It’s always fun to get together with my Stamp and Embellish Team.  In addition to all the fun we have there is always lots of sharing of ideas.  We share through Make and Takes and Swaps.  Swapping is fun regardless if you joined Stampin’ Up to build a business or if you joined for the 20% discount you receive on all your products.

These are swaps from our February meeting so you may see a few Sale-a-bration items on the cards. Hopefully they will be some of the items you received free when you placed your orders during Sale-a-bration.

This first card screams spring!  Leishman used some of the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper (132994) which happens to be my favorite this spring.

Gigi’s card uses the spot light technique using the Peaceful Petals Stamp Set (Wood 133104, Clear 133107).  It really looks great in person because she used Crystal Effects (101055) on the highlighted flowers which make them have dimension and shine.

Kim’s happy sunshine card just makes you want to smile.  The rays of the sun were made with the Banner Punch that will be available in the new catalog even though it was introduced during Sale-a-bration.  Happy Dance!

We’re always looking for ideas for a masculine card.  Cicely combined the Hardwood Background Stamp with the banners making a perfect masculine birthday card.

Then there’s mine…white on white with a little crumb cake in the Natural 5/8″ Chevron Ribbon (132982). It’s one of my favorite ribbons now.  Plus I’m also loving the Arrows Embossing Folder (132187).

If you have any question about  joining my Stamp and Embellish Team please pick up the phone and give me a call.  If you are local (Jasper, GA) our next meeting is this month – Sunday April 27th at 2:30 in the afternoon.  I would love for you to come as my guest so you can ask your questions in person.  For additional details click here.  If you just know you want to sign up and begin receiving your Stampin’ Up! products at a discount click here.

Have a happy Wednesday and try to make some time to stamp this week.
