All 5 Stamp-A-Stack cards

Hi! Hope you are all having a fantastic weekend! Here are my 5 cards that we stamped at my Stamp-A-Stack this weekend. Enjoy!


For this card, I was inspired by a card that I saw on the Clean and Simple blog. Check it out! It's a great blog!
Supplies (all by Stampin' Up!):
Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly, Sincere Saluations
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, Whisper White Craft
Paper: Confetti White, Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Pink Pirouette
Accessories: Eyelet Border Punch, White Gel Pen, Paper Snips, Dimensionals

Look on page 132 of the Spring-Summer 2009 Idea Book & Catalog, you will see where the idea for this card came from. I just changed it a bit to go with the supplies that I had on hand.
Supplies (all by Stampin' Up!):
Stamps: Celebrate Everything, One of a Kind
Ink: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip
Paper: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Whisper White
Accessories: 1/4" Circle Punch (retired), Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon

Splitcoaststampers has a gallery for clean and simple cards, and they host a weekly sketch. This card follows the sketch that was posted last week. The picture did not turn out too great. You can't see the embossed tempting turquoise cardstock really well. I used my Textuz Plates and my Big Shot. The two So Saffron Stars are popped up on Dimensionals. I absolutely love this card!!
Supplies (all by Stampin' Up!):
Stamps: Birthday Wish ($6.95 in the Under $10 section of the it!)
Ink: Real Red
Paper: So Saffron, Real Red, Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Star Punch, Large Star Punch, Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon, Texturz Background Plates I with Big Shot, Dimensionals

This card came from a card that I liked on Kristina Werner's blog. I met her at convention last year! She is a sweetheart! There is not a day that goes by that I don't visit her blog. She is super-talented and I love her cards. They are so clean and crisp. Here is her card. I again changed it a bit for my version.
Supplies (all by Stampin' Up!):
Stamps: A Little Birthday Wish
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Paper: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Hawaii Papaya (retired)
Accessories: Scallop Border Punch, Cherry Blossom Die with Big Shot, 1/4" Circle Punch (retired), Crystal Effects, Dimensionals

last, but not least...#5

I saw this card on SCS, and loved the layout. Did I tell you I love to look for layouts that I like and recreate them??? LOL!!! That is how I work!!! Again, it's difficult to see in the picture, but I used one of the Texturz Plates on the Kiwi Kiss Cardstock.
Supplies (all by Stampin' Up!):
Stamps: Botanical Blooms (free set during Sale-A-Bration!)
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White
Accessories: Paper Piercing Tools, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Pink Pirouette Striped Ribbon, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, Jumbo Eyelets, Crop-o-dile, Dimensionals

I hope you enjoyed these cards, and it has given you some inspiration to stamp a couple of your own cards. Please leave me a comment and tell me which one is your favorite!! I would love to hear from you! It's really easy to leave a comment.

Have a great week!
