The main reason that I bought the Eclectic Layers Thinlits #143774 from Stampin up was for the diamond shape so I could make engagement and wedding cards. Today’s cards show case 2 versions of the diamond using the glimmer paper. The background paper is from the now retired Painted with Love collection and was perfect for the diamond ring.

Today’s Christmas In July card is one that Cammie made that features the now retired Jar of Cheer stamp set. The candle image is cut with the Layering Circles #141705 Framelits and added to a gold metallic circle mat cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372 onto a stamped ray image. Cammie completed the card by adding the sentiment from the Stampin Up Christmas Pines #142049 stampset.
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.
Happy 50th birthday to our brother Chris. To commemorate his birthday, I made a simple card that is a pseudo replica of a guitar. I just used the Circle framelits #130911 from the Stampin Up to make the base of the guitar. I then used some silver string to string my 6 string. I anchored the string with a word window plate #119817 and the neutral candy dots #130934. For the card on the left, I made a paper guitar pick but I stepped it up with a real Fender guitar pick to add even more authenticity to this card. Thanks to my husband for giving me the idea to add a real pick to the card and he even gave up his pick. However, there was a method to his madness… he ordered me some more picks if I would make a few more cards for his card stache!
