Sunny Fun

Ok I love this set! What could be cuter then some cute little flip flops? I got the idea for this card on Stampin' Connection, which is a site exclusively for Stampin' Up Demonstrators. This image is from the Sunny Fun set which is available from Stampin' Up only until August 31st! It features craft colored cardstock, white cardstock and some patterned papers I had on hand. Not to mention ribbons and buttons! I colored the images in with my Marvelous markers (aka Stampin' Write Markers) and then added in some white gel pen, then added some rhinestones to a pair of the flip flops. I made these for the summer theme for my Addicted to Cardmaking swap on my Favorite MB.

A Technique Page

You are probably wondering what all of these little squares are for. Well once a month when our group of Stampin' Up Demonstrators, the PhillyInkers, get together we make a page for our Technique book. We take turns making up the squares for our technique page. In July I did one of the pages. My Technique was the Shaving Cream Technique. This is a lot of fun to do, although a little messy. But I love how different each page came out a little differently. When the squares were dry, I used Basic Black Craft ink to stamp on the flower image from Upsy Daisy.
At the meetings we adhere the squares down to Top Notes which are pre-cut. On the reverse side of this, are the directions of how to do the technique. Below is a finished example.

June's Card Club cards

Each month I host a card club here in my home on the third Friday of each month. In June I wanted to showcase a now retired stamp set, "Pun Fun". I love this stamp set, and am sad to see it go, but it had to retire to make room for some new sets. :) I also wanted to incorporate some Designer Series Paper into some cards, and I came up with this idea. The Designer Paper (DSP) is from the 2010-2012 InColors Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack (117158), and I chose the Concord Crush paper. The cardstock is Pretty in Pink, as well as Whisper White. We then used the Stamp and Write (Marvelous Markers) markers to color in the images. Often times when I make the design for card club I feel like maybe something is missing, or maybe something should be changed. So this time when I demonstrated, I also made the cards without the designer paper, so that the ladies could see both versions, and they could choose which they liked better. I also chose a different image from the same "Pun Fun" set. The sentiments were included with the images, and we stamped them and punched them out with the word window punch, which we layered on a piece punched out with the Modern Label punch.
