I recently needed a sympathy card for a sweet friend who lost her father. I wanted to make a pretty card to lift her spirits. Typically sympathy cards tend to be in subdued colors so I opted to use a brighter scheme for my card. I used the Stampin Up Summer Silhouettes stamp set #126447 to create a collage of flowers and filled the space using old olive ink and a sponge. I added a tag using the Scalloped Tag Topper #133324 punch and a sweet bow using the 1/4 inch Mellon Mambo #134566 cotton ribbon from the Stampin Up annual catalog. The sentiment is from a retired Stampin Up set.

I love this card because it reminds me of the Bob Dylan song: “Blowing in the Wind”. Cammie combined the Everything Eleanor #124164 and fully utilized the Summer Silhouettes #126447 stamp sets to create this beauty. As Cammie often does she created the card 2 ways. She just switched the orientation and changed the look. The “sky” background and edges were masterfully sponged and she finished the card with a yummy piece of Blackberry Bliss #133668 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon. The best part about this card is that I got it in the mail from Cammie. I must say it is a gorgeous piece of work!
Today’s card is one of the cards I made for my envelope punch board class. For this class I wanted to show why it is worthwhile to invest in the Stampin Up envelope punch board #133774. I put off buying the punch board because I thought it was just another tool to collect dust and really I make standard cards and buy standard envelopes and I was happy. The my sister and Stampin Up upline told me you need it because you can make boxes, cards, treat bags and lots more than envelopes so I took the plunge. Of course, I got it and it remained in the box unopened in a drawer for months. So I decided to challenge myself to have a workshop to feature and use the envelope board. I was scared because I did not want to disappoint my customers so I googled “how to use my Stampin Up board” and life has not been the same since. There was so many samples that I became overwhelmed and had a very successful workshop. So over the next month or so I will be showing the stuff I made with this fabulous must have tool!
I saw this card in the Stampin Up annual catalog on pg 130. It made me giddy that I could use the envelope punch board to make a card. I used the Naturals Composition DSP (no longer available) as the card base and them just used the punch board to notch the sides of the card. I then punched butterflies from 3 shades of cardstock using the Elegant Butterfly #127526 punch. I stamped random images from the Summer Silhouettes #126447 and the Wetlands stamp set #126697 and added a Curly Cute (no longer available) sentiment hand cut banner.
Happy Mother’s Day. For today’s card I started with a card base from the Watercolor Wonder Designer Note cards #133362 available in the Stampin Up occasions catalog. I then stamped the leaves from the Summer Silhouettes #126447 and the sentiment from the Perfectly Penned #122892 stampset. I added life like daffodils made from daffodil delight cardstock punched with the Petite Petals punch #133155 and the Boho Blossoms punch #119858. The flower centers are punched in Tangerine tango using the Owl Builder punch #118074.
Today’s card is a fun card Cammie made using the split panel card layout where she added a whisper white panel textured with the Square Lattice folder #119976 and a piece of pink and white gingham from the Gingham Garden DSP #129310 in the Stampin Up annual catalog. The center oval focal piece was stamped using the Summer Silhouettes #126447 stamp set. Cammie finished the card using 2 punched word window pieces #119857 and basic pearls #119247.
Cammie really thought outside the “stamp set” with today’s card. She used the Summer Silhouettes stamp set #126447 from the Stampin Up annual catalog to make the gorgeous firework for her patriotic card. She used basic rhinestones and colored them using re-inkers and added them to the card to make it pop. If that was not enough bling Cammie mounted the firework centerpiece on top of the silver glimmer paper #124005 and added a hand cut banner to add the celebrate sentiment. To give it a patriotic flair the whisper white layer was embossed with the stripes folder #123128. This card truly made Uncle Sam proud to be an American!
Today’s card is swarming with lots of fun Stampin Up products. The background paper fooled me. For the life of me I could not figure out what DSP Cammie used. I should have known better- She created it herself using the Summer Silhouettes #126447 and then she ran it through the Honey comb folder #129378that was inked in black. For the Mason jar, Cammie used the soon to be retiring Stamp set and framelit Perfectly Preserved #126692and then brayered various shades of yellow to create the honey. Cammie added bees that she stamped from the retiring Nature Walk #121997 stampset and then hand cut them and scattered them about. She finished the card by adding linen thread to both the jar and the card front.
Today’s post is the final card in Cammie’s Summer Silhouette’s card cafe. This card is another example of a card that can be used for any occasion just by swapping out the sentiment. Personally I think it would make a great sympathy card. The card base is Island Indigo and then Crumb Cake. The DSP is from the Summer Smootches #125409 in the Stampin Up annual catalog. The circular focal point is stamped images from the Summer Silhouettes stamp set #126447. The flowers are stamped and then hand cut and popped on the card. I love the simplicity of this design and may just CASE this one!
Today’s post is a real bright and cheery card that Cammie made using the Summer Silhouettes stamp set #126447. She made 5 panels and stamped the same image on each panel using 5 different bright inks. The panels were arranged black cardstock and edged with the scallop border punch. She added a birthday greeting and a few itty bitty flowers. Quick, easy and fun!
Today’s card is another card Cammie made using the Summer Silhouettes stamp set #126447 from Stampin Up. The 2 background rectangles were created using the itty bitty flower punch #118309. The main panel is cut from the Apothacary Framelits #127003 and then stamped using the Summer Silhouettes stamp set and embellished with the Beautiful Wings sizzlet #118138 and the branch from the Bird Builder punch #118138 and the beautiful dahlia #127556 and pearls #119247.
All the details on this card make it a striking card to send to someone very special. Cammie made it a thank you but it could easily be adapted to a birthday, friendship or thinking of you card just by swapping out the sentiment.
