Out of Africa

2014_05_18PBS-Out of Africa inspiration (1) Cammie was inspired by the movie Out of Africa for creating this card.  Cammie masterfully created the African Sunset and then added the   tree from the Thoughts and Prayers #127805 stamp set.  She added the giraffe silhouette using the Zoo Review #122199 stamp set.  She finished the card by adding a trio of flourishes from the Lovely Romance #130267 stamp set.

The Zoo Review stampset is currently on the going going gone list and will not be available after 1 June.

Mirror Mirror

2014_01_19DSCI0443 Today’s post is a card I created in Cammie’s brayered class.  When I saw this card I thought no way will I be able to create this. Well I was wrong and pleasantly surprised with the finished product.  Cammie pulled out all the advanced brayering tricks with this card and it was fun. We masked and brayered the sunset and the water.  Then we sponged the grass.  We embossed the zebra using the Zoo Review stamp set #122199.  To get the mirrored zebra we stamped on the plastic sheet from the stamp a ma jig #101046.  Finally to finish the main panel I added ripples using the uni-ball Signal gel pen #105021.

Zoopendous Polar Bear

2013_12_28DSCI0444 Words cannot describe this beautiful card we made in Cammie’s brayed workshop.  When I saw it I thought there was no way that I could ever make this card and believe it or not we all completed them and were happy with the finished card.  I will not go into the specific how to details of this card but it included brayering, sponging, masking, and embossing.  We used the Zoo Review #122199 stampset for the adorable polar bear and the Everything Eleanor #124164 stampset for the flourishes. After creating the panel we added it to a marina mist textured layer with petals a plenty folder #116824 and then on an Island Indigo Card base layer.  Simply stunning results that has moved the Zoo Review to my wish list.

Frozen State of Mind

2013_12_06DSCI0445 Today’s post is a fabulous card that Cammie featured in her brayered Christmas card workshop last summer.  To create the snow slopes Cammie used the masking technique and sponging. The lone penquin is stamped using the Zoo Review #122199 stamp set.  We added the iceburg by handcutting them from whisper white cardstock and vellum.  She used a retired Northern Frost snowflake strip and the fabulous silver foil paper #132178 and a large pearl.  This card absolutely gives me chills and I could not believe I was able to create it.

Wish Big

2013_01_29zooDSCI0936 Today’s card is the final card (for now) that Cammie made using her Zoo Review stampset #122199.  This set is great because it can be colored in and then the animals pattern can be carried over to the background.  Cammie used the curly label punch #119851 to create this wild giraffe-like background.  Be sure to check out the Zoo Review stampset and hundreds of other stamps, embellishments in the all new 2013-2014 Stampin Up annual catalog.

Zebra lovers beware

2013_01_30DSCI0938 Cammie loves to use Black and White in her card design and once she pulled out her Zoo Review stamp set #122199 and saw the super cute zebra, she started creating the Black and white zebra background.  The Zoo Review stamp set is available in the Stampin Up 2013-2014 annual catalog.  This card is so cute and fun to give for any occasion to kids or grown ups.

Wild Thing

2013_01_28zooDSCI0937Today’s post will take you to the wild side and just might prompt you to go to your local zoo.  Cammie used the Zoo Review stampset #122199 to create this card.  She used all 5 images from the set and if that is not wild enough she colored them with her Stampin Up markers and blender pens. She mounted the squares on a basic grey honeycomb embossed #129378 background.  To be honest, the Zoo Review stampset was a set that I overlooked until I saw what Cammie has done with this set (more designs coming)that I was happy that Stampin Up carried this set over in the all new Stampin Up 2013-2014 Annual Catalog and have added it to my wish list.
