What's...Cheer...Let's Catch...UP!!

I received the Simon Says Stamp Mod Arrow Border and thought it needed a "directional" sentiment.  I found a Paper Smooches sentiment set that had not just the standard "What's Up"...but TWO MORE UP sentiments!!  SO here are my THREE UP cards...
I die cut the border die in a bunch of different colored polka dotted patterned papers and used just a single UP arrow for the first card.  I layered 3 deep BELOW the card panel for depth. 

The second one I tried to use "Cheery" colors...colors in the warm family and covered  ALL the UP arrows with the patterned polka dots,  the arrows are layered 3 deep. NOTE: I embossed the arrow die onto the card so placement was a breeze...placement made easy:)!!

The third one, I again used 3 layer deep arrows, and covered with the polka dotted papers and faced all my arrow in the "UP" position with the sentiment at the bottom.  Framed in black and used a dark gray card.  FUN!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa


  1. Love your UP beat cards!

  2. You make me want to get that die! So creative, each one, and a great way to utilize them with those sentiments. Great idea to emboss the card for placement.

  3. Three clever/amazing cards and beautiful colors too!

  4. Now how did I miss this post I love all the arrows and colors Lisa, makes me happy.

  5. Can you tell me what company makes the polka-dot patterned paper you used?

  6. The polka dotted paper was from a Stampin Up 12 x 12 pack of patterned papers:Designer Series Paper Patterns Stack- Bright collection(I think it was called brights...I used the cover for chipboard...oops)'s a link I found on ebay:
    Hope this helps...Hugs!! Lisa
