Crimped Envelope Pocket Card & Easter Basket

These items are what we will be making at my Stamp Club meeting tomorrow night. The crimper is a useful tool and gives a lovely effect in this card. The little basket is a nice little gift using strips of Designer Series Paper but the eggs are the best part!!!

Autumn Mini Catalogue Launch

This card and Treat bag have been made using one of the new In-colours "Rich Razzleberry". Stampin' Up have brought in 3 new in-colours. The stamp set used here is "Cottage Garden" with matching Designer Series Paper "Cottage Wall" the punch tab is one of the new Sizzlit dies called "Lots of Tags" which works with the Cuttlebug or the new Big Shot. From 1st April Stampin' Up will be selling the "Big Shot" die cutting machine. If any of you have a "Cuttlebug" the "Big Shot" is very similar. There is a range of embossing folders and dies in the new Mini that work well in the Cuttlebug.

These cards have been made using the stamp set "Fox & Friends" a cute little set of animals.
Stampin' Up have introducted Clear-mount rubber stamps as well as the Wood mounted stamps. The clear mounted stamps come in a DVD box therefore take up less storage space. They are quite nice to use unlike some acrylic stamps I have used in the past. The card in the centre is a "waterfall" card and when you pull the tab all these little animals fall down. The card on the left is an "easel" card which stands up like an easel but can fold down flat for posting.

Both cards have been made using the "Manhattan Flower" embossing folder. Sorry the white card didn't photograph very well at all.
All these projects will be on display at my Launch Open House on Wednesday 31st March 10.00am - 12.00pm or 7.30 - 9.30pm. Don't forget bookings are essential.

Here are some cards that I have made with the some of the Sale-a-Bration stamp sets.
