Wedding Card ~ CASE’d

CASE’d Card 2 of 6 I received as a swap at the 2012 Stamp’ Up! convention this year.  Beautifully designing wedding card!  I love the elegant look of the whisper white and very vanilla.  I decided to share this card with the ladies at my August card class!  It was perfect timing as 3 of the ladies at class have an upcoming wedding to attend!   The card on the right (and the one featured below) is my version of the swap.  The card on the left is the swap I received from Christine Burbidge-Boyd in Lacombe, AB! Thank you Christine for the beautiful swap!

Baby Card ~ CASE’d

I received the card on the left as a swap at the 2012 Stamp’ Up! convention this year.  Since I will be a Grandma in November, this was the perfect swap card for me!  I decided to share this card with the ladies at my August card class!  It was a huge hit!  When I was CASE’ing this card, I realized that I did not have the same stamp sets showcased on the swap.  So, I had to change up the card a bit.  The card on the right (and the one featured below) is my version of the swap.  Thank you to Donna App for the wonderful idea!

Christmas in August

Ok…I know it’s a little early for Christmas but I wanted to share a card I designed for a Christmas swap at the 2012 Stampin’ Up! convention.  The products used in this card are from the Holiday Catalog which runs from August 1, 2012 through January, 2, 2013. The designer series paper is the Candlelight Christmas paper on page 4 of the catalog…its my fav!!!  I just love the designs and colors in the DSP!! The stamp set is called “Evergreen.” There are 3 different stamps that you can use in the “Evergreen” set to obtain the overlay look that I have in the card. I am loving the Christmas products so watch for more Christmas designs! 🙂

Friendship Gift

This year I was able to attend my very first Stampin’ Up! convention in Salt Lake City, Utah!  WAHOO!! I designed this picture as a gift for my 3 roomies!  I wanted to use the stamp set “Postage Due” mainly because it has the number “3” on it which would be a perfect reminder of the “3” roomies I had.  🙂  The background paper is Fan Fair DSP.  I inked up the “postage due” stamp in soft suede and then colored flower (over the soft suede) using a red riding hood marker…then I stamped the image. I just loved all of the colors in this design and so did my roomies!

Supplies include:
5 x 7 Picture frame
Fan Fair DSP
2 1/2″ Circle Punch
Postage Due and From my Heart Stamp Sets
New button sliders (for the ribbon)
Always Artichoke seam binding ribbon
Victoria crochet ribbon
Cardstock:   Whisper White, Early Espresso and Midnight Muse
Ink:  Midnight Muse, Soft Suede, and Red Riding Hood

Floral District

This card was designed for as a swap for our July demonstrator meeting.  The theme of the swap was “summer” so  I decided that I wanted to do something with flowers.  This layout is similar to a previous card that I designed several months ago.  I love the look of the elegant bouquet embossing folder on whisper white cardstock. I cut out and layered several different flowers from the Blossom Party Die. The designer series paper is called Floral District and is new in the 2012-2013 catalog.

Supplies include:
Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder
Scalloped Oval Punch
Large Oval Punch
Floral District DSP
Glimmer Brads
1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Pool Party, Rich Razzelberry, So Safron and Calyspo Coral

Blooming with Kindness

This card was designed for an organized swap at the 2012 Stampin Up convention.  I love flowers!! This stamp set is one of my favorites from the new catalog.  For this card, I stamped the image in Marina Mist and then used the Elegant Eggplant marker to apply ink in a random fashion over the top of the marina mist. The designer series paper, Twitterpated, provides the back drop. Of course I also used the new fancy fan embossing folder on the green card stock. It was a hit at the swap! 🙂
