This card is just a way to show you how you can also colour your background stamps, or any stamp for that matter. Just colour your images with Stampin Write Markers. Once done, you will have to “huff” on the colouring before applying to your cardstock, but this way you get to add multi-colours instead of just one single colour.
I’m not that great with sketch stamps, but I think I really like how this one turned out. I once again used one of the new in colours (Baked Brown Sugar) and ran it through the Woodgrain Embossing Folder. I also used the Designer Frames embossing folder for the frame around the bird image.
This is another card idea that i got from the internet, but I can’t remember where I got it from. If this is your idea please let me know so that I can give you credit. I did make some changes and additions, but isn’t it cute? Stamp your greeting first, before running it through your Big Shot, otherwise it won’t show up very good at all. I used the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, and 3 different size punches. I put window sheets behind the punched out circles, so that it looks like the inner circles are “floating”
Finally got a chance to experiment with some of the new product from Stampin’ Up. The new stamp set Morning Meadow is beautiful. You can also order the co-ordinating embossing folder Wildflower Meadow.
I used Baked Brown Sugar which is a new “in colour”, and stamped the image on Very Vanilla Cardstock. Next, line up the embossing folder with the image, and run through your big shot or cuttlebug.
Look closely around the flowers, you can see the embossing.
The greeting is part of one of the new hostess stamp sets, called Simply Sketched.
I have been using the large Pop Tops in most of my projects and workshops and saw a card using the small ones from Danielle Calder from stampenvy. My version is very similar, different colours but still very effective. Thanks Danielle!
I had a bunch of triangles already cut out from previous projects, and started to play. After I taped them to the card, it seemed to be missing something, so ran the front through my Big Shot, using Square Lattice Embossing Folder.
You can never go wrong with Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set, it is so versatile, and works well with Sympathy Cards. To achieve this design use a scrap piece of cardstock and cut a square in the middle. I then placed the template over my cardstock, and sponged Basic Gray ink within the square. Remove the template and then just stamp Lovely as a Tree, still using Basic Gray ink. Add just a few dots of two way glue, and dazzling diamonds. The key is not to use a lot.
This is another card we did at Cardstock 2013. My Stampin’ Up partner that is the other half of Cardstock 2013 brought in this design. She used Apothecary Art Stamp Set and the Labels Collection Framelits. The stamp itself is just coloured with Stampin’ Write Markers.
The background which I think makes this card unique is done using Core’dinations Card Stock. It was embossed with the Honeycomb Embossing folder.
I’ve been browsing the web and looking for new ideas, and I keep coming back to this kind of design. Finally I tried it, and now I am wondering what took me so long!!!! In this sample I paired Night Of Navy and Wisteria wonder for the 2 outside designs, and for the middle I used Pool Party and Tempting Turquoise. I cut each piece to a 3/4″ square, and then rounded each of the 2 opposite corners with a corner rounder.
The lacy design is done with Delicate Designs Embossing Folder, and a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock as an extra layer.

I love this adorable little guy! We made this card at Cardstock 2013. My friend Kim that puts this event on with me, came up with this card idea. She cased it off of Josee from Stampin Jo. To complete this card you will need the following:
Green cardstock of your choice for the frog
Green cardstock of your choice for lily pad
Whisper white cardstock
2 extra large ovals (frog legs)
Large oval (face)
1-3/4″ Circle (frog’s body)
1-3/8″ Circle (frog’s stomach)
2 flowers punched with Boho Blossoms Punch (for frog’s toes)
3/4″ Circle for frogs eyes (same colour as the rest of your frog) x 2
1/2″ Circle whisper white for eyes x 2
Smaller circles (we used the ones from the owl builder punch) from black for inner eyes x2
Oval framelit for lilypad, and oval white background
3 flowers from boho blossoms punch using whisper white (put all 3 together, pierce in center and attach with brad.
Framed tulips folder for second layer (we used perfect plum)
For extra dimension and effect, sponge the edges of all of your pieces for the frogs body with same colour green ink, as you used for cardstock. For flowers, before assembling, sponge with perfect plum.
I learned how to make these tins a long time ago, and have just been asked to make some for door prizes. I had forgotten all about them, so thought I would share with you as well. You can purchase these tins from Michaels. I cut my main pieces of Designer Series Paper, and cardstock in advance. Then I covered the tin with modge podge, that acted as my glue. You can then embellish however you want! The inside of the tin is perfect for the size of your cards and envelopes. You can even go one step further and make index cards if you like.

I LOVE this card!! Another sampling of making flowers with punches. This was done by punching out 16 of this particular shape from the Build a Blossom punch. Then I just scored them down the center and curved upwards a bit on each petal. You could just fold in half if you don’t want to score. Then punch out a circle (1″ or more). Position 8 petals around the circle. Then for the second layer, postion another 8 petals in between each petal from the bottom layer. Then punch out a small circle for the middle of your flower. My card colours are Natural Ivorys Specialty Paper, So Saffron and Chocolate Chip. I also sponged Chocolate Chip around the outside edges of the second layer cardstock, and used dimensionals to pop up this same layer. You can use any greeting for your card of course.

What a lot of fun! Congrats to Maryhelen – Maryhelen won her fee back in the Early Bird Draw, so she got to enjoy her day for FREE! All these ladies made 14 cards each, sat through 5 demonstrations and received FREE gift for coming, and we had lots of door prizes to boot! I am telling you, I LOVE these events. So many of you came to us with your reasons for loving it as well. It makes all the hard work worth it. THANK YOU so much to all of you!
One of the overwhelming comments centered around more events. As there were so many “newbies” this time around we thought it important to let you know the following:
We host one large CARDSTOCK event each year, this one being our 2nd annual. Cardstock events run on a Saturday during the day, usually 10-4. Each participant receives a FREE gift, and completes about 14 cards. There are 3 WOW demonstrations, and 2 TECHNIQUE demonstrations. Lunch, snacks, drinks, door prizes and give – a – ways.Participants are divided into groups and go around with their group in timed sessions.
We host 2 Stamp A Stacks each year. One usually in the late spring, and the other one in November (Christmas Stamp A Stack). Each participant receives a small appreciation gift, and of course there are snacks, drinks and PRIZES!! Stamp a Stacks are held on a week night in the evenings, Participants move around to each station and work at their own speed.
Of course, there are always the regular workshops as well. These are on a much smaller scale. Workshop is either hosted by myself at my house, or at a customers house where she is the hostess. As a hostess, you will receive your class fee FREE, a FREE catalogue, ALL my samples for that night, FREE stamp set from me, and then all the other regular hostess rewards from Stampin`Up. Each guest pays $10.00 and completes 3 cards each. Each card is demonstrated and worked on one at a time. If you would rather do Scrapbooking pages then we do that instead of cards!
It’s probably hard to tell, but this is actually a favours box. I can make cards, but photography is a whole new issue. I was experimenting with paper flowers for our upcoming Cardstock 2013 to be held this Saturday. These particular flowers are Pansys, and were made with the Butterfly Punch. I hope I am wrong, but I am pretty sure I heard this punch is retiring at the end of May. I’m afraid to go look for sure, as retired lists always make me sad. The box is done using the Fancy Favor Bigz XL Die.
This was another simple card to do, and yet so nice. Once again I wish I could remember who I cased this layout from. I find pictures and photo copy them, put them in my “to do someday” box, and then once I make it, I through the picture away.
