My Luv 2 Stamp Group had a great stamping day a couple weeks ago.. we call it Stamp A Rama.  Each person brings a project to demonstrate and then we all make it.  I wanted to share those wonderful projects with you over the next several days.

This is the gorgeous box Sharon Howard taught us how to make

featuring GINGHAM GARDEN Designer Paper (#129310)

found on pg 153 of the NEW Stampin' Up! Catalog

Gingham garden box 1

The Box top and flower are made with the Gingham Garden Paper.

Gingham garden box 5

Sharon gave each of us a bazillion embellishments and allowed us to custom design our box however we wanted to!

Gingham garden box 3

I just loved the addition of the curled skinny strips of cardstock .. use a skewer or paintbrush handle to curl the cardstock - so easy!

Gingham garden box 4

Here is Sharon giving us the instructions:

Folded Paper Flower card by Vinnie - Stamp a Rama - Sept. 2011

November Customer Thank You Gift!  Limited time!

Free Big Shot or $100 Free product offer extended through 11/11/11

------------------------------------------------------------

So i just have to ask.. did anyone see my new blog header?  I took the pumpkin photo YEARS ago and thought I'd add some MDS images to it for my November header.

Anyway... on to today's card... A Folded Paper Flower card by Vinnie for our Luv 2 Stamp Group Stamp a Rama event!  

Vinnie 1 copyVinnie saw this idea in our Stampin' Success magazine (it's a montly magazine exclusively for Stampin' Up! demonstrators, YOU can be one too!) :)  This card idea came from my friend Kerry Schwenneker.. I met Kerry many years ago on a Stampin' Up! cruise!   Anyway.. this was a winning contest entry and Vinnie used the idea for her shoebox swap project.

  Vinnie cards

Step 1: punch out 7 circles with designer paper.. this will really work with almost any size circle... I think we used 1-3/8".  Punch out an 8th circle with cardstock (shown in pink here) to use as your backing.

Step 2: fold the 7 DSP circles into cones as shown below

Vinnie pieces 1

Step 3: Put adhesive (we used Snail) on the cardstock circle and start adhering the DSP folded circles onto it to form the flower petals.

Vinnie pieces 2

Step 4: use a paper piercer and mat to poke a hole in the center and add a brad.

Vinnie flowr

Step 5.  Add to card!

Vinnie letterpress
We also used the Festive Finishes Pick a Pattern Letterpress plate (pg 21 holiday mini) with Old Olive ink to add the stripes to the card.

Holiday Stocking projects from Joy and Cindee

November Customer Thank You Gift!  Limited time!

Free Big Shot or $100 Free product offer extended through 11/11/11

------------------------------------------------------------

Joy and Cindee both shared a Holiday Stocking project at our Luv 2 Stamp Group Stamp a Rama event in Sept. ... they were both fun and so cute!

Cindee 1Cindee showed us that simply by bringing the "cuff" of the stocking down a ways, this stocking will fit into the Stampin' Up! Medium Square envelopes!! whohoo!

You can find the Medium Square envelopes online here or on pg 182 in the Stampin' Up! catalog, item #107289.

Cindee 3 envelope

 I love how Cindee used the Stocking Accents die to add accessories to the stocking.  She also made them "3-d" which was adorable.. just die cut 2 or 3 of the same stocking accent image, fold them in 1/2 vertically and snail them back to back to back to create the "fan fold" look.

You can find the Holiday Stocking Die and the Holiday Stocking Accents die on pg 24 of the Holiday mini catalog. 

  Cindee 2

Joy's stocking die project was accessorized with the snowflake punch.

Luv 2 Stamp Group - Stamp a Rama June event, part 1

One of the activities I offer my direct recruits and our Power Team (supervisors and above) is a quarterly Stamp A Rama event - it's a shoebox swap.  We each bring a finished card or 3-d project with enough supplies for the rest of us to go around and make each project.  We always have a theme, usually related to the current mini catalog or holiday. 

Enjoy these projects that my wonderful gals brought to our June Stamp A Rama.

Below, project by Vinnie... I LOVED the Stencil image on GLOSSY cardstock.. wow.. so yummy !

Vinnie

Below, Joy showed us the "tile technique" using a Score Pal, you can also use the SU! Fiskars cutter and your bone folder to make the 1/2" grid of score lines, THEN stamp your image on top. Looks like tiles!

Such happy cards.... such fun new products...

I just love these happy flower cards... I made these for our Stamp A Rama Luv 2 Stamp Group event on Saturday.. we had a shoebox swap and all the gals brought WONDERFUL projects!! I loved them all. 

Here is my project from our event:

Pb all

I used the Greehouse Gala DSP on the bottom 1/2 of the card, but couldn't decide between Poppy Parade, Tangerine Tango or the reverse side of the DSP for the top 1/2 ! :)  I let each participant choose which one they'd like on the top.

These are 4x4 Pear Pizzazz cards, and the flower is made using the new large 2-3/8" scallop circle punch in Daffodil Delight, with a Peach Parfait 1-3/4" circle center.  I ran the circles through the Big Shot with the polkadot embossing folder and then the edges are sponged with Tangerine Tango ink.  Aren't they just so HAPPY!!??  :)

Below... option with Tangerine Tango top 1/2 of the card:

Pb 1

Below... option with Poppy Parade top 1/2 of the card:

Pb 2

Below... option with the other 1/2 of the green flower DSP design:

Pb 3

Below... close up of the tag... love the little flower punched with the Itty Bitty flower Punch. Label stamp is from the new set called Perfect Punches. I "stamped" the center of the little flower with a small pencil eraser dipped in Tangerine Tango ink.
