Collar Fold Friendship Card

Today, I want to share with you the Collar Fold Technique.

I had never tried this technique when the Stamping with the Stars group decided to create and share this type of card.

Since I didn’t have a clue how to do it, I do what I always do when I need creative inspiration…

I searched Pinterest for “Collar Fold” and lickity split, up popped tons of inspiration and instructional videos!

I love the fact that this technique is…

  1. Super Easy
  2. Can be used for any occasion
  3. a Great way to use Designer Series Paper

So…

Let’s see what the STARS have created!

 

Some of my favorite things about this card…

  • the sentiment and font, I love the combination of cursive and type
  • Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper, which will be retiring soon
  • the Collar Fold allows you to enjoy both sides of this beautiful paper

Strong & Beautiful Diorama Card

The Strong & Beautiful Diorama card is a combination of several different ideas that came together beautifully!

The Stamping with the Stars group decided to create and share a Pop-Up Diorama card.

I had never made one before, but it was fun, easy and I am sure I will be making more in the future.

So…

Let’s see what everyone has created!

 

I love EVERYTHING about this card.

  • the soft colors-Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam, Fresh Fig
  • the muted patterns on the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper
  • and of course, the Sparkle Glimmer Paper

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.
