November Customer Swaps

With Thanksgiving it took a little longer for the mail to get to me so we had a slight delay in posting as well. But nonetheless, I have the cards ready to share.. The theme was "Christmas".

In alphabetical order...

Just a little bit of stamping...

What do you do when one of you friends turns 50 and loves to deer hunt? Well you make a card fitting for that...

I know the only thing stamped on this card is the sentiment... The rest, I've designed and created in my Silhouette Design Studio and cut out with the cameo (electronic cutter)

I just wanted to point out that our Stampin' Up! cardstock works so very well for other paper crafts too... AND I used our new framelits "Stitched Shapes"... so I combined the best of both worlds and had fun!

BTW - I've created this cutting file from scratch and it is not for sale...

Glitter Window Ornament

And here is another pretty card from our downline meeting last weekend. This card was designed and presented by Julie.

The ornament was die cut into the white card layer. Then packing tape was added over opening and Dazzling Diamonds glitter was added over it. So easy! The on a scrap paper we stamped the ornament in Real Red ink and adhered over non glittered part of the window...

Peaceful Trees

Today's card share is another one from my downline meeting. And it was designed by Shelley. She participated long distance per swap and mailed in her cards...

She applied the pool party ink to the embossing folder prior to running the paper through the BigShot...

Thoughts & Prayers

Thoughts & Prayers is my go to stamp set for sympathy cards it seems. Sadly I needed a card last week. And when I think of sympathy cards I always think of calm colors so I came up with this...

BTW - if you're wondering what I've used to create the scallop border... yes it's a scallop SQUARE, which of course is not long enough to cover the whole width needed.  A scrap strip of white cardstock was folded in half. Then the fold was aligned with indentation of scallops in framelit and die cut. It was then opened back up and border was adhered behind layer and trimmed off to desired length.

Pretty Pines and Copper, Yes please!

Today I want to share with you the card that I made for my downline meeting this afternoon.

I am not sure if you can see, but I've added some clear wink of Stella glitter to some of the greenery. This card is prettier in real, I think... We had a good time crafting and visiting with each and even video chatted with some of our out of State demos that can't come in person anymore. Love technology for that reason... staying in touch!
