Serene Thinking of You


I used 2 pieces of the Stampin Up Serene Scenery #141642 DSP to create the background for this card.  I then just stamped the image and sentiment from the Wetlands stamp set #126695.  I added a piece of linen thread to separate the 2 panels and add texture.

Sunset on the Wetlands


Today’s post is another one of Cammie’s beautiful inking techniques-direct to paper, brayering and sponging.  She used the Wetlands #126695 stampset from Stampin Up to create the marshy look and a perfect all occasion card.

Just Beachy

One of Cammie’s happiest places on earth is to be on a beach.  She loves to spend her vacations in Jamaica so her beach scenes are naturally realistic. For this card she created it 3 ways just by changing out the sentiment or ribbon to make it look different.  She created the beach scene and added the birds from the Wetlands #126695.  She added the big starfish from the Stampin Up Picture Perfect #140520 stamp set and hand cut it out  and placed it on the beach.

AZ Sunset

2015_02_07IMG_6901 My husband and I recently went to AZ to visit his mother and her husband. Anyone who knows me knows that I love cacti-especially “cacti with arms”.  Seeing these saguaro cacti in a quintessential AZ sunset was on my bucket list and when we went to Tuscon I got to see these beauties thriving complete with the AZ sunset. So my post today is the thank you that I made for my mother-in-law.  My sunset was brayered and sponged using lessons that my sister Cammie taught me awhile back.  I am not comfortable with brayering but I think this card turned out pretty well.  I added the Saguaro cacti from the Stampin Up Yee-Haw polymer stamp set #138107 and the desert brush was added using the Wetlands #126695.  Thanks for a great trip and beautiful memories and wonderful weather!

Beautiful Transformation

2014_10_04DSCI0757 This card is truly an example of how Cammie can take the ugly goose from the Stampin Up Wetlands #126697 stamp set and transform it into a beautiful swan and a gorgeous all purpose card with her master braying skills.  The details that Cammie can achieve through brayering is amazing. Her brayering cards really take your breath away and I look forward to receiving them in the mail.

Wetlands CASE

2014_09_13IMG_4709 Today’s post is a CASE (Copy and Share Everything) from page 173 of the Stampin Up 2014-2015 annual catalog. I created the water scene using the Wetlands stamp set #1266697 onto a very vanilla label cut from the Labels Collection #125598.  I wrapped the label with a piece of gold metallic bakers twine #132975 and then popped it on a piece to the Typeset DSP that I “grunged up” using the Gorgeous Grunge #130517 stampset and then added a banner hand cut from a scrap of Moonlight DSP paper pack #133701 and a piece of Retro Washi Tape #133301.

I often use the CASE concept when I am just tired of trying to come up with a new design and I need a card quickly like a  masculine get well card.  My go to place to CASE a card is from the Stampin Up catalog because it has great samples with products that I probably own!

Fun Fold card

2014_07_23IMG_3611 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.

Wheatfield card

2014_06_20Wetlands + Grunge=wheatfield under full moon 001 Today’s card is another one of Cammie’s beautiful brayered cards and brings me back (way back) to our youth when we lived in North Dakota, where wheatfields are plentiful.  After brayering, she stamped the Gorgeous Grunge #130517 in the moon. She stamped the wheat using Wetlands #126697 and then sponged around it to create the shadow.  She double mounted the main panel and then used the chevron border punch to create the lattice style border.

Wonderful Wetlands

2014_06_04DSCI0532 Today’s post is a beautifully brayered masterpiece that Cammie made at her recent brayering workshop. For the razzleberry background Cammie used the now retired Daydream wheel to add a monochromatic strip down the left hand side.  She then created  panel by brayering the background and the she used the Wetlands #126697 stamp for her grass.  To finish the card, Cammie used the Mosaic Madness #130249 stampset and the coordinating punch to make the center focal piece amidst her button accent pieces.

If you like all the brayering pieces that Cammie does then be sure to include the Wetlands stampset on your wishlist because it makes the perfect grass in her beachy scenes.
