Gee Thanks

2014_06_21_pg163in color CASE thanks 002All  Stampin Up publications are full of fantastic ideas and samples just waiting to be copied or used as inspiration. Today’s card is a CASE (Copy and Steal Everything) card from pg 163 of the current Stampin Up annual catalog.  Cammie just adjusted the colors of the Mosaic Madness #130249 stamped pieces from pool party to the new in color, Lost Lagoon.  The whisper white background was embossed with the Modern Mosaic textured folder #129984.  She then did some watercoloring with the Stampin Up aqua painters and Lost Lagoon ink.  The stamped mosaic pieces were punched using the coordinating Mosaic Punch #131267. She then used the fabulous Beautiful Wings embosslit folder3118138  to make the butterflies. Cammie used Stazon ink to stamp the sentiment from the Really Good Greetings #130333 stampset directly onto whisper white satin ribbon.

Wonderful Wetlands

2014_06_04DSCI0532 Today’s post is a beautifully brayered masterpiece that Cammie made at her recent brayering workshop. For the razzleberry background Cammie used the now retired Daydream wheel to add a monochromatic strip down the left hand side.  She then created  panel by brayering the background and the she used the Wetlands #126697 stamp for her grass.  To finish the card, Cammie used the Mosaic Madness #130249 stampset and the coordinating punch to make the center focal piece amidst her button accent pieces.

If you like all the brayering pieces that Cammie does then be sure to include the Wetlands stampset on your wishlist because it makes the perfect grass in her beachy scenes.

Layered Beauty

2014_01_26DSCI0458

Today’s card is a layered beauty that Cammie made for an all occasion card. The background for the main panel of this card is Island Indigo cardstock textured with the Stampin Up Mosaic Folder #129984 and then brayered with pool party ink.  Cammie then cut a Window frame in Mambo cardstock using the Window Framelits #129021 and textured it with the Square Lattice folder  #119976.  She then cut a smaller window in whisper white and sponged some Island Indigo ink and stamped 1 section of the Pleasant Poppies stamp #129499 and colored the image with inks and blender pens. To complete the look,  Cammie used the Mosaic Madness stamp set #1330249 and the coordinating Mosaic punch #131267 to create a line of popped images across the center of the card front.  If you like the Mosaic Madness stampset be sure to bundle it with the Mosaic punch and save 15%.

All things bright and beautiful

2013_09_21IMG_3368Lately I have been spending a lot of time playing with paper and have had a great time doing it.  I saw a layout using the 4 panel design and thought I’d give it a try with the Quatrefancy Specialty DSP #130141 from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  I paired the DSP with the coordinating Mosaic Madness #130249 stampset and punch #131267.  I  absolutely love the clean and bright finished card.  If you like the Mosaic Madness products be sure to Bundle them.  You can save 15% when you purchase the Mosaic Madness Stamp set and the Mosaic Punch together (clear bundle #132733 & Wood bundle #132734).

A cute quickie

2013_09_19IMG_3379 Today’s card is a super quick and fun thank you card using the Mosaic Madness  #130249 stampset from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  The sentiment is from the now retired Sweetly Said stamp set. I used the same stamps but just switched out the colors between stamping.  The hardest part of this card was cleaning the image between stamping but seriously sometimes we just need a quickie every once in awhile! I used other color combinations to make this card too but I always gravitate towards the brights.

More Mosaic Madness

2013_08_29IMG_3372 I know you are all probably getting sick of the Mosaic Madness stamp set from the Stampin Up annual catalog and all my posts but I can’t help it when I get new stuff I like to play with it until it gets old. But I promise after today I will be done with mosaic madness for now….  For today’s post I wanted to use a subtle approach to the mosaic madness set #130249 and both the coordinating mosaic embossing folder#129984 and mosaic punch #131267. If you love this set as much as me be sure to take advantage of the Mosaic bundling option when purchasing the punch and stamp set together you save 15%. Be sure to use the item #  using the #132733 for clear stamps and #132734 for wood stamps to receive the discount.

Just to get crazy I added another new product the Artisan Label punch #130920 to anchor the sentiment.  To complete the look I added basic rhinestones.

In color mosaic inspiration

2013_08_28IMG_3370Today’s post is another card that I got inspiration from the Stampin Up annual catalog from page 121.  I used the new 2013-2015 in colors and added the 3D embellishment made using the Mosaic Madness stampset #130249 and the coordinating mosaic punch #131267.  To make the embellishment you need 3 images and then you fold them in half and attach them to one another. The background is the mosaic textured embossing folder #129984.  The birthday banner was stamped using the Itty Bitty Banner #126257 and coordinating Itty Bitty Banner #129267 framelits.

The mosaic madness suite of coordinating products makes card making a snap.  You can also save 15% when bundling the stampset and punch together using the #132733 for clear stamps and #132734 for wood stamps.

Hello…. It’s CASE Time

2013_08_26IMG_3382Whenever I am in a design slump, I just call in for the experts! I open my Stampin Up annual catalog to find something I can CASE (Copy and Steal Everything) or find something to inspire me.  For today’s card, I turned to page 121 of the Stampin Up annual catalog and switched out the color pallet to using the new 2013-2015 In colors.  It’s hard to tell from the picture, but this card has a strip of printed transparency from the Quatrefancy Speciality DSP #130141.  I added random stamped and hand cut images from the Mosaic Madness stamp set #130249 to create this card.

Thank you Stampin Up design team members for making such great samples and putting them in your annual catalogs to inspire us and help us overcome design block.  As a tip, when working with transparencies, to secure the transparency to the card base I used glue dots and then added the elements on top of the transparency to hide the glue dot.

Bring on the Washi Tape

2013_07_07DSCI0316 For today’s card, Cammie combined the Epic Day and This and That Washi tape #131269 and the  Mosaic Madness stampset #130249 and the coordinating Mosaic punch #131267 all from the Stampin Up 2013-2014 annual catalog to create this simple card.  For even more fun, Cammie carried the mosaic stamps to the inside of the card.  To finish the card she wrapped it with Island Indigo bakers twine #125575.

Washi tape is all the rage and Stampin Up has a What_to_Washi_OnlineClass_0612 where you get the tutorial and all 12 rolls of Washi including the Witches Brew and Season of Style rolls that cannot be purchased individually  until 1 August. So if you are Wild over Washi then now is the time to place an order and learn how to use it with the step by step downloaded tutorial.
