6/12 Stamp Something Summery Demo Swap

 Last week I had my monthly Stamping to Share Demo meeting with the ladies in my group. The card above was our project card that Chris was kind enough to share with us. Isn't it lovely? You are getting a sneak peak at a new paper and a new punch that will debut in our upcoming catalog! It's just soooo gorgeous!! I can hardly wait for my customers to attend my New Catalog Pick Up Day on June 30! You will LOVE IT!! All the demos that I am friends with are LOVIN' it!! (As a demonstrator, I just LOVE the perk of getting it early . . . thank you, SU!!) Thanks Chris for a great project demo!

Dawn looked in the Summer Mini for some summer inspiration. I love the perfectly torn layers accented with the Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine. Dawn used textured paper, too . . . love the way that ups the elegance!

This is Cindy's first swap with us and I think she did a GREAT job with the slide out seed packet. She is a brand new demonstrator and is still working on her punch wish list! I'm sure after trimming out by hand with a scissors 18 For You flowers that Fancy Flower punch may be on her next order!! lol! Great job, Cindy and welcome to Stamping to Share!

Lynn is also a brand new demonstrator and she had so much fun casing Dawn Olchefske in making these adorable cards that she made everybody two cards! What a great surprise for us! Thanks, Lynn, and welcome to Stamping to Share!

Katherine just finished up teaching full-time Kindergarten and even though she is a super busy mom, she still found the time to create this GORGEOUS card! One of the great things about SU is that we have a whole wonderful demo only website to case cards from and Katherine picked this card by Sandy Mathis to case. We all LOVED it!

Nothing says summer like a lime flavored ice cream pop! Angie created orange, lime and strawberry pops for her swap. Of course I had to have lime . . . one of my very favorite summer flavors! Don't suppose you are having any cravings, eh Angie? Pickles with that ice cream pop? lol!

Can you imagine making 18 swap cards that look like this? Nope . . . I can't either!! Mary is an extremely talented stamper for only learning to stamp this past fall and only joining as a demonstrator this past February! What a creative asset to the Stamping to Share team!!

Clean and simple is what this style is all about and Sharon Merritt pulls it off beautiful with Flight of the Butterfly. What a versatile stamp set, I'm so glad it wasn't retired. This set easily puts a little summer fun in your cards and scrapbook pages . . . a must have stamp set in my book!

Beach sand, blue sky and water, warm setting sun . . . that's the perfect setting for an "adult" summer drink! Makes me wish we were having a warmer day! Chris did her summer card quite successfully!! Now, just need to get a few ingredients, get my blender out . . . . ahhhhh.

Kathy's card is perfect for all the summer those summer events that call for Best Wishes! Graduations, bridal showers, and weddings would all welcome a pretty card like this! The perfect quick and simple card that will have your friends oohing and ahhing!

Judy is another new demonstrator in the Stamping to Share downline so this was her first swap. Isn't it cute? I love all the bright summery circles . . . each one decorated a little bit differently from the next one. And just look at that cute watermelon slice! You did a great job, Judy!

Cindy created a lovely swap card for us and you know how I love blue so this Clean and Simple design really appealed to me. I love the Linen Thread, too. What a great way to add some sweet earthiness to your cards and scrapbook pages.

Sue found an gardener's apron card online originally created by Lisa Young. We loved the bright colors and of course the seed packet that she gifted us with! I need to create something with this stamp set. It's just so "happy!"

Judy was preparing for eye surgery the day after our demo meeting so she mailed her cards to me in advance. What fun to find this beauty in my mailbox! Punches and punches and punches . . . turns out, you NEED them ALL! lol!

Mary's summer fun revolves around all the great times that can be had at a "Pool Party." Yup . . . that's a sneak peak of a new color . . . prepare to have a splashing good time at the pool for the next two years!! I really love the way Mary made the waves glisten and gleam with  Crystal Effects.

Terri's card reminds me that wheels are wonderful! I love the pearl and rhinestone accents in the flowers and you can't get much more summery than a base of Tempting Turquoise! Congrats, Terri, on getting a fifth child through high school . . . only one more to go!! By the way, Kimmee's grad party was fun . . . the cake simply fabulous!
