Sea shell Sea shell

2013_04_20DSCI0073When I saw this card, I instantly thought of the She sells sea shells by the sea shore tongue twister.  Crazy Huh?  I think these cards that Cammie has done using the Stampin Up By the Tide  stamp set have gotten prettier each day.  Today’s card uses the Needlepoint border #129383 at the top and bottom of the card front and then colored with a chocolate chip marker. A wide calypso coral strip and then a soft suede stamped with the Netting background stamp #122655.  A large paper doily was cut from the Delicate Doilies Sizzlet #126999 from pool party cardstock and then a large  soft suede circle was stamped with coral image from the By the Tide #129120 stampset.  The circle was adorned with and embossed seashell from the By the Tide set and a couple of buttons.

Magnificent Lollies

Cammies final 2 cards from our Hello Doily workshop are today’s post

 The first card is a wonderful card using the paper lollies created using the amazing simply scored tool. The card base is 4.25 X 5.5 piece of Flirtatious DSP. Cut 2 scallop circles from the perfect pennant die out of pumpkin pie stamped with delicated doily.  She then scored every valley using the simply scored board and sliced to the center of each scalloped circle.  Then fan fold using the mountain/ valley folding technique and attach the two pieces together. Add centers from boho blossom punch and attach with designer printed brad.  The wisteria lolly is a piece of Flirtatious DSP cut 1.25 x 12 and scored every quarter inch using the simply scored tool.  The markers on the simply scored tool made came in handy! Then fan fold using the mountain/ valley folding technique and attach the two ends together to form a circle. The tag was created using 2 shapes from the matchbox die and word window punch.

 Cammie knew she would share the love of the hello doily stamp at a workshop the moment she won the stamp from the prize patrol at the Stampin Up convention.  Her card layout is simple but yields a magnificent card.  Stamp the hello doily on very vanilla using pumpkin pie ink.  The center is done using the build a blossom stamp (so saffron cardstock and more mustard ink) and coordinating build a blossom punch then attach an antique brad to the center. Add a strip more mustard paper using the dotted scalloped ribbon border punch and wrap with the espresso quilted ribbon from the holiday mini.

Delicate Doilies

One of the advantages of being a StampinUp demonstrator is that you have access to many resources and a wonderful monthly publication called Stampin Success that is packed full of ideas and techniques.  Today’s post is the 3rd card I made for my hello doily workshop and is a card that was featured in the July issue of Stampin Success and I loved it so much I used it for my workshop.  Please ignore the smudges on my sample, it is not blurry vision or a bad scan it is a result of a major drink spillage in my work area.  In 15 years of doing paper crafting I have never spilled a drink so that is a good thing but my card is now a true sample.

To create the card, I randomly stamped the delicate doily stamp set in wisteria, pumpkin pie and mambo ink on whisper white cardstock.  I made a ribbon from cardstock and wrapped white bakers twine around card front then added a wisteria circle and topped it off with a mambo doily from the flirtacious DSP and put a pearl in the center.
