Good Things

2016_01_21IMG_9101

Today’s card is a multi layered card featuring the Stampin Up You’ve Got This #139575 stamp set. This stamp set is perfect for sending your support and showing that you care. .

For the background of the card base I used the textured image from the set.  I added ribbon, washi tape and a piece of a paper doily before adding the stamped, colored and hand cut out large flower from the You’ve got this set and then I wrapped the layer with bakers twine. This card is sure to lift and encourage friends and family and overall making their day a little brighter.

Clearance Rack is Golden

2016_01_20IMG_7884

One of the great things that Stampin Up offers is products that are available on their Clearance Rack.  For today’s card, I used the Gold Soiree Specialty DSP #133697 from the Stampin Up Clearance Rack.  For the focal point I added Definitely Dahlia #139911 and a sentiment for a sympathy card to create a beautiful card.  The best part is that even the clearance items count towards earning free products during the Stampin Up annual SAB campaign.

Out with the Old

2016_01_18DSCI0822

January is a month when we like to spend time clearing out and organizing our lives.  The same holds true with card making.  Cammie was clearing up her workspace and had left over DSP from a retired paper stack so she hand cut banners from all the coordinating papers and then made a tag from the Stampin Up Ornate Tag Topper punch.  She added the images and the sentiment from the Lovely Amzaing  You photopolyer #140594 stamp set.

Chosen Path

2016_01_17IMG_0145

Today’s post is all about the beauty of brayering and inks to create a beautiful scene.  For the sentiment, Cammie used the now retired Adventure Awaits stamp set from Stampin Up to complement her card.

Warm Wishes

As far as winters go, this one has been more mild than normal and not sick of the white stuff yet but I would prefer a mild snow free winter.  Cammie made this card for one of her Christmas cards but I think it is perfect for a winter blues pick me up card.

As with most of Cammie’s cards she brayered the background and added the tree scape using the now retired Stampin Up Wonderland stamp set.  For the melting snowman Cammie used the Sprinkles of Life Stamp set #139971 and the coordinating Tree Builder punch #138295 from Stampin Up.  The accents for the snowman came from the retired Snow Days stamp set.

Sunburst Surprise

2016_01_15IMG_0148

Today’s post is a creative tye dye sunburst featuring the all new Stampin Up Sunburst Thinlits #140617.  To create the tye dye effect, Cammie used wadded up saran wrap and reinkers to daub the cut piece.  She added center circle for the sentiment to complete this fun look.

Pinterest Snowman

2016_01_14IMG_9451

I am not sure who the original designer of this card is because I have seen it all over Pinterest and on Stampin Up sites mostly as a Christmas card so I decided to make it into my Christmas and Winter Thank You cards.

The background DSP -Perfectly Artistic is free with a qualifying $50 order during  the Stampin Up annual Sale- A- Bration. Check out the other items available in the Stampin Up Sale -A-Bration catalog. The snowman is a simple punch art design using various Stampin Up punches.  The sentiment is from the Hello You Framelits #137363 and the Bitty Banner is handwritten to at a whimsical look.

A Cardinal A day

2016_01_13IMG_0085

No matter how brayered Cards Cammie does and no matter how many cardinal cards she does they never get old and I love to send them in the winter.  There is not too much I love about the winters in Ohio but there is nothing like looking outside and seeing a tree full of beautiful red cardinals.  So it is fitting that Cammie used her now retired Stampin Up Joyful season to make a beautiful winter card.

Serene Fox

2016_01_11IMG_0108

Today’s post is a fantastic all occasions card that features the Stampin Up Wilderness Awaits stamp set # 138962. It doesn’t matter if you live in the mountains or in the heart of metropolis. You can invite a little bit of the wilderness anywhere. These realistic images are especially suited for masculine projects and Cammie paired the sleeping fox with the now retired but coming back soon Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
