Stamping to Share Downline Swaps Part Two

Here's Part Two of the Stamping to Share Downline Swaps. Thanks for stopping by! I truly appreciate you.

Mary used the Party Wishes Bundle from the Occasions 2016 catalog to create this cute card. The designer paper is from the huge 12x12 paper stack called It's My Party. So fun and festive!

Need a "wow" gift card holder? Check out this card that Cindy created. She used the Build a Birthday stamp set. The pedestal was stamped on the back side of silver foil and then hand cut ``for this card. The candle was stamped onto scrap and then punched with the Bird Builder Punch. I think that is ingenious!

Here is the inside of the card with the main sentiment from BYOP (Buy Your Own Present!)

Kim's card is so fresh and fun. She used the Celebrate Today Bundle. I love this bundle because it can be used for a myriad of occasions such as baby, grads, wedding, birthday, new job, retirement etc. What doesn't show up in the photo is just how sparkling the pennants are that goes across the balloon. It's cut from Gold Glimmer paper and truly makes this card shine!

Faith made this stunning card with the Botanical Builder Framelits and combined the gorgeous die cuts with images from the Rose Wonder Bundle. The possibilities for card making and home decor will be truly endless with those framelits at your craft station.

Faith brought the Rose Wonder Bundle into play again with this card that also showcases the Sale-a-bration rewards paper called "Perfectly Artistic." It doesn't take long to create a beautiful card with this bundle. Don't you love the rhinestone "dewdrop?"

When you want a stamped image to "fly," just perch it onto a tri-fold card and it will zoom around every time you open it. Dawn created this card that features two Sale-a-bration products limited through February 15: Sky is the Limit stamp set and Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper.

Dawn also made another card that goes crazy on Sale-a-bration products featuring an image from the Flowering Fields stamp set, Botanicals for You stamp set and Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper. Get them while their hot!! Sale-a-bration ends on March 31 with the Limited Items available only through February 15.

Stamping to Share Downline Swaps Part One

I have a very talented group of Creative Crafters in my Stamping to Share Downline and I am excited to share with you today and tomorrow some of the cards we've been exchanging with each other. Enjoy!!

This card by Laura is a Decorative Corner card. She used the stamp set called Remarkable You. I love the way she stamped and heat embossed the flower on our card stock vellum, colored it with markers from the back and then fussy cut. It's absolutely stunning!

This is what Laura's card looks like from the top. If you would like to try to recreate a card like this, just click on Decorative Corner Cards for all the information.

Karen created this card that uses the stamp set Beautiful Bunch and Vintage Leaves. I love how the flower and leaves stamped on the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper seem to emerge right out of the printing - very artsy and vintage-y!

Dawn created a Latch Card closure birthday card using the stamp set Sprinkles of Life with some new punches from the Occasions catalog called Party Punch Pack.

Here is a close up of the closure. Aren't those balloons just the cutest?

Faith's card is full of fun, color and confetti! Perfect for kids in the dinosaur stage! She used the stamp set No Bones About It along with the fern from Butterfly Basics.

Mychelle's card uses the stamp set called Watercolor Wings with the Bouncing Brayer Technique for this stunning card. The sentiment is from the Tin of Cards stamp set.

Stacey's card is an elegant black and white that uses Teeny Tiny Wishes with Petite Petals. The background is embossed with Lovely Lace and the ribbon is our luscious Stitched Satin in Basic Black.

Mary's card uses the new Confetti Embossing Folder with the Party Wishes stamp set. Notice the pretty frame around the candle that is also repeated behind the cake? She marker-ed up just the sprinkles in the Make a Wish stamp and look at the cute frame that makes when you take away the sentiment! I just love how creative my group is. Stay tuned for Part Two tomorrow!

Stampin' Up! Flowering Fields Sale-a-bration 2016 with How To Video

I'm on a roll stamping on our Stampin' Up! Kraft 12x12 paper. It's so nice to color on . . . and it works well for watercoloring, too. And, if you love the vintage side of life, then you will also love creating with this paper.

Today, I'm focusing on one of our Sale-a-bration 2016 stamp sets. It's called Flowering Fields and every image that you see on this card was stamped in one fell swoop! All of the instructions and measurements are on my video below. Enjoy!!
