Bloom By Bloom

2019_08_17IMG_4448 Today is a very cheerful card featturing the now retired Happiness Bloom suite from Stampin Up. I truly love how Stampin Up coordinates their products to help take the guesswork out of card making.

Don’t quit your day dream

2019_06_09IMG_0938 For today’s card, Cammie created texture using 2 Textured Impressions Folders: Swirls and Curls #147923 and the Seasonal Wreath #151796. For the focal piece, Cammie created the beach scene on a Stitched Shapes #145372 using the Waterfront #146376 and the retired Custom Tees stamp sets from Stampin Up.

Share What You Love

Today’s post showcases the beautiful retirement card and gift certificate holder from my friend.  She used the Love What You Do DSP # 148042 from Stampin Up for both items.  There is so much detail on both of these cards but I especially love what she did on the inside flap of the card that uses a wide variety of words to celebrate my retirement.

2019_01_08IMG_3838 Today’s card serves 2 purposes: I am officially retired from my 9 to 5 job and I used this card as the thank you cards for the gifts I received from my friends and family.  The design is simple and features the Large Letters Framelits #141712 dies from Stampin Up.

New Adventures

2018_05_15IMG_2693 When it comes to card making you can’t get much simpler than this card.  I simply matted a card from the Color Theory Memories and More card pack and added a piece of ribbon to make a quick and easy retirement card.

Decisions Decisions

2018_02_03MG_0661 I really think this card is fantastic and really sums up a nice vacation away from the cold and snowy blistery winter we have had.  The background was textured using the ruffled Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder #143699 from Stampin Up.  For the main focal panel, Cammie used her brayering skills and the Touches of Texture #141934 stamp set to  dimension and character to her lovely beach scene. She added the realistic looking shells from the So Many Shells #143695 stamp set.  The Photographic-inspired shells make this card extraordinary.  The sentiment is from the now retired Beachy Little Christmas stamp set from Stampin Up.

Just Beachy

2017_07_06IMG_0500 Today’s post is another all purpose card using the Stampin Up High Tide #143006 stamp set.  This card is gorgeous and one of Cammies exclusive brayered designs and a tribute card to her retirement in Galveston TX from Tulsa.  I think she will get used to her new way of life!

Humming Birds


Today’s post is another Stampin Up Picture Perfect #140520 card that features the Picture Perfect Stamp set in the Occasions catalog  The images in this set really come to life because of the 2 step stamping technique and then heat embossed to add more textureer. The swirls from the Everything Eleanor #131987 added classic elegance to the all occasion card.

Fresh from the Market


Today’s post is mostly about the Stampin Up Farmers Market DSP #138448. I used it for the background paper and added random “Fresh” images from the Stampin Up Farm Fresh (retired) stamp set. For all the vegetables except the lettuce, I cut them out of a piece of Market Fresh DSP.  For the lettuce, I used the Market Fresh #138708 stamp set, colored it with Copic markers and then cut it out and popped it on top of all the other vegetables.  I added a piece of twine to complete this super fun card.
