Flower Shop cards to share!

It has been such a busy summer for me and I have not been posting as much as I would like.   SO, now that summer is almost over :(  I hope to post consistently.    I have been stamping and have lots to share....

For the past 3 years, I have met up with a fellow Stampin' Up! demo in Iowa a couple weeks after convention.  I share my swaps and she shares things she has done.   THEN WE STAMP.   This year I let her pick some of my swaps she would like to recreate (as long as we had the stamp set).   Here are the swap cards and what we chose to make:

This first card is the swap I received at convention from Mary Hodgman

 And here are the cards I made using the colors, inks, tools and stamps we had.  We did some major stamping, each making 5 cards.   It was easy, if you are cutting cardstock and making a mess, you might as well make a bunch of cards, instead of just 1.  I should have taken pictures of Becky's cards because they looked different than mine.

This card is actually not from a swap at convention, but from Connie Heisey's Monthly Meeting as a Make and Take

  And here are my creations....We used some of the ribbon from last year's SAB.   I did not like that ribbon at all, it was so flimsy and small that I had a hard time using it.   BUT now I don't have any left.  WOOHOO.

We used the Flower shop stamp set for these cards too because I had it with me and it was already mounted on blocks, we just had to clean the ink off from the stamps...The Thank You on the card on the right is from the Hostess set, Express Yourself, I have used that set SO much and I have only had it since June!  

That's all for today!   I hope some of these cards inspire you to create.


  1. Carol I really love these cards with the pink flowers.

  2. Thanks, that is my new favorite set and matching punch. I'll show you tomorrow.
