Here are the cards I did this past week in my stamp a stack class. They made a dozen cards total (3 of each – 4 designs).
Here are the cards individually and up close….
This one used the Take Three set and I colored it with the real red and old olive markers. I copied this idea from one of the girls at Founder’s Circle.
This one was made with the To You and Yours set. I used baja breeze, chocolate chip and the ski slope paper.
This one is an oldie but a goody…..my old favorite Lovely as a Tree. I used Kiwi Kiss and Riding hood red for this one along with the Top note die from the Big Shot.
This last one is the Snow Swirled set in Pink Pirouette and Chocolate chip.
Here are a couple of the cards we did at stamp club this month. The first one is the "To you and yours" set which I just love! I used the scallop edge punch to make that blue square in the center. I also used dazzling diamonds around the edge of the kraft cardstock.
The 2nd one is an idea I got from someone at Founder’s Circle. I used the Snow swirled set and stamped one snowflake in baja, then I did the large one in white craft and embossed in white , then stamped the small one in chocolate chip.
I had some friends over the other day and we made those cool pennant banners. Here are pics of mine from the front and back. I have mine hanging as you walk into my stamp room from the living room so everyone walks right under it. One side says CREATE! and the other says STAMP. I like how the Create side falls right under my "Live Every Moment" Decor Element. This is inside my stamp room. It was a lot of fun to make these. I learned how to do it while I was at Founder’s Circle this year. I have another one that says CELEBRATE and WELCOME but I haven’t had a chance to hang that one up yet.
Note from Lisa: These banners are made out of decorator fabric I got at Joann’s. You want to use a heavier fabric to make it easier to punch out with your Big Shot and it will also hang better. The thinner fabrics do not work as well unless you use heat and bond as a backing to make them stiffer.
Here is the last birthday gift pic (I think)…..This one was made by my friend and upline Melissa Ellis. She knows I love anything she makes.
She used the vinyl cling and Big Shot to make the Peace for the frame.
I received this beautiful candy/flower birthday bouquet from one of my downline (Sue Sansoucy). I just love this! It is just so cute. SHe also made this adorable pin wheel card to go with it. I have all of these on display in my stamp room. I wish my birthday came more than once a year!
Here are some more neat gifts that I received….these are from my friend (and downline) Sandy Alexander. She knows my favorite chocolates are those Ghirardelli ones filled with caramel so each gift item was filled with them!! Who wouldn’t love that?? The one on the far right is a purse made out of a lunch bag. It is hard to tell from the picture.
I just had to share some of the handstamped gifts I received for my birthday. I have some super awesome (and very talented) friends. These were all made by my friend Lorrie Reid (also a SU demonstrator). I loved the tin and it was filled with cards! What an awesome gift!! I will be posting more pictures this weekend. SHe also gave me the little jar filled with Hershey’s kisses. Both were made with that gorgeous Haiku paper.
My good friend Angie Oakes sent me this birthday card all the way from Japan. I love how she made the vase from the large oval punch. What a cute idea! Angie is actually the one who got me hooked on stamping about 8 years ago! Then I signed up to be a demonstrator and several years later I talked her into signing up under me!
This one was sent to me from my good friend (and convention roomie) Terri Mongeon. You might know her from that fabulous presentation she did with Jaron Winder at Convention. She is so much fun and I love this card and stamp set!
Here is another awesome bday card I received. It is hard to tell from the picture, but it is an accordion fold card and the flowers pop out when you open it. THis one was made by another one of my talented downline , Elizabeth Velazquez.. Great job Elizabeth!
My birthday was Saturday and one of my downline (and good friend) Sue Bjorgaard made me this incredible card! Check it out. I got several more really nice ones from my downline and customers so I will post more this week.
This is the front view…..
