November Demo Meeting Swaps Part Two

Here is the second set of swaps from our November Demo Meeting with the theme of using a stamp set that starts with the same letter at your name . . . first, last, middle or maiden!
 

Cindy used Serene Silhouettes and So Sorry to make this beautiful sympathy card. She also carried the theme from our swap into every selection she made on this card from the paper (Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip) and ink (Chocolate Chip) to the embellishments (Crochet Trim and a Soft Suede Glimmer Brad!)


Dawn decided to make a wedding card with the stamp set Mr. & Mrs. to go with her options. A beautiful card for a winter wedding with the red glimmer and the crisp white. The card opens up as a gatefold which adds an unexpected but elegant touch.


Debby used the Four Frames stamp set to coordinate with her last name and she used it very creatively as a frame for her main image! I love her color choices! She also chose to use Summer Silhouettes and Really Good Greetings which are a couple of great "go to" sets.


Dorene picked Regarding Dahlias for her stamp set and did some creative Triple Time stamping on this card. You can see a video that I created HERE that uses a variation of this technique. I'm a big fan of Gorgeous Grunge and it makes a great accent on this card.


Happy Day is the stamp set that Judy used to make this card. Whisper White makes the jewel tones (Midnight Muse and Rich Razzleberry) pop on this card. I also love the way the doily repeats the shape of the main image in this geometrically designed card.


Katherine used the stamp set Stylin' Girl on this cute friendship card. I love the pearls that accent the crown and the variegated colors in her tutu! So many wonderful details . . . in addition, the card cuts off early to the right, but the sentiment extends out to meet the back right edge of the inside panel. An unexpected but lovely detail!


And finally, my card for the swap that uses the stamp set Kind and Cozy. I actually posted this gift card holder with a how to video a couple of weeks ago. Just click on quick and easy Gift Card Holder to see the original post along with a picture of the inside of this card.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for stopping by Stamping to Share!

November Demo Meeting Swaps Part One

Our swap theme for our demo meeting this month was to pick a stamp set that started with your name. I gave lots of leeway . . . middle name and maiden name included!
 

Laura picked the stamp set "Lacy & Lovely" and created a beautiful File Folder Card using the Envelope Punch Board. She used the Venetian Romance Designer Paper which provided some wonderful contrast with the Baked Brown Sugar neutral. I have a tutorial for making a cute Gift Card Holder with the Envelope Punch Board.


Lee used Lovely as a Tree to make a simply elegant Christmas card. I love all the white space and the mail-ability factor! Sometimes we get so carried away with embellishments we forget that beauty can shine without as well. Silver Details add just a hint of sparkle to the tree.


Marlys picked the stamp set Gifts of Kindness to coordinate with her last name and created with pretty card with Night of Navy all against a backdrop of Whisper White. An absolutely lovely Thinking of You card.


Mary has always been drawn to create with the beautiful image called Beautifully Baroque which pairs well with her last name. She used the moonlight technique to create this stunner. In addition, she used the stamp set Hello Lovely.


Mary picked Sassy Salutations to go with her last name and created a pretty card with that and the stamp set Mosaic Madness. To cut out the Thinking of You "just right", she traced the negative area of the rubber piece that is left when you punch out the stamp image. Brilliant!


And this card by Sue is a wonderful Christmas Gift Card Holder that has a tuck under flap created with the Envelope Punch Board. I have a video that highlights the technique on a slightly different style of card HERE. She picked Sassy Salutations to go with her first name and the stamp set Festive Flurry. LOVE how easy it is to cut out those snowflakes with the matching framelits!

Stay tuned for Part Two of our Demo Meeting Swap cards to be showcased tomorrow! And, thank you for stopping by Stamping to Share. I truly appreciate you!

Scrapbook Pages from Founder's Circle 2013 & the NEW Weekly Deal!



I've had this on my "to do" list for some time and today is the day!! I took some pictures at Founder's Circle of some lovely scrapbook pages and today is the day I am finally getting around to sharing them. You will see all kinds of "sneak peeks" on these pages. I LOVE the way the ampersand is used on this page . . . although to cut it out must have taken some patience!

 
And look at these sweet boys! Can you find the ampersand? It's almost hidden in the sheerness of the vellum. This page makes me want to scrapbook!!

 

More sweetness . . . LOVE the new washi tapes and the touches of gold. The watercolor look is sublime! And, it looks like ampersands are the new "in" thing!

 
And finally, this lovely page. I'm crazy about the way the picture was stamped! Just use White StazOn ink over a photo for a fresh approach in your albums. The stamped sentiment is from the online stamp set called Spread the Joy.
 
 

AND . . . here are the NEW weekly deals!! Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for stopping by Stamping to Share!

Easy & Versatile Festive Flurry Card with Video

 

I love the change of seasons in Minnesota and the older I get the more I appreciate winter. I like that occasionally winter forces you to slow down. When you are snowed in for a day, there's nothing quite like sitting by the fire and reading a good book while the kids are in the kitchen baking cookies. The Festive Flurry stamp set with its coordinating bundle is a true celebration of the season. Pair it up with Sweet Essentials and you can celebrate almost any winter occasion! I made this card to be easily customized by my customers. In the video below, you can see how it looks as a birthday card.

My Paper Pumpkin Noel

 

These are the sweet, sweet cards from November 2013 Paper Pumpkin Kits . . . I love My Paper Pumpkin! I love the fun and the surprise. I would never in a million years sew all those little stars onto a string to make a garland, but I love that Stampin' Up! created it for us - it's cute, swingy and makes these cards so much fun.


This is the card that I pretty much cased exactly from the flier included in each Paper Pumpkin Kit. Our stamps this time around included the star and the Wishing You sentiment. The Noel was already printed onto the banner.


Here is one of the variations that I made with my kit. I added rhinestone embellishments to the star.


A close up . . . and below you can find the video for a simpler card that I made and liked so well, that I did the final two cards just like it.



Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for stopping by Stamping to Share!
