Awesome Thoughts


Cammie started this card out by distressing the background using Stampin Up’s Gorgeous Grunge #130514 stamp set and the masking technique to create the moon.  She added the dragon fly from the Awesomely Artistic #138694 stampset.  The gigantic flower is from the Stampin Up Hostess set- Best Thoughts #139234.  To make the flower pop, Cammie stamped, hand cut and popped the floral image on the card front.to create  an eclectic mix of realistic images and textured graphics.

Simple Best Thoughts

2015_10_06MG_9087Today’s post is a simple design using the Stampin Up Hostess set called Best Thoughts #139234.  The flower image was stamped on the main panel and then stamped again, colored with Copic markers and then popped and layered  onto the base image.  I added a coordinating bow and the sentiment to finish the card.

Brick Wall Birthday


I love it when I can combine multiple products and make a super fun birthday card.  The background is from my new favorite TIEF from Stampin Up- the Brick Wall #138288. I added another favorite- Typeset DSP#133704, to serve as the mat for the main panel. For the flower I stamped it using the You’ve Got This #139575 stampset , then colored it using Copic markers and handcut it out.  The sentiment is from the Stampin Up hostess set called Happy Birthday, Everyone #139171 and the butterfly is from the Best Thoughts #139234 stampset.

Best Thoughts Bundle

2015_09_05IMG_9077A beautiful handmade card is the best way to cheer up a friend that has had surgery and is in the hospital.  The Stampin Up Best Thoughts #139234 Hostess  stamp set is what I used for the flowers on the today’s card.   The card background is a piece of DSP from the now retired Adventure Awaits DSP paper stack. I then hand colored and cut out each flower to create a bright and beautiful card that is sure to bring cheer to a sick friend.

Seashells by the sea shore


Everything about todays card is perfect.  I love the unusual subtle color scheme that Cammie used to make this beach card.  When I say unusual I mean for Cammie.  She is not a pink girl and pastel pinks are way out of her color box!  For the main panel, Cammie started with a piece of Stampin Up Neutrals DSP and sponged in the shoreline. She added a hand cut seashell from the Stampin Up By the Tide #129120 stamp set.  In true nautical form, Cammie added a knot using strands of Linen thread and completed the card by adding the sentiment from the Stampin Up Host set called Best Thoughts.

Nordic Noel


For today’s Christmas in July card, Cammie took advantage of the Stampin Up Clearance Rack to score a fabulous deal on last years Nordic Noel DSP #135822. To give a fresh take on the traditional holiday colors in the Nordic Noel Cammie added the beautiful flower from the current Stampin Up hostess stamp set called Best Thoughts #139234.  All I can say is wow and of course Happy Holidays!!

Best Thoughts


I always try to have sympathy cards on hand so I am ready to pop a card in the mail.  For today’s card I used a strip of Irresistibly Yours DSP and brayered it with Wisteria Wonder ink and I added a piece of coordinating ruffled ribbon along the edge.  For the main panel, I used the Stampin Up Painted Petals (now retired) stamp set and paired it with the Best Thoughts #138700 stampset.

The Best Thoughts stamp set is one of Stampin Up’s all new Hostess sets in the 2015-2016 annual catalog.
