February Stamping to Share Demo Swaps Part One
This beauty by Laura uses the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper in the background. The butterfly die cut adds a light and airy touch to this card. Who can live without the Butterflies Thinlits Dies? It might very well be my favorite die ever from Stampin' Up! The sentiment is from the stamp set that actually coordinates with the designer paper, called Painted Petals. She used the Decorative Label Punch to layer up the words.
Kim's card takes advantage of one of the Spring Occasions Bundles called Crazy About You. This bundle includes the Crazy About You stamp set with the Hello You Thinlits Dies. I love how she used the Handheld Stapler from Stampin' Up! to attach the skinny die cut to her card ... a truly trendy touch! Kim handcut the leaves (oh my, the patience!) but she used the Medallion Flower Punch on the yellow part of the flower. The smaller accent flower was handcut from the center of the big flower that had been stamped on scrap in Calypso Coral.
Cindy's card is a tri-fold display card. I love the way the she uses the two butterfly punches on this card. The smaller butterflies were cut from the Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper that was sponged with color to show off the resist. Cindy uses many different projects on this card . . . it's kind of like going on a scavenger hunt! I see two sets of thinlit dies, two sets of framelit dies, an embossing folder, three different punches and two different stamp sets! Wow!!
Mary's card was part of her demonstration at our meeting. She showed us how to use the big shot with our framelit dies to make flip cards! This is the front of the card. She used Teeny Tiny Wishes for the sentiment and Painted Blooms for the background paper. The stamped images are from the 2015 Occasions set called Painted Petals.
This is the card flipped open to reveal the inside sentiment from the stamp set called Basic Butterflies.. (If you wish, you could also decorate the flipped over part.) The framelit set she used is from the Annual catalog called Deco Labels Framelits.
Faith's card highlights spring! She lightly sponged the raised images from the Lovely Lace embossing folder and then added touches of gold with the ribbon and the Hello You Thinlit Dies. This card is a stunner in real life as the Thank You absolutely sparkles with each beam of light! She cut the words from our Gold Glimmer paper and I assure you that they are very "glimmery!"
