Label Love Card Sampler

I wanted to show the versatility of Stampin' Up!'s Label Love stamp set so I created a pre-buy card class for my customers. I paired the Label Love stamp set with the Artisan Label punch to create an all occasion card sampler. Below are the cards samples:

Label Love #4Label Love #5





Label Love #1Label Love #2







Label Love #6


Label Love #3







If you weren't able to attend the class in June, I have an option for you! I have created a document with, pictures, supply list including card stock sizes, and directions for all 6 cards made at my June class. There are 6 pages in all – one per card.

"How can I get the directions?" you ask. Easy, two ways:

1. Purchase the Label Love Bundle (page 32 of the big catalog #132723 (wood) $34.75 or #132722 (clear) $28.75) from my online store and then send me an e-mail telling me you made the purchase. I will confirm your purchase within 24 hours and e-mail the document to you. Click on the order now button near the top of the right hand side bar to place your order.


2. If you already have a demo or already have purchased the bundle then you can buy just the directions for only $2.95 using my Buy Now PayPal button below.

Do You Like Pushing The Petal To The Metal?

Well, this birthday card is perfect for all those guys (and gals) that do!  I used Stampin' Up!'s Need for Speed and Bring On the Cake stamp sets to make this card for my January card buffet class. It is another 2013 convention swap card I received. I have misplaced the original in my craft room, which badly needs reorganizing (on my to do list).  If this was based on your card please let me know and I will give you credit.

Stampin' Up! Need For Speed and Bring On The Cake Jeannine Tarrio 2013 Convention swap

I also made this card using the 1/4" Basic Gray stitched ribbon centered on the Basic Gray card stock which makes it look like the center line of the "road".  I gave that one away already.

Need For Speed

1.    Emboss 5 ¼” x 4” white CS with Big Shot and the Stripes folder. Sponge edges with black.
2.    Emboss Basic Gray with Houndstooth folder and the Big Shot.  Sponge with black. (see sample)
3.    Adhere gray piece to white piece. Tie stitched gray ribbon around card and knot to right side.
4.    Glue to card base.
5.    Stamp greeting on small white  piece with Black. Glue to black rectangle.
6.    Adhere black piece to card with dimensionals.
7.    Stamp car on scrap with black Stazon, color with Marina Mist Marker and fussy cut.
8.    Adhere car to card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
