You’re on My Mind




Today’s card is absolutely stunning and is perfect to fit inside a standard business envelope.  The card features the now retired Stampin Up Wonderland stamp set.  The beautiful brayerd landscape is one of Cammie’s specialties and the sentiment is from the main Stampin Up catalog and is called That Thing You Did #138730.  This card is perfect for letting someone know you’re thinking of them on a special day or just any day.

Batman to the Rescue


Most little boys and some girls love super heroes and Batman is a true classic.  For today’s post, Cammie needed a batman themed birthday card for her husband’s 2 year old grandbaby.  No stamping involved! She created the classic batman icon using the Stampin Up Ovals Collection Framelits Dies #129381.  She then used the Word Window punch #119857 to carve out the batman.  The emblem was mounted on the Zig Zag Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #133738.

Snow days and snowmen


Today I decided to post a cheerful snowy day card for all our friends and family on the east coast and midatlantic are who are still buried beneath record amounts of snow. Although this card was one of Cammie’s Christmas cards that I never got around to posting I thought it was cute enough to post for a snowy Jan.  Just remove the sentiment and it works.  This card features the now retired Snowy Day Stampin Up stamp set.  For the snowmans arms, Cammie hand drew the branch and then added the birds punched from the Stampin Up Tree Builder Punch #138295. Cammie finished the card by hand tearing a strip of whisper white cardstock to make snow mounds.

You mean the world to me


I am posting another Going Global card today because not only do I love all the products in the Stampin Up Going Global products from the Stampin Up Occasions catalog.  I started with a Delightful Dijon card base and then added a basic back cardstock layer.  I textured the World Traveler Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #13829 and the  lightly ran Sahara Sand ink over the embossed image to distress it.  I then added strips of the awesome Going Places #140581 Designer Series Paper Stack. I punched a circle from the Free Perfectly Artistic DSP #141021 in the Stampin Up Sale-A-Bration catalog. I added the hand cut banner and the sentiment from the Going Global #140745 and wrapped some of the all new two tone Bakers Twine #140555 and the textured piece. .

Be sure take advantage of the annual Stampin Up Sale- a- bration campaign where you earn free products for each $50 spent on merchandise you can earn free products from the Stampin Up Sale-a-bration catalog.

Worldly Greetings

2016_01_26I am not going to lie I love the entire suite of Going Global products in the Stampin Up Occasions catalog.  I am warning you that I bought it all and have many cards ready to post using the products.  I promise I will spread them out over the next couple of months because I don’t want you to get bored with them.  Today’s card is simple, it features the Stampin Up World Traveler Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #138289 as the background.  I then stamped the globe image and the sentiment from the Going Global #140745 and add punched it using the 2″ Circle punch.  I added it to a banner and popped it with dimensional dots to create a fantastic masculine or thank you card. Stay tuned for more cards using these fun products.

I decided to continue the monthly Christmas card postings on the 25th of each month in 2016.  Today’s Christmas post is a simple punch art Santa hat (Oval, Word window, scallop oval and 1/2 circle punches) and the Merry Everything #135071 stampset.  I accented the card with random basic rhinestones.

Butterfly gatefold


I am a big fan of fun fold cards and the gatefold with the “belly band” is one of my favorite styles to make.  I used the now retired Back to Black DSP from Stampin Up. I added a beautiful layered embellishment to the belly band featuring the Stampin Up Watercolor Wings #139424 Photopolymer stamp set and the coordinating Bold Butterly Framelits #138135.  The butterfly rests on a black circle matted by a melon mambo scallop circle.  The sentiment is from the Watercolor Wings and stamped in black on a hand cut banner.
