Seas the Day at the Beach

2018_08_06 Summer vacation is in full swing at beaches so this card is the perfect choice to “Seas The Day” and relax. Cammie used a subtle color scheme and the Hardwood #133032 background stamp from Stampin Up. For the focal panel, Cammie used various inking techniques to create the beach scene and added an Adirondack chair cut from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits #143751.  The sentiment from the now retired So Many Shells stamp set was embossed in white and then the card was finished by adding jute twine to the side panel.

Sweet watermelon slice of life


Summer is long over but the sweet taste of watermelon never gets old.  The background was done using the Stampin Up Hardwood background #133032.  The watermelon was done using the ovals#129381 and circles # 130911 framelits. The seeds were added using the wide end of the black stampin Up marker and the bite was taken out using the 7/8 ” scallop circle #129404 punch.  The sweet sentiment was stamped using the Bravo #135380.

Manly Man class

2015_06_21DSCI0830 (2) It’s fathers day so I could not resist making a 2nd post today to honor all the dads in our lives.  This post is super adorable and is the packaging for Cammies June workshop featuring all masculine cards that you have seen over the past few days and the Stampin Up manly papers that were available in the Adventure Bound DSP paper stack.  As with most of Cammie’s fantastic designs, she brayered the mountains and daubered the grassy land.  She used the Stampin Up Wood You Be Mine (now retired) stamp set to stamp the lumberjack.  She then colored him in and peeked him behind a wood beam made using the Hardwood Background Stamp #133032.

What a fun way to package a masculine workshop! I plan to repurpose the packaging and remove the panel to make into a masculine card.

Peeping Tom

2015_06_10DSCI0834 Today’s post makes me smile and reminds me of Tim the Tool man Taylor’s neighbor, Wilson, from one of my all time favorite sitcoms- Home Improvement.  How is that for a Throwback Thursday? Cammie made todays card using mostly product from the now retired occasions catalog.   Cammie made the fence using the Hardwood #133035 Background stamp to cut the planks.  She added the cute sign holding critter from the now retired Cheerful Critter set.  The grass was hand cut from a piece of the now retired Adventure Bound DSP paper stack.

This is such a fun card that can be adapted to any occasion just by swapping out the sentiment.

Timber…. another birthday

2015_02_24IMG_6953 I bought the Stampin Up Wood you be Mine polymer stamp set #137134 specifically for the masculinity of the lumber jack.  So since I needed a masculine birthday card for my brother in law’s Davids birthday tomorrow I made it work.  I had the left over parts from what I wanted to do for some valentines so I decided to use it to make a birthday card by simply just not adding the valentine sentiments included in the set.

For the background I used the Stampin Up Hardwood #133305 background stamp and then layered it with a piece  of DSP from the Stacked with Love DSP paper stack #137779 in the Stampin Up occasions catalog. I also added a piece of the rough and tough Burlap Ribbon #132140 and a hand stamped and cut out tree stump.

2015_02_24IMG_6929These are the 2 masculine Valentines that I made using this set.  It is fun to look beyond the stampset to use it for other than intended and in my case it was just swapping out the sentiment.

Happy Day

2014_06_25IMG_0911 Today’s card is one that I have used for happy occasions and also for not so happy times just but swapping out the sentiment.  The card base is stamped with the Hardwood background stamp #133035 from the Stampin Up annual catalog. I then used the Hexagon Hive #132965 to create a trellis.  I stamped and hand cut the flower from the now retired Happy Watercolor stampset and added the little leaves from the Little Leaves sizzlet (now retired).  I added a piece of crushed curry Chevron ribbon #130019.  The sentiment is stamped from the Happy Day (now retired) stampset and then cut out with the Apothecary Accents #127003 label and finished with 2 basic rhinestones.

Simply Sketched

2014_05_21Simply Sketched -both

Today’s post is another 1 layout 2 looks that Cammie made featuring the Simply Sketched #129672 Hostess stamp set.  This set and all the Hostess sets in the current Stampin Up catalog will not be available after June 1st but will be replaced by new Hostess only stampsets.

Cammie masterfully brayered the water and the bird scene on the main panel of this card and then mounted the panel on coordinating cardstock and then added a larger panel stamped with the Hardwood background stamp #133032.
This card is so beautiful that it can be used for any occasion.2014_05_212014_05_21Simply Sketched-Indigo

Easter Basket 2014


Today’s post is a fun card I made using the Stampin Up ovals framelits #129381.  To create the basket I stamped the hardwood stamp # 133035 and then cut it into strips along the grain.  I then wove the strips and placed it on top of the oval ring and trimmed down to shape the basket.  I filled the basket with eggs cut using the ovals framelits and used the Gorgeous Grunge #130517 t0 the eggs in a matching ink to add texture.  I added a piece of strawberry slush 3/8″ ruffle stretch ribbon and the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes #127802 stampset.  The assembled basket was place on the “grunged” card front.

Straight to the Heart

2014_02_14Laural Mnt, Sunshine and Val 005-Val2

Happy Valentines Day.  Today we will have 2 cards in one post.  Cammie and I had a challenge to use the same stamp set for one of our Valentines.  We used the Love you More #131850 stampset. The Love You More stampset is not in any catalog but is available for a limited time only.   Its funny how we had the many images in the set to pick from and we came up with completely different cards using the same sentiment.  That is sisters for you! Cammies card is a basic Valentine layout using alternating hearts cut from the Hearts Collection Framelits #125599 in whisper white cardstock and the red glimmer paper 121790 is a fun design.  The arrow at the bottom was a very creative use of Stampin Up supplies. The arrowhead is obviously a red heart turned sideways.  She added a piece of 1/8″ black taffeta ribbon  119261 through 2 slots and added chevrons hand cut from the Positively Chevron background stamp#130496 and she added the sentiment from the Love You More stampset. Clean and Simple with lots of layers.  That is my kind of card.

2014_02_14IMG_0617For My card I was inspired by the sentiment from the Love You More stampset and created this dartboard using the Circle Collection Framelits #130911.  I used every circle except the large scallop and layered each color on top of one another to create the dart board.  After assembling the dartboard I place it on a Hardwood #133032 Background.  I added a small heart punched from the Owl Builder punch #118074 to the center of the dartboard. The arrow was punched with the now retired arrow punch.  My card was also a clean and simple design with lots of layers.

I think Cammie and I both did a great job on this challenge.
