Review of Stampin' Up! sessions ....

Note - this is a long post with lots of photos

....  I just realised that I haven't shared the cards that I've made recently at Karin's Stampin' Up! sessions.  As stated in other posts - most of the cards we make at these sessions are CASEd from other SU designers - I don't have the names of the other designers - sorry.  But if you recognise your card - let me know and I'll put in the credit!

I've lots to share, starting with our Down line meeting and this clean, simple design - which I put in Jonathan's suitcase on his recent trip to San Francisco.  I left the inside blank for me to fill!!

Stamps: SU - Express Yourself (hostess), Mosaic Madness
Inks: SU - Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight
Accessories: SU Card - Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight; SU DP - Tempting Turquoise; SU Punches - 1¾" circle, Blossom, Boho Blossoms; Gems; EF - Polka Dots

Next we had a got at faux iris folding - which was fun, but I'm not sure I'll do it again!!  I decorated the inside with a few more candles!

Stamps: SU - Cycle Celebration, A Dozen Thoughts
Inks: SU -Raspberry Ripple, Crisp Cantaloupe
Accessories: SU Card - Whisper White, Raspberry Ripple, Crisp Cantaloupe; SU DP - Birthday Basics; SU Punches - 2½" circle; Gems

The last card in this session was a fun shadow box frame card - very easy to make and looks super.  I kept the inside really simple on this one.

Stamps: SU - Kind and Cosy, Four You
Inks: SU - Night of Navy
Dies: SU/Sizzix - Chalk Talk Framelits
Accessories: SU Card - Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Night of Navy; SU DP - Gingham Garden; SU Punches - Small Heart; Daffodil Delight Stitched Ribbon; EF - Stripes

The very last item we made was a pouch in which we can put sweets!!  This is really easy.

This next set of cards was made at one of Karin's regular SU sessions - where I can get to play with stamps I don't have!!  I'm starting with this fabulous Autumn thank you card - Love the colours in this card.  On the inside I simply stamped some more of the grunge stamps.  CASED from Jill Coleman's original - here!

Stamps: SU - Magnificent Maple, Gorgeous Grunge, Another Thank You
Inks: SU - Pool Party, Early Espresso, Sahara Sand, Cajun Craze
Accessories: SU Card - Pool Party, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla; Natural Trim Ribbon

Next up is a birthday card which I think is just perfect for a guy.  This is not a set I'd normally get, but I do like this card.  For the inside I simply stamped the birds again.

Stamps: SU - Wetlands
Inks: SU - Marina Mist, Baked Brown Sugar; Stazon - Jet Black
Accessories: SU Card - Baked Brown Sugar, Marina Mist, Very Vanilla, Watercolour Paper; Embossing Folder - Pretty Print Texture; Distress Tool; Linen Thread

Now another birthday card - but completely different.  Using die cut flowers and an aperture! 

Stamps: SU - Express Yourself (hostess)
Inks: SU - Baked Brown Sugar
Dies: SU/Sizzix - Deco Labels Framelits; Little Leaves Sizzlit
Accessories: SU Card - Whisper White, Gumball Green, Crushed Curry; SU DP - Baked Brown Sugar; SU Punches - Boho Blossoms, ½" Circle; Linen Thread

And my last card for is another birthday card - very clean and simple it is too.

Stamps: SU - Four You
Inks: SU - Bermuda Bay
Accessories: SU Card - Whisper White, Baked Brown Sugar, Bermuda Bay, Crisp Cantaloupe; SU DP - Bermuda Bay; SU Punch - Bird Builder; Gems

I've only one more item to share with you.  We did a swap at the Downline meeting - we each made a card front and swapped - I based my card front of the card I made for 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown at the end of September.

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Festive Flurry
Inks: Versamark; Brilliance - Lightening Black; SU - Early Espresso
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder; SU DP - Last year's Christmas pack; SU Punch - Label Bracket; SU Card - Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Gumball Green

If you've made it this far - thank you so much for your attention.  I always have lots of fun at these sessions and come away with lots of ideas and colour combinations that I wouldn't have thought of!!  That's all for now.  See you soon.
