Stampin' Up! cards

"I recently attended a business meeting at my Upline's house to discuss business matters pertaining to my Stampin' Up! business.  I love these meetings because not only do we get to swap ideas and inspiration, but a couple of us usually have a card or project to share as well.
This card was designed by a fellow demonstrator.  The card stock colors used were Basic Black, Whisper White, and Cherry Cobbler and Glossy.  The Inks used were Black Staz-On and Cherry Cobbler.  The stamp sets are Circle Circus, and Curly Cute.  The fun buttons were created by brayering Cherry Cobbler ink onto glossy card stock.  That was then run through the Big Shot with the buttons galore embosslet. Then it was finished off with a Stampin' Up! adhesive pearl.

This is one of the cards that I made for the meeting.  I love the look of this faux quilting technique.  I even purchased the Square Lattice embossing folder from Stampin' Up!  for the sole purpose of creating quilted cards.  This card uses Old Olive and Very Vanilla card stock and Vintage Garden DSP.  I also used the Square Lattice embossing folder and the ribbon is also Old Olive.
Here is a second version of the card using the same supplies, as above, but I did some stamping on this one.  I used the Curly Cute stamp set with some Chocolate Chip ink.  In this card there was no spaces between the DSP squares.  I think I like this look a little better than the spaces.  It is easier to do, and has a much more finished look.

Now, this adorable card was not one that we made at our meeting.  It is one my Upline made for a graduate that she knows.  I just thought it was too cute not to share!  I just love the owl punch from Stampin' Up! b If you would like to purchase any of these supplies for your own creative works, and you do not have your own STampin' Up! Demonstrator, feel free to email me to place an order.
