Latest Creations!

I signed up for an "Every Stamp" Swap - it is an attempt to create cards using every stamp in the new Stampin Up! Idea Book and Catalogue.  I've been busy over the past couple of weeks designing and making 8 different cards with the stamps I selected.  It's been fun!  I'm finished and will be sending my cards off to the organizer this weekend.
Here are some of the cards I made.

This card is using the new "Easy Events" Stamp set.  It's a great set that allows you to make cards for all occasions.

I love the "Awash with Flowers" set.  It's really a two-step stamp set - you use the outline stamp and then fill it in with the "filler" stamp.  In this card, I only used the outline with Stazon ink on Vellum paper and then I coloured in the flower on the back of the vellum.  Don't you just love the new Ruffled Ribbon and the Wisteria Wonder colour!

I think this is my favourite card!  It's made with the Pretty Postage stamp set for the 2 outside stamps and the Fancy Fans letter press.  I used Versamark on the letterpress before running it through the Big Shot and then I used Clear Embossing Powder to give it the shine!  The centre strip is made using the "Crimper"

Stamp set is "Lovely as a Tree".  If you're looking for a very versatile set, this one is great for all occasions and for anyone.

Christmas is just around the corner.  I've used Bells & Boughs on water colour paper and then coloured in with water colour crayons.  To embellish I've added gold glass glitter to the flower centres and gold brads.

I had never thought of using these colours together, but somehow I was inspired.  The stamp set is "Circle Circus" and this is a quick and easy card to make.

Not my typical colour palette, but I like the end result.  This card uses the Triple Treat Flower stamp - it's one stamp, but the end result is a layered flower that is cut out using coordinating punches.

If you're interested in any of these designs, let me know - I'd be pleased to show you how to make all or any!

Have fun stamping!
