I know that you all have read in my posts that I’d love to have you share your projects with me. Several years back I had several people share cards with me and I enjoyed blogging about them. And that was lots of fun. Finally this week I again have one of my readers who’s shared with me. Not only did she share her own project with me, but she also shared one of her daughter’s projects.
Using One of My Fun Folds
Marilyn Ennis shared with me – and now all of us! – a card she made using the Super Simple Fun Fold I posted a week ago Tuesday.
I just love the way Marilyn has used printed papers from the same Designer Series Paper set that I used in the original – Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper. The reason that this is a “Specialty” set is that many of the prints have Gold Foil or Copper Foil accents. The print that she used for the small card that is the center element – and the “fun fold” – has these foil accents. It really helps bring out the Cajun Craze color, not only in the print itself but also in the non-foil print in the background.
She Stamped Her Envelope!
I love stamping envelopes, not just to make them pretty (a good idea anyway), but also to give a hint about what may be in the envelope. This acorn is not only on the inside of the little center card. It’s also on the envelope! What fun is that?! I really need to share with you the envelopes that I stamp to go with my cards.
And a Bonus Card
Marilyn also shared with me a card that her daughter had made with a stamp set that’s in the current Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. The stamp set is called Game On. Marilyn said that this is the perfect set for someone who lives in Las Vegas.
I love the way that she cut out the hand of cards that had been stamped in red and laid them over the other images stamped in black. Red and black are the traditional colors of playing cards, of course.
And She Stamped Her Envelope!
Have I said that before? Well, yes I have! Let’s start stamping envelopes more!
The Bottom Line
Two messages for today. For sure message number one is that I LOVE TO SHARE YOUR CARDS! Ooops, did I say that in all caps? Oh, well. The second is that it’s fun mixing up old and new stamp sets.
As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I don’t have much in the way of old (as in retired) stamps or other products. So I don’t get the chance to mix up the old and the new. That’s because I like to show things that are available for you to buy at the time that I post about them. That way if you see something you like, you just might buy it from Stampin’ Up! through my personal Stampin’ Up! store. That way I get credit for the sale. If you see something you like and it’s in the carousel of products below, AND you click on it, you’ll be taken directly to my Stampin’ Up! store. There’s no obligation to purchase anything by clicking. But if you do, you’ll be able to buy it from me!
Happy Stamping – and SHARE THOSE PROJECTS! (Oops, all caps again)
