This past week, I had my down line meeting for Creative Crafters' Stamping to Share. We had lots of fun (as always) and learned so many new things. There is business training, recognition, a swap and stamping; of course there is stamping! Sue McNeill coordinated the project this month and she taught us how to make Faux Embossed Leather based on a Faux Embossed Leather Tutorial that she learned from SU demonstrator Sharon Field. Sue used the technique to create a gift card holder and I'm showing you the one I made the night of our demo meeting. Isn't it to die for gorgeous? I will definitely be sharing this project with my stamp clubs this fall.
I also want to share the swap cards with you. Our theme for June's demo swap was "Something Summery." Below are the cards that were made:
And, lastly, my card for the swap
I used the Summer Mini Designer Series Paper called Tropical Oasis and cut out the Pumpkin Pie flowers. I thought they looked really exotic against a black backdrop. The sentiment is from the stamp set called Teeny Tiny Wishes. (A set that never seems to leave my stamp table! I use it constantly!) The Scallop Oval Frame die created the Whisper White frame and I accented the card with Earth Elements Brads and Pumpkin Pie Corduroy Buttons.
Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!!
