Just when Cammie thought she was done with making cards for the graduation season, she was called upon to make a couple more cards for a special graduation. I think this card is a true wowzer because it looks great and is super simple to make. The hardest part is making the super cute tassle. All you need is cardstock, the Bigshot and the Stampin Up Perfect Pennants Bigz L die #123126 to create the realistic gown. Imagine using the school colors of the graduate to personalize it even more. I am definately going to bookmark this card for next years grads.

Cammie and I both get excited when we get happy mail in our mailboxes. It is truly happy when the happy mail involves money and uses all Stampin Up products! Today’s post is just that and was from our dear friend and customer, Sheri Foos. Sheri sent this cute money clip to Cammie for her July order. OMG it is so simple and cute and very adaptable to other holidays and events where money is exchanged. Great job Sheri!
I created this card awhile ago and never got around to posting it and the everday enchantment paper is no longer available but the card layout is always appropriate. You can just switch the paper and poof you have the same layout with a new look. I used all 12 designs that come in all Stampin Up DSP packs and punched them using the postage stamp punch #122344 and created the card front. I then added various elements on the squares to complete the look. Love this layout and plan to use it again,
Today’s card is a protoype that Cammie sent me for her “Raining Flowers” workshop. We both received the Raining Flowers stamp set #122767 at the 2011 Stampin Up convention. A year has almost passed us by and neither of us have used the set and heck mine was not mounted until last week! Cammie created this card and many more fabulous ones to come using the raining flowers stamp set.
Cammie is famous for creating something wonderful out of ordinary objects and today’s post is no exception to that. She took an ordinary composition book and dressed it up using DSO from StampinUp to create our Bright Ideas journals complete with ribbon and charm bookmarks. The light bulb was created using various Stampin Up punches. I absolutley love my journal.
The Stampin Up fabric is a must have for any crafter. I don’t sew and I covet the fabric and am afraid to cut into it. Cammie on the other hand is not afraid to use it and she recently challenged me to get out of my comfort zone and use the fabric. So I pulled out my flirtacious fabric #122335 because I had backup…. just in case I messed up and I used fabric on a card to created a flower and even stitched the stem using the lucky limeade bakers twine #125572. I liked how it turned out so much that I used this card in my card cafe!
I will be the first to admit that I love to stamp but sometimes I get lazy and don’t want to find the right stamp and ink so it is just easier to do a no stamp card. Love it especially when I can use up old scraps and create a super cute card. For this card I featured the Stampin Up Blossom punch #125603 to punch a peek a boo window in the top layer to reveal the pretty DSP beneath it. I used the punched image as an embellishment and voila a quick and easy card is made.
One of my customers and very deat friends started a new hobby- quilting so to offer her encouragement I wanted to send her a “quilted card”. This card was super fun to make and uses the Lattice Bigz Die #115958. I cut several lattices from various pieces of DSP and then one in very vanilla. I then pieced the quilt together by placing lattice pieces under the vanilla lattice. I then mounted that on a coordinating piece of DSO and ran the whole piece thru the Big Shot using square lattice textured embossing folder to create the quilted look. The best part about this card is the expression I stamped on the inside using a non- SU stamp set (Sorry Shelli). It says “Glad you are in my block of friends”. I am so proud of my friend because she recently completed her first quilt. Someday, I too want to take up quilting but not until I retire from my day job!
This card is like a match made in heaven. Apothecary Art Stamp#125527 meet Labels Framelit #125598, Labels Framelit meet Apothecary stamp. A perfect match. I also combined the Adorning accents folders #125601 and adorning accents edgelits #125595 to create a beautiful edge on this card. I added a paper ribbon banner and embellished with pleated satin ribbon and Victoria crocheted trim #118481, bakers twine#125573 a rosette and various sizes of pearls#119247 to create this sympathy card.
