Stampin' Up Party at Jamie's




I had a great time last night at Jamie's Stampin' Up! party. Thanks to Jamie for having us all over and to Yvonne for showing us some great techniques. :) We made a couple of cards that are very different than my normal style, but I had fun with them, especially the collage one. The tropical one is a bit bright for me, but I like the brayering effect, I'll be playing with that more! We used the SU piercing template to punch all the holes in the green card stock layer, then we used a black gel pen to connect the holes for the faux stitching.

For the Father's Day card, we made a little pocket using eyelets and the SU slit punch for the insert to hold a gift card. Please excuse the Xmas gift card....I borrowed it from my kids little toy cash register just to show you how it works. lol :) Woohoo, I have my Father's Day card all ready for my Dad, now to decide where to get a gift certificate from...

Well, I wanted to post these pics as I hadn't had a chance to yet today. Friends of mine came over tonight after I got the kiddies to sleep, to watch a couple of movies, I had a nice night, however it's now 2:16 am and I have to get up early to get the girls ready to go to birthday party. I must be crazy in the head! Oh, these eyes are gonna be tired in the morning! lol :) I'll be back soon...

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Thanks again for coming to my party, Julie! I'm glad you had fun! It was nice for me to do something a little different than my usual simple cards! :) Have fun at Diego's birthday today! Ella and I can't make it- she is sick with a stomach bug. Seems to be on the mend though. Take care!
