Swap Card-Annual Catalog

A Swap Card is a great way to exchange ideas & pretty cards with others…it is one of my favorite things about being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator along with …

  • the 20-25% discount on products
  • friendships with other demonstrators and customers
  • sneak peeks at upcoming products
  • and an opportunity to be a part of the Stampin’ Up! family!

I participated in a Card Swap way back in June but never shared the cards I received.

So…I decided it was better to share them late than never share them at all.

The variety is amazing, I hope you enjoy them.

DSC#245 – Barn Quilt Card & history

Barn Quilt, who thought of it and why?

Well, let me tell you I was wondering the same thing and did a little research.

I’ve seen them painted on barns and thought they were pretty and a nice way to dress up a barn.

I had no idea of the back story until today when I learned of a lady named Donna Sue Groves and her desire to honor her mama, Maxine, by painting a quilt square and hanging it on the barn. The link to their story is below in the supply list section.
For DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #245. Featuring Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. For details and instructions click through to my blog. #crackedpotstamper #stampinup #quiltbuilderframelits

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a “Home Sweet Home” Challenge.

This week I was inspired by…

  • the wall of lovely wood planks
  • And I’ve been itching to play with the new Quilt Builder Framelits that I was able to pre-order (one of my fav perks of being a demonstrator) from the Holiday Catalog (coming Sept 1).

I love that there is absolutely no stamping on this card.

  2. Die cut largest scalloped square (Layering Squares Framelits) from Night of Navy (3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″), quilt frame from Pool Party (3″ x 3″) and quilt pieces from Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (3″ x 3″)-see TIP below.
  3. Adhere quilt frame to scalloped square, add quilt pieces inside frame, adhere quilt square to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Address an envelope, write a message inside and drop in the mailbox to brighten someone’s day.

TIP: Use 2 different pieces of Wood Texture DSP for quilt pieces-flipping the corner and triangle pieces for color variation. Scroll to bottom of post to see other options.

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge No. 236: Flourishing Phrases & Swirly Scribbles

DOSstamper STARS Thursday Challenge No.236 - Color My World

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a "Color My World" Challenge. 

This week I was inspired by a card in the 2017-18 Annual Catalog. Do you recognize it?

DOSstamper STARS Thursday Challenge No.236 - Flourishing Phrases Swirly Bird stamp sets card created by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper

Due to a family emergency, I flew home to Iowa 10 days ago. I have been trying to be crafty in my mom's craft room…not an easy task.

I had to scrounge around a bit but I did finally find some things that I could combine to create this beautiful card. 

  • I now know what she will be getting for her birthday and Christmas.

I love the versatility of this card, with a few changes (colors or sentiment or both) you could have a completely different card.

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down to bottom for complete supply list and links)

Stamp Set: Swirly Birds and Flourishing Phrases

Paper: Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, Calypso Coral and Whisper White

Ink: Sweet Sugarplum, Calypso Coral, Whisper White Craft

Accessories: Swirly Scribbles Thinlits, Layering Circles Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Linen Thread

It's All in the Details:

  1. Stamp greeting (Flourishing Phrases stamp set) with Whisper White Craft Ink on Calypso Coral cardstock, die cut with Stitched Shapes Framelit.  Die cut scrap of Whisper White cardstock with scalloped circle from Layering Circle Framelits. Adhere circles together.
  2. Stamp flower image (Swirly Bird stamp set) on Whisper White cardstock with Calypso Coral ink. Stamp circular images (Swirly Bird stamp set) on Whisper White cardstock with Sweet Sugarplum ink. Die cut with coordinating framelits (Swirly Scribbles Thinlits).
  3. Die cut leaf shapes (Swirly Scribbles Thinlits) from Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper. 
  4. Die cut 4 large and 4 small swirls (Swirly Scribbles Thinlits) from Whisper White yardstick. Using Fine Tip Glue Pen, adhere swirls to 3-3/4" x 5" Whisper White layer, trim edges. Adhere Whisper White layer to folded 11" x 4-1/4" Calypso Coral card base.
  5. Tie bow with approximately 6" piece of Linen Thread, adhere with Glue Dot.
  6. Adhere flowers and leaves using Glue Dots and Stampin' Dimensionals.
