Summer Mini Catalog Swaps!

One of my favorite activities as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is to create Swap cards with fellow Demonstrators! Through the Stampin' Up! Demonstrator business web site, I found a group that wanted to swap cards using the Summer Mini Catalog products!

Oh, yeah!!! So, I got one of my downline, Wilma Henggeler to join in with me!

The first card was created by Wilma featuring the July 4th stamp set! She did a great job, including the Top Note Big Shot die cut, and love the fireworks on the card! And, did you notice the new Square Lattice Embossing Folder (in red)? Love it!!! Cardstock: Real Red, Night of Navy, Whisper White, ink: Real Red, Night of Navy, So Saffron, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/8 punch, real red ribbon, Sponge Dauber, Stampin' Dimensionals.

The next card was in the swaps I received, but it wasn't signed. So, I am sorry I cannot give proper credit to the artist. I really liked it because it shows how versatile the Island Oasis designer series paper is. (from the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog) This card doesn't look "tropical", but I just love the patterned paper. The stamp sets used are Favorite Thoughts set (again Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog, pg. 19) and Elements of Style (pg 12). Cardstock: Taken With Teal, Old Olive, & Very Vanilla.

I added two photos for you, so you can see the gatefold design! I will be sharing more of the great swaps soon! Thanks for visiting!!!

Punched Posies!

There is so much to share with you right now...Summer Mini Catalog, Retiring Stamp Sets, Retiring Decor' Element products, Color Renovation- retiring colors, and retiring accessories. So, today I wanted to focus on one of my favorite Stampin' Up! products, the AWSOME Stampin' Up! punches!!!

For today's card, I used Punched Poisies,a Level 2 Hostess set from the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog. This set coordinates with Stampin' Up! Punches, which makes for a quick project. I know many of you don't like cutting out stamped images, and on this card, I did't need to use the scissors on anything (except ribbon)!

Here are the ingredients:
cardstock, So Saffron, Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red, & Whisper White
Stamp set: Punched Posies, & One of a Kind (retiring June 30th)
Punches: Scallop Circle, XL Flower Fancy Flower (was from Occasions Mini catalog & is still available), 5 petal flower, Designer Label, & 1" circle.
Ink: Rose Red, So Saffron, Versamark
Accessories: Rose Red 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Sponge Daubers, Stampin' Dimensionals, Top Note Big Shot Die Cut, & Island Oasis Designer Paper (from Summer Mini Catalog).

And: Just a reminder...some of my favorite punches are retiring June 30th!

Here is the list of retiring punches: Trio Flower, Tag Corner, My Way, Spiral, Double Rectangle, Star (the small one), Horizontal Slot, & Slit! You can check them out at Just click, shop now, Last Chance Products, etc...
