This was another card we did at my Stamp Camp today. We had a lot of fun.

It features the Razzle Dazzle stamp set and Blueberry Crisp paper. Sahara Sand is the base. Finished size is 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 inches.

This is one of the cards we are doing today at the Spring Fling Stamp Camp that I am hosting. The size of this is is 6 x 3-1/2 inches. The image is by Stampin' Up! and is from the Just Believe set. I used a mask to sponge sponge the Center with Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive inks and then a little Chocolate Chip to distress it a little. Then I stamped the image with Chocolate Chip. The sentiment from a retired SU set.

WELCOME! This is my entry for the DIVAS Facebook group's Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop. Our challenge is to use stamps, papers, tools, embellishments, etc. anything that's at least 6 mos. or older to make a card, SB layout, paper project, etc.
You probably just arrived here from Barbara Wibel's blog - Made for Keeps.
My card is made using a retired Stampin' Up set called Office Ephemera. I would say I have not used this set in almost 2 years. I stamped the 'just a note,' pen and the ink well stamps with VersaMark and then heat embossed them with gold embossing powder. I then sponged on distress ink and stamped some other stamps from the set randomly. I also embossed the edges of the torn paper by dipping it in the Versamark pad and then sprinkling on the embossing powder. I thought it looked better than having the plain white edge or sponging it with the distress ink. While the stamp set is no longer available from SU, I hope by my using it for this challenge shows how versatile and timeless the stamps are. I would also have to say that I have not done gold embossing in a while as well and I have not used the Twill Tape since I originally purchased it. See the card supply list below for all items used in this card.

Set of thank you cards using the One Sheet Wonder Technique. I took one sheet of 8-1/2 x 11 Whisper White and randomly stamped the bird stamp from the Always set with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I sponged on color (Peach Parfait) then stamped over tthat with the other stamps from the same set with Peach Parfait and Pear Pizzazz inks. I trimmed them out a variety of ways to make the card set and used a variety of embellishments and tools. The Thank You Kindly set (available in wood mounted and My Digital Studio downloadable set) was used for the sentiment. Scroll down to see photos of cards individually.

Card made for Fellow DIVAS member Sketch Challenge over at Paper Craft Planet. I used the Love Stamp from the Filled with Love set, and stamped on white paper after inking it with markers. The background is embossed using the SU Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder for the Big Shot. I used a technique on the background called Heat Embossing on Dry Embossing by using my brayer to apply VersaMark ink to the raised areas of the embossing and then applying SU's Iridescent Ice embossing powder to give it some shine and sparkle.

Making sympathy cards is never a pleasurable occasion when you need one so that is why I do them in batches when I don't need one. I made up a couple of sets at the request of the staff at my husband's office so they will have some ready to send out when they need to. I always make a couple for us too to have on hand. This one is made using this flower image from the very versatile set Elements of Style set. Simply stamped on Whisper White card stock with Black StazOn and colored with markers. So Saffron card stock is used for the accent color. I used the SU Modern Label and oval punches for the sentiment (not SU) and added little pearl stickers from the Basic Pearls.
All SU items used in the card above check out my SU web store and if you need any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Stamp Set: Elements of Style
