Today’s post is a sneak peak of one of Cammie’s cards that will be available in the black and white card cafe on Black Friday. For this card Cammie thought outside the stamp. The sentiments are all from the You’re Amazing stampset #126722. and then cut into banners and layered on the card with First Edition DSP #121878. Super easy and a wonderful bright birthday card showing that you can never go wrong with Black and White!!

Today’s post was a very popular card in our recent card cafe and it features the You’re My Type stampset #125650 from the Stampin Up occasions mini catalog. Cammie loves to design using Black and White and add red as her “pop” color. The First Edition DSP #121878 works perfectly as the background of thus card. The typewriter is stamped in black and then cut out and popped on a grouping of labels framelits dies #125598. The smaller label in real read was stamped using the A to Z background stamp #115711 and the black label is textured using the houndstooth textured folder #123134. The card is accented with 3 cute little punches from the itty bitty shapes #118309 and a black brad.
I recently celebrated a BIG milestone birthday and one of the best gifts I got was a gift set of thank- you cards complete with envelopes and postage. I loved this because I make a lot of card sets and give them as gifts but it is really the first time I got such a thoughtful gift and I was able to knock out 12 quick thank-you. It was perfect since I had to My sister and fellow demonstrator gave me this gift and today’s post is one of the cards she she made for me using the Just my type stamp set #125650 and the wonderful new labels collection framelits dies from the Stampin Up occassions mini. This card uses my favorite DSP- First Edition #121878 from the IBC.
First of all, please excuse the blurry photo but we did not see the final image until way after the card was sent. Cammie created this card using the pool party card base edged with the scallop border punch #119882 to reveal a piece of the wonderful First Edition DSP #121878. The background butterfly images from the Strength and Hope stampset #123660 were stamped in pool party ink to create a monochromatic look. The dimensional butterflys were cut from flirtacious DSP #122360 and the Beautiful Wings embosslits die #118138 and scattered on the card base. The card was wrapped with whisper white bakers twine #124262 and Cammie added a frame embossed with the designer frames embossing folder#123130 and then cut out. Cammie then added a extra large oval punch #119859 from a scrap piece of First Edition DSP. She finished the card by adding pearls to the beautiful butterflies.
For today’s card, I drew my inspiration from the card in the Stampin Up IBC on page 120 but I don’t own the Field of Flowers set (shocking I know) so I substituted another flower that is no longer available but I wanted to showcase the wonderful First Edition DSP #121878 and the Happiest Birthday Wishes Hostess stamp set #122617. I stepped out of my comfort zone with this color combo (soft suede, cajun craze, and peach parfait). The Stampin Up DSP is always always great but this First Edition Specialty paper is double sided and lighter in weight and once the image is stamped on it it takes on a whole new look. I stamped the sentiment on soft suede and then punched it out using the curly label punch #119851 and popped it on top of the cajun craze strip textured with the perfect polka dots textured embossing folder. Love how it turned out!
The final color color coach challenge was selected by our pastel loving friend Sheri Foos from Gahanna Ohio. Sheri loves pastels and it is only fitting that she chose Very Vanilla, Perfect Plum and Rose Red for her creative combination. Sheri’s sweet vintage design features the First Edition DSP and the Vintage Vogue stamp set. Yvonne chose to go punch happy with this challenge and centered her design around the ever lovin’ hoot owl punch and the Punch Bunch stampset. Cammies vanilla challenge is overloaded with texture and her creative use of the pennant punch. Finally, my Very Vanilla card is stamped with Morning Cup labor intensive with coloring but is one tea-riffic card! Hope you have enjoyed all our color coach challlenges and you have been inspired to create. Leave a comment on which challenge you found the most inspiring.
