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


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.

By Your Side


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.
