All supplies Stampin’ Up!

Stamped by Karen Wagner

I received this in my mailbox (first holiday card of the year!) last week.  I love the colors:  Real Red, Old Olive and Night of Navy with the pop of Whisper White.  (Stampin’ Up colors are awesome, aren’t they?)   Karen stamped the main image from “Gifts Of Christmas”  (page 43, Stampin’ Up main catalog) in Real Red twice, cutting out the dove and adhering with a dimensional to pop it up.

Kay Watts - Swap Winner

So elegant in all black and white!  Kay was our swap contest winner with this number last month  She started with a Basic Black 5×5 card, embossed the left black card stock later with the Finial Press  Embossing Folder.   The sentiment,. tree and snowflake are from a set called Snow Swirled (one of my favs  – page 40, main SU catalog).   It looks like she stamped with versamark and then heat embossed with black powder, although you could stamp in black craft pigment ink and then clear embossing powder.   Love our wide black striped ribbon that sets it all off!

Deborah LaRue - Swap Winner for November

Our swap contest winner in November for our team get together!   Deb started out with a Real Red card, added a lightly sponged vanilla card stock layer, then some DSP, scallop edge in vanilla, more DSP.  The skinny black taffeta, red button and little bit of clear tinsel trim makes it extra special.

Matt and I have been staining fences, painting the office and moving furniture around this past week.  I need some stamping time so I’m heading to the stamp room!
