Leadership Swaps - Valentines

One of the things I enjoy about Stampin' Up! events is swapping cards with other demonstrators.  Here are three Valentine cards that I received when I was at Leadership at the Gaylord Opryland.

All three cards use the Red Glimmer paper that is in the new Occasions mini card.  The glimmer paper allows you to add red glitter to your projects without the clean up when you use regular glitter.  All glimmer papers are not the same.  You want a paper that can be cut, die cut and punched and has glitter all the way across the page without gaps.  As you can tell, I've been pleased with the quality of Stampin' Up!'s glimmer paper.

This card was made by Katrina Merriman.  She used the Love Impressions designer series paper and the Be My Valentine stamp.  She textured the Love Impressions paper by running it through the crimper and lightly sponging Basic Gray Classic Ink on the paper.


Judy Almanzor made this card which also uses the Love Impressions designer series paper.  She die cut the scalloped square using the Scallop Square Duo Bigz Die.  She used the XOXO stamp set in the Occasions mini catalog and the small heart punch.

This third card was made by Peggy Taylor.  She used the First Edition specialty designer series paper.  This paper is lighter weight than most of our paper which makes it easier to crumple or use for papier-mache projects.  Now you don't have to rip pages out of old books any more.

I received lots of swap cards, so keep checking back to see more of them.

Creatively yours,
