At each of our Luv 2 Stamp Group meetings or events we have a card swap.  We each make about 35 cards, bring them and swap with everyone at the meeting.  At lunch time we vote for our favorite cards.  I also encourage all of my long distance downline to particpate by mailing in their cards for me to swap and send back to them.  Usually only about 4 of 5 of them send in cards, and this time, one of the winners was one of the long distance swaps!! whohooo!

Swap contest winners
It was a 3 way tie for the winner!

------------------------

 We always have a card swap at our Luv 2 Stamp Group meetings... here is the card I made and swapped with my friends at our meeting on Saturday:

Betsy blossom swaps

I created the Betsy's Blossoms background in My Digital Studio with this download, but you can create this exact background with the stamp set and inks listed below.

I used the paper piercing pack to give this die cut some added pizzazz.. (for more paper piercing info see THIS BLOG POST)

Betsy blossom swap pierced

as an alternate idea, if you want to give some texture without the time it takes to paper pierce, grab an embossing folder, like the Fancy Fan folder and run the die cut through your Big Shot with the embossing folder instead:

Betsy blossom swap tags

  • Betsy's Blossoms set, pg 72 #126004 / 126006
  • Wacky Wishes set, pg 204 available with hostess credit
  • Ink pad colors: Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Gumball Green and Daffodil Delight

We enjoyed a wonderful day on Saturday here in the San Francisco Bay Area at our quarterly Luv 2 Stamp Group Stampin' Up! meeting!  We were inspired, educated and entertained... we ate, stamped, swapped and made new friends... we laughed, cheered and celebrated... and basically had a wonderful day together!

Thank you meeting helpers
I truly could not do it without my team of volunteers each time... these gals helped with set up, registration table, card contest, clean up, A/V equip, notes and photos.  Thank you!

Meeting helper thank you giftsI love to treat the volunteers to some type of little gift at each meeting. This time they each received a sampler of the Summer Smooches fabric as well as a darling business card holder made from the Summer Smooches fabric.

My multi-talented downline and friend, Wendy Cranford, made the business card holders for me!

Summer smooches business card holders
aren't they too cute?

I packaged them with a sampling of the Summer Smooches fabric and decorated the packaging.

Summer smooches thank you gifts

From my heart thank you gift
I made the Thank You tags using the From my Heart stamp set (pg 139) stamped in Real Red on whisper white cardstock, then die cut with the Floral Frames Framelits (pg 191) and the Big Shot. The polkadot paper flowers are die cut with the same Floral Frames Framelits using the Polka Dot Parade Designer paper found on pg 164. 

Stay tuned all week for more photos from our meeting.

FreakwelcomeWELCOME to the June 2012 Control Freaks Blog Tour!!!

We are showcasing projects featuring

ALL NEW

STAMPIN' UP!

PRODUCTS

from the NEW Stampin' Up! Catalog in this tour.

You have probably joined me after visiting Gretchen's fabulous blog, and you can click on the "next blog" link at the bottom of the post to continue on the tour.  (All of our projects will be live no later than Wednesday morning.. if you are joining me Tuesday night, you may need to check back tomorrow if all links are not quite working yet.)

 It's that EXCITING time of year when we get to WELCOME NEW Stampin' Up! sets and accessories.. our blog tour today will showcase NEW CATALOG CREATIONS from Stampin' Up!.

My first sample features one of my very favorite new sets called Blooming with Kindness.  You'll find this beautiful flower (with awesome greetings) on pg 87 of the new Stampin' Up! catalog.

 

Delicate designs blooming kindnessBlooming with Kindness, pg 87, Wood: 126420/ Clear: 126422

Delicate designs apothecary framelit

I die cut one of the shapes from the Apothecary Accents Framelits package, then stamped the flower with Primrose Petals & Raspberry Ripple (rock n roll technique), and then used the AMAZING NEW Essentials Paper-Piercing pack (pg 181, #126187) with the new Stampin' Pierce mat and new Paper-Piercing tool (both on pg 181) to achieve the fun accent around the die cut.   I also used TWO embossing folders: Delicate Designs on the LEFT side of the card (pg 188, #127023) and the new Fancy Fan folder on the right side of the card (pg 189, #127751).  I used a strip and also punched out an accent from the new pack of Floral District DSP (pg 163, #126919) and finished off with a Vintage brad and some new 1/4" stitched white ribbon (pg 173, #126877).

-----------------------------------

My 2nd project featuring NEW STAMPIN' UP! PRODUCTS

features cute Old Olive Polkadot fabric from the

Essentials Designer Fabric package on pg 170, item #126892,

and the FABULOUS new Daydream Medallions stamp set

on pg 117, #126465/126467.

Daydream medallion birthday boxWho wouldn't want to receive this pretty little box for their birthday?

Daydream medallion birthday tag 2

I used the torn fabric strip to tie around the white box, and then added the birthday tag.

The MEDALLION TAG is stamped with Raspberry Ripple, Lucky Limeade, and Daffodil Delight ink.  Each layer is die cut with the coordinating FLORAL FRAMES FRAMELITS (pg 191, #127012) and the Big Shot.  The blue heart layer is Designer paper from the FLORAL DISTRICT pack and a DELICATE DOILY SIZZLIT (pg 191, #126999). The green center is punched from the INTERNATIONAL BAZAAR pack of DSP, pg 164, #126920.  it's topped off with a Vintage Brad.

The frilly birthday greeting stamp is a single stamp found on pg 44, #125562, and it's die cut with the Floral Frames Framelits and layered onto a punched out flower from Besty's Blossoms.

Did you want to know what's in that pretty little box??

That is the new Essentials Designer Fabric package!!

Watercoloring on Natural Composition DSP from Stampin Up!

2012 new Catalog Product Shares

On Tuesday I shared a cute idea with you for using the NATURAL COMPOSITION SPECIALTY DSP (PG 162) from Stampin' Up! and the adorable LITTLE LABELS PUNCH PACK.  Today I have another tip to share with you for using this GORGEOUS paper!

WATERCOLOR ON IT!!

Natural composition watercolor paper
The gorgeous new Natural Composition Specialty DSP has glossy raised patterns on it.. almost like it was embossed in versamark and clear embossing powder!!  So I decided to try watercoloring because the glossy raised portions will resist the ink.. anyway.. it turned out really neat!!!

I used my Aquapainter (pg 178) and the ink in the lids of my classic ink pads to do the watercoloring.

After I cut it into pieces, i added it to a couple cards featuring the new POSTAGE DUE stamp set (pg 108) (one of my very favorite items in the new catalog!)

Postage due natural composition 2

I stamped the Postage Due image onto WATERCOLOR PAPER with Soft Suede (above) and Raspberry Ripple (below)... just for a neat texture.

Postage due natural composition 1

  • Postage Due stamp set pg 108,  #126395 or 126397
