Mosaic Madness Class III

Hi Stampers! 

Today I'm back with another Christmas card using the Mosaic Madness stamp set.  If you want to see another Christmas card made using this set click on this link to check it out:

Today's card was cased from a fellow demo on the My Home Grown Art blog.  I changed it up a little because I wanted to add in more of the green.  I love green - can't get enough of it!

I added a piece of Whisper White to the card interior and then added another mosaic ornament!

I also had to add some ornaments to the envelope as well.  I love to have everything be coordinated!

Stampin' Supplies:
Card Stock: Smoky Slate, Garden Green Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Stamps: Sweet Essentials, Mosaic Madness
Ink: Smoky Slate, Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker
Big Shot: Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder
Punches: Mosaic
Embellishments and tools: Basic Rhinestones, ruler or straight edge

Steppin It Up!

Hi Stampers!

Today I am featuring two cards that I made at a recent Stampin' Up! party.  I wanted to first show the attendees how to make a very simple, yet elegant card for any occasion.  Then I demonstrated the same card, but just by adding a few additional items I was able to really "Step It Up"! 

Here's the first card.  It's super simple, has a bright, cheery color scheme, and is perfect for birthdays, thank yous, or just a "Hey I'm thinking about you" note.

Here's the stepped up version:

Fun isn't it?  Next time you make a card, why don't you try to make a stepped up version as well?  I'd love to see it!

Stampin' Supplies (Card 1):
Card stock: Pool Party, Island Indigo, Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Pink Pirouette, Perfect Plum
Stamps: Sweet Essentials
Ink: Island Indigo
Other: Elegant Butterfly Punch, Basic Rhinestones

Stepped Up Extra Supplies (Card 2):
Add these on to the list for card 1!
Big Shot: Perfect Polka Dots Embossig Folder, Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, Apothecary Accent Framelits
Word Window Punch

Hope you have enjoyed reading about how to Step Up a card!  Look for more posts like this in the future!

Rhode Island Regional Swap #1

Hi Stampers!

I'm back from the Rhode Island Regional Event.  What an amazing time!  I came home so inspired!  It's definitely one of the best perks of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator!  I did quite a bit of swapping while I was out at the Regional.  Today I'm going to show you the first swap I made.

This is a really easy CAS (Clean And Simple) card to make.  I love that it features all five of our new In Colors.  For a little extra glitz I added the Basic Rhinestones!

Here's a close up of the sentiment tag.  I sponged the ends of it with Midnight Muse and popped it up on dimensionals to make it stand out on the white background.

Swap Prep Tip!
If you are swapping a card like this (whether with your stamping friends or at an event) the best way to go about it is to stamp all the images of one color first.  Also stamp the lightest color first.  So I went about making these cards by stamping all of the Summer Starfruit flowers first, followed by the Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, etc.

Wouldn't this make a great birthday or get well soon card as well?  How would you take it to the next level?

Stampin' Supplies:
Cardstock: Whisper White, Gumball Green
Stamps: Betsy's Blossoms, Sweet Essentials
Ink: Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse
Other: Modern Label Punch, Basic Rhinestones, Sponge Dauber, Dimensionals
