Abundant Hope Card

Stampin'Up! now is offering clear mount blocks, the stamps are not see through the blocks are. I was not to sure about what to expect, so I ordered Abundant Hope in the Clear. So far I love it. I made 24 of these cards for a swap. I had no problems with the stamp falling off or coming off when I cleaned it. It was very easy to put the stamp together and it definetly cuts down on the space for storage. Since, the rubber is the same type used with the wood mount, the inking still works perfect! I know some clear mount stamps do not pick up ink very well. The supplies I used for making this card were Abundant Hope stamp set, Black Stazon, watercolor crayons, aqua painter, watercolor paper, pretty in pink card stock, Shades of Spring DSP, Orchid Opulence card stock. I also used the New Scallop Trim Punch for the side.

Occassions Mini Valentine's Card

This card uses the new Designer punch, Scallop trim, ( You can get this free in the Sale-A-Bration catalog with a $50 order purchase), the jumbo roller is also in the Occasion's mini, I(Love) Love. This mini has way too many items that I want. The new punch design is easy to store and locks to help it store in a smaller area. I wasn't sure if I would like the new design, but so far so good.I also used the Big Shot Texturz plate, but you can't see it in this picture.

Scrapbook page

I love the look of this scrapbook page. I used the DSP Night and Day. I did not think I would like as much as I do. I got the idea from Lisa who said she loves to make Christmas Cards with black and white. I like how the punches work great and the Stamped images go perfectly. I think this might be one of my favorite pages, I've done in awhile.

Christmas Cards

This is one of the Christmas Cards I sent out this year. I love the Patterned Pines stamp set. I embossed it with White and used Elegant Eggplant and Always Artichoke.

These are some other cards that I designed or cased from other Stampin'up! demonstrators,
