Here are 3 cards we will be making in my neighborhood stamping club next week. I used both current and retired Stampin Up products.
One of the ladies wanted to make a fall card and a Halloween card. I used the new Stampin Up coredinations paper for the leaves. After they were embossed and sanded, I used two different colors of inkpads on them. What is really great about the retired Stampin Up designer paper is that it also coordinates with a lot of the current Stampin Up colors!
I used a retired window sheet with polka dots on it over the chevron embossed card on the Halloween card. When I went to use my black Stazon inkpad to stamp the Halloween cat, owl, and Boo, my inkpad had dried up and I had no refill. So I tried the white Stazon...
I think the card looks even better with the white than the black would have - it not only matches the designer paper for the flags, it gives it an eerie feeling to it, perfect for Halloween!
The satin striped ribbon is gray and black, a current Stampin Up item, and I put the new googly eyes in the Boo. I can't get over how much I am enjoying making Halloween cards now - I was one of those practical people who didn't want to spend the $$ on many seasonal stuff (other than Christmas). But now I am having fun with the different holidays and seasons doing Stampin Up lol.
The last card is a retired Stampin Up designer paper with pinwheels and pacific point ribbon. The greeting and framelit I used for it are current. I love how the framelits make the greetings look fancy and special!!
I found out that my recently purchased digital camera's photos come out as really big files when I transfer them to my computer....so been using a Microsoft program to compress them to take up less space. But I see it also makes the pictures a little less clear....I am continuing to learn how to use my camera to get the best pictures of my projects - wonder how long it will take with the trial and error method I'm using??!!
