Oh So Eclectic (FMS331)

I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge today.  I had a few of the silver embossed foliage on my table so I thought I would let those guide my card today.  I also think I’m in love with the Layered Leaves Dynamic embossing folder.  I popped the panel up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The Best Wishes comes from Cake Soirée and I used the Classic Label punch and then put the label back in the punch to shorten it.

Occasions Catalog Swap Cards

The best part of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is getting together with your fellow demonstrators.  I went to a gathering on Saturday and participated in two swaps.  This post is for the Occasions Catalog swaps, I’ll have a post later for the Sale-a-bration swap and one for the make & takes Susan Campfield created for us.  It was just fabulous!

This is the card I created using the new Sunshine & Rainbows bundle, this was also one of the cards we created at my last Cookies & Cards class.  (You will get to see more of the bundle on my blog starting next week.)
