Stampin' Up Team Swap

This month is a swap month for my team, Susan's Sparklers.  For those of you who don't know what a swap is, everyone makes x number of cards of one design and we swap with other crafters, or in this case, demonstrators.  Why do we swap if we all make cards?  I swap to get ideas from other stampers.  We all have our own style and it's nice to see what other people are working on.  We all like to learn from each other.

Stampin' Up! Oh So Eclectic Class

I held a Naturally Eclectic Sweet Suite class last week.  This was one of four cards we made.  I'm delighted that this stamp set and the coordinating framelits are carrying over.  Unfortunately the designer series paper is retiring and was still available as of yesterday (5/21).  

One of my favorite layouts for cards is using lots of layers in different sizes and shapes.   I used several colors from the designer series paper and started layering.  I love the crinkled ribbon and am sad to see it retiring.  It's easy to work with and adds great texture.  I cut some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for the center of the flower.  I know it's hard to see but again, I wanted to add another element of texture to the card.

Stampin' Up! Better Together Sympathy Card

Darn. I really don't like to have to make Sympathy cards.  

One of the woman my husband works with lost her husband a few days ago.  I had the Springtime Impressions Framelits out for another project so decided to use it to make a sympathy card for him to send her.  I wanted soft colors so used the new color Pool Party, o Saffron, and Basic Black with a touch of Whisper White card stock.  The sentiment is from Better Together.

Stampin' Up! Video Tutorial Fun Fold 3 Panel Gatefold

My assistant, Angie shared this fun fold with me.  There are so many different things you can do with it in terms of how you choose to embellish it.  Start with a gate fold for the card base and the video!  

I have been playing with the new colors and new designer series paper.  I love how these new products are just so refreshing!  Catalogs have been mailed out so if you are on my mailing list and have been ordering from me, you should be receiving one soon!  If you are in the United States and don't have a demonstrator, I would love to help you out!  Let me know I can help you!

Stampin' Up! Love What You Do Stamp Set

I like the way this card turned out.  I love the clean lines of it with a vintage feel.  The Love What You Do Suite is so versatile. While this card leans toward a more feminine vibe, other images in the stamp set can be used for masculine cards.  

The crumb cake background in the designer series paper really makes the Rich Razzleberry and Mossy Meadow pop, don't you think?
