SUper Friends November Swap

Hi!  Happy Monday!  Using today to get caught up on a lot of things . . . including blog posts!  So, here are some great projects from my SUper Friends demonstrator group's November card swap.  Our swap was done "shoebox style," which meant each swapper brought a sample card and the supplies to create it, and then everyone created the cards during our meeting.  Great fun!

First up is a card designed by Motoe:

For this card, we used the Expressions thinlits dies from the Holiday Catalog, as well as the Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper, silver 1/8" ribbon, and Northern Flurry Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

The next card is designed by Nancy Poon, and is a clever way to use up scraps of papers and ribbons . . . we layered them behind the snowflake die cut:

The die cut is from the Festive Flurry Framelits, which are still available from Stampin' Up! on the holiday carryover list.  The Merry Christmas is part of the Sassy Salutations stamp set (on page 39 of the Idea Book).

For her card, Jana was inspired by a card by Regina Andari that she saw and liked on Stampin' Connection (couldn't easily find this card on Regina's blog, but here is the link to it if you'd like to check out more of her work), then Jana put her own twists on it:

The card uses the Wanderlust Photopolymer Stamp set.

Agnes designed this elegant Thanksgiving card with a twist:

Agnes' card uses the Tags 4 You stamp set and Sweater Weather Designer Paper from the Holiday Catalog. In addition to the stamped tag, we punched a Tangerine Tango and Cherry Cobbler tag, which we cut in half and then layered under the stamped tag for a neat effect!   To see more samples of this type of card and a link to a tutorial on how to make these, please click here.

For my card, I decided to play with the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit to create a fun background -- we used the stencil from the kit and some Gold Encore ink to create some golden polka dots behind the Santa image from Santa's List:

Santa and his Champagne Glimmer Paper frame were die cut using the Circles Thinlits.  We also cut "Merry" from the Expressions thinlits die out of Gold Foil paper.

For the inside of the card, we stamped snowflakes and "Believe" from the Snowflake Soiree stamp set, which is also still available on the holiday carryover list:

Hope you enjoyed these!
