Patriotic Flag Holder

Yesterday I shared with you a patriotic card that I made during our shoe box swap at my team retreat.

BMS Weekend Retreat Shoebox Swap June 2016 (2)

I loved the pop up star Melanie shared with us. I knew just what I wanted to do with some cute little post it flags that I picked up earlier in the month after I made her card.

Check out what I came up with.

Easy, peasy, right?

Zoo Babies & More Shoe box Fun!

Yesterday I shared the card I took in my shoe box for the gathering last night and so today I thought I’d share the wonderful cards my stamping friends brought along. I’m having a hard time deciding which was my favorite so I thought I’d share them all!!! LOL!

Anna used the Zoo Babies stamp set (130453/130456) for her card and I love the was she used the Washi Label Punch (138296) to create the focal point.

While the card was done using only Crumb Cake card stock she added a lot of interest with the different layers and texture.

This second card was Marni’s and she used the same set I did yesterday, (click here to see my card),  Balloon Celebration (140675) along with the coordinating Balloon Bouquet Punch (140609) – I love the way she used the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper (140550) when she bunched out some of the balloons. After all who doesn’t like a bit of “bling”?

Maria made this cute card using the Ronald McDonald House, Sprinkles of Life stamp set (139971) and the coordinating Tree Builder Punch (138295). This set will retire soon, so if you would like to make a difference and get a wonderful stamp set this is a wonderful choice since Stampin’ Up! donates $3 of every set sold to the RMHC.

She used the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack (138443) and Washi Tape (138384). Fun right? Who wouldn’t love getting this bright cheerful birthday greeting?

And the final card uses the Remarkable You stamp set (139891/139894). Done in neutrals it’s simple and elegant, something that Kathleen does so well.

We had the best time last night stamping, sharing and visiting together. And I love the fact we all have a different stamping style. It’s fun to see what others create with the same stamp sets! What do I love best about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator? The people it has brought into my life! I really feel blessed by every stamper I’ve met over the past 7 years.

Balloon Celebration Shoebox Swap

Today’s card is one that I’ve put together for a team shoe box swap I’m attending tonight. It’s bright and cheerful and when you use the Happy Happenings sentiment Stamp set (138734/139381) you’ve got all kinds of choices.

Here is the card I decided on for tonight.

Balloon Celebration & Happy Happenings (4)

And here is another version of the card. Can you tell what is different?

Balloon Celebration & Happy Happenings (1)

One of the things I love about our Designer Series Paper is it is double sided so you always have a choice. I used the 2014-2016 In Color Collection Designer Series Paper Stack (138433) for these two cards. Although they both use the same items they have different feels to them simply by using the other side! How cool is that?

Why not leave me a comment and let me know which one you like best? I’d love to hear what you think.

2014-2016 In Colors

Another Thank You note card set In Color (3)
