Stamping Meetings

Awesome Swaps from our Team Meeting

I want to share a few of the swaps that members of my team made for our #1 Stampers Meeting Swap. The theme for this swap was unique folds. The girls came up with some great designs, as you will see.

The photo quality isnt the best. I took the pictures in a hurry, before they were swapped out. But they are still pretty awesome.

Here's the first one, made by Sue Brennan

New Stamp Set Sneak Peek & #1 Stampers Meeting Peeks!

My #1 Stampers team meeting was a few days ago. I always look forward to these get togethers with all the amazing and fun women on my team. We meet, chat, stamp, swap and eat. What could be better than that?

This month, my friend Kris Benkeser volunteered to do a demonstration on little girl dress up cards. Kris used the Layering Circle and Layering oval framelits as well as the New Stitched Shapes framelits, to design these sweet dresses.They were so adorable. I have a photo, but its not the best. Trust me these are so much cuter in person.

It was Kris's first time ever to do a demonstration. She did an amazing job!

Here's two more:

 We had so many great swaps as well as a few great make n takes and a NEW "In Color" book mark chart that we created that night.

Here's a look at the oh so pretty make n take designed by Kathy Sullivan. She used the Timeless Textures stamp set on this card, with some dazzling diamonds glitter applied to the middle of the flowers to sparkle it up.

IMG_4470

So, two of the Make n Takes that I designed were made with new stamp sets that will be debuted in the NEW Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Catalog! I will share one of them with you now. This card is made with the Eastern Palace stamp set suite. And I have some good news for you.... It will be available for Pre Order on May 1st! So, you will be able to get it before the new catalog is released in June! Whoo HOO!

Talk about a gorgeous set! Not only is it gorgeous, but it has so many stamps and dies, that the possibilities are endless! Did you notice a new color? Yes, its one of the new "In Colors" - Fresh Fig!

IMG_4492

Ok, I'm going to show you some display boards from my recent Stampin' Up! trip to Virginia. These are some of the actual stamped images and dies in the suite. I will be sending out ordering info in 5 more days!

Here's a few display board samples to get you excited!

Stampin Up Big On Birthdays greeting card

Here's a quick and cute card made with the Big On Birthdays stamp set in the Stampin Up Occasions Catalog.

This is one of the cards we made at our last #1 Stampers Meeting. The Big On Birthdays set is a great stamp set to use as the main focal point on a birthday card. The greetings are so big and so fun that you don't really need any other stamps to accompany your design.

I used the the fun colors of emerald envy and watermelon wonder. Watermelon wonder will be retiring soon, so be sure to stock up on the cardstock and re-inkers before they are gone.

IMG_3667

The emerald envy ribbon and enamel shapes really stand out on this bright and cheery birthday card.

Of course I had to add the new Falling Petals emboss folder in the background. I love how the embossing gives the card some texture and dimension.

I appreciate you visiting my blog today. Be sure to keep checking back for more creative ideas!

Card Class Card- Special Reason Stamp set

I want to share a quick card that we made at my Card Class last week. I used the Special Reason stamp set and Stylish Stems coordinating dies.

I also used whisper white, mint macaron, and rich razzleberry cardstocks and inks. The paper behind the diecut flower is the beautiful Blooms and Bliss designer series paper.

IMG_3494

This birthday card was super easy to design and I love the peek a boo window that the flower framelit forms on this card.

I also used the Petal Burst emboss folder and the Classic Label punch to punch out the greeting, which I trimmed on the right side to be in line with the edge of the card.

The ladies at card class loved the look and the quick and easy way this card went together.

I hope you all like it as well!

Thanks again for stopping by my blog today.

Until the next ime...

Holly Berry Happiness Christmas Card and a couple of Wedding Photos to share

I'm a little behind in my blogging since my trip to Florida. But, I'm ready to get caught up today.

I have a darling Christmas card to share with you. Its made with the "Holly Berry Happiness" stamp set and coordinating "Holly Berry" Punch.

I also have a few Wedding photos to share from my godson's wedding on Pensacola Beach. I'll share those at the end of my post.

We made this card at our team meeting a couple of weeks ago. Its actually pretty simple and it uses a variety of cool products.

IMG_1200
 I used rose red and wild wasabi cardstock and inks for this card. The white embossed background of this card is actually the new "Fancy Frost Specialty Paper" from the Holiday Catalog. I also used a sheet of this specialty paper to lay the card on to photograph it. Its so, so pretty.

IMG_1202

Check out the gold foil "braid." I made this by using a strip of the gold foil sheets and embossed it in the new "Cable Knit" embossing folder. It turned out really cool. The holly is punched out from the "Holly Berry" punch.

IMG_1201

I hope this inspires you to make a perfectly quaint and lovely card to send to your family and friends during the Christmas season.

One more thing... I promised to share a couple of wedding photos:

Here is Zach and Emily during the ceremony, under the beautiful arbor that we made from an old ladder.

IMG_1724

Zachs sister, Megan was one of the beautiful bridesmaids. She's the first one from the left.

IMG_1717

Zach, anxiously awaiting his bride.

A gorgeous photo from the reception, taken in the rain, by the photographer.

Congratulations again to Zach and Emily. I was so honored to be part of this special day.

Until the next time...
