THE BLOG TOUR WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!!!

Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoyed the Royal Blog Tour. We were limited to 4 pictures, so I had to take some of my pictures down for the tour. Now that it is over, I can share the insides of the cards and tell you a bit more about them. FIRST I want to thank my new subscribers and SECOND - I want to thank everyone who left a comment on my creations. Ya'll just MADE my WEEK! I used the "Hello Again" Stamp Set that is brand new in our catalog. I wanted to show different uses for a small stamp set so this is what I came up with! I hope you enjoy my samples.


Catalog # `113780

Card One - I used the Soft Suede Designer Paper with Vanilla Card stock. I really like this new DSP!





Here is the card opened up!




Now for Card Two - I used the Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry Papers. I accordian folded the bottom part and used it on some of the circles for texture. These colors are so bright! I am adjusting! He He






For the Inside - I just wanted something fun and funky!



Card Three - I used Bermuda Bay Card Stock with some of the Soft Suede Designer Paper. I used my white gel pen to make some stitching and the centers for the little flowers. I made the big flower with the scallop punch. I love the crushed curry ribbon and flowers. I punched out the butterfly and then stamped it on each side to give it some pazazz!




I just stamped a bit on the inside for interest. I hate making cards where I forget or run out of time (last minute me - always late) to put something cool on the inside!



And My Final Card - I changed it a little bit so that the front and back were identical. I used the Bella Bleu #113974 - isn't it pretty?



Here is the inside of the card where I popped up all of the butterflies and the flower on the front with crystal effects. It is shiny in person!




These cards were fun to make and I used all Stampin' Up! products. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me. I hope to see you soon!
