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.

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!

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.
