Wonderful Watermelon

2015_08_03DSCI0833 (2)Cammie did a fantastic job creating this realistic watermelon card.   She used the direct to paper method to create the background and then added a border along the bottom using the new and fabulous Brushstrokes #138952 background stamp from the current Stampin Up annual catalog.  The watermelon was made using the Circle Framelits #130911 and then sponged along the edges to create a realistic look.  The seeds were punched from a heart punch cut in half and the butterflies were stamped using Papillion Potpourri #123759 and punched with the coordinating Bitty Butterfly punch #129406. Cammie finished the card by adding a piece of Thick Bakers Twine.

100% CASE

2013_03_13IMG_0946 If you have the Stampin Up spring catalog then you should recognize this card.  When I saw the card I knew I had to reproduce it.  I switched up the papers and the sentiment but for the most part I copied it.  I stamped monchromatic butterflies using the Pappillion Potpourri stamp set #123759 and then added random butterflies punched from More Amore DSP #129309 using the Bitty Butterfly punch #129406. I added the folded paper tea lace doily #129399 and a banner cut using the Hearts a Flutter Framelits #130159. This card is a great example of using product from the Spring catalog.

Simple Sympathy

2013_02_01IMG_0944 Today’s post is a card that I have had designed in my head for awhile and decided to use it to make a masculine sympathy card.  A dear friend of our family tragically lost his 93 year old father in a car accident this week so I needed to make a sympathy card.  It seems like I never have sympathy cards on hand and that would make sense because that is when you need an unplanned card quickly.

For this card, I cut the Window Frames Framelits #129021 3 times using whisper white cardstock, Island Indigo cardstock textured with the Vine embossing folder#130492, and the Sycamore Street DSP #127540.  Both the Vine folder and the Sycamore Street DSP are free items from the Stampin Up Sale-A-Bration catalog.  I then cut each of the window frames and re-pieced them to form the window frame.  I stamped the sentiment using the So Sorry stamp set #126527 and I used the Pappilion Potpouri #123759 and the coordination butterfly punch to create the butterfly.  To finish the card added a small snip of the pool party ruffled ribbon and pearls to add dimension.

Artistic Beauty

2013_01_19SummerSilhouettesD0834Today’s card is another breathtaking beauty that Cammie made for her Summer Silhouttes workshop and for her card shop.  This card starts with a crumb cake base and stamped images from the Summer Silhouettes stamp set #126447 (available in the Stampin Up annual catalog) in crumb cake.  Cammie added a panel using the Stampin Up First Edition DSP #121878 and stamped the Summer Silhouettes leaf image in Versa Mark #102230 and heat embossed using the irridecent ice embossing  powder #101930 and sponged mambo, coral raspberry  ripple inks.  The panel was mounted on raspberry ripple card stock that she scalloped edged using the Large Scallop Edgelit #127019.  The sentimment was stamped and then punched using the modern label punch #119849 and then placed on the card and one side cut off.  The card was finshed by stamping and embossing a butterfly from the papillion potpourri stamp set #123759 and punched with the coordinating elegant butterfly punch #127536.

Floral Framelit Sunflower

Sunflowers are my all time favorite flower. When I looked at the catalog image of the Floral Fusions Framelits #127012 on page 191 of the Stampin Up Annual Catalog, my mind instantly thought I want to make a shaped sunflower card for my upcoming card cafe.  I used the largest framelit and cut a piece of folded 11 x5.5 inch daffodil paper and made the card base.  I then cut a single layer using the 2nd largest framelit and textured it with the new woodgrain textured embossing folder #127821 and layered it on the card base.  I then used the 3rd largest framelit in early espresso for the outer center piece and a piece of DSP from the International Bazaar DSP#126920.  I used the Papillion Potpourri #123759 stampset and the coordinating Elegant Butterfly punch #127526 and adorned it with 3 pearls.    I make so many cards and it seems like I am never thrilled with the results but this card just truly  makes me happy.

Papillion Potpourri Pinterest CASE

 Today starts my 27th year as a working gal.  I cannot believe it has been that long and hope retirement is just a few short years away!   I made this card to celebrate me! When I saw this card on Pinterest I dropped everything and CASEd (Copy and Share Everything) the card.  I loved everything about this card especially the bright colors mixed with the wonderful First Edition DSP #121878 and the butterflies.  The butterflies were stamped using the new Papillion Potpourri stamp set #123759 using black ink on various bright cardstock and then punched using the coordinating elegant butterfly punch #127526.  The banner was cut from the retired pennant die and then scored and folded to add interest and place the sentiment on.  The card  background is textured on crumbcake cardstock using the argyle folder #127750.

Make New Friends

 I wanted to showcase the new In Colors and mate them with an old color in the same color family.  As a bonus all the cards feature new Stampin Up product as as well.  Each card is using the new Apothecary Accents framelit #127003, the Bitty Banners Framelits #129267 and the coordinatinating Itty Bitty Banners stamp set #126257.  All have the new Elegant Butterfly Punch #127256 and the middle butterfly is stamped with the coordinating Papillion Potpourri #123759 stampset.  In each sample the middle butterfly is the featured in color.  In the Green family above the colors are Wild Wasabi, All New Gumball Green and Garden Green.

Following the same method as above but using the red family the colors are Riding Hood Red, All New Raspberry Ripple and Bravo Burgundy.

Next color family featured is the pink tones with Rose Red, All New Primrose Petals and Melon Mambo. Unlike the Reds being very different the pinks are similiar but a warmer tone than the Rose Red and softer than the mambo.

Next are the blues and I was very excited that Stampin Up was bring a new blue to the table because the blues were lacking.  I must sty though that these are super close.  First blue is the Not Quite Navy, then the All New Midnight Muse and the Night of Navy.  The Midnight Muse is deeper than the Not Quite Navy and richer than the Night of Navy.

Saving the best for last is the Summer Starfruit in the middle and to the left daffodil delight and lucky limeade to the right.

I hope you have enoyed the introduction of the new colors in the Stampin Up family because they will be around until 2014. OOps I also forgot to mention that the whisper white cardstock was embossed with one of the 3 new embossing folders.
