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.

Sea shell Sea shell

2013_04_20DSCI0073When I saw this card, I instantly thought of the She sells sea shells by the sea shore tongue twister.  Crazy Huh?  I think these cards that Cammie has done using the Stampin Up By the Tide  stamp set have gotten prettier each day.  Today’s card uses the Needlepoint border #129383 at the top and bottom of the card front and then colored with a chocolate chip marker. A wide calypso coral strip and then a soft suede stamped with the Netting background stamp #122655.  A large paper doily was cut from the Delicate Doilies Sizzlet #126999 from pool party cardstock and then a large  soft suede circle was stamped with coral image from the By the Tide #129120 stampset.  The circle was adorned with and embossed seashell from the By the Tide set and a couple of buttons.

Coral Reef

2013_04_19DSCI0066 By now Cammie has settled into her Jamaican digs and is sipping Red stripe beer on the beach so why not post another beachy card that Cammie made using the Stampin Up By the Tide #129120 stamp set.   The card layout is one of Cammie’s go to layouts.  Each square is embossed with the coral and then accented with a sea life item that is stamped, embossed, cut out and added to the square.  I love that Cammie added a large pearl to the 3rd square.

Tropical Aquarium

2013_04_18DSCI0061 Today’s card is absolutely stunning and with Cammie’s expert brayering and embossing techniques the aquarium looks life like.  I really don’t know how she does it but Cammie nailed it with this card!  The featured stamp set is the By the Tide #129120 from the Stampin Up spring catalog.  The card base is textured with non other than the Manhattan Flower embossing folder #114517 and she layered various oval shapes cut using the new Ovals collection framelits #129381 and finished with 2 modern label punches.

Come Sail away

2013_04_17IMG_1331For today’s card I pulled out some old product to create a fresh look for our vacation themed cards.  I finished the card with cherry cobbler bakers twine.  This layout works great to showcase the Stampin Up DSP from any collection because it is all intended to work together!
