Snowman Tea light

2015_01_23snowmantealighjt Today I am posting a super cute and quick gift idea using the battery operated tealight and Stampin Up punches for the hat.  The eyes and mouth are pearls colored in black using a Stampin Up Blendability marker.

Rootin Tootin Day

2015_01_22DSCI0797 Cammie continues to get her moneys worth from the Stampin Up Yee-Haw polymer stamp set #138107.  She picked a very girly color scheme and went to town using different images from the western themed Yee-Haw stamp set.  To add texture she hand cut the lasso and the pick cowgirl hat and randomly added silver foil punched stars.  Anyone receiving this card will definitely have a Rootin’ Tootin’ day!

Arizona Sunset

2015_01_21DSCI0796-01 I have always been in awe of the Saguaro cactus. Known for its tall, branching shape, the saguaro  is a true icon of the Arizona desert.  We will be vacationing in AZ soon and I can’t wait to see the “cactus with arms”. So when I received this card from Cammie I was over the moon with all it’s glory.  Cammie used the direct to paper method to create the Arizona landscape and the saguaro cacti were stamped using the Stampin Up Yee-Haw #138107  stamp set.

2015_01_20DSCI0777 When the weather is so cold so Cammie warmed up with a heat gun and embossed the Stampin Up Ornamental Pines #135107 (now retired) stampset. The Brr sentiment is from the Snowflakes Card Thinlits die #135855 and aligned along a strip of All is Calm Washi tape#135844 bordered with a pieces of 1/8 inch silver ribbon #132137.

Legendary Titanic

2015_01_19DSCI0756This card is all about the shaving cream technique that uses Stampin Up re-inkers and shaving cream to create the ocean waves. The miniature Titanic was stamped from the Stampin Up Traveler #134513 stampset and then hand cut out and placed on the waves.  The sun was stamped using the Kinda Eclectic #135350 stampset to create this all purpose and mostly masculine card.
