More Fun Cards!!

My stamping buddy Valerie and I get together and stamp as much as time will allow. We starting picking our brains for ideas for swap cards. In July, Stampin' Up! is holding there 20th anniversary convention and I get to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!! I am so excited!!! Anyway here are a couple of the swap card ideas and a few other random cards I have made.

You're Invited!
I would have to say, not my favorite card but not the worse either. I love the color combination using Basic Gray and Pink Passion. If you can't tell the pink highlighted date is my BIRTHDAY!

Stamps: Pun Fun (hippo), Mark the Date, and Full Calendar

Ink: Basic Gray, Black, Pink Passion

Paper:Basic Gray, Pink Passion, Whisper White

Accessories: Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon

Thankful Embrace!
I am not sure if I love the card but I love the sets we used. The Embrace Life and Lovely Label sets are awesome sets! We used the Rock and Roll technique on the Thank you with Old Olive and Elegant Eggplant.

Stamps: Embrace Life, Lovely Labels

Ink:Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive

Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive, Whisper White

Accessories: Scallop punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, 1 1/4 circle punch, Eggplant ribbon, corner rounder, glue dots and dimensionals

I saw this card idea at I Ink, Therfore I am's blog.
It uses the designer paper you get as a level one hostess gift. It was very simple to create and I love the way it looks
Stamps: Smarty Pants

Ink: Chocolate chip

Paper: Designer Paper, Chocolate chip, and Whisper white

Accessories: Chocolate chip marker, chocolate chip poly twill ribbon (found in the Occassions Mini)

Suzy Room Card!
How fun is this card!? It took quite a while to get her created but she is here. The idea had been floating around in my head for a while but it took a while to get her on paper. The base is 8x8 piece of whisper white folded in half both ways and then I cut on one of the lines to the center. The stamps are Family Phrase, Sassy Suzie, and the Neighborhood Wheel. I sponged the sky with Bashful Blue, colored the houses. Sassy Suzie and the Yard sign are cut out and sat up with a small piece of garden green paper to match the sponged garden green grass. I have yet to complete the outside of her but she folds up and is mailable. If you would like to learn how to create one of these fun cards email me today to set up a workshop where you and your friends can create one.

Here is the card folded up....You can decorate the outside and tie with ribbon to mail....Stay tuned...she will be completed one day! :-)
