Long time no post, I know.... but I am back. I took a little time off from stamping this summer but I am back in the groove again.
This a halloween swap I created using kidoodles stamp set from Stampin Up. Tough to tell from photo but I embossed mask in black embossing powder and cut out and popped up on dimensional. I did not have any current halloween dsp, so I created my own with card stock and new embossing folder, called Chevron.
I made this card for a baby shower inspired by new ribbon in the occasion mini pleated satin ribbon- so fun. The stamp set is baby bundle from Stampin Up. I haven't used stamps to make a background in forever and I use to do it all the time when I first started stamping. A tip is to stamp in groups of three making triangles so it looks random.
Last week of sale-a-bration, it ends on March 31st. I decided to break into some new products- my turquoise embossing powder and pleated 3/8" satin ribbon in pear pizzazz. The stamp set is SAB set called sprinkled expressions and the dsp is also from SAB called everyday enchantment paper.
So, if you spend $50 you get a FREE SAB stamp set, paper and more....
Happy Spring! This is a card I made for a swap. I love sunflowers and these are super easy to make.
1) use scallop punch for daffodil delight cs, then use scissors to cut scallop lines
2) punch 1 -1/4 circle in chocolate chip and use white gel pen to make polka dot centers
3) I chose to use old olive grosgrain ribbon to make stems and leaves.
Sale-a-bration goes through the end of March, so still time to get some FREE sets with every $50 purchase.
This is one of my favorite SAB 2012 sets called Fresh Vintage. Plus you got to love Stampin Up's wonderful coordination of colors and designer papers. I used sale-a-bration everyday enchantment designer series paper and also SAB everyday enchantment ribbon pack too!
I couldn't decide on a sentiment, so decided to leave it as a blank card.
My brother's birthday is on Valentine's day, so had to do something different than red and hearts. He loves to snowboard so I used a retired stamp called snowboarder and lovely as a tree. I cased Brenda Westcom's card from stampin connection and changed out DSP to well worn.
It's the most wonderful time of the year, getting FREE stuff from Stampin up with every $50 you spend.
I used an exclusive SAB set called outline occasions. And of course you know I love using designer paper to get my color palette from. So, I used SAB designer series paper Every day enchanted elegance. I came up with simple easy card adding a little bit of pool party bakers twine.
Unfortunately I needed sympathy card for a friend who's father passed away. Inspired by Mocha morning speciality paper- which is raised velvet... it was a great base to keep it to a simple card. I used the designer frames embossing folder and just cut out the raised oval frame and stamped sentiment and used my extra large oval punch and done.
This is one of the cards we will be making at my upcoming open house SAB-occasion mini kick off.
I used an SAB set called sprinkled expressions that I embossed in white and then used the new blushing bride smooch spritz like emboss resist technique. I also used the new embossing folders adorning accent for the bottom border
Let's face the most cards we use are birthdays. So, love new sets to inspire me to make other cards. I got inspiration from a lot of exclusive Sale-a-bration 2012 sets from Stampin Up. The stamp set is called elementary elegance. I also got my color combo from SAB designer series paper called- everyday enchantment and everyday enchantment ribbon and brad pack. All things you can earn with every $50 spent during sale-a-bration January 24-March 31st.
Her is a peek at cards we will be doing for upcoming Sympathy card class on February 10th.

I have been stamping for about 6 years. I became a Stampin Up demo in September 2006 and love every minute of it. I enjoy scrapbooking, knitting and teaching swimming. I am married to a great guy who supports my crazy stamping habit. I have two great boys 13 and 11.
