Guest Stamper … Connie H.

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

The weekend is here, and looking at the weather reports for Wisconsin … it maybe a three day weekend!  They’re predicting lows of 30 degree’s below zero for Monday afternoon. Burrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

If they close the store again … I’m hoping to get some extra stamping done.  Sweet!

Today I have a guest stamper … my friend and Star member Connie.  Each year I host a demonstrator retreat where the girls from my group, the Star’s, get together and swap cards, stamp, chat, laugh, and have a whole bunch of fun.

This is Connie’s swap …

She used the Sketched Birthday stamp set, that we received at the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference last year.  She teamed that up with the “Epic Day This and That” Designer Series Paper.

The greeting was punched out using the 1-3/4″ scallop and backed with Gumball Green Core’dinations Paper.  Connie used the Window Frame Collections die to cut it out and embellished it with the cute little 1/8″ mini brads.

You will also see the “Needlepoint Border” Embossing folder was used to create additional texture to the card.

Now … if the front of this card isn’t cute enough, check out the surprise inside …

Isn’t that sweet!  What a nice surprise for your birthday!  The cupcake was made with the “Cupcake Builder Punch.

I must say, our demonstrator retreats are a lot of fun, and I always come home with fabulous cards from the girls.  I thank Connie for this one.
