Welcome July 2016


Happy July everyone!  Today’s post is to showcase the cute packaging that Cammie is using for her upcoming July workshops.  The card kits are bundled in a cellobag and tied with a piece of retired cherry cobbler chevron ribbon from Stampin Up.  For the tag, Cammie used the now retired Chalk Talk Tag Framelitsto cut the tag and then added a striped piece using the Stampin Up Brushstrokes #138952 stamp and added a few silver foil punched stars

More Painted Petals


I have been giving my retired products a real workout in anticipation of the new catalog items coming soon.  I used what I call the “magic” DSP to colorize the paper with Delightful Dijon ink and the buffed it to reveal the white embossed flowers.  The striped piece was stamped with the Brushstrokes #138952 background stamp.  For the focal panel, I pulled out the Painted Petals (retired) stamp set. Love all the layers work well together.

Egg-stra special birthday


Today’s card is one of my all time favorites of Cammies to date and decided to post if for our Aunt BJ’s 80th birthday. This card reminds me of BJ because she is a wife of a farmer and famous for her country cooking!  I love this card because it is using products and stamps in a way that they were not intended for to create a fun and whimsical birthday card.  For example,the bacon was created using the Brushstrokes #138952 background stamp.

Wonderful Watermelon

2015_08_03DSCI0833 (2)Cammie did a fantastic job creating this realistic watermelon card.   She used the direct to paper method to create the background and then added a border along the bottom using the new and fabulous Brushstrokes #138952 background stamp from the current Stampin Up annual catalog.  The watermelon was made using the Circle Framelits #130911 and then sponged along the edges to create a realistic look.  The seeds were punched from a heart punch cut in half and the butterflies were stamped using Papillion Potpourri #123759 and punched with the coordinating Bitty Butterfly punch #129406. Cammie finished the card by adding a piece of Thick Bakers Twine.
