Peaceful Night

2016_09_23img_0153

Today’s post is a real beauty and believe it or not Cammie used the retired Stampin Up Joyful Season stamp set to create this beautiful all occasions card.  The Joyful Season stamp set is a Christmas stamp set that Cammie chose to use in a non traditional way.

The hills are alive

2016_09_22img_0206When I saw this beautiful card that Cammie created I immediatly thought of the Alps and broke out in soung singing tunes from the Sound of Music.  To create this scence Cammie used the In the Meadow #140751 stamp set to bring the tranquility of the great outdoors and added color to make this card come to life with her brayering and sponging skills.

Bling it on

2016_09_21img_1441

Bling, sparkle, and shine—the July 2016 What a Gem kit was filled with fancy fun! It included eight pretty and polished treat boxes in two sizes that you can personalize with gem-toned tassels and mini cards but what I really loved was the stamp set that came with the What a Gem kit.  I went to town randomly stamping the gems on whisper white cardstock.  I added a half of a silver metallic foil doily the sentiment and basic rhinestone bling to create this seriously cute card.  Is there ever too much bling?

Fiesta dress

2016_09_20img_0357

Today’s post is a fancy party dress that Cammie made using the now retired Stampin Up Dress Up Framelit for the dress bodice.  For the skirt portion she used the Stampin Up Festive Birthday DSP #141630 from a folded circle punch and the slip is a  doily. The dress was added to a coordinating patterned background from the Festive Birthday DSP. The party banners were cut from the Fiesta Time Framelits #141475 and the sentiment was stamped from the Birthday Fiesta #141500 stamp set. Ole!

Oh Crap

2016_09_16img_0851

Today’s post features the Just Stinkin Cute stamp set from the Unity Stamp company.  I usually try and keep my stamps to Stampin Up but when I saw this one I knew I had to have it!  I made the card for my son to send intentionally late to my father in law for his birthday.  My son and my father in law have a long lasting joke about toilet paper so the card was perfect.  If you look closely, you will see that I stamped the toilet paper image on an actual piece of toilet paper and then cut it out.

Duo Marquee Messages

For today’s post I created a female and a masculine version of this birthday card that features 2 of my favorite products in the 2016-2017 Stampin Up annual catalog- Playful Palette DSP #141657 paper stack and the Marquee Messages #141727 stamp set.  For each card, I stamped the marquee 3 times on different colors of cardstock and then hand cut out the pieces and then put them back on top of the original image stamped on whisper white.  For the female version, I added dots of the fine tip liquid glue to each bubble on the arrow.

Washi Thanks

2016_09_17img_1435

Today’s post is a sweet thank you I received from my friend Sheri.  I love the grid that she created with her Stampin Up Washi Tape.  She added a punched flower with a cute bright enamel shape #141680 for the flower center.  She added faux stitching with a coordinating Stampin Write marker and the sentiment to complete the card.
