A Basket full of Posies

I love when everything comes together easily and of course Stampin’ Up! gives us a great start since their products are designed to work together!

Crazy about You (2)

An example is this card that I received in a swap from Brenda. Not only does it use the flowers from the Crazy About You stamp set with it’s coordinating punch, but she also uses the Berry Basket Die and Handpicked Framelits Dies. They are sized perfectly for this card.

Here are some other fun items I’ve made using the Berry Basket Die.

No Bones about It – Swapping Fun!

Do you like to see what others create? Well I do – an that is part of the fun getting together for our team meetings. Swapping and learning from each other. Here are three of the cards that I swapped last week at the meeting I told you about last Thursday.

This first card was given to me by Susan and it uses the stamp set No Bones About It (138756) and the Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack (138756).

Team Fun & More

I was trying to be good today and get my gardening done before it got too hot. So, happily I can say I now have the mound of squash an zucchini off my kitchen counter top and into the freezer. That is until we pick again tonight. Half of the freezer is full of squash now so I’m thinking… planting another round isn’t necessary. My husband, Larry was a bit worried we wouldn’t have enough since the plants are already dying. I’ve got about 80 containers filled with my Baked Squash Recipe now. LOL!  (Click HERE to see my recipe that I shared last year.)

So I’m taking a break and thought I’d share the great cards I made during some Team meetings last month. Part of the fun is sharing ideas, like I showed you yesterday and part of the fun is getting to stamp together.

These first couple of cards I stamped during my SINKS team meeting. They both use Guy Greetings (138825/138828/137178). Like I’ve said before a great and versatile set to have on hand! Of course, for me these two images are great. Don’t you love cars? I know my guys do and the anchor just makes me smile.

These next cards I made during our Stamp Diva’s meeting. I love the fact we always learn techniques like this first card using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set (138813/1387816/137154).

And these next cards were taken directly from the catalog with some minor changes based on the supplies on hand. Can you spot them in the 2015 Annual Catalog?

And I thought this card using our Petite Pairs (128706/122497) and Fancy Foil Designer Vellum (133363) was fun to make. Sometimes I forget just how much fun vellum is.

Autumn Accents

It’s really beginning to feel like fall here with the latest cold front that has rolled in – now I’m just waiting for the first frost here in the North Georgia Mountains so my allergies will stop being such a pain. I definitely have a love hate relationship with fall, if you know what I mean.

Today’s cards are three more swaps that I’ve received, all of them use colors that make you think of autumn. Isn’t it cool how colors are so connected to memories and feelings of times and events?

Seasonally Scattered Stamp divas swap Sept 2014 (1)

I really like the White Vellum card stock (101856) and the Autumn Accents Die (127812) that was used to create the leaves on this first card. The vellum has been sponged and our scoring tool was used to create the veining. Cool right?

Anna created this second card using just our Lullaby Designer Series Paper (133695) along with the Petite Pairs stamp set (128706/122497).

Autumn Accents Die stamp divas swap Sept 2014 (3)

Can you see all the texture that this card has? Created simply by using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder (127821) and 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon (132140). And of course the choice of Designer Series Paper also add to the feel of the texture.

This last card was from Lorraine and uses the Wondrous Wreath stamp set (135047) and Wonderful Wreath Framelits (135851). I really like the way she turned a simple square shape onto it’s side to give it a whole different look. How about you?
