Vintage Swap Card

I've joined my 2nd swap with fellow Stampin Up! demonstrators.  I have to admit that this is getting a little addicting.  It's a vintage swap so I'm really excited to see what ideas other people came up with.  Here's a look at what I came up with.  I used river rock card stock as my base.  I layered the News Print designer paper onto basic black.  The stamp set is called inspired by nature and I made some buttons for embellishment using the buttons #5 Sizzlet die.  I really like the way this card came out and I hope the recipients do too.  Happy Stamping!

Markis Turns 4

Markis Turns 4

My cutie little nephew Markis turned 4 on Saturday.  It seems like he was just born and now we were at Chucky Cheese watching him play like the big kids.  Time is passing too fast.  Well, I took so long to figure out what to do on his card because I really didn't have much in stamps for little boys.  I remembered that I had an old clear set that I used once before for my nephew Jake.  It was a set with monsters on it (and what little boy isn't a little monster once in a while)  so I figured that I would try and do something with it.  I was so pleased with the way it came out.  I just love the Marina Mist cardstock and he just looks adorable covered in dazzling diamonds.  Who says it just for girls anyway.

Just a little video with a tip on mounting your Stampin Up! Clear mount stamps.  Recorded it from my ipod so the angle wasn't right.  sorry.

Valentine Swap Cards

I've recently participated in a card swap with some of the other Stampin Up! demonstrators.  It was Valentine's themed so I wanted to share them in case anyone was looking for any new ideas for card layouts.  Nice job ladies!
