Detailed Dragonfly

2017_07_08Richard GaraIMG_2215 I just love the details on this card just by simply using Stampin Up Framelits which also makes it quite easy.  I started with a circle cut in the top layer using the Layering Circle  Framelits #141705.  I cut 2 of the dragonfly flights from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits #142749 and glued then to the card front and cut away the excess and then layered a piece of Watercolor Wonder DSP (retired) beneath  the circle to create a sun effect.   I then cut out the big dragonfly and add a strip of rhinestones to “bling” it up! The sentiment is from the now retired Sweet Essentials stamp set.

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!

High Tide

2017_07_05IMG_2226 Today’s card is a peaceful card that I made to update my stash with sympathy or pick me up cards.  I love the sentiment (and all the other images) from the High Tide #143006 stamp set and wanted a calming card and think it came out great.

Detailed Watercolor Wonder

2017_07_02 I absolutely love the the simplicity of the Stampin Up Detailed Floral Thinlits DIe #141482 because the result is stunning when layered on top of a piece of Watercolor Wonder DSP (retired).  I added a piece of coordinating ribbon to cover the seam.  The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes #128748 stamp set.

Brighter Days to come

2017_05_18IMG_2168Today’s post combines the soon to be retiring Cupcakes and Carousels DSP Paper Stack #142744 with the Beautiful You #143004 stamp set from Stampin Up.  I   combined 3 patterned papers to create the background.  I then stamped the girl with the umbrella on a piece of very vanilla cardstock and then 2 more times on scraps of Cupcakes and Carousels DSP.  I hand cut out the dress and the umbrellas and pieced them back onto the girl on the vanilla cardstock to dress her up like a paper doll.  I stamped the sentiment from the Beautiful You on a circle cut with Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372.

Todays card is the perfect sympathy card that Cammie showed off her master inking skills- brayer and speonging.  The card features the Lovely As a Tree #128655 and the Thoughts & Prayers #128751 stamp sets from Stampin Up.

Sharing in Sorrow

A beautiful sympathy is the perfect way to show you care.  Cammie created lots of texture using brayering, daubing and other inking techniques.  The stamp set being featured is the Thoughts and Prayers #128751 stamp set from Stampin Up.
