SU Party Fun--it's a Sale-a-Bration!

Last night was our monthly get together for stamping fun!  We had a great time, lots of fun conversation and some great food!  Thanks Debbie for being a great hostess!  Here are the cards I demonstrated last night and also our make and take. One of these days I'm going to remember to take my camera with me and catch us all having fun!

This is a card that I cased from Inking Idaho--it uses the chalkboard technique!  Really love the Hearts a Flutter framelits and matching stamp set for the banners.  I used the new flower trim.  I just tapped it with ink and a sponge dauber to change it to a primrose petal colored flower.  The sentiment is the stamp that comes with the pop up posies pack in the Spring catalog.

This card uses the Oh, Hello set from the spring catty along with Loving Thoughts from the main catalog.  I used the Flower Trim again, but this time dyed the flowers with water and 8 - 10 drops of reinker.  The card I cased this from had the same set up, but I haven't bought the doilies so I trimmed my new oval framelit cut out with the finishing touches edgelit from the main catalog.  

Sorry for the shadow on this photo--just couldn't get a good shot of it!  This uses all Sale-a-Bration items except for the Baker's twine and brads.  The SAB stamp set is called Pretty Petites and the matching punch is also a SAB item.  I cased this card from Heather Klump's blog Downstairs Designs.

Here's a card I created using the Pop Up Posies Kit from the spring catalog.  I also used the From the Heart set that's found in the main catalog.  Some Tea for Two designer paper and crochet trim with an antique brad finish this off.  Here's the inside of the card.

The inside sentiment is "From the Heart."

This was our make and take.  I cased this from Dawn Olchefske.  It's a simple card using the Peek a Boo bigz die.  The stamp set we used was from SAB--Patterned Occasions.  The little elephant is hiding under my flap.  The dsp is More Amore.

Well I'm off to my stamp room to put stuff away and create some cards!
