Lattice cross

 I recently needed sympathy cards and created a very simple and appropriate card using the medallion simply sent card as a base and added a cross cut from the Lattice Die #115958.  The cross is laying on top of a marina mist decorative label punch #120907 and adorned with leaves cut from the bird builder punch #117191 and the boho blossoms punch #119858.  The card is accented with pearl flower centers and a bow tied from the marina mist 1/8 inch taffeta ribbon #119257 and a sentiment from teeny tiny wishes #115370 on a word window punch #119857 and layered on a modern label punch #119849 to create a very nice sympathy card.

First Edition Butterfly

First of all, please excuse the blurry photo but we did not see the final image until way after the card was sent.  Cammie created this card using the pool party card base edged with the scallop border punch #119882 to reveal a piece of the wonderful First Edition DSP #121878.  The background butterfly  images from the Strength and Hope stampset #123660 were stamped in pool party ink to create a monochromatic look.  The dimensional butterflys were cut from flirtacious DSP #122360 and the Beautiful Wings embosslits die #118138 and scattered on the card base. The card was wrapped with whisper white bakers twine #124262 and Cammie added a frame embossed with the designer frames embossing folder#123130 and then cut out. Cammie then added a extra large oval punch #119859 from a scrap piece of First Edition DSP.  She finished the card by adding pearls to the beautiful butterflies.

On the day you were born

I love the sentiment on today’s post using the Happiest Birthday Wishes  hostess stamp set #122617 to create a very simple birthday card.  This card was an very vanilla card front embossed with the my favorite square lattice embossing folder #119976.  I layered a piece of Spice Cake DSP (no longer available) and a eyelet border punched strip #119853 of Spice Cake DSP. The accent piece is stamped on very vanilla and adorned with rhinestones # 119246 and layered on soft suede designer frame embossing folder #123130 that I fussy cut and punched holes to thread the very vanilla velvet ribbon (no longer available) to complete this birthday card.

Under the Big Top

When I got the IBC back in July I knew I had to have the Big Top Birthday DSP and knew I wanted to create a circus tent for the card front.

The tent was hand cut from the Big Top birthday DSP#122348 and mounted on whisper white cardstock.  The tent door is cut from a coordinating piece of Big Top birthday DSP and rolled back and tied with white ribbon to reveal the inside of the card  where I stamped the seal from the Under the Big Top stamp set #122877.  The clouds are stamped from the Up, Up and away stamp set #122757.  The tent top and bottom were separated by a piece of coordinating DSP that was punched from the scallop border punch #119882

Classic Pinwheel

Cammie stepped outside the color comfort box with today’s post.  Pastels are not a favorite color selection for Cammie but some of her customers scream for her to use more pastels in her workshops.  This was the final card in Cammie’s sweet workshop and focuses on the pinwheel stamp from the Stampin Up Sweets for the Sweet stamp set #122512.  The card front is a  pool party monchromatic look stamped with images in pool party ink. The pinwheels are stamped on whisper white cardstock using calypso coral and pool party ink.  These pinwheels are layered with a stamped and fuzzy cut coording pinwheel image fastened with a brad. The whisper white is layered on a piece of pool party and calypso coral cardstock and tied with a bow using calyso coral ruffled ribbon #122976 and a designer printed brad #122940.

Sweets for the sweet

Cammie created this birthday card as part of her Sweets workshop.  Cammie drew her inspiration from the Stampin Up Big top Birthday DSP #122348 and created her own “card candy” from the Sweets for the Sweet #122512 stampset and white grossgrain ribbon and the coordinating 1/8 inch taffeta ribbon in marina mist, daffodil delight, and real red. Cammie created a peek-a- boo hole using the postage stamp punch #122344 and put the sentiment on the inside so it peeks through. A large banner was textured using the perfect polka dot textured folder #117335  and accented the whisper white banner with orange jumbo rick-rack (not available).

First Edition Birthday

For today’s card, I drew my inspiration from the card in the Stampin Up IBC on page 120 but I don’t own the Field of Flowers set (shocking I know) so I substituted another flower that is no longer available but I wanted to showcase the wonderful First Edition DSP #121878 and the Happiest Birthday Wishes Hostess stamp set #122617. I stepped out of my comfort zone with this color combo (soft suede, cajun craze, and peach parfait). The Stampin Up DSP is always always great but this First Edition Specialty paper is double sided and lighter in weight and once the image is stamped on it it takes on a whole new look. I stamped the sentiment on soft suede and then punched it out using the curly label punch #119851 and popped it on top of the cajun craze strip textured with the perfect polka dots textured embossing folder.  Love how it turned out!
