Have you ever been surrounded by some of the very most talented stampers in one night?  Well, this happens to me every month when I attend the RubberQueen monthly meeting.  Last night was no exception.  Our challenge for July was to create 4 projects using the new Stampin' Up! designer series paper.  Let me tell you, these ladies created beautiful projects (cards and 3-D).  If my pictures turn out, I will be showing some of these in the next couple of weeks.  You already saw one of my projects in my post last week.  Today I am posting the cards to go with that 3-D project.  All of my cards have a layer of designer series paper from the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Pack and use the new Blendabilities.  Here is what I came up with:

I stamped the designer paper using the I Love Lace Background Stamp, then stamped directly on another piece of designer paper using the Bloom With Hope Hostess Stamp Set (one of my very favorite floral stamps in the new catalog), and then "fussy cut" the images to adhere on the designer paper.  I love all the texture!

I stamped directly on the designer paper, using the Sweetbriar Rose Stamp, colored with the Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities, and then added a bow using the new Blushing Bride 1/4" Cotton Ribbon (using my scissors to curl the ends -- awesome ribbon!!)

Another card using the I Love Lace Background Stamp directly on the designer paper and "fussy cutting" the Bloom With Hope flowers that were stamped directly on designer paper.

Another card, using a different design from the paper pack with the image stamped directly on paper (I used the same Blendabilities color (Rich Razzleberry), but notice how the color changed based on the color of the designer paper.  I added some Gold Sequin Trim pieces that I first colored with the Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities because I had ink smudges on the card (yep, no reason to through it away just add a little accessories to cover).
Until Next Time,

"Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve. . . . But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."  --  Joshua 24:15
