Lovely as A Tree

The Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set is the flagship stamp set of Stampin' UP! (that's my opinion).  Although I have used it many times, this is the first time I have used it in a stamp camp.  It makes a great masculine card.  Another inspiration by Sandy Mathis.  What would I do without her.

Parker’s Pattern

The Parker’s Pattern Designer Series Paper immediately caught my eye when the Spring Catalog was first published.  It took me a while to get to it as there were so many occasions that needed to be addressed first.  My April Stamp Camp featured two cards using this Designer Series Paper and I couldn’t decide which one I liked best.  Neither could my customers.

You could use a variety of the sentiments from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set to adapt the occassion.

Judy’s Birthday

My good friend & peep Judy Sumner had a birthday and I made this card for her.  I managed to deliver it to her a day early when  our Pieces of Heart Demonstrator Group met for our monthly dinner.  I absolutely love the Print Poetry Paper Stack.  It has some beautiful prints that coordinate so well together.   Perfect for layering—all 14 of them just on the front—but who’s counting?
