A Girl’s Best Friend

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.

Christmas Candle

2017_07_26IMG_0465 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.

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.

Guitar Hero

2014_10_01IMG_5347 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!

Monocled Man


I have to admit that I saw this card when I was looking for ways to use the all new Stampin Up mustache framelit #133741 and fell in love.  He reminds me of the Mr. Peanut man.  For my interpretation, I used the Stampin Up Circle Framelits #130911, the Mustache Framelit, the Word Window punch #119857 and a random whisper White for the shirt.  I love how it turned out and am Happy I have a masculine Card on hand!
