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.

Sunny Blended Bloom

Cammie loves to create beach scenes and today’s post is a real beauty.2015_08_09DSCI0820 Cammie used her master sponging skills to create the clouds and the sandy beach.  She added the bright “sun using the Blended Bloom #135906 single stamp.  She used different color combinations to create the gorgeous image. She finished the card by adding the sea life image from the Wetlands #126695.

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!
