July is a big birthday month in our family – my dad, brother, 2 nieces and 2 nephews all have their birthdays in July! One of the big birthdays last month was my niece’s 21st and because I wasn’t able to see her in person I made a special card to celebrate her special birthday.
She is super sporty but also very girly. Like most 21 year old girls she loves clothes and shoes, which is why I thought the Dressed To Impressed stamp set would be the perfect set to use for her card.
The co-ordinating All Dressed Up dies were also just perfect because we gave her a gift card for her birthday and this die set has a die to create a little bag which is big enough to fit a gift card.
I haven’t used the brand new hot pink, Magenta Madness, very much yet but I love it in this card. The shoes are coloured in using a Bumblebee marker and Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight blends before cutting out with the co-ordinating shoe die.
The shoe boxes are easy to make using scraps of crumb cake cut down to size with the Stampin’ Up! paper trimmer.
This gorgeous floral paper is from the Flowers for Every Season 6×6 DSP pack and I also used it to make the gift card mini bag holder. There is a die for the bag handle and cut this out of Magenta Madness to match the card – can you see the cute stitched edging on the bag and the handle?
And how great is the “Life is Short. Buy the shoes” sentiment? I’m sure my niece will be using our gift card to buy some shoes very soon!

I’m so excited to give you a sneak peek today of some new products that will be available to purchase from 3rd June: the Lovely You Bundle (Lovely You stamp set and Lovely Labels Pick a Punch), the Flowers for Every Season 6×6 DSP and five brand new 2020-22 In Colours.
Let’s take a closer look at these in colours. I must admit my early favourite is Misty Moonlight – it’s a softer version of Night of Navy and it looks stunning with Seaside Spray
Each of my five cards feature one of the new in colours, co-ordinated matching DSP and topped with a layered sentiment punched out using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, which is in a bundle with the Lovely Labels stamp set.
This amazing new punch that lets you punch out 6 different styles of punch in three different widths. I used it on the Mother’s Day card I shared with you here to create a double layered mount.
Because this punch gives you the option of 2 different scalloped ends each in 3 different widths and unlimited lengths you can create perfect layered sentiments for so many of our different punches.
For card one I punched out the sentiment in Misty Moonlight at 1 inch wide and layered it onto white card stock punched out with the Timeless label punch (made longer by threading the card stock in one end at a time).
The next colour is Bumblebee, with the white card stock punched out at 1 inch wide and the top layer in Bumblebee punched out with the different end of the punch at 3/4 of an inch. Because it punches only one end of the card stock at a time I could make it long enough to fit this sentiment.
Isn’t Just Jude just gorgeous! For this tiny sentiment I used the narrowest width strip of card stock (1/2 inch) in Just Jade layered on top of the 3/4 inch width in Whisper White.
Magenta Madness is very bright but it teams so well with Melon Mambo and Blushing Bride. Here I’ve used the 3/4 inch and the 1 inch widths in the two different designs for the “just because” sentiment.
Cinnamon Cider is last but definitely not least and like the Magenta Madness card I’ve used the 3/4 inch and the 1 inch widths to punch and layer my sentiment.
The beautiful DSP I’ve used on all my cards is called Flowers For Every Season and it features all the new in colours. There are 24 different patterns in this 6×6 pack of DSP!
Tomorrow I will be featuring another stamp set that is retiring from the 2019 Annual Catalogue and the 2020 January to June Mini Catalogue, but in the meantime you can view all the retiring products in my online shop.
