9/17/13 Stamping to Share Demo Mtg Swaps Part One
Our swap theme for our September Stamping to Share Monthly Meeting was Anything Fall. Linda Watson made this great gate-fold card. I love the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper that she picked. An altogether mysterious look for this Toil and Trouble card.
Here is the inside of the gate fold card. Simply done yet carries the theme to the inside of the card.
Marlys Guertin created this sweet punch art card. The fence was hand cut and hand rounded . . . no template! (We asked! So well done!) The pumpkins look so "rounded" with the excellent sponging! Marlys is one of our newer demos and it is always so much fun to see them jump into our fun business with both feet! Yeah to you, Marlys!
Laura Erickson created the beauty. It has a floating feeling about it with the cut out window and sweet fall flowers on both the inside and the outside of the card. This is a thank you card, but with Perfectly Penned, you have four sentiment choices, all of which would look great on a card like this.
I'm not gonna lie, THIS was the card that had everybody whipping their cameras out and oohing and aahing! Mary Smallidge likes to call herself the Queen of Putz so the front of her card was enough to make us sigh with all the different folders that she used on her die cut leaves.
But, look at what the inside brings!! We all started to get pretty excited and just opening it up was so much fun. This is the card as it is being opened.
And this is the card once it is fully opened!! How totally FUN is that?? Way to go, Mary Smallidge!!
Now, I don't have time to answer the emails I might get about this card. I have two scrapbook sessions today and I am packing for Stampin' Up!'s Founder's Circle Trip, so I decided to take another picture to show you how the butterfly is folded and exactly where it is placed in the card so that you can recreate it if you would like to.
Have a GREAT day and thanks so much for stopping by Stamping to Share. I'll have Part Two of the Demo cards tomorrow so stay tuned!!
