2013 Birthday Blowout Stamp-A-Stack

Tomorrow I'm hosting my annual Birthday Blowout Stamp-A-Stack. My guests can choose either the "express" option (one card of each for $5.00) or the full SAS option – 12 cards for $15.00. If you live in the area and would like to join us, send me an email! Here are the three cards we will be making:


The first card uses my newest stamp set – SWALLOWTAIL.  I've seen some gorgeous examples using this stamp set, and I wanted to give my spin to it.  The butterfly punch is new too.

The second card features FEELING SENTIMENTAL, a Sale-A-Bration stamp set, and Parker's Patterns DSP.  If you spend $50.00, you can get this vintage-feel stamp set for FREE!  Pennants are quite the rage right now in crafting.

The third card is inspired by fellow demonstrator, Mary Fish.  I used the Sale-A-Bration stamp set PATTERNED OCCASIONS and the Sycamore Street DSP and Button and Ribbon Pack.

Well, I hope my stampers enjoy making these cards!

Honeycomb Heart Technique Valentine Card

Honeycomb Heart Technique


This is one of the techniques I taught at a recent Technique Tuesday stamp class.  This Honeycomb Heart technique uses 8 punched shapes and some Tombow glue.  I love our Polka Dot DSP!  It was perfect for this card.  After you punch out the hearts, fold them in half and then glue them together, tapping them on the folded section so they line up correctly.

Here's a side view of the technique –

I used the Patterned Occasions Sale-A-Bration stamp set for the latte image – just colored in the heart with a Real Red marker.

The tent card format is one of my favorites – the base is 8" x 4" .  Just be sure to use your Stampin' Up! grid paper or an envelope to make sure you place your tent "topper" at the right spot (oh, and don't forget to only put adhesive on the bottom portion of that topper!).
