Winter Blues

2018_02_22IMG_2694 Trying to get through the winter blues by creating a bright and cheerful card using the Memories and More Color Theory Card Pack #144210 from Stampin Up.  Each pack includes 52 double-sided 3″ x 4″ (7.6 x 10.2 cm) cards, 2 each of 26 designs; 20 double-sided 4″ x 6″ (10.2 x 15.2 cm) cards, 2 each of 10 designs; 2 cardstock sticker sheets; 4 printed acetate cards, 1 each 4″ x 6″ (10.2 x 15.2 cm) and 3 each 3″ x 4″ (7.6 x 10.2 cm.) and are perfect for both scrapbooking and card making. Before I added the 2 cards, I textured the card base with the Layered Leaves #143704 Dynamic Textures Impressions Embossing Folder.

Toucan of Appreciation


Today’s card features the Bird Banter #145852 stamp set from the Stampin Up Occasions Catalog.  Cammie created the background on the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock by randomly stamping the leaf image from the Pop of Paradise #141581.  The branch from the Seasonal Layer Thinlits #143751 just beneath the toucans feet.  To complete the card Cammie added the sentiments from the Bird Banter set on hand cut banners.

Naturally Eclectic

The Naturally Eclectic DSP from Stampin Up is the star of these 2 cards.  Cammie paired the DSP with the You’re Priceless #143760 photo polymer stamp set and the coordinating Eclectic Layers Thinlits #143774 to create cards for all the priceless gems and jewels in her  life.  These cards  most certainly show  how brilliant they really are!

Picture Perfect Party Hats

2018_02_16IMG_2973 Nothing screams birthday like a great big and bright party hat.  The Stampin Up Picture Perfect DSP #145559 has photographic imagery including party hats, party blowers, cake, donuts, balloons and more on one side and coordinating graphics on the flip side to make you want to party even more!   I trimmed the paper and added three rows of fringed paper that I cut using the fringe scissors.
