#1 Stampers Meeting, Make n Takes & Team Swaps

One of my favorite things about my Stampin Up business is getting together and stamping with friends, especially my downline team members. We share business tips, stamping ideas, swaps and also have yummy snacks and fun door prizes during our get togethers.

This month Teresa Fisher shared a make n take project with us using the Magical Mermaid stamp set. Her sample was gorgeous. Unfortunately I messed mine up and ended up coming home and having to re-do my card. However, I did use the same colors and cardstocks of Teresas and I loved the colors she chose. Bermuda bay, berry burst and tempting turquoise. The colors really look magical together.

 It was Teresas idea to color the ends of the hair in bermuda bay. How cool is that? I love it!

This is a photo of some of my team from the meeting that night. I remembered to get a photo after most of the girls had already left. Next time, I will have to tie a string around my finger or something, so I remember to get photos early. By the way, that's cute little Teresa to the left of me, in the white sweater.

I also wanted to take time to share of few of the amazing swaps that the girls created. The theme was fall cards and the girls did a fabulous job as usual.

Wood Words Variation

I have a quick post on a simple variation of the Wood Words stamp set that I used on my previous blog post. I used the same card fold and colors as well as the same two stamp sets, Wood Words and Label Me Pretty.

I only changed a few things to make this card look a little different.

I added the beautiful cluster of flowers from the Wood Words set in crumb cake ink and I also used the new Wood Textures designer paper stack.

The same simple Z fold- you can check out the blog post previous to this one for the measurements and tips.

I also used very vanilla cardstock on the inside of this one.

Thought I'd share this one with you, as you can basically use all the same supplies.

I just received my box full of more new Stampin Up stamps and accessories, so I will be playing with my goodies tonight.

Stay tuned for some new creations coming soon!

Thanks again for stopping by.

Rooster Note from the Wood Words stamp set

The card I am sharing today is a simple Z fold card made with the Wood Words stamp set. I think this set should be called Farm Fresh, because its all the things that we would see on a farm, including a rooster!

I wanted the card to look very rustic and earthy. So, I used the colors, early espresso, crumb cake, cherry cobbler and whisper white.

 The Z fold on this card is very simple and easy. I folded the card base (11" x 4 1/4") in half, then I simply folded the front flap of the card up to meet the fold on top.

The Hardwood background stamp was used to give the card that rustic bark look. I also used the new Label Me Pretty stamp set along with the Pretty Label Punch to give this card an interesting element on the flap.

A little bit of burlap ribbon adds to the perfect rustic farm look.

I also used the Stitched Shapes framelits in the oval shape on the early espresso cardstock. This pulls the card together quite nicely.

Got to love a card with a cherry cobbler rooster on it, for sure :)
