The third card we did for our Stamp-A-Stack used an older set called Aviary. It uses non-traditional Valentine colors of Baja Breeze and Night of Navy. I used to say that Baja Breeze was my favorite Stampin Up color but I gave up saying that because I have about 10 favorite Stampin Up colors now.
Last night I had a Valentine’s Stamp-A-Stack. The first card they made use Red Glimmer Paper. How can anyone make a Valentine without using Red Glimmer Paper. They just go together. The Whisper White card stock in the middle was embossed with the heart border from a Big Shot embossing folder set called Adorning Accent Folders. It is a very simple card but I love the bling.
On Wednesday, January 23rd at 6:00 PM I will be having a Stamp-a-Stack. You can come and make 6 Valentines for $12.00. There will be three different designs and you will make 2 of each. Pre-payment is due by January 20th. For more information you can email, call me or leave a comment on this post. Space is limited and is on a first come first serve basis. I hope to see you there!
Another card we made used the stamp set called Field Flowers. I love this stamp set because it is a two step set. You stamp the stems and the flowers separately. It reminds me of visiting my Grandparents in Vermont. The had 100’s of acres of land surrounding their house filled with flowers that looked like these. This card is one of those you can make in a couple of minutes when you are in a hurry. Very easy! We used Soft Suede and Cajun Craze.
I am honored to belong to a group of fellow demonstrators who are so talented. We share many thoughts and ideas together. Most are stamp related but not everything. A member of this group organized a swap amongst the rest of us. I don’t usually participate in swaps but these ladies are so talented that I wanted to. My card used a variety of stamps sets. The wreath is from Daydream Medallions. The ornament is from Ornament Keepsakes and the saying is from Greetings of the Season. You can’t really tell by the picture but the ornament was put on with Dimensionals so it gives it a little depth. I embossed everything in gold with Stampin Up’s embossing powder. Remind me to show you the difference between SU’s embossing powder and another company’s powder. I will have to get Rob to use his fancy camera for the close up picture. You wouldn’t think something like embossing powder would make a difference but it was amazing how much better SU’s powder came out.
This is the second card we made at the Christmas Club meeting. As most of you know, I love my Big Shot and I almost always have a card that uses at least one product from the Big Shot collection. I found this card on Pinterest and it uses multiple products so I had to CASE it!
Here is one of the cards we made at the last Christmas Card Club meeting we had. I used the stamp set Evergreen which is a two step stamp set. After stamping the tree we used the Labels Collections of framelits to cut it out and then used the next larger size to cut out a piece of Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. We then pierced the Label using the Paper Piercing Pack from the Holiday Catalog. The Designer Series Paper called Be Of Good Cheer from the Annual Catalog was cut on an angle and the sentiment is from Petite Pairs.
