Festive Flurry in blue

This is the third project for Novembers stamp camp. This fun snowflake card has 3 graduating hues of blue. The white circle under the focal snowflake is to make it pop. (not get lost in the card base). The sparkle of the Frosted Finishes rhinestone embellishment had a beautiful sparkling finish to the card. Using the Festive Flurry Framelits dies makes this a fun fast card. Don't forget to get your own magnetic platform to use with your framelits dies.

Christmas Collectibles Scallop card

I love a scallop card, so when I saw the card that Mary Fish, a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator did, I decided it was time to make one again. You can view Mary's card here. I changed to Real Red and also changed the sentiment. I also put my card fold down on the die and then make a full scallop circle and glue to the front of the scallop card. The inside of the card picture shows how I cut the card. I love The Christmas Messages stamp set and I thought that this card was perfect for this sentiment. For additional embellishments, I chose to only use ribbon, placing my bow directly on the top of the ornament. This is also one of the cards for this months stamp camp.

Make and Take for open house.

This is the free make and take that I am offering at this Saturdays open house. I have recently moved and my new house had a room in the back yard that the previous owner used to make pottery. It now has a new tile floor, fresh paint, cabinets and counters tops. This is my new crafting studio and classroom.

You no longer have to go up 14 stairs to get into the house, and then go up a flight of stairs to get to my previous room, that was half the size of my new room. I now can have larger stamp camps,  My Digital Studio demonstrations and classes, and soon I will be having crops also. If you are not in my email list and are in the Charleston/Summerville, South Carolina area and are interested in attending, please message me. I will call or email you back with more information.

Your Amazing and Bring on the Cake birthday card

So I succumbed to the Chevron craze. I know I said I didn't care for it, I should know better to say that, because I really like it on this card. So I guess what I should say is I like the Chevron design used in small portions. I even like the embossed Chevron on the inside of the card (not shown). My inspiration for this card came from this card here. Thank you Amy for the great card. I basically used her sketch, but changed up the colors, type of ribbon and put the sentiment on the left side of the balloon.

This card has the new Candy Dots used alone. The Your a Winner card uses them with the matching brads. So cool that you can use them either way. I love coloring a stamp with more than one color and our Stampin' Write markers are amazing, (pun intended). Look at the bold colors of the Happy Birthday.

Not that I am posting this and looking at the inside, I decided to also color the inside of the card. I can re-post that later.

This is the third card offered for stamp camp this month. Camp is Monday, July 29th at 10:30 am.
Reservations are required and seating in limited, so make you reservation today.

Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps: Your Amazing and Bring on the Cake
Ink: Early Espresso
Markers: Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy, Early Espresso and Daffodil Delight.
Paper: Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight and Very Vanilla card stock, Etcetra Designer series paper (Navy Chevron design).

Winning ticket birthday card

I love this card. My stamp camp group asked for birthday cards, so this is one of the three we will be doing this month. I really love the sentiment on the inside done with the Early Espresso and Island Indigo Stampin' Write markers. I cased this card front from Stampin' Connection (A Stampin' Up! demonstrator only forum) from a demonstrator, Heidi King. Thank you Heidi for the great card. I did make the following changes. I cut out the elephant element instead of tearing, I used the natural trim ribbon. I also embossed the card front with the Stripes folder and added the Apothecarty accent die (cut shorter) and the candy dots. I also changed the card front to Early Espresso and Island Indigo.

Mosaic Birthday

Don't you just love the the fact that we have a stamp set, embossing folder and punch that coordinate together? I cased this card from a fellow demonstrator, you can view her card here. Thank you Ilina for the great card. I did change the Crisp Cantaloupe to Strawberry Slush, changed the card base and changed the sentiment.

You can make this fun card at this months stamp camp. This card features the new yummy in colors. The small flower inserts were punched with the Itty Bitty Shape punch then placed on the Stampin' pierce mat. Then with the stylus, gently push in the center, so that the petals pop up.

I will be adding the two other projects in the next few days.
