Happy accident

When I was prepping to make all my calendar easel cards for the new year, I over cut and prepped by one but did not have enough calendars so I turned it into a cute birthday card for a January birthday.2016_01_10IMG_9491

So instead of the calendar piece I added the  new Botanical Builder Framelit flowers from the all new Stampin Up Occasions catalog.  The background paper is from the now retired Painted Blooms DSP.   The It’s Your day sentiment is from the Fabulous Four Stampin Up stamp set # 134171 and the other one that serves as the easel anchor is from the You’ve Got This stamp set #139572.

Happy Holidays in April

2015_04_25_100_1829 It’s the 25th of the month so its time for a Christmas post! Today’s post is  a simple design using all retired products but none the same you can recreate using new similar snowflakes and tag.

Speaking of retiring products, Stampin Up has published their retired list of products that will be gone soon.  The stamps on the list will remain through June 2nd but all the other products will be available while supplies last or through June 2nd which ever comes first.

Silver Present

2013_12_18IMG_0104Today’s post is a super simple card but was really one of my favorites.  The card was hard to photograph because the silver card card base is from the all new silver foil #132178 from the Stampin Up catalog.  I embossed the foil using the stylish stripes embossing folder #132174.  So now the card base looks like a pretty present that I then tied up with Cherry Cobbler seam binding and I added a tag using the Itty Bitty Banners #126257 stamp set and the coordinating Bitty Banners #129267 dies.  This card worked up fast and easy and could easily be used for a birthday card as well.

The good news is that the Silver Foil and the Gold Foil are both available in the Stampin Up holiday catalog but will also be carried over in the celebrate everday catalog that starts on 3 January-1 June 2014.

Christmas Blessings

2013_12_17_IMG_0098Today’s Christmas post is a beautiful card using the Stampin Up bird die that is now retired.  I embossed the bird with the petals a plenty embossing folder #116824 from the Stampin Up annual catalog and added the Christmas blessings sentiment from the More Merry Messages (now retired) stampset.  This card was my “spiritual or religious” card that I made this year.  I love how it turned out mainly because I love to do white on white cards.

Simple Christmas

2013_12_01DSCI0338Nothing says Christmas like Holly branches.  Cammie made this simple Christmas card using retired stamps and ribbon but is a great card to stamp a stack of and knock out many cards in a weekend.

Happy stamping!

Christmas candle punch art

2013_09_25IMG_0595 Today is the 25th and that means time for a Christmas card posting.  Can’t believe it is just 3 months from Christmas and I already have some of my this year’s cards done! Sorry for the horrible picture for today’s card but I wanted to focus on the main punch art piece.  The background DSP is from a now retired Christmas line from last year’s Stampin Up catalog.  The poinsettias were created using the mini Christmas punches (no longer available), the candle is made from the Ticket Duo Builder punch #126883 and the flame is the mini ornament punch (no longer available.  The candle is mounted on a window frames collection framelit #129021 and pierced using the coordinating Festive paper piercing pack #127857.  I truly love creating punch art.

25th of the Month so It’s a Banner Day

2013_08_25HappyHolidays_cammieIt’s the 25th of the month so it is truly a banner day for a Christmas card. For this card, Cammie used last years Stampin Up Christmas Cheer (now retired) DSP to make this super quick and easy card. The banner was hand cut and matted in Cherry Cobbler cardstock. The focal piece is an elongated Apothecary Accents framelit #127003 and she created an elongated window using the Word Window punch #119857.

This layout will work with any DSP and stampsets but why not get started on some easy Christmas cards using the new Christmas DSP in the Stampin Up Holiday catalog?

3D Ornament Christmas card

2013_06_25MASINjULYImported Photos 01302 It is the 25th of the month so that means it’s time for a Christmas card.  This was one of Cammie’s Christmas cards that she made using all retired Stampin Up products . including the ornament punch.  The ornament on the card is a 3D ornament that folds flat for mailing purposes.  You can use any symmetrical Stampin Up punch to create this look.  You just punch 3 shapes and fold in half and the attach them to one another.  It’s 6 months and counting until Christmas but it is just a month away before you can order from the Stampin Up holiday catalog.  Be on the look out for the holiday catalog available after July 1.  If you are interested in receiving a holiday catalog contact either Cammie – cammiet@att.net or me cathymorgan@wideopenwest.com and we will mail it to you.

Holiday Frame 4 ways

2013_03_25DSCI0822Well its the 25th of the month and that means it is time to post another Christmas card.  Today is your lucky day because you get to see 4 of Cammie’s cards using the same basic layout and the Holiday Frame Textured Embossing Folder.   Cammie switched the center stamp and swapped color and orientation to achieve 4 great looks.  This idea is a great way to knock out a bunch of Christmas cards in one setting.  Be sure to scroll down and see all the different designs.

Simple Star Tree

2012_12_21SimpletreeNothing says elegant like a layered white card and Cammie has perfected the white on white cards.  The main focus is on the Star Tree single stamp #126784 from the Stampin Up Annual Catalog that was embossed in gumball green powder and accented with the basic rhinestones colored real red with a red Sharpie marker.  The star was punched from a scrap of red glimmer paper using the Merry Minis punch pack #126882.  Love this card because it can be easily reproduced in no time- perfect choice when doing lots of Christmas cards.
