Mermaid Kisses

2018_08_08IMG_0786 This card has a whole lot of layering to create the realistic sealife.  Cammie started with the now retired Watercolor Wash background stamp and then added the layers of seaweed using the Sea of Textures #146485 stamp set from Stampin Up.  The mermaid was stamped using the Magical Mermaid #144014 stamp set and then hand cut out and popped on the seaweed.  The sentiment is from the Magical Mermaid stamp set from Stampin Up and the bubbles were punched out using 3/4 inch circle punch.

Toad-ally in love

2017_02_08img_0479

For today’s card, Cammie drew her inspiration from one of her other Valentines.  Cammie  created layers using inks and stamps; shetextured the background using the Water Color Wash #139538 background stamp and the Gorgeous Grunge # 130514 stampset. She stamped and punched hearts from various stamp sets. She added a thin strip of retired Valentine DSP behind the toad panel. For the focal block Cammie used the toad from the Stampin Up  Sublime #139309 stamp set and colored the image with the Stampin Write Markers and sealed his lips with a punched foil heart. What a toad-ally cute Valentine!

Valentine Treats

Today’s post is the Valentine treats that Cammie made for her husbands office.  She made the pouch using lots of texture. Cammie likes to create layers using ink and that minimizes the bulk.   Cammie textured the background using the Water Color Wash #139538 background stamp and the Gorgeous Grunge # 130514 stampset. She stamped and punched hearts from various stamp sets.  For the jar, Cammie used the Stampin Up Jar of Love #141587 stamp set and the coordinating Everyday Jar Framelits #141490 and the ribbon around the jar is actually a piece of retired DSP. She filled the jar with lots of different hearts and tucked a chocolate heart in the back pouch.

White Christmas

2017_01_25img_0376It is never too soon to start thinking and making Christmas cards which is why I always post a Christmas card on the 25th of each month.  So today’s Christmas card is a real beauty by Cammie.  She textured the background using the Watercolor Wash  #138704 Background stamp from Stampin Up. The trees from the now retired Wonderland stamp set were embossed in white. To create the snowbanks Cammie used the stem from the Sunshine Sayings #141591 stampset. The expression from the retired My Hero stamp set was embossed in silver.
