Tropical Birthday

2019_03_22IMG_3580 Continuing along with a month of birthday posts, this card is all about the Tropical Escape Stampin Up product suite.  The background paper is from the Tropical Escape #146916 DSP collection.  The leaves and flowers were stamped using the Tropical Chic #146750 stamp set and then cut out using the coordinating Tropical Thinlits #146831.  The sentiment is from the Hand Delivered # 146808 Hostess Stamp set.

Two Koi for You

2019_01_11IMG_0798Did you know that koi are symbols of love and friendship in Japan? Well Cammie used the All the Good Things #146555 stamp set from Stampin Up to feature for her generic friendship cards.  She created the koi pool using wadded plastic wrap and inks.  The leaves were created using the Tropical Chic #146750 stamp set and the coordinating Tropical Thinlits #146831 dies.

Retro Kitchen tools 2

2017_05_20IMG_2156I have had a lot of fun playing with the Perfect Mix stamp set and paring it with the Succulent Garden DSP (No longer available).  Both items were in the Stampin Up Occasions Catalog and on the retirement list but it looks as if the Succulent Garden DSP has sold out. The background DSP is from the Succulent Garden DSP collection and then I created a strip of crumb cake cardstock and randomly stamped the images from the stamp set and then stamped the mixing bowl and spoon, colored them and hand cut it out and placed it on the card to make a geat birthday card.

The Succulent Garden DSP was on the Retirement List along with  the Perfect Mix stamp set ad other ith a lot of other great products are on the Stampin Up Retirement List and are discounted.  The items on the Retirement List are only available while supplies last or May 31st which ever comes first; so be sure to check it out and order sooner than later!

Lemons Journal

2015_04_20DSCI0806 Today’s post is a fabulous journal that Cammie made using the Stampin Up kraft journal #135718 as the base.  Cammie always has a fresh journal in her purse, car, house to keep herself organized.   She also likes to give them as gifts so she always makes them so she has a few on hand.

This journal  has a pool party base layer that is silver embossed using the Stampin Up Gorgeous Grunge stamp set #130517.  The rest of the journal was designed using the now retired Sale-a-bration products: Irresistibly Yours DSP cut into a banner and sponged with pear pizazz ink to reveal the white embossed leaves on the DSP.  The other banner was stamped with versa mark using the Stampin Up Happy Thing stamp set and then embossed with silver embossing powder.  She finished the journal by adding the sentiment multiple times across the bottom of the journal in random pattern.

Witches Brew Journal

2013_11_01DSCI0509Happy Birthday goes out to our sweet niece Elizabeth who is 16 years old today.

For today’s post Cammie used the Witches Brew DSP #132185 from the Stampin Up holiday catalog to create a super fun and dark journal for her brother.  The cover DSP was perfect for the journal and besides embossing the initials on the cover there was nothing more to do.

2013_11_01DSCI0512 Inside the cover Cammie used the First Edition DSP and then made a pocket and decorated it with the Toil and Trouble stampset #131727.  The back cover was covered with the another piece of DSP from the Witches Brew DSP collection.

What a quick and fun way to transform a simple composition journal into a fun piece!

Bright Ideas

Cammie is famous for creating something wonderful out of ordinary objects and today’s post is no exception to that.  She took an ordinary composition book and dressed it up using DSO from StampinUp to create our Bright Ideas journals complete with ribbon and charm bookmarks.  The light bulb was created using various Stampin Up punches.  I absolutley love my journal.

Grow Journal

As you saw from yesterdays post, composition books are fun to decorate into a work of art to use for yourself or make great gifts.  Cammie loves to make the composition books.  This one is beautiful and very detailed – check out the pearls in the spine.  This book is done using the retired night and day paper coupled with the Grow stamp from Convention 2011.
