When the Stampin Up Idea Book and Catalog comes out, Cammie and I spend hours on the phone and looking through the IBC together. We choose cards we like to use for inspiration and today’s post is just that. Cammie used the card on page 69 in the current IBC as her inspiration for these baby cards. How great to use the same design and switch color to create a gender appropriate card.
Before I post Cammie’s cards for the pennant on parade workshop, I thought I would add a very creative card that Cammie came up with using scraps on from her table. This little angel is oh so sweet and quite easy to re-create. Tomorrow, I will wrap up the pennant workshop by posting all 3 of Cammies very creative cards using a technique that will knock your socks off.
One of my customers loves cheez-its and it has become a tradition to see how I can decorate the cheez-it box. This was a very late night project so it had to be quick but in theme. So I created a belly band complete with Rudoph from the pennant punch. Look closely because his antlers are tangled up with Christmas lights (SHHH it is a non-SU product) but is a very cute touch if I say so myself! Stay tuned for a pennant surprise before I begin to post Cammie’s 3 very unique pennant cards.
I used the new snowburst embossing folder on pg 33 of the holiday mini catalog http://126.96.36.199/catalogs/flash/en-US/2011_ldse3_holidaymini/index.html as the background for this pennant card. The white picket fence was created using the key tag punch. Stacked 3 embossed pennants to create the tree. Finished it off by adding random rhinestones. This card was a big hit and put everyone in the holiday spirit at least for the moment! Tomorrows card will be another Christmas card using the pennant on parade stamp set.

This card was created because one of my favorite customers (who shall remain nameless) wanted to learn how to create a pinwheel from paper. She was happy as can be to learn how easy peasy it is to create a pinwheel from two sided paper. I hope she takes my challenge and makes pinwheels in all sizes. How simple is this card? Go ahead and start making pinwheels you’ll be glad you did. Send me your pinwheel creations and I’ll post them. More pennants tomorrow.

Samples from my pennant workshop continue with a simple design that is heavy on the layers. Today’s card is nautical themed and was designed for a new baby boy. But swapping out the sentiment it can easily be adapted for a masculine birthday, a summer card, or even use it on a scrapbook page as an embellishment. I love the monochromatic star background and the use of the tasteful trim die to create the wave.
I hope you are not getting pennanted out because I still have more to come.
Yesterday’s post focused on Christmas cards using old and new products and today, the theme is being carried on. Since I make over 150 Christmas cards each year and cannot make the same one over and over so , I like to start early and have some cards that are simple to reproduce and this card fits that bill. This card uses the same retired Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper and the new blossom boquet triple layer punch.
Cardbase: Very Vanilla cardstock #101650 $8.50 textured with the petals a plenty embossing folder #116824 $7.95
Layer1: Thin strip of Cherry cobbler cardstock #119685 $6.95
Layer2: Punch 4 squares from designer series paper using the 1 1/4″ punch #119685 $15.95 to form the packages and punch 4 bows from coordinatiating cardstock (Cherry cobbler cardstock #119685 $6.95 and Old olive #100702 $6.95) to form the package. Stamp sentimemt using the pennant parade stamp set #122742 $16.95 and tie with a piece of cherry cobler bakers twine #123125 $2.95
Sweet and simple and by chaning the paper selection you can change the whole look and feel of the card. Or step the card up and add some rhinestone bling to each center of the bows to give an even fancier look.
