We had my Maine Stampers Team Meeting on Sunday and had a card swap. I have to tell you that they were outstanding!! Well, I am not going to just tell you, I am going to show you . Thank you everyone.
All of these used a different embossing folder for the backgound. Check them out.

Don't you think they did a great job? More swaps tomorrow.
Okay I have to admit that I skipped over Stampin' Up!'s Paisleys & Posies stamp set. I did not intend to buy it, no way. It remined me of the THAT pant suit I made out of blue paisley fabric. At the time I made it, I thought it was beautiful (I can't imagine what I was thinking). Now when I remember , it was heideous! Well fast forward to last week — my team member Carol M-C got together and stamped and she brought her new demo sets. Well there was the Paislely & Posies stamp set. Well I am not one to back down from a challenge, in fact, I do my best work when I have a limited # of supplies and concentrate on making everyone love it. Well I think I accomplished my goal, now I love it and it will be on my next order!
So you must be waiting to see how I could make anyone love this stamp? Wait no more here it is:
Straight on view:
I also made two other cards with this set which I will post later and I love them all. I think the secret was adding the Copper Foil paper. I struggled with the colors and their design until I added the Copper Foil to the mix. Beautiful and all the colors work. Thanks for stopping by my blog and if you have any questions or comments, please add them in the comment section below.
Have you checked out Thankful Forest Friends stamp set on page 43 of Stampin' Up!'s new Holiday Catalog? There are so many possibilities for this set. You could make a baby card, children's and masculine birthday cards, fall cards, etc. Below is a card I made using the set when I first played with it.

This is a pre-buy class and I will be posting the dates of my classes this weekend. I can accomodate a different day if I have 4 or more that will attend. Contact me if you are interested in any of the classes I am scheduling. Also watch your e-mail for a flyer next week.
We all need thank you cards and fall is no different. This fall card happens to be one of the cards in my Stampin' Up! Vintage Leaves Class. All the cards use different techniques and this card uses the easiest technique.
