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.
