Happy I do day

2014_06_28IMG_3864 Happy wedding day to my niece, Melinda and her husband Karl.  To  honor the bride and I groom, I made this card.  I cut three rectangles and textured them with the Elegant Lines (no longer available) embossing folder.  I crimped a piece of cardstock to separate the cake layers and added a few flowers complete with basic pearls.  The sentiment is from a now retired stamp set.

Cheers to Mr an Mrs Karl Kaiser!

2014_06_26CASE Cathy 5.18.2014 i Today’s post is a CASE (Copy and Steal Everything) that a customer Yvonne Crooks from Broken Arrow OK did when she saw my post from a month or so ago.  I was flattered that she used my card as inspiration to make 2 cards.  It’s days like this that make all my blog work pay off.   I love it that someone took the time to use my card as inspiration.  Thanks Yvonne.

Happy Day

2014_06_25IMG_0911 Today’s card is one that I have used for happy occasions and also for not so happy times just but swapping out the sentiment.  The card base is stamped with the Hardwood background stamp #133035 from the Stampin Up annual catalog. I then used the Hexagon Hive #132965 to create a trellis.  I stamped and hand cut the flower from the now retired Happy Watercolor stampset and added the little leaves from the Little Leaves sizzlet (now retired).  I added a piece of crushed curry Chevron ribbon #130019.  The sentiment is stamped from the Happy Day (now retired) stampset and then cut out with the Apothecary Accents #127003 label and finished with 2 basic rhinestones.

Coffee anyone?

2014_06_24DSCI0422 Today’s card is a real pick me up kind of card.  Cammie created#131269  a coffee stain background using a Starbucks cup and a few drops of reinkers to make realistic stains.  She added the 2 strips of Epic Day #131269 Washi Tape.  She created a Tag using the Angled Tag Topper #133323.  She stamped the coffee cup with the Perfect Blend #131392 stamp set in the Stampin Up annual catalog. She stamped the coffee cup wrap was stamped on a scrap piece of DSP and then hand cut the wrapper and added neutrals candy dots #130934.  The sentiment was also from the Perfect Blend stampset.

Lots of Layering

2014_06_23Texture Galore & SAB card kit 001-White Wedding1 Lots of Layering makes a crafter happy especially when it is white on white!  Cammie rocked this wedding card with so many layers and so much texturing that I don’t know where to begin.  So I am not going to go into the details but this gorgeous wedding card features the now retired Mr & Mrs stampset and several of the flower punches (Blossom #125603, Pansy#130698, Petite Petals #133322 & Boho Blossoms #119858) still available in the current Stampin Up catalog.  The flowers were textured and layered to create a beautiful bouquet for the perfect wedding card.

Fancy Fold Thank You

2014_06_22IMG_0887 2014_06_22IMG_0888 Today’s card is a fun fold card that I made up for a workshop and then had them on hand so I could convert them from Thank Yous to Sympathy cards just my swapping out the sentiment.  I always need sympathy cards in a hurry and never have time to make them up so I adopted the method of making up pretty cards and leaving sentiments off so I can have sympathy cards on demand.  Seems to work for me.

For today’s card it has a unique fold that has a semi circle to reveal the  beautiful stamped image from the Gifts of Kindness #130444 stampset (available in the current Stampin Up catalog). I added the layered decorative label #120907 with the sentiment, also from the Gifts of Kindness stampset.

Gee Thanks

2014_06_21_pg163in color CASE thanks 002All  Stampin Up publications are full of fantastic ideas and samples just waiting to be copied or used as inspiration. Today’s card is a CASE (Copy and Steal Everything) card from pg 163 of the current Stampin Up annual catalog.  Cammie just adjusted the colors of the Mosaic Madness #130249 stamped pieces from pool party to the new in color, Lost Lagoon.  The whisper white background was embossed with the Modern Mosaic textured folder #129984.  She then did some watercoloring with the Stampin Up aqua painters and Lost Lagoon ink.  The stamped mosaic pieces were punched using the coordinating Mosaic Punch #131267. She then used the fabulous Beautiful Wings embosslit folder3118138  to make the butterflies. Cammie used Stazon ink to stamp the sentiment from the Really Good Greetings #130333 stampset directly onto whisper white satin ribbon.
