High Tide Sympathy

2017_06_17IMG_0563 Today’s card is a very simple yet beautiful sympathy card featuring the High Tide #143006 stamp set from Stampin Up.  Cammie sponged the ocean and sky before adding the waves image and the sea gulls from the High Tide set.  The sentiment is from the Better Together #141733 stamp set.  The card is layered and includes the wood grain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder that is no longer available.

Summer Flip Flop wreath

2017_06_15IMG_2191 In anticipation of my upcoming beach vacation, I made a simple flip flop wreath using 9 pair of colorful flip flops from the Dollar Tree.  It is the perfect decor for our deck and pool area.

A lighthouse

2017_06_14IMG_0501 Who doesn’t love a lighthouse? Do you hear the beach calling your name? It sounds a lot like what you hear when the Stampin Up High Tide #143006 stampset is calling to you.Do you hear the beach calling your name? It sounds a lot like what you hear when these stamps are calling to you. Cammie answered all the calls with this one.  She brayered the background and then added the sand and lighthouse from the High Tide stamp set.  The focal panel is mounted on marina mist cardstock textured with the Cable Knit Imperial Embossing Folders #1435337 to complete the nautical look.

In Color Celebration

2017_06_12IMG_2188 I wanted to make a card to showcase all the new In colors (2017-2019) from Stampin Up: Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink, and Tranquil Tide.  I used the now retired Botanical Blooms stamp set and coordinating Botanical Builder Framelits  to make a bunch of flowers and leaves.  I used the fabulous new Wood Textures DSP #144177 as the background and added 2 pieces of 5/8 inch Burlap ribbon #141487 to anchor the flowers to.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful You #143004 stamp set to create this bright and beautiful card.

Sending Sunshine

2017_06_11IMG_2184 The Daisy Delight Stamp set and the coordinating Daisy punch available in a Stampin Up Bundle #145361 were my favorite items in the new Stampin Up 2017-2018 catalog.  I must not be alone in that because the Daisy punch is already on back order and unavailable to order until late June.  Oh well, I was able to make this sweet card using the  Daisy Delight bundle.  I textured the background with the Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #141468. I stamped the daisy image directly onto a piece of Delightful Daisy DSP#144137 then cut them in half and layered them and added a 1/2 inch circle Punch #119869. I added the sentiment from the Sunshine Sayings #141591 stamp set.
