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.

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.
When 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.
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.
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.
