Afternoon Tea & Live Your Dream Cards

I can't say enough good things about this stamp set and designer series paper.. I LOVE it!

These are some cards that I made right after I got my order (awhile back) ~ the Thanks card I took with me to Tulsa and had it attached with a stamp set that I had taken to be given away as a door prize. Some fellow SCSer's met at the Spaghetti Factory in Tulsa on Friday March 7th and had a dinner and card swap.. then on Saturday me and my friend Linda attended the Stampin' UP! Regional event ~ it was SO much fun.

Easter Weekend Cards made with my Mom

My mom and dad made a surprise visit Easter weekend and brought along my niece and nephew ~ they are growing so fast. During the visit me and my mom got to do some stamping, which we don't get to do very often living in different states. These are the cards we made during the weekend ~ we had SO much fun!
The Scor-Pal made it so easy to make the double gate fold cards.
The Designer Series paper on the two Thanks cards is Stampin' UP! Afternoon Tea which is in the Occasions Mini catalog. It is so beautiful and matches with the Live Your Dream stamp set ~ I am going to have to buy up some of the paper, because I don't know if it'll end up in the Fall/Winter catalog or not ~ I hope so!!

Bathtub ~ Shower Card March 30, 2008

This is a fun card that I made this morning. The card didn't start out as a "bathtub" but when I scored the lines on the So Saffron cardstock using my Scor-Pal ~ and turned it over, it looked like Bathroom tiles to me ~ so I went from there and ended up with this bathtub/shower card.

Materials used:

Stampin' UP! cardstock Bashful Blue, Rose Red, So Saffron, White, Vellum, Brushed Silver

Cuttlebug Folder bubbles (not sure of the name of the folder)

Silver Brads, Hole Piercer, Mat Pack (SU), Dimensionals


Inks: Stampin' UP! So Saffron, Bashful Blue (rubbed on inside of cuttlebug folder on positive side)
