Silver Setting

2013_04_28DSCI0120 Today’s post is a thank you card that Cammie made for a friend.  The silver setting stamp #127391 from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  The silverware look so real when embossed in silver, Cammie says that they look great in gold too.  Wow this is a stamp that I would have never thought of ordering but I like it and think it could be fun to use as an invite to dinner.  As a matter of fact, I made a request to my sister to emboss me some so I can play.  That is what is fun about being sister/ demos we share what we love!

Blue Ribbon Ride

2013_04_13DSCI0135Today’s post is another pairing of the Feeling Sentimental free stampset from the Stampin Up Sale-abration and the World Spectacular DSP.  The layout is simple but makes a great masculine birthday card.  Stampin Up makes it simple when using their products.  Everything coordinates together and takes the guess work out of the equation.

Ticket to Ride

2013_04_14DSCI0134 Welcome back to Cammie.  Hopefully she has rested up and is ready to get back to stamping. Today’s card is one that Cammie made using the Feeling Sentimental stamp set that Cammie earned during Sale-a-bration.  Cammie paired the ferris wheel with the World Spectacular DSP #126897.  If you look closely, Cammie colored each seat of the ferris wheel to coordinate with the DSP.  The cherry cobbler and daffodil seam binding provide a nice accent to finish this card.

Serene Silhouettes

2013_04_24DSCI0114 This card features another inking technique called direct to paper.  The yellow sky was created simply by taking a daffodil delight ink pad as swiping it directly on the white cardstock.  The lake was masked off and then brayered with  shade of blue inks.  the greenery was created using the daubering and sponging techniques.  Finally the floral image from the Serene Silhouettes stampset #127324 was embossed in black  and then the panel was matted on black and applied to the pool party base and squares.

Welcome to my Secret Garden

2013_04_21DSCI0058Since Cammie is still on her tropical vacation for a few more days we are continuing with the tropical/ beachy posts until her return.  Today’s card  is one that Cammie did that is packed full with techniques and product mostly from the Stampin Up spring catalog. The background of this card uses the Oh hello #130733 stampset and bleach on river rock cardstock.  Then the Mambo frame was stamped using the mambo ink and the Oh Hello stamp set.  The center was cut out using the oval framelits #129381 and the flowers were embossed on watercolor cardstock in black powder using the Secret Garden Stampset #129144, then the flowers were colored with blender pens and mambo, tangerine tango and pumpkin pie inks.  The flowers were cut out using the  Secret Garden coordinating framelits #129372. The card was finished with a piece of ruffled ribbon in lucky limeade.

Cammie made sympathy cards using this design but she also made birthday cards by swapping out the sentiment.

Warm Winter Wishes

2013_04_25DSCI0819 (1)Can you believe it is the 25th of the month already?  That means its time for a Christmas card posting.  Black and White {or vanilla} is one of those things that works for all occasions and this Christmas card is no exception.  The design is simple in nature and features the Holiday Frame textured embossing folder #127820 paired with a piece of First Edition DSP #121878.  A Black boot from the Bootiful Occasions stampset #126597 from the Stampin Up annual catalog was embossed in White and popped on the card.  The card was finished with the appropriate sentiment from the Bootiful Occasions stampset.

Final By The Tide

2013_04_27DSCI0078 Woo hoo. today is bittersweet, it is the last card {for awhile} that Cammie made using the Stampin Up By the Tide #129120 stampset from the spring catalog.  Over the past several days Cammie has used the heck out of this stampset and made cards that all look different but the same basic stampset was used.  So if you missed the previous posts, take time to go back and browse thru the older posts or use the search feature and key on By the Tide.

Giddy Up Sea horse

2013_04_26DSCI0085 I know by know you might be getting tired of the By the Tide #129120 stampset but Cammie is definitely driving home the benefit of purchasing a stamp set, using it and and making them all look different.

The Lobster is loose

2013_04_23DSCI0075 Today Cammie’s By the Tide card features the lobster image.  I love lobster so I think that is why I like this card so much.  The layout is simple and a banner always seems to dress up a layout. The added bonus on this card is the embossed seashells cut out and popped in the corner.

Happy Birthday Cammie

2013_04_22DSCI0074 Since Cammie is still on vacation and its her birthday so why not post a card that she made (gives me time to make her card and send while she is gone). Cammie continued to use the By the Tide #129120 stamp sent form the Stampin Up spring catalog to create this very nautical card.  She stamped random images  on the panel and added a rectangle of Baja Breeze (soon to be retired) and embossed it with the Fancy Fan folder #127751 and added a piece of twill ribbon and a designer builder brad #129329 with an anchor.  The sentiment is from the Feels Good #129684 stampset.  I must say that Cammie has gotten a lot of use from the By the Tide stampset.
