Snapshot Packaging

2014_09_21IMG_5001 Presentation is always part of the fun when prepping for a Stampin Up workshop.  Today’s post is the packaging that Cammie is using for her Sept workshops.  All the workshop supplies are packaged inside this cute Chevron Tag a Bag Gift Bags #131370.  Cammie used a different piece of DSP and coordinating DSP for the large banner.  She used the Snapshot single stamp #133812 to create her camera accent complete with ribbon wrist strap.

Fabulous is What You are

2014_09_20IMG_4721 Today’s post is a direct copy from a Pinterest Post that lots of demonstrators have posted from the Convention Board this past summer.  I love the simplicity and think it really packs a punch for a simple and beautiful card featuring a variety of the Stampin Up floral punches.  I used the Blossom punch #125603, Petite Petal punch #133322 and the Itty Bitty Accents #133787 and a variety of Stampin Up card stock and specialty papers.  I added the sentiment from the Million and One #126377 using the Silver Encore Ink #132142.

Looks can be deceiving

2014_09_26IMG_5023 Today’s cards is one of those cards that looks simple but is really not.  Each flower is 2 punched images from the Itty Bitty Accents punch #133787 and a rhinestone center.  The touch part was getting the perfect circle for the ring of flowers. I tried everything and ended up using the plastic case that the Stampin Up embellishments come in as my guide for the flower placement.  Once the flowers were in place I lifted out the plastic case and added the sentiment from the Yippee-Skippee stamp set #131341 to complete this card.  I love how this card finished up an really think it was worth the effort.

Speaking of Yippee- Skippee, it is one of the weekly deals from Stampin Up. Be sure to check out this deal and all the other weekly deals from Stampin Up

Lucky Stars

2014_09_18IMG_5193 I thank my lucky stars that I am a Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin subscriber.  Every month I anxiously await for my Paper Pumpkin kit to arrive and I drop everything to complete the kit.  Then I usually have extra stuff from the kit left over that I combine with our Stampin Up supplies I have on hand to further extend the Paper Pumpkin kit.  Today’s card is what I did with the left over stars from my July Paper Pumpkin kit.  I just trimmed the edge of the front of a card base and randomly stamped mini stars and the sentiment then added the silver stars along the edge.  Super easy and fun to create.

In case you don’t know what paper pumkin is visit the paper pumpkin website to check it out and contact me if you want to subscribe or purchase a pre-paid subscription.  Once you are signed up you will get your own paper pumpkin kit complete with all the ink, stamps, pre-cut and measured paper and embellishments to create your sweet projects.

Tickled Pink

2014_09_17DSCI0754 Today’s card is another breathtaking beauty that Cammie made using her master brayering skills and featuring the Flamingo Lingo stamp set #134306 from the 2014-2015 Stampin Up annual catalog.  The Flamingo Lingo stamp set is this years stamp set that can make a difference.  For each Flamingo Lingo stamp set sold Stampin Up will donate $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Program.

For the card Cammie started with a piece of Coastal Cabana In color DSP Paper stack #130136 and then added a textured tag cut from the Apothecary Accents #127003 framelits. For the main panel, Cammie created brayered her gorgeous serene flamingo scene on whisper white and then added a window using the negative image of the Apothecary Accents #127003 framelits.  She added a button and a piece of 1/8 ” basic black taffeta ribbon #119261.

Something’s Fishy

2014_09_16DSCI0758 Today’s cards are the birthday cards that Cammie made for our brother’s twins birthday.  She made the pink girl version for Claire and the orange boy version for Dylan.  Cammie created the fish using punch art.  The fish body is from the large oval #119855, the tail is from the primitive heart (no longer available), the fins are from the modern label #119849 and the eyes are from the Owl Builder #118074.  Once she assembled her fish she used the white uniball Signo Gel pen #105021 and the all new Project Life Journaling pens #135304. She stamped the sentiment and then cut it out with the Word Bubbles #132968.  To create the ocean, she used tones of Blues and textured them using the woodgrain textured impressions embossing folder #127821 and then created the waves using the Large Scallop Edgelit #127019. Lastly Cammie added a Sun using a set of layered circles and sponging.2014_09_16DSCI0757 - Copy
