In the Meadow

2016_04_28IMG_0200

For today’s card, Cammie brought the tranquility of the great outdoors  for this card featuring the Stampin Up In the Meadow # 140751 stamp set.  She started out by texturing the base layer with the now retired Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. She then used the retired Decorative Labels Framelits to create a hole and then added her brayered meadow scene beneath to add a different type of view to this beautiful card.

Always Time For Tea

2016_04_27IMG_0196

Cammie has done a fantastic job combining multiple Stampin Up products to create this nice whimsical card featuring the Stampin Up A Nice Cuppa #140683 photopolymer stamp set.  She stamped the stacked tea cups and then hand cut out the image and popped it onto  a textured Brick Wall #138288 sponged with an oval to highlight the cups even more.  She added the mini tea bag for detail using the A Nice Cuppa and cut it out with the coordinating Cups & Kettle Framelits #140624.  For even more detail Cammie added the focal panel to a rose red layer that was stamped using the retired Stampin Up Woodgrain background stamps.  She anchored the panel using 2 partial Decorative Label punch pieces with Candy Dots from the subtle collection.

Below is a similar card using the same layout but instead of stamping the stacked cups, Cammie used the Cups & Kettle Framelits to cut the cups from the Stampin Up Love Blossoms DSP paper stack #140548.

Awesome Thoughts

Cammie started this card out by distressing the background using Stampin Up’s Gorgeous Grunge #130514 stamp set and the masking technique to create the moon.  She added the dragon fly from the Awesomely Artistic #138694 stampset.  The gigantic flower is from the Stampin Up Hostess set- Best Thoughts #139234.  To make the flower pop, Cammie stamped, hand cut and popped the floral image on the card front.to create  an eclectic mix of realistic images and textured graphics.

Today’s post is a fantastic Christmas card (It is the 25th of the month after all!)   Cammie used her fabulous brayering skills and the now retired Stampin Up Wonderland stamp set to create this beauty.  The main panel is matted on silver foil paper and then on to the whisper white layer that has been textured using the Stampin Up Softly Falling Textured Impressions Folder #139672.

Irie

2016_04_24IMG_0182

This beautiful card is Cammie’s way to show twhat it is like to be at total peace with your current state of being. Irie (I-rie \I ‘ -ree) is the word in Jamaican Patois that means, “alright”. The term can be used to mean 1: powerful and pleasing; 2: excellent, highest; n 3: the state of feeling great. It is commonly used by members of the Rastafari movement (see Iyaric).

This card showcases Cammie’s master brayering skills and using an unknown and retired Stampin Up stampset.

Just Beachy

One of Cammie’s happiest places on earth is to be on a beach.  She loves to spend her vacations in Jamaica so her beach scenes are naturally realistic. For this card she created it 3 ways just by changing out the sentiment or ribbon to make it look different.  She created the beach scene and added the birds from the Wetlands #126695.  She added the big starfish from the Stampin Up Picture Perfect #140520 stamp set and hand cut it out  and placed it on the beach.

Today’s post is a gorgeous nature scene that Cammie created using the Stampin Up Wonderland (retired) stampset.  After masterfully creating the landscape scene she cut it into equal segments and matted them on Black cardstock to create added interest.

Crafters Love to Embellish

2016_04_21IMG_0700.JPG

Happy birthday to my BIG sister and my Stampin Up upline, Cammie.  When I saw the Love you Sew#140640 stamp set in the Stampin Up Occasions catalog I knew that I was going to use it to make Cammie’s birthday card and for some other crafty friends.  For the card, I used most of the images to create 6 one inch squares that I then matted on bright postage stamp punched pieces.  I then made a larger panel and added the sentiment and various embellishments to complete this fun card with a great play on words.
