Wisteria Christmas

2015_06_25DSCI0811 It’s the 25th of the month {already} and it is exactly 6 months til Christmas so as promised… it’s a Christmas post.  For this card, Cammie used an unconventional color scheme of wisteria wonder and silver. She randomly used Christmas snowflake stamps from different sets and embossed them in silver. She then added some frosted snowflakes and sequins to make it bling!

Put on a Party Hat

2015_06_24IMG_7393 I have been on a roll lately making cards using Stampin Up DSP as the main focus and today’s card is no different. It features the just retired from the Stampin Up occasions catalog- Birthday Bash DSP. For an added extra, I recreated the party hat using the pennant punch (retired) and added the sentiment using the die from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.  Wrapped it up by adding a piece of tangerine twist ribbon to make a fun birthday card for any age!

Sophisticated Serifs

2015_06_23IMG_7166I love to make personalized gifts for people and what is better that creating hand stamped monogrammed notecards.  For the monograms I used the fabulous Sophisticated Serifs stamp set from Stampin Up. Unfortunately the Sophisticated Serifs stamp set was just available for during the recent occasions catalog and not carried over!  Once I created the monogrammed panel, I just added  it to a coordinating layer that has been textured with different Stampin Up Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

You’re My Anchor

2015_06_22IMG_7188Continuing the posts this month by clearing out the old Stampin Up products to make room for the more fun stuff in the all new Stampin Up 2015-2016 annual catalog.  Todays card features the now retired Maritime DSP that I coupled with the Guy Greetings stamp set #137178.  This card is masculine in nature but the sentiment works for anyone in your life.

Manly Man class

2015_06_21DSCI0830 (2) It’s fathers day so I could not resist making a 2nd post today to honor all the dads in our lives.  This post is super adorable and is the packaging for Cammies June workshop featuring all masculine cards that you have seen over the past few days and the Stampin Up manly papers that were available in the Adventure Bound DSP paper stack.  As with most of Cammie’s fantastic designs, she brayered the mountains and daubered the grassy land.  She used the Stampin Up Wood You Be Mine (now retired) stamp set to stamp the lumberjack.  She then colored him in and peeked him behind a wood beam made using the Hardwood Background Stamp #133032.

What a fun way to package a masculine workshop! I plan to repurpose the packaging and remove the panel to make into a masculine card.

Happy Fathers Day Guy

2015_06_21IMG_7185 Happy Father’s Day! Today’s post is a fun play on words using the Stampin Up Guy Greetings #138828 stampset.  For the background I used the Typeset DSP#133704 to give the classic cars an even more vintage look. The sentiment is also from the Guy Greetings and his hand cut into a banner.  I added the star strip cut from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit #137547 and anchored the strips with a punched gear (retired punch) and a star.
