Baking Makes Life Sweeter

2017_06_26 I was sad that Stampin Up did not carry over the Perfect Mix stamp set in the new 2017-2018 annual catalog.  I paired the stamp set with the now retired  Succulent Garden DSP to create a retro and fun card for a baker!

Candle Jar

2017_06_25IMG_0463 It’s the 25th of June which means it is just 6 months til Christmas and its time for my monthly Christmas card post. We tend to put things we love into jars: fireflies, potpourri, buttons, fruits, and candles. Today’s card features the Jar of Love #141587 stamp set and the coordinating Every Day Jars #141490 Framelits from Stampin Up.  The candle is from the Jar of Cheer stamp set that is now retired.

Touches of Texture

2017_06_24IMG_0543

To Most of the textures and elements on today’s card post were achieved using the Touches of Textures #141934 stamp set from Stampin Up. To add even more character, Cammie added the dragonflies from the Dragonfly Dreams #142924 stampset to create this life like meadow landscape.

Upcyled Dragonfly

2017_06_23IMG_0553 Today’s card is a fabulous card with a textured background using a piece of a flap on a Stampin Up shipping box.  Cammie added wisps of thin strips of grass and the dragonfly stamped using the Dragonfly Dreams #142924 stamp set and coordinating Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits #142749 to create this stunning card.

Simply Sweet

2017_06_22IMG_2078 I received this sweet card as a thank you from my friend and customer Sheri.  The card is so simple but oh so delicate with all the elements to create a layered look without all the fuss and minimal stamping is involved. Sheri pulled various Stampin Up products from her stash and created a clean look.

Here is another breathtaking card Cammie made using her masterful brayering skills for creating fabulous landscapes.  The card features the High Tide #143006 stamp set from Stampin Up and was perfect to accent Cammie’s sunrise on the beach.

Flourishing Peas in a Pod

2017_06_20IMG_0449 The Flourishing Phrases #141531 stamp set from Stampin Up is the key to today’s card.  Cammie used a decorative mask to create the fun paisley background.  The main panel was brayered and then Cammie embossed the flourish with gold embossing powder and then added punched leaves and a series of basic pearls to make the pearls. The delicate details on this card are something else.
