2011 Summer Mini Catalog Samples

How about some samples using current products? Yesterday a couple of friends came over for a stamping day. We had a lot of fun creating these cards - all were CASE-d from cards I'd seen on various blogs.

This first one uses the Flower Garden Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on page 24 of the Summer Mini Catalog. I ran some Perfect Plum DSP through the Big Shot with this embossing folder, taped it to the Whisper White cardstock, and then lightly sanded over the top of the image. This works great with our DSP, but you won't get the same effect with our cardstock because the color goes all the way through our cardstock. (I learned that the hard way!)

This card was originally created by Deb Currier, who is in my Upscale Swap Group. It uses the Strength & Hope stamp set on page 27 of the mini catalog. For every purchase of this stamp set or the Strength & Hope Digital Kit, Stampin' Up! will donate $2 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This is a beautiful stamp set and purchasing it will benefit a worthy cause.
We made one more card that I'll show to you another time. (I'm just a tease, aren't I?)

Until next time...
