Good bye Natures nest

Today’s card is a a sad day for Cammie because her beloved go to masuline set will be retiring as of tomorrow.  This card is a CASE from page 122 of the soon to be gone 2011-2012 Stampin Up IBC. The backgroun sunflower stamp #123606 is stamped with more mustard ink on more mustard cardstock.  A strip of elegant eggplant is punched using the scallop trim border #118402 and then a piece of 1/4 old olive grossgrain ribbon is stapled to the border trim before adhering it to the mustard base.  Cammie embossed the frame using the oval embossing folder from the designer frames #123130 and cut it out.  She used the extra large oval punch #119859 to punch a piece of First Edition DSP #121878 and free hand cut the cute banner.  The dragonfly is  stamped from the soon to retired Natures Nest #113826, embossed, and brayed tempting turquoise to create the realistic looking dragon fly

Time is running out to get anything from the current Stampin Up IBC, hurry up and get your 1/4″ grossgrain ribbon  and all other going going gone items because they will be gone tomorow and will not be carried over to the new catalog.

MDS Congrats

 Today’s post features a hybrid card using the MDS card front that I designed and then uploaded to staples to print.  Turned out great.  Then I customized each card to match the school colors.  Love how it turned out but cannot believe how many graduations we have this year.  Cha Ching.

If you are interested in custom graduation cards contact me.

Hope for the Cure

Cammie made these cards for her shop and for a charity event in Tulsa.  The design is simple but the  output made a huge impact for breast cancer awareness month.  The cards have the same layout using the vintage wallpaper texture plate #120175 and the retiring simple alphabet #115960.  The “O” is retiring ribbon of hope #115552 stamp or a piece of mambo ribbon made into the ribbon of hope.

Butterflies Galore

 Today’s post is a very popular card at Cammie’s card shop in Tulsa. This card features items that will be carried over into the new Stampin Up catalog and ones that will be retiring in a few short days. The card base is Island indigo (carried over), DSP is First Edition #121878 (carried over).  The scallop circle punch #119854 coordinates with the stamped image from the soon to be retired Hostess stamp set, precious butterflies, #122517.  The butterflies are stamped from the Kindness Matters #122902 set and then cut out ans randomly popped in the center of each circle.

Only 4 more days to place your order from the going going gone 2011-2012 IBC and could earn the hostess set and hostess dollars.

Happy Birthday Baby sister

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Happy Birthday Baby sister, Blair or should I say Sponge Bob Blair Pants?  Today we celebrate Blair’s birthday and Cammie and I conspired to each make her a punch art card (we made others for her too).  Cammie chose Hello Kitty  because as a young girl Blair loved Kitty and Cammie spoiled Blair by using her tip money to buy Blair all the Hello Kitty stuff.  I chose Sponge Bob frankly because I saw it on a fellow blog and knew that I would recreate it since Blair’s corpsman call her Sponge Bob Blair pants.  It is a term of endearment because some say she has a square bottom.

Cammie and I made Blair other cards too and they will be posted  another day.
