6/11 Stamping to Share Demo Meeting

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!!

It never ceases to amaze and please me to see my project so beautifully photographed on your site. All of our projects look so pretty due to your care in photography. Usually things are prettier in person, but these are gorgeous! Thank you so much for doing this, Kay. It is a joy just to be invited to your demo group meetings!
