Swap cards

Hello Stampers!  I have some more cards to show you that I received as swaps at the Spring Into Stamping event that I attend early in April.

IMG_0333 Isn't this card pretty?  I love all of the colors!  It uses the retiring Polka Dot Parade designer series paper (126902).  The stamp has been stamped on the designer series paper and then cut out and adhered to the front of the vases.  Very fun technique!

IMG_0334 This card uses the Off the Grid (130736) stamp set retiring) and the Million & One stamp (w-126375 c-126377) which is not retiring.  Love purples and greens together on a card.

IMG_0336 I love this card!  The colors are so pretty together.  The bottom of this card is the window sheet from the Quatrefancy Specialty designer series paper pack (130141).  The flowers are all punched from the Blossom punch (125603), Pansy punch (130698), and Petite Petals punch (133322).

IMG_0337 This card was made by Robin Johnson.  These colors are so elegant together!  The stamp set used is Happy Watercolor (w-133188 c-133191) from the Occasions catalog.  I sure hope this stamp set makes it into the upcoming catalog!

Spring cards

Hello Stampers!  I'm so glad that we can finally say Spring is here!  It was such a long, harsh winter, I was beginning to think it would never come!

I'm am so excited for this evening!  Stampin' Up! is holding a Catalog Premiere event to release the new catalog!  They are holding the event live in California, and then showing it on IMAX screens across the country.  And guess what?  They are coming to St. Louis!  I'm so excited!  So several members of my team and I are heading to the IMAX theater tonight to view the Catalog Premiere event!  I can't wait to tell you all about it tomorrow!

Today, however, I wanted to share some cards with you from a recent swap my team did.  Our theme was simply Spring cards.

IMG_0200 Sorry, but there wasn't a name on this one, and I can't remember who made it.  But I love this stamp set, Too Kind (w-130447 c-130450) and the colors!  And best of all, it's not retiring yet!!!

  IMG_0202 This pretty card was made by Lisa.  Love the background stamp, Hardwood (w-133032 c-133035) that is in the Occasions catalog!

IMG_0203 This pretty card was made by Debbie.  I love the way she used the Blossom punch (125603) to punch through the card front!  And don't you love the way the three flower punches coordinate so great together?

IMG_0199 Finally, this is the card that I made.  I CASE'd it from a swap that I received at Leadership!  I'm so going to miss that Ruffle Stretch Trim when it retires!!!

Come back tomorrow and I'll tell you about the Catalog Premiere!

Don't forget to check out the retiring lists and hop over to my Inkin With Dink online store and place your order for the items on your wish list before they are gone!

Happy Easter!

Hello Stampers!  Happy Easter!  I hope that you have all had a fun day with family and friends!  We have!  We started the day going to church, and then we came home and decorated 200 cake pops!  Why you ask?  My youngest daughter Amie, loves to bake, and she often gets orders from people for her products!  This latest one, was the biggest by far!  She was asked to make 200 cake pops for a volunteer luncheon!  The best part was that they wanted them to look like the earth!  Come back tomorrow and see how they turned out!

 

Today I wanted to show you an Easter card that we made in my kid's class this month.

 

IMG_0382 The girl's had fun making these.

IMG_0383 Here is what the inside of the card looks like.  The cute stamp set that I used is Eggstra Spectacular (w-133068 c-133071).  And of course the little pom pom for the bunny tail makes the whole card!!

We also made an Easter candy holder that was super cute!  Hop over to my Inkin With DInk Facebook page to see it!

Swap cards

Hello Stampers!  Man what a busy weekend this has been!  I had another craft fair all weekend at the YMCA.  It was fun because my daughter has started crafting and bringing her items to sell at the craft fair too, so I have some great company for the weekend!  Plus it is great to see the look on her face when she sells items!  Yes, the crafting bug has hit her hard too!

Today I wanted to show you some of the swaps from my recent Spring Into Stamping event that I attended.

IMG_0328 This card is from Naveen Manchanda

IMG_0329 This swap didn't have a name.

IMG_0330 This swap was made by Mary Ellen.

IMG_0331 This pretty swap was made by Cheryl Sorensen.

IMG_0332 Finally, this pretty card was made by Cheryl Camp.

I just love swapping with others!  It is so great to see other's styles and tastes.  What a great way to get ideas!  When you become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, there are lots of opportunities to swap!  Join us today!

Spring basket

Hello Stampers!  Today I have another fun project to show you!  Are you all as ready for Spring as I am?  I wanted to show you a beautiful Spring basket that one of my downline made. 

IMG_1351-001  Isn't this fun?  One of my downline made this and brought it to one of our team meetings.  I thought it was beautiful and made me think of Spring!  She used the Blossom punch (125603) and the Elegant Butterfly punch (127526). 

This would make a super cute Easter basket also!  Try your hand at these bakets and then let me know how you did!
