Cinderella Pumpkin

Today’s post is a result of both Cammie and I blogging and seeing what other creative people are doing with Stampin Up products.  I must admit when I saw this pumpkin I immediately thought it was pretty enough to be Cinderella’s pumpkin. Essentially the cards are the same (Cammie’s is on the left and mine is on the right).

We started out by texturing the background with the Woodland Texture Impressions Embossing Folder #139673 and then stamped the leaf image from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set (retired).  For the gorgeous pumpkin we used the Beautiful Branches Thinlits.  Cammie added a sentiment from the Suite Seasons #142206 in the hand cut frame from the Christmas Pines stamp set #141851.

Forever in Blue Jeans


I love denim so I decided to try my hand at making a pair of blue jeans by randomly stamping the hatched image from the You’ve Got This  #139572 background stamp in dapper denim ink onto marina mist cardstock. For the belt loops I punched Classic Label #141491 and the belt was textured using the Woodgrain #127821 Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  For the pocket I stamped the image from the Badges and Banners #141605 stamp set and punched it out with the coordinating Best Badge punch #140633. The sentiment is also from the Badges and Banners stamp set and punched with the Duet Banner punch #141483.

Artistically Pleasing fall card


Today’s card is full of texture from the razzleberry background that was textured with the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #143537 from the Stampin Up Holiday catalog. She then the main panel that Cammie made using the direct to paper method and lots of color.  She embossed the flourish from the now retired Everything Eleanor stampset in espresso powder.  To complete the card she cut leaves from the retired Beautiful Branches Thinlits from espresso cardstock and gold foil to create this stunning card.

Give Thanks


Cammie really likes to use various techniques to create background paper like she did with the rectangular strip on this card.  She added the leaf cut from the now retired Beautiful Branches Thinlits. The sentiment is from the Suite Seasons #142206 stamp set in the Stampin Up Holiday catalog to create the clean and simple fall card.

Old Rose


I have been on a kick to start using up my old DSP and today I did just that.  I started off with the Stampin Up Something Borrowed DSP and then added a rose accent cut using the Rose Garden Thinlit #140619. I added the crumbcake satin ribbon and the sentiment and frame from the Rose Wonder stamp set #140697 to create a vintage birthday card.

Beehive 2ways

Today’s post features the Shooting Star #141616 Stampin Up stamp set to make these realistic beehives.  Cammie used her masterful brayering and sponging skills to create the background and added an image from the Timeless Treasures #140514. and the bees were stamped and hand cut out to add some whimsy to the card.
