Serene Scenery Card Workshop

I really like these awesome cards we made at a Stamping Up Workshop I hostessed at my local Demo's home a couple of days ago.   They are so easy using the designer paper from Stampin Up's Serene Scenery Stack.  All of the sentiments are stamped directly onto the designer paper.  Some are heat embossed, but don't have to be.  The boots are the only image stamped and colored seperately, fussy cut, and adhered with Dimensionals.  So easy!

CYCI #131
I haven't done an online challenge in a looooong time, but it just so happened that I was working with this exact color scheme on some other cards, so I figured, what the heck! 

The supply list for this card can be found by following this link.

Happy Healing

This card was made for a small shoe box swap I attended with a group of fun stampers.

I used patterned paper from the Athentique Blissful stack and fiber paper from DCWV.  Did you know you can't use a tape runner on fiber paper?  The tape runner just doesn't work and will make a mess of your tape...and runner...and paper...ask me how I know...  Anyway, use double-sided tape.
The rest of the supplies:

Card stock:  Crushed Curry (Stampin' Up!) and white
Image: Simply Sketched (SU)
Dies: Gina Marie Designs (there is no name of the particular die design on the package)
Sentiment: And Many More (SU)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and SU Crushed Curry (to color the bird with a blender pen or aqua painter
Punches: Word Window (SU) and Modern Label (SU)
Ribbon: (SU) (I think the ribbon may be Hello Honey)
Wink of Stella Brush: Clear (to go over the bird)
Dimensionals (SU)

Follow this link to see several additional cards I made using the leftover patterned paper scraps from the swap cards.

Blissful Scraps

I had some leftover scraps from some card kits I made for an upcoming shoe box swap.  All of these cards were made using leftover scraps plus some additional card stock, etc.  The papers are from the Authentique 6x6 Bundle Collection: Blissful. 

Follow this link to see the actual swap card.

Pretty Petals Card Set

A friend gave me a bunch of scrap pieces from Stampin' Up's Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack.  I decided to use the scraps to make some fun cards using a variety of techniques including Sunburst/Starburst, Bargello, Postage Blocks, and Log Cabin Quilt cards.  The frog image is stamped from the set "You're Sublime."
