Give Thanks

2016_11_20img_0424

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

2016_11_19img_1138

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.

Shelter from the Storm

4

Every once in a while it is nice to have a  pick me up card to send an encouraging note or let people know that you love them. The Stampin Up Weather Together #141543 stamp set is the perfect set to brighten someones day.  Cammie stamped the umbrella pieces and then hand cut it out (although there is a coordinating Umbrella Weather Framelits #141479) and added it to the main layer.  Cammie created the main layer using the Swirly Bird #141749 stampset and she finised by adding the sweet sentiment from the Weather Together stamp set.

Vintage Thanks

The thanksgiving season is upon us and todays card is a real Vintage beauty.  Cammie chose a beautiful fall palette for this card and textured the square element using the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #141493.  She stamped the  leaf using the Stampin Up Vintage Leaves #138802 stamp set from Stampin Up.  She then sponged and hand cut out the leaf and added a piece of linen thread before adding it to the dijon square that was textured using the Gorgeous Grunge #130514 stampset. The cajun craze strip was textured with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #127821. She added the sentiment from the Suite Seasons #142206 stamp set.

Washi Tape Thanks

2016_11_12img_8994

I have to admit that I love Washi Tape and have so many rolls that I refuse to buy any more until I start to use what I have.  So today’s card is my first attempt to start using washi tape to make a quick and easy card. I just stamped the sentiment from the now retired Fabulous Four stamp set from Stampin Up.  Then I just added Washi tape to fill in the blank space.

Thank a veteran

2016_11_11img_1242

To all the members of the Armed Services…. Thank you for serving and making our world a better and safer place.  To honor our veterans, I used all retired Stampin Up products to create a patriotic card. The Maritime DSP is used for all the layers.  The world map is from the Going Global stamp set and the sentiment is from the Really Good Greetings stamp set.
