Just Sharing! Butterfly Punch and Designer Frames Embosslit!

  In the interest of keeping an active blog despite trying to take it easy this summer I'm sharing this super simple card I did with my niece Erin who is a new demonstrator.  She needed some card ideas that used limited supplies.  Emboss the frame punch some DSP with the Wide oval punch and add the two sizes of butterfly punches and some Rhinestones add a greeting and it's lovely!

Lattice Stampin' Up! Card

I saw a card with a very labor intensive lattice tutorial-I don't remember where because I thought to myself-way too much work!  Then I remembered a few days later that we still had this Lattice Bigz Die so I decided to see what I could do to make an easy version of that card.  So here is my version.  I used the Window Frames Framelit and Secrete Garden stamps and Framelits.  I made two versions I did the one with the Whisper White and Strawberry Slush first but I felt it was a little less then I wanted so I did the second card and made on 3-D Flower and liked it much more-I see two tutorials in my future if you would like me to do a tutorial on either the card base or the 3-D flower leave me a comment!

Quatrefancy Card For You!

Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper
 My newest downline member came to stamp last Friday-so I made her this card.  Erin needed some class card ideas-this layout is one of my favorite card layouts to teach a new Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  The center panel is 3 x 4 so it makes a bright wow of DSP and you can make 24 of the same card from the two sheets of paper in the pack that are the same,  add a ribbon and a fun over sized greeting and everyone says "so cute".  This is cool paper too it comes with this awesome patterned window sheet-I need to go and play with that!

Mosaic Madness Stampin' Up!

 This is a fun little card using the new Mosaic Moments Suite of products.  This fun new color is Strawberry Slush- This card reminds me of a popular dress style for prom dresses this year.  Those dresses were a little too risque for my girls but perfect for a card!  I've seen others make this card but I don't know where it originated from.  I did mine by slicing off 1/2 inch and then an 1 1/2 the 1/2 inch I discarded the 1 1/2 inch I lined up at the bottom edge then reattached it using the punched mosaic images. 
On the inside I lined up a one inch wide by 5.5 inch wide slice of DSP that will show through when the card is closed.  I stamped the greeting above the DSP- I've made it my own now it is your turn.

All these products are available in my online store.  Place a $35 order and earn a free tutorial with step by step instructions for this and two additional Mosaic Madness Cards!
