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!

Oh What Fun

2013_12_29DSCI0557 The picture does not do this card justice.  I must say that I am really lucky to have Cammie as not only my sister but my Stampin Up upline because I was lucky enough to receive all 7 of her brayered Christmas cards this year. This card ranks right up near the top of my favorites.  I loved it so much that went ahead and ordered the Snow Day stamp set so that I can recreate this card for some winter birthdays and keep my brayering skills fresh!!!

Cammie brayered the background and added the snowman from the Snow Day stampset #131895 from the Stampin Up holiday catalog and added the sentiment from the Christmas Messages #131793 stampset also from the holiday catalog. She randomly stamped snowflakes from the snow day set and added rhinestone bling to the centers.  Oh what fun it was for me to get this card!

If you still need to order from the Holiday catalog it’s not too late you can order from it through January 2, 2014 so don’t miss out.

Joyful Christmas x 2

2013_12_11_001-Joyful Christmas2013_12_11_002-Joyful ChristmasToday’s post will showcase the beautiful Joyful Christmas #131805 stampset from the Stampin Up holiday catalog.  Cammie loves to use the same stampset in different ways and that is what she did today with both of these cards.  The first card is a winter white -appropriate for much of the country right now with the winter weather we have had.  She embossed the poinsettia in silver on the vellum cardstock. She then hand cut out the poinsettia and placed it on a white lace paper doily #129399. She then added some white gorgeous grunge #130157 splats and the sentiment to complete this elegant beauty.

Now if that is not enough check out the 2nd card using the Joyful Christmas set.  Same stamp set completely different look.  The sentiment for the 2nd card is from the Christmas messages #131793 stampset.  This card needs no instructions but turned out super cute.
