A World of Thanks

2015_08_02IMG_0018 Today’s post is a gorgeous CASE (copy and steal everything) from page 15 of the current Stampin Up annual catalog.  The A World of Thanks background stamp allowed Cammie to create a dazzling card front. The hearts and multilayered flower were brought to life using the Stampin Up Glimmer Paper (Dazzling Diamonds #135315 and Red #121790) and a variety of Stampin Up punches.

Aloha Origami

2015_08_02IMG_7484 Today’s post is the birthday card that a sweet customer, Sheri made for my husband’s birthday a few months ago and I have neglected to post.  So given that flowers are in full bloom now in Ohio and most of the USA I thought it was a perfect card for today.  Sheri is a loyal Stampin Up customer and a fabulous card maker and a dear friend to me and my family. The paper for the card is no longer available but was perfect to make the Hawaiian shirt that even Jimmy Buffet would love. The buttons on the shirt were none other than the Neutral Candy Dots from Stampin Up #130934.  Great job Sheri!

It’s a Garden Party

2015_08_01IMG_9986 For all our workshops we have a theme and then provide cute decorations, workshop packaging and other theme related goodies.  For my garden recent themed party I made this gorgeous flower using the new Cotton Paper Assortment #138308 and the Bouquet Bigz die #137367 from Stampin Up. Each petal of the flower was stamped using the Build a Bouquet (no longer available) stampset.  The Cotton paper is light weight and sturdy and is perfect for cutting accents with the Big shot.  I added a pipe cleaner for a stem and attached it to the bottom of a Cheez-it to go container that resembled a flower pot.  My Cheez-it loving customer loved her personal surprise at the garden party.

2015_08_01I also gave each guest a cute little flower in a paper pot and I added a garden stake cut using the adorable Handpicked Framelits #137361 that I embellished with images from the now retired Tag It stamp set including the super mini garden spade!

Shiny Bauble

2015_07_31 Today’s post is another Christmas card from Cammie that features the Christmas Bauble #138834 wood mount single stamp that is only available on the Stampin Up Clearance Rack.  The Stampin Up Clearance rack has lots of retired products and remarkably low prices so be sure to check it out.

This multi-layered shiny Christmas Bauble adds the perfect finishing touch to this no traditional Christmas card. Cammie used silver embossing powder to make each soft sky and wisteria wonder layer of the bauble shine. The bauble rests on  the Kinda Ecclectic # 135347 rays that were embossed in silver.

Joyful Tidings

2015_07_30DSCI0825

For today’s Christmas in July card, Cammie took advantage of the Stampin Up Clearance Rack to score a fabulous deasl on last years Nordic Noel DSP #135822 and the coordinating Christmas Cheer stampset. The best part of all Stampin Up products is how they work together.  The ornaments on the Nordic Noel DSP perfectly match the ornaments in the Christmas Cheer stamp set.  Each ornament is strung using a piece of stretchy gold twine and the card was finished with a sentiment from the Stampin Up Joyful Tidings stamp set that is no longer available.
