Tom the turkey made the debut as one of Cammie’s premiere Thanksgiving cards. She primarily used the now retired Stampin Up Daydream Medallion stampset and the coordinating Floral Frames #127012 Framelit dies to dress up Tom’s feathers. The rest of the darling turkey was made using lots of other Stampin Up punches and dies . Once assembled Tom is mounted on a Woodgrain #127821 textured background.
To coordinate with the adorable card, Cammie made adorable Tom the Turkey party favors using the Stampin Up Curvy Keepsakes Die as the base treat holder. Gobble Gobble Gobble!
Today’s card started from a sketch I saw on a blog and looks like a lot of work but really it was not that bad. I wanted to use the Festival of Prints DSP paper stack #126904 as the base and the accent piece. The work of this card comes with pulling out the heat gun, versa pad and embossing powders but the flower came together quickly by using the Day Dream Medallion stamp #126427 and the coordinating Floral Fusion framelits #127012. When I was done embossing I was super happy with the results.
Here’s a big shout out to my friend and fellow blogger Sherry Rider. Today’s card is the card I made for her birthday but it was a bit bulky to mail so I hand delivered it to her. This card features the Day Dream Medallions #126467 stampset and the coordinating Floral Frames Framelits #127012 from the Stampin Up Annual Catalog. I embossed all layers of the flower using versa mark and clear embossing powder. The center of the flower is the yummy vintage faceted designer buttons #127555. I placed the flower on a piece of ivory cardstock textured with the fancy fan textured folder #127751.
The houndstooth DSP is from the Festival of Prints DSP paper pack #126904 from the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog. The Festival of Prints DSP paper pack comes in a pack of 48 sheets (4 EA of 12 Designs) that are perfectly sized to 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″. The Festival of Prints DSP paper is intended for making fun holiday card fronts or for matting holiday photos but the versitility of the designs allows for non holiday card design. As a matter of fact I have used this paper more for non holiday cards than for holiday use. I call that thinking outside the DSP.
To finish this card, I stamped and embossed the sentiment and using the Curly Cute #120510 stampset and hand cut the early espresso banner. I hope the birthday girl likes this card as much as I liked creating it!
Stampin Up has gone crazy with the introduction of the Framelits in their Big Shot line up. For today’s post, I used the new Floral Framelits #127012 and nested them and attached them to a belly band for a cute surprise at my recent workshop. It’s quick and easy to create something cute.
