Cake Pop Card!

Stampin'up has a wonderful new die! It makes a pop up card. I have been drooling over this die and because I'm a demonstrator I get to buy it before the public. It was fun but the best part was giving the card to someone and seeing their reaction. The instructions for the cake come with the die which makes it really easy to build. I am planning to show this at some of my workshops next month if you are interested in booking a workshop let me know. vkillmore@tully.k12.ny.us

More Sale-A-Bration fun

I just keep finding more fun stuff to do with this polka dot punches set! This card starts with a punched circle as the base for the four hearts. I stamped the hearts with rose red ink on Pretty in Pink card stock. Punched out the hearts with the new heart punch and glued them down to the circle. I stamped the scallop circle on so saffron card stock and the star motif on pretty in pink card stock. I then mounted them using a flower brad and a stampin dimensional. To create the half card look I folded a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 whisper white card stock and trimmed on one side about 2 inches off. Using Sale-A-Bration paper I cut a strip to fit the left side of the card. I used the certainly celery ribbon from the Sale-A-Bration ribbon bundle for the stem and leaves The sentiment was the last thing I added and was from the Love you much stamp set and I used rose red ink. hope you like it.

Cards I Received in a Swap

Hello, Many of you have mentioned missing list in the back of our new catalog. For years now the catalog not only was an a place to see new stamps but also a great resource for ideas. This year because of so many new products, Stampin' up decided to omit the resource pages instead of raising the price of the catalog. But they did create the pages and you can see them digitally. Here is the Link
A few days ago I showed you the card I created for a swap. Today I have some of the cards I received in the swap hope you enjoy. Thanks for looking tomorrow I will have another set to show you
