Card Swap…Day 3

Today is the final showcase of cards from my first Just Stampin’ Card Swap. I can tell from all your comments the past two days that you have enjoyed these beautiful cards as much as I have!  The collection of cards might not all have current Stampin’ Up! products, but every card gives good ideas for color combinations, layouts, and techniques. Let the inspiration continue with some more lovely layers and fun folds…

WOW! Please leave a comment below to let these amazing artists know how much you love their creations.

If you missed the previous posts of the Card Swap, you can see those projects here:

I had so much fun opening all this “Happy Mail” and sharing the variety of beautiful cards with you. Each creation had something I want to incorporate into future projects. I will certainly do another card swap and next time I hope more of you will join us and share your creations! I really love how we inspire each other as we share handmade kindness. Thank you to everyone who left comments for these talented stampers…I’m sure they could feel the love!

I am super excited as there is a lot happening this week!  Here’s a look at the week ahead…

  • Tuesday will be my 200th blog post!  Woo Hoo! Time for another blog candy giveaway!
  • Wednesday is the monthly PALS Blog Hop…so much fun and inspiration!
  • Thursday is another special day… Can you guess what that is?
  • Friday is the last day to sign up for Paper Pumpkin to receive this month’s kit.

Have a wonderful day and be sure to stop back all week!

U is for Up and Away Thinlits Dies

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I am showcasing the Up and Away Thinlits Dies and Lift Me Up Stamp Set.  I couldn’t stop playing with this bundle! Here’s 4 cards I made.

img_8951

My colors came from the Carried Away Designer Series Paper (Free with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration): Mint Macaron, Night of Navy, Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, Smokey Slate, and Whisper White.

The DSP coordinates with the Lift Me Up Bundle. The DSP panels on all 4 cards measure the same, 3 1/4 x 3 1/4, with a layer of cardstock just  a smidge (1/8″) more.  There’s so many different sentiments in this set which work for birthdays, congratulations, thank you, thinking of you, and love. Here’s a look at the Lift Me Up Bundle.

Check out this video showing all the uplifting possibilities!

I tried something different on each of my cards using the stamp set and dies.

img_8953 These two cards have stamped balloons which I then cut out with the framelits.  The one on the left I stamped twice, once on mint macaron and once on white.  I cut the top part of the mint macaron balloon and adhered it to the whisper white then popped it up on dimensionals.  I was trying to get the look of the balloons in the DSP.  The one on the left was easy to match the DSP by just stamping in different inks and running it through the Big Shot to cut it out.

These 2 cards use the Thinlits Die with the Precision Base Plate.  I love this die!!! It’s easy to get different colors perfectly sized to fit with the dies in the set.  I used some DSP for the card on the left and cardstock for the card on the right.  I turned the dies over and pieced them together like a puzzle and held them together with Tear & Tape.  Then I used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere the hot air balloon.  I added some rhinestone jewels to one and  adhered the balloons with dimensionals to lift them up.
