I added some punched flowers on this one.

I think this one is my favorite!!

I had enough die-cuts left over to make 4 more cards (for a total of 12).  I used discontinued Stampin' Up product from my stash to embellish.

Another "extra" card.

For $20, I created 8 cards with cute, cute envelopes (plus 4 extra cards).  I just needed my Snail adhesive -- everything else was in the kit (cards, printed envelopes, patterned paper, 3 sheets of die-cuts, pre-tied ribbon bows, paper clips, 2 sheets of adhesive strips, and 1 sheet of Dimensionals).  And I have this 10-piece stamp set to use over and over again and 2 ink-spots to use for other projects.  I love it because people pay $20 for a card class to make 12 cards -- BUT THEY DON'T GET A STAMP SET TO TAKE HOME WITH THEM!!

I had an awesome time at the July RubberQueen meeting.  We had a shoebox swap so each of us could make 20 cards that other RubberQueen's had designed.  I will be posting some of those in the future, but today I am featuring the versatility of the Watercolor Words Stamp Set.  This is another new stamp set that I love because of the "watercolor" font used in the sentiments.  You also get an awesome bang for your buck with this $26 photopolymer set (with 11 stamps!!).  The first card was my swap card and the other four cards were the make'n takes designed by Ronda Wade (with a few little changes) -- all of the cards use the Watercolor Words Stamp Set:

This is my shoebox swap card using the Watercolor Words Stamp Set for the sentiment, flowers, and leaf and the Writing Notes Background Stamp on the Whisper White Card Stock layer.  I also used the new White Perfect Accents for the center of the flowers.
All of Ronda's make'n takes are "punch cards" using the new In-Colors Card Stock, Designer Series Paper, and Ink Pads.

This is Ronda's design, but we did not make it at the meeting.  I did not have the designer paper, so I improvised by making the striped layer using the new Brushstrokes Background Stamp, which goes so well with the Watercolor Words Stamp Set

Hope you like!

Until next time,
