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#287: Let’s Celebrate!

Celebrate!

With the 4th of July comes plenty of opportunities to celebrate! We have so much to be thankful for and celebrate this great country of ours!

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

This week I was inspired by the red, white and blue color combination and the upcoming holiday.

I love the fun feeling of this card, from the color combination to the gingham ribbon, it reminds me of summertime.

 

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You Thinlit is the star of this card created for DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge featuring Bouquet Blooms Stamp Set and Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon. For details click through to my blog #CrackedPotStamper #BouquetBlooms #celebrationcards

 

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

  • Stamp Set: Bouquet Blooms
  • Paper: Real Red, Night of Navy, Whisper White, Gold Glimmer
  • Ink: Real Red
  • Accessories: Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon, Pearlized Doilies, Gold Faceted Gems
  • Tools: Celebrate You Thinlits, Sublte 3D Dynamic TIEF, Big Shot, Stamparatus

It’s All in the Details:

  • The tone on tone stamping adds interest without screaming “LOOK AT ME!”
  • I absolutely love the new Subtle 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!!
    • Because just like the name states, it is subtle but adds such a WOW to any card.
  • TIP: Stamp first, Emboss second. This will ensure you get a nice clean image.

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge No. 230: Moroccan Nights Shine

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #230-Product Spotlight: Retiring Stamps shared by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a "Product Spotlight" Challenge, featuring retiring stamps. 

This week I was inspired by saying farewell to some of my OLD favorites while making room for my NEW favorites.

Reminds me of the song we sang at Girl Scout camp, "make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other is gold".

That being sang, hmm I mean said, I love the silver sparkle of this card. This card was my daughter's high school graduation announcement-beautiful and sparkly just like her!

Stampin' Up! Moroccan Nights card created by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper

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

  • Stamp Set: Moroccan Nights    
  • Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Silver Glimmer Paper, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
  • Ink: Versamark
  • Accessories: Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Large Number Framelits, Big Shot, Foam Adhesive Strips
  • It's All in the Details:
    • Three layers of sparkle give this card some serious "WOW'!
      1. Silver Glimmer Paper
      2. Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper peeking out of the cutout numbers
      3. and Silver Embossing is the "frosting on the cupcake"


Always take the scenic route.

DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #220: Celebrating You

Time for Thursday Challenge – Woo Hoo!!

This week it is a "Color My World" Challenge.

This is the Inspiration.

Stampin' Up! DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #220

And this is my interpretation.

If this card looks familiar to you, it is because I chose to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) the cattie. 

I absolutely loved the original (which you can find on page 11 of the 2017 Occasions catalog) and I knew immediately that I had to recreate it with a few minor changes.

BTW, if you don't have the catalog and you want one, please leave me a comment and I will mail one out to you.

Stampin' Up! DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge #220 card created by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper



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

Stamp Set: Birthday Blast

Paper: Sahara Sand, Soft Sky, Shimmery White and Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper

Ink: Soft Sky

Accessories: Metallic Foil Doilies, Blushing Bride Baker's Twine, Enamel Shapes-Subtles and Rhinestones

It's All in the Details: Less is more, I kept it very simple.

  • Sahara Sand:  5-1/2" x 8-1/2"-scored & folded at 4-1/4".
  • Shimmery White: 4" x 5-1/4" 
  • Soft Sky (banner): 1-1/2" x 5"
  • Blushing Bride Glimmer: punch 2" circle

TIP: Punch banner piece first and then stamp sentiment second – which is opposite of what I usually do.



Always take the scenic route.

And this is my interpretation.

 

Paisleys & Posies card created by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper

Card #1 with Enamel Shapes

 

Paisleys & Posies card created by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper

Card #2 with Rhinestones

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

  • Stamp Set: Paisleys & Posies and Flourishing Phrases
  • Paper: Basic Black and Whisper White
  • Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Pumpkin Pie
  • Accessories: Enamel Shapes-Regals (card #1) and Rhinestones (card #2)
  • It's All in the Details:
    • As I was pulling out the ink pads for this project I realized that I had absolutely NO idea where my Melon Mambo ink pad is located!
    • I did a quick search in all the places I could have possibly strategically placed it (read misplaced it) beside where it belonged and I came up with NADA…no ink pad.
    • So…I improvised and it worked out pretty well.
    • Yes, that is a baby wipe and ink refill. Simply drop some ink on the wipe and use as you would if you had the ink pad.

 

Improvised Ink Pad, Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper

no ink pad…no problem

 



Remember…

"You is kind. You is smart You is important."

Blessings and Joy to you,
