Stampin' Up Spotlight

Next week I am having a Stampin' Up workshop.  These are always lots of fun....a gathering of friends, making cards, eating, laughing..............I'm looking forward to the workshop and have started my "wish" list. 

I became acquainted with Stampin' Up a couple of years ago and I am very satified with the products they sell.  Anyway, this really isn't a "commercial" for Stampin' Up, it's a blog post to show you some cards that I've made recently with Stampin' Up product.

I made this card last week for a friend who had surgery.  The inspiration for the card came directly from a Stampin' Up catalog.  Okay, one more "plug" for Stampin' Up......the catalogs that they issue also includes some really cute card and scrapbook ideas.  Alright, back to blog mode.  Here is a photo of the "thinking of you" card

Aren't those kites absolutely adorable??  I stamped them on white card stock, cut the images out and attached them to the front of the card with foam adhesive to make them "stand out".  The polka dot heart was also punched out and attached with a glue dot.  The stamp set, "Send Me Soaring", includes the kite stamps, clouds and some sentiments (although not the "thinking of you" sentiment that I used on the card).

And here are several cards using the "Tea Shoppe" stamp set from Stampin' Up.  The inspiration for these cards came from the Splitcoast Stampers website.

(The birthday stamp is a Stampin' Up product but not part of the Tea Shoppe stamp set.)

(The 'happy birthday' stamp is a Stampin' Up product but not part of the Tea Shoppe stamp set.)

And favorite (the sentiment on this one IS part of the Tea Shoppe stamp set).

I love the quote by Louisa May Alcott, "Stay" is a charming word in a friend's vocabulary. 

I hope this post has inspired you to "get your craft on!"
