Blackberry is Bliss

I love the color combination of Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey.  Paired together their presence is stunning.  We stamped the flower on the inside of the card and the envelope.

Another card made at Kroptoberfest for my October Stamp Camp using the 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon.  I am excited that this ribbon is not going to retire.  Let's see….On this card I owe Judy a sheet of So Safron cardstock…..My debts are piling up.

By the Tide

I received this card as a swap at the St. Louis Regional event held in March.  The person who made it did not put her name on the back so I can't give her the credit she is due. 

We made this card at my May Stamp Camp and I sent this to my brother, Bill for his birthday.

This card is cased from a card LeeAnn Greff received as a swap from her downline, Karen.   I thought it was adorable.  Stamping images on a die cut was a challenge until I saw Dawn Olchefske’s tutorial on how to the stamp images with this stamp set.  First you ink up the stamp, then lay the die cut on top of the stamp.  Next you use a clear block to apply even pressure for the ink to absorb evenly.  Finally, lift the die cut off the stamp.

I had a new customer at my stamp camp on Saturday and she aced this technique the first time.  Awesome!!!!

This card was among the favorites made on Saturday.

Everyday Enchantment

This card was made with the Sale-a-Bration Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper and Ribbon & Brad Pack.  It features the new Adorning Accents Edgelit Die and Embossing Folder.  Stampin’ Up’s Grid Paper, a clear Big Shot cutting pad and small pieces of removable tape are essential to make the learning curve a cinch.  Take your cutting pad to the grid paper, line up the edgelit onto the paper and tape it down.  Then take your cutting  pad to the Big Shot.  Make sure to place the tape on the part of the paper that will be unused.  The results of this embossed decorative edge gives this card the WOW factor.  I was squealing with delight!!!
