More Cards

Here are a couple of more cards from my demonstrator

This card by Andrea uses the Kind and Caring Level 3 Hostess Set found on page 16. It also uses the fun oval frame Big Shot die.

This card by Scheli uses the Christmas Punch Level 2 Hostess stamp set. Isn't that snowman adorable? This stamp set coordinates with many of our punches: Large Tag, Boho Blossom, Scallop Oval, Curly Label, Wide Oval, and Scallop Square.

New Stuff--Part 4

More samples from my swapping group:

Oh, this card by Lynn uses lots of new stuff! The stamp set is my favorite level 2 Hostess only set called Wings of Friendship. It's not my typical style, but it must be because I still have love for Stampin' Up's stupid birds! Let me tell you, in real life, I DO NOT LIKE BIRDS! I actually have a bit of a phobia about them. Ask me to tell you about the times (yes, plural!) we had birds in our house and my little walk through the San Diego Animal Park's Lorikeet Landing.
Anywho---this card uses 3 of the new In Colors--Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, and Crushed Curry. Plus, the Rich Razzleberry polka dot ribbon, love it!

This card by LeeAnn uses the Circle Circus stamp set. I love the colors--Melon Mambo, Basic Black, and Basic Grey. Whisper White. I also like how she used the Jumbo Grommet (page 179) in the middle of the scallop circle and tied the ribbon through it.

New Stuff--Part 3

Here are two more cards from my swapping group:

This card is by Stacey and uses the new Animal Stories stamp set found on page 88. This is a really cute bold image set that has a coordinating pack of Designer Paper call Tall Tales. The stamp set also has a giraffe, elephant, and owl. I saw someone turn the owl into a cute kitty by markering part of the whale's spray to use as a tail. Super cute!

This next card by Tracey uses the new super cute Lots of Bots stamp set found on page 82. It also uses the new In Color Rich Razzleberry. So fun!

Deal of the Week--July 6-12

Here is this week's Deal: almost 30% off the Big Shot Doctor's Bag! Wow! The regular price is $69.95. The sale price is $49.99. I love the Doctor's bag! It holds the Big Shot machine plus some dies. Perfect for storing or taking your Big Shot with you. Remember, you have until 10 minutes until the next deal is announced to order your "deal of the week." So that means 1:50 our time on Monday the 13th.

New Stuff--Part 2

Here are a couple of more cards from my swapping group:

This first card is by Jane and uses the yummy new In Color Soft Suede. Don't you just love the fantastic new polka dotted ribbon?! You can purchase all the In Colors in the polka dotted ribbon. The stamp set used is Asian Artistry which is a level 2 Hostess-only stamp set.

The next card is by Dawn and uses the new Autumn Days stamp set found on page 92 in the new catalog. I love how she used the Top Note die!

New Stuff--Part 1

I've mentioned before that I am part of a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators who swaps cards periodically. The last swap we had was from our Preview orders (before each catalog begins, SU allows us to order a few select items).

I love swapping with other demonstrators because each of us has our own style and supplies we use. For this past swap, the due date snuck up on me and I was working until 1 in the morning getting my swaps ready! Oops! My swap is below and uses the new Circle Circus stamp set found on page 129 and some of the new In-Colors: Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, & Crushed Curry. The card looks a little funky in the picture, but looks much cuter in person!

This next card was made by LeAnn Greff and uses the new For All You Do stamp set found on page 118 in the new catalog. I just love the color combination she used: Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, and Garden Green.

I will post a couple of cards each day for the next couple of days. Enjoy!
