Unique Valentine

Today’s posting is same layout done 2 ways and uses a lot of retired Stampin Up products. The background is textured with the all new Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #142761 from the Stampin Up Occasions catalog. The falling petals look like hearts so that is why Cammie decided to use it for her Valentine.  The DSP is very old stampin Up DSP that Cammie stamped directly onto.  The bird is from the retired Season of Friendship and the foliage on the left is from the In the Meadow #140751 stamp set and the foliage on the right is from the retired An Open Heart stamp set.  Cammie added 2 red glimmer punched hearts.  Although this card was intended for a Valentine, I think it could be used as an all occasion or even a sympathy card.

Ornament and bird


This is an absolutely adorable card  featuring the retired Stampin Up  stamp set called An Open Heart.  Cammie handcut out the bird and the ornament is pieced using a 2 1/2 inch circle punch and the birds reflection on the bulb.

Little Bird


This all purpose card turned out so beautifully and it was relatively simple for one of Cammie’s cards.  Cammie started textured the background using the Stampin Up Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #139673 and then lightly sponged the sky background and the bark of the tree.  She added leaves and a hand cut branch that was perfect for her sweet little bird from the now retired An Open Heart stampset.

Nature’s reflection

Remarkable You


Cammie really has a knack for making beautiful “nature” cards that can be used for any occasion. Today’s card is no exception.  She used a monochromatic color scheme for the background and then added the branches using 2 stampsets: An Open Heart (retired) and the Remarkable You #139891. The flowers were from the Remarkable You #139891 and handcut and added to the card.  She finished by adding a bird from the An Open Heart stampset.

JOY to the world



I was supposed to post a Christmas card yesterday since it was the 25th of the month but that conflicted with Blair’s birthday so today is the day.  This card is one of Cammie’s Christmas beauties. She textured the background with the retired Stampin Up Boughs and Berries Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. For the layered focal piece she started with a label cut from the Lots of Labels Framelits #138281 and then Stamped the image from the  Stampin Up An Open Heart #134999; she then added the cut  the letters out using retired set.  The poinsettia was stamped from the Reason For the Season #139730 stamp set.

Be sure to check out the Retired products on  the Stampin Up retirement list.  All products on the list will not be available beyond May 31st.

An Open Heart


Sometimes it’s hard to find the right words for the situation, but the detailed bird can help say everything your heart wants to convey. Today’s card post is an all purpose style card featuring the soon to be retired An Open Heart #135002 stamp set.  On the brayered focal panel,the bird is dangling a punched heart with rhinestone bling from a hand drawn string.  The left panel  is a strip of Wild DSP #138441  with hearts from the Hearts Border Punch #133784. Both panels are matted in Cherry Cobbler cardstock and placed on the sahara sand layer textured with the retired Wood grain TIEF.

The An Open Heart stamp set and the GO Wild DSP paper stacare on the Stampin Up Retired List and will not be available past May 31st. The Hearts Border Punch is also on the retirement list and is marked down in price. Be sure to check out the Retirement List to catch all the items before they are gone for good.

Christmas in July card parade

2014_07_25DSCI0744 In July we traditionally host a Christmas in July workshop where our focus is Christmas cards. Today marks only 5 months until Christmas so I am sharing a parade of Cammie’s cards from her Christmas in July workshop.  The first card is the Joyful Tidings card and features the Kinda Eclectic #135347, An Open Heart #134999, and Christmas Messages #131790 Stampin Up stampsets.

The starburst from the Kinda Eclectic set and The Joyful Tidings sentiment from the Christmas messages set are embossed with gold embossing powder.   The largest Apothecary Accents framelit #127003 and the Oval Accents framelits are layered to and anchor the mistletoe stamped, colored with Old Olive #130999 and Coastal Cabana #129369 blendabilites markers and then handcut.  The mistletoe was tied with the scrumptious gold 1/8 ” ribbon.

2014_07_26DSCI0745 The 2nd card in Cammie’s suite of Christmas cards is the silver Season’s Greetings card.  This card has a window cut from the Snowflake Framelits (no longer available) and then Cammie used silver embossing powder to emboss the mistletoe from the Open Heart stamp set.  The bird is also from the Open Heart stamp set and was colored using the Pumpkin Pie #130997 and Cherry Cobbler #130995 Stampin Up blendabilites markers. Once colored the bird was hand cut out and perched atop of the silver mistletoe.  The silver embossed snowflakes are from the Snow days #131892 stampset and the sentiment is from the Joy to the World stampset #131796. The simplicity of this card makes it a beautiful and stunning card.

2014_07_27DSCI0746The final card in Cammie’s Christmas card parade features the Tap, Tap, Tap #134201 from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  The Back to Black DSP #133700 is the background of this card.  Cammie went back to the basic to create the note paper using a ruler and the Project Life journaling pens #135304 and used the spiral border punch #119874. Cammie added a typewriter using the Tap Tap Tap stamp set. She completed the card by writing a Dear Santa letter asking for Stampin Up supplies!
