oh What Fun stamp set because in my opinion, it’s been overlooked with all the excitement of the 2016 Holiday catalog.  Oh What Fun is in the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog as a returning star from last year’s Holiday catalog, and it is stellar.

Maui Stamper Designer Series Paper Sale October 2016 Stampin Up

All Swirly Whirly

I had no idea I would be so crazy about this Swirly Bird bundle:

Maui Stamper Swirly Bird Fathers Day

Shoosh now.  Don’t tell my Dad.  This is his Fathers Day card and it’s going in the mail today.  I love the open sea feeling of it.

Maui Stamper Swirly Bird Fathers Day

  • Stamps:  Swirly Bird and Crazy About You
  • Color Palette:  Whisper White, Basic Grey, Real Red, Dapper Denim
  • Accessories:  Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, Layering Circle Framelits, Duet Banner Punch, Stampin’ Sponges, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Wink of Stella clear glitter brush

The new 2016-2018 In Colors are absolutely scrumptious.  (I always have a little heart failure when there’s a new set of In Colors and I have to put that 2-year-away date out there.  2018?  Holy Mackerel Andy.)  Dapper Denim is a beautiful shade of blue!

This card is based on a layout done by Janet Wakeland.  I tweaked it a bit – can you see the Wink of Stella?  {wink, wink}  I’ve been busy turning out all kinds of Swirly projects!

Maui Stamper Swirly Bird Fathers Day

Don’t judge me or anything, but Swirly Bird was a bit of a last minute, oh-why-not addition to my first big new catalog order.  I thought it was interesting, but I wasn’t exactly over the moon about it.

I also ordered the Layering Circle Framelits only because I had a demonstrator award that allowed me to get them for free.  I have the old Circle Framelits.  Why would I possibly need these?  There couldn’t be that much difference, could there?

I was wrong.  There is.
