Stamper's 10 Card for tonight

Ok, so I love glitter and swirly designs!!! This card looks much better in person because the halogram highlights glitter is a little more subtle and the pretty in pink stamped flowers show up a little more clearly. But, you can get the jist of the card.

Stamp Sets: Baroque Motifs
Ink: Pretty in Pink, versamark
Paper: Certainly Celery, Berry Bliss DSP, WW
Accessories: Hologram Highlights embossing powder, heat gun, pink taffeta ribbon, ticket corner punch.

The fold of the card and design elements, I CASED from another blog yesterday and thought I would give it a try I changed the DSP and stamp set but went with the basic layout and added the ticket corner(I'm sorry I don't remember who had the tutorial on it if you email me, I will link your site if you want me to). It is a 4x12 base and you score at 4 and 8 and then diagonally in the middle section. This will give you a 4x4 card when closed.

Good Afternoon, I finally got my printer reinstalled to be able to upload these cards. I had my quarterly Stamp-A-Stack last Sunday and have been busy cutting paper. Originally, I had cancelled it because of lack of interest. (Not one person RSVP'd) But, on Thursday before the event, I had 6 people say that they were coming. Well, needless to say, I didn't have anything prepared or an order placed for supplies. I told the ladies I would see what I could come up with. Well, I called my wonderful upline and asked her if she had cards designed for her upcoming stamp-a-stack. Of course, being the organized person that she is, she did! She let me borrow the designs (which are posted) Isn't she super talented? Thank you Nancy! 8o) She did say that one of the cards (the so saffron one) is a CASE from her adopted upline. (Thank you Terri) The ladies seemed to love the designs and we had a great time.

The first 3 cards using the Tart & Tangy Set they did one of each design saving some $$$ because I didn't have to buy 3 or 4 packs of Summer Picnic DSP for one sheet out of each!

I reallly love this Just B set. The Elegant Eggplant tab is attached to a plain piece of WW cardstock and the Celery DSP is notched using just the top notch of the rounded tab punch. I sill try to remember to post this card seperate to show you the layout.
The next card, Nancy did hers in the River Rock and Very Vanilla and made this lovely monochromatic card for sympathy, wedding, birthday or whatever. I didn't have River Rock Double stitched ribbon but had 3 spools of the Groovy Guava Ribbon so I went with Guava.
Love this Sassy Susie set...........and we used another kind of paper from the Summer Picnic DSP collection.
Lastly, is the So Saffron card that was CASED from Terri. Nancy added the Jumbo Wheel rolled across the VV strip. I love how the Ribbon is set on this card!

Thanks again Nancy, you are a LIFESAVER!!!!!
