Summer of Cards and Pineapple Aloha!

Here are a few of my creations that I made this summer...

I'm going to start with my newest first... today's chef d'oeuvre- my pineapples that I made from the Stampin' Up! Pine Cone and Pine needles thinlit dies (Pretty Pines). I love it!

Pine Cone Pineapples- Aloha!
SU! DSP: Botanical Blooms, SU! Thinlit set: Pretty Pines, Little B die: "celebrate", SU! embossing folder: Sparkle

Raccoon Party!

These little dudes come from Art Impressions. The Window is SU!. And the box I made using the SU! Hardwood stamp.

I just love how you can modify this set to make it work... I was inspired by images I found online to cut the chin of the dog and the basket to nestle her in there so nicely. And I love how the cat and pillows pop so well. The branches came from SU! Jar of Love and the rest is from SU! Sitting Here 

I'd like to be under the sea.... 
Combined the wonderful die cuts from SU! Thinlits: Swirling Scribbles and the darling images from SU! You're Sublime

 Primary Colors Congrats
Such a simple and vibrant card. SU! Thinlits: Sunshine Wishes, SU! Embossing Folder: Sparkle. Inside it says "So happy for you" and has stamped flower from "Sunshine Sayings"

Kitties for Brenda... 
These little cats are so fun... and perfect for my cat-lover friend, Brenda! They come from the SU! Pretty Kitty set. 

Llama, Llama, Llama
I love the underbite of a llama... and I love this stamp set and thinlit dies! (SU! Birthday Fiesta)

And this is a song I always think of when I think of llamas.... I encourage you to go check it out! 
Llama Llama Duck

Goldfish and Flowers Hello
From the SU! Jars of Love set...I love the matching framelits!!! Makes it so easy to create 3D cards!

Lightening Bugs Hello
Also from the SU! Jars of Love set. I grew up with Lightning Bugs in the back yard every summer. Sad they don't live out here on the California coast.

Rainy Day Friends
The umbrella, raindrops, and hearts are from SU! Weather together (and matching thinlit Die set). The sun rays behind the cloud is from SU! Kinda Eclectic. The words are from retired SU! set called See You Later. 

Tuscan Wishes
I love this new SU! set- the corkscrew is so cool. No, there aren't any thinlits for this... so lots of fussy cutting... but worth it. The musical notes paper is retired SU! DSP Natural Composition. "Thinking of You" is from SU! Wetlands.

Bella dog and friend
SU! Bella & Friends has such cute images. The flower and the trim are from the SU! Flourish Thinlits set. 

Love Birds
SU! Best Birds (with thinlits!)

A Basic Hello
SU! Botanical Blooms and thinlits- nice basic card

Fairy Door and Fairy House
I saw some Fairy Doors while in Ireland at a gift shop and was inspired to make one with the new SU! Fairy Celebration stamp set. The lovely green trim and vines are from the SU! Flourishes thinlits die set. 

Inside the fairy door... 
"All it takes is love, trust, and a little bit of fairy dust"

Also, I'd like to send a shout out to Cecile Ortiz, a French blogger and Stampin Up! demonstrator who has been inspiring me a lot these last few months... go check out her stuff! (and if you can't read French- use Google Translate)... Look at her amazing palm tree and beach Santa... Her palm tree is made from the SU! Pretty Pines dies... just great... That's my next project!


Mahalo for looking and Aloha everyone!
