1000th Stamper Cards Received - 04

This continues our edition of "1000th Member - Late Night Stampers".  :)

This was one of the first stamp sets I owned.  Pick a Petal.  Jenny Fulton is the creater of the card.  Though retired, it was just such a neat stamp set.  My upline, Judy Garza, has a huge bag of cards made with this stamp set - but each of them was totally different - and wasn't a flower!  I remember she had a mouse and candles...but I'd have to look at the bag again to see all of those neat ideas.

Jody Townsend's card definitely got washed out in this picture.  Hers is made with a retired stamp set as well, but her execution of it intrigued me.  I had to ask my upline what she did - because the stamped part didn't look like stamping.  It looked like a printed sheet of paper!  And gorgeous!  Evidently what she did is called the crayon-resis technique, on Stampin' Up!'s high quality glossy white cardstock.  It's one I'm going to HAVE to try soon!  Want to learn how to do it?  Contact me, and we'll play and learn together.  :)

Joy Hakes created this card.  It's another neat one!  At first, I thought it was a retired DSP on the top (designer series paper), but my upline neatly pointed out that the flowers are from our "For All You Do" stamp set, and she did the dashes and dotted outline herself with a black Stampin' Write marker.  How nifty!  Do you like this effect?  I do!  Better hurry, though, because "For All You Do" is a stamp set retiring after May 31, 2012.  Order your set now!

Ok, Julia Sager is another Demo that I CASEd from.  However, in this instance, I think the only thing I bothered to change was the green card.  I think she might've used Pear Pizazz, and I ended up using Certainly Celery.  NOT a big difference at all, in the scheme of things.  I just couldn't help it - it used some DSP I got for free, called Twitterpated, from our Occasions Mini.  However, I wasn't a real big fan of this particular batch of DSP, while everyone else in the world seemed to be, and I really ended up liking how this card looked with it on there.  This card is going on my card buffet, in honor of my mother, who got the "You're My Type" stamp set for her birthday.  That stamp set appears in the Occasions Mini as well - so order by 4/30/12 to get yours while they last!

Karen Miller did an excellent job of watercoloring in this card, which uses the stamp set Awash with Flowers.  The first thing that hit me on this card were the bright colors, and the color combination.  It's a neat one!  The stamp set used retires on May 31, 2012, so order now if you would love to do some watercoloring of your own.

Kathy Shapland's card really turned out neat - despite my camera's best intentions to sabotage the picture.  It uses embossing, watercoloring, the Big Shot die-cutting, and accessories. And then it sits up!  Gorgeous!
