Everyday Hero & tons more!

Recently I was able to get together with my Kathleen and her team for some stamping fun and so I thought I’d share some of the project that we made together along with some of the swaps we did.

The first card I’m sharing with you is a swap from Maria using the Everyday Hero stamp set (143080). Maria used our Watercolor Pencils to color this adorable super hero and the Gold Wink of Stella (141898) to color win the WOW so it sparkles.

More swapping fun included cards from Lorraine and Susan using the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle of products (144728).

If you haven’t already gotten this bundle it’s a great one! Lots of fantastic ideas are out there – the options are endless!

And of course who doesn’t love the Beautiful You stamp set 143004/143637) that Teresa used for her card.

And Linda who is new to the team used the Layering Love stamp set (141962/141965) along with the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper (141654) to create this soft lovely card.

She used the Decorative Label Punch (120907) for the end of the banner in a different way – She slipped the card stock into the punch and through the hole so that she only cut one end of the card stock – cool, right?

I just love the versatility of punches!

And finally some of our Make n Takes that I stamped. First this cute little 3d boat made using the Window Box Thinlits Die (142762). Wouldn’t these be great done in red, white and blue for Memorial Day?

And a card using using the Window Shopping Bundle (144742/144743) which includes the same Thinlits, but using it in a different way.

And I love this Suite of products – the Urban District found on page 47 of the Occasions Catalog contains some wonderful coordinating products that include two stamp sets, Designer Series Paper and embellishments! Wow – great for the guys in our lives and so many other uses too.

And finally a Sale-a-bration project using the So Very Much stamp set (143340/143343) that you can earn for free until March 31st.

I loved this emboss resist technique using the 2016 In Colors so much that I’m sending this card out this month to say thank you when you place an order!

Whew! what did I tell you lots of sharing and inspiring going on.  Stamping with my fellow demonstrators is one of the things I enjoy most – it’s a time to gather, learn and inspire each other. And I’ve made some wonderful friendships in my stamping journey because I’m part of the community of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.

It’s a Perfect Mix & More

Nothing is better than baking and having that wonderful smell of fresh baked goods in the house. I have such wonderful memories of my Grandmother teaching me how to bake when I was young. I fell in love with the process of creativity immediately and of course who doesn’t love the final out come.  So this set Perfect Mix brings fond memories back of my childhood and time with my own children in the kitchen too.

Want to see some wonderful cards made with this set? Here are two that I received in a swap that have very different styles, but I love them both. This first card is from Lianna and has a clean contemporary style – I love the bright cheerful In colors she used.

And this next card from Catie has more of a vintage feel to it. Lots of layering and do you seen the torn edge on the Booms & Bliss Designer Series paper (141654) and the stitching on the circles? The Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies (145372) make that soooo easy.

I just love the sentiment she showcased.

Got a favorite? Let me know which one is yours.
