February Stamp-A-Stack Cards

We made these cards at this month's stamp-a-stack, and every single one of them is cased from another fabulous demonstrator. ;) Can you tell I've been running short on inspiration lately? LOL! This first card is based on one I made at our last demo shoebox swap and the original card was designed by Suzanne Askey. She did her card in purples, and I needed something a little more gender-neutral, so I went with blues.

Stamps: Boho Blooms, Vintage Labels
Paper: Bordering Blue, Night of Navy, Shimmery White
Ink: Versamark, Night of Navy
Accessories: Wide Oval punch, Whisper White organza ribbon, Big Shot, SU! Backgrounds I texture plate

Card #2 is cased from an adorable trade I received at Leadership from Winnie Lee. This card was a BIG hit! I changed a couple of things on the card for my stamp-a-stack - the original card had a panel of Old Olive dsp, which I switched out for the Old Olive panel embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I also used Real Read for the accent color, instead of Rose Red on the original trade. So stinkin' cute!

Stamps: Fox & Friends, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White, Pawsitively Prints dsp
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Accessories: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, 1 3/8" circle punch, Scallop punch, Modern Label punch, Small Heart punch, Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon

This card was also inspired by a trade I received at Leadership from Lisa Schmid. I changed up the colors and I added the ribbon and sentiment, but I loved how Lisa used the Large Oval punch to make a vase - so clever! This is a great all-purpose card and could be used for just about any occasion.

Stamps: Happy Moments
Paper: Soft Suede, Rose Red, Confetti Cream, Thoroughly Modern dsp
Ink: Basic Brown, Rose Red, Old Olive
Accessories: Scallop Trim corner punch, Large Oval punch, Small Oval punch, Crop-a-Dile, Rose Red grosgrain ribbon, hemp twine

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. See you back here next week - 'bye for now!
