Stamp-a-Stack October 5

Here are two of the cards we will be making at my October Stamp-a-Stack. The class is Sunday, October 5 at 2:00.  The cost is $15.  We will make a total of 8 cards--2 of 4 different designs.

Learn the Starburst technique and see how easy it is to create beautiful cards with the Work of Art stamp set (which is my personal favorite!). We will also be using the Calling All Heroes photopolymer stamp set to make an adorable card perfect for the little or big hero in your life!
As with most of my card classes, you will have the freedom to choose from various sentiments to make the type of cards you need most.

If you wish to attend the class, please RSVP and send payment by September 21 so that I have enough class kits prepared.  Don't forget to bring your own adhesive.

Swap sample #2

Here is another swap I made using items out of the new Holiday Catalog.  Yes, I know it's a little early for a Christmas card, but how could I pass up this adorable tree and matching punch?  You know you want it, too! 

This card uses the Festival of Trees photopolymer stamp set (#135059, $15.95) and matching Tree Punch (#135859, $16.95).  I love this set!  It has 5 different trees and a few different ways of "dressing" them up.  It only comes in the photopolymer set.  The "joy" stamp is from the Endless Wishes photopolymer stamp set (#136829, $15.95).

I also used the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack (#135824, $6.95).  These little paper stacks are 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" and include 4 each of 12 double sided designs for a total of 48 sheets of paper.  I like to use these because they're cheaper than a full pack of designer paper and because I waste less paper when I cut into them.

My Digital Studio

 Images copyright Stampin' Up!

Today I want to share with you a quick project I put together for my husband's grandmother.  Her birthday is July 4 and we celebrate every year with a party at her house.  My husband took some pictures with his cell phone and wanted to give them to her in a frame or something.  The pictures he took weren't very clear when we printed them out, so I decided to dress them up a bit using the My Digital Studio program from Stampin' Up!  This was a very quick project due to time, but she loved it.
