Avant Garden Copper Thank You

Handmade card created with Stampin' Up! Avant Garden and So Very Much shared by Darla Olson at inkheaven

Beautiful thank you card created with Avant Garden with copper embossing.

This swap card is so soft and pretty and yet it has a touch of bold created by the copper embossing. This gorgeous card was created by fellow demo, Mary Wesche.
Mary stamped the Avant Garden flowers on whisper white card and then covered the whisper white layer with the vellum cardstock which has the thank you sentiment embossed on the front in copper. Avant Garden and the So Very Much stamp sets used to create this card are both FREE Sale-A-bration sets! That makes it a “free” card, right?  lol!

Christmas, Birthdays, Snow Way!

Fun Handmade Card Design Great for those Christmas Birthdays at Inkheaven!

I adore what fellow demonstrator Kirsteen Gill did with the Birthday Fiesta Bundle when she created this card. It is such a hoot! (Do llamas hoot?) While she used the sentiment, “It’s Christmas already?” I think this card design would make a fabulous birthday card for those who celebrate their birthday around the Christmas holiday! This card is sure to bring a smile to their face and make their day extra special!

This card makes me want to OWN the Birthday Fiesta Bundle! If you want to own one too, shop with me at my inkheaven by clicking here: www.darlaolson.stampinup.net.

For your convenience, I have provided a list of most of the items Kirsteen used creating this fun card. Clicking on any of the images will also take you to my 24/7 online store. Thank you so much for stopping by.

Peace & Happiness To You

Handmade Christmas Card Idea Using Stitched With Cheer at Inkheaven

I love this swap card created by fellow demonstrator, Maria Probe, featuring this fabulous sentiment! Who doesn’t wish for peace and happiness for their loved ones? Great things about this card:

  • The sentiment really pops out and is nicely framed with the holly and berries for a great focal point
  • Small amount of Presents and Pinecones DSP anchors the bottom and provides a nice color combo and ties into the holly and berries on the focal point
  • It has a great subtle stamped background on the top 2/3rds of the card base
  • It has a nice pop of cherry cobbler dividing the background into 1/3 and 2/3 and framing the focal point
Well done, Maria! Love your card immensely! It’s a favorite!

Have Some Spooky Fun!

Hello Stampin’ Friends!

Isn’t this swap card cute? I love it! This card was created by fellow demonstrator, Kivonne Tucker. I adore the tree in the Halloween Scenes Dies and was totally surprised by how tiny it was when this swap came! I don’t know why I thought it was bigger. If you’d like to see a comparison to the tree from Thoughtful Branches – you can check out my afternoon tea and card share video on FB Live video at the bottom of this post.

I love how Kivonne placed everything on the glimmer paper background for a sweet focal point for her card.

For your convenience, here is a list of most of the items she used in the creation of this card. Clicking on any of the images will take you to my 24/7 online store where you can shop to your hearts content. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Look Who’s Turning 29 (Again)

This humorous swap card was created by fellow demonstrator, Teresa Apperson.  She selected her color combo from the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper that she used to accent the sides of the card. The color combo is soft and pretty and the confetti in the paper adds a little pop of extra color. Teresa used the Number of Years bundle which is on the retired list so if you would like to create this card, don’t delay in visiting my 24/7 online store to purchase what you need as items on the retired list are only available while supplies last!

Striking Rose Wonder Sympathy Card

This striking Rose Wonder sympathy card is absolutely stunning in its simplicity! This swap card was created by fellow demonstrator, Mary Wesche. She also WOWED me with the inside of her creation! Take a look…

See what I mean? Where is the WOW Facebook emoticon when you need it? This card is so stunning and simple that I need to sit down a stamp a little stack and hope that I don’t need them!

Nuts and Feathers

Hello Autumn! Birds of a feather are flocking together, acorns crunching underneath my feet; the landscape is going neutral as the foliage puts on one last valiant show of balzing color in the face of an approaching Winter! This swap card created by Becky Tuttle is a nice welcome to Fall. I love how she used the Stampin’ Spritzer to spatter the background, it somehow conveys the “messiness” of Fall as dead foliage falls to the ground and gets blown around by the swirling wind. The neutral background with a pop of color is very “Fallish!” Here is a video that shows how to use the Stampin’ Spritzer:
