When I first saw the Stampin Up Project Life Paper Clip Thinlits #138284 I saw a smiley face! I decided to make it so and used a hand punch to punch the eyes using lots of scraps. I used the Festive Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #141471 to texture the background and then I created a window using the Everyday Jars Framelits and then added my smiley faces before adding a window sheet to keep the smiles inside the jar. I stamped the jar lid using the Jar of Love #141587 stamp set and coordinating Everyday Jar Framelits. I added a sentiment from the Perfect Pennants retired stamp set from Stampin Up to complete this fun card.

As you may or may not know, both Cammie and I are batty over our big shot and we saw this adorable bat box on Shelli Gardner’s, CEO and founder of Stampin Up, blog that she made using the petal cone die. As blog master I kindly challenged Cammie to take Shellis bat box and create her own. In typical Cammie style she went batty and created not one bat box but 2. One using the perfect pennant die #123126 and one using the pillowbox die #113466
Cammies final 2 cards from our Hello Doily workshop are today’s post
The first card is a wonderful card using the paper lollies created using the amazing simply scored tool. The card base is 4.25 X 5.5 piece of Flirtatious DSP. Cut 2 scallop circles from the perfect pennant die out of pumpkin pie stamped with delicated doily. She then scored every valley using the simply scored board and sliced to the center of each scalloped circle. Then fan fold using the mountain/ valley folding technique and attach the two pieces together. Add centers from boho blossom punch and attach with designer printed brad. The wisteria lolly is a piece of Flirtatious DSP cut 1.25 x 12 and scored every quarter inch using the simply scored tool. The markers on the simply scored tool made came in handy! Then fan fold using the mountain/ valley folding technique and attach the two ends together to form a circle. The tag was created using 2 shapes from the matchbox die and word window punch.
Cammie knew she would share the love of the hello doily stamp at a workshop the moment she won the stamp from the prize patrol at the Stampin Up convention. Her card layout is simple but yields a magnificent card. Stamp the hello doily on very vanilla using pumpkin pie ink. The center is done using the build a blossom stamp (so saffron cardstock and more mustard ink) and coordinating build a blossom punch then attach an antique brad to the center. Add a strip more mustard paper using the dotted scalloped ribbon border punch and wrap with the espresso quilted ribbon from the holiday mini.
Bring on the holidays with the Perfect Pennant Die, Embossing Folder, Craft ink and a Brayer. Cammie went to town and brayered her Christmas cards for my pennant workshop. What a sweet sister I have to contribute cards all the way from Tulsa OK for my workshop in Ohio. That is truly sharing what you love! Even better, the cards came ready to assemble no work required. So we got to OOH and Ahh over her fabulous cards while we applied the adhesive and assembled the cards. The wreath card was by far the crowd favorite!
For each card, the base was done by rolling craft ink onto the specific embossing folder and then running thru the bigshot. Wow! Same technique different folder and oh so different. These cards bring an end to the pennant on parade workshop. Stay tuned tomorrow – its the 25th and as promised we have the results of the Christmas card challenge.
